The Laser Hair Removal FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) answers many of the common questions that we receive relating to our Laser Hair Removal Treatment.
Laser Hair Removal is a safe treatment designed to damage hair follicles and prevent the regrowth of hairs using light energy.
Our technology is FDA approved, providing a safe and effective treatment with minimal soreness.
In basic terms, the hair follicle absorbs the heat from the laser and is subsequently damaged beyond repair. You can find more detailed explanations of the process on our main treatment page and on our science page.
There may be some minor discomfort which will be less significant as you have more sessions. At VIVO Clinic we use market leading lasers. This technology minimises discomfort by cooling the area as it is being treated.
Results may vary but the treatment is proven to be highly effective when used on a variety of skin types (see research). During your consultation, we will assess your requirements and estimate the number of sessions you will require.
The treatment is suitable for most skin types and hair colours. It can treat temporary hair loss, as well more permanent types of hair loss such as male and female pattern baldness.
Inform your practitioner if you’ve used fake tan or if you have any skin complications which you think may be an issue. Out treatment is highly versatile and we can cater to most requirements.
When you compare the cost of shaving/waxing over the course of several years, Laser Hair Removal at VIVO Clinic will likely be a far more affordable option. Cheaper and less reputable technologies will likely cost more money in the long run.
No. All Laser Hair Removal technologies vary in some respect. We only use the most advanced technology on the market.
We encourage our clients to research the technology behind the treatment to give them peace of mind.
You may experience minor soreness, though this should only last 24hrs.
