Hair Removal - FAQ's

What areas can laser hair removal treat?

Laser hair removal can remove hair from faces, backs, chests, arms, underarms, bikini, legs and more.

Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?

Different lasers can effectively treat different skin types. Our laser can be used on a wide range of skin types from very light to very dark skin. During your consultation we will determine the best course of treatment for you based on a variety of factors such as hair colour and hair type.

How many treatments will I need?

Typically, we recommend a series of six treatment sessions to provide the best aesthetic outcome. Laser hair removal technology can only affect hair in active phases of growth, so several treatments are needed to affect all of the unwanted hair.

Can I shave in between laser hair removal sessions?

Yes. In fact, the area needs to be freshly shaved before your treatment session. You may shave the area the day before the treatment or the day of the treatment before coming in for your session. But you should not wax or pluck the hair during the course of your laser sessions.

How far apart are treatment sessions?

It depends on which area is being treated. In general, face, underarms, arms, and bikini are approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Back, chest, and legs are approximately 8-10 weeks apart. During your consultation your treatment course will be discussed.

What will laser hair removal feel like?

Most people feel only a slight momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure followed by a slight heating of the skin. This typically goes away after the treatment but cooling methods can be used immediately after treatment to help with this sensation.

How quickly will I recover?

Typically, you can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.

Are there any side effects?

You may experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor redness and/or swelling immediately following the treatment. This usually lasts 2-24 hours. Ask Sarah or one of her qualified team members to discuss other possible side effects and the necessary post- treatment care with you.

 

Leg Vein Treatment - What To Expect

What types of veins can be treated?

It is ideal for spider veins and reticular veins on your legs.

How long does the treatment take?

Depending on the size of the area being treated, they can take just minutes. Typically, treatments are no longer than 30 minutes.

What type of result can I expect?

Many people experience immediate improvement in the appearance of their leg veins following the treatment followed by continued improvement over the next week or so.

How many treatments will I need?

A series of treatments may be needed to fully clear blood vessels and reduce the appearance of the leg veins completely. Typically one to four sessions are needed for desired results.

What does the procedure feel like?

Patients describe a range of sensations from tingling to the snap of a rubber band during the procedure. You may also feel warmth during and after the procedure on the area that was treated.

When can I resume my daily activities?

Typically, there is no downtime and you can return to your daily activities immediately following the procedure.

Pigmented Lesions Treatment - What To Expect

What will it feel like?

Treatments are very well tolerated. Many clients describe the treatment as a ‘warm sensation’ or the snap of a rubber band.

How long will it take?

The procedure typically takes less than 20 minutes to perform depending on the size of the area or number of pigmented lesions being treated.

Often you will see great results after the first treatment session but 2-3 sessions may be required for optimal outcomes.

What do I need to do before a treatment?

You will need to avoid the sun, tanning beds and self-tanning creams and lotions prior to treatment. There may be some medications that you will need to avoid Sarah or one of her qualified team members will cover these during your consultation.

What will happen after the procedure?

Some patients experience a mild sunburn sensation for a short time after the procedure. We may apply some ice immediately following your treatment to help minimise this. The pigmented lesions will darken over the next few days. The area will look a bit “dirty” or dark for about a week. Over this time, the treated skin will slough off, revealing fresh new skin.

How quickly will I recover?

Typically, you can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment. Makeup can be applied to the treated area immediately, if necessary.

It is extremely important to apply a moisturizer with SPF30 sun block and avoid sun exposure on a daily basis to prevent additional sun damage.

Am I a candidate?

We offer a free consultation where we will talk with you about your skin type to confirm if you would be a good candidate for this treatment.

What areas can be treated?

Laser pigment clearance can be performed on the face and chest, as well as on the hands, arms and legs.

How many treatments will I need?

This will often depend on the pigmented lesion you have. For some brown spots, only a single treatment is needed, for others, a series of treatments may be recommended. Often you will see improvements within a couple weeks, with further improvements on subsequent treatments until you have achieved the over-all improvement you desire.
