Laser hair removal treatment in Kent

Excess hair can be an extremely embarrassing thing for some women. If you suffer with unwanted facial, back and arm hair, and you’re unhappy with the results of shaving, bleaching or waxing, laser hair removal in Kent might hold a permanent solution to your unwanted hair woes.

If you would like to say goodbye to unwanted hair for good and start living your life hair and care-free then laser hair removal could be the answer. At Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic in Kent, we offer our patients from Ashford and Broadstairs, Maidstone, Ashford, Dover, Faversham, Folkestone and Thanet laser hair removal for the body and face.

Choosing laser hair removal

Laser hair removal treatment offers patients a long term and safe solution to their problem, and rids the body of unwanted hair forever. Laser hair removal essentially does this by effectively destroying the hair follicles within the area of application with a pulse of light. The laser is able to provide patients with long term solution without causing any damage to the body, face or skin, and works particularly well on those with darker hair.

Laser hair removal also works of lighter hair colours such as blonde and red hair but might not provide the same level of results as with darker hair. This is because darker hair contains more pigments which are able to absorb the laser, making the treatment much more effective on black hair.

Preparing for laser hair removal

Patients are advised to stop waxing, plucking or threading 2-3 weeks before undergoing laser hair removal treatment and switch to shaving or cutting the hair instead. This is because in order for the treatment to be effective the laser needs some hair to absorb the energy to destroy the follicle. Ideally patients should have at least 1mm of hair at the site of treatment in order to gain the best results.

During and after laser hair removal

Some patients report slight warmth when the laser is applied to the unwanted hair, but on the whole this is a fairly pain-free treatment, making it extremely popular at Canterbury Skin & Laser Clinic in Kent.

Many patients are advised to sit a course of laser skin removal of 4-6 sittings in order to gain the best results possible from the treatment. Patients might experience some redness or soreness to the skin following laser hair removal treatment and the results of the process might not be visible right after the first sitting, but this will improve over time with most patients reporting a vast improvement by their third sitting.
