Unwanted hair can be time-consuming, costly and painful to remove, with methods leading to skin problems such as razor burn, ingrown hairs and dryness. Laser hair removal is a solution that's safe and effective on all skin types and for both men and women.
We use Diode-Princess-Laser-S , which causes less skin heating, with lower risk of any damage to the skin.
What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
Before embarking on the therapy, however, people should make themselves aware of some side effects of laser hair removal, as well as some myths that surround the process. For most people, laser hair removal is a safe way to get rid of hair in unwanted places permanently or for long periods of time.
A few different side effects can appear after laser hair removal. Most side effects are minor and temporary. Anyone experiencing lasting side effects should consult their dermatologist. Redness and irritation Laser hair removal damages the follicles of the targeted hairs. The body reacts to this, and many people experience redness and irritation in the affected areas. The skin may tingle or feel tender, and may even appear to swell slightly. The symptoms are usually short-lived. The affected area may look similar to skin that has just been waxed or plucked. Some dermatologists use a topical anaesthetic to reduce how much a person’s skin reacts to the process. Irritation should ease after the initial reaction, usually within a few hours of the treatment. Swelling and redness may respond well to ice packs or a cool bath. Crusting Some people may experience skin crusting in the affected area. This is typically a minor issue but can be inconvenient. Crusting can sometimes lead to scabbing or scarring. By taking care of the treated area after laser removal, such as by using a moisturizer, a person may prevent any lasting issues from this treatment. Changes in skin colour Some people may notice minor colour changes to the treated area of skin. It may get slightly darker or lighter, following laser hair removal. People with lighter skin may be more likely to experience darker pigmentation changes. People with darker skin tones may be more prone to lighter pigmentation changes. These changes tend to fade away over time, and the skin returns to normal. Eye injury The hair removal procedure involves the use of powerful lasers. This means there is a risk of potentially serious eye injury, especially when a practitioner is working on a person’s face. Both the person receiving the treatment and the practitioner should wear protective eye equipment to help prevent injury while the procedure is carried out. Risk of skin infection As with other cosmetic hair removal methods, damaging hair follicles with a laser can create an infection risk. The affected area should be treated as a wound while it heals. People should report any signs of infection to a dermatologist. Finally, they should not apply over-the-counter (OTC) antibiotic creams to large areas of skin if an infection arises.
Is laser hair removal safe?
The majority of people who use it find that laser hair removal is safe and well-tolerated. There do not appear to be any long-term health risks associated with the procedure. However, some people may experience minor side effects after laser hair removal. People should ask their dermatologist to test how a small patch of skin reacts to the treatment before having it done on a larger area of skin. People wishing to have laser hair removal treatment should always use a fully-qualified practitioner.
Is laser hair removal painful?
For a couple of days after treatment, the affected skin may become red and tender. Many people describe the sensation as similar to a sunburn. The process itself, however, is typically not painful.
Does it work?
Laser hair removal therapy does work, but it rarely achieved permanent hair removal. Laser treatment can significantly reduce hair growth, nevertheless. After the first treatment, many people will only be hair-free for a few months. The hairs will eventually grow back, though they are often finer, lighter, and less likely to be noticed than before. Many people will require multiple sessions to achieve a more permanent or satisfactory solution to unwanted hair. The hair may grow back lighter and thinner with each subsequent session. After enough treatments, it may stop growing back altogether. Laser hair removal may also be more effective on dark hair. People with blond, reddish, or grey hairs may not notice much of a change, as laser lights are attracted to dark hair and are often not successful on light hair.
Myths about laser hair removal
There are several unfounded myths surrounding laser hair removal: Laser hair removal causes cancer The myth that laser hair removal therapy can cause cancer is unfounded. The lasers are specially designed to pass through the skin cells and target only the hair follicles deep within the skin. The lasers used in laser hair removal do produce a small amount of radiation. However, this radiation is not thought to be harmful, and there is no evidence that laser hair removal therapy causes skin cancer.
Laser hair removal causes infertility
Again, there is no evidence that laser hair removal causes infertility. The lasers only penetrate the skin and do not reach or affect any other organs. Laser hair removal is usually safe, even in sensitive areas such as the groin.
When to see a doctor
Anyone experiencing adverse reactions to laser hair removal should consider seeing their doctor. They can usually manage symptoms such as redness and swelling at home, but they should always report signs of skin infections to a doctor or dermatologist Reporting symptoms early allows for quick treatment and may help prevent any permanent changes. Anyone trying to become pregnant should speak to their doctor before getting laser hair removal. A doctor can advise on other options, as laser hair removal often requires multiple sessions that should not be undertaken during pregnancy.
Laser hair removal is safe and effective for most people when performed correctly. It may take multiple treatments to remove unwanted hair completely, and permanent hair removal is not always guaranteed. Some people may experience minor side effects after treatment, such as redness, swelling, and irritation and can usually treat these at home. Anyone who notices the signs of a skin infection should see a doctor.

