Laser Hair Removal

Keratin is a special tough protein that makes up hair that grows all over our body from follicles in the dermis.  A hair follicle helps the hair attach itself to our skin, and the hair is nourished with hormones that modify hair growth and structure at different stages of our life. The hormones determine where hair grows on our body, particularly after puberty. While hair on some parts of our body, such as on our head, is desirable, hair growth on other parts of our body, such as on our arms, underarms, back, and legs, might appear unappealing for some. Although excessive hair growth does not pose any health concern, it could nonetheless be a cosmetic concern for some if unwanted hair is growing on some parts of the body. Undesirable hair growth on parts such as the back or legs might cause those who are more self-conscious about their appearance to develop issues related to lower self-esteem.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment at Cambridge Medical

Advancements in medical technology have allowed special lasers to permanently remove hair from specific body parts while also discouraging hair from growing in that area by destroying hair follicles. Laser hair removal treatments are highly recommended because they are quick. They typically take only between 5 and 10 minutes for more compact parts, such as the underarms, and no more than 20 minutes if a larger area of treatment is required. Laser hair removal allows the removal of undesirable hair growth from any part of the body and is suitable not only for all skin types but also effective for removing both dark and light-coloured hair permanently.

Laser hair removal treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive in nature, meaning that no anaesthetics nor needles are involved. This minimises the risk of side-effects and reduces the downtime for the client, meaning that you will be able to resume your normal daily activities immediately after your treatment session at Cambridge is completed. Furthermore, laser hair removal treatments are painless, though some might experience a warm sensation caused by the laser over the treatment area.

It is highly recommended that clients shave hair over the treatment area a few days before the laser hair removal session for it to produce optimal results. Clients should also avoid plucking or waxing hair over the treatment area 3 weeks prior to the treatment so that the hair shaft is still attached to the hair follicle,  ensuring maximum effectiveness of the laser hair removal treatment. Clients should also avoid waxing, threading, or plucking unwanted hair over the treatment area before the treatment session. They can continue to shave after the laser hair removal treatment.

What results can I expect to see?

Most patients can expect a significant amount of hair to be removed over the treatment area. Future hair growth over the area, if any, will also typically be thinner, lighter, and less conspicuous. Results are quick and improvements should be visible within one week of the first laser hair removal session. Depending on the size of the treatment area, between three to five sessions spaced six to eight weeks apart will lead to a significant aesthetic and clinical result. However, the success of hair reduction treatments depends largely on a patient’s skin and hair type, as well as the skills and treatment insight of the doctor. It is therefore very important that a properly trained and highly experienced doctor is selected to ensure optimal and long-lasting treatment results.
