Frequently Asked Questions
How many laser treatments do I need?
For best results, we recommend 8 treatments, around 6 weeks apart. You should start to see results after your second or third treatment – but it's important to note that the way the human body has been designed means it's impossible to remove 100% of unwanted hair. In some cases, we can remove up to 98% of hair, and the average person can expect at least 80% removal. However, this is dependent on age, hair type, hormone levels, any existing medical conditions and other factors.
How does it work?
A beam of light is passed through the area, where it's absorbed by the pigment in the hair. This generates heat, which loosens the hair and also disables the cells involved in hair growth to prevent future hairs.
Does it hurt?
Most people describe the treatment as uncomfortable rather than painful. The level of discomfort varies between individuals and depends on the area being treated - at Skinsmiths we pride ourselves on performing the treatments quickly and safely, so it's over in no time!
Who is it suitable for?
The laser works by targeting colour in the hair shaft and follicle – so we see the best results with darker hair. For that reason, blonde, red and grey hairs can be more difficult to remove. Some underlying medical conditions may exclude you from the treatment, as they make the results harder to predict. We recommend coming in for a consultation where we can assess your suitability.
