All Your Unanswered Questions, Answered
Can I wax in-between treatments?
The answer to this is No!! Waxing in between treatments is a massive NoNo! Does it do any damage? No, it can’t hurt you but it can hurt your wallet! When you’re waxing, you’re pulling the hair out of the hair shaft meaning that on your next treatment, the laser won’t successfully reach the base of your hair shaft and won’t be able to destroy it.
From what age can I have laser hair removal?
You can have laser hair removal from age 18 without parent consent. If you are under 18 and have a hormonal in balance which is causing a problem with hair growth, you can of course have it done with the consent of a parent.
Is laser hair removal permanent?
We have thousands of dormant hairs in our body which can be stimulated at any given time! You be shocked to know that we have the same amount of hairs on our body as a chimpanzee. Our hairs just don’t grow at the same time as. A number of factors can cause dormant hairs to be stimulated and start growing again including:
- Hormonal unbalances
- Certain medication
But don’t be mistaken, once we catch a hair at the active stage of growth with the laser, it AINT EVER COMING BACK. In the words of Taylor Swift, “we are never ever EVER getting back together.”
Do you shave before each treatment?
Yes of course. After we assess your hair growth at your consultation, we don’t need to see it again. A clean shave is a must for all treatments. When we apply the laser to your hair, it’s like putting a match to it. It’s going to shrivel up and cause you irritation. We also need to be able to apply the laser directly on your skin so that the energy is sent beneath the skin meaning that we’ll have better absorption in the root.
