Is laser hair removal for you? Are you tired of shaving or waxing your unwanted hair?
Are you suffering from ingrown hairs that are inflamed and itchy?
Have you noticed brown pigment scars appearing on your legs? These are a result of trauma caused by the ingrown hairs.
Would you like smooth skin with an even tone and texture?
At About Face Brisbane it is possible to reduce that persistent hair growth, ingrown hairs and the continual need to shave or wax and with several treatments, the hair grows back finer and the quantity of hair is dramatically reduced.
How does it work?
A concentrated beam of laser light is aimed at the hair. The light is absorbed by the hair pigment in the hair and travels down the hair shaft and destroys the hair follicle and the bulb enough to retard future growth.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
No, we strongly advise our patients that laser hair removal is a permanent reduction, not removal. There are many factors that can influence and stimulate hair growth. We also have dormant hairs in the body that can enter the growth cycle at any time.
How Many Treatments will I need?
Multiple treatments are required to achieve long-term hair reduction.
There are four cycles of hair growth. The laser is only able to destroy the hair follicle when it’s in the Anagen (growth) phase. Different body areas grow at different rates.
Other factors to be considered:
- Hair and skin colour
- An individual’s response to the treatment
A series of 10 plus treatments is often needed. Follow up maintenance treatments may be required.
Studies now show that an average hair loss of approximately 80% occurs after 6-8 treatments. What do I need to do before my treatment?
- It is important to avoid sun exposure for at least 3 weeks prior to a laser treatment.
- If you have a spray tan this needs to be completely gone before your treatment.
- You need to wait four weeks after waxing before you can have a laser hair removal treatment
- It is important to shave the area to be treated the night before or on the day of your treatment
