Getting rid of unsightly or excess hair can be a struggle. Constant shaving, painful waxing and near-tortuous epilation can make the process of achieving smoother, hair-free skin, difficult and time consuming. Laser hair removal is the most effective way to permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face and body.
Here at Skin Perfection in the heart of London, we are experts on this procedure; we deliver this treatment daily, with superb results.
If you are considering laser hair removal, there may be questions that you haven’t yet had answered or might not have even considered. Therefore, we have listed the most common questions we get asked here at Skin Perfection, so that you have the knowledge to make an informed decision about whether laser hair removal is right for you.
- How does laser hair removal work?
In a treatment with laser hair removal, a specially developed laser device is used on the skin and emits short bursts of multi-wave light which, over a course of treatment, stunts the hair growth by stopping blood supply to the hair. Other tissues remain un-damaged during this process. This laser light permanently limits the follicle’s ability to regrow and the existing hair falls out.
Over time, regrowth is permanently reduced or even removed completely.
- How do I know if I am suitable for laser hair removal?
There are many different laser devices on the market and some can only treat fair skins. At Skin Perfection London, we use the Cynosure™, gold standard, multi-wavelength range of laser devices. These devices are medical-grade and proven to be the most effective and safe in treating a range of skin types from very fair to very dark skins.
Before a treatment here at Skin Perfection London, we will conduct a no obligation consultation to ensure you are fit and well for treatment and we will also discuss your potential results with laser hair removal.
- How many treatments will I need?
This all depends on your skin and hair type. You may need on average between 6 and 9 sessions of laser hair removal to obtain optimum results but may also start to see results after 1 or 2 sessions. Your individual response is dependent on your skin and hair type. Darker skins may need more sessions for the treatment to be most effective.
A bespoke treatment plan will be put together during your discussion with our laser team when you visit us for a consultation.
- Why should I consider laser hair removal with Cynosure™ at Skin Perfection, London?
Laser hair removal can offer permanent reduction of hair growth as the hair thins and weakens during a course of treatment. After which, only top up treatments will be required perhaps once a year. We only use approved, medical-grade machines and our therapists are highly-trained and qualified to deliver the results you will love. We know all there is to know about laser hair removal and consider ourselves the crème de la crème for this treatment.
When you use the best equipment, the best laser hair removal London has to offer is available at our centrally-located, discreet clinic.
- Is there downtime or side-effects with laser hair removal?
With laser hair removal, surrounding skin and tissues are not affected during the process. There is no need for an anaesthetic and you are fully awake during your treatment. There are no side-effects and minimal if not no skin irritation. You can return to your daily activities immediately after your treatment and no one will know you have had anything done!
- Can both men and women have laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is suitable for both men and women and can be used on the face and body. The treatment can offer a permanent solution to unwanted, unsightly excess hair that can inhibit and affect the lives of those who experience it. At Skin Perfection London, we are passionate about improving the self-image and the confidence of those who suffer the embarrassment of excess hair, for good!
