Laser Hair Removal – Terms & Conditions

The following are the terms and conditions under which Vaibhavi Beauty Salon provides treatment.

General

Laser Hair Removal (LHR) is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to remove unwanted hair from all parts of the body. The laser device works by emitting pulses of light energy that penetrate the skin and destroy hair follicles while the device’s handpiece cools the surrounding skin. Because the laser needs to fill the hair follicle to work effectively, it is important not to wax, tweeze, have electrolysis procedures or pluck hair for 2-4 weeks prior to the procedure.

You will be required to wear protective eye glasses during the procedure to protect your eyes from the laser light. You may feel a slight burning, stinging or pinching sensation during the procedure.

It generally takes 10 to 21 days after the procedure for the treated hair to fall out.

Treatment of dark course hair generally achieves the best results while removal of light fine hair generally requires additional treatments which may or may not be successful. Clinical results of LHR may also vary depending on individual skin type, hormonal levels and hereditary influences. Therefore, some patients may experience partial results and some may notice no improvement at all. Future hormonal changes may cause additional hair growth.

LHR procedure generally involves a series of treatments.

Ideal (light skin/dark hair) candidates can usually achieve 65%-90% reduction with a series of 6 treatments. Thicker skinned areas usually require more than 6 sessions and usually achieve only partial reduction or hair thinning.

Consultation

During your consultation session, we inform you of the treatments we offer, their effects, side-effects, benefits, risks, limitations and any costs which may be involved.

We require that you declare any medical conditions, medications of any description, skin preparations, sun exposure or changes of any nature to Vaibhavi Beauty Salon prior to each treatment.
