  1. What happens during the procedure?

The laser hair removal process is a simple one. First, your clinician may apply topical anaesthetic before treatment begins to minimise discomfort. A high frequency laser tool is then used to pass light and heat through the outer layers of the skin to the hair follicles below. As the pigment in each follicle absorbs this heat the follicle becomes impaired, causing existing hair to fall out and minimising future hair growth.

​2. How many treatments will I need?

As laser hair removal is only effective on hair follicles in the active stage, multiple sessions are required to target an entire area. Typically, you may require four to six sessions spaced four to eight weeks apart in order to achieve the optimal results. Looks clinics invest in advanced equipment so our clients require fewer sessions than many laser hair removal clinics.

3.  How long will my results last?

Hair removal permanence varies from client to client, and your results will depend on various factors. The majority of patients can expect regrowth of 25 to 30 per cent from each treatment session. The more sessions you attend, the more permanent the results become.

4. What else do I need to know?

Laser hair removal results can vary greatly depending on your skin type, hair colour and the area to be treated. Typically, the darker the hair the more effective the treatment will be. Some clients achieve excellent and permanent results after several sessions, whilst others may require touchup sessions in order to maintain results. Temporary redness or irritation around the treated area are possible risks, and skin blistering may occur in rare instances.
