Laser Hair Removal London at bodytonic clinic

The use of laser therapy is fast becoming a popular choice for hair reduction for both men and women. Here at the bodytonic clinic we use the INITIA diode laser machine designed and created by British manufacturer Lynton. This machine provides safe and effective permanent hair reduction for both the face and body.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe aesthetic procedure that uses a laser to remove unwanted hair. During the treatment the laser emits light energy which is absorbed by the melanin in the hair. Melanin is the natural pigmentation that determines the colour of your hair. The light energy produced by the laser is converted into heat. The heat produced damages the hair follicles which in turn delays future hair regrowth.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal is used due to its effective results of delaying hair regrowth for long periods of time. However it does not usually result in permanent hair removal. The reason behind this is due to the hair growth cycle. Initially the laser will affect the hairs that are in their anagen phase of hair regrowth, this is known as the active phase and is when the hair is totally attached to the follicle receiving all the nutrients needed to grow. Treatment during this active period results in the destruction of the hair follicle as well as its nutrient supply.
Each individual hairs growth cycle is unique, this means that in some of the treatments hairs may be in the other phases of hair regrowth, these include the catagen, or latent stage of hair growth. Hairs in these stages of growth will not be harmed by the treatment and will grow back when the treatment is finished. Laser treatment can also cause hair follicles to go dormant rather than kill them.
This is the reason why a course of laser hair removal treatments are needed for the initial stages of the hair removal. Sixe cycles of treatment are required as a minimum. These should occur every four to six weeks. It is also recommended to have maintenance treatments every six to twelve months for the most effective and sustained results.

Hair regrowth rates vary from person to person. Many factors influence the rate of regrowth, including skin tone, hair colour, hormonal changes related to age and the presence of tattoos.
Laser hair removal can have successful results on both men and women and on all skin types. Common areas to get treated to help reduce unwanted hair include:

  • Legs
  • Underarm
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Bikini, Hollywood, Brazilian
  • Upper Lip
  • Chin

It is possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area of the body apart from the eyelid and surrounding area, this is due to the possibility of severe eye injury. Speak to one of our qualified therapists today to find out if this is the right treatment for you.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Safe and Effective Technology
At the bodytonic clinic we have chosen the best in terms of laser technology, we use the Lynton INITIA Diode laser which is a new generation laser machine. Lynton laser is the UKs number one laser manufacturer which prides itself on delivering safe and effective high quality aesthetic devices.

Permanent Hair Reduction
The INITIA diode laser machine was specifically designed to deliver safe, ‘pain free’ treatments to all skin types. For this reason you can take comfort that your treatment for permanent hair reduction at bodytonic clinic will be safe, cost effective, reliable and virtually ‘pain free’.

Reduces Ingrown Hairs
Laser hair removal works by directing the laser light energy directly onto the hair follicle. The light energy is converted into heat and targets the hair follicle at the root. The heat created by the light energy destroys the hair follicle affecting its ability to grow hair.

Cost Effective
Laser hair removal is an effective and safe treatment used to permanently reduce hair regrowth. Over time fewer treatments will be needed to help sustain the reduced hair regrowth. Here at the bodytonic clinic we offer treatment packages at discounted rates.

The Lynton Laser Machine

Lynton is a British company that collaborates with Manchester University to develop the safest laser systems in the market. Lyton have been in business for more than 20 years and have a large number of aesthetic and clinical machines. They work with many well known companies and a number of well-known medical facilities, including the NHS.

There are various types of lasers with varying powers, so deciding which one to use is critical when wanting to achieve satisfying results. A laser’s power needs to be well made in order for it to be effective. When less energy is used, the hair follicle will only be weakened short term, not destroyed. For laser hair removal here at bodytonic clinic we use the INITIA Diode Laser, which uses high-power technology.

