Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is a procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to inhibit the growth of unwanted hair. The laser beam is able to access hair follicles deep beneath the skins surface. As the hair follicle and laser come into contact, the light energy is converted to heat, damaging the follicles responsible for hair growth.
Is Laser Hair Removal permanent?
Results vary according to the individual however, after repeated treatments, many experience little to no hair growth. As initial treatments are completed only occasional visits are required to further upkeep results.
Does hair colour affect Laser Hair Removal?
The darkness of the hair determines the amount of heat energy the follicle is able to absorb from the laser. The darker the hair, the easier it is for the laser to search and destroy. Hairs with minimal pigmentation are unable to attract heat energy from the laser. Therefore, we cannot perform laser hair removal on grey and blonde hairs. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to super lasers in the future.
What kind of laser is used?
At Glow Skincare and Laser we use a Nd:YAG Laser which has proven to be effective for our clients needs. The Nd:YAG Laser is known for its ability and precision in reaching even the deepest of hair follicles and is a choice laser for working with dark skin tones.
Have you heard of Microneedling?

BEFORE your appointment
- Please shave the targeted area for your appointment. Avoid waxing and plucking as these remove hair direclty from follicle, making it difficult for the laser to find it’s target.
AFTER your appointment
- Everyone reacts to laser hair removal differently. Your skin may become hypersensitive and so it is important to avoid heavy creams, perfumes, swimming pools, intense exercise until you know how you will react to laser hair removal.
