The effectiveness of laser hair removal will depend on your skin type and hair color. Some patients may experience total hair loss with little or no regrowth. Some patients may continue to see some hair regrowth, though the hairs will be fewer and finer. Your consultant will discuss your expected results with you during your initial consultation.
This depends on your skin type and hair color. On average, patients will need between four and six sessions to achieve their desired results. Some patients will need more, some less. Your consultant will discuss the number of appointments they believe you’ll need during your consultation. You can book that appointment through our website today.
While it can’t get rid of stretch marks completely, laser removal may help make striae (stretch marks) smoother, thereby reducing their appearance. Lasers treat stretch marks by destroying the upper layer of skin.
While laser and Microneedling treatments are generally highly effective in removing stretch marks, the success of the procedure depends on how old and how visible your stretch marks are. A proper assessment is done during our free consultation to determine number of treatments required.
Post treatment, erythema or redness is normal, along with some slight swelling on the area treated. The skin may feel very warm for a few hours post laser treatment.

Your skin may appear red and tender after your treatment, a bit like having a sunburn. These symptoms last for a few days, though you may notice some redness and bruising for a few weeks this is normal. We recommend that you limit your sun exposure after treatment. Make sure you keep the treated areas thoroughly covered with sunscreen for the next several weeks.
You want to avoid strenuous activity such as running and cardio for several days. Exercising causes a rush of blood through the body. When this happens, veins can become dilated and expand. The expanding causes the veins that were collapsed during treatment to reopen which will cause the painful varicose and spider veins to reappear.
