Why does Laser Hair Removal cost more than IPL?

Is Laser Hair Removal permanent?

Unfortunately, it isn’t. Eventually the dormant hair follicles can heal and reproduce new hair growth. Skin tone, hair colour and hair thickness are the three main bodily characteristics that work together to determine what level of permanence Laser Hair Removal is likely to achieve so the final result differ from client to client. Your personal traits will determine the regrowth you experience

On average, Laser Hair Removal treatments offer a 70% to 90% permanent reduction of hair in the treated area. Laser hair removal is the most effective form or hair removal over waxing, tweezing or shaving so is it still worth it? Yes!

 

Can I have hair removal done after I've been in the sun?

Definitely not! Lasers and Light based devices are highly sensitive to colour. The brown pigment in your skin, whether your skin type or from an active tan, absorb the heat from the laser which can cause permanent discolouration, redness, scabbing or irreversible damage on the skin. Be sure your Technician knows that you’ve had sun exposure so the treatment can be postponed until the tan is no longer active or that they are using the appropriate laser for your skin type. Never hesitate to ask your Laser Tech questions

 

6 Important things to know about laser

  • Avoid waxing or plucking at least six weeks prior to a treatment. The laser needs a hair to be there in the hair shaft

  • Accutane clients should wait six months before a laser treatment. This medication makes the skin photo sensitive

  • You may need multiple treatments to effectively slow the growth down enough. One treatment won’t cut it

  • Avoid sun bed, outdoor or sunless tanning for a minimum of 3 weeks or 20 days before your laser treatment

  • We cannot treat over top of tattoos, pigmented lesions or permanent make-up

  • No clients are alike in anyway, as with any treatment, the results and treatment quantities vary from one person to the next

 

Imagine never having to shave again...sounds dreamy. An appointment with a well trained qualified Laser Tech using an effective machine like the G Max Pro and you'll be hair free for a very long time
