Is the Laser Hair Removal treatment painful?

No it is not.


What can I expect to feel during the treatment?

A little heat but not anything unbearable. The therapist will always ask you how comfortable you are during your treatment.


How many treatments will be required to remove all the hair?

The industry standard is between 10 - 12 treatments, but this varies with each individual, some clients can complete their treatments at session 8 and some clients can take longer than 12 treatments.


Does the Laser target all hair colours?

Yes it does, but fine facial hair might take longer, grey hair might take longer. Courser and darker hair has a quicker response rate.


Can my hair grow back after having completed all the treatments?

Yes it could, again this is dependant on your individual body and any hormonal changes that might occur, examples would be hormonal medication, pregnancy, menopause, puberty.


When can I start laser hair removal?

From puberty, but there is a strong possibility that there might be hair regrowth if any hormonal changes occur.


Can I do Laser hair removal if I am on reacutaine?

No you can't, you need to wait for a period of 6 months after the completion of your reacutaine treatments.


Can you treat dark skin colours?

Yes the Laser Lux is designed to provide this service.


Can I wax once I have started the Laser hair removal?

No, you can shave.


Are there any side effects that I might experience?

Yes, you might, these would be

  • skin redness and irritation - redness and skin irritation are very common in laser hair removal. It is even more common if you are getting it done on a relatively sensitive area of your body;
  • change in skin pigmentation - you might also notice changes in your skin tone after the treatment. If you have a light coloured skin tone, you might notice dark spots on your skin. If you have a dark complexion, you might notice lighter spots on your skin. These changes are usually temporary;
  • flare of acne ;
  • swelling around the follicle - this is a normal reaction.


Can I have Laser hair removal whilst pregnant or breastfeeding



Can I have Laser hair removal if I have cancer or previous history of cancer

No if you currently have cancer. If you have had previous history of cancer, it would be advisable to get the approval of your oncologist.


What is the difference in technology between the IPL and the Laser Lux ?

IPL uses full spectrum light (such as light from a lightbulb) and although IPL contains some of the wavelengths of light required to remove hair it also contains other wavelengths that are unnecessary, making IPL diluted and less effective for hair removal.

Light from the Laser Lux is specifically designed for effective hair removal, without exposing you to any unnecessary light radiation from other wavelengths. This makes Laser Lux far more effective than IPL because it is more concentrated.


What is the time intervals between sessions?

Body parts need to be treated every six weeks, but not longer than six weeks, as this will delay quicker results. Facial hair needs to be done every four weeks.


Do you treat men?

Yes we do, but not any intimate parts of men's bodies.


Do you treat all body parts of women?

Yes we do.


Can you perform laser hair removal on ingrown hairs?



Are there any pre / post treatment requirements?

For effective laser hair removal there are a few prescribed criteria:

  • No waxing, tweezing, bleaching, threading or use of depilatory agents 4 weeks prior to your treatment
  • Shaving or clipping must be done to remove hair prior your treatments.
  • All lotions, creams, makeup and deodorant must be removed prior to your treatment
  • A post laser cream is highly recommended to treat inflammation and any irritation that might occur post treatment. This is available from Blue Bird Lipo Laser Therapy.


Is the Laser Lux FDA approved and what does this mean:

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) examines, tests and approved a wide range of items for medical use, including drugs and medical appliances. In the simplest terms, "FDA approval" means that the FDA has decided that the benefits of the approved item outweigh the potential risk for the item's planned use.
