  1. What happens during a hair removal session?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive medical procedure to permanently reduce hair growth. During the hair removal session, a laser beam is passed through the skin to individual hair follicles.

The intense heat of the laser targets and damages the follicles, inhibiting any future hair growth in the treatment area.

  1. Can all hair be treated?

At our skin care clinic, we can use the Cynosure laser hair removal system for many areas of the body including:

  • Face (upper lip, chin, cheeks)
  • Bikini
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Beard

  1. Am I a suitable candidate for laser hair removal?

We offer laser hair removal for men and women of many different skin types. If you want to get rid of any hair, you are a good candidate for permanent hair removal.

Contact our clinic to book a consultation and our skin care specialists can help determine whether laser hair removal is the right choice for you.

  1. Is it painful?

Cynosure is an advanced laser system and is virtually painless. In fact, it is a much more pleasant experience than waxing, tweezing or electrolysis, which are very damaging to the skin.

While every patient has a different level of tolerance to pain, our skin specialists will do everything they can to ensure you are kept comfortable throughout your hair removal treatment.

  1. What do I need to do to prepare for laser hair removal?

The first step in a laser hair removal treatment is to do a patch test. This is to ensure that your skin is suitable for the laser and to tailor the machine’s settings to your personal requirements.

If you have been bleaching your hair, you will need to allow the normal color to grow before proceeding with laser. Additionally, you should shave the night before your hair removal treatment and avoid using deodorants or other skin products on the day of your session.

  1. How many hair removal sessions will I need?

It will take approximately 6-8 treatments to get the optimum benefit from your laser hair removal procedure. Facial laser hair treatments can be done every 4 weeks and body treatments are performed every 6 weeks.

  1. Are there any side effects?

When performed by a skilled and trained therapist, laser hair removal will not damage your skin. Any side effects such as redness or swelling are minimal and will only last a few hours, depending on your skin type.

  1. When will I see the results of my treatment?

After your hair removal treatment, some hairs will fall out immediately while others may take up to 14 days to shed. You will be able to enjoy smooth, hair-free skin between your appointments and the re-growth will possibly be lighter, finer and more scattered.

  1. What is the aftercare involved?

For a few days after the laser hair removal treatment, avoid heat stimulation such as hot baths or showers and saunas or steam. For the duration of your treatments, remember to wear SPF 30 to protect your skin from sun exposure.

Our team is always available to provide continuing advice and support even after your final session is complete.
