Frequently Asked Questions
What are the side effects from Laser Hair Removal?
Following the laser treatment, you make experience temporary side effects such as redness, itchy skin, mild follicle swelling, irritation on the treatment areas, all of which are normal.
It is important to follow the pre-treatment and aftercare advice to receive maximum results with minimal side effects to the treatment.
SPF application to the treatment area following the treatment is requried as the skin will become more photo sensitive.
How long between Laser Hair Removal appointments?
Depending on your hair, skin type, growth rate and the area being treated, you will usually require treatments at 4 week intervals.
Each part of the body has a different hair growth cycle, so the hair loss will vary depending on what phase your follicles are in at the time of treatment.
What is included in a Full Body Laser Hair Removal treatment?
Our Full Body Laser Hair Removal Treatment include the whole body shoulder to toe.
Can I have Laser Hair Removal over the top of tattoos?
No, unfortunately, we cannot treat over tattoos with our laser machines. We can treat around the tattooed areas with a gap of 3cm as the tattoo will absorbe the energy rather than hair follicles.
Do hair supplements affect my treatment results?
Hair supplements can affect your treatment progress as they can stimulate hair growth. We recommend to not consume hair supplements during the treatment course.
Also excess protine in the body can also stimulate hair growth.
What is the aftercare for Laser Hair Removal treatments?
For 24 -48 hours after the treatment, it is best to avoid workouts that cause excessive sweating, hot showers, shaving, waxing, and plucking the treatment area.
Following each treatment use the SPF30+ prescribed by your therapist on the treatment area.
Avoid direct sunlight exposure of the treatment area.
Can I have my treatment when I am menstruating?
Yes ladies, your treatments can be carried out and you can still have laser hair removal treatment while on your period as long as the treatment is not in the intimate area.
If this is the case, please contact to rebook at an alternative time.
Can I have Laser Hair Removal if I am on any medications?
Certain medications can cause photo-sensitivity to the skin and this may affect the skin’s reaction to the treatment. These medications are but not limited to oral and topical vitamin A’s, antibiotics, and certain anti-depressants. It is best to speak with your laser professional and obtain clearance to have the treatment.
It is also best to check with your GP before for written clearance to have laser hair removal whilst on your medication.
After obtaining medical clearance, we are able to test patch you with the laser to determine it is safe to commence treatment.

We treat all skin tones with our diode Laser machines.
Our Laser technicians use the Fitzpatrick Classification scale to determine your skin tone at consultation and select the most suitable settings on the diode laser machine for your laser hair removal treatment. Please be advised that your settings may change throughout your course as hairs reduce to ensure optimal results.
What body hair colour can be treated with Laser Hair Removal?

The light of the laser is only attracted to the melanin (pigment) of the hair hence these hair colours cannot be treated.

Can you use numbing cream for Laser Hair Removal?
No, topical numbing creams are not safe nor effective when doing Laser Hair Removal. The sensation you feel in treatment is not felt on the skin, but in the follicle of the hair. Unfortunately numbing cream cannot penetrate deep enough to minimise discomfort that may be felt at the follicle. Please ensure that no occlusive creams are present on the treatment areas when undergoing laser hair removal treatments.
How often should i get laser hair removal treatments?
Treatments are 4-6 week intervals, depending on the hair, skin type, growth rate and body area being treated.
For the facial area, treatments can be done at 2-4 week intervals. Each part of the facial and body area has a different growing cycle, so hair reduction will vary depending on what stage your follicles are in at the time of the treatment. After each treatment hair is reduced hence it is important to complete the course of 6 treatments and at consistent intervals for best results. We recommend a series of a minimum of 6 treatments followed by top up treatments as and when needed.
Will all hair be removed in one session?
No, each Laser Hair Removal treatment provides a 10%-20% hair reduction. It’s important to complete the initial course of 6 treatments and at consistent intervals for optimal results. We recommend a series of 6 treatments at monthly intervals. Top up treatments maybe required for permanent hair reduction.

What are the Diode Wavelengths for 3D Trilogy Ice?
Diode Laser- Alexandrite
Diode: 755mm – Spot Size: 12x12mm – Up To 10Hz
Based on the Alexandrite wavelength being the shortest of the 3, it allows for the greatest absorbency of the melanin chromophore. This provides the best solution for the widest range of hair types and colour especially light coloured and thin hair.
Diode : 808mm – Spot Size: 12x12mm – Up To 10Hz
The Diode wavelength is very effective on darker skin types but is comparatively less effective on lighter finer hair. Its deep penetration levels offer best results for skin types 1-4
Diode Laser YAG
Diode : 1064mm – Spot Size: 12x12mm – Up To 10Hz
The YAG wavelength allows for moderate energy by the melanin chromophore providing the optimum solution for darker skin types
What is the minimum age for laser hair removal?
You must be at least 18 years old to have any laser or skin treatments.
Can I still get Laser Hair Removal if I am on birth control?
Yes – our Laser Hair Removal treatment is safe for individuals on birth control including oral contraceptive pills and IUD.
Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
One of the benefits of Laser Hair Removal is that the treatment is virtually painless, especially compared to waxing. or threading.
Each pulse lasts less than a second, producing a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel more tingling, but we can adjust the setting to make the treatment both effective and comfortable. Our machines use advanced ice cooling through the hand piece to reduce the heat sensation on the skin and minimise any discomfort.
Can I still get Laser Hair Removal if I am pregnant/breastfeeding?
We do not treat pregnant women with our laser hair removal treatments. Even though there are no conclusive studies on laser being safe or unsafe for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
