To prepare for a laser hair removal treatment you will need to shave the area of skin the day before. On the day, you’ll wear specially designed goggles to protect your eyes. Local anaesthetic isn’t necessary but the aesthetician can apply a numbing cream to the area of skin being treated if required. A hand-held device is then held to your skin and the laser is triggered. This may feel like an elastic band snapping at your skin. Most patients find this bearable, but slight discomfort may be felt if you are extremely sensitive. Each session takes between 15 minutes to an hour depending on the number of areas being treated. Once the treatment is done, a cooling gel is applied to the area and you are able to resume your day.
Suitable for the face and body, a course of treatments is usually required at four to eight a weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle. The treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and free from both unsightly hairs and painful in-grown hairs.Go to Treatment
