How can I prepare?

We cannot treat you if you have had sun exposure within two weeks of your laser hair removal treatment and you must skip the spray tan; laser will sizzle any pigment on your skin including spray tanning products. We can arrange your treatment on the day of your consultation, so shave the night before, but do not use wax or depilatory creams for two weeks prior to treatment. Finally we cannot treat you if you have had the sun-tanning Vitamin A injections within the last six months.

First appointment:

Before your first treatment you will need a short 15 minute consultation with one of our technicians. This is needed to assess your skin and hair type, assess your suitability for treatment and discuss how to prep your skin for the best possible result.

If you require a treatment on the day of your consultation, this can usually be arranged too.

Do not wax or use depilatory creams beforehand, but you should shave the night before.

What should I do post-treatment?

During the next month, the hair will fall out gradually. The timing of your treatments dramatically effects the outcome due to hair growth patterns, thus we suggest you book a course of laser hair removal treatments rather than sporadic appointments. Treatments should be every 4-6 weeks but your therapist will advise you according to your hair and skin type.

Treated areas may appear “sunburnt” after treatment; Institut Laser Aid (post laser treatment) and cold compresses will ease discomfort and swelling. Avoid applying makeup to the area in the unlikely event of blistering and stay out of the sun, using sunscreen on the treated area to prevent discoloration or sunburn. Remember your skin will be sensitive to the sun for 48 hours after treatment.

Getting the best results

Do not wax or use depilatory creams for 2 weeks before your laser hair removal treatment. You can shave up to the day before your treatment. Timing of your treatments will dramatically effect the outcome, so we recommend that you book a course of treatments rather than coming in ad hoc.

What type of pigmentation is treated?

Types of pigmentation we can treat include:

  • Freckles
  • Melasma/Chloasma
  • General unevenness of skin colour (brown patches, reddish spots/acne scars)
  • Keratosis
  • Post trauma increase in pigmentation
  • Lentigines
  • Liver spots/age spots
  • Birthmarks

Using laser technology, we can reverse the classic signs of sun damage, and also correct some of the damage to the deeper layers of the skin – the collagen and elastin layers – where many of the features of aging, sun damaged skin originate.

Our skilled laser operators are able to adjust their treatment to obtain a response in the relevant area for a walk-in walk-out treatment with no downtime.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on the degree of sun damage you will generally need three to six treatments at two to four weekly intervals.

How does it work?

Laser pigmentation removal works by targeting the pigmentation in the skin and encouraging the body’s natural healing process to correct the problem area. Over time the pigmentation spot will fade back to normal skin colouration.
