How it Works

Laser hair removal is a process where a soft beam of light is directed onto your skin, which is then absorbed by the pigment in your hair. This light is converted into heat, disabling the stem cells that line the hair follicle and causing the hair to eventually fall out. With each treatment, the follicle becomes increasingly damaged, making it unable to produce new hair. leaving your skin silky smooth.

Minor side effects after laser treatments are normal. You may feel a slight itchiness and see redness or raised bumps on your skin, but these usually go away within 1 to 2 days. In rare cases, the redness may last a bit longer. However, you can go back to your normal activities right away. We will help you get ready for the treatment and provide the necessary aftercare.

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.

Before coming in for your appointment, we kindly request that you arrive with freshly cleansed skin, free from any lotions, creams, oils, or fragrances. It is important to shave the treatment area thoroughly before your appointment, at least 24 hours in advance, to prevent any irritation. Please refrain from waxing, tweezing, or epilating for 4 weeks before and between treatments.

Additionally, it is crucial to avoid sun exposure to the treatment area for 2-4 weeks leading up to your appointment. Refrain from getting spray tans one week prior and make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunblock with SPF 30+ on a daily basis. Two weeks before your treatment, steer clear of topical products that may cause sensitivity, such as hydroxy acids, salicylic acid, retinoids, and benzoyl peroxide. However, gentle cleansers and lotions are perfectly fine to use.

Lastly, please avoid activities that may increase your body temperature, such as hot tubs, saunas, or spa treatments, within 24 hours before your appointment.

The treatment is quite speedy and painless. Your technician will make sure that the area is suitable for treatment on the day. You might experience a little warmth and a flicking/pinching sensation, but it stops as soon as the pulse is done. Just to give you an idea, treating the underarm area only takes about 5 minutes!

We also have a Zimmer machine that simultaneously delivers cold air to the area while it’s being lasered, which helps with any discomfort. It’s also a great way to distract yourself!

After the area has been lasered, we’ll apply Aloe vera and you’re good to go! It’s normal to have some redness and swelling around the hair follicles after the treatment, so it’s important to keep the area as cool as possible for at least 24 hours. This means avoiding excessive exercise, hot baths, tight clothing, sun exposure, and regularly applying Aloe vera will be your savior!

It is typical to experience redness and swelling after treatment, and the treated area may feel similar to razor burn for a few hours. If you feel irritated, you can try using over-the-counter hydrocortisone or aloe vera to soothe the redness. It is normal to notice hair shedding in the treated area over the next two weeks, and patchiness in hair growth is also expected.

To protect your skin, avoid direct sun exposure on the treated area for at least 2 weeks. After this period, always remember to wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. Additionally, it is important to avoid excessive heat, such as saunas, working out, or hot tubs, for at least 24 hours after treatment.

For the best results, we recommend scheduling follow-up treatments every 6 weeks, including trunk areas in the schedule.
