Laser hair removal is a popular, non-surgical treatment that gets rid of unwanted hair on the body.

A lot of people have various questions about laser hair removal before undergoing the treatment.

Here are some frequently asked questions from patients on laser hair removal:

Laser hair removal can be dangerous in inexperienced hands. Burns, scars and permanent changes to your skin color are some of the possible side affects, should you visit the wrong practitioner or aesthetician. It is important to ensure that you visit someone who has medical knowledge and is skilled in using lasers.


Patients see a dramatic reduction in the density and thickness of hair in the treated area. Once you complete your treatment plan, you should expect long-term hair reduction. Visit a clinic where the consultation is free, so that you can discuss with your aesthetician what results you should expect.


Depending on the area treated and the hair growth, sessions last anywhere between 15 – 30 minutes.


Generally after each treatment you will see a noticeable reduction in the number of hairs that regrow in the treatment area.
On average, most people will require a minimum of 6 treatments, but if you have dark or tanned skin, you may require more. Facial hair and fine body hair require approximately 10 treatments and possibly require ongoing maintenance.


Laser hair removal is not as painful is waxing, however there is some level of discomfort which depends on the treated area, the texture of the hair and skin.
The darker the skin the more sensitive as there is more pigment in both hair and skin. However, after each treatment the hair becomes lighter or thinner and pain subsides.
Tip – it hurts less if you shave before getting laser.

How to avoid weight gain during the festive season

It’s December and whilst we are excited to ring in the month of festivities, we’re also dreading the weight gain that comes with it. Even if you have superhuman powers, the holiday season can be challenging for almost everyone. Staying on track with a healthy routine whilst the air is filled with mince pies, cookies and wine can be extremely exhausting and frankly, not much fun at all!

Here are a few things you can do to avoid gaining weight this month (and ensuring a happier you come January!)

Start your day with a bang

OK, we know it’s difficult. But starting your day with exercise can result in a healthy, stimulated mind all day long. Better yet, you will free up your schedule for other appointments and won’t have to worry about getting to the gym in the evenings! Yoga and Pilates are great for the body and soul; we highly recommend you try it.

Don’t save calories for later

Avoid starving throughout the day just so you can indulge at night! This sets you up for failure as you will most likely overeat, especially if you are faced with high calorie choices.  It is better to snack on healthy items such as fruits and proteins throughout the day.

Bring a healthy treat

Why not bring your own healthy treat to the party? Your dish might not be the most popular but at least it will help you avoid succumbing to your sweet tooth! And you might even teach everyone a thing or two about healthy eating.

Keep hydrated

Did you know that 70% of hunger is actually just thirst? It is important to remain hydrated in order to keep hunger pangs at bay. H20 also ensures your skin looks refreshed and radiant – perfect festive season concoction!

And if none of the above sound enticing enough for you, there’s always fat removal treatments like Velashape and Coolsculpting at Aesthetics International in Dubai!

Stay on your feet

People tend to laze around during the festive season in front of the TV or sleeping it off. Avoid that and go around for any activities that may be happening around town. This would also help you capitalize on the time otherwise you don’t have as well burn those extra calories that would build on if you stay home.

How to get rid of pigmentation

Sun spots, pigmentation, and discolouration on the face can cause serious distress for those of us who strive for radiant skin.

Blame it on years of tanning and sun exposure! With age, the repeated exposure to ultraviolet rays can cause Melanin, a compound responsible for pigmentation as well as protecting the skin, to clump together and form hyper-pigmentation. This appears in the form of brown spots and discoloured patches on the skin.

Apart from regular application of sun screen, there are other ways to help get rid of those pesky spots.


Chemical peels are one of the most popular non-invasive treatments performed to help rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. Cosmelan is a peeling treatment targeted at removing pigmentation and spots. It’s a completely safe and effective technique for peeling which involves no side effects and is suitable to all skin types.

It’s a two­-step treatment; first the peel is applied to your skin by a trained aesthetician and you are made to wear the peel mask for the number of hours as recommended. The mask is then washed off and a cream is applied which aids in protecting the growth of new skin cells.
