COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
For Laser to work the hair needs to have brown or black pigment or (chromophore) unfortunately grey and white hair doesn’t work. When the laser beam is placed on the skin the beam will absorb into the hair shaft and destroy the root. However, for this is work we need the hair to be in the growth phase – Anagen. For more on the phases of hair growth click here.
WHY DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL REQUIRE MULTIPLE TREATMENTS?
Laser and other energy-based hair removal requires multiple treatments because hair grows in different phases. Hair can take 6-12 weeks for it to grow from roo to surface – this growth stage is known as the anagen stage and this is the perfect time to receive laser hair treatment.
I’VE BEEN TOLD EVERY 4 WEEKS IS REQUIRED?
This is very common for practitioners to recommend this, however, if you come in every 4 weeks you will be only treating around 15-20% of hair in the anagen stage, whereas if you come every 6-10 weeks you will be getting at least 40-50% of hair in the anagen stage. In the long run you will get a better result and less treatments will be required. There is an exception when treating hormonal hair on the face.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Commonly requested areas include underarms, bikini and men’s chest and back. The great thing with Cutrea lasers they can treat all hair types – fine or coarse.
IS LASER HAIR REDUCTION WORTH IT?
Traditional methods of hair removal, like shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are still the go to method for many. However, these methods need to be done on a regular basis – forever. With Laser hair reduction the need to shave becomes less and less.
WILL I GET 100% HAIR REMOVAL?
Honestly, No. The average reduction in hair growth is between 60-80%. For some people they will get 90% reduction however, everyone is different and it does depend on your hair growth. The hair that is left is residual hair that is fine and may take months to grow back.
WHAT IS THE COST?
If you are decided to get laser hair reduction we always recommend to have a complimentary consultation. This is important as we go through a checklist to see if yo are suitable for the treatment. We also do a patch test to see how the skin reacts to heat and to eliminate any adverse reactions. After the consultation we will give you an exact price on the cost of treatment.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?
No it isn’t painful however, you do feel a little heat around the bony areas and some areas may pinch but laser hair reduction should never be painful. The advantage of having treatment with a Cutrea machine is the super cool tip, the tip is cooled to 4 degrees so when it is gliding over the skin it cools as it goes.
