Prior to treatment, our clients have a personal consultation to determine your hair removal plan. This might look different depending on your desired treatment area, as well as your hair’s pigment. For your personal best results, you might need 4 to 6 treatments, spaced around 6 weeks apart.
During treatment, the technician will apply a hand-held laser device to your skin. This laser beam will pass through your skin to the hair follicles. The heat from the laser beam damages these hair follicles, inhibiting hair growth. Some discomfort in the skin is possible, and you’ll likely feel a sensation of cold from the cooling device or gel. Depending on the area being treated – such as your upper lip or your back – treatment can last between a few minutes to several hours.
Laser Hair Removal is a long-used and safe technique, with minimal side effects. You may notice redness and swelling for the first few hours after treatment. You will be recommended to apply ice on treated areas. There is also hair shedding in the first few days and up to 2 weeks after treatment.
Sun protection before and after Laser Hair Removal is essential.
