FAQs

1 ⇒ Will Laser hair removal hurt?

A ⇒ Our machine uses a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) which sprays the skin with a cooling burst of Cryogen milliseconds before the Laser pulse. DCD helps ensure maximum comfort during treatment.

2 ⇒ What sort of gap do I need between Laser hair removal treatments?

A ⇒ For facial treatments, a gap of 4 weeks is usually recommended between treatments. For body treatments, a gap of 4 to 6 weeks is recommended. This helps to catch the hair during the active stage of hair growth.

3 ⇒ How does the Laser hair removal work?

A ⇒ By sending a beam of Laser light to a group of hair follicles, the Laser technology causes selective heating to destroy the root while at the same time being safe for surrounding tissues.

4 ⇒ Is Laser hair removal safe, and are there any side effects?

A ⇒ Laser based treatments have been safely used for many years for a variety of cosmetic procedures with minimal side effects. Your skin may be slightly red immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts for a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.

5 ⇒ What precautions should I take throughout the process?

A ⇒ You should avoid sun exposure for at least 2 weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax for 4-6 weeks before and after treatment. Wait for tanned skin to fade before treatment. Use of sunscreen is recommended after treatment in order to protect your skin post treatment. Also avoid using perfumes and deodorants on the treatment areas and avoid hot showers for 24 – 48 hours post treatment.

6 ⇒ What preparation do I need before Laser hair removal?

A ⇒ You need to shave the area to be treated 24 hours before your treatment session.

7 ⇒ How long do Laser hair removal treatments take, and how many treatments will I require?

A ⇒ Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment, and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair density, colour and type, body area and skin tone.

8 ⇒ Are results permanent?

A ⇒ Laser hair removal is designed to provide long term results. After 6 treatments you can see significant reduction in hair growth (70-90%). The hair that does grow back may be much finer and lighter than before treatment.

9 ⇒ Is Laser hair removal suitable for all skin types?

A ⇒ At our Laser Clinic, we use one of the most advanced Laser machines available on the market. This is suitable for skin types I – VI, and is suitable for lighter and darker skin types. We can check the suitability for your individual skin type by performing a patch test in the Clinic.

10 ⇒ What is BioSurface™ Peel and when can it be used ?

11 ⇒ What is IonActiveTM  Treatment and when can it be used ?