With the INITIA Diode Laser, there are two modes in which the laser can work; STANDARD and MOTION. The main difference between the two modes is the fluences used. By fluences we mean the energy delivered to the treated area. MOTION mode uses lower fluences which means it can destroy the vital part of the hair with less discomfort. It can be used on all skin types, great for thicker and darker hair. STANDARD mode delivers high fluences in one shot which means it can reach higher temperatures. This can make treatment uncomfortable but gives optimal results within a few treatments. Great for lighter skin types and fine and lighter hairs.

It is in MOTION mode that Lynton laser’s IceTip technology is activated. The combination of IceTip technology allows for an almost pain-free treatment while also protecting and cooling the skin in the area that is being treated.

laser hair removal bodytonic clinic SE16 London Wax Removal E15Avoid other hair removal methods

Do not wax, tweeze, pluck or epilate the area being treated before or in between your laser hair removal sessions. Shaving the area with a razor is the best method and allows for the most effective results for laser hair removal. Period of 4 weeks

laser hair removal bodytonic clinic SE16 London Razor Shaving E15Shave the treatment area

Cleanly shave the area being treated within 24 hours of your appointment

What to expect during my first Laser Hair Removal session

The treatment will be performed by one of our certified therapists.

  • The area being treated will be cleansed.
  • If the bikini area is being treated, disposable underwear will be offered.
  • A white pencil will be used to mark out the area being treated. This is to allow for neatness and optimum results.
  • Cold EKG gel will be placed over the area to help the slide of the Laser.

Aftercare Advice

laser hair removal bodytonic clinic SE16 London Cream Aloe Vero E15Post treatment care

After the treatment there may be some heat and redness around the treatment area. It is recommended to wear light and loose fitting clothing so as not to irritate the skin further. Aloe Vera gel or cream can be applied to the area to help with any sensitivity or redness.

laser hair removal bodytonic clinic SE16 London Sunlight E15Skin care

Directly after your laser treatment your therapist may use a SPF cream on the skin to help protect the skin. We recommend using a broad spectrum SPF 50 on your skin in between sessions to help protect your skin from any UV damage.

Please refrain from waxing, epilating, plucking or tweezing your hair between treatments. Shaving is the best hair removal method to use as this doesn’t affect the hair follicle.

If you have received facial laser hair removal it is important that you don’t use any cosmetics or make-up on your skin directly after the treatment. This is due to the increased risk of acne development due to open pores from the heat from the laser. It is also recommended to refrain from touching your face, and not to squeeze or pick your skin as this can create long term damage.

laser hair removal bodytonic clinic SE16 London Hot Bath E15Things to avoid

Things to Avoid
It is recommended that for at least 24 hours following your treatment that you avoid any activities that can cause excessive heat. Examples of this include exercise, hot baths, showers or saunas. The reason why they are not recommended is because they can potentially trap heat and bacteria in the hair follicles which can result in skin irritation.

Common areas for laser hair removal

While it is highly effective, laser hair removal is also gentle enough to be used even on sensitive areas of the body. Traditionally, the most common areas of the body treated with laser hair removal are:

Lip

Laser hair removal on the lip area is quick and virtually pain free with the Initia Diode Lynton laser machine. It is an extra small area so would normally take about 5-10 mins. We class this area as the upper lip. A Free patch test and consultation is required a week before your first treatment. This will then usually be followed by 8 sessions 6 weeks apart. It is very important when having any type of facial laser treatment that you don’t expose your face to the full sun for 14 days after treatment and before your next session. This can cause pigmentation in the area.

Chin

With the Initia Diode Lynton laser equipment, chin hair removal is quick and painless. This extra small area would generally take 5-10 minutes to complete. We class this as the main round section of the chin and lower lip. A week before treatment, we will do a free patch test and thorough consultation, followed by eight sessions spaced six weeks apart. It is critical to avoid full sun exposure for 14 days after treatment and before your next session with any facial laser. Pigmentation may occur as a result if too much sun is exposed to the face.

Cheeks

The Initia Diode Lynton laser makes laser hair removal on the cheeks rapid and painless. At bodytonic clinic we class the cheeks as an extra small area. It would generally take 5-10 minutes to complete treatment in this area. This includes any hair on the major cheek area or the men’s upper beard line. We will still conduct a free patch test and consultation one week before treatment, followed by eight sessions spaced six weeks apart. It is critical that you do not expose your face to the full sun for 14 days after treatment and before your next session with any facial laser. This can lead to pigmentation in the affected area.

