What is Laser Hair Removal?
Everything you need to know.
Laser hair removal is a safe, non-invasive treatment that permanently removes unwanted body hair. Lasers are designed to specifically target the hair roots and destroy them meaning a new hair cannot regrow in its place. In a nutshell the laser light will target the hairs colour pigment, travel down the hair shaft into the root, heating the root until it is destroyed.
Using a medical grade laser like the SMARTDIODE means we can treat all skin tones as our machine has been specifically designed to treat both light and dark skin tones, you will find most lasers on the market can only treat lighter skin tones. Laser hair removal has zero downtime so you can carry on with your day as normal.
Does it hurt?
Laser hair removal with us should not be painful on most areas of the body you won't feel anything, but on others like the i.e. bikini area, fingers, top lip it maybe a little more uncomfortable, it is described as either a prickly sensation or a hot elastic band flicking against the skin.
Is it suitable for me?
Laser hair removal isn't for everyone, for example people with blonde, red or grey hair are not suitable for laser hair removal as they do not have a dark enough pigment in their hair for the laser to target, so it will be ineffective. Our area of expertise is working with clients who may suffer with certain conditions or hormonal shifts that cause excessive hair growth in unwanted places such as PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), Hirsutism, Menopause, Pregnancy and people that are going through Gender Reassignment. SkinFix offers free, confidential consultations to establish if laser hair removal is for you, with our expert advice and treatment plans we will always strive to achieve optimum results. In rare cases laser hair removal may not work or give you the results you desired due to slight hormonal imbalances through to the intensity at which the laser is set during your treatment (we always start high as this gives us quicker results!)
How many sessions will I need?
This is variable from client to client but on average we recommend at least 6 - 12 sessions to achieve your desired results. This will be discussed at your consultation as well as monitored by your therapist after every treatment as it could mean you require less or maybe more.
Can I use sunbeds or sunbathe whilst under going laser hair removal?
YES! With our SMARTDIODE laser you can sunbathe and use sunbeds in between your treatments as long as you follow your Therapists guidelines and advice prior to actively tanning, this will allow you to safely tan and have laser hair removal with us.
Important Treatment Information.
Before you come to your treatments you need to shave the area to be treated at least 24hrs prior as this will reduce any skin irritation and allow us to achieve the best results. It is also advised to have clean, moisturiser free skin and wear loose fitting clothing. It is so important not to use any fake tanning products at least 4 weeks prior to treatment as we will not be able to treat you. You will need to use 100% Aloe Vera gel for at least 48hrs post treatment as this will soothe the treated area and keep the skin moist. SkinFix will always recommend using sun cream on your skin daily, a minimum SPF 30+
