Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Laser hair removal is a treatment that can help with effective, permanent hair reduction, by helping to eradicate hair growth through targeting either the root of the hair or the blood flow to the root, depending on your skin tone. Once a hair follicle has been successfully treated, hair will no longer grow from it.

When performed by a qualified laser technician, laser hair removal is safe, comfortable, and can be used to stop hair growth anywhere on the body.

Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair root or blood supply using a concentrated beam of light. This light is absorbed by pigment, damaging the follicle and rendering it incapable of growing hair. This can result in long-lasting reduction in the hair growth of the treated area. Laser hair removal can result in long-term hair-free skin… in some people, hair never returns (though everyone is different, and results vary).

Some patients find laser hair removal uncomfortable, but not ‘painful’. The lasers we use at The Cosmetic Clinic are among the latest and best in the industry and have a feature which blows cold air onto the area being treated to reduce discomfort. Following your treatment your skin may be a little red, like a mild sunburn, but this should pass quickly. Your laser technician will advise you on the best ways to reduce this.

Patients report that compared to the pain of waxing, laser’s a breeze… with the added bonus of effective results!

Laser hair removal targets hair during growth phases and hair grows in ‘cycles’ so most clients require between six treatments to twelve treatments, timed 4-6 weeks apart to help achieve the desired, hair free result. However, most patients notice hair growth is finer from the first treatment.

Every patient is different, and your laser technician will be able to advise you on the best treatment course for your needs. Individual results may vary.

Treatments are performed between 4-6 weeks apart to ensure each targets a new cycle of hair growth. Because between six to twelve treatments are usually needed for an area to be completely free of hair growth, laser is not the quickest hair removal treatment – but it IS the only one that offers permanent hair reduction.

Everyone is different, and many clients see a significant reduction in hair growth from the first treatment. Individual results may vary.

At The Cosmetic Clinic treatments are performed using industry-leading laser technology. We have different lasers available and can offer treatments to help a huge range of skin tone and hair colours, though unfortunately we are unable to treat red, white or grey hair.
