FAQ

  • How does the Duetto MT laser hair removal work?

    Light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells. The result is permanent hair removal.

  • How is the hair laser treatment carried out?

    Prior to your laser hair removal treatment, a consultation is conducted.  During this time, a medical history is taken to confirm your suitability for treatment. There is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you have about hair removal. Finally, there will be time for a small patch test to be carried out*.

    During the hair laser treatment, the applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many hair follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.

    *£20 charge for test patch, redeemable against any laser treatment.

  • Am I suitable for permanent hair removal treatment?

    Almost everyone is suitable for laser hair removal treatment with our Duetto MT. We use Alexandrite (the best laser for lighter skins) and Nd:YAG laser (the safest laser for darker skins). However, we can mix the two lasers for even better results. This is the only laser in the world that can operate like this.

    Unfortunately, as grey/white hair has no melanin, it is not suitable for hair laser treatment.

  • What will I see after my laser hair removal treatment?

    Your hair follicles are damaged by the heat used during our laser hair removal, but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1-3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period, your hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.

  • How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

    Only hair that is actively growing during the laser hair removal treatment will be affected. Therefore, multiple treatments are necessary. Treatment will be conducted every 4-8 weeks, depending on the area to be treated. This will be repeated until a satisfactory result is achieved. The required number of treatments varies, but typically six or more treatments are required for optimum laser hair removal results.

  • How long does each permanent hair removal treatment take?

    Permanent hair removal treatments can take as little as 15 minutes but can last up to two hours. The length of your treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area.

  • How does laser hair removal treatment feel?

    The treatment sensation during a laser hair removal varies, but it is often described as a “flick of an elastic band”. Typically, no anaesthesia is required and most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable.

  • Is there any downtime after hair laser treatment?

    The skin may be red immediately after your hair laser treatment. Your hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Adverse reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
