Hair Removal

Shaving, waxing and plucking are not only time-consuming and short-term, but often result in irritation or ingrown hairs. With laser hair removal, that can become a long-lost memory, together with unwanted hair.

What does laser hair
removal do?

Hair removal with laser works by targeting hair follicles with concentrated light.
The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, which then converts to heat.

This heat damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth without harming the surrounding skin. The treatment can remove up to 90% of unwanted hair, reducing both the amount of hair and its thickness.

a breast lift surgery

A breast lift (or a mastopexy) is a surgical intervention aimed at addressing sagging breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue.

What to know about laser hair removal:

We get a lot of questions regarding hair removal with laser. This is what you need to know.

Who can have it?

The treatment is suitable for most people, but its effectiveness and safety can be influenced by several factors.

  • Skin type and hair colour
    Laser hair removal is effective across all skin types and hair colours. However, the best results are typically seen on dark hair on light skin.
  • Health conditions
    Certain health conditions and medications can affect the suitability. Make sure to disclose your medical history during consultation.
  • Pregnancy
    As a precaution, hair removal using a laser is not recommended for pregnant women, due to a lack of research on its effects on pregnancy.

How effective is it?

Typically, clients can expect a 70% to 90% reduction in hair after completing the recommended number of sessions. The effectiveness of the procedure depends on several factors, including hair colour, skin type and the treatment area. Note that, while laser hair removal can drastically reduce the quantity and thickness of hair, touch-up sessions may be required to maintain completely hair-free skin, due to the natural hair growth cycle.

How many treatments are required?

On average, clients usually undergo 6 to 8 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for the face, and 4 to 8 weeks apart for the body. This spacing allows the treatment to target hair at different growth stages for optimal reduction. Following the initial series of treatments, some individuals might need occasional maintenance sessions to target any residual hair.

Is it safe?

Yes, laser removal of hair is considered a safe procedure when performed by a certified and experienced practitioner.

Does it hurt?

Generally, the treatment is not described as painful, although discomfort levels can vary based on individual pain tolerance. Clients often compare the sensation to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Modern laser systems include cooling mechanisms to minimise discomfort and protect the skin's surface, making the procedure more comfortable than ever. Additionally, topical numbing creams can be applied to the treatment area to reduce sensation.

What happens to the hair after removal?

After a session, the treated hair will not fall out immediately but will shed over the following days to weeks. This shedding process is a normal part of the treatment, as the laser targets the hair's root, causing it to detach from the follicle. Post-treatment, it may appear as if the hair is growing, but these hairs are actually being pushed out by the body. For best results, you should resist the urge to pluck or wax these hairs. After completing the recommended number of treatments, the hair in the treated area will be significantly reduced, both in density and thickness
