frequently asked questions

WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?

PRIOR TO TREATMENT, YOU WILL HAVE COME IN FOR A FREE PATCH TEST AND CONSULTATION. THIS CAN BE BOOKED HERE.

YOU WILL ARRIVE HAVING SHAVED 24 HOURS PRIOR TO THE SESSION. THE SHAVED AREA WILL BE CLEANSED, MARKED UP, WITH COOLING GEL APPLIED. NOW YOU ARE READY FOR THE LASER TO BEGIN!

DOES IT HURT?

MOST CLIENTS SAY THAT IT FEELS LIKE WARM PIN-PRICKS, WHERE AS SOME CLIENTS DON'T FEEL ANYTHING AT ALL. EACH TREATMENT AREA TAKES MINUTES TO COMPLETE, SO THE WHOLE PROCESS IS OVER REALLY QUICKLY!

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IPL AND LASER?

IPL MACHINES ARE CHEAPER TO BUY, MORE COMMONLY USED AND ADVERTISED AS 'LASER'. HOWEVER BEWARE, IPL REQUIRES A LOT MORE SESSIONS AND IS LESS EFFECTIVE HAIR REDUCTION. IPL ALSO CANNOT TREAT DARKER SKIN TONES, UNLIKE LASER DIODE.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO ACHIEVE QUICKER, LONG-LASTING RESULTS, THE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL IS A BETTER OPTION FOR YOU.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE?

ONLY IF PERFORMED BY A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN. REBECCA IS A VTCT LEVEL TECHNICIAN, WHICH IS THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF CERTIFICATION CURRENTLY AVAILABLE.

WHAT MUST I DO AFTER GETTING LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING SESSION, AVOID SUN EXPOSURE, BODY LOTIONS, EXERCISE AND TIGHT-FITTED CLOTHING. ANYTHING THAT CAN IRRITATE THE TREATED SKIN.

MOST PEOPLE CAN CARRY ON WITH THEIR USUAL DAILY ACTIVITIES. 

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

RESULTS CAN VARY DEPENDING ON THE CLIENT. MOST PEOPLE SEE RESULTS FOLLOWING 1-2 SESSIONS. WITH HAIR GROWING BACK FINER AND NO HAIR GROWING BACK AT ALL IN SOME AREAS. 

HOW LONG DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL LAST?

LASER HAIR REMOVAL CAN LAST YEARS. YEARLY MAINTENANCE SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED TO KEEP HAIRS AT BAY.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

YOU MAY EXPERIENCE SOME MINOR REDNESS OR ITCHING THAT CAN LAST 1-3 DAYS. YOU SHOULD APPLY SOME ALOE VERA TO HELP THIS.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I VISIT?
