Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Laser hair removal treatment will start by a first consultation which is important as it helps define the right treatment program. The consultation is free and without any obligation to proceed. During the consultation, the Epilium & Skin consultant will discuss the pros and cons of thair reduction process and the precautions you need to take before you have laser hair removal treatment.

First of all our skin expert will determine your skin tone through a clinical examination of the treated area. He will then examine the color and thickness of your hair to see if you are eligible for laser hair removal treatment. Then he will ask your medical history. Therefore he will check if any allergies and in conclusion report your last sun exposure.

Following discussion with you, the consultant will propose a realistic treatment program. This personalised treatment plan will contain the name of the suitable laser and approximate number of sessions. The number of sessions varies from patient-to-patient and the area you will treate. In addition, we will conduct a laser hair removal patch test on the area(s) you wish to treat.

An expert technician  will monitored your laser treatment to ensure the correct protocols and best precautions:

  • Your skin must not be tanned (sun, UV, self-tanners, beta carotene).
  • You must not be taking any medication or having medical treatment that has a contra-indication with laser hair removal.

Before the session begins, the technician will give you a set of goggles to protect your eyes from the light energy generated by the laser.

Laser hair removal can be slightly uncomfortable. This pain, although quite bearable, is reduced by applying an anaesthetic cream a few hours before the session. This cream should be applied on all shaved skin and will be prescribed by an Epilium & Skin consultant.
