What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair treatment is a safe and permanent solution to unwanted or excess hair for men and women. It is suitable for most areas of the face and body and a course of Cynosure’s Elite Plus laser treatments at Dermis Clinic will leave your skin visibly clear of hair, soft and smooth. Here at Dermis Clinic we use the most hi-tech and advanced lasers currently on the market. We can treat all skin types from Fitzpatrick grade 1-6. This means we can treat darker skin shades safely and effectively.
How does it work?
The laser emits a concentrated beam of laser light that passes the skin and penetrates deeply to target the hair follicle. The hair follicle absorbs the light and the hair follicle is completely destroyed. Once the follicle is destroyed the hair can never grow again.
Is it safe?
Yes. Lasers used for the application of hair removal there have been no reported incidents of causing any long term health issues. Our lasers are designed so that we can tailor and tune the settings of the laser to suit your individual skin type and scenario.
Does it hurt?
The laser treatment causes some mild discomfort, some have ascribed it like little rubber bands flicking against the skin. To further decrease the discomfort our lasers have an amazing cooling system which can cool the skin to numbing temperatures to prevent any discomfort caused.
After the Treatment?
The area which has been treated may turn red and bumpy (peri-follicular oedema) this is a completely normal response and will subside in 1-2 days. In fact this result is the clinical end-point we look for for successful treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Based on the most recently published data in medical journals, we have decided that a course of 6-8 treatments is required for effective results. The reason for this? Laser only works when the hair is in its growing phase (anagen stage), within any given area of the body at any given time 60-90% of the hair in that area will be in that stage. Therefore, a course of treatments over 6-8 months will cover all the follicles in the anagen stage. Top up treatments are required, based on personal preferences. You will also need to shave the treated area at least 24 hours before treatment.
Will the treated hair ever grow back?
The short answer is no. Hair’s in anagen stage which have been treated will not grow back. The FDA has approved laser hair removal as a permanent method of permanent hair reduction. Over a course of 6-8 sessions the hair will be lighter, thinner and up to 80% will be removed. Top up sessions are required to maintain hair free skin.
