Laser Hair Removal is a great option for those with a lower pain threshold, as there is minimal pain involved in the treatment. Some customers may describe a sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin, but this varies depending on the sensitivity of the treatment area. You may feel some discomfort after the procedure, similar to a mild sunburn, however this will ease with time. Our team at Advanced Skin Clinics are dedicated to ensuring our clients are comfortable, and will be attentive to any concerns you have during the treatment.
The amount of treatments depends on both your skin and hair type, and you will be advised of this during your appointment. Generally, we require treatments between 4-6 week intervals. In order to achieve permanent hair removal, a minimum of 10 sessions are required.
Unfortunately, we cannot treat areas with a tattoo. The laser cannot differentiate between the pigmentation of your hair follicle or the pigment in the ink, and can cause burns, blisters or skin damage to the area.
If you are on any medication that may cause skin sensitivity, it is best speak to medical professional before receiving your treatment. Some medications to be aware of include: Anti-depressants, Antibiotics and topical Vitamin A.
We are dedicated to providing affordable and effective cosmetic treatments to make our clients look and feel great. Contact our staff today to take the next step in improving your confidence!
