Why you’ll love laser hair removal

Permanent results

Laser hair removal can permanently remove up to 90% of hair on a treatment area. Remaining hairs are unlikely to appear all at once, since hair grows in cycles.

Smoother skin

Laser hair removal can also improve other ‘bumpy skin’ issues such as folliculitis, ingrown hairs, razor burn and keratosis pilaris.*

Minimal downtime

When done properly, laser hair removal results in little to no downtime. Patients can go back to most normal activities immediately.**

*For more information on the potential of laser hair removal to treat keratosis pilaris, please see this article.
**Avoiding sun exposure and wearing sunscreen is required to prevent hyperpigmentation after laser hair removal. Patients may need to wait a few days before resuming some activities, such as swimming or hot showers.

How does laser hair removal work?

Apply heat energy

Pigments in the hair absorb laser light energy, sending it down to its root. Intense heat destroys the follicle it is attached to.

Catch the ‘anagen’ phase

How laser hair removal works diagram - laser catches hairs in anagen growth phase

Hairs grow in cycles. They are only attached to the root during the anagen stage. This is when the laser can destroy follicles.

Repeat treatments

Follicles with hairs that were formerly in catagen or telogen phase can be destroyed in subsequent laser sessions. Destroyed follicles can’t regrow hair.

What type of laser do you use for permanent hair reduction in Surrey?

Currently, we use the Clarity™, by Lutronic, which is a highly effective laser for fast, effective and relatively pain-free hair follicle destruction. It combines the Alexandrite and Nd:Yag lasers in one machine. This allows for treatments on various skin tones.

However, you may be asking: “what is the best type of laser for hair removal?”

We explain that in detail, here.

Can you do laser hair removal on all skin tones and hair colours?

We can treat most types of hair on most skin tones.

Laser hair removal is most effective with dark hair on light skin. However, dark hair on darker skin tones can still be treated, if done carefully.

No laser hair removal will work on white, blonde or red hair.

The finer the hair, the less likely the laser will work to its maximum potential.

We can not perform laser hair removal on tattooed or tanned skin.

How many treatments does laser hair removal take to see results?

Some people achieve their best results with laser hair removal in as little as 4 to 6 treatments. Others need 10 or more treatments.

Each patient will respond differently to their hair removal sessions. This is because of a few factors, which are:

  • The density of hair follicles (more hair can mean more sessions are needed)
  • The thickness of hair (thicker hair naturally has more melanin, which absorbs more heat, and is thus destroyed more easily)
  • The depth at which hair follicles are located in the skin (the further the light needs to travel can affect its temperature hold, which needs to stay high long enough to be effective)
  • The hair’s growth cycle (hair follicles can only be affected if they are in the anagen growth phase, explained above)

Since no one can predict how many hairs are in the anagen phase at any given time, it is impossible to say with certainty how many laser hair removal sessions each patient requires.

IMPORTANT: more treatments will be required for those who wax or pluck hairs in between laser hair removal sessions. This is because waxing and plucking pulls hair from the root. The root is needed for laser hair removal to work. Shaving does not affect laser hair removal results.

Is there downtime after laser hair removal?

There is usually no downtime with laser hair removal. However, to avoid side effects, patients need to follow before and after care instructions.

Before treatments, you will be asked to avoid:

  • Sun exposure (before and after treatments)
  • Tanning products

For a short period after treatment sessions, you may be asked to avoid:

  • Shaving
  • Using retinoids or exfoliants on the treatment area
  • Swimming

Are there side effects with laser hair removal?

Patients may experience mild redness or swelling after laser hair removal. However, this should go away within 2 to 7 days, in most cases.

Long term side effects from laser hair removal are rare, if the treatment is done properly and safely, and if the patient follows before and after care instructions.

Laser hair removal can result in post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This happens when the laser energy burns the skin. It is more common in skin of colour, or skin that tans easily.

To prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, the skin is cooled during and after treatments. Patients are also asked to avoid sun exposure, or tanning products, to prevent this side effect.

Being a doctor-run clinic, we are able to help you with treatments for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, should you experience any with laser hair removal.
