When it comes to body hair, everyone as their own personal preference and opinions on what looks good and what makes them feel confident. At Vitality Laser & Skin Clinic we get many customers coming into our clinic in Geelong for laser hair removal for a wide variety of reasons. Below is some things to consider before getting started with your first laser hair reduction session.
The difference between waxing & laser hair removal
The main difference between waxing and laser hair removal is that laser hair removal is permanent, whereas waxing lasts on average between 3 and 6 weeks depending on your type of hair. Another difference between the two treatments is that high-quality laser skin removal equipment has been created to be friendly to sensitive skin, meaning it can be used on all areas of the body and doesn’t cause irritation in certain sensitive areas, unlike waxing.
How long does it take for laser hair removal to work?
The amount of time it takes to achieve significant reduction in hair growth will vary depending on the area of the body that is being targeted and your own individual needs.
However, at Vitality Laser & Skin we aim to minimise the amount of sessions you will need to see outstanding results, by using state-of-the-art equipment and conducting a through assessment before we begin. On average it can take between 4-5 treatments over a 6-8 week period for complete hair removal.
Are all laser hair removal machines the same?
The short answer to this is no; all laser hair removal machines are created differently, but as a general rule, the cheaper the machine is the more chance there is for complications, burns and ineffective results. At Vitality Laser & Skin we use the medical grade laser hair removal machine Excel HR to ensure the most effective treatment possible for our clients.
