Laser hair removal uses intense, pulsating beams of light to remove unwanted hair. Laser hair removal can be performed everywhere except the eye area. The laser targets the melanin, or pigment, in the hair shaft and damages the hair follicle, which helps to stop future hair growth. Inflamed and bumpy skin caused by ingrown hair is often improved following treatment.
Laser hair removal can be used on patients of just about all skin types, although it is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair. White, blond or gray hair usually cannot be removed with laser hair removal since there is no pigment in the hair for the laser to target.
Although laser hair removal effectively slows hair growth. Several treatments are usually required to remove hair. For best results, you may need at least six treatments spaced a number of weeks apart. Periodic maintenance treatments may also be needed.
Laser hair removal has become so popular that it is often performed in non-medical settings, such as salons and spas. It is important to choose who is trained in laser hair removal to oversee the treatment.
Before treatment, you will have an initial consultation at Laser and Skin Studio. During this consultation, we will discuss your medical history and examine your skin. We will also examine the places you want the hair removed, the texture and color of the hair, and where it is in its growth cycle. A laser hair treatment plan and its related costs will also be discussed, as well as any associated risks.
- Protect your skin from the sun with a broad-spectrum (protects against both UVA and UVB rays) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day. Do not use a tanning bed. If you have a natural or artificial tan from self-tanning products, your tan must fade completely before your laser hair treatment.
- Do not pluck, wax, use dissolving creams or have electrolysis for at least one month before treatment. Shaving is okay as it leaves the hair root in place for the laser to target. Shaving may be recommended before treatment.
Before treatment begins, the targeted area will be cleaned. You will wear protective eye goggles during the procedure. The laser operator will hold your skin taut while the laser is fired. The laser beam will pass through your skin to the tiny follicles where hair growth originates. The intense heat from the laser beam damages the hair follicles, which stops hair growth. You may feel a stinging sensation or warm pinpricks.

What is Pigmentation?
Pigmentation is the colouring of your skin. It is a skin condition where patches of the skin turn into a darker shade of colour due to excessive presence of melanin, found on skin surface. Melanin is produced by melanocytes and functions as miniature umbrellas to skin cells to protect the skin from sun and UV damages.
It can also occur from hormonal changes, pregnancy, oral contraceptives and certain medications all can tribute to the increase of melanin in the skin.
How Pigmentation is treated?
Laser is a non-surgical approach for treating age spots and sun damage using powerful light-based technology to target unwanted pigment without harming surrounding skin.
In just a few simple treatment sessions, pigment appears lighter and your skin looks clearer and younger. After treatment, the pigment will temporarily darken, crust over and then will slough away to reveal your clear skin.

When this happens rapidly over time the elasticity of the capillary wall is damaged and a spider vein forms.
