Meet Hannah…

Medical conditions such as Viral Encephalitis are challenging enough. Add to that the possible side effects that can come with some of the medications required to treat the issue – well, it just becomes that much harder. In Hannah’s case, with the help of simple, but effective, Laser Hair removal treatments, she has been able to put some of these additional challenges behind her.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary Syndrom (PCOS) treatments can also include medications that can cause unwanted hair growth. Aside from the pain and discomfort of the medical issue itself, sufferers are also subjected to changes to their bodies and face that they have no control over. One of our clients came to us with exactly this issue and we have been privileged to have helped significantly reduce her unwanted facial hair.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Laser hair removal is an effective, permanent hair reduction treatment, which eradicates hair growth by 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 results in long-lasting reduction in the hair growth of the treated area. Laser hair removal results 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 permanent 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 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.

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.

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