How Laser Hair Removal Works 


Before we delve into the many wonderful benefits of laser hair removal, it's important to understand how this remarkable technology works. Intense Pulse Light therapy has long been hailed as the gold standard when it comes to professional hair removal. The Zeolight laser takes things a step further by combining traditional IPL with radiofrequency technology to deliver quicker, safer, and more effective results. The steps involved include the following: 

Step 1: Before treatment begins, both the therapist and client wear special goggles to protect the delicate eye tissue from any light damage.  At True Medispa,  client health and safety is always our number one priority. 

Step 2: After preparing the treatment area and applying a special gel, the laser technician pre-heats the area with short bursts of light from the IPL component of the device.

Step 3: Finally, the Zeolight laser's radiofrequency is drawn deep into the dermis, targeting the pigmentation in the hair follicle and stunting future growth. The laser's energy forces the hair into its 'rest phase' and the current hair falls out. Over time, the hair growth will reduce in the treated area and the skin becomes smoother. 

Treatments are quick and relatively pain-free. While some clients describe it like a ping of an elastic band or a pin prick, others can happily relax during treatments without feeling too much discomfort.  

How Many Laser Sessions Will You Need?

The thickness of your hair and the specific area being treated will determine how many laser sessions you need to completely remove the hair. Generally, you'll need between 2 - 6 treatments spaced 1 month apart. During your consultation, we can also advise you on the duration between treatments to achieve the best results. 

To get perfectly smooth skin for summer, it's best to start your laser hair removal journey as soon as possible. If you're ready to get your skin summer-ready, find out more here

Preparation Before Laser Hair Removal

A few at-home preparation skills before your laser hair removal appointment can ensure the best results. We advise that clients stop plucking or waxing the area for 4-6 weeks before the appointment, as the treatment needs to find the hair roots to be effective. We also need clients to shave the area 24 hours before treatment and avoid any sun. If you're on any medications, let our consultants know and we will advise or adjust the treatment plan accordingly.
