How Laser Hair Removal works

Laser Hair Removal treatment works by emitting a light that is absorbed by the melanin (color) in your hair follicle. The light generates heat that travels down to the follicle under the skin, inhibiting the hair’s ability to grow. This inactive hair follicle falls out, leaving your skin silky smooth. For maximum results, we recommend a course of 8-12 laser hair removal treatments.

Frequently asked questions.

We use the medical grade Cynosure Elite which is the most advanced technology to achieve the most advanced results. Our advanced cooling machines used in all laser treatments cools your skin before, during and post treatment to minimise any discomfort.

Before your appointment, we ask that you

  • Shave the area between 12-24 hours before your treatment
  • Avoid chemical peels or laser resurfacing
  • Exfoliate to remove any dead skin build up
  • Ensure no residue fake tan is present on the skin
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure on area being treated two weeks prior (including solariums or tanning drugs)
  • Avoid using topical creams/moisturisers, perfumes to the area being treated before appointment
  • Do not wax or pluck hairs four weeks prior to laser treatment

Yes, our Gold Standard YAG medical grade lasers offer safe and effective hair reduction for clients with darker skin types.

Using our medical grade equipment, our fully trained laser technicians can target any hair color, with the exception of grey, pale red, white and white blonde.

Some medications may have blood thinning or photo-sensitising properties which can increase the risk of an adverse reaction, so it is important to bring along a comprehensive list of any medications or supplements you are on to discuss with your technician prior to treatment.

At Shira Laser we recommend Laser Hair treatments for clients over the age of 18 years old. This is due to the fact that hair growth has not fully developed due to changing hormonal levels. If you are under 18 years old please speak with your parent or guardian about laser hair treatments prior to contacting Shira Laser  as they will be required to attend your consultation and sign a consent.

No lasers can claim to have achieved 100% permanent hair removal. However, FDA Approved Medical Grade 4 Lasers can, in most cases, achieve permanent hair “reduction” with approximately a 70% – 90% reduction in hair growth, These results are dependent on the individual and can be influenced by such things as skin type, hair color, and hormones.

The amount of treatments required will vary from person to person. For the best results, we typically recommend 6 to 12 treatments spaced 4 to 6 week apart depending on the area, this will ensure that all hairs are effectively interrupted and immobilised during the active growth phase of the growth cycle.

Although Laser Hair Removal can be uncomfortable, most clients tolerate it well. Many people describe it as an elastic band flicking on your skin. We also use cooling throughout to reduce discomfort. If you have a low pain threshold topical anaesthetic can be applied prior to treatment.

Laser can decrease the chance of experiencing ingrown hairs. When there is no hair in the follicle, there is less chance of an ingrown hair occurring.

There are no conclusive studies on laser being safe or unsafe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. If you have any concerns about proceeding with Laser Hair Removal please consult your doctor.

The larger the area, the longer it will take to complete the treatment.

15 to 20 minutes for a thorough Brazilian/Underarm treatment and about 45 to 60 minutes for major areas such as Full Legs.
