Waxing, plucking, and shaving are perfect ways for people to have smooth looking hairless skin, but they’re all time-consuming methods that you need to repeat frequently.
If you’re tired of managing your body hair, a more permanent solution is laser hair removal. It’s a high-tech method that uses light to destroy hair follicles, leaving you with skin that’s fuzz-free.
Those who love silky smooth skin with a constant fresh feeling, then laser hair removal by an expert like Thérapie Clinic is for you! It’s time to part way with unwanted hair, the pain of waxing, ingrown hair, shaving nicks and razor bumps.
Before you say bye-bye to your present hair removal methods, here are the answers to a few questions you may have about laser hair removal.
How does it work?
A technician uses an instrument on the skin that produces a laser beam. The beam targets hair follicles and with the help of light and heat, it halts the growth of hair.
How soon will I see results?
Almost immediately. These results last many months to even years depending on your hair growth and skin. When hair grows back it is much finer, thinner and less noticeable.
How many treatments do I need?
Unfortunately, you can’t zap away all your hair in one sitting – it’s a multi-session operation. Only after a few sessions, you will be able to remove all your unwanted hair. The average is 3 to 7 sessions and to see the best results we recommend you wait 4 to 6 weeks.
Does it hurt?
The level of discomfort varies from person to person. But most people say it can feel uncomfortable more than painful. If it hurts, the pain is tolerable. The initial few sessions have more discomfort/pain and overtime as the hair growth reduces, the pain comes down too. There’s also the option of applying numbing creams 20 minutes before the treatment.
Are there any side effects?
A few minor side effects like swelling, mild redness and mild discomfort will last 1 to 3 days. Some uncommon side effects include blistering/burning, infections, scarring, etc. These are rare and will not occur if you visit a licensed professional with significant experience.
What are the aftercare instructions?
Your doctor will give you a set of detailed instructions to follow. To see the best results, it’s recommended that you follow them to the tee. These include:
● Use sunscreen
● Avoid direct sunlight
● Apply moisturiser and a cold compress on the area until discomfort and redness reduces
How should I prepare for laser hair removal?
You need to stop waxing, shaving or plucking at least 6 weeks before the procedure. If possible, limit sun exposure.
What parts of the body can I do laser hair removal on?
From the chest to face to back to arms to legs and even the bikini area, you can perform laser hair removal on any of these areas.
Is laser hair removal only for women?
No! Both men and women can undergo this process. A lot of men turn to laser hair removal to eliminate their facial hair to avoid shaving and use the process on their chest and back.
How long does it take to recover?
After laser hair removal you can resume normal activities after you complete your session.
How much does laser hair removal cost?
The cost of the treatment varies from clinic to clinic. Treatments typically come in packages of three or six sittings. The cost also varies based on the area that you are treating.
