Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a very popular and permanent solution for people wanting to get rid of unwanted and pesky hair. Before starting the treatment we at The Hampton Clinic believe that you should know everything about how laser hair removal works and about how safe it truly is. The Hampton Clinic would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have on laser hair removal on our website.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

This is the number one question people tend to ask when talking about laser hair removal, which we completely understand. There do not appear to be any long term health risks associated with the procedure. The procedure is a permanent solution to your hair removal problems and is safe to use.


Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

For a couple of days after your treatment the skin may be slightly red and tender to the touch. A cooling gel will be used during the treatment to protect your skin and lessen side effects. The treatment itself can take from a few minutes to over an hour, it’s all dependent on the part of your body you are having the treatment. Our award-winning Soprano ICE laser uses advanced diode technology teamed with a chilled tip to deliver effective hair removal in a gentle, pain-free manner. 


Side Effects And Risks

There are a few short term side effects of laser hair removal but nothing to worry about in the long term. We have a recent blog post about everything you need to know before getting laser hair removal which will help you reduce these risks.

Laser hair removal damages the follicles of the targeted hairs, preventing them from growing back. The body will react to this by causing redness and irritation initially after the procedure. The skin may feel tingly and feel tender, all of which is completely normal. These symptoms should reduce after a few hours of the treatment. An ice pack or cool bath could help reduce these side effects.


How Do I Prevent Side Effects?

Preparation and aftercare is key. You will be required to have a patch test before your first treatment so that the technician can assess which settings should be used for a successful and pain-free treatment. Avoid excessive sun exposure before treatment, hot showers and exercise after treatment and leave the hairs alone after treatment. To see the best results they must fall out on their own.