Neck

At bodytonic clinic we class the neck as a small area, this includes hair under the chin or around the sides, this normally takes up to 15 minutes. For men this will be a tidy up of the whole neck area along the beard line to collarbone. As this is a very sensitive area we use the cooling tip of the Initia Diode laser machine to soothe the area before and after treatment. A free consultation one week before your first treatment is required. This is so that your therapist can map out the exact area that is wanted to be treated and do the free patch test on this area. Following this your first treatment will be one week after, followed by 8 full sessions. Your practitioner will give you all the advice needed to look after the area including advice about keeping your face out of full sun exposure 14 days after the treatment and 14 days before your next session.

Sides of face/hairline

Hair near the hairline, either along the forehead or next to the ear, is classified as a small area at bodytonic and takes about 15 minutes. It is critical to avoid full sun exposure for 14 days after treatment and before your next session with any facial laser. If sun exposure occurs then pigmentation may result. The hairline is a sensitive location, because of this we make sure to use the cooling tip of the Initia laser to cool the area before and after treatment. We’ll do a free consultation and patch test one week before your first session. To get the best results, you’ll need 8 sessions for the area.

Beard

The hair along the lower and upper beard line is considered a small area. For men, this will entail a clean-up along the beard line of the neck and cheeks. We utilise the cooling tip of the Initia laser equipment to cool the area before and after treatment. This is due to the sensitivity of this area. One week prior to the first session, we will conduct a free consultation to assess and map out the specific areas that will be treated and carry out a free patch test. One week later, you’ll have your first treatment, followed by 8 complete sessions. Your practitioner will provide you with all of the information you require to properly care for the region, as well as a reminder not to expose the face to the sun.

BODY

Full Leg (includes feet and toes)

Full leg, including the feet and toes is one of the largest areas we do with laser hair removal. The Lynton Inita Diode laser machine is extremely quick, we allow between 30- 45mins for this extra large area. We carefully map out 10cm x10cm patches on the leg and cover the areas with cooling laser gel to ensure the area is protected and we have a smooth glide. Your practitioner will provide you with all of the information you require about laser hair removal in our free 30 min consultation 1 week prior to your first session. As with all lasers we require no tan on the area and would need a full 4 weeks out of the sun before we could do the patch test.

Half Leg (includes feet and toes)

Half leg can be either the top or bottom half of the leg, including the knee. Toes are part of the lower leg. The Lynton Inita laser machine is very fast, we set aside 30 minutes for this medium-sized area. To guarantee the area is protected and the machine has a smooth glide, we add a cooling laser gel over the leg, where we have mapped out 10 cm x10 cm cubes. In our free 30-minute consultation one week before your first session, your practitioner will present you with all the information you require regarding laser hair removal. We need a full four weeks out of full sun and tanning before we can undertake the patch test, as we do with all laser hair removal areas.

Full Arm (includes hands and fingers)

Full arm including hands and fingers is classified as a medium sized area on our body laser hair removal plan at bodytonic. Each session will last around 30 minutes long. The hands and fingers will be included in the full arm and it will go up to the shoulder socket. A week before the first treatment, we will conduct a comprehensive consultation and recommend 8 sessions for the best outcomes. Due to the fact this area is prone to sun exposure, your practitioner will inquire about your time in the sun at each appointment. It is also important that this area is not exposed to full sun 4 weeks prior to your appointment.

Half Arm (includes hands and fingers)

Half arm area includes either the lower or upper half of the arm. At bodytonic clinic we find that the lower half arm is more popular as it includes the hands and fingers. This will be a small area according to our body laser hair removal plan at bodytonic. It will take about 15 -30 mins per session. We will carry out a full consultation a week prior to the first treatment and recommend 8 sessions to get the best results. As this area can get sun exposure often your practitioner will ask every session about your time in the sun. This area should not be exposed to full sun 4 weeks prior to your appointment.

