LASER HAIR REMOVAL

DIODE LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. The hair is permanently removed and the follicle is disabled, laser hair removal provides clients of both sexes with a convenient, hassle-free, long-term hair removal solution. 

We use a high quality diode laser that provides maximum client comfort with its integrated ‘Crystal Freeze’ cooling technology and dual wavelength operating modes. We work with all skin and hair types to provide a virtually painless and fast treatment.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCESS 

  • The Diode 810nm red light beam is converted into heat targeting melanin (colour, pigment) in the hair follicle.

  • Multiple treatments (6-8) are needed to achieve maximum results of up to 75% hair free reduction. Those with Blonde, grey or red hair unfortunately DO NOT respond to the laser treatment.

  • Anyone 18+ can be treated anywhere on the body & face other than eyebrows and it is safe and effective on all skin colours.  

  • Some people have skin issues caused by hair growth such as red, sore, itchy, infected, cystic and blemished skin etc, these skin issues can be resolved using laser hair reduction.

  • Some people have hair growth due to hormonal conditions like P.C.O.S this can be treated with the laser hair removal but due to the nature of the hair growth there is a possibility of ongoing maintenance treatments

  • After a good hair reduction is achieved you will usually need to come back for a yearly maintenance treatments, this can vary depending on your hair own hair growth, hormonal and heredity changes.

  • The majority of treatments are painless and the sensation you may feel is similar to an elastic band ping

  • 1-3 weeks after the treatment hair will naturally shed resulting in slower, finer & sparse regrowth

  • Treatments are 4 weeks apart for areas on the face and 6 weeks for body

 

PRE-TREATMENT ADVICE

  • Do not expose the skin to UV or self-tan for 4 weeks before treatment and or in between treatments

  • Avoid intense exfoliation, microdermabrasion or peels for at least 7 days before treatment

  • Do not use perfumed products for 24-28 hours before treatment

  • Please shave a day or two prior to your appointment, this ensures the lasers energy accurately treats hair follicles

  • Please do not remove hair by any other method than shaving at any time during the laser process. No plucking, threading or waxing. If the hair is removed this way then the laser cannot access the follicle
