Laser hair removal treatments work by passing light through the skin which is then absorbed into the melanin in the hair shaft that is responsible for regrowth and thermally destroys the cells. After approximately 6 treatments, you will have gotten rid of up to 90% of your unwanted hair permanently.
Our laser hair removal machines combine 3 different wavelengths to ensure complete removal of the hair. These are;
- 755nm – This is for use with thin hair removal and is very effective in patients with lighter hair or for hair around the lips/eyebrows etc.
- 808nm – Used for most kinds of hair removal.
- 1064nm – Used for the deepest layer of hair as this energy can penetrate deeper into the skin. This is especially good for patients with darker hair.
Laser hair removal is a safe, fast and painless method of permanent hair removal that can be used for any skin type or colour and can be used to remove any unwanted hair from any area of the body, including the face, arms, armpits, chest, back, bikini area and legs.
Laser hair removal sessions can be as short as fifteen minutes and all we ask of you is that you stay out of the sun, shave the area that is going to be treated and avoid using products such as lotions and creams to ensure that you receive optimum results. Nobody will be able to know that you are undergoing laser hair removal treatments unless you want them to know.
The majority of our clients describe the sensation of a laser hair removal treatment as a mild hot pinch, similar to being flicked with an elastic band and in most cases, the sensation goes almost immediately.
