Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.

The 3D Trilogyice triple wavelength Laser machine is one of the most advanced laser hair removal systems on the market and is extremely popular due to the comfort of the treatment and the effective results achieved by the machine.

The melanin pigment in the hair attracts and absorbs the energy released by the handheld device, as it is passed over the treated area. The gradual and precise build up of heat damages the structures of the hair, which will fall out over 2-3 weeks after the session. The hair follicles’ ability to grow hair has been compromised so hair growth in that certain follicle will not reoccur.

Before booking in for a course of treatments all clients are given a free consultation and patch test*, where you can meet your therapist, experience the procedure before you go ahead with your treatment.

During this consultation, the treatment is fully explained and the therapist will advise you on the best course of action.

Not suitable if you are pregnant, suffer from vitiligo, diabetes, herpes, history of keloid scarring, lupus, excessively dry skin, hyper pigmentation, active eczema, psoriasis, skin cancer or epilepsy.

Certain medications and herbal treatments which cause photo-sensitivity will also preclude you from having laser hair removal.

Please note that you must thoroughly shave the area to be treated either the evening before your appointment or first thing in the morning on the day of your visit.

The area should be smooth to the touch for laser treatment to be carried out.

Why do I need a course of treatments?

You will need a course of treatments as laser only works on hair that is in the growth phase of the hair cycle, known as Anagen. The other two phases of the hair cycle, called Catagen and Telogen, mean the hair is either dormant or falling out; so the laser doesn’t impact it. As all of your hair is in different phases at different times, you need several treatments spread out over a number of weeks to ensure the laser ‘catches’ the each of the hairs in their growth phase at some point.

Does laser hurt?

As with all treatments, it depends on the person and how sensitive they are, as well as the area being treated. The sensation is similar to an elastic band being snapped against your skin, and because the laser is moving all the time, the sensation is well-tolerated by most people. It’s advisable to avoid caffeine before your treatment as it can make your skin more sensitive. You can take a mild pain reliever (Paracetamol; NOT Ibuprofen as this also makes the skin sensitive).

How many treatments do I need?

The number of treatments you will need is dependent on the area being treated; how thick and dense the hair is and your skin type – it varies from person to person. You will need at least six-eight treatments and it will also depend on how often you come back for your sessions. Coarse, thick hair such as that on a man’s chest will take longer to treat than fine hair, but your initial consultation with an experienced therapist will give you an idea of what to expect.It only affects the specific structures of the hair and follicle, leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.

Is the laser treatment safe?

Laser is a clinically tested treatment; FDA approved and has undergone rigorous trials to ensure patient safety and efficiency. Jazz is highly trained in performing the treatments; we take client comfort and safety very seriously and only use the highest grade medical lasers. Before starting a course of treatment, we give each client a consultation and patch test with a 3 day waiting period to ensure skin is safe and the patch test is clear. If you are having treatments with us and happen to go on holiday throughout your treatment course we will ask that you will have another patch test when you return to ensure your skin is ready to resume treatment without the risk of pigmentation occurring.

Waxing & Shaving before, during and after laser hair removal:

You can shave the day before treatment; not the day of, as shaving exfoliates the skin and makes it sensitive, which can make laser treatment uncomfortable. Don’t wax, as if you remove hair, the laser has nothing to target!

During the course of treatment
You may shave between sessions – do not wax as it will affect hair growth patterns and affect results. Waxing or plucking completely removes the hair form the follicle, and for the laser to work there needs to be a hair present in the follicle. If you have waxed or plucked the treatment area you would have to wait 6-8 weeks for follicles to produce a new hair.

 

After the laser course is finished
We’d recommend you continue using laser until you achieve the level of hair reduction you’re happy with. Any remaining or reoccurring hair will be minimal; very fine in texture and light in colour so it’s ok to wax these.
