Our latest blog is taking a look at all of you unanswered questions in relation to laser hair removal. We get asked the same questions all the time which is why we decided to grab Caroline to finally put the record straight!
Luckily for us, she was more than happy to answer these questions. Let’s take a look at Havana Skin Clinic’s most commonly asked questions and of course their answers. 😉
If you have fair hair, can you have laser hair removal?
Q) If you have fair hair, can you have laser hair removal?
A)Yes of course, the pigment in the hair will absorb the energy. We also use the LightSheer DUET which is able to treat any skin type and hair colour.
Q) How many treatments do you need to have of laser hair removal?
A)No one can answer this as to destroy the hair, we need to catch it at the active stage of growth so it all depends on what stage of growth your hair is at each treatment. A lot of clients will find patches of hair left half way through the treatment meaning that they were at the 2nd or 3rd stage of growth during the other treatments.
Q) What is the difference between the lasers at Havana Skin Clinic uses compared to everybody else?
A)We use a diode laser called the LightSheer DUET by Lumenis which works by using a vacuum technology meaning that it can pull the hair follicle closer to the laser and suppress your nerve endings meaning that the treatment is more effective and less painful. With this machine, we can treat up to a skin type 6.
Q)What do I have to do for pre appointment prep?
A)You will need to book a consultation to ensure that you can have laser hair removal. This will involve a patch test and also some questions covering medical history and your most recent sun exposure.
Due to the advanced technology we use here at Havana Skin Clinic, we can treat you for laser hair removal if your last sun exposure was no less than 28 days. Older technology has to wait for the melanin to be completely gone from the skin meaning you could be waiting for anything up to 6 months.
