LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Stay confident with Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a treatment option for people with unwanted body or facial hair. The procedure is quick and virtually painless with the care of an experience technician. It targets hairs that are at least 1 millimetre long using laser beams of low-level light energy to destroy them where they grow.
Light waves used during this process have been shown to selectively target single cells deep inside skin without damaging other tissues surrounding it.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments required varies for each client. It depends on your hair and skin type and the area being treated. However, we normally suggest 10-12 sessions with maintenance to ensure a good result. Treatments are normally 4 – 6 weeks apart, however, this can increase as you are further into your treatments and seeing less and less hair regrowth. Every body part has a different hair growth cycle so results will vary depending on the stage your hair follicles are in at the time of treatment.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Depending on the area being treated, treatment times can be as little as 15 minutes.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective and affordable hair removal options available. However, no clinic is able to claim 100% permanent hair removal due to factors such as changing hormones, genetics, and hair follicle cycles.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?
You will experience minimal discomfort with laser hair removal, especially when compared with alternatives, such as waxing. After each treatment, the hair becomes thinner and discomfort is decreased further. You will feel a slight tingling on most areas being treated and on particularly sensitive areas, the feeling can be compared to being flicked with a rubber band. Trust us, when you see the results you will be amazed at how pain-free the experience was!
TIP: To reduce discomfort, ensure you have shaved well and have no tanned pigment on your skin.
