  • Today lets talk beauty the subject I am addressing today is laser hair removal.This is something I have considered many times , laser Hair Removal is known to be a’ safe and pretty much pain free hair removal method which has been popular to help remove those so called unwanted hair.’ Of course with so many hair removal methods out there these days it can be mind blowing deciding what option is best for you at least thats what I have found to be quiet tricky. Personally I think it’s best to do a little research so your aware what makes each one stand out,prior to writing this post I did a bit of homework to help us all out and find out what makes it different to other similar methods out there.

    I have collaborated with sk:n to introduce you to their laser hair removal treatment but also to get myself more familiar with the treatment if I do end up proceeding with it. I have previously used their skincare so I was very familiar with they brand as they have such a great and wide range of products for pretty much any skin type I was excited and keen to find out about their treatments too. Sk:n are all about the aftercare,having read their website I noticed they want to makes us ladies aware that after care is just as important as the actual treatment which I think is the case with many treatments.They will advise you on how to maintain your hair free skin but also consult you prior to the treatment where test patches are done in order to make sure  the treatments runs smoothly and with no complications, this is something that attracted me to their laser treatment , they provide you with a lot more than just the treatment itself.  Sk:n are kindly giving away vouchers to their non surgical treatments to anyone who uses their laser hair removal treatments which is great as you are able to try out any other treatments they may have on offer , we all love a freebie lets be honest and who doesn’t like to be pampered so I personally think its fab they do this as not only is this helping them get their treatments out there it’s a bonus for us ladies too as technically we are getting two treatments for the price of one , think I can deal with that hehe! 

    Let’s get a little serious and Technical, below are a few of the main FAQ’s That The Sk:n have put together to make it easy for us laser hair removal newbies easier if you would like to find out more simply click here to have a browse through their website. 

    How does the treatment work?

    The laser is attracted to the dark pigment in hair called melanin. The energy from the laser travels down to the base of the hair follicle using melanin as a ‘conductor’ where it disperses as thermal energy. This damages the base of the hair follicle rendering it unable to produce hair as quickly. This rate of growth will decrease more as you have further treatments.

    As well as the laser needing melanin, the hair must also be in a certain stage of its growth cycle for the treatment to be effective. This cycle is known as the ‘active growing phase’, or anagen, and is when the hair is connected to the base of the hair follicle. This connection provides a direct pathway for the laser energy to disperse where the hair is produced at the base of the follicle.

    Not every hair is in this phase at any one time on the body which is why you will need multiple treatments. This is referred to as the ‘resting phase’ or telogen.

    Is this the right treatment for me?

    As melanin is needed in order for the treatment to be effective, laser hair removal unfortunately does not yet work on blonde, white or grey hair.

    How often will I need treatment?

    You must have the treatment on a regular basis to get the maximum benefit. Facial hair is treated every 4 weeks and body hair is treated every 6 weeks. We recommend a minimum of six treatments.

    What happens after treatment?

    You may have some redness in the skin; this is completely normal and generally settles within 24 hours. Protecting your skin from the sun is essential to avoid any darkening caused by increased pigment in the skin called hyperpigmentation. The sk:n after care kit will help to protect your skin.

    This has definitely been a longer post to what I usually write but I wanted it to be informative and as helpful to ya’ll interested in the topic as possible.I would love to know about your experiences with laser hair removal treatments if any of you have had one?

    *DISCLAIMER: This is a collaborated post however all of my opinions are my own and honest.

      I have been to sk:n clinics before, but not for this- they are really modern and friendly! Not sure on the laser hair removal, from talking to others it seems quite costly and doesn't give perfect results
