TPSL 1Like any other advanced beauty treatment, such as laser hair removal, you’ll want to do your research before giving it the green light. You do not want to go into treatments like this with any doubts or concerns. As we expect, you may have questions roaming around your mind about the treatment. So, here are some frequently asked questions and answers to put your mind at ease.

Is laser hair removal safe?

 This is one, if not the most, frequently asked question we receive, as when we hear the word ‘laser’, our minds seem to associate it with danger or warning. If you are undergoing laser hair removal treatment by a highly qualified and experienced clinician, your treatment will be carried out in the safest way possible, with all possible precautions followed. The laser makes an extremely powerful beam of red light which should only emit a slight warming sensation. Care is taken to protect eyes by limiting the number of people in the treatment room, and by wearing protective goggles during treatment. The strength of the laser will be carefully adjusted to avoid any burning.

Is the treatment permanent?

No, we can’t promise that our laser hair removal in North London is permanent. However, we can say that with continuous treatments, the hair regrowth gets sparser and finer and the time it takes for the hair to grow can become considerably longer. All results can be different depending on the thickness of the hairs, different body locations, hormonal differences, how black the hairs are and how well each person reacts to the laser.

How does laser hair removal treatment compare to other removal options?

 With razors for example, they only trim the hairs that are visible from the outside, meaning the hair follicle is still implanted in the skin to continue growing and potentially develop into ingrown hairs. Waxing removes the hairs, however, it can cause things such as redness and irritation to the skin. Laser hair removal treatment damages the follicle from within. A lasered follicle takes a lot longer to heal. This is why you get longer hair-free intervals than waxing, shaving, plucking, or depilatory creams.
