Laser Treatment as Renew – Featured in Sunday Independent

“The good news for dark women is that laser treatment is particularly effective for us, as it works best on pale skin and dark coarse hair. You need to have a few sessions because hair grows at different stages, but the difference after two sessions has been tremendous for me, and I’m absolutely thrilled with the results.”

Client Review on Laser Hair Removal

“The treatment I receive at Renew Naas with Sinéad is always excellent. I’d received other laser treatments at other establishments over the years but they never worked long term. I’ve completed a series of treatment with Sinéad and the results have more than been surprising after previous experiences. I expected a top up much earlier than I needed it, the results have been excellent, Sinéad provides realistic expectations and advises as to the most appropriate follow up as required. I’d recommend anyone to contact Renew for laser treatment as they won’t get better results or advice anywhere else, in my opinion.”

FAQ on Laser Hair Removal

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Yes, it is. The hair that is killed during a laser hair removal session is dead and will never grow back. And nowadays new technology is capable of giving over 80-90% or better permanent reduction, for ALL parts of the body, except around the eyes. However don’t forget that you have a lot more hair on your body than you probably imagine (hair grows in cycles so you actually never get to see all your hair at any given time) and it takes multiple sessions to kill 80-90% of this total hair. Another thing to keep in mind is that your body, as long as you are well and alive, will produce new hair. None of us had hair as babies or children but our bodies grew and shed hair over our lifetimes. This process will continue despite laser hair removal and the growth of new hair is actually why you need top up sessions once or twice a year.

How many sessions do I need to achieve a smooth skin?

Most people will need 6 treatments. In some areas, such as the legs, faster results will be achieved. Within three treatments, at least 50 percent of your hair will be gone forever. Within six treatments 90 percent, or higher, results will be achieved. You can expect similar results for the bikini area, under the arms, on the arms, and the facial and chest areas. The back area of men is usually more challenging and may take a few extra treatments. The results will of course vary from person to person based on age, gender, hormones, punctuality with appointments, hair color etc.

How soon do I expect to see results? How do I know it is working for me?

You will see results starting with your VERY FIRST session. The hair growth will be less and the hairs finer and weaker; your skin will become smoother; and the hair pores on your skin will become less visible after each session. The results will become more impressive with each following session.

How does the treatment feel?

Treatment sensation varies but is often described as “a flick of an elastic band”. Most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable.

Can I tan while having laser treatment?

No as tanning alters the melanin in the skin which can have an impact on your results and extend the amount of sessions needed.

Can fake tan be worn throughout my course of treatment?

Yes, fake tan can be applied 4-5 days after your session and can be used in between each session. However do not apply any fake tan the week before your treatment and ensure that you are exfoliating your skin daily to remove any residue. If there is any residue on the skin we cannot perform your treatment until all tan is removed.

How do I prepare for hair removal?

As the hair shaft is the treatment target, it is important to stop all waxing, sugaring or plucking, or using hair minimising creams for approximately eight weeks prior to your laser treatment. Removing the hair shafts prior to treatment means there will be no target for the laser.

What are the possible side effects?

Short term reactions such as a redness and follicular edema (which is a temporary swelling of the hair root sac with a similar overall appearance as goose bumps). These may take a few minutes to several hours to fade away. Most people can get treated during their lunch time and there will be no visible indications of a treatment when they return to their office.

Is Laser Hair Removal for everyone?

Laser hair removal will NOT work on white, grey, light red or blonde hair follicles.

I have ingrown on my face, legs, bikini area. Would laser help?

Absolutely. Even after one treatment you will notice that most of your ingrowns will be terminated.

What should I do before treatment?

Your hair needs to be as short as possible for this treatment to be effective. Therefore we do recommend you to shave at least a day or two before. Since we will cover the entire area in each of your sessions we do not actually need to see the hair. Shaving it removes the surface debris and allows the laser beam to penetrate and kill the root as it should.

What should I do after treatment?

After the treatments we advise you to treat your skin with care for the next 24 hours. Avoid heat treatments such as hot showers, sauna and stream room, avoid sweating excessively, rough exfoliating or products that contain a lot of chemical ingredients should be avoided since they can cause itchy, sensitive skin. After this period of time you can return to your daily habits with no danger whatsoever.
