Over the weekend I had the opportunity to do an interview with Mariam, a Technician from a laser hair removal clinic based in Birmingham known as Roots Laser Hair Removal.
Here are some of the questions I asked her…
Q1 – What is Laser Hair Removal?
Scientifically I could go on for hours explaining what it is, how it works, etcetera. But to save your readers from getting bored I will keep it simple.
Laser Hair Removal is the latest and best way to currently remove hair. Not only does it remove hair, the effects are permanent. It works by targeting the hair follicles which produce hair directly. A Laser beam of 808nm in wavelength is fired directly into the skin and damages/destroys the follicle. Once the follicle has been destroyed it will no longer produce hair.
Q2 – It sounds painful, Is it?
Well, this is an extremely common question. Laser hair removal is NOT painful if it is carried out by someone who is qualified, trained and knows exactly what they are doing. If the person who is carrying out the treatment does not know what they are doing, then it can be painful. At Roots Laser Hair Removal, all of our staff are qualified and trained, therefore the treatment is pain free. We have some specific routines and practices we follow to minimize and eliminate pain.
We advise having 6 sessions to see great results. Each session is done every 4 weeks. So 6 sessions will last 6 months. The time the actual session will take depends on the area being treated. Full face for example takes around 40 minutes whereas Full legs can take around an hour.
Pricing is something that we at Roots try to keep affordable; our treatments start from as low as £30 and range all the way up to £1495 depending on how much of the body you would like to treat and how many sessions you would like to have.
Thanks for that Mariam. I’m sure my readers will appreciate the question and answer session and hopefully we have all learnt something from this!
If you have any other questions, you can find Roots on their website at www.rootslaser.co.uk and contact them directly. I’m sure they can help.
