TOP TEN LASER HAIR REMOVAL QUESTIONS

Here are the top ten most frequently asked questions about Laser Hair Removal and Intense Pulsed Light from our HIFU clients (IPL). Hair removal and other treatments are performed using laser and IPL. Laser hair removal is often used for upper lip hair removal, chin hair removal, arm hair removal, underarm hair removal, leg hair removal, and bikini line hair removal. Treatments are popular at this time of year since individuals are planning vacations and their skin hasn’t been exposed to the sun, making it appropriate for treatment.

1. WHAT IS THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN IPL AND LASER?

The primary distinction between IPL and laser is how light, heat, and energy are supplied; laser delivers direct energy, whereas IPL delivers a broad spectrum of light that is scattered across a broader region. Both procedures are effective and will produce decent results; however, at HIFU , we prefer laser hair removal for the majority of our clientele.

2. IS THE TREATMENT ANNOYING?

The therapy is no more painful than waxing, and many people claim it is far less unpleasant. HIFU (including MBNS) strives to make treatments as comfortable and effective as possible. It is critical that we strike the proper balance by treating each of our consumers as an individual. During treatment, your practitioner will make every effort to make you as comfortable as possible. For example, we will apply a cool gel to the skin before treatment and frequently have cold air flowing directly on the skin during treatment. Many of our clinics offer lasers with chilled treatment heads that feel cool when in touch with the skin.

3. IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL A LONG-TERM PROCESS?

Hair removal lasers has been in use since 1997 and are FDA-approved for “permanent hair reduction.” According to this definition, “permanent” hair reduction is the long-term, consistent reduction in the number of hairs that grow back after a treatment regimen. When your treatment period is finished, all of the hair follicles that have been treated will be permanently dead and will not grow back. This is typically roughly 20% of the hair present during any given treatment. For the most complete elimination, we recommend a series of six laser hair removal treatments. Prices for laser hair removal are displayed by treatment area for single and six-session blocks. For numerous locations, particularly large regions such as the male back, contact your local clinic for a combo pricing discount.

4. WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO GET LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

The optimal time for a female to undergo treatment is immediately following her menstrual cycle; if you have recently waxed or plucked, we recommend waiting 2-3 weeks before your first Laser hair removal session. Many people simply get tired of waxing and prefer to get their hair removed permanently!

5. CAN I GET LASER HAIR REMOVAL WHILE PREGNANT?

There have been no clinical studies to indicate that Laser Hair Removal may cause side effects in pregnant or breastfeeding women, but there has also been no research to prove that therapy is safe during pregnancy. As a result, HIFU takes precautions and does not treat pregnant or breastfeeding women. Patient safety is always our first priority.

6. WHAT SHOULD I DO IN THE INTERVAL BETWEEN LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS?

We ask that patients refrain from removing hair between treatments, such as waxing, plucking, or using hair removal lotions. Trimming or shaving is the most effective approach to keep your hair growing during your treatment cycle. Removing the hair follicle at the root throughout your treatment session will disrupt the hair development cycle and may necessitate further treatments for an effective result.

7. CAN LASER HAIR REMOVAL BE USED ON LIGHT COLORED HAIR?

Dark hair absorbs more light and heat and is therefore easier to treat, but laser hair removal will be effective as long as there is some pigmentation and colour in the hair follicle. Our IPL and Laser Hair Removal equipment are suitable for all skin types. During the appointment, your practitioner will confirm the precise results you might expect.

IS THERE ANY RISK INVOLVED?

It is critical to attend a clinic led by healthcare specialists with extensive training and expertise. Our treatments are delivered by skilled nurses and laser professionals. There are some modest chances that other dark patches on the skin’s surface will attract light and heat; your specialist will go over all of this with you during your consultation.

9. WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO GET LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

The only rules for Laser Hair Removal are that you cannot have an active suntan or be wearing any type of artificial tan. You cannot be pregnant or breastfeeding if you are currently taking any medication or herbal pills that cause photosensitivity (for example, St. John’s Wart), and you cannot be pregnant or breastfeeding if you are currently taking any medication or herbal pills that cause photosensitivity (for example, St. John’s Wart).

10. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST, EXACTLY?

Treatment costs vary based on the part of the body that needs to be treated. HIFU is reasonably priced, and we do provide discounts on treatment bundles. We use some of the most advanced laser machines available, ensuring the best possible outcomes. This has the advantage of requiring fewer laser hair removal treatments to achieve full hair eradication. You can contact us via email if you have any queries or would like to schedule a consultation.
