No. We cannot guarantee permanent hair removal but in some cases this can happen. All patients are different and hair growth levels can vary. There is no permanent hair removal solution in the current market.
Some people find it can hurt and others do not feel a thing, it completely depends on the individual as to how they can handle pain levels and what area is being treated, as more sensitive areas are more prone to feeling a bit more painful than other areas. Just remember that the long term results will be worth it and pain from a laser beam lasts less than a second!
Laser hair removal uses a more concentrated and higher powered beam of light to disrupt the hairs growth cycle which is similar to the energy used for IPL treatments but laser treatments are far more effective as the light from the laser is far more concentrated it is far more precise and accurate at targeting the hair follicles than the light from an IPL machine where the light is far more disperse.
IPL is only suitable for fairer skin tones as it uses a variety of energy wave lengths which can affect surrounding skin where as lasers are adjusted to the wave length suited to your skin tone so that the beam targets only the hair follicle and does not affect the surrounding skin, so can be suitable for both fairer and darker skin tones. The light beam from an IPL system is not as deeply penetrating as the laser beam so can sometimes not penetrate the skin deep enough to target the hair follicle heating up only the skin and missing the hairs, where as laser penetrates deeper into the skin to target the hairs follicle with more effective and long lasting results reducing hair growth significantly by around 90% after around three to five laser sessions.
We welcome both male and female patients for treatments, but please be aware that all treatment procedures are carried out by a female expert in laser hair removal.
Some normal side effects that may occur after recieving laser hair removal treatment include pink or redness of the skin, swelling around the treatment area or follicles (follicular edema), but these side effects rarely last more than two or three days. In some rare and extreme cases side effects include acne, skin discolouration, hypo or hyper pigmentation or burning of the skin. Although this can be avoided easily as we will always conduct a patch test and we will never use lasers which are too strong for our patients skin to cause our patients to suffer with damage to their skin.
There is no evidence to suggest that Laser Hair Removal causes skin cancer.
This depends on how you are feeling at the time of having your treatment, and also depends on how many follicles are being targeted by the laser at that time, the fewer follicles being targeted the less you will feel the laser.
