Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal is one of the most popular treatments for both men and women, by using pulses of laser light we can damage the hair follicle for permanent hair reduction. Unlike other methods, such as waxing and shaving, our laser hair removal device can offer a pain-free solution with long-lasting results for ALL skin types. The hair will become finer and softer becoming less visible and the growth will slow down more and more with each treatment. You can say goodbye to ingrown hairs, shaving rash and stubble in the treated area. You can also see an improvement in both the tone and texture of your skin.
Pain-Free Laser Hair Removal is:
Proven safe for all skin typesSuitable for dense coarse hair or thin sparse hairs
Treatment sessions are very fast, even for large areas such as the legs or back
Nearly any part of your body can be treated
Outstanding clinical results
The applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.
The hair follicles are damaged by heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.
Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Unwanted reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the area treated, until a satisfactory result is seen. The required number of treatments varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are needed for optimum results.
Light is emitted and absorbed by melanin within the hair, which is then converted to heat energy damaging the hair follicle.
With standard laser hair removal treatments, you can feel what is described as a ‘hot flick’ of an elastic band during treatment.
