Unlock Your Cosmetic Dream: Laser Hair Removal Treatment Guide

Tired of shaving, waxing, or tweezing unwanted body hair? Laser hair removal might be the solution you’ve been dreaming of. Say goodbye to stubble and hello to smooth, hair-free skin with our advanced Laser Treatment.

At Eva Clinic Bath, we use leading laser technology to treat all skin types, even tanned skin, without damaging the surrounding skin. We offer a personalised course of laser hair removal depending on your hair colour, skin colour, and hair growth cycle.

In this guide, we will discuss what laser hair removal is, its benefits, types of laser removal treatments, and more.

What is it, and How does it work?

Laser hair removal is a procedure that is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted body hair, especially for people with dark hair and light skin.

Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin in the hair follicles. Melanin is the pigment that gives hair its colour. When the melanin absorbs the laser energy, it heats and destroys hair follicles. This damage prevents the hair follicle from producing new hair.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

There are many benefits, including:

  • Permanent hair reduction: It can permanently reduce the amount of hair on the body. This means that you won’t have to shave, wax, or pluck your hair as often, if at all.
  • Reduced ingrown hairs: It can help to reduce the number of ingrown hairs that you experience. This is because laser energy can destroy the hair follicles that are responsible for ingrown hairs.
  • Smoother skin: It can make your skin feel smoother and softer by removing hair follicles responsible for creating a rough texture.
  • Convenience: It is a convenient way to remove unwanted hair. It is a quick and easy cosmetic procedure that can be done in a doctor’s office or clinic.

Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a good option for most people with unwanted hair. However, it is important to be aware that laser hair removal may be less effective on light-coloured hair or on people with dark skin tones.

Here are some other factors that may affect your candidacy for laser hair removal:

  • Hair type: Laser hair removal is most effective on dark, coarse hair. Light-colored or fine hair may be more difficult to remove with laser energy.
  • Skin type: Laser hair removal is generally safe for all skin types. However, people with darker skin tones may be at increased risk of side effects, such as hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.
  • Medical history: If you have any medical conditions, such as diabetes or rosacea, it is important to talk to your doctor before getting laser hair removal.

Types of Laser Removal Treatments

There are two main types of laser: diode and Nd: YAG lasers.

  • Diode lasers are the most common type of laser used for hair removal at Eva Clinic Bath. They are effective on all skin types and most hair colours. 
  • Nd: YAG lasers are less common than diode lasers, but they are effective on darker skin types. Nd: YAG lasers work by emitting a beam of light that penetrates deeper into the skin than diode lasers. This allows them to reach and destroy hair follicles that are located deeper in the dermis.

Eva Clinic Bath offers the Xlase Plus Diode Laser for laser hair removal. It is known for being painless and features a cooling device to protect the surrounding skin during treatment.

How to prepare for laser hair removal

Here are a few tips on how to prepare for your treatment at Eva Clinic Bath:

  • Avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before treatment.
  • Shave the treatment area 24 hours before treatment.
  • Avoid waxing, plucking, or depilatory creams for at least four weeks before treatment.
  • Cleanse the treatment area with a gentle soap and water before treatment.
  • Avoid wearing makeup or deodorant on the treatment area before treatment.

 

What to expect during treatment?

During your treatment at Eva Clinic Bath, you will be given protective goggles to wear. Our experienced technicians will then apply a cooling gel to the treatment area to protect your skin and hair. The laser will then be directed at the treatment area, heating up and destroying the hair follicles.

The treatment itself is relatively painless. However, you may feel a slight warming or tingling sensation, and the treatment will typically take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Aftercare

At Eva Clinic Bath, we want to ensure you achieve the best possible results, so here are some aftercare tips to follow:

  • Avoid sun exposure. The sun can darken the treated area and make the laser treatment less effective. Be sure to wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher on the treated area for at least two weeks after your treatment.
  • Avoid hot showers and baths. Hot water can irritate the treated skin. Instead, take cool or lukewarm showers and baths for the first few days after your treatment.
  • Avoid strenuous activity. Strenuous activity can cause sweating, which can irritate the treated skin. Instead, opt for light exercise, such as walking or yoga.
  • Moisturise the treated area. Apply a moisturiser to the treated area several times a day to keep it hydrated and prevent dryness.

Results

Most people see a noticeable reduction in hair growth after just one laser hair removal treatment. However, multiple treatments are usually necessary to achieve the best results. The number of treatments needed will vary depending on the individual’s hair colour, skin type, and the area being treated.

Side effects

It is generally a safe and effective treatment. However, there are some potential side effects, including:

  • Redness and swelling. This is the most common side effect and is usually mild and temporary.
  • Blistering and bruising. This is less common and usually occurs in people with sensitive skin.
  • Scarring. This is very rare and can be caused by incorrect laser settings or inadequate aftercare.
  • Changes in skin pigmentation. This is also rare and can occur in people with darker skin tones.

If you experience any side effects after your treatment, be sure to contact your aesthetician immediately.

Cost of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal pricing depends on several factors, including:

  • Size of the area being treated: Larger areas, such as the legs or back, will cost more to treat than smaller areas, such as the upper lip or underarms.
  • Type of laser used: Different types of lasers are used for laser hair removal. Some lasers are more expensive than others.
  • Number of treatments required: The number of treatments required will vary depending on the individual’s hair colour, skin type, and desired results.

In general, the cost of laser hair removal ranges from £80 to £650 per session. Most patients require a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve the desired results.
