Both men and women are suitable for this treatment and a chat with our friendly and helpful team will show just how you can benefit from laser hair removal.
Laser Hair Removal – how does it work?
When having laser hair removal, our expert practitioners will aim to destroy the hair follicle without causing any damage to the skin and tissues around it. The follicle is heated and the temperature effectively kills the follicle. It is normal to have concerns about this type of treatment and we are happy to answer any questions that you have. We will also carry out a patch test to be sure that the skin will not have an adverse reaction to the laser hair removal treatment, giving you additional peace of mind.
We cannot say for certain how long each laser hair removal treatment will take and how many treatments you need. All our clients have different requirements, but our team can assess you and offer guidance. For small areas the hair removal treatment could be as short as 15 minutes.
While this is a relatively painless treatment you may experience some discomfort, although you can rest assured we will do everything we can to keep you comfortable. Our professional team are all fully trained and highly experienced, so you will be in safe hands from start to finish.
It should be noted that those who have lighter hair such as blonde or ginger will not be suitable for laser hair removal. We are also unable to treat skin type 4 or above. It is designed to work on darker hair only and this is because the treatment targets the pigments and colours in the hair. The lower the amount of pigment, the less effective the treatment will be and the risk of burning the surrounding skin becomes heightened. However, this is not something you should worry about as we will make you aware of any issues like this when you come in for your initial laser hair removal consultation with us.
Laser Hair Removal in Aylesbury – what about aftercare?
Aftercare is very important following laser hair removal as we want you to see the best results possible. Following laser hair removal we will explain to you how best to care for your skin. You may notice some initial redness but this will subside fairly quickly. One of our top tips is to apply Aloe Vera to the treated area to keep it cool and we will do this for you while you are with us, although you can do this yourself at home too.
During your initial consultation for hair removal, your qualified practitioner will also advise you on the potential risks. These may include burning of the skin and both hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation. This sounds a little scary but please be reassured that the risks are minimal – we just need to make you aware of them.
The number of hair removal treatments that you will need will vary according to your hair type and the area being treated. It is not uncommon for hair to re-grow even if the follicle has been destroyed as hair growth is also affected by hormonal activity. A course of hair removal treatments will be required. Laser hair removal is a long-term solution for one of life’s annoying little problems, so let us help you to deal with it.
