OVERVIEW: Scientific studies in the early 1990s proved that lasers were an effective method of removing unwanted hair and achieving “Permanent hair reduction“. During the treatment a cooling device will keep the area cool whilst a small hand piece will be held just over your skin. The type of laser determines the degree of discomfort and at Sholema we use a Laser that is virtually painless even when used in the most sensitive areas. For best results, treatments can be repeated at monthly intervals for a period of 6 months at least. The cost of Laser hair removal depends on the area of the body you wish to treat.
HOW LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS
THE PROCEDURE: During your consultation, the area you wish to treat will be discussed with the aesthetician and your expectations will be set out. The aesthetician will then assess what is achievable and a treatment plan will be devised for you. Your medical history will be taken to establish if there are underlying medical conditions or reasons why you shouldn’t have the treatment. At this time, you would also normally be asked to read detailed information and sign a consent form which means that you have understood the potential benefits and risks associated with this treatment. If you consent, photographs may also be taken by the practitioner for a “before and after” comparison at a later date.
During this treatment, safety eyewear must be worn to protect your eyes from the light generated by the machine. The practitioner will use a small hand piece held close to your skin with flashes of light to treat the area. At Sholema, we also use a cooling device during the treatment to ensure maximum comfort. Most patients describe the procedure as virtually painless, with a slight tingling or stinging sensation during treatment.
Several treatments are required at the start of hair removal therapy because of the natural growth cycle of hair. This is because each hair follicle goes through growing and resting phases, and the hair follicle is most successfully treated by light early in the growing phase. The number of active follicles and the length of the growth phase vary and the first treatment will only damage some of the follicles. After a few weeks, previously resting hair follicles break into growth, which then need to be treated.
A minimum of 6 sessions are recommended for best results, single treatment sessions are available to maintain results. 10% discount if treating more than one area during a single appointment.
