The desire for silky smooth skin without the after-effects of razor burns or the repetitiveness of waxing leaves permanent laser hair removal to be the much more convenient alternative among the various hair removal methods accessible to men and women and is only growing in popularity.
Let’s break down the most popular laser hair removal treatments for both genders and what to expect for both your clinic carrying out the treatment and your client…
While there are some differences, a couple of body parts are particularly popular in both men and women. Facial hair and daily shaving do not only take their toll on men’s schedule as well as the accompanying skin problems such as ingrown hairs and inflammation but also affect women just the same. Especially the neck and in between the eyebrows being notably popular among men.
Treatment: Carrying out laser hair removal on your client’s face will take about 15 minutes, with the added bonus of them not needing to grow out their hair (it is important for any laser hair removal treatment that the area being treated is shaven for maximum effectiveness) and is, therefore, a quick and efficient process. For optimal results, it is recommended to have a series of 10 laser hair treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart followed by 1-2 treatments per year to maintain the desired results.
Undeniably one of the most popular treatments for women and is oftentimes considered the starting point for laser hair removal. The frequent shaving and resulting skin problems such as ingrown hair as well as discolouration leave laser hair removal to be a much more attractive alternative for your clients.
Treatment: Underarms respond quickly to lasers and treatment only takes about 5 minutes to make them feel silky, soft and smooth in no time. It is recommended to have a series of 10 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart followed by 1-2 maintenance sessions a year.
Back & Shoulders
While this area usually represents a tough one to maintain, it is, therefore, especially among men, a well-liked body part for permanent hair removal. Shaving, waxing, or some other hair removal method might not get your clients the permanent results they desire, yet lasers will.
Treatment: Depending on your client’s hair type, carrying out a laser hair removal treatment will take approximately 20 minutes. Up to 10 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, followed by 1-2 maintenance treatments per year are recommended to maintain your client’s desired results.
Chest & Stomach
Laser hair removal for chest and stomach hair can be a quick and easy solution for your clients. The fast growth of hair, the large surface area, and therefore impracticality of regular shaving or waxing present laser hair removal as a more convenient and long-lasting alternative for your clients.
Treatment: Carrying out a laser hair treatment on your client will take approximately 15 – 20 minutes depending on their hair type. It is recommended to have up to 10 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart with 1-2 maintenance treatments per year to ensure optimal results for your clients.
This area represents one of the most in-demand areas for laser hair removal in both men and women. Shaving or even waxing can be immensely painful and tedious to maintain a smooth and clean look down there. Therefore laser hair removal offers your client an effective, safe and permanent solution to unwanted hair in and around their private area.
Treatment: Whether your client chooses to go for a Bikini or Brazilian treatment, the time it takes is anywhere between 5 – 15 minutes. To achieve long-lasting results, 10 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart will do the trick. Combined with 1-2 treatments per year, smooth and hairless skin will permanently be attained.
The desire for hair-free legs can be a very tedious and messy endeavour that comes with the risk of damaging one’s skin. Laser hair removal treatment for legs presents a safer and more favourable option for your clients to achieve long-lasting silky smooth legs.
Treatment: While laser hair treatment on your client’s lower legs will usually take about 20 minutes, doing their whole leg will take up to 30 – 45 minutes depending on your client. It is recommended to have about 10 treatments every 4 – 6 weeks. For optimal results, 1 – 2 maintenance treatments per year should keep your client’s legs hair free.
Of course, the quality of the treatment and, therefore, the hair-free life you give your clients depends on the quality of the device carrying out the treatment. That’s why Laseraid only supplies industry-leading devices from the likes of Candela, Alma and Cynosure. So your client’s satisfaction and their repeat custom are guaranteed.
