Laser hair removal FAQ:

Q: What is laser hair removal?

A: Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser technology to target and remove unwanted hair from various parts of the body. The laser emits concentrated light energy, which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles, damaging them and inhibiting future hair growth.

Q: How does laser hair removal work?

A: During the procedure, a laser device emits a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles. This light energy is converted into heat, which damages the follicles and prevents or delays future hair growth in the treated area.

Q: Is laser hair removal permanent?

A: Laser hair removal can lead to long-lasting hair reduction, but it’s not always considered permanent. Multiple sessions are usually required to target all hair follicles in different growth cycles. The results can vary depending on factors like hair color, skin type, and hormonal influences.

Q: Is laser hair removal safe?

A: When performed by a trained professional, laser hair removal is generally safe. However, there may be some potential side effects, such as temporary redness, swelling, or skin irritation in the treated area. It’s important to follow pre- and post-treatment care instructions to minimize risks.

Q: Which areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?

A: Laser hair removal can be used on various body areas, including the face, neck, arms, underarms, chest, back, bikini line, and legs. It’s essential to consult with a professional to determine if laser hair removal is suitable for the specific area you wish to treat.

Q: Does laser hair removal work for all hair colors and skin types?

A: Laser hair removal is generally most effective for people with light skin and dark hair because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicles. However, advancements in technology have made it possible to treat a wider range of skin tones and hair colors. It’s best to consult with a professional to assess your eligibility.

Q: Is laser hair removal painful?

A: Laser hair removal may cause some discomfort or a mild stinging sensation during the procedure. However, most people tolerate it well. The sensation can vary depending on individual pain tolerance, the treated area, and the laser system used. Topical numbing creams can be applied to minimize any potential discomfort.

Q: How many laser hair removal sessions are needed?

A: The number of sessions required for optimal results can vary depending on factors like hair type, color, and the area being treated. Typically, multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart are necessary to target hair follicles in different growth cycles. On average, 6-8 sessions may be recommended.

Q: Are there any pre-treatment preparations required?

A: Prior to your laser hair removal session, you may be advised to avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, waxing, and plucking for a few weeks. Shaving the treatment area a day or two before the session is usually recommended to ensure the laser targets the hair follicles effectively.

Q: Are there any post-treatment care instructions to follow?

A: After laser hair removal, you may experience some temporary redness, swelling, or skin sensitivity. It’s important to protect the treated area from sun exposure, avoid hot baths or showers, and refrain from using harsh skincare products or exfoliants for a few days. Your provider will provide specific instructions based on your situation.

 

Is laser hair removal permanent?

No. Laser hair removal can lead to long-term hair reduction, but it’s not always considered permanent. The procedure targets and damages the hair follicles, which inhibits or delays future hair growth. However, some follicles may only be damaged and not completely destroyed, allowing for the possibility of hair regrowth over time. The effectiveness of laser hair removal can vary depending on factors such as hair color, skin type, hormonal influences, and individual response to treatment.

 

How much is laser hair removal?

We have all of our laser prices on our website under pricing on the main menu.

 

Do I need a patch test? If so how much is it?

Yes we require a patch test at VIVA, the cost is £50 which goes toward the cost of your treatment. 

 

Can I go out in the sun after laser?

 

After laser hair removal, it’s generally recommended to avoid direct sun exposure for a period of time. The treated skin may be more sensitive and prone to sunburn. Sun exposure can also increase the risk of complications such as hyperpigmentation or changes in skin color. We advise wearing SPF factor 50 and avoiding tanning beds as well as sun exposure to the treated area. At VIVA we only use ND YAG and ALEXANDRITE for laser, we do not use IPL which can cause more sensitivity to sun post treatment.

 

Hydrafacial FAQ:

Q: What is a HydraFacial?

A: A HydraFacial is a non-invasive facial treatment that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant infusion. It uses a specialized device that delivers a series of serums and gentle suction to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin.

 

Q: What skin concerns does HydraFacial address?

A: HydraFacial is designed to address a wide range of skin concerns, including uneven skin tone, dullness, congested pores, fine lines, wrinkles, acne, hyperpigmentation, and dehydration. It can be customized to target specific concerns based on your skin type and needs.

 

Q: Is HydraFacial suitable for all skin types?

A: Yes, HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The treatment can be tailored to address the unique concerns and sensitivities of different skin types. Your skincare professional will adjust the serums and suction levels accordingly.

 

Q: Is HydraFacial painful?

A: No, HydraFacial is generally a gentle and comfortable treatment. Most people find it relaxing and soothing. The suction and serums used during the procedure are designed to be gentle on the skin, minimizing any discomfort.

 

Q: How long does a HydraFacial treatment take?

A: The duration of a HydraFacial treatment can vary depending on the specific steps involved and any additional treatments or add-ons chosen. On average, a standard HydraFacial session takes about 30 to 60 minutes.

 

Q: Are there any side effects or downtime associated with HydraFacial?

A: HydraFacial is a non-invasive treatment with minimal side effects and no downtime. Some people may experience slight redness or temporary skin sensitivity immediately after the procedure, but this typically subsides quickly. You can resume your regular activities immediately after a HydraFacial session.

 

Q: How many HydraFacial sessions are needed to see results?

A: Visible results can often be seen after a single HydraFacial treatment, as it provides immediate hydration and a refreshed appearance. However, for optimal and longer-lasting results, a series of treatments is typically recommended. The number of sessions may vary depending on your skin condition and desired outcome.

 

 Q.Can I wear makeup after a HydraFacial?

A: It’s generally recommended to avoid applying makeup immediately after a HydraFacial to allow the skin to fully absorb the benefits of the treatment. However, you can usually resume wearing makeup within a few hours after the session if desired.

 

Q. How long do the results of HydraFacial last?

A: The duration of HydraFacial results can vary depending on individual factors such as skin type, lifestyle, and skincare routine. Typically, results can last for several weeks, and regular maintenance sessions every 4-6 weeks are often recommended to sustain the benefits.

 

Q:Can HydraFacial be combined with other treatments?

A: Yes, HydraFacial can be combined with other treatments to address specific concerns or enhance results. Common combinations include chemical peels, dermal fillers, or laser treatments. Your skincare professional can guide you on the best combination based on your goals and skin condition. We recommend waiting two weeks before or after a Hydrafacial for Botox or Dermal filler treatment.
