Laser hair removal is a scientifically proven, rapid, yet gentle way of removing or reducing unwanted facial and body hair by 80-100% including chin, underarm, bikini-area, legs, chest & back comfortably & permanently!
Laser hair removal is a cost effective permanent solution to unwanted hair. In the laser hair removal process, as the laser is passed over the area being treated, the hair follicals are damaged, reducing further growth and leaving a silky smooth feel, even on sensitive skin.
Laser light is a safe, effective, and convenient alternative to traditional methods, such as electrolysis, shaving and waxing. It is fast and can be used to treat large areas quickly, often in only the time it takes to shave, allowing you to continue on your day without the need for any time off.
Age, sex, weight, metabolism, hormones, gentics, ethnicity, medications, body location and seasonality all affect hair growth. At any one time hairs from various parts of the body are at one of 3 cyclic phases (Anagen, Catagen or Telogen). This cycling prevents all body hair falling out at the same time and taking months to grow back.
Phase 1 – Anagen
Hair’s active growth phase; Anagen, can last several years. 80-85% of hair is in this phase at any given time. During Anagen the hair has abundant melanin.
Phase 2 – Catagen
The Catagen or transition / regressive phase lasts about 2 – 4 weeks. In this phase hair stops growing but is not yet shed. About 3-4 % of body hair is in this phase.
Phase 3 – Telogen
Lasting weeks to months, the Telogen or resting phase is when hair falls out and a new hair begins to form. At least 10-15% of body hair is in this phase.
Catagen or Telogen phase hair may not be fully destroyed during treatment as the hair follicle is technically no longer attached to the root.
Anagen phase hair is ideal for laser removal. Because only 80 – 85% of hair follicles are in the Anagen phase at the same time, multiple treatments are usually needed to remove all hair from each area. Depending on the body area being treated, most people require 6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Laser hair removal can be used for both facial and body hair on both men and women. It is also an effective treatment for ingrown hairs. No more irritating skin and red bumps caused by those ingrown hairs we are all affected by and you will never need to shave or wax ever again.
Laser hair removal is a non-intrusive treatment involving an intense laser light penetrating into and below the dermal layer where it is absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin). The melanin absorbs the light and heats up. This heat damages the hair follicle without hurting the surrounding tissue. The damaged hair follicle stops producing hair or replaces thick adult hair with a fine, light-colored hair (vellus hair).
The laser works by disabling hair in the active growth phase (Anagen) at the time of treatment.
Because not all hairs are in this stage during treatment, laser hair removal normally requires several sessions to achieve the desired hair reduction results; typically with 6 sessions per area.
Laser hair removal is carried out by our fully trained laser hair removal technicians.
An 80% – 100% hair reduction in hair growth is possible. Each successive laser hair removal treatment will result in a reduction in hair growth. Hair will grow progressively slower, lighter and finer with each treatment.
Improvements may be seen after only one treatment, but repeat treatments are usually required to achieve desired results. It generally takes around 6 treatments to affect all the hair follicles in each area, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The treated area will “shed” hair over the next 3-4 weeks. Results may vary depending on individual genetic factors including:
There have been many advances in laser hair removal technology recently and we use the safest and best laser hair removal system available on the market today – the Nd:YAG laser. All of our laser systems are very safe and CE and FDA approved. There are no long term health hazards from laser energies used in our systems and unlike other hair removal systems, with our advanced laser equipment results are permanent.
Our laser equipment provides for enhanced comfort during treatment, speed and accuracy. The system uses a unique cooling “chilltip” to minimise skin irritation that other methods may create. The laser is NOT placed directly on the skin!
Most clients report feeling comfortable during treatment, others experience mild discomfort similar to being snapped by a rubber band. Most patients tolerate the procedure without numbing, but for sensitive areas a numbing cream can be applied. Temporary pinkness may be experienced for a short time after treatment.
Our lasers offer the fastest results in the least number of treatments and shortest time per session, ensuring maximum patient comfort and safety. Finally, the hair removal Laser is a precise instrument that can be adjusted to damage only the hair follicle while minimally affecting the surrounding skin.
