Some key laser hair removal facts:

Skin First laser is the most advanced and innovative system for laser hair removal. Our treatments are safe and effective for hair removal. They have the fastest repetition rate and the largest spot size found in such technology. This means it works effectively to remove body and facial hair without damaging the structure of the skin.

Our laser has precisely controlled pulses that are specifically optimised to target the hair follicle. The pigment (colour) absorbs the energy which travels down to the root of the hair then destroys the follicle; so that hair growth is impeded.

Hair Growth Cycles: Active hair growth goes through three main cycles (Anagen, Catagen and Telogen) in which laser hair removal was designed to integrate within the process to achieve that long lasting effect.

  • Growth Stage (Anagen): This is the phase in which hair growth is at its most active stage – the root of the hair is firmly attached within the skin where the melanin (pigment) is abundant. This is also the stage when Laser hair removal is most effective.
  • Transition stage (Catagen): The hair has completed growing and is now as long as it will be. With laser hair removal, the hair detaches from the root and will fall out on its own. The duration of this process can range from 7 -21 days.
  • Resting stage (Telogen): This is the resting phase of the hair follicle. The hair has detached from the root and is no longer growing. This stage can last from one week to up to a year before the cycle returns to the growth stage.


Inactive Hair: 
Hairs that are inactive are those that are yet to be activated by hormones. There are approximately 1,000 hairs per square centimeter and yet, only less than 100 hairs are actively growing. Hormones trigger the activation of the hair growth cycle, and that is why hair growth is most active at puberty and less active as we get older. Hair needs to be actively growing in order for Laser to be effective. The number of laser treatments required to remove hair will depend on your genetic makeup and other factors which determine your hormone levels.

Melanin: Melanin is the colour or pigment present in hair. Laser light is absorbed by darker objects, which is why treating darker hair is much more effective. The more contrast an individual has between their hair and skin, the better the result.

Had laser? Expectations not met? Don’t be fooled, READ ON! We solely concentrate on Laser Hair removal using clinically proven techniques. Our genuine laser technology will help you achieve the best possible results in hair reduction. Your skin is our first priority.

Too much jargon? Skin First makes it easy… Different types of lasers are determined by their wavelengths. When choosing a laser for hair removal, you most often want a longer wavelength, so that the beam can reach even the deepest hairs. Depending on the type of hair and where it is on the body, a hair shaft will grow anywhere from 1mm to 5mm deep. The wavelength of the 755nm Alexandrite laser allows the beam to penetrate as deep as hairs can grow, 5mm.

The Alexandrite laser works much faster than other types of lasers such as the ruby and diode lasers which are slow and out dated technology. For example, light sheer diode Lasers have a 9mm coverage area v’s Skin First’s 18mm spot size, as a result, Skin First Lasers are twice as fast).

Pre & post treatment, steps to remember when having laser. Easy as 1,2,3!

In order to obtain the most effective result from laser hair removal, please follow these recommendations:

  • 4 weeks before and after your treatment, avoid sunlight and use a high SPF sun screen on the area that will be treated.
  • Avoid the use of tanning beds and self tanning creams.
  • 3 weeks prior to your treatment, do not wax or pluck the area. For effective laser hair removal, hair needs to be attached to the skin.
  • A day prior to treatment (or on the day) shave the area that will be treated.
  • The day of the treatment, keep the area clear from any alcohol-containing products, make-up or perfume. These contain ingredients that may prevent an effective treatment.

The Buzz on all that Fuzz? Some frequently asked questions from our customers.

  • How many laser treatments will I need? The number of treatments required will vary, depending on the individual, as well as the treated area. On average, eight sessions are required to successfully reduce unwanted hair. Remember, Skin First will deliver visible results quicker than other SPL or IPL treatments.
  • Is laser hair removal permanent? With the use of a genuine laser, research has shown that hair removal treatments can permanently reduce hair. However, only technology such as Skin First lasers has the ability to produce such results. NOTE: BE AWARE OF THE INCREASE IN THE USE OF IPL LIGHT BASED TREATMENTS BEING OFFERED FOR HAIR REMOVAL. Although these are falsely advertised as lasers, they are certainly less effective than Skin First lasers.
  • Are there side effects? Our Alexandrite laser does not produce ionised light and is not radioactive. Side effects of laser hair removal are rare. These will be discussed in the FREE consultation.
  • What should I expect after Laser hair removal? The treated area may become pink. This will usually disappear within 1-2 hours. Between 7-21 days the hair will begin to surface and fall out. There should be no pain from the treatment.
  • How do I know if it’s right for me? It is important that you are completely confident with the treatments. If you would like further information make an appointment with us. We will answer any questions you may have and provide a FREE consultation.
