How does light-assisted hair removal work?
Light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.
Am I suitable for treatment?
Most people are suitable for treatment. Best results are often achieved with clients who have fair skin and dark hair. Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Fair hair, however, contains less melanin and is harder to treat. We recommend a consultation to ascertain if the treatment will be successful for you. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment.
How does the treatment feel?
Treatment sensation varies but is often described as ‘a flick of an elastic band’. Typically no anaesthesia is required and most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable.
What will I see after the treatment?
The hair follicles are damaged by heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after one to three weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.
How long does each treatment take?
Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area.
Are there any side effects?
The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Unwanted reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
How many treatments are necessary?
Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every four to eight weeks, depending on the area treated, until a satisfactory result is seen. The required number of treatments varies, but typically six or more treatments are needed for optimum results.
