Laser Hair Removal
KJ Cosmetics in Bradfield, near Reading offers a wide range of laser hair removal treatments for both men and women of all skin types. Our new state of the art Duetto MT Evo laser offers the most advanced mixed laser technology in the world to achieve the safest and most effective laser hair removal.
Our pre-treatment consultation and patch testing allows our therapist Kate the opportunity to ensure you get the optimum treatment. If you would like to find out more about laser therapy please ring our salon and we would be happy to chat through the treatment process.
Laser hair removal treatments can be carried out on a variety of areas on the body, including: legs, armpits & arms, face, bikini line & back & chest.
Before your first session of laser hair removal you will need to have a full consultation and patch test. This is done at the salon so we can have a look at the area being treated and to ensure that laser hair removal is suitable for you.
If you have had laser hair removal elsewhere or even a patch test you will still need to have another with us as things can change over time and not all machines offer the same treatments.
During this appointment you will fill out a medical health form, a laser consent form and a Fitzpatrick Scale form to determine what skin type you are and if you are suitable for the treatment.
Our Duetto MT Evo machine offers combined laser technology which offers hair removal for a whole range of skin types, from 1 to 6 (I-VI) on the Fitzpatrick scale.
Once we know your skin is suitable for laser hair removal treatment, we can book in your first session; most people will need as little as 6 sessions for complete hair removal.
However, in some cases of hirsutism such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) clients may need between 10 and 12 treatments; this is something that will be discussed during your consultation.
Appointments will generally be 4 weeks apart but as we get towards the end of your course you may be asked to leave 6 weeks between to have the most effective results.
Each laser hair removal session will be reducing your hair growth by roughly 20%, this is because the laser can best treat hairs in the anagen phase of growth.
Ahead of the patch test you will be asked to leave your hair grow for a few days. This is so we can assess the thickness of your hair and its speed of growth.
After considering your skin and hair type we will set up the machine and take 2/3 shots in the treatment area to see if your skin reacts. (A shot is one flash of the laser light).
Most people will not have any visible reaction to laser hair removal; however, a slight redness is not uncommon and quite normal. Once the patch test has been done, we leave the area at least 24h to check there are no further reactions.
AFTER TREATMENT CARE
Once you have started your laser hair removal it is important that you only shave in between your sessions and do not wax, pluck or epilate. This is important as pulling any hair out from the root will not give us effective results at your next laser session.
After your appointments you need to ensure that the treated area is kept out of direct sunlight and you should avoid sunbeds; showers should not be too hot and you should keep the area free from deodorants and perfumes as we will advise.
For full information on what not to do before and after your treatment check out our pre and post aftercare page and the detailed information you will have at the appointment.
Hair Growth Phases
The anagen growth phase lasts roughly 2/3 weeks and is when the hair is connected to the dermal papilla. Treating the hair at this stage allows the laser to travel down the hair shaft and kill the hair at the root.
Our dual technology machine targets both melanin in the colour of the hair and the blood supply to the root. It is important that before your laser hair removal appointment you shave the area 24/48hrs before so that the laser is able to detect the hair sitting just at the surface of the skin.
