Laser Hair Removal Benefits
At Tina O’Doherty’s our Laser Hair Removal system offers you the most effective hair removal treatments available in the market today.
Our Gold Standard Medical Grade Lasers are clinically proven to permanently reduce your unwanted hair by up to 90% and whilst results can vary from person to person due to hormone’s etc, most of our clients regrowth will be much finer and lighter in colour than before.
You are not alone if you suffer from ingrown hairs. When they become infected they can cause pain and embarrassment.
At Tina O’Doherty’s our Laser Hair Removal treatments attack the hair follicle, preventing new hair growth therefore preventing future ingrown hairs from forming.
Unlike other forms of hair removal, you’re treated with our laser when your hair is at or below your skin surface. This means that it not necessary to allow your hair to grow between your treatments, (like you do for waxing). This is ideal if you’re embarrassed about your unwanted hair as you will be safe in the knowledge that it will never be seen again
Other forms of hair removal such as waxing and shaving can irritate your skin. However, after your laser hair removal course at Tina O’Doherty’s not only will you be hair free, but your skin will feel silky and look super smooth and fresh.
In simple terms the answer to this question is yes however the results you will achieve depend greatly on 3 main factors.
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 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 we use the very latest medical grade laser system that is at the higher end of the market and is clinically proven to give you excellent results.
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.
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 they 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.
Treatments can vary from virtually pain free to painful and a lot depends on the 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).
The system used at Tina O’Doherty’s can be described as virtually pain free. It is important that you feel a slight heating sensation during the treatment as this indicated that the setting is high enough to destroy your hair follicle. But a patented cooling tip ensures you have a comfortable pain free treatment.
During your initial consultation a 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 also allow your therapist to gauge your reaction to laser prior to completing your first full treatment.
When treatment’s are carried out by 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 and raised bumps at the hair follicle.
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 area to be treated. A small are such as the top lip will take 5min. Full legs take approx. 40min.
Yes we offer a full service for our male clients. Popular areas are Back, Chest and Beard and we are one of the only clinics in Scotland to treat the male pubic and buttock areas.
Our new laser hair removal system is capable of treating all hair colours 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.
