Having made the decision to start your laser hair removal journey is the first step in becoming hair free.
Each session will consist of an ongoing medical consent to see if there have been any changes to your lifestyle, medication, and health.
Laser hair removal offers a permanent reduction to unwanted hair. It saves you time from shaving, waxing and plucking. Laser hair removal sessions are conducted every 4-6 weeks apart. This is due to the hair growth cycle and the time it takes for the hair to be in the anagen phase which is the active hair growth period. The anagen phase is ideal for the laser hair removal treatment.
Each session only a certain number of hairs will be in the active growth phase. This is the reason why a treatment course of laser hair removal is recommended. One single treatment of laser hair removal is not enough to give long lasting results. A package of 6 treatments can effectively reduce hair by 65-75% on average. After each session around 20-30% of hair reduction can occur.
Results vary from person to person and each session your therapist will ask about your shaving habits and how often you need to shave. Our experienced therapists will examine the area during a visual assessment to look at the hair follicles. The settings of the laser are set out within our laser protocols which have been tried and tested to give you the most optimum results possible.

Following the laser hair removal session, you may notice that the hairs sprout back out very quickly but please do not be alarmed by this. This is perfectly normal as these are the hairs that were already within the skin at the time of the treatment. You can shave these hairs off, or hair shedding may occur naturally (Please note not all clients have hair shedding).
A course of 6-12 sessions is the minimum we recommend. Our packages start at 6 sessions and then our therapists will assess the hair reduction and advise you on the best possible package for you to continue your laser hair removal journey. Prices for the maintenance packages are bespoke to your needs and requirements.
Within the first 3 sessions you should start to notice areas of patchy hair growth, hair shedding or finer regrowth of the hair. These are all an excellent indication that the laser hair removal treatments are working. Sometimes it can take longer than 3 sessions to see the results. The results depend on many different factors such as medical conditions, hormonal imbalance, medication and density of the hair.
We must remember that laser hair removal is a journey, and the journey length is different for each client. Our experienced therapists are with you on this journey. If you have any questions, concerns or you just want to discuss your results then please do not hesitate to contact us and we will arrange this for you with your therapist.
Our laser is comfortable for the client, it is virtually pain free with contact cooling to the area to soothe the skin at the same time. The contact cooling helps relieve any irritation, erythema and make the treatment more tolerable for the client. Many clients have stated that the most they feel is a warmth sensation. Our therapist will ask during your treatment of your comfort levels between 1 and 10 (10 being painful). If at any point your comfort levels go above 6 the therapist can adjust the treatment to make it more comfortable. Please let the therapist know during your treatment.
Remember we are here for you on this journey. This is not your laser hair removal journey; it is our journey together!
