Laser hair removal FAQs
Q: How old do I have to be to have laser hair removal?
A: We only treat clients 18 years or older, this is because hormonal changes before this age may mean that your hair will still come back even after treatment.
Q: Can I have laser hair removal if I’m breastfeeding?
A: You can have laser hair removal whilst breastfeeding, the only area we don’t advise treatment on is around the nipple area, however all other body areas are fine to treat.
Q: Can I have laser hair removal if I’m pregnant?
A: If you are pregnant, we cannot treat you for laser hair removal. This is because of the lack of information about the effect on the fetus, and yours and your baby’s safety is our key concern.
Q: Can I have laser hair removal if I have keloid scars?
A: If you have keloid scars, or a predisposition to keloid scarring, we would assess the areas to be treated on a case by case basis. Keloid scars are a type of a scar that could be either red of purely white as a normal scar. This type of scar extends the original size of the wound, meaning that it expands the size of the injury.
Q: Will I need time to recover after treatments?
A: You may experience some reddening of the skin around where the hair used to be, which could last from a few minutes to 24 or 48 hours. For two days after each treatment, avoid exposure to the sun and don’t use the gym, saunas, steam rooms etc.
Q: How do I know if I’m suitable?
A: We have the safest and most effective lasers which allow us to treat all skin types.
Q: Does laser hair removal hurt?
A: Our Cynosure Elite+ lasers treat the area with a cooling jet of air to keep you feeling comfortable during your laser hair removal treatments. Our Diode lasers have a chilled applicator and we also use a cooling gel to keep discomfort to a minimum. We can apply a local anaesthetic to the area if needed; however, you will get an idea of how the treatment feels during the initial test patch. If you are used to waxing, laser hair removal is often described as less painful.
Q: Can I have laser hair removal after receiving treatment for cancer?
A: If it is under a year since you have been all clear, you cannot have laser hair removal. If you have been clear for one to three years, you will need a letter from your specialist for us to pass on to our Medical Director for review. Unfortunately, if you have had any lymph nodes removed from under your arms or breasts, you can’t have laser hair removal under your arms, even if you are all clear.
Q: How is laser hair removal different from other treatments?
A: Laser hair removal requires a short-term commitment to achieve long-term results. Results are not instantaneous but once your treatments have been completed, you won’t have to think about regular hair removal again.