Underarms

This area is the armpit, it is classified as an extra small area at bodytonic and will take about 15 minutes to laser. We recommend the standard mode on the Lynton Inita machine for the best results. A full consultation will be done by your practitioner in the free laser consultation. They will advise the best course and type of treatment for each client, tailored to your skin type and hair colour. We use a cooling gel on the area before to ensure the best comfort levels are acquired for this delicate area. Underarm laser hair removal can normally be done all year around due to rarely being exposed to the sun.

Nipples/Areola

Hair growth on the nipple is very common. Excess hair growth in the area can sometimes be caused by over plucking or waxing, this can trigger hair growth. Medications and hormonal conditions can also cause this type of hair growth. Book in for a free consultation at bodytonic if this is an area you would like advice on for laser hair removal. At bodytonic clinic this area is classed as an extra small area and takes around 10-15 mins.

Full Back including Shoulders

Bodytonic offers laser hair removal for men and women. We classify the full back as a large area. This includes the entire back, including the shoulders and neck, as desired by the client. Following the free consultation and patch test, the exact areas will be marked with white pencil to make sure it is very neat. Before laser hair removal, the area, like all other places, will need to be shaved roughly 24 hours before. If you are unable to complete this on your own, we will need to extend this appointment beyond the regular 45 minutes.

Back

Laser Hair removal or thinning for men’s back hair is becoming increasingly popular and we offer this at bodytonic. We can do just the back which we class as a medium area, this will be the main part or certain sections of the back that the client would like the hair reduction to occur. The exact areas will be agreed in the free consultation and patch test , they then will be marked in even parts on the day of your first treatment which will be a week after the initial consultation. The area will need to be shaved as will all areas before laser hair removal, about 24hrs before. If you are unable to do this yourself we will need to add more treatment time to this appointment, normally it would take 30 mins.

Full Chest including Neck

Laser hair removal for males is available at Bodytonic clinic.The entire chest, including the shoulders and neck up to the beard line, is classified as a large area. Following the complimentary consultation and patch test, the exact sections will be indicated with a white pencil to ensure that everything is removed precisely as the client would like. The area, like all other places, must be shaved at least 24 hours before laser hair removal. This region will take 45 minutes to complete and will require eight sessions to achieve optimal results.

Chest/ Stomach

The chest is classed as a medium sized area at bodytonic. This could mean treating half of the chest or smaller patches. Following the complimentary in-depth consultation and patch test, the specific parts will be marked with a white pencil to guarantee that everything is removed exactly as the client wishes. Before laser hair removal, the area, like any other, must be shaved 24 hour prior. This area will take 30 minutes to complete, and it will take around eight sessions to receive the best results.

Bikini

Intimate female laser hair removal is offered at Bodytonic. Standard bikini line is classified as a small area and includes the hair on both sides and the top thin strip of your bikini. The area must be shaved at least 24 hours before laser hair removal treatment. This area will take 15 minute to be completed and 8 sessions, 6 weeks apart are required. The Inita Diode laser machine has a cooling tip to make sure that the sensitive area can be treated with minimal discomfort.

Thong

The thong area also described as an extended bikini or g-string region is classed as a medium area at bodytonic. This includes the hair on both sides of your thong line, as well as the hair on the under area close to the bottom and the top strip. The practitioner will ensure that the exact areas for laser sessions are noted during the free consultation. Prior to laser hair removal, the area must be shaven 24 hours prior. This section will take around 30 minutes to complete and will require eight sessions spaced six weeks apart. The inita diode laser machine will be used and will ensure the least painful treatment for this delicate and sensitive area.

Brazilian

Brazilian laser hair removal will target all of the hair underneath and on the side of the bikini area as well as the bottom. A portion of hair will be left at the top, the shape and amount will be discussed with the practitioner during the free consultation to ensure that the specific regions are noted. At bodytonic, this is classed a large area. The area must be shaved 24 hours before laser hair removal. This session will take 30 minutes to complete and will be spread out across eight sessions, six weeks apart. The Inita Diode laser will be used, and it will provide the least painful treatment for this delicate location. It has a cooling itp and two modes to assure the client’s comfort.

