How does laser hair removal work?
The laser is attracted to the dark pigment in hair called melanin. The energy from the laser travels down to the base of the hair follicle using melanin as a ‘conductor’ where it disperses as thermal energy. This damages the base of the hair follicle rendering it unable to produce hair as quickly. This rate of growth will decrease more as you have further treatments.
How many treatments does laser hair removal require?
Depending on the thickness of the hair and the area to be treated we recommend either a course of 6 or 8 treatments, after which top up courses are available.
Are there any side effects of laser hair removal?
Some normal side effects may occur after laser hair removal treatments, including itching, pink skin, redness and swelling around the treatment area or swelling of the follicles. These side effects rarely last more than two or three days.
