What is laser hair removal and does it work?

Laser hair removal has quickly become the main effective method for getting rid of unwanted body and facial hair forever. But it’s common for our clients and people thinking about laser hair removal, to have questions and concerns before undergoing the treatment. We’ve compiled a list of our most asked questions at The Laser Club.


1. What is Laser Hair Removal and how does it work?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to target and remove hair follicles. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the melanin, which is the pigment in the hair, leading to the destruction of the hair follicle through heat.

2. Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Yes, laser hair removal is safe when performed by a trained and licensed professional like we have here at The Laser Club. The risk of side effects is very minimal. However, it’s crucial to choose a reputable clinic like us at The Laser Club and follow pre- and post-treatment care instructions that will be given during your consultation and following your first session.

3. Does Laser Hair Removal Work on All Skin Types?

At The Laser Club, yes! We use the Primelase machine, which is the strongest laser hair removal machine in the world. Not only this but with its advanced technology we’re able to treat all skin types. Our machine is unique as it uses 4 different types of wavelengths unlike other machines which typically uses 2 to 3 wavelengths.

You may experience some normal side effects after your treatment, these include temporary redness, swelling, and skin irritation. These typically subside within a few hours to a few days after your appointment, this can be treated by applying some aloe vera gel to the area.

9. What Precautions Should I Take Before Treatment?

Before laser hair removal, avoid sun exposure and tanning, as well as waxing or plucking for several weeks. Shave the treatment area between 2-24 hours before your appointment.
