So why are we offering Laser?Amy Lewis2022-08-06T20:28:16+01:00
People want to be hair free and want it last forever, and who doesn’t want to feel like a dolphin, right?
Laser Hair removal is becoming increasingly popular nowadays, and as we specialise in hair removal services, it seems only fitting that we offer a treatment that provides permanent hair removal options aswell.
As you know, we love finding out what our clients think, so after we carried out the Laser survey that was issued in July 2022, it was really clear that our comMOOnity were really interested in having laser, but either wanted to know more about it, or wanted to go somewhere that they trusted.
So, after 5 years of research, we have finally found the equipment that we feel really confident in, and comfortable launching across our salons.
Which salons will be offering Laser Hair Removal?Amy Lewis2023-09-08T15:19:51+01:00
At Mooeys, we use the Contour Dio-Ice from the Contour Group.
The Dio-Ice’s Triple Wavelengths (755 Alexandrite – 808 Diode – 1064 ND Yag) offers the three most effective laser hair removal wavelengths on the market, simultaneously working in unison. Allowing us to safely treat ALL Skin types and target hair growths at different stages for optimum, quick results.
The triple wavelength is considered the Gold Standard in Laser Hair Removal for the face and body. The removal process is very significant, painless and comfortable.
Diode Laser Hair Removal provides enhanced comfort during treatment, minimal risk of infection, speed and accuracy and also minimises skin irritation that other methods may create. Diode Laser is a precise instrument, with light parameters that can be adjusted to damage only the hair follicle, while minimally affecting the surrounding skin.
The system emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the melanin located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed for only a fraction of a second, and the duration of each pulse is long enough to damage the follicle without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The equipment we use has a unique, patented contact-cooling hand piece, that protects the skin by offering conductive cooling during the laser delivery.
What training have your therapists had?Amy Lewis2022-08-06T20:30:54+01:00
Everybody’s hair and skin is different and generally speaking, laser is a long term hair removal option. However, if you go through significant hormonal changes such as Pregnancy, Menopause or change in medication – this can have an impact on your hair regrowth and some hair may grow back.
Are there any side effects?Amy Lewis2022-08-06T20:33:58+01:00
Certain medications can cause photo-sensitivity to the skin and this may affect the skin’s reaction to the treatment. These medications are but not limited to oral and topical vitamin A’s, antibiotics, and certain anti-depressants. It is best to speak with your medical professional and obtain medical clearance. After obtaining medical clearance, we are able to test patch you with the laser to determine it is safe to commence treatment.
How long do I need to leave it between having Laser Hair Removal Treatments?Amy Lewis2022-08-06T20:35:47+01:00
This really depending on your hair and skin type aswell as the area being treated. We would recommend you have treatments every 4-6 weeks. Each part of the body has a different hair growth cycle, so the hair loss will vary depending on what phase your follicles are in at the time of treatment.
What do I need to do before I have Laser Hair Removal Treatment?Amy Lewis2022-08-06T20:37:50+01:00
Numbing creams are not particularly safe, nor super effective when doing Laser Hair Removal. The sensation that you feel in a Laser treatment is not felt on the skin, but in the follicle of the hair. Numbing creams cannot penetrate deep enough to minimise any discomfort that may be felt at the follicle.
Also, with the Laser machine that we use, it provides a cooling effect which prevents the usual heat sensation you can get with other types of machines.
Please ensure that no occlusive creams are present on the treatment areas when undergoing laser hair removal treatments.
What Aftercare do I need to follow?Amy Lewis2022-09-07T09:04:31+01:00
Please follow the below aftercare to help us achieve the best results possible:
For 2 days post treatment, you must avoid hot showers, shaving, waxing and any kind of plucking in the area. Also, you need to avoid excessive sweating for a few days too, so definitely no steam or saunas.
Using daily SPF is super important, especially on the face, and avoid direct sunlight for up to 4 weeks.
Applying an after-laser moisturiser really will help keep your skin hydrating and help with soothing, calming and cooling the skin. Our MOOSKIN Soothe is brilliant for this, and designed specifically for post waxing and laser treatment – it’s ace.
Please don’t exfoliate for approx. a week, however exfoliating a couple of times per week will really help with your results and getting super soft skin at the same time.
Can I have laser treatment when I am on my period?Amy Lewis2022-08-06T20:40:59+01:00
There is no link connecting Laser Hair Removal to negative effects on pregnant women or when breastfeeding. However, there is also no evidence to guarantee it is actually a safe treatment to have during this time either.
However, because there are no long-term studies and due to the delicate nature of pregnancy, it has been recommended by most professional that laser hair removal is postponed until after the birth of the baby. And at Mooeys, we whole heartedly agree with this and feel it is always best to err on the side of caution when it comes to the health and welfare of both mum and baby.
When it comes to breastfeeding, the problem lies with the hormones and the affect that hormones have on your hair growth. The Laser itself won’t cause you or your baby any problems, however we cannot guarantee a great result.
Our word of advice on this would be to wait 12 weeks post labour before continuing or starting your Laser course. This is because the hair growth can change so much during and after labour and we want you to get the best results possible. Let your body heal and rest up, and then once you have passed the 12-week period, this would be the right time to get on with your Laser again, or even start it.
If you are troubled by excess hair growth during pregnancy, we recommend more temporary hair removal solutions such as waxing. Once you have given birth and past your initial 12 weeks, we are happy to re-commence your Laser Hair Removal sessions or start your course of treatment.
We would also always recommend a patch test post labour, even if you have had laser hair removal before. The body goes through so many changes, and we would want to be sure that you aren’t going to have any kind of reactions.
Is this treatment gender specific?Amy Lewis2022-08-06T20:45:41+01:00
