Why choose Nd:YAG Laser Hair Removal at Retreat Clinic in Staines-on-Thames?
Although laser hair removal is more expensive than waxing or threading, most people see a massive reduction in hair regrowth. At Retreat Clinic in Staines-upon-Thames we use a specialist medical grade Nd:YAG laser from Polaris, so you can be confident we will achieve superior hair removal results, whatever your skin type or colour.
Nd:YAG is the newest type of laser in use for hair removal. It works at a much higher wavelength than other lasers and provides a safe and highly effective method of hair removal on all skin types, light to dark. Nd:YAG lasers penetrate the skin more deeply than other lasers, avoiding damaging the epidermis and targeting the hair follicle directly. The treatment involves applying a broad-spectrum light to the surface of the skin where it strikes the hair shaft. The light is absorbed and the hair root is heated up and destroyed.
The treatment is relatively painless, with most clients describing the sensation as a slight stinging.
An average of eight to 10 treatments are usually required to remove visible hair and for optimum results, we recommend a course of treatments at four to eight weekly intervals. This will follow the hair growth cycle and catch as many newly grown hairs as possible. We will advise you of your recommended treatment programme at your initial consultation appointment.
Please Note: It is necessary to follow the recommended treatment programme in full to achieve optimum results.
Laser Hair Removal Aftercare
Immediately following treatment your skin may sting and feel hot. A cool compress is provided to help relieve this sensation quickly. We recommend that you avoid excessive exercise, alcohol, and smoking for a week after the treatment, as these things may slow down your recovery.
It’s important to avoid exposing the area to the sun or sun beds for at least one month after treatment. We’d always recommend wearing a hat and applying a SPF 30+ sunscreen on a daily basis.
It is normal for pigmentation to look darker for up to three weeks following treatment. The treated areas may feel dry, flaky, and itchy. Be careful not to disturb these areas during the healing period and, in particular, do not to pick at any flakes. Wash as usual, but avoid the use of:
- Retin A or AHA Products