Perfectly shaped eyebrows are the most important beauty feature of the face. Providing a lift for the eyes and a frame for the face, they are often the secret behind creating a youthful appearance. Powder eyebrows, also known as 3D powder brows, is a modern semi-permanent makeup technique that creates a soft, powdered look that subtly fills in your brows.
Transform your appearance with powder magic shading eyebrows! Kiss goodbye to your eyebrow pencils, gels, pomades, and brow brushes. With powder eyebrows you don’t have to tweak your eyebrows to look beautiful and feel confident.
POWDER MAGIC SHADING EYEBROWS – AMAZING ALTERNATIVE FOR MICROBLADING
Powder Magic Shading eyebrows is a very soft and gentle semi-permanent makeup technique, which makes it perfect if you have sensitive skin and if you have previous eyebrows procedure done. Powder eyebrows are achieved with a PMU machine without causing any harm to your natural eyebrows. This technique allows soft pixels of colour to be layered onto the brows to create the perfect shape, which results in more of a ‘velvet’ soft eyebrow powder look. Healed result looks very natural, graduating from lighter to darker shade and mimics the ‘effect’ you achieve when you use a brow powder or pencil, creating a fuller look.
Microblading is also a method of semi-permanent makeup. While it is promoted as a great solution for perfectly shaped eyebrows, microblading is far from safe and can be a beauty hazard. The process is very traumatic, as it involves cutting the skin to deposit the pigment and consequently, it increases the chances of skin infections, scars, damaged hair follicles, and poor aesthetic outcomes. When pigment gets into the blood the scars become blue and look ugly .
Unlike the powder eyebrows, microblading does not last a long time. You will require touch-ups every few months. During a touch-up procedure new scars appear, and old scars will not allow pigment to evenly dissolve into the skin. It means you will have to deal with more scars every visit and before you realize it, you will have scars for a lifetime.
Women with oily skin should also be warned: “hair” strokes expand with time, making brows look extremely unnatural.
Beautiful brows are an investment, so be smart. Think long term.
POWDER BROWS: THE PROCESS
Step 1. Consultation:
The day of your appointment, we discuss with you the type of look you want to achieve and your brow goals.
Step 2. Brow Mapping:

We recommend you the best colour shade that will complement your skin tone and hair colour.
Step 5. Filling in the Brows:

Step 6. The Healing Process and Aftercare Instructions:
We walk you through the healing process and give you aftercare instructions.
Step 7. Completing the Procedure:
It is important to complete the procedure by booking a follow-up appointment for powder brows. The second session lasts between 2 hours. It is crucial for the best results and is industry standard. After this session, you will not have to worry about shaping or styling your eyebrows for as long as a year to three years.
BENEFITS OF POWDER MAGIC SHADING EYEBROWS:
When it comes to Powder Brows Pretty Woman UK, Permanent Cosmetics stands out in terms of quality and customer experience.
The techniques used in permanent cosmetic procedures deposit pigment into the upper part of the dermal layer of the skin and it is considered permanent because it cannot be washed off. Nonetheless, with time fading will occur. Periodic maintenance or colour refreshing will be necessary to keep the desired look. The longevity of permanent makeup depends on many factors such as sun exposure, thickness of skin, skin care products used, and age.
How long does the permanent makeup procedure take?
The amount of time a permanent makeup procedure may take ultimately depends upon the client’s aesthetic goals. Expect to spend 2 to 3 hours at your appointment. There will be paperwork to take care of in addition to the initial colour and design consultation, and the actual procedure. The follow up appointment will not require as much time.
Normally, you would experience some discomfort or pain depending on your individual tolerance. No worries, there are many topical aesthetics specifically developed for the permanent makeup procedures. Your artist will make sure you feel as comfortable as possible during your session.
Assuming that the guidelines for sterilization and disinfection are followed, permanent cosmetic procedures are completely safe.
What to expect during and after the procedure?
Depending on the procedure performed you can expect various degree of swelling or tenderness. For example, eyebrows or lash enhancement usually show very little effect after procedure. However, lips or eyeliner may show minor to moderate swelling. Full lip colour will show more effects than blended lip liner and so on. The degree of effects also differs from individual to individual. People who take blood thinners can experience some minor bruising or slight bleeding during the procedure. It is rare, but it can occur. These post procedure effects will subside in 24-48 hours. Also, expect the colour to appear darker and bolder due to a natural process of scabbing and healing for the first 10 days. It is common for all permanent cosmetic procedures.
Two treatments are usually needed, at least 4 weeks apart. At the second treatment, we will assess the colour retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently.
You will have the opportunity to discuss shape and colour with the permanent makeup artist. In proposing a design for you, we will take into consideration your age, personality, current use of makeup, daily activities, and the colour and undertone of your skin. The artist will also take into consideration the shape of your lips, structure of your brow bone, or curvature of your eyelid before creating the shape outline. We will not start the procedure until you approve the design.
If you have any allergies, please check with us PRIOR to booking an appointment. We will provide you with a list of ingredients of all products we use. Skin test for allergic reaction is also available upon request.
There is little to no potential risk of irritation during an MRI as confirmed by many studies. You should inform your MRI technician that you have permanent cosmetics.
You can get Botox and fillers 6-8 weeks prior to your appointment or 8-10 weeks after your appointment.
