Laser Hair Removal

For those who have regions of thick, coarse unwanted hairs and are simply fed up with the constant plucking, waxing and epilating, laser hair removal may be a worthwhile option.

Suitable for both facial hair removal and removal of hair of the body, laser therapy offers permanent results with minimal risks and a relatively pain-free procedure.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Hair removal via laser technology works based on the ability of the laser to penetrate the skin and selectively destroy the deep root of the hair, preventing further growth. Here at Neo, we have a range of laser state-of-the-art technology, such as IPL or M22 lasers. Each device has varying degrees of intensity making hair removal with a laser suitable for a wider audience.

Who Is A Suitable Candidate For Hair Removal?

Unfortunately, hair removal is still not recommended for all skin and hair types. The best results are seen with dark body hair on light, untanned skin. Treatment is not possible on blonde, grey or white hair, as they cannot be detected by the laser. In addition, tanned skin and skin with a high melanin content may experience visible pigmentation irregularities as the laser can also excite and damage melanocytes, the cells that give the skin it’s colour.

How Many Sessions Of Laser Treatment Will I Need?

The frequency of sessions depends on skin type, hair type and density of hair. Hair goes through a cycle of growth and resting phases and is only sensitive to laser treatment during the period of active growth. Therefore, multiple sessions are needed to complete treatment on a single area. On average, four to eight sessions are needed, at intervals of about four weeks, for complete hair removal.

How Do I Prepare For Hair Removal?

24 hours before the procedure the hair in the area to be treated should be shaved. Waxing, plucking and electrolysis should be avoided for at least six weeks before treatment. These hair removal techniques temporarily remove the root of the hair, which is an essential part of successful hair removal by laser. Sun exposure approximately six weeks before and after the treatment should also be avoided. This can increase the risk of complications and reduce effectiveness of the results. Many patients find the best months for a laser treatment are therefore during the low-light winter months where sun exposure is minimal and areas of the body to be treated are covered.

What Are The Risks And Possible Side Effects Of Laser Hair Removal

Hair removal by laser is a medical procedure using advanced laser technology. Redness and swelling may occur immediately after the procedure, but this should only last a few days. General risks of laser therapy include hyperpigmentation and blistering, although these risks are minimised when the treatment is performed by expert specialists with a deep understanding of the technology, the anatomy of different skin and hair types and have experience on how individual results will vary.
