when we compare laser hair removal with traditional hair removal techniques such as shaving, plucking, and waxing provide only temporary results. Some doctors do not recommend waxing for people with diabetes, varicose veins, or poor circulation, as they are more susceptible to infection.
Laser hair removal safely removes unwanted hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. The laser emits a beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicles where it is absorbed. The energy of the laser is transformed into heat. This destroys the hair follicle without affecting the surrounding skin. The laser beam cannot penetrate beyond the dermis (second layer of skin). This laser beam cannot reach any internal organs, so it is completely safe. After a series of treatments, the follicles become sterile, preventing further hair growth from reproducing. Hair will grow back lighter and finer with each treatment. Skin will remain smooth and hair-free for up to 6 weeks between treatments.
6-8 treatments are needed to achieve up to 90% hair loss. 2-3 maintenance visits per year are recommended. Laser hair removal is a much more effective solution

What problems do some people experience when shaving that they would not experience with laser hair removal?
Some of the most common drawbacks of waxing are ingrown hairs, infections, red bumps, and minor bleeding.
Hair that has been cut with a razor looks thicker because it has been cut at a sharp angle. For the same reason, it feels stunted as hair begins to grow back. A stubble can make hair appear thicker. Because shaved hair has a blunt end, and because hair is often darker near the root, there is a common belief that shaving causes hair to grow back thicker, faster, and more noticeable. New growth usually occurs within 2-3 days.
There are other downsides, like red razor bumps. This often happens because there are sebaceous glands attached to the nerve endings, which are easily irritated. Razor burn, this can occur when you press too hard or if you shave with a dull blade or with a blade that has been left open allowing bacteria to inlay.
Why You Won't Get Ingrown Hairs With Laser Hair Removal (And Why Laser Treatment Helps Treat Folliculitis, A Condition Commonly Known As Ingrown Hairs)
Ingrown hairs generally resemble acne and are distinguished by red, raised bumps that may occasionally flare or whiteheads. As hair grows under the skin, it blocks the pore and allows bacteria to breed, thus creating a pimple. The laser passes through the skin to the hair follicle, where the follicle absorbs the heat and destroys the hair and any bacteria.
Lasers are successfully used to target specific structures within the skin, without causing damage to surrounding tissue. This provides smooth, non-invasive and long-lasting results.
Why is the skin smoother with laser hair removal?
Processes such as waxing, plucking, tweezing, or close shaving can cause folliculitis (a skin condition in which there are inflamed hair follicles). This condition results in a tender red spot, often with an irritated superficial pimple. Using laser on the infected area will help the healing process and kill the bacteria in the follicle. . It is common practice for doctors to recommend laser treatment. It is the only medical way to treat ingrown hairs.
Laser hair removal actually destroys the hair at the root and over time will remove all hair growth in the treated area, leaving your skin silky smooth with no ingrown growths, scars or marks. Several treatments are needed that are every 6 weeks, patience because the final result is worth it. Remember to never pick at an ingrown hair as it will cause further infection and that could get quite serious.
How effective is the laser on larger parts of the body? (legs, arms) Laser hair removal is a technique that quickly treats a very large area of the body in a single session and gradually deteriorates the hair. Areas such as arms and legs are the ones that respond most quickly to treatment.
Winter is the best time of year to start laser treatment on large areas (minimum sun exposure). So by summer, you can be free of unwanted hair and those painful ingrowns.
Can laser hair removal treat birthmarks/injuries?
Melanin is what gives our skin and hair its color. Pigmented lesions are dark in color simply because melanin is abnormally concentrated in one area of the skin. High concentrations of melanin can be due to several factors. Some types are present at birth, but most occur with age or as a result of overexposure to the sun.
Not all birthmarks/injuries can be treated with lasers; however, some will achieve excellent results.
You will need a consultation. Your therapist will examine the area you wish to treat and provide you with an evaluation and expected success of the treatment.
I have a hormonal problem. Would the laser work for me?
Women experiencing PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) may experience slower results unless they receive medical support along with laser treatment. However, after 4-6 treatments, they will notice a dramatic reduction. Your hair will grow slower and much finer.
These clients can achieve excellent results all over their bodies, but to remain hair-free on their faces, "touch-up" treatments are required every three (3) to six (6) months for a lifetime.
Why is it a great option for men?
Laser hair removal can certainly be beneficial for men. Unwanted back hair, coarse or excessive chest hair can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. More and more men with excess hair feel self-conscious in our "Australian beach culture" and therefore seek more effective and long-lasting hair removal solutions. There are many solutions that are available in the market today. However, tweezing or waxing can be impractical and often leads to unattractive breakouts or infections. Shaving leads to the rapid reappearance of stubble. Laser hair removal is becoming more and more popular. The treatment is simple and effective and offers long-term results. Men who don't like to shave can also benefit from laser facial hair removal. As well as eliminating the need to shave every day, it will also prevent irritation and the development of folliculitis, in which one or more hair follicles become inflamed. We recommend at least 6-8 treatments, 6 weeks apart for significant reduction, providing you are committed to your treatment every 6 weeks. However, if you want to achieve up to 80% hair loss, you may need 12-15 treatments due to higher levels of testosterone in the body. 6 weeks apart for significant reduction, providing you are committed to your treatment every 6 weeks.

Choose a genuine laser To achieve the best results, make sure you choose a genuine laser for hair removal. Soprano Ice emits a laser beam at a specific wavelength of 810mm. The energy that is used is much more effective and safe to destroy the hair follicle. IPL/SPL machines (Pulse Light Systems) offer a wide range of wavelengths and have a higher risk of damaging the skin at higher energy levels. These wavelengths only operate at shallow depth.
