Laser Hair Removal Birmingham

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

laser hair removal is a procedure that removes unwanted hair using a concentrated beam of light. The Laser emits light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, damaging the skin’s hair-producing tube-shaped sacs (hair follicles). Future hair development is inhibited or delayed as a result of this process. Laser hair removal can effectively postpone hair growth for a long time. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are required, and maintenance treatments may be necessary for some clients to achieve maximum satisfaction.  The success of laser hair removal is influenced by hair colour and skin type.

TREATMENT INDICATIONS

  • Unwanted facial/body hair growth

AFTERCARE

  • For the initial few hours following laser hair removal, you may experience redness and swelling.
  • Apply ice to the affected area to relieve any discomfort. If you experience a skin reaction after laser hair removal, your doctor may use steroid cream to treat the affected region.
  • Avoid sunlight and tanning beds for six weeks after laser hair removal and between regular treatments, or as instructed by your doctor. Every day, apply a broad-spectrum SPF30 sunscreen.
  • Hairs do not come out right away; instead, they fall out over a period of days to weeks. This could appear to be new hair growth. Because hair growth and loss occur in a natural cycle, and laser treatment works best with hair follicles in the new-growth period, multiple sessions are frequently required.
