Laser hair removal treatments offer the latest in effective hair removal technology and have become one of the most popular methods for long lasting hair removal. Suitable for men and women and currently one of the most performed procedures in the beauty industry.

Laser hair removal results vary depending on skin type and colour.

Let’s have a look at the technical details:

During Laser hair removal treatments, the Laser emits light via a handpiece at a wavelength of 808 nanometres producing an intense pulsating beam of light which removes unwanted hair. During the procedure, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The melanin absorbs the Laser light and it converts it to intense heat. The heat damages the hair without damaging the skin slowing down future hair growth. Laser hair removal is suitable for men and women who are looking for long lasting treatment options for unwanted hair. Laser hair removal results last from several months to years, as the results differ from person to person.

After the treatment, it commonly takes a couple of weeks before the treated hair starts to fall out. Multiple treatments are required but the effectiveness and results can be seen after the initial session.

Laser hair removal is a very effective option to slow down hair growth but doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal 100% as it does depend on your skin type and the growth stages of your hair.

For best results, multiple laser treatments are required and in return offer a longer hair-free time period. It usually requires 6-8 sessions with a recommended break time in between treatments to achieve near permanent results which can be maintained with follow-up treatments every 6-12months.

Now you can enjoy the excess time you would normally spend on hair removal giving you only short-term results and you can enjoy silky, smooth skin 24/7. Don’t let the cost of laser hair removal put you off, being permanently hair free is well worth the life changing investment.
