What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly performed skin procedures in the world. If you're tired of shaving, tweezing or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal is an option worth considering.
This hair reduction treatment works by delivering highly concentrated beams of light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles which damages this structure resulting in a permanent reduction in hair growth. With a course of treatment clients can experience up to 90% reduction in hair growth resulting in slower, softer, finer and less dense hair growth.

Following a laser hair removal treatment
The skin may be red immediately after the treatment, and the hair follicles where the skin has been treated may be raised and bumpy, this usually subsides within a few hours but can take up to 48 hours for some clients. A very few people experience itching a few days later as the hair is pushed out.
Following a laser hair removal treatment, the hair growth slows considerably. It usually takes 2-3 weeks at which point the dead hair will fall out. New hair follicles will then grow, which are usually less coarse. After the second laser treatment, depending on skin and hair type, the area can already begin to look patchy as certain hair follicles stop producing new hairs. After 4-6 treatments, the hair should be significantly reduced, and after 8 sessions, we can achieve up to 90% reduction.
