WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Dr Grace Kelly Aesthetic Skin Clinic in Chalfont St Peter uses the Lumenis laser hair removal device, Lumenis stellar M22, which can treat many different skin types and hair colours as it’s able to adapt its wavelengths accordingly. The laser hair removal procedure appeals to men and women of all ages, giving a professional finish that eradicates the need for time-consuming, short-term hair removal methods that are used at home.
HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
Laser hair removal delivers a powerful beam of light directly to each individual follicle. The melanin (pigment) in the hair absorbs the light which turns to heat, working to destroy the hair at the root, as well as damaging the follicle. After a few weeks the hair will naturally fall out, and the damaged follicle will be less likely to produce a new hair. Laser hair removal will need to be carried out in a series of sessions at our Buckinghamshire clinic to ensure all the follicles have been targeted. At Dr Grace Kelly in Chalfont St Peter we tactically perform these sessions in-line with the natural growth cycle of the hair to ensure the follicles are damaged at the just the right point in time.
ARE THE RESULTS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?
Most of our Buckinghamshire patients require 2 – 6 treatments to remove all hair, with a 10 – 25% reduction in hair experienced after the first laser hair removal treatment. Smoother, hair free skin is often achieved when the course of hair removal treatments has come to an end, and many patients find they don’t need to return for treatment for many years. 90% of patients find the hair loss is permanent, and for those who do find their hair does start to regrow, the likelihood is that there will be less of it.
Laser hair removal at our Chalfont St Peter clinic is popular with both men and women, treating a range of areas, including: under arms, bikini line, legs, back, chest and face.
