Advantages of Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a popular and quick treatment. At EA Clinic we use the Soprano XL by Alma lasers that takes advantage of the In-motion technique, reducing discomfort during the treatment.
Benefits of Hair Removal
1. Treats excess or unwanted Hair
2. Minimal to no discomfort
3. Quick and easy treatment
4. When performed properly there are few complications
Laser Hair Removal Procedure
Before the treatment:
We will ask you to shave the treatment area day before coming for the procedure.
If we are treating the face we will ask you to remove your makeup or concealer. We will clean your face and then place some goggles to protect your eyes.
For all treatment areas we will apply a layer of water soluble gel on the treatment zone before the treatment starts.
Please note all patients will require a test patch before the treatment (48hours before for fair skins and 1 week for olive and darker skin tones)
During Your Treatment
We will place the Soprano XL tip on the area to be treated and we move the tip in a circular or to and fro motion.
You will feel a warm sensation as your skin is being treated will be applied. This complete process is then repeated until the whole area has been covered.
Laser Hair Removal Aftercare
After the procedure, you may find that your skin takes on a healthy glow immediately.
Depending on your individual situation, we will usually ask you to continue using aloe vera cream while undergoing Soprano XL treatments. We will ask you not to undergo waxing or epilation whilst you are undergoing treatment.
- Previous history of cancer, in particular skin cancer
- Pregnant individuals
- Those taking photosensitive medication /St John’s Wort or blood thinners
- Sun or sun bed tanning less than 6 weeks before the treatment
- Cold Sore in treatment area
- Keloid scar sufferers
- Very fragile or dry skin
To allow the laser head to glide across the skin.
The laser tip is placed in contact with the skin and the laser is fired as the head is moved across the skin.
It is relatively painless. Areas with darker skin may be a little sensitive but the cooling head helps reduce discomfort.
The area to be treated should shave prior to arriving at the clinic. Long hairs will take up the energy and prevent all of it reaching the hair follicle and thus a less effective treatment with a higher possibility of blistering.
Hair should be trimmed just before treatment for maximum transfer of the energy. Plucking and bleaching should not be performed.
Avoid epilation and waxing 4 weeks before treatment.
Facial treatments can take as little as 10 minutes as opposed to both legs or an entire back that take approximately 1 to 2 hours.
Only hair in the growth phase are responsive to lasering. Hair number in this phase varies from 10% -70% dependant on the body site as does the lengths of the growth cycles. The majority of patients without hormonal imbalance have up to eight treatments to remove all hairs on the body.Darker skins and lighter hairs require more than the average number of treatments to achieve a good result.
Facial hair may require more treatments.
