Laser Hair Removal
What is it used for?
Laser hair removal is a rapid yet gentle way of removing unwanted hair with long-lasting results. Almost all parts of the body can be treated, including the face, neck, armpits, bikini line, nipples, tummy line and arms and legs. For men, the most common area is the back. We use the Intense Pulsed Light’s (IPL®) system that offers customised treatment according to your hair colour, texture and location. Any hair with some pigment in it (e.g. black, brown and red) can be treated effectively.
In some cases, treatment can result in permanent removal of unwanted hair but most people see a reduction in hair growth of between 60-95% after a full course. It is also an effective treatment for ingrown hairs.
What are the benefits?
Excessive or unsightly body hair can be upsetting for both men and women. There are many methods to remove unwanted hair; none are totally permanent but laser hair removal is the most effective treatment available.
IPL® technology has been proved to create a permanent reduction in the number of re-growing hairs following each treatment in most skin types. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to your specific kind of hair and skin. A customised treatment programme will be designed for you along with an estimate of how many treatments you may need in order to meet your expectations.
What does the treatment involve?
Laser hair removal machines use focused light to penetrate the epidermis of the skin and target the underlying hair. The hair’s pigment absorbs the light and is destroyed – meaning that it is instantly targeted and further growth is hindered. The skin is left with a smooth appearance. Laser hair removal treatments take from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
What can I expect after treatment?
Some discomfort may be experienced during treatment and the sensation is often likened to an elastic band snapping against the skin. However, many clients comment that the treatment is much more comfortable than they expected with the pain more tolerable than waxing or threading.
