DIODE LASER produces an intensive but gentle burst of light that reduces hair growth via selective destruction of the hair follicle without harming the surrounding tissue.
Laser hair removal is successful for most clients but results in all clients cannot be ensured or guaranteed.
An estimate of 6-10 treatments is required for a significant reduction of hair, and it is challenging to advise on the exact number of procedures one may need.
Treatments must be performed within 4-8 weeks to receive the most effective treatment.
The procedure is not painless and is described as flinging of an elastic band with a bit of heat.
Be aware permanent hair reduction may not be achieved by all clients, mainly female clients with fine facial hair of during an increased time of hormonal activity, e.g. menopause, puberty, pregnancy, and polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Laser treatment will not work on light blonde, red, white or grey hair.
No guarantee has been made with regards to dormant follicle that maybe triggered by hormonal changes, stress, illness, pregnancy or other causes.
Facial, neck, chest hair on females is hormonal, and the laser does not stop hormones from producing new hair. Hair will decrease, but it is unlikely that it will disappear – numerous treatments will be needed.
Immediately following laser treatment, the treated area may be red and mildly swollen for few hours, this can be calmed using ice and Aloe Vera gel.
