Frequently asked questions
Does Laser hair removal hurt?
How many sessions will I need?
Most clients need 6-10 treatments for optimum results.However the amount of treatments you need will be determined in your consultation. It will depend on many factors including hair type,skin colour, skin type etc.
Can you treat all skin types?
Yes all skin types can be treated. We use the most advanced technology laser which allows us to treat any skin type safely and effectively!
How often do you need to get the treatment done?
Initially we recommend 4-8 weeks depending on your hair growth. This time will increase as your hair growth reduces. Its important to catch the hairs in the correct stage of growth for the treatment to be most effective and work as quickly as possible. Your therapist will recommend the best timeline for you!
Do I need a patch test?
Yes! We Give all clients a complimentary patch test to determine suitability for the treatment, fully explain what’s entailed and also to answer any questions you may have.
How do I prepare for the treatment?
Pre care advice is simple!
Shaving should be your only method of hair removal once you sign up for your treatment. Waxing will counteract the effect of laser hair removal so its a big NO NO.
Shave the area 8-12 hours before your treatment. No stubble to be present.
No active products such as AHA’s, BHA’s and retinol for 48 hours before treatment.
Wear loose clothes coming to your appointment.
