Frequently Asked Questions

How often will I need a treatment?

It’s different on each area being treated. Your appointments will range from every 4 weeks to every 8 weeks as hair on different parts of the body have different growth rates. The “average” is 8 sessions.

What is the consultation for?

This is to check whether you are suitable for the treatment and determine the skin type.

A patch test will be carried out to check there are no adverse effects when the full treatment is being carried out.

You need to have at least 1mm of hair present at this time.

Can I shave between treatments?

Absolutely! You can shave frequently between sessions. In fact, i need you to be freshly shaved for each session.

I have a tan, can I still have a treatment?

No, please leave 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after being in the sun

How long does each treatment take?

Each treatment time would vary depending on the area you are having treated. However, a standard guide would be that it takes the same time to treat an area with laser and IPL as it would take for you to get the area waxed meaning it is very quick and handy to get done on your lunch break or after work.

Does hair grow back once it has been removed?

As for all methods of permanent hair removal, it works by killing the hair growth from an individual follicle. However, certain hormonal changes, medication or disorders can stimulate hair growth, but this would be from a new follicle showing new hair growth.

Will I need maintenance sessions?

Yes. As hair growth can be stimulated by hormonal changes, medication etc. it is always possible for new hair follicles to be stimulated resulting in new hair growth. How many sessions will vary from person to person depending on the factors affecting their hair growth, but its not unusual to expect to need anything from a couple of maintenance sessions per year to every 2 years.

Can I shave between treatments?

Hair reduction will begin immediately after your first treatment, however it will become noticeable after your third treatment.  Hair follicles that have been destroyed by the machine will not regrow, however a few hairs whose growth cycle did not match your treatment sessions may reappear and these are easily treated in short single sessions…. If again, you are lucky enough to catch them at the correct stage.

Why multiple treatments?

Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth), Catagen (regression) and Telogen (resting, not growing). Hair removal only affects the Anagen stage (actively growing hair).  Approximately 20% of hair is removed with each treatment. A few treatments are therefore required for the treatment area to be hair free.

What do I need to do for my hair removal treatment?

You need to have shaved the entire area to be treated 48 hours before (24 if you have a very fast hair growth. You need to have no visible hair on the skin.

Its recommended that you stop waxing, threading or plucking for at least 6 weeks before your first treatment. There needs to hair to be in a certain growth stage for effective treatment and this is why this is very important. If you wax or pluck a hair, the hair is completely removed from the follicle and disrupts the hair growth system we need for effective permanent hair removal. i advise you to wait 6 to 8 weeks after waxing or plucking before having IPL or Laser. Shaving is perfectly fine between treatments.

  • Be free from artificial fake tan.
  • Avoid the sun for 72 hours before a treatment to avoid too much heat in the area as the treatment would not be possible if there was any sunburn present.
  • If anything changes in your consultation form (e.g medication) between the initial consultation or between each appointment then please let me know.
