Laser Hair Removal
- Is the treatment permanent?
Many of us have experienced the frustration that comes with unwanted growth. Whilst we have solutions like waxing, plucking and shaving, they all have certain things in common: they’re messy, time-consuming and a major hassle. Most of all, these methods are purely temporary. Fortunately, laser treatment provides a permanent solution for a range of areas. We can provide fantastic results for facial, full body and Brazilian options, obtaining permanent reductions in growth.
This is achieved through a series of sessions that target specific areas of growth and eliminate the follicles. The general principle is that between four and eight treatment sessions* can eliminate 90% of growth permanently.
- Will all my hair be removed in one treatment?
Hair grows in cycles, so no laser can offer permanent hair removal in just one session. Our Medical Grade treatments are performed every 6 to 8 weeks for the body and every 4 to 6 weeks for the face. This can offer 90% permanent removal in just 6 to 8 treatments*. Please be aware that factors such as hormones, certain medications and genetics can cause long term growth, so while the hair may not permanently be removed, growth is greatly reduced and maintenance treatments may be required.
- Laser Hair Removal is safe?
Our experienced clinicians are paramedically trained skin therapists and registered nurses who have obtained a specialised safety certification. This ensures that we always provide a safe and customized experience based on treatment requirements. We also offer an extensive consultation process to assess suitability, reduce any risk, and provide the best pre, during, and post-operative course of action.
- Can it work for everyone?
It’s important to have a consultation prior to treatment to determine whether you’re suitable for treatment. While we provide treatments for men and women, different skin colours and different hair colours affect how the procedure works.
Darker hairs respond best to treatment due to a higher concentration of pigment (melanin) in the follicle. Reds, whites and greys cannot be removed with such treatment as they lack sufficient pigment for the laser to be attracted to – it requires sufficient pigment in order to be more effective.
- Can it be used on the face?
Yes. Facial laser treatment is a popular treatment that can be used to safely and effectively target unwanted facial growth for a more permanent solution. Common areas include the upper lip, chin, cheeks, hairline and between the eyebrows. We can also provide treatments for men’s facial hair, as well as unwanted growth on the ears and excessive nasal hair. read more about the procedure on our page.
- Can it prevent and remove ingrown hairs?
Ingrown hairs are a reality with shaving, depilatory creams and waxing. When the new growth comes through, the hair can often become stuck, creating inflamed, bumpy skin. As laser destroys the follicle, not only are existing ingrown hairs damaged and removed, future occurrences are entirely prevented. The procedure can provide targeted relief and treatment to ingrown hairs, even for Brazilians and male facial hair.
- Why choose to ASSURE COSMETIC STUDIO?
Unlike most clinics, our clinic uses a grid system that ensures every inch of the body area is covered. Through this method, you can be sure all hairs will be targeted and results will be noticeable early on in the treatment process. We also don’t charge extra for missed patches, whereas others will charge for this service.
One of the biggest worries that people have, when they get the treatment, is the burns on the skin. Unlike some clinics that use ice packs (which is not the safest method to reduce the chance of burning and pain), we use a Dynamic Cooling Device that emits a safe cold spray of cryogen onto your skin synchronized with each pulse. This system cools the skin and prevents burning, making it one of the most advanced and safest methods of safeguarding.
We also offer a comprehensive consultation to ensure you are suitable for the treatment, as well as providing you with a custom treatment plan. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priority.
Make an informed decision on the clinic you visit for your treatments – your safety should be the highest priority, so beware of production line companies or those that charge by the minute.
