How it works?
Laser Diode Hair Removal is a permanent hair reduction method that uses the gentle yet precise beam of laser to remove unwanted hair. It targets the hair follicles underneath the skin whilst the surrounding area remains unaffected.
Laser hair removal is a 3 step procedure which involves cleaning, shaving and laser.
After cleansing the treatment area, the area will be gently shaved. (You may opt to shave before you come to quicken the process)
The clean , shaven area is now ready for laser treatment. Cool ultrasound gel will be applied and the area will be additionally pre cooled with the laser’s cool sapphire tip to prevent any superficial burns and to make the procedure comfortable and painless. The designated area will then be treated in a gentle gliding method to gradually heat up the dermis area to effectively damage hair follicles and significantly impede their growth. The skin is always kept cool on the surface making this procedure suitable for all skin types including tanned skin.The hair will start shedding after 1-3 weeks, and will significantly reduce the hair growth in the treated area. Laser hair removal works best in the hair Anagen phase (Growing). Sadly, not all hair grows at the same time. Therefore follow-up sessions will be needed for optimum results.

Why it needs more than 1 sessions?
Not all hairs are growing at the same rate. For optimum results, consistent treatments will allow hair follicles to be treated in the right hair growth phase. Each hair passes through 3 phases of the hair growth cycle. The anagen (active growing phase of the hair), Catagen (Regression/Hair Growth stops) and Telogen (Resting phase). Laser Hair removal treatment works effectively by targeting the hair follicles at the Anagen (active growth) phase, which usually consists of 20% of hair during each treatment. Since not all hairs will enter this active growth phase at the same time, additional sessions may be necessary to disable all the hair follicles in a given area.
What is the interval of this treatment?
The interval of the follow-up session would span between 3-6 weeks and may vary on the individual condition and body part.
Can I shave between sessions?
Yes, unlike waxing, you can shave between sessions and know that it won’t interfere with your hair removal treatment. The hair on the treatment zone will become more sparse after every treatment.
