FAQs on Laser Hair Removal

I have ingrown hair on my face, legs, bikini area and back. Would laser help?2018-09-01T13:37:16+00:00

Absolutely. Even after one treatment, you will notice that most of your ingrown hair have been terminated. Within a few weeks, the area will be smooth.

I want finer and less hair rather than a full removal?2018-08-16T14:26:11+00:00

Yes, that is possible. We can customise your treatment according to your needs and expectations.

Is Laser Hair Removal for all hair types?2018-08-16T14:25:57+00:00

Laser Hair Removal works best on thick, black hair and does not work on white, grey or light blonde hair follicles. Also, women with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) may experience poor results unless they receive medical support along with the laser treatment.

Is there hair growth between sessions?2018-08-16T14:25:38+00:00

The treated area is cleared of most of the existing hair during the treatment, while the rest of the treated hair sheds in two weeks leaving the area smooth and clean. Depending on the area, the skin remains clean and smooth for around 6 to 8 weeks in total, starting from the treatment date. By repeating the sessions on time (once the hair appears), the area will remain hair-free throughout the entire procedure.

How long do I have to wait between each session?2018-08-16T14:25:23+00:00

We like to do the initial sessions 4-6 weeks apart depending on what area it is, to catch the majority of the hair in its growth cycle and burn it. The later sessions are planned according to the new hair growth. This time frame varies from person to person as well as from area to area.

How many sessions does it take to remove the hair completely?2018-08-16T14:25:01+00:00

Most people need 6 to 8 treatments. The requirement varies from person to person based on age, gender and hair colour. In some areas, such as the legs, face, chest, arms and underarms the results are achieved faster. The back area of men is usually more challenging and may take a few extra treatments.

What are the risks or possible side effects involved?2018-09-01T13:38:23+00:00

You will not experience any damage to your skin. There is a possibility of short-term reactions such as redness and follicular edema, a temporary swelling of the hair root sac. These may take a few minutes to several hours to fade away.

Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?2018-08-16T14:24:32+00:00

No. With our new lasers, the process is almost painless. However, some people may feel a slight discomfort.

How soon do the results of the Laser Hair Removal show?2018-08-16T14:24:10+00:00

Results are visible from the very first session. The hair growth will be less and the hair finer, your skin becomes smoother and the hair pores, less visible. The results will become more impressive with each following session.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?2018-08-16T14:23:55+00:00

Yes, it is. The hair which is burnt during a laser hair removal session will never grow back. However, as hair grows in cycles, it takes multiple sessions to burn all the hair. Also, our bodies, as long as we are well and alive, will produce new hair. This process will continue despite laser hair removal. We, therefore, recommend clean-up sessions once or twice a year for select patients.
