Deciding to remove unwanted body hair using laser hair removal can seem like a big decision. However, laser hair removal creates amazing results and many benefits. Read on to see some of the benefits you can expect from this transformative treatment.
Reduces hair growth, and is long lasting
We recommend 8-12 sessions for laser hair removal, however, this can be different for everyone. Although laser hair removal is not permanent, you will see up to 90% hair reduction. Annual top ups are also recommended to stay hair free and to keep your skin silky and smooth.
Laser hair removal is used as an alternative to waxing, plucking, shaving etc. Although for the first few sessions of your laser hair removal journey you will need to shave in between treatments, in the long run it is more convenient and less time-consuming as your skin will be smooth and hair free.
Helps avoid ingrown hairs
Ingrown hairs are hairs that grow back into the skin. They are bumps which can often be painful, itchy and irritable. Laser hair removal is the best choice for getting rid of ingrown hairs. This is because laser hair removal damages the hair follicle directly, leaving the hair follicle delayed to producing hair. Whereas, when you pluck the hair, the hair follicle is not damaged and can still produce hair straight away. This means there is still a possibility of getting an ingrown hair again.
Positive impact on the planet
Did you know that every year approximately 2 billion razors end up in landfill, as they are not recycled. Starting your laser hair removal journey will help the impact you have on our planet.
Suitable for all skin types
The Laser we use at Skin Care Clinics is a Long-Pulsed Polaris ND YAG laser. This laser uses the maximum wavelength there is at 1064 nanometre. This makes it the safest form of laser hair removal and the most effective across all skin types. As the laser light penetrates deeper into the skin than any other laser light this ensures long term results with a very low risk of causing hyper or hypo pigmentation for clients of all skin types.
Thinner hair regrowth
Laser light is attracted to the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy from the laser is converted to heat, which then damages the hair follicle. As the hair follicle is damaged it delays the produce of any more hairs. Eventually, the hair will grow back if the recommended sessions are not kept on top of. The hair that does grow back is always thinner and usually lighter due to the lack of melanin.
Improved skin tone and texture
During your laser hair removal journey, you will not wax at all. In the beginning of this journey, you will be shaving a little, and then towards the end of your journey you will not be shaving. This means that laser hair removal reduces the risk that both waxing and shaving can give you. What is this risk? Shaving and waxing the same area repeatedly can cause skin pigmentation and an uneven skin tone.
Facial laser hair removal can make the skin smoother by eliminating the possibility of bumpy skin or stubble making the skin rougher.
