The treatment is only effective on the growing hairs, this is because they are currently attached to the follicle. The majority of the hair will be in the resting stage (not attached to the follicle yet still in the skin), this is why a number of treatments are needed over a 4 - 8 week basis. This is to ensure we capture all hairs within the growth stage in the desired area to deliver results you will be completely satisfied with.
We recommend around 8-10 sessions to permanently reduce the hair, however please note this may differ due to hormones. A top up session may also be needed.
AW3 Diode Laser
808nm Diode Laser
We have the AW3 Diode laser which uses the latest crystal freeze technology.
Laser hair removal is a fast, pain free method of removing unwanted and ingrown hairs long term, leaving your skin silky smooth and is ideal for both women and men of all skin types. This laser is best for dark and thicker hair.
This Laser Treatment is recommended in course of 8- 15 sessions, baring in mind everyone is different with response so please be advised top ups could be required. Patch Test is also Required.
How many sessions will I need?
We recommend that most people will need an average of 8- 10 sessions every 4-6 weeks (area depending) to kill the hair follicles beneath the skin and prevent future growth. Some people will require more sessions if any future hormonal changes result in new growth. Yearly top ups may also be required to keep any stray hairs at bay.
The laser can only treat hairs that are in the growing phase or visible on the skin surface, as a result multiple treatments are required to treat all hair in the skin. With the high power and skin cooling of our laser’s most people only require 8 sessions compared with other IPL or lasers that require 18 or in some cases more. As a result not only are our individual treatments prices lower but you will save more overall due to the superior results of our machines.
Does the laser work on darker skin types?
Yes our lasers will work safely on all skin Types. We will always personalise settings in your treatment plan for the best possible results.
How does the treatment work?
Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to remove unwanted hair. During the treatment, the laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair so the darker the hair the more effective the results. The light energy is then converted to heat, which in turn destroys the hair follicle & this damage then permanently reduces any future hair growth.
The procedure itself is carried out safely using protective eyewear & the laser head is simply places on to the skin with a layer of gel on the treatment area. The applicator is pressed with a slight pressure to ensure the pulse of light is released directly on to the skin & then moved across the area until treated.
An aftercare advice is given following your first session & is reiterated after every treatment to ensure you understand & support the best results from your Laser Hair Removal.
