FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser Hair Removal is a safe, effective, and popular treatment that delivers great results in the removal of unwanted hair. The laser mechanism works with focused and intense beams of light. This light is converted to heat and then absorbed by the cells in the targeted hair follicle, successfully breaking it down while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.
Well-versed in the latest technology, StudioMD laser treatments feature skin-cooling devices for even greater patient comfort and faster results.
WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE BEFORE OR AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Before the laser treatment, your hair must be short, about 2-3 days hair growth, 3mm max. You should avoid waxing, only shaving or trimming before and between sessions.
This allows the laser energy to travel down to the follicle faster and ensures the laser treatment is more comfortable for you.
It is best to avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks before and after the laser treatment. If desired, you can use spray tan 24 hours after the session, but it’s advisable to wear at least a 30+ SPF sunscreen for any actual exposure to the sun.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS AFTER HAVING LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
The best thing about laser hair removal is that you’ll likely see the results very soon after the session. Even though it varies from patient to patient, you can expect a 10% to 25% reduction in hair already in the first treatment cycle.
Most patients usually need from 2 to 6 laser treatments and then do not see any hair on the treated skin for several months or even years. When and if the hair eventually regrows in some spots, it tends to be finer and lighter in color.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO GET LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Your treatment timeline will depend on the hair, skin type, and body area being treated. Overall, most patients require sessions at 4-6 weeks intervals.
Since each part of the face and body has a different growing cycle, hair reduction will vary depending on what stage your follicles are in at the time of the treatment. During your complimentary consultation, your laser specialist will discuss a schedule that works with your desired results.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?
One of the benefits of Laser Hair Removal is that the treatment is virtually painless when compared to waxing. It can produce a slight tingling sensation in some particularly sensitive areas - such as the upper lip - but even then each pulse only lasts less than a second. At StudioMD, we use an advanced cooling machine in conjunction with our laser device to reduce the pulse heat sensation on the skin and minimise any discomfort.
