IPL Laser hair removal - the experts guide

If you are one of those people who are sick to death of waxing, plucking, shaving epilating or have had painful electrolysis.... don't you think it's time to consider starting laser hair removal?


I have been practicing laser hair removal for 6 years now, and I haven't ever had a client that has regretted switching from traditional, expensive, and mostly painful methods of hair removal. So MANY TIMES I hear just how fed up client's are of nasty shaving rashes and ingrowing hairs.


Now every client is different, and whilst our hair all has the same / similar growth cycles, the density, colour and quantity varies hugely from client to client. Knowing how to adjust the laser accordingly is a huge factor in the success of the treatment. This kind of knowledge comes from years of experience, working day in day out with hair and becoming a specialist in this field.


Certain medications and health complications can affect the efficacy of a treatment so it's important to know what you are doing.


Managing client expectations is also a huge part of the whole process as some client's outcomes will differ. A firm understanding of the endocrine and integumentary systems is essential. After 6 years of working with every hair condition presented, you get to learn a thing or two!!!


Most client's they will receive a 95% reduction, within 8 sessions (10 - 12 for men) however if a client isn't sticking to the advice regarding removal between sessions, problems can occur. I fully advise at each appointment when the client should be shaving next in order for them to receive the max benefits and to prevent them from having to come back for more sessions, however it is down to the individual to keep track in their diary when they have shaved last. In cases where we have minimal residual growth post treatment, no further charge is made after the 8 sessions we guarantee. (based on a client to client basis)


So is there just one type of laser hair removal treatment?


NO!!!


There are 3 lasers capable of removing hair. IPL (Intense pulsed light) Diode and Ruby Alexandrite


Here at the clinic we have a state of the art IPL laser. It is by far the safest, most efficient and pain free laser on the market. OUR laser is so efficient that you can have a full body hair removal session... IN UNDER AN HOUR. Yes ... UNDER AN HOUR. Again efficiency is key for most of our client's ... IN and OUT in a lunchtime. Minimal disruption to your day and sessions. I chose to buy ALL BRITISH LASERS when I started the clinic all those years ago. And HUGE INVESTMENTS in excellent devises has been so worth it where the end results are concerned. The majority of UK suppliers import machines from China.


So advanced is the IPL laser, we can treat the darkest of skin tones safely and effectively. Again, knowing what you are doing is vital!!! Laser can be dangerous in the wrong hands and there are cases upon cases of inexperienced laser treatments burning the client!! (Sessions will vary for skin type 5 / darkest )


Not all hair can be removed by laser. Vellus, white, ginger or grey can't be removed.The reason? There is not enough melanin in the hair for the laser to be able to do its work. Dark brown and black hair respond best to laser!


Now I bet you are wondering when is the best time to start your course of laser hair removal? Well depending on the occasion, weddings, holidays etc, you should plan to start 8 months before... 10 - 12 for men. Again, knowing your client is essential to a successful course of treatment.


Client's with medical conditions such as PCOS, hirsutism or menopause will require a specialist course of treatment tailored especially to them.


So if you're wondering whether you should give this a go, or if it will work for you, TEXT the clinic on 07813398647 and we can book you in for your free of charge, no obligation consultation. #THISWORKS
