How to choose a laser hair removal clinic that meets your needs

Friday, April 21st, 2017

When undertaking laser hair removal for the first time it can often be difficult to decide which clinic to have the treatments at. With many new places cropping up claiming to be the best, it is important to look at several factors before committing to start treatments.
Price is often the biggest consideration but it is important to look at other criteria such as licensing and qualifications, how long the laser clinic has been in business and the type of equipment they use.

To start with, let’s look at prices. Many laser hair removal clinics are currently offering voucher deals at very low cost which at first glance seems too good to be true. The sad fact is it often is. The large volume of vouchers sold often means they will be booked out for months and will be unable to fit you in. A lot of businesses also go under due to the lack of steady income after the voucher promotion and leave many unsatisfied customers in their wake.

Price is usually a good indicator of the technology they use as the true medical grade lasers will be a much bigger financial outlay then an IPL machine that the local beauty salon uses, which is reflected in the end result. The more effective the technology, the less treatments are usually required.
Look for places that offer laser hair removal package deals as this can be a way to save money without compromising on quality and results. Most packages will include a discount or free treatments which makes it much more affordable.

Licensing and qualifications is also very important to consider. Making sure they have the correct licenses for the technology on display can be very reassuring.
As a licensed laser hair removal operator they will have had to undertake many hours of supervised training, theoretical studies and a laser safety officer test to qualify. This will mean you get a safer treatment and ultimately better results as they will be more experienced in performing the treatments on many different skin and hair types.

It is good to check how long the laser hair removal business has been around. Chances are if they are a long standing company they have proven their ability to keep their customers happy and are well established within the marketplace. If they are only relatively new it’s harder to determine if the business is stable and if they will be around to see you through the whole course of laser hair removal treatments.

Make sure you consider all these points equally before starting laser hair removal treatments. That way you can be assured of the quality, safety and effectiveness of the treatments and achieve the best results possible.

How to Banish Ingown Hairs with Laser Hair Removal

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

For many, the changing of the seasons and the warmer weather can evoke happiness, while for others it instills dread as they have to once again tackle hair removal in preparation for the beach.

Though most people will continue to remove hair during the cooler months, as the summer comes the frequency of having to de-fuzz the skin increase, often aggravating side effects such as ingrown hairs, shaving rash and irritation. These side effects can make the area look unsightly, feel sore and in the case of severe ingrown hairs can lead to scarring.

Hair normally grows through the skin and causes no problems but in some cases it curves back under the surface causing irritation, redness and sometimes infection as the body tries to remove the ‘foreign object’.

But fear not, there is a solution for ingrown hairs called laser hair removal. Known by several different names including permanent hair reduction or laser hair removal this technology is rapidly growing in popularity as people discover just how effective it can be.

Laser selectively targets the colour found in hair follicles called melanin so it will be effective at treating both normal follicles and those that have ingrown hairs. Hairs in the active stage of growth will be destroyed and less hair will return with each treatment, making it a great long term hair removal option.

Instead of putting up with unsightly hair, bumps and rashes try laser hair removal to remove the hair and keep your skin looking clear and smooth this summer.
