FAQ

  • how does the Duetto MT laser hair removal work?

    Light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.

  • how is the treatment carried out?

    Prior to treatment, a consultation is conducted in which a medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment. There is also an opportunity for any questions you may have to be answered and time a for small patch test to be carried out*. During treatment the applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many hair follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.

    *£20 charge for test patch, redeemable against any laser treatment

  • am I suitable for treatment?

    Almost everyone is suitable for treatment with our Duetto MT. We use Alexandrite (the best laser for lighter skins) and Nd:YAG laser (the safest laser for darker skins) but can actually mix the two lasers together for even better results. This is the only laser in the world that can operate like this.

    Unfortunately, as grey/white hair has no melanin it is not suitable for treatment.

  • what will I see after treatment?

    The hair follicles are damaged by the heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seems to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.

  • how many treatments will I need?

    Only hair that is actively growing during treatment will be affected, therefore multiple treatments are necessary. Treatment is conducted every 4-8 weeks, depending on the area to be treated, until a satisfactory result is achieved. The required number of treatments varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are required for optimum results.

  • how long does treatment take?

    Treatments can take as little as 15 minutes up to two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.

  • how does the treatment feel?

    Treatment sensation varies but is often described as a “flick of an elastic band”. Typically no anaesthesia is required and most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable.

  • is there any down time?

    The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Adverse reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
