What to expect during your treatment? And how skin will be after the laser?
The laser we use is connected to a cool air glide, which blows at the skin at the same time as the laser fires to the targeted area, which makes your treatment more pleasant. You may still feel an element of heat and a few little pricks at the skin, but this is totally manageable and some times may not feel anything at all.
Your skin will usually look normal, however depending on how your skin absorbs the heat it may appear slightly red or come up with a little heat rash, which is most cases only lasts for an hour. It can be reduced by our skin recovery kit designed for patients to use post procedure which contains anti- inflammatory ingredients and technology to repair the skin within two hours. Usually slight redness is all that you will experience, but by the time you leave it has usually disappeared.
How should I manage my hair in-between treatments?
We would ask you to refrain from waxing, threading, epilating or anything that may remove your hair from the roots. In order for you to obtain the most out of your laser sessions we need the roots available so we can keep destroying them with our laser. Our aim is to ensure no more hairs will grow from those follicles treated. You simply can shave or trim only and you will be required to trim or shave 24 hours before the treatment.
