Frequently asked questions
Is laser hair removal painful?
Treatments can vary from virtually pain free, to painful and a lot depends on the laser hair removal system being used. Cheaper and older systems can be painful. Other systems can be described as being uncomfortable.
At Tina O’Doherty’s we use the very latest laser technology that can be described as virtually pain free. A patented cooling tip ensures you have a the most comfortable treatment available today
Is laser hair removal permanent?
In simple terms the answer to this question is that a limited number of laser hair removal systems are clinically proving to permanently reduce your unwanted hair. However the results you will achieve depend greatly on 3 main factors.
1. The Laser Hair Removal System used.
Most people believe that all laser hair removal systems are the same or similar.
In fact, the reality is that this could not be further from the truth. There are many different systems and they vary in cost from a few hundred pounds to over £100,000.
The problem you have as a client is understanding the difference.
Whilst Laser Hair Removal is clinically proven to permanently remove your unwanted hair. But this is only true for high powered medical grade lasers that conform to the standers used in clinical trials.
However, the market has been flooded by cheap imports that do not use medical grade lasers. In fact these machines are simply not powerful enough or maintained enough to ensure they will effectively destroy your unwanted hair.
At Tina O’Doherty’s we use the very latest medical grade laser hair removal system that is at the higher end of the market. Our system is clinically proven to give you excellent hair removal results.
2. Your Hair Colour.
Different laser systems are designed to treat different hair colours. Some are better for dark or brown hair and others are better for lighter coloured hair (blonde or red).
Today there are now some high end systems that are designed to treat all hair colours. The hair removal system used at Tina O’Doherty’s is designed to treat all hair colours. It is important to note that no laser system can treat white hair.
3. The experience of your therapist
At Tina O’Doherty’s not only are all our therapists highly trained, but due to the fact that we specialise in hair removal they are very experienced.
In addition, it is our policy to allocate a dedicated therapist to each client to ensure consistency and maximum results.
Is laser hair removal safe?
When you visit Tina O'Doherty's Laser Hair Removal clinic a consultation and patch test will be performed to determine the best setting for your hair and skin type. This is also an extra safety measure which will allow your therapist to gauge your reaction to laser hair removal prior to completing your first full treatment.
When treatment’s are carried out by fully trained/experienced therapists using well maintained medical grade lasers the risk of severe side effects are rare. Mild side effects that are possible include redness of the skin; raised bumps at the hair follicle; minor blistering.
Some more sensitive areas may feel slightly hot (like a mild sunburn). These can be soothed with Aloe Vera gel or a cold towel. There is a small risk on darker skin that your laser treatments can temporarily change your skin pigment. Typically, these side effects diminish within a few hours but sometimes it takes a day or two for them to totally disappear.
Is laser hair removal suitable for all hair and skin colours?
This depends on the equipment being used. Our Scottish clinics use the very latest Diode laser technology that is capable of treating all hair colours and skin types, with the exception being white hair.
White hair cannot be treated by laser as it has no melanin. Melanin provides your hair with its colour and diminishes as we age. By the time it goes white it is too late for laser to be an effective treatment.
How long do laser hair removal treatment take?
This really depends on the type of laser hair removal device being used and the area being treated. At Tina's clinics a small area such as the top lip will take 5min. Larger areas such as the full legs take approx. 40min.
Do you offer laser hair removal for men?
Yes all 6 of our Scottish clinics offer a full laser hair removal service for our male clients.
Popular areas are back (full or half), arms, chest and beard. We are also one of the only clinics in Scotland to treat male buttock and pubic laser hair removal.
Do you offer laser hair removal to transgender clients?
Yes all 6 of our Scottish clinics offer a full laser hair removal service for our transgender clients.
Popular areas are back, chest and beard. We are also one of the only clinics in Scotland to treat your pubic and buttock areas.
What type of laser do you use?
At Tina O'Doherty's we use the very latest medical grade Diode laser hair removal system.
Over the years Tina has worked with many laser hair removal systems including, Alexandrite Laser's and IPL (intense pulsed light), which in fact is not a laser.
Advancements in technology has lead to the development of the latest diode laser hair removal systems. This is now regarded as the gold standard when it comes to removing unwanted hair.
When compared to the other systems Tina has used, her new diode machines are much more effective. Furthermore they can treat a broader range of skin types and hair colours.
As well as being more effective, Tina's diode treatments are fast and relatively pain free.
