Over the coming months here at The Laser Treatment Clinic, we will be writing a set of guides covering all our treatments.
This will inform you on just what to expect when you come into see us for a course of treatment, how we aim to treat you and why it should be The Laser Treatment Clinic that you choose to visit.
In this edition of ‘The Laser Treatment Clinics Guide To…’ we are taking a look at laser hair removal:
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal treatments work by using a laser light aimed at the area of the skin you want to remove the hair from.
As the laser passes through the skin it converts to heat. This heat is absorbed by the hair pigment in the hair follicle.
This absorption of heat causes damage to the follicle inhibiting growth in the future.
Things You Need To Know
Before you come in from your laser treatment you should shave the area you are having treated. Don’t wax it because this can open up your pores as it removes your hair. You just need to make sure that the clinic can see under your hair to your skin and pores.
You should also make sure to stay out of the sun so that you don’t have an active tan which can cause damage to your skin before or soon after your treatment. We advise this because your sun can be super sensitive after a laser treatment.
The one thing that many people don’t realise is that laser hair removal isn’t a one treatment wonder. It doesn’t happen in 10 minutes, it takes time for the treatment to work and for the cells to stop producing hairs at the usual rate.
Why Choose Laser Treatment Over Shaving And Waxing?
This might make it sound like a lot of work but laser hair removal treatments, especially that provided by The Laser Treatment Clinic have proven to give effective and lasting results and most cases permanent results. Our evidence; clients treated 17 years ago have not yet been back for the same treatment.
After a free consultation where you can talk to dedicated and experienced staff about the procedures, you will be given a patch test.
Once everything is good to go and your appointments are booked in you will be well on your way to clear and healthy-looking hair-free skin with the help of The Laser Treatment Clinic
