Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the frequently asked questions

Is the treatment suitable for anyone?

Treatment is not suitable for anyone who is recently tanned (naturally or artificially). There are certain medical conditions that may restrict treatment. Certain medications may also affect treatment suitability and results. This treatment is not suitable for those with darker skin types (Fitzpatrick scale 5&6) or for those with naturally fair, white or grey hair colouring. We can treat minors aged 16-18 with the permission and in the presence of a parent/guardian. Please contact our Laser Specialist who can advise you further on such issues.

Is it painful?

The treatment is not painful but you may experience some discomfort similar to the sensation of an elastic band snapping on the skin. The sensation is transient and the M22 Hair Removal treatment is a much gentler system to any other systems on the market.

How many treatments are required?

We typically recommend a series of 3+ treatments in order to achieve our best results. Treatments are generally performed at 4 week intervals on the face & 6 week intervals on the body. It is important that sun exposure is limited and protected by using a high sunscreen factor or avoided completely during a course of treatment.
