Laser Hair Removal for women
These days, laser hair removal for women provides the results any woman is looking for without taking too much of her time. This is so effective that almost 80% of female clients are availing of this procedure.
Is one session enough?
What women should remember is that excellent results depend on the hair growth cycle. This varies from one client to the next which means that hair may grow at different rates. Multiple sessions are possible. To give you a clue, the upper body parts are usually treated after every 4 weeks while the legs (upper legs / lower legs) are treated after every 8 weeks.
Is protection needed during post-treatment?
The face is always exposed to UVA rays and this can have adverse effects on the face if proper protection is not followed. Ask the practitioner for specific instructions about protection especially when the treated areas are constantly exposed.
Is shaving important?
Yes. Also, shaving the right way is just as important. Shave 3 days before the treatment and shave the night before the session. The shaving that was done 3 days before removes the heavy hair while shaving done the night before means you’re going over the hair that you missed. There is a good chance that the client may have to book another session if the shaving was not done properly.
Can I get this treatment anytime and anywhere?
There are many beauty clinics around but finding an expert is a must. A person who specializes in laser treatment knows the best type of laser to use for your skin. This reduces the risk of negative effects.

3 Pro Hair Removal Tips for Shaving Your Bikini
Every client who is about to undergo laser hair removal must shave the area before the treatment. Shaving the the bikini helps in the success of the treatment by allowing the laser to target the hair follicles better. Removing the hairs will also prevent the fuzz from blocking the device. The hairs may also damage the device. If you’re not used to shaving the bikini area, here are 3 pro hair removal tips for shaving your bikini
Use a Mirror
Use a mirror when shaving the bikini area. You can stand in front of a mirror to get a clearer view of the bikini. You can use a marker, preferably, a white pencil for marking the sections that you want to be hair-free.
By doing this, it will be easier to remove fuzz on the skin, especially on the bikini area that is hard to reach. Using a mirror will help you avoid getting cuts, and will help you shave the right sections precisely.
Use Aloe Vera
Before shaving the bikini, dampen the area first and then apply aloe Vera. Get the razor work from outside to inside of the thighs, and carefully remove hairs. Make sure to remove any remaining hairs on the razor before shaving a new line. Take your time when shaving, and work one side at a time.
Shave One Side at a Time
Shave the area one side at a time. If you applied the aloe Vera towards the thigh area, get the razor and shave towards the labia. Shave one side at a time, and take your time. You can start be shaving the top portion of the bikini first. Then, proceed to the sides. Shave the labia area carefully and then the bum section.
Remember to never rush when shaving. Always take your time. Once you’re done with one side, remove the aloe Vera with warm water. Then, proceed to shaving the other side.
Why Use Aloe Vera?
Though there are other products that you can apply to the area prior to shaving, aloe Vera is the most advised product for use. It helps soothe the skin before and after the procedure. Aloe Vera is the only product suggested by laser hair specialists that can make the area less sensitive, especially for patients who are prone to bumps and lumps.
Thus, applying aloe Vera on the bikini area before undergoing the treatment calms the skin. You can apply the product 1 day before the procedure, but not on the day of the treatment. The area must be clean and shaved before going to your first laser hair removal.

Laser Hair Removal for women: No more
Shaving and waxing can both damage the skin. With continuous shaving, the skin gets in contact with sharp razors that can impair the surface of the skin. It can lead to cuts that may result in permanent scars. Shaving can also cause ingrown hair, which is sometimes irreversible. On the other hand, waxing may also damage the skin, as the skin together with hair is pulled as the wax is removed. It can lead to the formation of blisters, and may also result in ingrown hair. Plucking the hair from roots may also cause infected hair because the deeper part of skin is exposed making it more susceptible to harmful elements like bacteria.
All of this inconvenience can be avoided by considering hair removal treatments. Allow your laser professional to perform the procedure giving you perfectly smooth skin after a visit to one of our laser clinics.

