Is Laser Hair Removal Effective?
This depends very much on the skin and hair type of the client concerned (dark thick hair on light skin being the most suitable for laser hair removal treatment), but also on the efficacy and grade of laser being used for treatment.
At Laser Chic, we use Duetto MT Laser Machine, a medical grade laser system used by the NHS. The Duetto MT combines Two Gold Standard lasers in one machine for superior laser hair removal results on all skin types. It uses Alexandrite (the best laser for lighter skin) and Nd:YAG laser (the safest laser for darker skin) BUT we can actually mix the two lasers together for even better results. Many beauty clinics buy in cheap equipment which simply don’t deliver the results.
The best advice? Do your homework. In the laser world, bigger is generally better. If you see a laser or IPL which is small enough to sit on a beauty trolley – chances are it won’t be powerful enough to do the job. Portable or ‘home lasers’ are even worse. You only have to see how many second hand home laser kits are being sold on eBay to realise these machines don’t deliver the results. For fast, effective and safe results, choose a clinic which specialises in cosmetic laser treatments like we do at Laser Chic. Lastly, always ask what laser qualifications your laser consultant has apart from the basic training provided by the laser manufacturer.
