5 Misconceptions of Laser Hair Removal

Hair removal is a ‘normal’ part of daily hygiene and there’s many methods to achieving hair-free skin! Whilst we know that Laser Hair Removal is the most popular cosmetic treatment worldwide, there are still misconceptions about the treatment.

Here at HC MedSpa, we achieve ultimate results using the worlds leading, gold-standard laser machines. So, let us clear a few things up …

“Laser Hair removal is painful”

We achieve the best results using the world’s leading pain-free technology trio: Soprano Ice Platinum, Soprano Ice and Alexandrite. In clear advantage of all other laser machines, our laser device has an ‘ice-cooling’ tip. This keeps the skin comfortably cool throughout the treatment making it virtually painless and delivering a massage-like sensation.


“It’s only for women”

At HC MedSpa we’re experiencing a year on year rise from our male client base opting for a fuss-free, hair-free lifestyle! to be hair free. Traditionally men tend to go for body or facial waxing, however with demand for a more permanent solution, Laser Hair Removal for Men is the perfect answer to rid unwanted hair for good.

“This procedure only works on light skin tones”

Soprano ICE’s safe hair removal method has been clinically proven to be the safe option for dark skin types. Rather than exposing the hair follicle to a single high energy pulse which can cause trauma to skin with a high melanin count, this method gradually heats the skin until the required heat energy is delivered to the hair follicle. Making it the safest laser hair removal option, including for dark skinned patients.


“You cannot go into the sun after having Laser Hair Removal”

This treatment affects the melanin of the skin using a unique method, allowing the procedure to be performed anytime of the year as well as on tanned skin. So, sun exposure is less traumatic to the skin following HC’s Laser Hair Removal treatment.


“It takes ages before results are noticeable”

Laser Hair Removal works in a cycle formation and it will take a few days to notice a difference in hair growth. The hair will shed gradually over-time and after each session.
