    Frequently Asked Questions

    How does light-assisted hair removal work?
    Light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.

    How is treatment carried out?
    The applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.

    Am I suitable for treatment?
    Most people are suitable for treatment. Best results are often achieved with clients who have fair skin and dark hair. Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Fair hair, however, contains less melanin and is harder to treat. We recommend a consultation with your clinician to ascertain if the treatment will be successful for you. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment.

    How does the treatment feel?
    Treatment sensation varies but is often described as “a flick of an elastic band”. No anaesthesia is required and most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable.

    What will I see after the treatment?
    The hair follicles are damaged by heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period, the hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.

    How long does each treatment take?
    Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes to over an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

    Are there any side effects?
    The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Unwanted reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.

    How many treatments are necessary?
    Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 4 - 8 weeks, depending on the area treated, until a satisfactory result is seen. The required number of treatments varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are needed for optimum results.

    Consultation Procedure
    Prior to treatment, a consultation is conducted in which a medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment. This is also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have. Before treatment commences you must provide written consent and a small test patch will be carried out.

    "I have suffered with really embarrassing facial hair for the past 4 years which has gradually got worse over time. I have tried almost every method to try and remove the hair from creams, waxing and threading to epilation, plucking and shaving. I previously had a course of 6 laser hair removal treatments at a beauty salon from a well known coupon/voucher site, but it never had any effect on the hair. I heard about The Skin Recovery Clinic and booked in for a free consultaion, on arrival I found the staff to be professional, knowledgable and the treatment room was very clean. I decided to listen to their advise and booked a course of 6 IPL treatments. I have only had 2 treatments so far and all I can say is "WOW"! I have gone from having to shave the area every day to now not shaving in over a week, all in the space of about 7 weeks. This has changed my life, I am no longer holding my hand to my face when I talk to people and my confidence has taken a much needed boost. I'd like to say a BIG thank you to The Skin Recovery Team for all your expert advise and can't wait to complete the treatments with you. Thanks."
