WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
A laser is a concentrated beam of light energy that safely eliminates unwanted hair at various wavelengths. The laser is absorbed by melanin (the pigment that gives our hair and skin colour) and turned into heat, safely killing the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding skin and delicate pores untouched.
The Fitzpatrick Skin Type system, which categorises skin types 1-6, is used to classify skin types. 1 is the lightest colour, while 6 is the darkest. Laser is most effective on pale skin and black coarse hair. While this is the ‘perfect’ skin/hair combination, it does not rule out the possibility that laser hair removal will be effective on anyone else. Please come into our clinic here at Oo La La for a free analysis and we will let you know if it will work for you.
No sun exposure or artificial tan for at least two weeks before to treatments. Also, while receiving treatments, be sure you are not using any photosensitive medications.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?
While you may not feel the heat, you may get the sensation of your skin being snapped with a small rubber band. After the treatment, you may suffer mild pain, such as redness and irritation comparable to a mild sunburn. To some extent, the operation may be uncomfortable.
The skin is left smoother, and when the hair comes back, it is finer, resulting in fewer ingrown hairs. Furthermore, you avoid shaving cuts and razor burns.
You might expect some rapid benefits after one treatment, but it can take between 5 and 12 sessions for hair growth to truly slow down. We’ve seen many people return every six months for a laser treatment just to keep it maintained.
