Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Is laser hair removal safe?

When performed by Prescription Skin Care’s experienced technicians, laser hair removal is a safe, gentle and convenient way to achieve permanent hair reduction.

To ensure that you receive the highest quality treatment and minimal damage to the skin, it is crucial to choose a qualified hair removal expert. At Prescription Skin Care our knowledgeable staff provide you with a professional service and the most up to date information and customised aftercare advice.

Is laser hair removal permanent?

Laser hair removal offers the possibility of permanently removing a client’s unwanted hair. Most clients can expect to experience a rate of permanent hair removal of between 80-90%.

For permanent hair removal results, repeat visits to your specialist are encouraged. Between 8-10 treatments are suggested for the best, most long-lasting results.

What technology do we use?

At Prescription Skin Care you can feel confident in the knowledge that we use only the highest quality, medical grade laser equipment. We choose to use the Cutera Coolglide® and the Lumenis LightSheer® hair removal systems. This equipment utilises state-of-the-art technology to deliver the smooth, safe and permanent results our loyal clientele have come to expect.

How long does it last?

After your first treatment, your skin will feel smooth and you will notice a significant reduction in unwanted hair. The nature of our hair’s differing growth cycles means that it is impossible to treat all unwanted hair at one time. Therefore, it is likely that some hair will return to the treated regions.

It typically takes a series of 8-10 treatments to achieve the best results, which for some clients can include a rate of up to 95% permanent hair removal.

How many treatments do I need?

Every client’s experience is unique, and the amount of treatments required can vary from person to person. Hair typically grows back in the weeks following initial treatments, so it is important to attend your follow-up treatment sessions. Each time your hair grows back it will be lighter and finer, leaving your skin feeling smooth for longer.

We recommend that clients attend Prescription Skin Care for 8-10 treatments to increase their likelihood of permanent hair removal. For superior results, we advise a period of 4-6 weeks between appointments.
