LASER HAIR TREATMENT FAQ’s
Unwanted body or facial hair is removed by a Laser Hair removal process. Treating hair by hair through electrolysis treatments is slow and time consuming and may be uncomfortable to the customer. However our Laser Hair treatment covers a larger area of hair removal within a shorter time period, giving our customers better results. Large areas such as arms, back, legs and chest for male & female and female bikini lines are more effective and efficient.
How does it work?
Laser is an intense beam of light energy, which at different wavelengths, safely removes unwanted hair.
The laser energy is converted into heat, safely destroying the hair follicle and leaving the surrounding skin and delicate pores unaffected. The laser beam cannot penetrate past the dermis (second layer of skin).
After each treatment, hair will grow back lighter and finer leaving the skin smooth and hair free for up to 6 weeks.
Is the treatment painful?
Many of our customers ask us this question. During the laser treatment we use the latest technology Zimmer cooling system which minimises pain and thermal injury during laser. A typical anesthetic cream may be an option in some cases when customers have sensitive areas.
How long does the treatment take?
Normally a treatment can take from 5 minutes to an hour depending on the areas being treated and we will advise you about this at the time of the treatment or over the phone.
How many treatments will I need?
Again this depends on the areas being treated and your age and hormones can also contribute to the amount of treatments required. At Forever Beautiful Skincare Clinic we will provide you with the best advice based on these factors. Customers have shown permanent hair loss of up to 85-90% after 6-8 treatments.
Am I a suitable candidate for laser hair removal?
Most people are able to have laser hair removal, however unsuitable candidates include women who are currently pregnant, patients prone to skin discolouration, patients who want grey, white, or very fine hairs removed. Patients who have recently taken Roaccutane for acne need to wait at least 6 months after finishing their course of treatment to commence laser hair removal.
What do I need to do before treatment?
As a general rule hair should not be plucked or waxed 3 weeks before our laser treatment and it is advisable to shave the area prior to your treatment. If you have a history of cold sores and you are planning to have your upper lip hairs removed, you will need to inform us so that you can be put on appropriate anti-viral therapy beforehand.
