Laser Hair Removal FAQ

Is it safe?

All of the research on laser hair removal has reinforced that there is no link between cancer and light energy from hair removal lasers, which does not contain UV light. In fact, the same machines used for laser hair removal are now used to treat recurrent melanoma and advanced melanoma (skin cancer).

Laser hair removal at Advance Laser Aesthetics is available for any part of the face or body. The machine used is the advanced infinity diode laser machine with intelligent client tracking software.

Laser hair removal is the safest way to remove hair, even in sensitive areas without the risk of skin damage or long term complications. Most patients report feeling slight discomfort during treatments, with the tingling sensation often described as being similar to a flick of an elastic band.

Professional laser hair removal machines are extremely powerful and should always be operated by a qualified practitioner, who will monitor your skin throughout treatments to reduce the risk of any complications.

What are the possible complications?

Dermal burns: In the wrong hands it is possible for a laser hair removal machine to burn the skin in the area treated although this is rare. To be safe, always make sure you are in the hands of a practitioner with a level 4 advanced qualification.

Skin irritation: Some patients report a feeling of temporary discomfort, redness and/or mild swelling in the area treated, these will normally go away within a few hours.

Pigment changes: Some patients report changes to the colour/tone of the skin in the area treated, this is rare and your practitioner will carefully monitor your skin reaction to the laser treatment to help to prevent this.

Is it effective?

Once a laser treatment is completed, the hair in the area treated will gradually grow back finer and lighter, with hair growth reducing after each treatment.

Further to completing a course of laser hair removal treatments, hair growth can be reduced by up to 90% and patients report no longer needing to use any hair removal products (this will need to be maintained with top-up treatments, which are normally required every 12 months).

Skin type: Our laser hair removal machine can treat skin types according to the Fitzpatrick scale below:

  • Type I (scores 0–6) pale, white skin, freckles - always burn, never tans
  • Type II (scores 7–13) pale, white skin, freckles - usually burn, tans minimally
  • Type III (scores 14–20) white skin, sometimes mild burn, tans uniformly
  • Type IV (scores 21–27) light, brown skin, burns minimally, always tans well
  • Type V (scores 28–34) medium brown skin, rarely burns, tans very easily

Not suitable for treatment

  • Type VI (scores 35–36) deeply pigmented dark brown skin, never burns

For those with type 6 skin types on the Fitzpatrick scale, we would be happy to offer essential advice and guidance on suitable treatment and offer trusted onward referral to specialised services or indeed known clinics who may have specific laster technology to treat this skin type. We treat 96% of skin type with our technology.

Pregnancy: Laser hair removal is not recommended for pregnant women and we will not treat you if you think you could be or know you are pregnant.

Advantages of Laser Hair Removal

No more ingrowing hairs

Ingrown hair is caused by a hair strand that grows sideward or downward, instead of upward and becomes trapped under the skin; they can cause inflammation and become infected, this is a common occurrence with waxing, shaving and hair removal creams.

Laser hair removal kills the hair follicle which prevents ingrowing hairs (as long as you don't shave or wax between treatments).

Smoother skin

Skin becomes irritated from a combination of hairs penetrating the skin and the effects of shaving, waxing, and hair removal products.

Laser hair removal will leave skin smooth (mild irritation may occur for the first few hours after treatments).

Softer, finer, lighter hair

Shaving can cause hair to become coarser. Laser hair removal will reduce the thickness of the hair in the area treated and new hair growth will become lighter and less noticeable.
