Can I get Laser Hair Removal If I have a Tattoo?
Topic: Laser Hair Removal

Yes, it is safe to have laser hair removal if you have a tattoo. However, it is unsafe to laser directly over your tattoo. The area where you have your tattoo must be avoided for safety reasons. Tattoos must be covered completely by the Therapist before treatment is carried out. The protocol is 3 fingers width away from the tattoo to ensure maximum safety.

Laser is designed to absorb into anything on the skin that contains dark pigment. Tattoos contain larger patches of pigment which will cause more heat to be absorbed by the laser. When laser is pulsed over the skin hair follicles are much smaller in size so the heat delivered by the laser will not be as destructive. This heat travels down the hair shaft and will destroy tiny cells at the base of the hair follicle. These interconnecting cells bring blood flow to the hair helping it to grow and if laser disables these hairs lose their blood supply and don’t regrow.

I have blonde hair. Can I still have laser?
Topic: Laser Hair Removal

Unfortunately, blonde, grey/white and red hair do not respond to laser hair removal treatment. The laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair and these hair colours do not produce any pigment so will not be effective.

How often can I have my treatments?
Topic: Laser Hair Removal

We recommend you leave a minimum of 4-8 weeks between your treatment times initially; this depends on the area you are treating and your hair cycle. As the number of growing hairs begin to reduce, we space out your treatments further to ensure we always catch the hair in the correct stage of growth, the anagen stage.

Why do I need more than just one treatment?
Topic: Laser Hair Removal

Your hair has three different growth stages. For laser to work, we need the hair to be in the anagen stage which is the active stage of hair growth. However, only 1-30% of your hairs at any given time could be in the anagen stage. Every time you visit for your laser treatment, we are killing off a certain %, i.e. the hairs which are in the anagen stage.

How does laser hair removal work?
Topic: Laser Hair Removal

A laser is a concentrated beam of light that we use to target your unwanted hair.

The light is converted to heat when it’s absorbed by the pigment in each hair, and this causes damage to the follicles where the hairs grow. This damage reduces future hair growth. You will be given eye protection while the treatment is being carried out.