Hollywood

The Inita diode laser is used to ensure the client’s comfort, it contains a cooling tip and two modes which gives the practitioner the ability to tailor the treatment options for this sensitive area. All the hair of the bikini region will be removed as well as the bottom. At bodytonic, this is a large area. Prior to laser hair removal, the region must be shaved 24 hours. We will need 30 – 45 minutes per appointment, 8 sessions 6 weeks apart will be required.

Buttocks

The buttocks or bottom area is classed as a small area. This area is also included in a full hollywood or brazilian treatment. We will need 15 mins to complete this area on its own. As with all areas you will need 8 sessions 6 weeks apart. The area needs to be shaved the day before. Your practitioner will discuss the exact treatment areas in your free consultation a week before treatment.

Perianal 

The perianal area, classified as a small area, is the region around the anus. This area is included with a full Hollywood or Brazilian laser hair removal. The area needs to be shaved before being treated. It can take up to 15 minutes to complete the treatment when completed on its own. The usual recommendation is 8 sessions, 6 weeks apart. A patch test is required at least a week before the treatment. The perianal area is a sensitive area, however, with the Initia Diode laser’s iced tip this enables the practitioner to cool down the area as much as is needed to make for a more comfortable treatment.

Eyebrows and eyelids cannot be done!

The eyelids and eyebrows are the only parts of the body that should not be laser-treated to eliminate unwanted hair. The reason for this is that the laser has the potential to cause eye injury. In fact, simply to be safe, you will be offered eye protection for your hair removal treatments on any other body part. We do not offer laser hair removal at bodytonic on these delicate eye areas.

FAQ’s

Laser hair removal works by using a laser machine. The device emits light, which is then transformed into heat energy. The heat energy produced damages the hair follicle, which then helps reduce hair regrowth.

During regular laser hair removal treatments, you may experience a sensation similar to that of a hot flick of an elastic band. You will feel little to no sensation with the virtually pain-free Initia therapy. When in MOTION mode, the built-in IceTip technology provides even greater comfort for clients, particularly when treating areas with dense and black hair. For more comfortable treatments, this technology can achieve temperatures of -8°C.
The number of sessions necessary varies with each client and is determined by a variety of factors. As a general rule, each location should receive a series of treatments. Normally between 6-12 sessions, this is dependent on skin and hair type.

Only a few treatments are required to notice results. For optimal outcomes, a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 treatments are recommended. However this is dependent on hair and skin type.

All skin types can benefit from Initia Diode Laser technology. To determine whether the treatment will be effective for you, we recommend booking in for a patch test and consultation with your therapist. For grey or white hair unfortunately treatment is not possible. This is due to the lack of pigment in grey or white hair.
Yes, we can treat almost every part of the body except the brows. This is because they are too close to the eyes. We are also unable to treat the bottom area. Tattooed areas on the skin are also areas that cannot be treated by laser. Laser hair removal is attracted to the pigment within your hair follicle, deep in the layers of the skin. When laser hair removal is performed over a tattoo, the laser cannot distinguish between the pigment in your hair follicle or the pigment in the ink – and can cause the pigment of your tattoo to scatter, potentially leading to burns, blisters or skin damage. In some instances, it can also reduce the colour in the tattoo.

Laser Hair Removal is a treatment that is completed in a short period of time. The time it takes to treat a certain region is determined by its size. This can take anywhere from 5 minutes for the upper lip to 35 minutes for the full legs.

Although there are few contraindications, we will review your medical history during the in depth consultation. Photosensitizing medications, pregnancy, and breast-feeding are the most prevalent therapeutic obstacles to laser hair removal.

