Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated beams of light (lasers) to remove unwanted hair from various parts of the body.
The laser emits a highly concentrated light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles. The intense heat from the laser damages the hair follicles, destroying their ability to regrow hair.
As a result, hair growth is slowed significantly and the effects last much longer than waxing or shaving.
Typical areas that people remove hair from are armpits, legs, and bikini areas. This isn’t an exhaustive list however and laser hair removal can be performed almost anywhere.
My diode laser hair removal treatment works on almost all skin types (apart from those listed below).
Laser hair removal can not be given to people if they are:
The treatment site may feel a little tender for a few hours following treatment.
You may also experience some redness and swelling.
It usually takes 2-3 days for the treated areas to settle.
Your hair removal will be noticeable straight away and should last for several months. This can vary depending on the patient.
Benefits of laser hair removal are that it removes the need to shave or wax going forward and stops the growth of hair where it isn’t wanted.
It is recommended that each patient sits for 6-8 laser hair removal sessions for maximum effect. There should be 4-6 weeks between each session.
