Laser Treatment FAQ
How does laser treatment work?
At Albert Park Laser and Beauty we use the Syneron laser system with a specialised handpiece which filters light from different parts of the spectrum. Different treatments such as hair reduction, hair removal, sun spot removal or leg vein clearance require light of different wavelength bands.
The laser hair removal hand pieces emit pulses of light into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat which loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair.
What are laser treatments like?
Your laser treatment provider will move the handpiece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, an audible tone and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the handpiece is being pulsed.
What should I expect after laser hair removal?
Immediately after treatment you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts between two and 24 hours and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
Treated hair will continue to appear for seven to 30 days post-treatment. This is the treated hairs being expelled from the skin. Typically, several treatments will be required to achieve permanent hair removal.
What should I expect after other laser treatments and skin rejuvenation?
As with laser hair removal, after rosacea, sunspots, spider veins or acne treatment, you will experience a mild sunburn-like sensation and possible minor swelling that can be soothed with a cold gel or ice pack.
