What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is suitable for both men and women. More than 70% of males and 85% of females now use laser hair removal with a success rate of 85-99% permanent hair reduction after just 6 to 10 treatments.

How Does it Work?

Laser hair removal works by targeting high laser energy through the skin to the hair follicle. The pigment in each hair follicle absorbs the laser light; this process gradually causes the hair follicles to become damaged so that the hair is unable to grow.

What Happens During Treatment?

Laser Hair Removal is a safe procedure, that is customised according to your specific skin type and hair colour. Our laser technicians will shave away any hair above the surface of the skin.The devices handpiece is moved over the treatment area, emitting light-based energy in short pulses. The condensed light will heat the hair to a point that will affect its ability to regrow. Hair that is hidden beneath the skin at the time of treatment will shed over the next week or two.

Is The Procedure Painful?

Laser Hair Removal is virtually painless and is a much more pleasant treatment experience than waxing, tweezing, and electrolysis, which are much more aggressive and damaging to the skin. You may feel a short burst of heat as the condensed light reaches your hair follicles, and some people describe the sensation as a tingling or a slight pinching sensation.

Am I A Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Most individual are suitable for Laser Hair Removal Treatments. Laser light is attracted to dark hair follicles and therefore the darker the hair follicle, the more likely it is to permanently remove your unwanted hair.

Can All Hair Be Treated?

Laser Hair Removal is limited only by hair colour. The technology uses the hair pigment to transfer heat into the hair follicles beneath the skin. Treatments are proven to be effective on any hair with at least some pigment. This includes a wide range of hair colours, from auburn to brown and dark black hair. Unfortunately, the effective treatment of white and light blond hairs is limited due to their lack of pigment.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Laser Hair Removal will not damage your skin, if you are being treated by good quality technology and by a qualified therapist. After effects are minimal with only slight swelling and pinkness to sensitive skins, which usually fades in a few minutes depending on your skin type. However, it is still important to follow post and aftercare advice stringently. And please inform us of any contradictions and deviations you have made to your aftercare plan.
