Why should I consider laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a simple, safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted hair. Here are six reasons you should look into laser hair removal treatment:
- Is suitable for most areas of the face and body including the legs, underarms, bikini line, neck and back
- Works well on both men and women
- Directly targets hair follicles to destroy them and prevent further regrowth
- Our laser hair removal technology can treat many different skin types and hair colours
- Offers a long-term solution for hair-free skin
- Each treatment session takes no longer than 60 minutes
How does laser hair removal treatment work in Rickmansworth?
Laser hair removal or IPL hair removal works by sending a powerful beam of light directly into the hair follicles. The pigment within the hair follicle absorbs the light, which turns it into heat. This is what destroys the hair follicle and prevents any further hair growth from that follicle.
While the old hair follicle is destroyed you can still see growth from new hair follicles in the treatment area. however, any new hairs will be finer, lighter and less dense than before.
You will need more than one laser hair removal treatment session. This is because we need to ensure that the laser targets and destroys every hair follicle. It is also because every person’s skin and hair type will respond to treatment differently.
At your consultation, the practitioner will assess your skin and hair type. From this, your practitioner will develop a tailored treatment plan that will help you achieve hair-free results.
Am I suitable for laser hair removal?
Not every laser hair removal treatment is able to treat most hair types and skin types. At the Dr Grace Kelly Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we use the Lumenis Stellar M22 laser hair removal device. This can treat most skin types and hair colours.
As part of your first appointment, we will do a patch test on your skin and hair. This will ensure that you are suitable for laser treatment.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Laser hair removal is much more comfortable and less time-consuming than shaving or waxing. During your treatment, you will feel a warmness on your skin and a slight pin prick as the laser passes over your skin. This feels like an elastic band hitting the skin and is only momentary.
How long will it take to see the results of laser hair removal?
You may start to see the shedding of your hair a few weeks after your first treatment. At this time, you may notice that the hair is thinning or only growing in patches.
As you go through your course of treatment, you will start to have hair falling from new areas. We repeat this process until the laser destroys all the active hair follicles.
After the full course of laser hair removal treatment, 90% of our patients achieve permanent hair-free skin in the treatment area. Some people may choose to have top-up sessions in the future if small patches of hair appear.
Are there any side effects from laser hair removal treatment?
The most common side effect of laser hair removal is redness and a slight swelling in the treatment area. This looks like a slight sunburn and will go down in a few hours.
If your skin is feeling sensitive after treatment, we may recommend that you apply some aloe vera gel or post-treatment balm to your skin. This will help soothe the area. Your practitioner will give you a full list of aftercare instructions and advice on how to support your skin.
There is minimal downtime with laser hair removal. In fact, most patients go back to work straight away.
