Frequently asked Questions about Laser Hair Removal

Is laser hair removal painful?


Laser hair removal is generally far less painful than waxing, although the sensation that you experience is different. Many patients tell us that each laser pulse feels a little like a rubber band snapping against their skin for a split second. Any pain that you do feel is very brief, and because the laser pulse can treat quite a significant area of hair each time, it is all over before you know it. Most patients do not require any anaesthetic numbing cream.




Does age affect the results of laser hair removal?


No, age has no effect on the results that can be achieved with laser hair removal. No matter what your age, the laser system will kill the hair at the follicle in the same way as long as the hairs are dark in colour.




What is the difference between IPL and laser?


Lasers are far more effective at absorbing into melanin than IPL devices, which means fewer treatments are required with true laser hair removal systems. Lasers also penetrate deeper, and can specifically target hair structures, whereas IPLs typically do not. On top of that, lasers also have advanced cooling systems, making treatment sessions as comfortable as possible for you.




Is laser hair removal suitable for all skin types?


Yes! With Cynosure Elite + we can treat all skin types due to the dual-wavelength. Hair removal technology has been around for decades, and in years gone by certain skin types couldn't enjoy the benefits of silky-smooth skin from laser treatments. Previous generations of laser hair removal systems would struggle to target hair in darker shades of skin, due to the skin pigment being too difficult of a task for the laser technology to pinpoint.

Fortunately, the technological advancements in recent years have allowed us to safely and effectively treat all different skin types with our advanced laser hair removal system.




What should I do after my laser hair removal treatment?


Following your laser hair removal treatment, you will find that your skin is likely to be sensitive, so we would advise that you refrain from taking a hot shower or bath for the first 24 hours. We would also advise that you avoid steam rooms, saunas, swimming pools and exercise for the first 24-48 hours. Do not use a sunbed or expose the area to direct sunlight while having laser hair removal treatments. Avoid perfumed products or thick creams for the first 48 hours, and don't wear tight clothing like skinny jeans or nylon tights (if legs are being treated) for the first 48 hours, because they can cause friction and aggravate recently treated areas.

Treated skin can become easily irritated, so it's important that you follow and adhere to these guidelines in order to ensure that your skin remains as comfortable and as safe as possible following treatment. Following your laser treatment, you will be provided with a free aftercare pack with written aftercare and a tube of Aloe Vera.




Is laser hair removal safe?


You can rest assured laser hair removal is very safe and clinically tested. It is FDA approved and has undergone rigorous tests to completely ensure customer safety and efficacy. Our practitioners are highly qualified and experienced in delivering laser hair removal treatments with our advanced Cynosure laser system, and we take client care, comfort and safety extremely seriously. We use only the highest grade medical lasers in our South Wales based clinic. You will be free to ask any further in-depth questions at your consultation so that any concerns can be put at ease.

Hair removal technology has been around for decades, and in years gone by certain skin types couldn't enjoy the benefits of silky-smooth skin from laser treatments.

Why do I have so much hair?


The majority of the time, excess facial or body hair can be blamed on hereditary factors. For many people, puberty brings the onset of unwanted hair, while for others the menopause, age or pregnancy can trigger further hair growth. Other reasons may be down to hormonal imbalances such as polycystic ovaries. Shaving can cause your hair to gradually grow back thicker, stronger, and darker, therefore laser hair removal is the only true way of permanently removing hair.




How long is each individual treatment session?


The good news is that each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second, and it can treat many hairs with each pulse. This means the advanced laser hair system that we use can treat an area the size of a 10 pence piece, every single second, making laser hair removal a very fast process indeed. Small areas like the upper lip can be done in a matter of seconds and larger areas like the back or legs should be complete in around 30 minutes, though each case is unique so treatment times can vary slightly.




How many laser hair removal treatments will I need, and how far apart are they scheduled?


