Frequently Asked Questions
Treatments can vary from virtually pain free, to painful and a lot depends on the laser hair removal system being used. Cheaper and older systems can be painful and a topical numbing cream is sometimes used to help. Other systems can be described as being uncomfortable, (like the snapping of an elastic band against your skin).
At Tina O’Doherty’s we use the very latest laser technology that can be described as virtually pain free. A patented cooling tip ensures you have a the most comfortable treatment available today.
When you visit Tina O'Doherty's Laser Hair Removal clinic a consultation and patch test will be performed to determine the best setting for your hair and skin type. This is also an extra safety measure which will allow your therapist to gauge your reaction to laser hair removal prior to completing your first full treatment.
When treatment’s are carried out by fully trained/experienced therapists using well maintained medical grade lasers the risk of severe side effects are rare. Mild side effects that are possible include redness of the skin; raised bumps at the hair follicle; minor blistering.
Some more sensitive areas may feel slightly hot (like a mild sunburn). These can be soothed with Aloe Vera gel or a cold towel. There is a small risk on darker skin that your laser treatments can temporarily change your skin pigment. Typically, these side effects diminish within a few hours but sometimes it takes a day or two for them to totally disappear.
This really depends on the type of laser hair removal device being used and the area being treated. At Tina's clinics a small area such as the top lip will take 5min. Larger areas such as the full legs take approx. 40min.
Yes all 6 of our Scottish clinics offer a full laser hair removal service for our male clients. Popular areas are Back, Chest and Beard. We are also one of the only clinics in Scotland to treat the male pubic and buttock areas.
This depends on the equipment being used. Our Scottish clinics use the very latest Diode laser technology that is capable of treating all hair colours and skin types, with the exception being white hair.
White hair cannot be treated by laser as it has no melanin. Melanin provides your hair with its colour and diminishes as we age. By the time it goes white it is too late for laser to be an effective treatment.
In simple terms the answer to this question is that a limited number of laser hair removal systems are clinically proving to permantly reduce your unwanted hair by up to 90%. However the results you will achieve depend greatly on 3 main factors.
1. The Laser Hair Removal System used. Most people believe that all laser hair removal systems are the same or similar. The reality is that this could not be further from the truth.There are many different systems out there and they vary in cost from a few hundred pounds to over £100,000.
The problem you have as a client is understanding the difference. Whilst Laser Hair Removal is clinically proven to permanently remove your unwanted this is only true for high powered medical grade lasers that conform to the standers used in clinical trials. The market has been flooded by cheap imports that do not use medical grade lasers, (or, in some, any type of laser) and are simply not powerful enough or maintained to a standard that will destroy your unwanted hair.
At Tina O’Doherty’s Scottish clinics we use the very latest medical grade laser hair removal system that is at the higher end of the market and is clinically proven to give you excellent results.
2. Your Hair Colour. Different laser systems are designed to treat different hair colours. Some are better for dark or brown hair and others are better for lighter coloured hair (blonde or red).
Today there are now some high end systems that are designed to treat all hair colours. The hair removal system used at Tina O’Doherty’s is designed to treat all hair colours. It is important to note that no laser system can treat white hair.
3. Therapist Expertise One of the reasons that cheap imports and home laser systems are not powerful enough to permanently destroy your unwanted hair is because in order to use a high powered system safely you need a high degree of training which some suppliers cannot provide.
The experience of your therapist is also vital to ensure you get the best possible results. At Tina O’Doherty’s not only are all our therapists highly trained, but due to the fact that we specialise in hair removal they are very experienced. It is also our policy to allocate a dedicated therapist to each client to ensure consistency and maximum results.
