Company policy for laser hair removal

Company policy for laser hair removal:
Your laser hair removal appointments will be booked every 8 weeks for the first three appointments, then, every 15 weeks for diode laser for your body areas. Laser hair removal appointments for face can be booked on weeks 4-5-6-7 and 8. Following your consultation your appointments will be booked in advance. These intervals are specified by the manufacturer of the machines.

Your laser hair removal appointments will be booked on weeks 6-7 and 8 for NdYag laser for your body areas. Laser hair removal appointments for face can be booked on weeks 4-5-6-7 and 8. Following your consultation your appointments will be booked in advance. These intervals are specified by the manufacturer of the machines.

It is very important to make sure that before you attend your laser hair removal appointments that there are no creams, deodorant, perfume or any form of liquids or sprays on the area in which treatment will be carried out. Laser hair removal does not permit treatment to tanned skin so therefore please avoid tanning, sun bathing or tanning creams.

Laser hair removal is a process of hair removal which works on the follicle of the hair and therefore the only forms of trimming hair in between treatments advised is a razor or trimmer. Threading, waxing and epilating are not advised as these forms of hair removal will remove the follicle and will cause an unsatisfactory result for laser hair removal.

Please note, you must trim your hair 2 days before your laser appointment, if this is not followed we have the right to deduct a session from your package treatment and count the session towards your remaining sessions. In this case you may not be able to have an appointment until your next due appointment which is once every 8-15 weeks. We require hair length of no longer than 2mm in order to be able to carryout treatment.

 

The Diode laser is the most useful hair removal light source and the most promising laser for hair removal. It is efficient and safe. The Diode laser is the best overall machine for treating all six skin types based on safety and long term use and is especially effective for skin types 1 to 4. Because it has a longer wavelength than other lasers it improves treatment results on darker skin types.

Ndyag is the best option for skin type 5-6. It is effective and safe to use for dark skin.

 

General information from Dr Kargin

Laser is a light source that aims to burn the hair follicle.

To reach the hair follicle your hairs must be in place and connected to the follicle, therefore it is not ideal to wax, pluck or epilate the hairs in between treatments.

You can shave in between sessions but:

NO waxing- NO plucking- NO threading- NO hair removal creams.

Laser can only recognise and burn the melanin pigment, which gives your hairs its colour. So it can only burn brown, dark blonde or black hairs. White, grey or light blonde hairs can NOT be treated. Please do NOT use any cosmetics such as cream, lotion, spray tan or makeup on the day of the treatment.

 

You must shave your hairs 2 days before your treatment.

Upper leg, forearms and abdomen hairs grow slower, so you must shave 4 days before hand. We just need to see the tip of the hairs, approx 1mm would be ideal. After several sessions of laser hair removal your hairs will grow slower, so you must shave a few days in advance.

 

We do NOT perform any treatment on women who are pregnant or breast feeding. So, if you are trying for a baby, pregnant or breast feeding, please inform us!

 

If you are allergic to aloe Vera cream or latex gloves or metal, please inform us.

 

We use Diode laser which is the latest technology in the UK. It is used without air blowing or ice application. It is used with organic cellulose gel.

 

We use NdYag laser which was choosen as best of English this year. It uses air blowing.

We cannot perform your treatment if you have a sun tan. Even if you have a slight suntan, laser may still cause burns. When we develop melanin due to suntan, melanin collects in the upper surface of our skin, which may result in possible burns. As soon as the laser touches the skin it burns the melanin on the surface before reaching the hair follicle.
