Treatment Information

How does laser hair removal work?

Targeted bursts of light energy are delivered to the problem area and absorbed by hair-filled follicles. Melanin in the hair absorbs the light and turns it into heat energy, damaging the hair follicle and preventing re-growth. Because lasers are targeting Melanin, the colour in the hair, this treatment is unsuitable for those with white hair, certain types of red hair and less successful for grey and very fair types.

Can all hair be treated?

The general principle for hair removal is the darker the hair and the lighter the skin, the more successful the treatment.

Treatments are customised according to hair colour, texture and location. Any hair with at least some pigment can be treated, therefore white, white blonde or white/grey hairs do not respond to this treatment.

FAQs

Hair grows in three different cycles and any laser hair removal system can only successfully destroy hair during its growth stage. Therefore we recommend a minimum of 6 treatments, 4-8 weeks apart to deliver the best result.

Sessions can last from a few minutes (underarms, bikini, face etc )to about an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. With the vacuum assisted high speed handpiece full backs or a full legs can be done in just 15 minutes with minimal pain and no gel.

Our laser damages the root of the hair to an extent that significantly impedes re-growth. Most of the roots do not re-grow but occasionally some do. In addition, new hairs from previously empty follicles are developing all the time so it is usually necessary to have an annual ‘maintenance’ treatment to keep hair free.

Lightsheer Duet™ hand-piece for large areas uses a slight vacuum to draw skin and hair into the hand-piece in order to deliver the energy more efficiently.

Lightsheer™ ET produces a rapid pinprick sensation which is reduced by the in-treatment cooling system.

Lightsheer™ HS produces a suction and gentle heat sensation which provides minimal discomfort and requires no gel or cooling.

After the treatment, the treated hairs will fall out for up to 14 days. Your skin may be a little red after treatment, but this will calm down quickly and you will able to return to your normal daily routine after treatment. Some people with sensitive skin may benefit from using a soothing gel, a cool pack or Aloe Vera for a few hours following treatment.

The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure and skin type. Side effects, if any, are usually minor. There may be some redness and swelling around the treated hair follicles; this is a desired clinical result indicating that the follicle has responded to treatment. This reaction typically disappears within hours.

Most people return to normal activity right away. On rare occasions, some blistering may occur, but this typically resolves quickly. The skin can become darker or lighter following treatment, but will generally return to normal within a few weeks. Limiting sun exposure before and after each treatment will minimize the risk of complications.

Customer Testimonial

"I have had my underarms and bikini lasered at LasaDerm, and I have to say the staff are exceptional. I highly recommend their treatments, and laser hair removal is most definitely worth the money – I just wish I had done it earlier!"