Ms Bikini Ireland visits Havana Skin Clinic
Laser Hair Removal | Miss Bikini Before and After
Miss Bikini Ireland 2016, Jeni Assandey, just had her laser hair removal a few weeks ago. Due to her type of career, laser hair removal is more of a necessity for Jeni, than just a want that will keep her skin hair-free, and camera-ready anytime her projects demand. Now, let’s see what happened to Miss Bikini Ireland 2016 after completing her laser hair removal sessions at Havana Skin Clinic.
Before Laser Hair Removal
Miss Bikini Ireland 2016 has tried different kinds of hair removal to keep her skin smooth. She had undergone waxing, IPL, and laser treatments to get rid of her unwanted hair. According to Jeni, waxing was the worst when it comes to the level of pain of the procedure. She even described the pain level of waxing as being ‘closest to labor’.
Funny as it may seem, it’s true that waxing can be extremely painful, especially for people who have low pain tolerance. Thus, for Miss Bikini Ireland 2016, waxing just didn’t work. According to Jeni, she had laser hair treatments before, but that was a year ago. She wasn't able to go to her laser appointments religiously, so her hair wasn’t treated enough. After a year, her hair grew back, which made her decide to try laser hair removal at the Havana.
After Laser Hair Removal
During her last laser hair treatment, Jeni was extremely busy, and just didn’t have time for the treatment. However, the time she did, she said the treatment was extremely effective that she didn’t have to wax or shave her skin.
As Miss Bikini Ireland 2016, she frequently wears swimwear, which demands her to keep a hair-free skin. When she realized waxing just doesn’t work for her’, she turned to laser hair removal. As a public figure who maintains a flawless skin, and toned body, laser hair removal greatly helped Jeni in keeping her always ready for the camera. Havana Skin Clinic keeps Miss Bikini Ireland 2016’s skin smooth and hair-free.
When asked about what she thought about laser hair removal, Jeni said she thought her skin is going to feel sore, but she didn’t feel any sore at all! Jeni said the pain level was only 2-3 out 5, both for her legs and her underarms.

Is It Safe To Get Laser Skin Treatment On All Skin Colours?
Client safety and womens health is number one priority Havana Skin Clinic. With any medical procedure, safety is an important question. The type of laser used and the person handling the device for laser hair removal make all the difference in the effectiveness and safety of the treatment. The Lightsheer Duet and the Nd Yag laser are the two options for body treatments and facial treatments on dark skin tone. With today's advanced technologies, it’s surely safe to get laser treatments even if you have a dark skin. Here we will discuss the factors that make laser hair removal safe, and why Havana Skin Clinic can assure a safe and efficient laser hair treatment.
How the Skin Colours Affects the Treatment?
The laser works, when we perform the procedure, by targeting the melanin or the pigment of the hair shaft. Thus, the color of the hair must be darker than the skin. The thickness of the hair must also meet the ideal width that the laser can be absorbed by the hair. During the consultation, factors like the skin colour, if the hair is blonde hair or dark hair and the thickness of hair are considered to determine what kind of approach will be used for the client. For clients with darker skin, a nd yag laser is used as this device can treat all types of skin and hair.
When working with darker skin types, the most crucial factor to consider is the duration of the laser penetrating the skin. The duration is counted per millisecond, where skin type 5 (dark skin tone) is usually treated with 400 milliseconds. Compared to hair removal treatments on lighter/Caucasian skin that’s treated with 30 milliseconds, darker skin types need longer laser duration to reach the hair follicle when removing unwanted hair.
Device Used for Treating Dark Skin
The Lightsheer Duet is the technology used by the Havana Skin Clinic for hair removal treatments. It’s a very safe device because it offers a wide range of milliseconds for each skin type. To safely, and efficiently treat hairs, Lightsheer Duet can deliver the most appropriate laser energy that fits the client’s skin. The device is safe to use for all skin types 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Lightsheer Duet devices are the most advanced technologies available today.
Lightsheer Duet does not only deliver laser hair treatments that are safe and effective, it’s virtually painless as well. Because the technology has vacuum assist feature, it reduces the intensity of the laser heat, while maintaining its efficiency.
Today, there are tons of different devices that are available in the market. When undergoing a laser hair treatment, it’s important that you know what device being used for the procedure. Outdated technologies typically use IPL for laser hair removal, which are not very effective in treating hairs. Devices with IPL disperses laser energy on a broad spectrum and different wavelengths. Meaning, these devices cannot accurately target hair to produce permanent results, instead it may even damage the hair.
When undergoing laser hair removal, make sure to choose a real laser. The gold standard in laser hair removal are the devices that use a diode laser, which the Lightsheer Duet has. This type of laser can safely treat all skin types, all skin colours, and can target hairs accurately due to its ideal wavelength. At the Havana Skin Clinic, they use only the latest devices for laser hair removal. Equipped with a diode laser and a vacuum assist technology, treatments performed at the Clinic for laser hair removal are painless, effective and produces permanent results.
