Is laser hair removal permanent and is it safe?


Whether you are looking to ditch the razor or keen to forgo the pain of waxing, laser hair removal could be the solution that you’ve been looking for. In this article we’re going to take a look at laser hair removal and answer some of the most common questions that we get asked, namely: how does it work, is it permanent, and is it safe? While for many women shaving and waxing is a normal part of life, many others are looking for a safe alternative that delivers long-lasting results. So, let’s dive in and provide you with answers to the questions that you want to know.

How does laser hair removal work?

For many people the first question that springs to mind is what is laser hair removal and how does it work? Laser hair removal is a cosmetic beauty procedure that uses the light from a high-powered laser to target the pigments in individual hairs. The light heats and destroys hair follicles which are in the skin, disrupting hair growth.

At Laser Club we use state of the art SMARTDiode laser machines which use a very precise laser beam with a narrow spectrum. Our laser machine utilises intelligent software and combines 3 different wavelengths to help deliver exceptional results for all skin types.

Laser hair removal can be used to treat a wide range of areas including the chest, back, legs, underarms, bikini line and even sensitive areas such as the face and lady’s nipple area. Treatments are carried out in multiple sessions as hairs need to be targeted during an active growth phase, therefore 6 sessions are recommended.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Before undergoing any form of cosmetic treatment it’s important to understand the risks involved. Laser hair removal is a completely safe, non-invasive therapy when carried out by trained professionals such as the team here at Laser Club. As with other cosmetic treatments there is the occasional risk of side effects such as pain and discomfort as well as the possibility of red skin. Our ice-cooling laser guns also significantly help to reduce pain and discomfort commonly associated with laser treatment.

Prior to any treatment we’ll always carry out a full consultation and patch test. During this we will check your medical history to ensure that it is safe for you to receive treatment. We’ll discuss the areas that you are looking to target and agree on the best course of action for you. Prior to any treatment plan starting we’ll also conduct a patch test to make sure you do not have a reaction to the treatment.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

By using the latest technology our laser hair removal treatment produces results that last up to two times longer than standard laser hair removal treatment. While laser hair removal will not permanently remove all hair, it will significantly reduce hair growth and provide long-lasting results. Typically, our clients see 40-70% reduction in hair after just two session and up to 95% reduction after a course of 6 sessions.

In order to keep unwanted hair at bay we recommend yearly top-up sessions, but you will see a permanent change after your initial course of 6 treatments. Find out more about our laser hair removal in Manchester or Leeds today, or book an appointment today.
