Popular Laser Hair Removal Questions Answered By Our Expert, Sarah Jordan
Q: Why did you choose the eLase Hair Removal System?
A: Because Syneron Candela has a widely trusted reputation and we believe it is the best! eLase is also the fastest diode laser platform to deliver safe and effective hair removal treatments on the widest variety of skin and hair types. This was essential because we wanted a system that could treat a variety of clients effectively.
Q: What areas of the body can be treated?
A: It can treat unwanted hair growth almost anywhere on the body, including: upper lip, cheeks, chin, chest, breasts, stomach, arms, shoulders, bikini area, legs and back. The only area we can’t treat is eyebrows as we don’t consider this a safe option.
Q: Is laser hair removal right for everyone?
A: Yes, both men and women can achieve permanent hair reduction on almost all body areas. It is proven to remove lighter coloured hair. To achieve a successful outcome on lighter hair colours, more treatments may be needed compared to darker hair colours. There are some medical conditions and medication that may prevent you from having the treatment but our team will be able to advise you on this.
Q: Does it Hurt?
A: Everyone’s pain threshold is different, therefore we have purposely chosen a system that offers a virtually pain free treatment option. The system cools the skin surface, as well as constant measurement of the skin’s resistance ensuring safety and comfort during treatment. When we did our training all the therapists where amazed how it wasn’t anywhere near as painful as they were expecting!
Q: Do I need to rest after the treatment?
A: Absolutely not, unless you want to of course, there is no required downtime following a laser hair removal procedure – patients can re-turn to normal activities immediately after treatment.
