What is Laser Hair Removal?

Want to experience the smooothest skin all the time, but hate going to the salon frequently? Don’t worry, because laser hair removal is here to save the day! It is a long-term solution to get rid of unwanted body hair so that you can say goodbye to those countless trips to the salon.

Simply put, when exposed to the laser, the melanin in your hair follicle absorbs its light, which in turn heats up the hair follicle. The laser then destroys the roots.

“̆But what about damage to the surrounding skin?”

Don’t worry, because it’ll be safe from any damage. Plus, there will be no ingrowths as well. Yes, remember those painfully annoying bumps on your skin that usually pop up after a waxing session? You won’t see any of them after your laser treatment for hair reduction.

Thanks to the cutting edge technology it uses, just a few sessions of laser treatment for hair removal will give you the skin you’ve always desired.

Also, you’ll end up saving a lot, because the prices are pretty affordable when compared to the innumerable trips you would otherwise be taking to the salon.

What Technology Does Laser Hair Removal Work On?

The ‘cutting-edge’ part of its technology might have made you think that it’s too complex a process to understand, but to be honest, it’s actually pretty simple, yet so effective. At the heart of it is the first of its kind quadruple wavelength laser, a combination of 4 wavelengths - 755+810+940+1064 nm.

Why Choose a Long-term Hair Removal Solution?

Honestly, the question should rather be, “Why not choose a long-term hair removal solution?”

Because we’re sure that nobody likes to frequent the salon just a few hours before a big meeting, a date, or a night out with the gang when there’s already so much going on.

Add to that the waiting time, the unbearable pain, the possibility of a skin reaction, or the fact that the much-dreaded ingrowths might show up, one can’t help but wonder if there was a long-term solution for this.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Earlier we got to know why you should choose a long-term hair removal solution i.e. laser hair removal over short-term ones like waxing. But its benefits don’t just end there. Read along to find out what they are.

1. Super Quick. Super Easy: Unlike other hair removal methods, you just need a few sessions of laser hair removal to say goodbye to unwanted hair for good! These sessions are pretty quick and are done in the comfort of your own home.

2. A Whole Lot of Savings: Pain & inconvenience set aside, you’ll also spend quite a lot for your salon visits over time. So it’s really a no-brainer to go for a one-time, long-term solution, as the cost of laser hair removal is pretty affordable when compared to the plenty of salon trips you’d otherwise be taking.

3. Amazing Accuracy: Rest assured that as opposed to its counterparts, laser hair removal offers accuracy like no other.

4. No Extra Attention Required: Another benefit of laser hair reduction is that you can carry on with your day as usual after a session. That’s right, no going out of the way to protect the treated area. Go on and about your day like you normally would. Just remember to apply sunscreen when you head out, and you’re all set.

What To Expect After A Laser Hair Reduction Session

Just got done with your laser hair reduction session? That’s amazing! Wondering how the laser does its magic over the course of your treatment? Let us tell you what happens once you’re done with a makeO skinnsi laser hair reduction session:

  • After the laser breaks the hair down from the root, the dead roots come out in 7-10 days

  • So while it may look like you’ve got regrowth just days after your session, now you know that those are just dead roots that are coming off

  • Don’t worry too much about them, as they’ll fall off eventually within the next few weeks

  • Once you’re 2-3 sessions into the treatment, you’ll start to see visible results and get closer to the smooothest skin you’ve always desired!

  • That being said, continue to apply sunscreen to the treated area whenever you step out during the day

  • With makeO skinnsi’s laser hair reduction treatment you get up to 90% hair reduction after 6 sessions!

Recommended Post-Care Tips During Laser Hair Reduction Treatment

A typical makeO skinnsi laser hair reduction session will take approximately 2-3 hours for full-body laser hair removal sessions, 1.5 hours for half-body sessions and 30 to 60 minutes for single body parts.

Although you can carry on with your day with ease right after a session, we recommend you follow these tips for our sessions to be most effective.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment Results

Here comes the best part!

As we mentioned earlier, you might not see results instantly, so don’t worry. The dead hair roots will start to come off a few weeks after your first session.

As you get your subsequent 2–3 sessions done, you’ll start to see a significant difference as you inch ever so close to the skin you’ve always wanted!

That being said, our treatment will give you up to 90% hair reduction in about 6–8 sessions, with a minimum gap of 4 weeks between each session.

You may also require touch-up sessions later which will be done once in 3–4 months depending on residual hair growth.

Compared to other hair removal options like waxing & threading that are not only painful but also need to be done regularly for life while still giving you temporary results, laser hair reduction becomes the obvious choice!

Not to forget that these options still put you at risk of getting skin reactions and ingrowths. Well, with laser hair reduction you get none of that, just the smooothest skin!
