WHAT TYPES OF HAIR IS DIODE LASER BEST SUITED FOR?
Diode laser hair removal treatment is suitable for all skin types. This treatment is specially effective for people with lighter skin and dark hair as they require fewer treatments to achieve faster results.
WHAT SHOULD I PREPARE PRIOR TO HAIR REMOVAL SESSION?
– Shave the treatment area within 12-36 hours of your laser hair removal – appointment.
Before hair laser removal you should try to avoid tanning your skin. Tanned skin increases skin tone and darker skin absorbs most of the laser beam’s energy making hair removal difficult.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?
You will experience a sight discomfort and minor redness bumps on the treated area. There might also be slight swelling. The symptoms will gradually subside over the next 48 hours, in some cases it can also last up to 72 hours. It will take up to 1 – 2 weeks for hair to fall out.
IS 808 DIODE LASER HAIR REMOVAL EFFECTIVE?
Most people are able to achieve permanent hair removal after 3 to 6 treatments and results are permanent.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED TO ACHIEVE A SMOOTH SKIN?
We suggest 4-6 sessions to achieve effective and long lasting results. Most people experience at least 50% of their hair gone forever after 3 treatments and after 6 treatments, 90% or higher results will be achieved.
WHAT ARE THE AFTER CARE ADVICE?
The next 24-72 Hours
☓ No heat treatment (Sauna or Steam). ☓ No over expose to sun as lasered skin is vulnerable to direct sunlight. Apply sunscreen to cover that sensitive skin.
☓ No overly tight clothing as this might irritate the sensitive area.
☓ No swimming.
☓ Do not apply perfume or alcohol products or anti-perspirant on underarm (if this was the treated area).
GENERAL AFTER CARE
☓ Do not exfoliate the treated area in the next 7 days.
☓ After treatment, cold compresses can be applied to the skin surface.
Emollients creams such as Aloe Vera cooling gel or calming cream can be used to keep areas moist and reduce redness and swelling.
☓ Avoid irritating the treated area. This includes shaving, waxing, plucking and bleaching. Keep the area clean to avoid infections.
We suggest the interval between laser hair removal treatments is 4-8 weeks.
