You may have caught some of my snaps during the week when I spoke about my journey of laser hair removal with Therapie clinic. Being a brunette, hair removal has always been a nuisance for me, in particular re-growth. Shaving has constantly left me with nips or cuts while waxing caused in grown hairs. In actual fact it’s been a bit of a confidence thing too – especially when going on holidays or putting on a bikini. Having heard a lot about laser hair removal I initially went for my consultation to see what it was all about. Having laser hair removal explained to me, it all sounded pretty straight forward so I decided to give it a shot! I’ve been attending Therapie in The Square, Tallaght. So here are some of the most common questions I get asked!
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal works by putting pulses of laser onto the skin to kill off the hair follicle. The machines used in Therapie clinic were recently upgraded to medical grade which has helped to ensure greater results.
Can you shave in between sessions?
Yes, thankfully you can continue as normal with hair removal in between sessions. Over time and as your sessions go on you will notice hair growth is reduced and softer, making hair removal as a whole a lot easier.
Does it hurt?
No, you will feel a slight sensation while the heat of laser works but it is over as quick as it’s done.
Aftercare, what do I do?
Aftercare is simple, just apply some of the aloe vera gel provided onto the skin and go about your day!
How long does it take?
So I opted to have bikini and underarms done, in total the appointment takes about 15-20 mins. For such a short time, the results are very effective!
Before laser hair removal you are advised not to have any fake tan on or near the area, this is to ensure optimum results and so the laser can penetrate and reach right to the hair follicle. Laser hair removal at Therapie clinic is done every 6 weeks, this is to do with hair re-growth to ensure it has been at it’s optimum and blasted with some more of the laser at this time.
Therapie clinic recommend a minimum of 6 sessions of laser hair removal. I have just completed my 9th, I have no more re-growth to my bikini, like at all! The results have been amazing. I also can’t recommend the staff enough in The Square, Tallaght. I’ve constantly been asking 101 questions they have always taken the time to answer my questions and explain everything. If anything, it’s been a real confidence booster and I can’t wait to get back into my bikini this summer!
