What is Laser Hair removal and why I love it!
Laser hair removal is one of the top 3 googled beauty treatments at the moment. It is a treatment that is not only a life saver for many men and women in terms of controlling unwanted hair, but it is also a time saver, considering how much time we all spend on shaving and for the waxers out there, laser hair removal is in the long run, a financial gain! I personally love this treatment, as I lead a busy life with no time to shave every day and I always forget to book in my wax every month, so it always becomes really painful. And although my hair is quite blond, always staying on-top of staying hairless, was always really difficult. That was until I started having Laser hair removal.
I started with my bikini area, and moved on to my legs and underarms. Now after 6-7 sessions I am happy to say that I am virtually hair free and I started seeing the difference from the first couple of sessions.
How does it work?
A lot of my clients ask me what exactly is laser hair removal and how does it work?
I am going to try and explain it to you in the simplest way: The Laser hair removal machine emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. It transports this light down via the hair shaft into the hair bulb. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages this bulb. They are the ones that produce hair. The damage inhibits the hair growth, as long as we catch it in the growing phase, also known as the Anagen phase.
That is why it is very important to stick to your recommended session intervals, as it gives you the best results.
The treatment interval for laser hair removal on your legs would be every 6-8 weeks whilst on your face it would be every 4 weeks.
All clients would need a minimum of 6 treatments, with 2-4 treatments as extra top-ups. Waxing and plucking are strictly prohibited during the course.
Before you start your initial treatment, you will need a thorough consultation and patch test at the clinic, where your laser specialist will go through the ins and outs of laser hair removal, as well as check your health and possible contraindications. During this time, you will have ample opportunity to ask lots of questions.
Having had laser hair removal was a godsend for me. Now I don’t have to worry about shaving or waxing every time I go out, and I can just slip on my favourite outfit without any worries. It’s just so lovely!
So what about you?
