An option that is classed as a life saver due to its ease of access and flexibility can also seem too good to be true. Laser hair removal simply gets rid of any unwanted body and facial for diminished hair growth, but what is the exact process and where can you get laser treatment in Brighton? Here at Allison Jeffery, we unravel the mysteries and common questions below.
How is laser removal performed?
With the technology for laser treatments evolving and adapting to suit cosmetic purposes for years now and is now suitable for even using it on the face. Laser hair treatment works depleting the targeted areas multiple times with short bursts of concentrated light energy. This light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the active hair follicles, breaking them apart and disabling its ability to produce hair as quickly. After multiple treatments, some areas may stop producing hair altogether.
How permanent is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal can’t be put down as a completely permanent way to remove unwanted body and facial hair, but it does permanently reduce the growth of this hair. In some areas, the follicles may be damaged enough to permanently stop producing hair, though it’s more than likely to see a positive reduction instead. Most clients need a top up appointment a few months after their treatment journey has ended and this is completely natural to do so. Due to laser hair removal treatment taking up to 1-6 sessions on a weekly to monthly basis, it’s important to understand that at the beginning of your treatment journey it ensures a positive reduction in the treatment area.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Rest assured; laser hair removal is entirely safe. Here at Allison Jeffery Skin Health and Laser Clinic, we’re proud to have been awarded the Golden Winner Aesthetic Award in Laser Hair Removal ensuring you’ll be in safe hands during your treatment. You will feel a little discomfort while you’re being treated which has been compared to an elastic band being hit against your skin, but it should not be painful. You’ll be provided with the protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser light and your treatment should run smoothly. It’s important you wear broad spectrum sun protection because the treated area will be a little vulnerable and sensitive to the sun’s rays.
Laser hair removal side effects
Your treated area might be a little swollen and red over the days following your initial procedure with this being completely normal as its just your skin’s inflammatory response to an outside stimulus. Using soothers such as aloe Vera gel, a cold compress, ice pack or a towel doused with cold water with help soothe the irritation and calm your skin. Sun protection is vital, and you must avoid any unwanted pigmentation changes by sun damage to your temporarily vulnerable skin and apply sun protection whenever you are exposed to sun rays for over a week.
