LASER HAIR REMOVAL AT CLASSIQUE SPA
Cancel the daily dates with your razor and enjoy being hair-free with Classique's LASER.
Unwanted body hair can affect the way we feel, our confidence and how we hold ourselves in public and social situations.
LASER Hair Removal has been proven to be the most effective method of hair removal for use almost everywhere on the Face and Body.
Unlike other hair removal options of waxing, shaving and epilating the hair, Laser gives long lasting results.
With LASER the hair becomes finer and softer, meaning less visible with hair growth slowing down more and more each treatment.
How LASER Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal uses an intense beam of light that selectively destroys the hair follicles by targeting the melanin (colour) in the hair and thereby eliminating the root and blood flow to the hair at the base of the hair follicle.
The hair follicle must be targeted at a specific time during its growth cycle to prevent the hair from returning. As individual hairs could be in different parts of the hair growth cycle at any one time, you will need to devise a treatment plan including a series of treatments to see long-lasting results.
Benefits of LASER Hair Removal
Reduce hair, permanently:
Laser hair removal offers a permanent reduction can achieve reduction of up to 90%. Any hair that does grow back will be finer, lighter and softer, with the additional benefit of smoother skin.
No more ingrown hairs:
Laser hair removal vastly reduces the need for shaving and waxing, so you can say goodbye to ingrown hairs, shaving rash and stubble.
Save time and money:
Invest in a course of laser hair removal and you may never have to wax or shave again – saving time and money in the long run.
Improve skin tone and texture:
Say goodbye to pigmentation and uneven skin left behind after constant shaving or waxing.
What Skin Types Can Laser Hair Removal Be Used On?
We are pleased to be able to treat any skin type, ranging from very fair to very dark. Our lasers can be adjusted to work with any hair and skin combination, provided that there is enough pigment in the hair (i.e. it is dark enough to attract the laser.) We will talk you through the changes for you should you have darker skin tone.
Laser Hair Removal Practitioners and Safety
At Classique, all of our practitioners are certified in laser safety training.
A skin test is always carried out before starting treatment in any area; this is to ensure your skin is suitable and to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable in receiving the treatments.
All of our technicians are female and have seen many clients over the years and understand the sensitivity some clients may feel regarding certain areas of the body. However, all of our technicians have a lot of experience and will ensure to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
How Often Should I Get The Laser Treatments Done?
Treatment sessions should be no less tan 4 weeks apart. The appointment frequencies range between 4-8 weeks and will be discussed during your consultation phase.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will You Need?
Usually between 8 sessions will get you up to 80% reduction of hair growth, this is mostly dependent on the area. For instance, lower legs usually require 8 sessions whereas the face requires 16-30 and sometimes more; this all varies depending on the hair growth cycle and where you are during your cycle when we begin treatments. All areas need top-up sessions to finish the areas off these will be discussed as your sessions progress.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
There can be some mild discomfort during laser hair removal treatment but it is often described as having an elastic band pinged against the skin.
The heat only hits the hair not the entire skin like waxing does, so most clients find laser a lot less painful and faster per session than waxing! As we destroy more hair it will become less painful! Each person has a different level of pain tolerance and this is why we have our FREE Consultations so you can feel the laser and we can see how you are feeling at each stage.
How Long Does A Laser Treatment Take?
This varies depending on what area of the body you are having treated. Treatment sessions are usually similar time to same area of waxing treatments.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Most clients will get up to 80 % hair reduction with the recommended course and top up treatments as long as the interval is maintained.
Why Is My Hair Still Growing After Laser hair Removal Treatment?
Immediately after one laser treatment, the hair still sits inside the follicles and then over the course of around 2 weeks, the hairs push out the follicles as if still growing, but then they shed out the follicles completely.
If the hair is still growing after your recommended package, you would need to follow up with top-up treatments to weaken further the hairs' roots and the environment that grows them. Laser hair removal is not always 100% everything gone forever, so top-ups are recommended for the finer remaining hairs.
Can I Shave Between Treatments?
Yes of course on the body! On the face we request you leave the area between sessions so we can closely monitor the progress for you and use the best settings as the hair can get very light and thin quickly. The body is fine to shave if you see any growth.
Why Do I Have To Shave Prior To Treatment?
In some cases, we ask clients not to shave a particular area so we can see where the specific hair growth is. We would then shave it off at the clinic, but in most cases, we require all clients to fully shave the area to be treated as the laser needs the full focus of its energy right through the hair follicles and also needs to impact the bulb of the hairs. If the hair is on the skin's surface, it is not suitable to treat over that hair without shaving as it is less effective, more of a risk to the skin, and it will be much more painful for the client.
My Hair is Really Dark and Thick, Will I Need More Sessions?
No, the thicker and darker the hair the better for laser! If you have hormonal hair you will still see great results, but more frequent top-ups will be needed.
Can I Tan Between Sessions?
Do not use sunbeds if you are having laser hair removal it can increase chances of side effects dramatically! Fake tan can be used up to 3 weeks prior to the next session but must all be removed or we will have to rebook your appointment. If you tan in the sun you will have to exfoliate the skin you are having treated and re book for a skin test.
We will not treat sun tanned skin. You must be at your natural skin tone for every session. If you tan easily, you need to be more cautious as it can affect the frequency of your treatments and therefore the results.
How Do I Remove Dead Hair After Laser Hair Removal Treatments?
Between 5-30 days following the Laser Hair Removal session, shedding of the hair may happen & it might seem like new hair growth. However, that's not the case; actually, it's dead hair making its way out of the follicle. A washcloth or exfoliation could support the hair to come out quicker
