Diode Laser Hair Reduction

At Naomi Waite Aesthetics clinic, we utilise the most advanced technologies to provide our clients with safe and effective hair removal treatments. Our Diode Laser Hair Reduction treatment is one of the best options for those looking to permanently reduce unwanted hair.

Diode Laser Hair Reduction

The Diode Laser Hair Reduction treatment we offer is a non-invasive procedure that uses a three-wavelength diode laser to target hair follicles. This allows the diode laser to penetrate deeper into the skin and efficiently destroy the hair follicles, preventing future hair growth.

Unlike traditional hair removal methods, Diode Laser Hair Reduction has minimal discomfort and side effects and the treatment is relatively painless.

One of the main benefits of our Diode Laser Hair Reduction treatment is that it is suitable for all skin types, including darker skin tones. This is because the three-wavelength diode laser can adjust to different skin and hair types, making it a highly versatile hair removal option.

At Naomi Waite Aesthetics clinic, we recommend a series of treatments to achieve the best results. Typically, clients will need between six to eight treatments, depending on the area being treated and the hair density and growth cycle.

If you’re looking for a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair, our Diode Laser Hair Reduction treatment may be the perfect option for you. Our team of experts is dedicated to delivering outstanding results in a comfortable and relaxing environment. Book your appointment with us today and experience the benefits of our Diode Laser Hair Reduction treatment for yourself!

Frequently Asked Questions

Diode 3 Wavelength Laser Hair Reduction is a treatment that aims to permanently reduce hair growth using laser technology. This treatment uses a diode laser that emits three wavelengths of light that penetrate the skin to target the hair follicles.

The laser heats up the hair follicles, damaging them and inhibiting future hair growth. The three different wavelengths allow for targeted treatment of different skin and hair types.

The treatment is known to be uncomfortable but not painful. Most people compare the sensation to that of a rubber band being snapped against their skin. However, a cooling gel is applied to the skin before the treatment to minimize discomfort.

The number of sessions needed will depend on the individual’s hair type, skin type, and the area being treated. Generally, six to eight sessions are recommended for optimal results.

The most common side effect is minor redness and swelling of the treated area, which usually subsides within a few hours. In rare cases, temporary pigment changes or blistering may occur.

This treatment is suitable for both men and women of all skin and hair types, but it may not be suitable for those with blonde, white, or grey hair. It is important to have a consultation with a qualified practitioner to determine if this treatment is right for you.

The length of each session will depend on the area being treated. Small areas such as the upper lip or chin may take only a few minutes, while larger areas like the legs or back may take up to an hour.

There is no downtime associated with this treatment, and you can immediately resume your normal activities. However, it is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure and to apply SPF to the treated area for at least a week after each session.

The cost of this treatment will depend on the area being treated and the number of sessions needed. We offer competitive pricing and packages that can be tailored to your individual needs. Please contact us for a personalized quote.

While this treatment helps reduce hair growth by targeting the hair follicles, it is not considered a permanent solution. However, many individuals enjoy long-lasting results and may only need maintenance treatments once or twice a year.

Treatment Care

Before booking an IPL/Laser Hair Removal treatment at Naomi Waite Aesthetics, we advise our clients to follow certain pre care instructions to ensure optimal results and minimize the occurrence of adverse side effects. Our pre care advice includes:

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment, as tanned skin can increase the risk of side effects such as burns and hyperpigmentation.
  • Shave the treatment area the day before the appointment to ensure the laser energy is targeted at the hair follicles rather than the hair shaft on the surface of the skin.
  • Inform the practitioner if you have any medical conditions, such as diabetes or a history of herpes, as certain conditions can affect the safety and effectiveness of IPL / laser hair removal.
  • Stop using any topical products that contain retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids, or benzoyl peroxide on the treatment area at least 7 days before the appointment, as these ingredients can increase the risk of skin irritation and burning.
  • Avoid using any fragranced products on the treatment area, such as perfumes or lotions, as these can also increase the risk of skin irritation and sensitivity.
  • Do not pluck, wax, or bleach the treatment area for at least 4 weeks prior to the appointment, as the hair follicles need to be intact for the laser to be effective.
  • Stay hydrated and well-nourished before the appointment, as healthy skin can better handle the laser energy and recover more quickly from any side effects.
  • Wear loose and comfortable clothing to the appointment, as tight clothing and synthetic fabrics can cause friction and irritation on the treated skin.
  • Arrive at the appointment with clean skin that is free of any makeup, lotion, or deodorant, as these can interfere with the laser energy and cause adverse effects.
  • Follow any additional pre-care instructions provided by the practitioner, as these may depend on the specific type of laser used or your individual skin type.
  • After undergoing IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) or laser hair removal treatment, it is essential to take proper care of the treated area to ensure optimal results and avoid any potential side effects. Here are some essential aftercare tips for clients having IPL or laser hair removal at Naomi Waite Aesthetics:

    • Immediately following the treatment, apply a cool compress to the treated area to reduce redness and swelling.
    • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight or tanning beds for at least 2 weeks before and after the treatment.
    • Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to the treated area every day, even if it is cloudy outside.
    • Avoid using hot water, saunas, and steam rooms for at least 48 hours after the treatment.
    • Do not use any perfumed products, exfoliants, or moisturizers for at least 48 hours after the treatment.
    • Do not pick, scratch, or rub the treated area, as this can cause crusting, blisters, scabbing, and scarring.
    • If you experience any adverse effects, such as crusting, blisters, scabbing, or scarring, contact Naomi Waite Aesthetics immediately for further advice.
    • Do not shave, wax, or pluck the treated area for at least 4 weeks after the treatment.
    • It is important to attend all follow-up appointments with Naomi Waite Aesthetics to monitor your progress and ensure that the treatment is effective.

    If you have any concerns or questions about the after care, do not hesitate to contact Naomi Waite Aesthetics for advice

    While IPL / Laser Hair Reduction is generally safe and well-tolerated, it may cause some risks and side effects, such as:

    • Redness, swelling, and tenderness: These are common and usually resolve within a few hours to a few days after treatment.
    • Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation: IPL / Laser Hair Reduction may cause changes in skin color, either darker or lighter than your natural skin tone. This is more common in people with darker skin tones.
    • Burns or blisters: IPL / Laser Hair Reduction may cause burns or blisters if the skin is over-treated or the energy level is too high. This is rare but can be prevented by choosing a qualified and experienced aesthetician.
    • Infection: IPL / Laser Hair Reduction may cause infection if the skin is not properly cleaned and disinfected before and after treatment. This is rare but can be prevented by following proper hygiene and aftercare instructions.

    • Apply a soothing cream or ointment, such as aloe vera or calendula, to the affected area.
    • Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight, as this can exacerbate the crusting
    • Blisters
    • Blisters can occur as a result of the heat generated by the IPL / laser.

    • Do not pick at the scabs, as this can lead to scarring.
    • Apply a moisturizing cream or ointment, such as petroleum jelly, to the area to keep it hydrated.
    • Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight, as this can slow down the healing process.

    • Scarring is a rare complication of IPL / laser hair removal, but it can occur in some cases.
    • If you notice any signs of scarring, such as redness, swelling, or raised bumps, contact Naomi Waite Aesthetics immediately.
    • Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight, as this can make the scarring worse.
    • Apply a scar-reducing cream or ointment, such as silicone gel, to the area to help minimize the appearance of the scar.
    • Hyper / Hypopigmentation
    • Hyper / hypopigmentation is a common side effect of IPL / laser hair removal, especially in people with darker skin tones.
    • Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight, as this can worsen the hyperpigmentation.
