FAQ's

Hair grows in 3 cycles: Active, dormant and shedding/falling out stage. elos Laser hair reduction is effective during the active or anagen stage, which is why multiple treatments are necessary to achieve desired results. The hair follicle absorbs the laser light and then converts to heat. The heat damages the follicle and destroys its ability to re-grow. Significantly less hair grows back with each treatment, ultimately resulting in your goal of permanent laser hair removal. This treatment may not be performed during pregnancy.

The term “permanent hair reduction”, implies that clients will achieve long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing in the treated areas. The amount of permanent reduction increases with the number of treatments. For practical purposes, most candidates will experience a 90%, long-term reduction in the amount of hair growth in any treated areas. Normally, any future hair growth is very minor and can be easily maintained with an annual touch-up laser hair removal treatment in Perth.

The elos combination of optical light and radiofrequency leads to greater results without the side effects commonly seen in light only based technology. Bipolar radiofrequency follows the principles of electric current, it follows the path of least resistance. The melanin pigment, or target, in the hair shaft absorbs the light and heat from the intense pulsed light, the radiofrequency current is like a ‘heat seeking’ missile that is attracted to the pre heated (from the laser light) target. The temperature of the hair follicle is raised to the point where it becomes disabled resulting in the prevention of further hair growth.

This combination of technology results in unparalleled safety and efficacy in laser hair removal. RF has no relationship with melanin in the skin, which is why it can be applied to all skin types safely.

There is a minor amount of discomfort experienced by some people but much less than with waxing or electrolysis. Any discomfort also depends on the specific body area being treated as some areas are more sensitive than others

elos Permanent Hair Reduction is only effective on hair follicles that are in the active growth phase and at any single time, only about 25% of hair follicles in a given area are in this active growth phase. This means that each laser hair removal treatment destroys a maximum of 25% of remaining follicles that are still able to grow hair. You should notice less new hair growth after each successive treatment.

Normally, 2 weeks to 3 months are required between treatments, depending on the body area being treated. This time is necessary to allow enough hair follicles that were dormant during the last laser hair removal treatment to reach the active growth phase. When enough remaining hair follicles have reached the active growth phase, the next treatment can be performed. Gradually, after enough treatments, there will be virtually no hair follicles left in the treated area that are able to grow hair. Usually, a minimum of 4 treatments over the course of 6 – 15 months are needed for satisfactory, long-term results.

Certain medications may affect your laser treatment if they are photosensitive (such as Roaccutane and Retin A which can cause pigmentation). If you are taking any medications it is best to advise your SKYN therapist so that we can ensure the best possible treatment results for you. Depending on the medication course, we may suggest performing treatments at least 2 to 6 months after taken.

To remain hair free, maintenance treatments are required for most clients with hormonal conditions.

Females who are experiencing Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) can generally achieve good results over the entire body, but to remain hair free on the face, touch up treatments will be required every 3 to 6 months.
