Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to reduce unwanted hair growth, and it offers many benefits compared to traditional hair removal methods.

1 – Permanent – Unlike other hair removal methods, laser hair removal permanently stops hair growth for smooth, fuzz-free skin.   2 – Targeted – Laser hair removal can target specific areas, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged making it ideal for small and sensitive areas like the face, underarms, and bikini line.   3 – Preventative – Reduced irritation from ingrown hairs and razor burns caused by shaving and waxing.   4 – Convenient – Laser hair removal can save you time since it doesn’t require daily maintenance like shaving or waxing.   5 – Quick – Laser hair removal treatments are quick and easy, typically taking only a few minutes to complete.   6 – Comfortable – Laser hair removal is relatively painless, thanks to advances in technology.   7 – Empowering – Eliminate bothersome hair for silky smooth skin 365 days of the year.    

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

There are a few things you will need to do to prepare for laser hair removal treatment:
  • Avoid the sun 4-6 weeks before and after treatment – recently tanned skin (naturally or with tanning products) cannot be treated.

  • No bleaching, plucking, or waxing hair for 4-6 weeks before treatment.

  • The use of self-tanning skin products must be discontinued one week before treatment. Any residual self-tanner should be removed before treatment.

  • Shave the night before / morning of your appointment

  • No lotions / moisturisers should be applied to the area on the day of your appointment

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

Your technician will clean the treatment area to remove body oils and ensure the hair is as short as possible. Safety considerations are important during the laser procedure. Both you and your laser technician will wear protective eyewear during the procedure to protect your eyes. GentleMax Pro Laser will emit pulses of light onto the treatment area destroying the hair follicles and preventing hair growth. The CCD (cryogen cooling device), will be used with the laser to cool the skin during treatment. Most people experience minimal discomfort during laser hair removal treatment. Some people may feel a warm or tingling sensation, while others may feel a slight stinging.

After Laser Hair Removal

  • After your laser hair removal treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling in the treatment area – this is completely normal! The swelling may last up to 2-3 days.
  • Avoid sun exposure for a few days after your treatment and no active tanning for 4-6 weeks (including tanning solutions).
  • Use a sunblock (SPF 30+) at all times throughout the course of treatment.
  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin. Do not use any other hair removal treatment products or similar treatments (waxing, electrolysis or tweezing) that will disturb the hair follicle in the treatment area for 4-6 weeks after the laser treatment is performed. Shaving may be used.
  • Makeup may be used immediately after the treatment as long as the skin is not irritated.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Do I Need?

Because our hair goes through 4-6 week growth cycles, not all hairs are at a stage to effectively absorb the heat needed to destroy the follicle, which is why multiple treatments are required. We recommend 7-10 treatments depending on your hair texture, colour, and density. One of our laser hair technicians will be able to advise you on the number of treatments you may need.   CHECK PRICING AND TREATMENT AREAS HERE
