Unwanted hair growth can be a real nuisance. Traditional methods like shaving and waxing are time-consuming and only provide temporary relief.
Laser hair removal offers a permanent solution. This light-based treatment uses a powerful laser or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to destroy the hair follicles that cause unwanted hair growth.
Traditional hair removal methods such as shaving, tweezing and waxing are not only time consuming but also can irritate the skin. However, laser hair reduction is completely safe and can provide you with permanent results.
During your treatment, a qualified practitioner will move the handpiece across the area of unwanted hair to emit a focused beam of light. The targeted hair follicles will absorb this light and destroy them, preventing future growth. You may experience a slight stinging sensation during the procedure but this is not painful for most patients.
We use the SPLENDOR X laser which offers a cooling system to minimise discomfort. This device allows us to treat all areas of the body in as little as 30 minutes! This laser uses diode and Nd:YAG technology for all phototypes and focuses on the pigment of the hair without injuring surrounding tissue. This is particularly useful in Indian skin where the melanin in hair can cause problems for other lasers.
Laser hair removal is a fast, effective treatment with permanent results. During your consultation your skin care professional will recommend a treatment plan based on your unique needs. To prepare for the procedure, avoid waxing, plucking, or tweezing in the weeks leading up to your appointment. You should also avoid sun exposure as this can affect the outcome of your laser hair reduction.
During the treatment, your practitioner will move the laser device across your skin to target overactive hair follicles. The lasers’ focused light energy heats up the follicles and destroys them, preventing them from producing more hair.
The best candidates for this type of laser treatment have dark hair, though some light or blonde hairs can be treated as well. You should shave the day of your appointment and wear protective goggles during treatment. It’s also important to ensure your practitioner is suitably qualified and registered. Check that they’re on a register to ensure they meet set standards in training, skill and insurance.
Using razors and waxing to remove unwanted hair can be messy, expensive and time consuming. Laser or IPL technology safely and quickly targets the follicles of unwanted hair. After multiple treatments, the follicles are destroyed and the hair stops growing leaving smooth skin.
During the procedure, a qualified practitioner will move a device across your skin that emits pulses of light. Depending on your pain threshold, the treatment may feel like the flick of an elastic band or a small electric shock.
Unlike electrolysis, which works one follicle at a time, laser technology treats many follicles in seconds. However, it’s important to note that the process of achieving permanent hair reduction takes multiple sessions with regular follow-ups in order for your hair to be eliminated from the root. You’ll likely need regular sessions every 4 to 8 weeks until you reach your desired results. This is because your hair grows in cycles and some areas of the body grow hair faster than others.
Unwanted hair growth can be a major nuisance. Shaving, plucking and waxing are time consuming, painful, and only provide temporary results. Laser treatment is an effective and permanent solution for unwanted hair growth.
Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments use powerful light energy to permanently reduce unwanted hair, usually in the face, neck, chest, arms, legs and bikini line. This new technology is more precise than the traditional methods, delivering superior results in less time and without the pain.
While the cost of laser treatment varies from clinic to clinic, it is generally considered affordable when compared to other long term hair removal methods. It’s important to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner, with good equipment that is FDA cleared for this procedure. Otherwise, you could end up with burns and scarring that will never heal. The best way to avoid this is to check the practitioner is on a register and has experience in cosmetic procedures like laser hair reduction.
