Laser Hair Removal
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a powerful laser or ‘Intense Pulsed Light’ (IPL) to remove unwanted hair.
The laser used in the procedure is attracted to the pigment of the hair follicle, which means the darker the hair, the better it draws the energy of the laser beam to it, giving greater hair reduction.
We only use effective technologies, and to ensure safe, effective results, we always test your suitability for any of our laser treatments.
Who is an Ideal Candidates?
Treatment is safe on all skin types and colours, so suitable for anyone looking for long term, silky-smooth results. As the laser is attracted to the pigment of the hair follicle, the only consideration is whether your unwanted hair has enough pigment to be treated.
Who is Not a Good Candidate?
Lasers target pigmentو so as long as your hair is not red, white or grey then you are likely to be a suitable candidate for laser hair removal. Also we do not treat who is pregnant or breastfeeding.
Risks and Safety
For most people the only side-effect reported is a redness. For others there may be a little sensitivity in the area that has been treated, Aloe Vera gel can usually be applied to calm this down. You may see some blisters or burn on your skin after treatment.
After the laser treatment avoid heat stimulation such as hot baths or showers, saunas, and steam. Avoid cardiovascular exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation.
