Laser Hair Removal Frequently Asked Questions
Can I remove any hair with laser hair removal?
Can Men Have Laser Hair Removal?
Yes. One of the reasons laser hair removal is ideal for men is that it works equally well across the entire body and has long-lasting results. From a few unwanted tufts, to an entire back, chest or stomach, laser hair removal is efficient and effective. Sk:n offer specialist laser hair removal for men treatments.
Does It Matter Where I Go For Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
The highly trained practitioners at sk:n will always provide effective laser hair removal treatment tailored to your skin type.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
Laser Hair Removal is described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band. The more sessions you have, the less pain you feel as there are fewer hair follicles targeted.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The laser emits light energy, which is absorbed by melanin in the hair. If in the right stage of growth, this causes the hair follicle to overheat and damages the bulb, preventing regrowth. The process is called photothermolysis.
How Long Does Laser Hair Removal Last?
Clients can see a permanent result of up to 90% reduction in hair growth. Results are dependent on hair type and colour and permanent hair reduction that lasts can be achieved.
Is Laser Hair Removal Expensive?
Compared to the cost of a lifetime’s shaving or waxing, laser hair removal sessions are great value for money. It’s also important to remember that cheaper Laser Hair Removal doesn’t always mean better or safe.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
Our treatments are very gentle and virtually pain-free. Some of our patients compare the sensation to the flick of an elastic band.
Is Laser Hair Removal Right For Me?
Treatment is safe on all skin types and colours, so it’s suitable for anyone looking for permanent, silky-smooth results. As the laser is attracted to the pigment of the hair follicle, the only consideration is whether your unwanted hair has enough pigment to be treated. Your practitioner will discuss this in your free consultation.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Absolutely, laser hair removal is safe. The laser targets only the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. You may experience some redness, but this should subside within 24 hours.
Is Laser Hair Removal Unsafe?
Laser hair removal at sk:n is never unsafe. Our Medical Standards Team set out strict protocols and audit our clinics every month to make sure we follow every procedure correctly.
Is Laser Hair Removal Unsuitable For Darker Skin?
Laser hair treatment is fine for any skin type or colour, as long as your hairs are dark enough to attract the laser.
What If My Skin Is Not Its Natural Colour?
Got a tan? Had a skin reaction to something? No problem, it’s just really important that you let us know, as this can make a difference when it comes to providing the best treatment.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
The treatment uses brief pulses of light energy to damage hair follicles, preventing regrowth. This gives the most effective, longest lasting hair removal results available.
What results will I see with laser hair removal?
The treatment is FDA approved to give a long-term hair reduction of up to 90%. You can expect to see the best results with a course of treatments, after which the hair will have been reduced dramatically and the skin left silky-smooth.
Will Laser Hair Removal Feel The Same Every Time?
As you have more sessions, we target fewer and fewer follicles – so you’ll feel the laser less each time.
Will Treatment Make My Skin Sore?
Our treatments will never harm your skin. There may be a little redness, but this will fade within 24 hours.
What Are The Benefits And Is It Worth Getting Laser Hair Removal?
• With a permanent reduction in growth an average of 68 – 74%. the hair will be finer, lighter and much slower growing with the additional benefit of smoother skin.
• By shaving far less often you will never need to worry about seeing a hair shadow or prickly legs again.
• The money you spend on waxing over time and the toll it takes on the skin,makes hair removal a way to maintain skins health and save money in the long run.
• Hair removal on the face will take away the dark shadow improve skin tone from need to wax shave and pluck are less or not at all in some cases. Reduces embarrassment and the need to constantly use make up to cover the shadow.
• Ingrown hair can completely go after having a course of laser hair removal- no more painful waxing sessions and subsequent scarring.
How Permanent Is Laser Hair Removal?
In a sample of over 10,000 treatments, the average hair reduction after 12 treatments was 68 – 74%. A minimum of 8 treatments is required.
Hair growth has many factors and hormones play a big part in hair growth, so top up treatments to maintain the reduction may be required but it is worth it to keep the skin smooth and the hair reduce and slow growing- especially if you suffer from ingrown hairs.
Is It Better To Wax Or Have Laser Hair Removal?
Waxing regularly and over long periods of time can cause damage such as darkening and lightening of the skin (hyper and hypo pigmentation) in grown hairs which can lead to scarring. With laser hair removal as it permanently reduces the thickness of the hairs and isn’t abrasive to the skin it doesn’t have any detrimental effects to the skins tone and texture and as after a course of treatments the hair is reduces in thickness darkness and amount the regularity of removing the hair is massively reduced and can help the skin return near to normal condition.
Can You Get Cancer From Laser Hair Removal?
No – Cancer is caused by UV spectrum of light- ultra violet light which irradiates the cell’s DNA causing irregular growth changes which can cause cancerous growths . Laser hair removal uses the red spectrum of light- specifically infra-red which is only absorbed by the dark pigment in your hair called melanin. This cause no changes to your skin cells and is very safe.