Before treatment you should refrain from sunbathing and use self-tanners.
We recommend no sun exposure for 4-6 weeks prior to your appointments.
We advise you to arrive at your first appointment (patch test) with the treatment area cleaned and not shaved, without makeup, product or deodorant.
For your second appointment the treated area needs to be shaved within 24h before having the session.
For at least 24 hours following the treatment, we always recommend avoiding activities that cause excessive heat.
Exercise, hot baths, showers, or saunas are not recommended 24 hours after treatment since they might trap heat and bacteria in the hair follicles, causing irritation.
Following your hair removal treatment, we also recommend wearing loose, light clothing.
In between treatments, we always recommend wearing a broad-spectrum SPF 50 to protect your skin from UV damage and sun exposure.
Refrain from waxing, plucking, or epilating the hair between treatments. Shaving between treatments is absolutely fine.
There are many types of laser hair removal machines. At the bodytonic clinic we use Lynton Laser. Lynton is a British manufacturer associated with Manchester University. This means years of study and science have gone into the making of these Lasers.

There are many different types of lasers with different powers, so picking which one to use is crucial if you want to get good results. To be effective, a laser’s power must be well-made. When less energy is used, the hair follicle is just temporarily weakened, not destroyed, over the course of the therapy. At the bodytonic clinic we use the INITIA diode laser. The Diode laser is a high-powered laser and is one of the strongest and safest lasers on the market.

You can not normally get hair removal on the NHS as it is purely a cosmetic procedure.
We suggest that laser hair removal can permanently reduce hair but not remove it fully. Each treatment should result in a ten to twenty percent reduction in hair growth. During treatment most of the melanin in the hair is eliminated, the hairs that regenerate are usually finer and less noticeable. This means you may still have some light hair remaining.
The reason why hair can grow back after laser is primarily due to the growth cycle of the hair. The laser will harm hairs that are in their anagen (active) phase of hair growth. The hairs in the catagen, or latent stage, will not be harmed by the treatment and will grow when the treatment is finished. Laser treatment can also cause hair follicles to go dormant rather than kill them.
A low-energy light beam is focused on individual hair follicles beneath the epidermis of the skin using the laser employed during the therapy. This energy absorbs melanin (the pigment that gives hair its colour) and warms up the follicle, causing it to break down. Because each hair’s growth cycle is unique, some hair will be spared from laser damage and will continue to grow.
To achieve a considerable reduction of hair, at least six cycles of treatment are required, with each session occurring every four to six weeks. Even so, some hair may sprout, necessitating maintenance treatments every six to twelve months. The rate at which hair regrows varies from person to person, with many factors influencing the rate of regrowth. This includes skin tone, hair colour, and the location of the tattoo and hormonal changes through life.

Despite the fact that laser hair removal employs light energy, no UV radiation is used. Hair follicles are targeted with wavelengths that are longer and less energetic. Laser hair removal will not increase your risk of skin cancer because there is no chance of damaging the genetic material in your cells.
Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light has been linked to the development of skin cancer. Sunlight and some artificial light sources, such as tanning beds, expose us to ultraviolet radiation. It’s a high-energy wavelength that’s visible to the naked eye but not to the human eye.
UV light has such a strong wavelength that it can harm our cells. It is possible for skin cells to become malignant if the wrong section of their DNA is destroyed. This is frequently the result of several years of exposure to sunshine or other sources of UV. Many of the illnesses are caused by the same type of harm. Also age-related indications, like wrinkles, are caused by the same type of damage.

Laser is a faster more permanent form of hair removal. It will reduce the hair in fewer sessions whereas waxing will take a number of years to have the same effect. It will also help with clients who suffer from ingrown hairs due to the weakening of the hair.
Waxing and laser are different hair removal techniques; neither one is better than the other but are suited to different clients who have slightly different needs.
Laser hair removal varies in cost from location to location. Please see our pricing table for information on costs.
Bodytonic clinic is based in canada water, central London. We offer laser hair removal treatments using the latest laser hair removal technology.
Laser hair removal can be effectively used anywhere on the body apart from around the eyes. This is due to potential injury to the eyes from the laser.
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment that can be used anywhere on the body. Common areas to be treated are the legs, underarm, bikini, chest, back, upper lip and chin.

