Is laser hair removal painful?
No, the most you will feel is a pinprick sensation or the feeling of a rubber band ping.
How many sessions of laser hair removal will I need for complete removal?
we recommend at least 6 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, sometimes people need a few more after the 6 to 'tidy up any remaining hairs.
How long does each session take?
This really depends on the area size, underarms are usually 15-30 min and lower legs could take as long as 1 and 1/2 hours.
Do I have to leave the hair to grow before coming for treatment?
We require around 48 hrs hair growth prior to treatment, the hair needs to be visible in order to absorb the laser energy. Once starting a course of laser it is prohibited to wax,pluck,epilate or bleach the hair. Shaving is fine.
What happens after treatment?
The hair may appear singed, it can take up to 2 weeks for the hair to drop out. We advise avoiding any perfumed products, swimming, steam, sauna or heavy exercise for at least 24hours.
Does laser tattoo removal hurt?
Yes it can be painful but is a very quick treatment, most people cope with the pain well, however a topical anaesthetic can be applied if necessary.
I had a tattoo done yesterday, I hate it, can I start treatment straight away?
Unfortunatley no, the skin needs to fully heal which takes around 4 weeks.
once the skin is fully healed we can proceed with treatment. Each consecutive session will then be spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
How many sessions will it take for complete removal?
This really depends on the size.colour and age of the tattoo, Generaly 4-10 for complete removal and 3-4 sessions to fade for coverup.
How much will my tattoo removal cost?
Again this depends on the size of the tattoo. We offer free consultations, where we can provide you with a price quotation. Treatments typically start from £40.
