So, you've made the decision and you're ready to get laser hair removal – what happens now?

If you've never had it done before, laser hair removal can be an intimidating process. What will it feel like? How long will it take, and how many sessions will you need? All these questions and more are likely on your mind. 

At Caci, we were the first to bring the technology to New Zealand and have been getting great results for our clients for over 20 years, so we know what we're talking about. When it comes to the actual treatment process, we know how important it is to feel informed and included in the journey.

Here, we're breaking down exactly what happens at a laser hair removal treatment, from the initial consultation to the treatment itself.

Get all the details 

At your consultation stage, our expert staff will discuss your hair removal options with you and make sure you're informed about everything you need to know prior to having the treatment. 

It’s important to note that not everyone is a candidate for the treatment (certain hair colour types can make it more difficult for the laser to work effectively, for example), so this stage is important for us to make sure you know what your options are. 

Quick and professional treatment 

During the treatment, a concentrated light beam is targeted at the treatment area, where it is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft and follicle. Heat is generated, which loosens the hair and also disables the cells involved in hair growth to prevent future hairs from growing back.

Some people describe the sensation of the laser as like a rubber band being flicked against your skin – but the level of discomfort varies between individuals and the areas being treated. Generally, the coarser the hair, the greater the sensation.

Our staff are highly trained and professional, so they will ensure the treatment process is as quick and painless as possible. A single session can take as little as 15 minutes, depending on the area, so you'll be on your way in no time! 

After your treatment

We recommend a course of treatments for each of our clients - this is to ensure you get long-lasting results. Our expert team will be there every step of the way to look after you throughout your treatment journey, and ensure you're getting the results you want.
