Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal

Treatment overview

An effective procedure for the successful reduction of hair growth, the Alexandrite laser emits high energy light through an Alexandrite crystal. As the light passes through the crystal, a powerful beam, 755nm long is produced. 

Unwanted hair can be extremely embarrassing and inconvenient, particularly in visible areas. In response to a high demand for complete, rapid hair reduction, the diode laser was developed. 

The aim of laser hair reduction is to target your hair follicles, whereby the process causes damage to them at the base. This in turn inhibits or completely disables the follicles ability to reproduce new hair as rapidly as it was able to before the treatment, with hair growth becoming progressively more prohibited over an extended period. 

Following each session, the number of hairs growing in the specific area will reduce, until eventually after a course of treatments, the hair will stop growing altogether. 

Alexandrite laser hair reduction is considered a must-have for those wishing to acquire the ultimate hairless body, and multiple treatments are typically needed to achieve long-lasting results. A thorough consultation with our specialist team will enable a customised plan of treatments that will recommend the required number of procedures, with regular maintenance sessions advised to ensure the results last long-term.

Frequently asked questions

Laser hair reduction is a common cosmetic procedure, performed to get rid of unwanted hair on a long-term basis. The benefits of laser hair removal can’t be achieved without some level of discomfort and the treatment can be painful based on what area you’re having treated, as well as your own tolerance to pain. 

All areas can be treated with laser hair removal.

Scarring is a rare side effect of laser hair removal, as well as blistering, crusting or other changes in skin texture. Other rare side effects include greying of treated hair or excessive hair growth around treated areas, particularly on darker skin. 

It must be stressed that the risk of scarring from a laser treatment is very minimal and you can further reduce this likelihood by only working with an experienced & qualified laser technician. Alternatively the procedure can be supervised by an on-site specialist.

After laser treatment, you may notice a slight discolouration of the skin. If you have light skin, you’re more likely to have darker spots, whereas those with a darker tone may see lighter spots. Thankfully, such changes that occur after laser procedures, typically resolve within a few weeks or months. 

Some results will be visible from 1 – 2 weeks following the first treatment and will become more noticeable after each session. It may take several procedures to permanently remove hair.

The number of required procedures is likely to be between 6 and 8, depending on the size of the area to be treated and the body part. In 4 – 6 sessions, spaced about 4 weeks apart, you’ll see 70 to 80% reduction in hair growth and best results may require an annual maintenance session, for at least a couple of years. 

To answer this you will need to book a free review after your course is complete. The best time to book your review is 12 weeks after the final session on the body or 6 weeks on the face.

Most clients are aware from the consultation that the upper body has more hair follicles so it’s usually best to start the second course of laser on the upper body/face straight after the first course finishes for optimum results.

Yes of course – on the body! On the face we request you leave the area between sessions so we can closely monitor the progress for you and use the best settings as the hair can get very light and thin quickly. The body is fine to shave if you see any growth.

Yes you can just leave 3 days before the appointment as hair removal creams can make the skin very sensitive. You must check the night before the session that there is no hair on the surface of the skin you will be having lasered or you will need to run over the area with a razor!

We prefer you not to do this as we do like to see the regrowth on the face at each session. However, if you have left a bigger interval, been in the sun and can’t have treatment for any reason then yes you can bleach. The hair is shaved off at the appointment so it won’t affect your treatment. Please do not bleach 1 week before your session as your skin may be too sensitive to laser!

No, the thicker and darker the hair the better for the laser! If you have hormonal hair you will still see great results, but more frequent top-ups will be needed.

Do not use sunbeds if you are having laser hair removal as they can increase the chances of side effects dramatically! Fake tan can be used up to 3 weeks prior to the next session but must all be removed or we will have to rebook your appointment. If you tan in the sun you will have to exfoliate the skin you are having treated and re-book for a skin test.

We will not treat sun tanned skin. You must be at your natural skin tone for every session. If you tan easily, you need to be more cautious as it can affect the frequency of your treatments and therefore the results.
