Laser Hair Removal is definitely the most popular laser procedure in the world. It has been around for over 20 years and there have been millions of treatments performed worldwide.
It’s also a great treatment option for people suffering from medical conditions that result in excessive hair.
Laser Hair Removal uses laser technology to specifically target the hair root to destroy it stopping it from growing back again.
It works by beaming a highly concentrated light into hair follicles, when this happens, pigment in the follicles absorb the light and this destroys the hair.
Yes, this is because hairs grow in a cycle with three phases. When the hair is in the growing or anagen phase, it has a strong root and has a lot of pigment associated at the root (Perifollicular melanin). If you pluck a hair out in this phase you can see the larger darker root. These hairs are perfect as they attract the laser and absorb the energy. This, in turn, makes the whole root structure get hot and destroys or disables the structure so hairs cannot regrow.
When we use the laser hairs in the other stages of growth the results are less intense. In addition to this, hairs can go into a rest period for different periods of time, therefore, we can never treat them all in one go and a course of treatments will effectively catch them all at the right stage.
We can treat all the areas of the body and face. Many people often ask if it’s possible to undergo two areas of the body at once, the simple answer is yes.
Yes, your consultation will allow us to select the right laser setting for your skin type. We use this to achieve the best results possible. Treatment frequency depends on which area we are treating and the type of hair. During your consultation, you will also have a patch test.
We use 755nm Alexandrite laser for lighter skin types and NdYAG 1064nm for darker skins the Duetto enables us to mix the two wavelengths to give the safest most effective treatment on all skin types.
The heat produced by the laser damages the hairs at the root, preventing regrowth. We protect skin from heat damage by a cooling gel applied directly to the skin and by the cooling tip on the handpiece of the laser.
During your consultation, we will look closely to make sure you’re eligible for the treatment. Your practitioner will adjust the laser to suit your hair and skin type. Our nurses tailor the laser settings to the individual to get the best results.
We use different wavelengths of light to treat patients with different skin colours. As the lasers target for hair removal is the melanin, or pigment in each hair we need to deliver enough laser energy to kill the hair. In darker skins, we have the complication that melanin is present in the skin in larger quantities. We use shorter or longer wavelengths to target the hairs at different depths.
When the skin becomes tanned- no matter what the natural skin tone is, it has melanin in its upper layers. This melanin competes for the laser’s energy and makes the skin hotter than the hair. In some cases, the skin can get too hot and therefore burn, as a result, we won’t treat tanned skin.
The use of topical products adds pigment to the upper layers of the skin. This will cause the laser energy to be absorbed at the surface of the skin and can result in burns and blisters.
We do not treat the hairs that appear during/ post pregnancy as it tends to be hormonal and will disappear without intervention. Lasers are not used during pregnancy, we have no clinical trials that can assure us of the safety, therefore, we do not treat women who are pregnant.
With so many different types of hair to consider it can be difficult to get the correct treatment. This can result in limitations for some clinics as they only have one wavelength laser and in this case, no one parameter fits all.
Yes. Anyone interested in treatment for actinic keratosis will need a consultation. Our expert consultant dermatologists will need to look closely at your condition. It’s important that they confirm your diagnosis and send off any biopsies (if needed).
We will also need to discuss your medical history and determine which treatment will be the best treatment option for your condition.
