Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe, painless way of permanently freeing yourself from the chore of shaving, waxing, and plucking.

Your experienced team at Refine Medical Aesthetics use the state-of-the-art Vectus aesthetic laser platform to treat hair follicles and stop new hair from growing so you can be confident that you’ll have smooth, hairless skin for good.

How does laser hair removal work?

The laser in the Vectus platform uses light energy to isolate and destroy the cells in the skin follicles that produce new hairs. Once destroyed, these hair-generating cells can’t grow back, so hair loss is permanent.

Laser hair removal is suitable for use on the:

  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini area

The Vectus laser destroys hair follicles without damaging any other tissues, so it’s perfect for use on large areas of the body. Vectus is also safe for all skin types.

What happens during laser hair removal treatment?

Laser hair removal requires no special preparation on your part, simply turn up at Refine Medical Aesthetics for your session. An average Vectus laser hair removal session takes around 30 minutes or less, and you can carry on with your day as normal afterward.

The laser treatment generally causes little if any discomfort. Some patients feel a slight tingle during treatment, while others report feeling a sensation like a rubber band snapping on their skin, but you shouldn’t feel any pain.

How soon will I see the results of laser hair removal treatment?

You should notice a reduction in the density of hair growth after the first treatment. However, most patients need multiple treatments to achieve maximum hair reduction, typically between three and six treatments for the best results.

This is because the laser only works on hairs that are actively growing, and there’s bound to be hair in the treatment area that isn’t in the growing stage. Therefore, you need to attend several sessions to make sure every hair is caught during a growth stage.

Laser hair removal is the ideal solution to the problem of unwanted hair, so if you’d like to have permanently smooth, hair-free skin, call Refine Medical Aesthetics today to schedule a consultation, or book an appointment online.
