What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal involves selective targeting of the hair follicles, leaving the skin untouched. It has been used since the 1990’s for this reason, and can help reduce unwanted hair that is usually removed by plucking, shaving or waxing, and make hair management an easier task.

How is laser hair removal performed?

The laser head is placed on the skin, and systematically fired over the areas to be treated. A small ‘prick’ is felt with each laser shot, and this discomfort is usually tolerated well. We may also use skin cooling to reduce the heat and discomfort of the laser on the skin, and this can be built into the laser head, or be a separate cooling unit that blows cold air onto the skin.

How many treatments will I need?

Generally, 4 to 8 sessions are required at 4 to 8 weekly intervals (depending on the area treated) in order to achieve a 60 to 80% reduction in hair growth.
