Is laser hair removal permanent?
At Chiltern Medical Clinic, we only use lasers that are approved for permanent hair reduction by the United States Federal Drug Administration. This means most patients will achieve long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing in the treated areas. The amount of permanent reduction increases with the number of treatments. Occasionally, you may have a few hairs regrow over a period of time.
How long do the treatments take?
What should I expect following the treatment?
Once the treatment is complete, the area exposed to the laser is cleansed and you are free to return to your normal routine. Some patients may experience a slight reddening around hair follicles following the treatment, which typically disappears within a few minutes. It is always recommended to avoid sun exposure or to use sunscreen following the laser treatment.
Hair follicles affected by the laser are lifeless and your body will attempt to cast them off over a period of time. It will seem that the hair continues to grow for one to two weeks after the procedure, but in fact these lifeless hairs will easily fall out.
Can you treat darker skin colours?
At Chiltern Medical Clinic, we have the newest lasers that have been specifically designed to treat all skin colours. They are safe, affordable, and can achieve the same permanent hair reduction as seen in lighter skin types.
Is laser hair removal safe?
Since only light is used to remove hair, it is totally non-invasive. Your eyes will be shielded during the treatment. While there is a slight chance of skin irritation and pigment changes, these are rare due to the type of lasers used at Chiltern Medical Clinic and the training of our staff.
