Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

In January of this year the Healio Medical Journal reported that insulin resistance has been associated with hirsutism; a condition that causes excess hair and gives affected women a masculine appearance as a result. Unwanted body and facial hair is not a condition you have to live with. There is a simple and effective solution – a hair removal treatment from our clinics in Leeds or York that is pain-free and permanent.

Whether you have excess hair as a result of a medical condition, because of medication you are taking to resolve a medical issue, or simply because you’ve inherited it from your hairy family, our team here at Skin Doctor can help.

We offer laser hair removal in Leeds and York that will remove unwanted hair permanently and increase your body confidence. If you’re not looking forward to Summer, because you know you’re going to have to suffer the indignity of a painful waxing regime, or because no matter what you do, you always seems to end up with unsightly stubble rash, we can transform your life!

With laser hair removal, hair can be removed from large skin areas, as well as smaller, more delicate strips of skin.  But what’s more impressive is the fact that the hair regrowth will be reduced by up to 80! You’ll achieve smooth, hair free skin with minimal effort!

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

During your hair removal treatment, our laser machine will heat the hair follicles in the targeted area to a high enough temperature to cause damage, making the follicles unable to produce hairs in the future. The skin in the surrounding area will be safe. The follicle is the focus of the laser energy. It’s not painful, but you might experience mild discomfort. The sensation has been likened to elastic bands being twanged on your skin.

Our laser device can only target hairs that are in their active growing phase. This is why several sessions will be needed; to remove the hairs as they enter the growing phase. Our experienced practitioner will be able to advise you as to how many sessions will be needed, based on your hair and skin type, as well as the part of the body or face that will be subjected to treatment.

Laser Hair Removal Aftercare in Leeds and York

The skin may be red and warm to the touch immediately following treatment. Your practitioner will advise you of which calming creams you can choose and whether or not you can apply an ice pack for relief. You should avoid showering for 24 hours, loose clothing will help you remain comfortable, and if you go outside with the targeted area exposed to the sun in the days and weeks following, you will be advised to wear sunblock as your skin will be more sensitive.
