What is laser hair removal?
It is a procedure that removes hair from the body by disabling follicles from producing hair using a long-pulsed laser. Laser technology works by emitting wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin).
The success of this treatment is dependent on the colour of the hair in relation to the colour of the skin and the time at which the laser treatment for hair removal is carried out. Treatments are most effective on darker and coarser hair because it has a lot of pigment and can absorb a lot of energy. Fine hair cannot absorb so much energy.
Is it permanent?
We think so, but the law defines ‘permanent’ as for ever and we have only offered this service for nearly 20 years! Our laser offers you virtually painless hair removal far more comfortable than other methods of hair removal and other lasers.
Laser hair removal is safe for both face and body and will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hair free. Areas such as bikini, under-arms and legs are treatable without side effects. The hair growth will diminish and the skin condition improve.
How many treatments will I need?
Although no guarantees are given, it usually takes six to eight treatments for most people to achieve successful long term results. However, the number of treatments could vary subject to underlying medical conditions and medication.
Initially, you will need to book a *laser consultation and patch test that takes approximately 20 minutes and includes a thorough check on medical history and an explanation of how hair removal with laser works. A patch test is then carried out on the skin to enable you to monitor the effects before making any decision to proceed
