Discover all you need to know about laser hair removal below.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a revolutionary treatment that offers a lasting solution to unwanted body hair. This non-invasive treatment has gained huge popularity due to its effectiveness compared to traditional hair removal methods, such as waxing and shaving. By utilising concentrated beams of laser light, this advanced technique targets hair follicles to prevent hair growth.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal involves a specialised handheld device that emits laser energy and at Evolve Medical, we use the Cynasure Elite Laser.
The Elite Laser is a Class 4 medical laser suitable for all skin types. This laser treatment, we can achieve 70-100% hair reduction in any area.
This energy is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) in the hair follicles, converting it into heat. The generated heat damages the hair follicles, preventing future hair growth without causing harm to the surrounding skin.
As treated hairs fall out, patients can enjoy smoother, hair-free skin.
What Are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
There are many incredible benefits of laser hair removal. Some of these include:
- Long-lasting Results: Unlike temporary hair removal methods such as shaving or waxing, laser hair removal provides long-lasting results while reducing the risk of ingrown hairs. Many patients experience permanent hair reduction after completing a series of sessions.
- Time-saving: Laser hair removal is relatively quick, especially for smaller treatment areas like the upper lip or underarms. Since it can target multiple hair follicles simultaneously, it is significantly faster than traditional methods like waxing or plucking.
- Versatility: Laser hair removal can be performed on various body parts, including the face, arms, legs, and bikini area, making it a versatile solution for both men and women.
- Minimal Discomfort: While individual pain tolerance may vary, most people find laser hair removal relatively painless, especially compared to other hair removal methods like waxing.
- Cost-effective: Although laser hair removal may seem more expensive upfront, the long-term cost savings are significant when considering the ongoing expenses of other hair removal techniques over time.
During your pre-treatment consultation, one of our friendly, experienced practitioners will assess your unique needs and develop a tailored treatment plan to suit your specific requirements.
At this time, we recommend a patch test. This will help you to familiarise yourself with the sensation of the laser ahead of your treatment.
How Long Will It Take to See Results?
The timeframe for the results of laser hair removal can vary from person to person. While some individuals may notice a reduction in hair growth after the first session, most people require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results.
It’s important to remember that hair grows in cycles, and not all follicles are active simultaneously. As a result, several sessions are necessary to target hairs in different growth stages, leading to more comprehensive and long-lasting hair reduction.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Laser hair removal offers long-term results, with many patients experiencing permanent hair reduction. Although individual responses to the treatment can differ, laser hair removal has significantly longer-lasting results than traditional hair removal methods.
While some minimal regrowth may occur, it often consists of much finer hair. Occasional maintenance sessions may be required to manage new hair growth effectively.
How Many Sessions Are Recommended For Laser Hair Removal?
The number of laser hair removal sessions required depends on many factors, such as the treatment area, hair colour, skin type, and individual response to the procedure. Typically, patients undergo between 6 to 8 sessions, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve optimal outcomes.
Are There Any Before and Aftercare For Laser Hair Removal?
Before your laser hair removal treatment, avoiding sun exposure and tanning beds for a few weeks is essential to minimise the risk of complications.
Additionally, shaving the treatment area a day or two before the procedure is often recommended to enhance the laser’s efficiency in targeting hair follicles. Avoid waxing, tanning products and hair removal creams ahead of your appointment.
Following the treatment, you may experience mild redness or sensitivity, which should subside within a few hours. Our dedicated team will provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions to ensure the best results and minimise any potential side effects.
