Here is what you need to know

MySkin Laser on 14 August 2015

The problem about back hair is that it’s hard to see it for yourself (unless you attempt some particularly strenuous yoga moves in front of the bathroom mirror!). But you know it’s there—which makes for constant shyness and a personal aversion to backless dresses and bikinis!

Another problem is that back hair is hard to get rid of using the normal hair removal methods: shaving and waxing. No matter how hair-less, it’s not worth pulling out your back trying to apply hot wax! And forget going to the beauty salon every six weeks.

The best way to get rid of back hair is permanently and harmlessly. But is there such a way?

Yes, of course there is! By now you will have heard about laser hair removal: the permanent and safe way to get rid of pesky back hair, forever. Pools, beaches and glamorous balls—can you hear the new ‘you’ calling out?

It’s time to be yourself. Call MySkin to schedule a free skin consultation with our specialists.

Where on my back can I get laser hair removal?

The short answer? Anywhere you want!

Upper back, lower back, shoulders, or all of the above—there is no restriction for laser hair removal on the back. Larger areas, however, will take longer to treat and will have an associated cost.

Are the results permanent?

Yes, the effects of laser hair removal on the back will be permanent with the right number of sessions.

The overall effectiveness and required number of laser hair removal sessions will depend on your skin tone as well as the colour and thickness of the hair to be removed. There is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ approach so it’s important to consult a laser hair removal specialist first.

How much does it cost?

Since the entire back is a large area, the cost of laser hair removal on the back will vary. The final cost will depend on how many treatments are required for permanent effects, and the total desired treatment area.

What is the process... and is it 100% safe?

Laser hair removal for the back works by focusing laser light on the desired back hair to be removed. The laser is set at a specific wavelength and targets the pigment in back hair, whilst avoiding the pigment in skin. The laser travels down to the hair root, destroying the hair and preventing further hair regrowth.

Laser hair removal is completely safe when undertaken by a professional using high quality laser equipment.

At MySkin, our equipment is world class and can work with a variety of skin tones and hair colours. Our highly trained Laser Technicians are Qualified Beauty Therapists, Dermal Therapists or Nurses. Our clinicians are also manufacturer certified and go through extensive practical-based training. We don’t just meet clinical laser standards—we raise the bar.

How do I find a good laser hair removal clinic?

It is extremely important to avoid the under-qualified service that comes from low-cost laser clinics. When improperly operated, hair removal lasers can cause burns, and in some cases, scarring.

Always look for a well-recommended laser hair removal clinic with highly trained professionals and high quality laser equipment.
