How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser Hair Removal involves using an intense light beam to destroy each hair follicle. It does this by targeting the melanin (color) in the hair, breaking down the root and blood supply to the follicle. This causes the hair to thin out and become lighter, eventually helping to stop growth entirely, without affecting the skin around it.
During your Laser Hair Removal session, you will feel a hot, prickly sensation in the targeted area as the laser beam penetrates the hair follicles. However, there is a cooling function attached to the laser which blows cold air onto the area, helping to soothe any pain felt. After your treatment, there may be some temporary redness and small bumps, which can be treated with aloe vera gel. The dead hairs should fall out in 2-3 weeks following your treatment.
After your initial session, hair growth will be slower and thinner. After the second laser treatment, the area will usually already be hairless in places as some follicles cease to produce fresh hairs. After 4-8 treatments, you can achieve up to a 90% reduction in hair growth*. Laser Hair Removal can also be very effective in treating and preventing ingrown hairs.
*Results will vary, depending on skin and hair type.
