Global warming means it’s unseasonably warmer in Spring than it once was. This means that you’re likely to be wearing shorter trousers and shirts earlier in the year, which is fine if you’re happy to put up with the daily bind of shaving your legs, but less fine if you need to fight everyone else in town for an early waxing appointment! With laser hair removal, you’ll never get caught out by a surprisingly hot day again.
This effective hair removal method will not only cause hair in the targeted area to fall out, but also after enough sessions it will reduce your hair regrowth by up to 80%. The different between shaving an area of skin that is 100% full of hair and an area of skin that is only 20% full of hair is immense! And that 80% will be gone forever because the hair loss is permanent.
How does laser hair removal work?
As effective as it is, laser hair removal does require a bit of planning. One session will not be enough, as the device can only target hairs that are in their active growing phase. The hair follicles that are producing hairs at the time of your appointment will be heated by our laser device to such a temperature that they will be permanently damaged and rendered incapable of growing any more hairs. However, hair follicles in a dormant stage of their cycle will be unaffected. This is why a time delay between sessions is essential.
The delay allows our practitioner to take more hair follicles out of action, as they enter the active phase. Having the treatment during the Winter means you’ll have smooth hair-free skin in the Spring, when it warms up, and you want to reveal parts of your body that have been previously covered up.
What happens during the laser hair removal process?
You’ll visit us initially for a consultation. This will allow us to meet you and assess your suitability for this type of treatment. Some skin tones and hair types will achieve more effective results over others. Laser hair removal can be performed on large areas of the body, such as the back, the legs, the chest and the abdomen, but it can also be performed on small, fiddly precision areas of the face. In order for us to advise you on what’s possible as well as give you an idea of the time and cost involved, we’ll need to meet you and discuss your needs.
When you meet us for the appointment itself, you’ll lie in our comfortable, modern practice rooms, while we use the laser device to administer the treatment. The sensation has been compared to having elastic bands twanged at you. Your skin might feel hot and sore afterwards, but this sensation will soon fade, leaving you with smooth hair-free skin.
The treatment journey for laser hair removal is quite a long one, so why not give our reception team a call today to book your consultation. We’ll be able to arrange a time to have a no obligation chat with you about how laser hair removal can transform your life.
