The Laser Hair Removal Process
Step 1. Preparation
Before the laser hair removal procedure, we offer all our clients a complimentary consultation. You must shave the designated area 48 hours before the patch test and the laser hair removal session.
During the consultation, our experts will ask about your well-being and lifestyle to evaluate your suitability for laser hair removal. We may ask about prior treatments, current medications, allergies, and any concerns related to pigmentation.
Following this, a patch test will be carried out on a small section of skin to ensure our laser technology does not induce any adverse reactions. Once the patch test is successful, we will arrange an appointment at your convenience, maintaining a 48-hour gap.

Step 2. Treatment
Here’s what you can anticipate during the procedure with one of our skilled practitioners:
- Thoroughly cleanse your skin using an appropriate cleanser.
- Mark the areas undergoing treatment with a white pencil to ensure comprehensive coverage.
- Utilise a cooling device alongside the laser to maintain the area’s coolness throughout the procedure.
- Both you and the practitioner will wear protective eyewear for the duration of the treatment.
- Once the laser machine is ready, it will be meticulously moved over the designated skin area and activated.
- The treatment session will vary from 10 to 90 minutes, depending on factors like the size of the treated area, your gender, and the extent of hair removal desired.
Step 3. Aftercare
After the process, it’s common to observe skin redness and mild swelling around each treated hair follicle in the specified area. The redness is expected to endure for approximately 2-3 days, and the treated area might resemble the sensation of a sunburn for a few hours post-treatment.
To alleviate any potential discomfort, we offer a soothing aloe vera gel. This cooling gel provides a calming effect to the treated area, helps maintain skin moisture, and supports a smooth recovery process.
