Let's Talk Laser Hair Removal

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

In a nutshell… The laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle which stops future hair growth. The laser targets the colour in the hair called pigment, so the darker hair (pigment) the easier it is for the laser to hit the follicle. 

How many treatments do I need to have? 

Generally between 6 – 12 treatments in total with a treatment every 4 weeks for facial hair & body hair. Our laser specialists will be able to recommend the number of treatments for you.  

The hair follicles that absorb the laser will never grow back, however some follicles will go dormant and could reactivate with hormonal changes as we age. If you do have regrowth this will be dramatically (but these hairs will be lighter and finer). 

Why do I need so many treatments? 

Your first treatments will target the hairs which regularly grow, and then the remaining treatments will target (and most importantly) destroy any of the potential hair follicles. This will be towards the end of your course and give you the best results. 

Can you treat all skin tones and hair types ? 

At Deco De Mode, our answer is yes! We are pleased to say that our laser hair removal machines are from market leading manufacturers, and therefore we are able to target all skin types  

What time of year should I have laser hair removal? 

You should have laser hair removal in the autumn months, around October/November, as at this time it is less likely that you have got a tan from either being on holidays or catching the sun.  

Also, in order to keep your treatments consistent, we recommend this time of year as it is less likely that you have any holidays booked, and therefore you can keep your treatments more close together – having laser hair removal sessions every 4 – 6 weeks over the course of your treatment will get the best results. 

How much does laser hair removal cost? 

Our great value options give you the flexibility to design your treatment path with packages or single service prices.