The majority of laser hair removal patients will need an average of 8 treatments, though each individual case is different. We recommend that treatments are spaced at 4-6 weeks for facial hair and 6-8 weeks for body hair. This is because hair grows in cycles, and several sessions are required to effectively treat every hair within the treated area. If you require hair removal on both the face and body, we suggest scheduling appointments every 6 weeks.




Can I wax or shave before, during or after laser hair removal?


Before your treatment:

You may shave the day before, but we advise you not to shave on the actual day of your laser treatment. This is because shaving exfoliates the skin a little, and this may make the laser treatment more uncomfortable than it needs to be.

Do not wax the area. If you wax you will completely remove the hair from the root which will mean the laser will have nothing to target!

During your course of treatment:

You are free to shave as you normally would between sessions. Do not wax or pluck the area at all, as this will affect the growth pattern of your hair and this will have a negative effect on the results we achieve. Waxing and plucking will completely remove the hair from the follicles, and for the laser to work it needs to attack the hair while it is present in the follicle. If you have waxed or plucked the treatment area, you would have to wait at least 4-6 weeks for the follicles to grow new hair.

After your treatment:

Once treatment is complete, we would recommend continuing with laser hair treatments until we have achieved the level of permanent hair reduction that you are happy with. Any remaining or reoccurring hair will reduce further with each treatment, and most patients typically require approximately 8 treatments to achieve an adequate final result that they are happy with.




Should I take any precautions throughout my laser hair removal treatments?


We highly recommend that you ensure you avoid UV and sun exposure for at least six weeks prior to your laser hair removal and two weeks following. This is because the laser is attracted to the dark pigment in the hair follicle called melanin. When being exposed to UV and sun exposure including direct sunlight and sunbeds this causes an increase of melanin in your skin and this could lead to the laser being attracted to your skin over the hair follicle and may lead to side effects such as hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. It is also important that you wait for any tanned skin to fade before beginning your laser hair removal treatments.

Please do not pluck or wax before or after the treatment as mentioned above. Do not bleach the hairs as the laser can only treat dark pigmented hair.




IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Please read before attending a laser appointment at Allure Aesthetics Ltd.


Avoid any tanning. Suntan, fake tan, gradual tan and sunbeds are equally dangerous. Please ensure ALL traces of false tan are removed at least 2-3 weeks before your appointment including appointments for test patches, unfortunately if any tan is found on or within boundaries of treated areas, we will be unable to proceed with your appointment and that session will be forfeited.

If you need to reschedule your appointment due to tan being present, we require 48 hours’ notice to avoid any late cancellation charges.

If you have been exposed to the sun or actively tanning yourself a new test patch will be required 6 weeks after your last exposure day or until your tan has faded before we can resume with treatment. Please keep in mind while being exposed to the sun that this will delay your treatment and where possible we suggest to keep treated areas covered with a white towel.

Avoid waxing or plucking before laser hair removal as this will interrupt the hair cycle.

Do not bleach your hair. The laser is attracted to Melanin (pigmentation found in the follicle) therefore dark hair is only suitable for laser hair removal. If you strip away the pigmentation by using bleaching agents the laser will not be successful.

Clean the treatment area before your session. Don’t use any creams, body oils or moisturisers 48 hours before your session. On the day of treatment please avoid wearing make-up on facials treatments or deodorant for underarms.

Shave 24 hours before your laser appointment. Please ensure all areas that you are require treatment for are shaved accurately. Any missed areas unfortunately will not be treated.

If you suffer with ingrowing hairs, we suggest to gently exfoliate your bikini area 3-4 days before your session. Don’t leave it to the last day or after you shaved. Otherwise, it might irritate your skin.

Wear loose clothes for your treatment. Make sure your underwear is not too tight. Please wear light/white underwear.

If you have a low pain threshold, you can take a mild pain reliever before your session (not Ibuprofen)

There may be times when your sessions fall on your monthly cycle, this is absolutely fine, this doesn’t affect your treatment. If you are more comfortable to wear a tampon along to your appointment please do so.

Most importantly, relax, you’re in safe hands.
