If you haven’t gone in for the bare legs trend this winter, then chances are hair removal has been fairly low on your list of priorities over the last few months. However, now Christmas is behind us, we’re on the home straight to spring and – believe it or not – now is the time to be thinking about laser hair removal if you want perfectly smooth, fuzz-free pins for summer.
You can have laser treatment for permanent hair reduction at any time of year, of course – you will notice a reduction in the amount of hair after the first session – but a complete treatment programme can take up to 24 weeks, by which time summer will be well on its way.
What does a treatment programme consist of?
Here at Dr Joney de Souza Aesthetic Clinic in Mayfair, we recommend between four and six sessions, spaced three to four weeks apart. This means that your treatment programme could be as short as 12 weeks, or as long as 24 weeks.
The duration of your personal programme will depend on many things, including the area you wish to be treated, your skin and hair colour and of course your timetable – in today’s busy world, many people find it difficult to schedule in an appointment every four weeks.
You will have a thorough consultation with one of our laser hair removal specialists before your first session, which should give you a good idea of how long your personal treatment schedule will take.
What happens during a treatment session?
Each session will last between 30 and 60 minutes. After the treatment area has been prepared, one of the laser hair removal specialists here at our Mayfair aesthetic clinic will pass the handpiece of our Cynosure Elite plus laser over the hair.
The laser emits gentle pulses of energy that are absorbed by the hair follicle, which is then destroyed, meaning it is unable to produce hair again. Clients have described the sensation as like a rubber band being pinged against their skin.
If you are keen to experience the benefits of never having to shave or wax again, why not give the team here at Dr Joney de Souza Aesthetic Clinic in Mayfair a call today.
