Laser Hair Removal

What Is Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated beams of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair. The laser targets the pigment in the hair follicles, which creates heat  and eliminates the follicles to inhibit future hair growth. Medical grade laser is used, Candela Gentlemax pro plus is designed to treat both lighter and darker skin. Our medical grade Laser Hair Removal technology is fast, safe, cost-effective, reliable provides amazing permanent hair reduction.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?

With each session, hair is reduced. We recommend an initial course of 8-12 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart (depending on area and skin type)

What Does It Feel Like?

During laser hair removal, you may feel a sensation often described as a mild stinging or snapping feeling, similar to the flick of a rubber band against the skin. Some areas may be more sensitive than others, but discomfort is typically minimal and well-tolerated by most individuals. Advanced laser systems may incorporate cooling mechanisms to help alleviate any discomfort during the treatment. Overall, sensations vary from person to person, but many find the procedure manageable and relatively comfortable.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works by targeting the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles with concentrated light energy. The pigment absorbs the light, which then converts to heat and damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth. The surrounding skin remains unharmed because the laser selectively targets the darker hair follicles while leaving the lighter skin untouched. Over multiple treatment sessions, this process reduces hair growth, leading to long-lasting hair reduction or even permanent hair removal in some cases.

•⁠  ⁠Ensure the treatment area is cleanly shaved (24 hours prior)
•⁠  ⁠Avoid applying any deodorants, moisturisers or oils to the treatment area
•⁠  ⁠Avoid the application of Vitamin A/Retinol or active products to the treatment area. 
•⁠  ⁠Avoid direct sun exposure to the treatment area (2 weeks prior and post your treatment) 
•⁠  ⁠Avoid the application of fake tan and tanning products such as self-tanning moisturiser to the treatment area (2 weeks prior)
•⁠  ⁠Avoid the use of solariums (2 weeks prior)
•⁠  ⁠Avoid skin treatments such as skin needling, chemical peels (2 weeks prior), 
•⁠  ⁠Avoid Resurfacing treatments (4 weeks prior)

What To Expect

Immediate Effects: You may experience some redness and swelling in the treated area, which typically subsides within a few hours to a day.

 

Hair Shedding: Treated hairs may appear to grow as usual for a week or two before shedding. This is a normal part of the hair removal process as the treated follicles are expelled from the skin.

Delayed Hair Growth: Over the following weeks, you'll notice a gradual reduction in hair growth as the treated follicles become inactive. It may take multiple sessions to achieve desired results, as hair grows in cycles and not all follicles are affected at once.

Sensitivity: Treated skin may be temporarily sensitive to touch or warm water, but any discomfort is usually mild and short-lived.

Optimal Results: For best results, follow the recommended treatment schedule provided by your skincare professional at Innskin. With each session, you'll notice further reduction in hair growth and smoother skin.

Long-term Benefits: Laser hair removal offers long-lasting hair reduction or even permanent hair removal in some cases, providing a convenient and effective solution for unwanted hair.
