Laser Hair Removal
Traditional methods such as waxing, shaving and depilatory cream application are time consuming and can only offer short-term results. Nd:YAG and Alexadrite laser hair removal treatments combine scientific hair removal technology to provide safe and effective solutions for hair reduction. The treatment relies on absorption of melanin in the hair follicle. The system transmits a light to the treatment area which is a beam of energy that passes through the skin to the hair follicle. The melanin in the hair absorbs this energy which transforms into heat disabling the hair follicle unable to produce new hair.
Each hair follicle has an individual growth cycle and to achieve unwanted hair reduction it is essential to treat the hair when in the growing stage. There are many factors that influence hair growth; age, metabolism, hormones, medication etc. An in-depth consultation with your hair removal specialist will be carried out before a treatment programme can proceed to assess your personal needs followed with a patch test to determine skin response. Can all hairs be treated? The most effective results have been achieved on fair and darker skin as the treatment relies on the absorption of light in the hair pigment (melanin). The treatment is unlikely to work for very blond, white or grey hair. The technology is supported by worldwide clinical research studies with proven results.
How many treatments are needed? The hair removal treatment will only destroy hair follicles that are in the growing stage. At any one moment hair follicles are either resting or dormant, this is why it is necessary to have repeated treatment sessions until all hair follicles have been through the growing stage. A course of treatments will treat hairs when they re-enter the growing stage. Recommended courses of 6-12 treatments may be required; however this does depend on many factors including skin and hair type, ethnic background, hormonal balance along with skin sensitivity. It is not possible to define how many treatments an individual will require.
The treatments are made easier with a state of the art cooling system making each treatment as comfortable as possible.
- 1 treatment every 4-8 weeks (an average of 6 - 12 sessions is usually required)
