HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

MOC Laser (class 4 medical grade) uses 810nm wavelength and is safe – clinical studies have shown it to be highly effective for hair removal.

The Diode laser works by projecting a beam of light which is converted to heat and conducted down the shaft of the hair to the hair follicle. The laser is calibrated to target pigment (melanin) in the growing hair. This means that the hair follicle is destroyed without damaging the surrounding tissue.

An initial consultation is required prior to treatment where a technician/nurse will assess your skin type and hair growth to see if you are a suitable candidate for laser hair removal. A test patch is performed before treatments begin to assess the reaction of your skin to the laser.

The target area is shaved before treatment so that the surface hair does not absorb the laser energy. We carefully photo-document and monitor the entire treatment process along with our clients.

Because the laser only acts on hair follicles that are in an active growth phase (approx. 10-30% at any one time), more than one treatment will be required to kill the hair follicles that subsequently enter this growth phase.

Other factors that may affect the number of treatments required include your skin type, age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medications and metabolism.

Since darker hair tends to have higher pigment content, the laser is most effective on dark brown or black hair. Darker tones of red and blonde hair are also treated effectively with the laser. White or grey hair can be treated if there is enough pigment in the hair shaft to conduct the energy of the laser beam. This can be assessed by test patching.

There may be a little discomfort and some areas are more sensitive than others, however, there is a cooling system within the hand piece that significantly reduces discomfort. Skin may appear slightly red after laser hair removal treatment. This normally subsides within a few hours.

PREPARATION & AFTERCARE

Pre Laser Hair Removal Treatment
  • Do not wax, pluck, use depilatory creams or undertake electrolysis for 4 weeks prior to treatment, and in between treatments.

  • Do not use prescription strength exfoliant creams (Retin-A and Alpha Hydroxy) for 2 weeks prior to treatment.

  • Do not shave for up to 2 weeks prior to your first treatment. Please then shave the night before all subsequent treatments.

  • Avoid tanning, including self-tanning lotions, tanning bed/booths or sun exposure, for 4 weeks prior to and in between treatments. A sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater should be used on any area of sun-exposed skin that you plan to treat.

Post Laser Hair Removal Treatment
  • A mild sunburn-like sensation is anticipated. This usually resolves within 2-3 hours of treatment but may persist for up to 2 days. Application of chilled aloe vera gel or an ice pack every hour for 5-10 minutes may be soothing to the skin. Continue until symptoms subside.

  • Avoid sun exposure to treated areas. Apply sunblock with SPF 30 or greater daily to sun-exposed treated areas between treatments and for 4-6 weeks after your last treatment.

  • Bathe or shower as usual. Treated areas may be temperature sensitive. Avoid use of strongly scented lotions or soaps, prescription strength exfoliant creams, loofah sponges, and aggressive scrubbing to treated areas during the healing phase.

  • Allow any blistered or open areas to heal spontaneously. If healing is delayed, a thin coating of antibiotic ointment may be advised. Do not pick at these areas. Picking may result in infection or scarring. Allow any crusting to heal spontaneously, crusting will resolve in 3-14 days. Application of antibiotic ointment is not recommended for crusting.

  • Appearance of “stubble” may appear in 1-4 weeks. This is not hair re-growth. It is the remnant of treated hairs being expelled from the damaged follicle. Allow this hair to fall out of the skin on its own or by gently washing with a warm wet washcloth. Do not pluck or tweeze. You may shave during this period.

  • Best results are obtained on clients who have follow up treatment immediately after hair starts to grow. Your clinician will advise you when you should schedule your next appointment. It is important to adhere to this regime.

Important information for all Laser Hair Treatments
  • Until redness has completely resolved, avoid all of the following:

    • Applying cosmetics on treated areas

    • Swimming, especially in pools with chemical/chlorine

    • Hot tubs and jacuzzis

    • Activities that cause excessive perspiration

    • Avoid sun exposure to treated areas.

  • Do not pick, scratch or remove scabs as this will cause unwanted side effects.

  • Apply a sunscreen with SPF 30+ daily to sun-exposed skin, AND REAPPLY AS DIRECTED BY PRODUCT INSTRUCTIONS.

  • Increased photosensitivity to UV, Laser can occur when taking certain medications. During your treatment programme, if you have commenced or changed dosage with the following medications, you must advise your clinician:

    • Antibiotics – doxycycline (acne), minocycline, Tetracyclines, Sulphonamides

    • Antihistamines – Diphenhydramone, Cyproheptadine

    • Antidepressants

    • Herbal preparations – st Johns wort, Ginko Biloba, citrus oils, Herbal HRT therapies.

 

Taking these medications does not exclude you from treatments; however, extra precautions are applicable in these cases.
