Laser hair removal (LHR), or as some refer to it is “a miracle”, is a medical procedure that uses a laser (intense, pulsating beam of light) to remove unwanted hair. The process consists of a laser beam passing through the skin to individual hair follicles, damaging the hair follicle and inhibiting future hair growth, with its intense heat. When initially introduced, laser hair removal was most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair. Now, with ever-evolving technology, certain lasers are being manufactured to use on all skin types and colors.
The FAQs on LHR
- How many treatments are usually necessary?
The number and frequency of treatments required varies for each individual. Factors such as the location and color of the unwanted hair, hormonal influences, and even some medications can all have an effect on your LHR treatment. During a complimentary comprehensive consultation, we would go over all factors regarding LHR and you.
- Is Laser Hair Removal safe?
Laser hair removal is a very safe procedure, when attended to by adequately trained medical staff, produces long term results. All of our thoroughly trained technicians have been certified and continue with ongoing education to ensure their knowledge and your safety. In every facet of our business, we are dedicated to producing intelligent results – We have seen many unfortunate problems occur over the years with poorly trained staff at many of these franchise and chain hair removal clinics. The cheapest is not always a safe option!
- Is Laser Hair Removal permanent?
It is simply not possible to guarantee permanent hair removal. Permanent hair reduction, however, is possible. Unfortunately, dormant hair follicles may become active later in life and respond to hormonal influences, medications and other possible causes.
- Can all types of hair be treated?
All hair types can be treated with the Ellman or M22 lasers we employ, but technology has yet to prove effective on blonde, red and grey hair. The laser targets the pigment (color) located in the hair follicle which is why clients with darker hair generally achieve the best results from LHR.
- How much does Laser Hair Removal cost?
Here at skiin Anti-Aging Lounge, cost varies between each individual according to the density of unwanted hair and also the size of the area you are having treated. Subsequent treatment times will reduce and in turn, cost you less. Our comprehensive consultations are always complimentary.
