These are a few of our frequently asked questions for Laser Hair Removal Cape Town. If any of your questions aren’t answered here, please feel free to contact us and our qualified therapist will assist you.
We use an SHR machine which stands for Super Hair Removal. SHR is advanced laser technology that produces excellent results in fewer sessions and is virtually painless. SHR is compatible with all skin tones and all hair colours except for red and white hair.
laser hair removal with SHR laser is virtually painless. The part of the machine that is in contact with the skin has a built in cooling system to prevent burns and pain from the laser. At most, you will feel a pin-prick sensation in very sensitive areas. If you feel any pain or discomfort during your treatment, please tell the therapist and they will adjust the settings according to your skin needs.
The number of sessions you need differs from person to person. The laser is more effective if there is a high contrast between skin colour and hair colour and if you normally shave instead of wax or epilate. It can also depend on if your diet is full of vitamins and nutrients that encourage hair growth. You will most likely see results after 2 sessions and a minimum of 4 is recommended for laser hair removal Cape Town.
There is no downtime required. You may experience some mild redness and sensitivity but this should subside in a day or two. If it persists, please notify the therapist before your next session. Please do your best to avoid direct sun exposure for 7 days before and after treatment and use sun protection for the course of the treatment.
We recommend that you schedule your next session for 21-28 days after your treatment. This is because your hair grows in cycles and shaving during the 21-28 days will allow for the next cycle of hair growth to be targeted. This will continue until you are satisfied with your laser hair removal Cape Town results.
There is a 5-10 minute consultation on your first session if this is the first time you are using laser. The treatment time varies depending on the size of the area being treated. Treatment for underarms takes about 10-15 minutes and full legs for women can take approximately 45 minutes.
We take the utmost precaution to minimise the risk of burning. We apply ultrasound gel to the area and the machine itself has a powerful cooling system to keep the part in contact with the skin cool. Even with these precautions, the laser may still feel warm on the skin. If you experience any burning sensation during the treatment, please notify the therapist and she will adjust the laser settings accordingly. We do ask that you avoid exposure to direct sunlight 7 days before and after treatment and apply sunblock if mild sun exposure to the area is expected.
For the laser to be able to target the hair follicle, the hair needs to be on the dermis of the skin. This means that if you normally wax or epilate the area, then please wait at least 2 weeks before scheduling your laser hair removal session and only shave during this time. We recommend that you shave the night before treatment so that the hair follicle can be easily targeted without risking any burns to the skin.
Yes, skin rejuvenation can reduce acne and improve the overall condition of the skin.
The number of sessions is dependent on your individual needs. You can come for as many sessions and as often as you like based on the results that you see. There is no minimum time recommended between sessions for laser hair removal Cape Town.
Laser skin rejuvenation works by stimulating the fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin as well as clears blocked sebaceous glands. This reduces fine lines and wrinkles and reduces the occurrence of acne breakouts.