On darker skin types there is a higher amount of melanin in the skin which gives it the colour.With some Laser machines, the laser cannot easily differentiate between the skin and the hair due to the melanin. With our INITIA diode machine we can safely treat all skin types using the motion mode which gives a fast and nearly pain free treatment by sending out a lower wave of heat. Due to darker skin and the low the energy emitted it means extra sessions may be required to have a successful treatment

For some clients laser hair removal is unfortunately not as effective as in others. This can be due to different factors, from poor or lack of pigmentation inside the hair or due to hormonal conditions. All of these possible contraindications will be discussed during the initial consultation and patch test and only after a certain number of treatments can we see if this treatment is unsuccessful.

Keratin buildup causes keratosis pilaris, which is a rigid protein that defends the skin from dangerous chemicals and infection. Keratin causes rough, bumpy skin areas by blocking the opening of hair follicles. Because laser hair removal eliminates hair follicles, it also prevents keratin from clogging the follicle and producing the lumps. After receiving laser hair removal treatments in the same location, those with keratosis pilaris, also known as”chicken skin” experienced a significant change in the texture of their skin.
PCOS is a condition that alters the way a woman’s ovaries function. Irregular periods, increased amounts of ‘male’ hormones, increased facial or body hair are all symptoms of PCOS.Due to this condition being caused by high amounts of androgen, a male hormone, laser hair removal is not contraindicated, and the client can get results. However, because of the high level of androgen, the client may require additional maintenance treatments.
Laser hair removal therapy works by directing the light energy from the laser onto the hair follicle. The light energy from the laser converts into heat energy and destroys the hair follicle at the root. This affects the ability of the follicle to grow hair, resulting in reduced ingrown hairs.
Areas of the skin that are covered with tattoos are unfortunately not able to be treated with laser hair removal technology. Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment within the hair follicle. When laser hair removal treatment is carried out on tattooed skin the laser is not able to distinguish between the pigment in the ink and the pigment in the hair follicle. This can result in scattered and reduced color in the tattoo, as well as potentially causing blisters, burns or damage to the skin.
Despite being a safe process, laser hair removal can have negative side effects, such as unwanted colour changes on the skin . Those who do not avoid sun exposure before or after treatment, as well as those with darker skin, are most affected by skin lightening. Vitiligo patients will not be able to receive laser treatment due to the skin already being sensitive to pigmentation issues.
Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment within the hair follicle. When laser hair removal is used over a tattooed area of skin it cannot distinguish between the pigment in the skin and the pigment in the ink of the tattoo. This can lead to a reduced and scattered colour of the tattoo. It is therefore not appropriate to use laser hair removal over tattooed areas of skin.
Laser hair removal can help to reduce keratosis pilaris. It does this by reducing the blood supply to the hair and follicle. In return this results in a reduction in the size and amount of bumps of the skin by. This can lead to a smooth appearance of Keratosis Pilaris

Laser hair removal is a virtually painless aesthetic technique that removes unwanted hair with the use of a laser. The laser emits light energy that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair throughout the treatment. Melanin is a pigment found in your hair that determines its colour. Heat is created when the laser’s light energy is converted to heat. The heat created destroys the hair follicles, causing future hair regeneration to be delayed.

There is no evidence to suggest that laser hair removal can cause cancer. Skin cancer is associated with exposure to UV light. UV Light is very potent and can damage the genetic makeup of a cell. The light energy used in laser hair removal is not UV light. It is less energetic and has much longer wavelengths than UV light. The longer wavelengths mean there is no risk of the light energy damaging the genetic material inside the cell.
In very rare cases laser hair removal can cause hair to re-grow back thicker or darker. This is called paradoxical hypertrichosis and the cause for this is unknown.

These treatments use a different laser that uses a blue light at a specific wavelength, that targets and kills the bacteria in the pores of the skin. Laser hair removal on the face can actually temporarily increase facial acne due to the increased heat applied to the skin and the potential for increased bacteria forming. It is therefore important to follow post treatment advice of not using cosmetics or makeup on the skin, don’t touch the skin after treatment and don’t do any activities that might causes you to sweat excessively,
