Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

  • Fast
    It is very quick procedure with some sessions taking as little as 20 minutes. The time that will take is largely dependant on the area size that is being targeted. For example, it will take far longer to remove hair from an area such as your back than it will to remove hair from the upper lip or your brows.
  • Cost Effective
    Once you start undergoing for laser hair removal sessions you wont have to worry about spending money on products such as depilatory creams, razors, costly wax treatments or any other method you used to remove your hair before. The cost will be more upfront but when you compare having no hair for many months or even years at a time you can save significant amount of money when you are not paying for regular procedures.
  • No more ingrown hairs
    Lots of us suffer from ingrown hairs, usually as a result of waxing or shaving. They can appear like little red bumps on the skin and can be itchy and sore. Sometimes they can become infected and need treated with antibiotics. They can leave people feeling insecure about revealing their skin. Laser Hair Removal kills the follicle stopping new hairs growing and therefore preventing ingrown hairs.
  • Improved Skin
    Shaving and waxing can irritate the skin and a common complaint can is dry skin and rashes. Skin can be slightly red immediately after treatments, this tends to settle in a few hours. In the long term, the skin should be silky smooth and no longer having to repeatedly remove hair will prevent ongoing irritation.

How does laser HAIR removal work?

Laser hair removal works by using a concentrated beam of light to aim at unwanted hair. During treatments the laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair itself, the energy from the light is then converted to heat which eventually leads to the hair follicle being destroyed or damaged which prevents any future hair growth.

Is laser Hair removal Permanent?

Laser hair removal destroys actively growing hair follicles, so for some clients we are able to say that the end result is permanent hair removal. However, as with all depilation methods, The Laser Place cannot give any guarantee as the laser will only affect actively growing follicles and has no effect on dormant or resting hair follicles. After your laser hair removal treatment it is possible that new hair growth may take place from hair follicles that weren’t growing at the time of the treatment.

How many sessions are required?

Normally between 6-8 sessions are required however each individual is unique. The exact number will depend on the area treated and the structure of your hair.

is laser hair removal painful?

Most patients will experience slight discomfort however our machine has built in cooling technology to make it a more pleasant experience. The degree of discomfort varies from person to person depending on their pain threshold.

can anyone have laser hair removal?

Yes! Laser hair removal works equally for both male and females. Our machine at the laser place treats all skin tones and all areas.

Pre-Care

Prior to your Laser Hair Removal treatment it is recommended that you follow the instructions below:

  • If you have a tan you should wait at least 4 weeks after your last UV exposure until there is no activity in the pigment cells.
  • You should stop any other hair removal such as; waxing, plucking or threading at least 4 weeks prior to your laser hair removal treatment.
  • Shave the area at least 24 hours prior to the treatment.
  • You should avoid perfumes, deodorants or any other potential irritants in the treatment area 48 hours before and 7 days after the treatment.
  • You should avoid alcohol, aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen for 48 hours before treatment; This will reduce the risk of a skin reaction.
  • If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex), then we advise you to apply a topical treatment such as Zovirax, which can be purchased from any Chemist. Please apply for 7 days before and 7 days after treatment, as this can help minimise an outbreak.
  • Laser Hair Removal procedures do not cause cold sores, however, if you carry the virus in your body, which lies dormant in your body, this can be stimulated by the procedure.
