4 Things You Need To Know About Laser Hair Removal

Doing away with unwanted body hair on your legs, chest and back can feel like a daunting task. It gets much worse when the hair keeps growing back despite all your shaving and waxing attempts. If you have run out of options like most people have, then it might be the right moment to think about laser hair removal at Skin by Dr Caroline’s advanced skin clinic in Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire. It is an effective method for hair removal that has helped hundreds of thousands of people across the UK.

To give you a better understanding of this procedure, here are 4 important things to know.

1. Laser hair removal works!!!

If you have been sceptical about undergoing laser hair removal, then it’s time to cast away your doubts, because it works wonders! This procedure uses a laser that specifically targets and eliminate hair growth by passing energy down the pigmented hair shaft into the follicle, thus leaving the rest of the skin untouched.  The good thing is that it works on just about any part of the body and the results are long term.

2. Plan right for the procedure

The first thing to do is to understand it is a medical procedure and by that fact, you will need to visit a professional for a patch test and full consultation. Also, keep in mind that there is some degree of risk included in the process. Some people may have some skin irritation depending on the sensitivity of the skin, but it’s temporary and will lessen during your treatment sessions as hair thickness is reduced and fewer hair follicles remain. 

The most important preparation is to ensure that, six weeks prior to the procedure, you avoid any sort of waxing or electrolysis on your skin. This is because laser hair removal works on your hair by targeting the pigment in the hair strand and passing the heat energy into the follicle, and therefore, the procedure will be less effective if you interfere with the hair growth. Shaving is allowed since it doesn’t interfere with the hair follicles.

3. What to expect during the procedure

The whole procedure can take anywhere from 3 minutes to an hour depending on where the hairs are, how many you have and the type of machine used.  Your skin therapist might ask you to wear some eye-wear depending on the area of your body that is having treatment.  In some cases, you might need to return for extra treatments beyond your initial course of 6, to ensure good hair reduction. 

4. Laser hair removal won’t cost a fortune

Like any other medical procedure, laser hair removal prices will vary according to the requirements of the treatment needed.  If the procedure is being performed on a smaller area, then it will cost less than a procedure performed on both legs and chest. It is also important to understand that different clinics will offer different packages and thus different prices. However, you should do your research thoroughly, because the cheapest is often the least effective. At Skin by Dr Caroline, we offer a 25% discount when a course of 6 sessions is booked and paid for upfront, making laser hair removal accessible and affordable.
