Has laser hair removal actually worked for you?
Has Laser Hair removal actually worked for you? Bradford laser clinic MySkyn explores some real facts on why so many laser treatments don’t get long term results.
We decided to address the issue of “failed laser treatments” because a vast majority of new clients visiting our Bradford laser clinic have asked us to explain why, after a course of treatments in the past using a range of different lasers, their hair has returned.
This is particularly a problem on the face, whilst others have asked why it hasn’t worked at all on fine vellus/baby hair as well as body hair.
Bradford laser clinic MySkyn recommends…
Lasers are complex machines, but not all lasers deliver the correct wavelength to target thick hair on the body and fine hair on the face. They also vary in the amount of energy they deliver to the hair to destroy it, hence preventing regrowth.
Our Bradford laser clinic recommends:
- No laser hair removal treatment is 100% permanent. The aim is to provide hair reduction by 70-90% and manage its re-growth. We recommended having top up sessions after finishing a course of treatments. This can be anywhere from 6 months to 2 years after the end of your initial sessions.
As soon as you notice any hair returning book a ‘top up’ session to avoid having to have another course.
- There are many lasers out there for example Nd:Yag, Ruby, Alexandrite and Diode that are marketed under different brand names. Finding the right laser to treat your skin type, hair colour and texture is key to effective long lasting results. Research the technology behind the laser you are going to invest your money in!
- Choose a clinic that will support your journey throughout the treatment plan. It is essential that the aesthetician is able to analyse your hair growth as you progress through your treatments.
Laser treatments are complex and require adjustments in machine settings which only an experienced aesthetician/therapist will be able to do successfully and safely.
