Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair.

During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Our painless hair removal system combines high powered diode laser energy with a highly efficient cooling system to guarantee safe and comfortable treatment for many skin types. Greater penetration depth to destroy deeply embedded hair follicles and short pulses at a high frequency makes the treatment more effective, faster and more gentle than ever before.

What to expect from your treatment

You’ll feel the sensation of the blade crossing your skin, like shaving with a razor. You you won’t feel any discomfort.ù

After the treatment you can expect extra smooth skin. Some clients experience slight redness which will fade quickly.

Downtime

There is practically no downtime after Laser Hair removal with the exception of avoiding heat sources for a few hours after treatment to allow skin to cool down. Skin may be red and feel slightly warm after treatement. Some other mild side effects such as tingly sensation or itchy skin is normal. Side effects will reduce within 24-48 hours.

Aftercare

Do not wax, tweeze, epilate or use chemical depilatories for two weeks before treatment, or at all in between laser treatments and avoid sun exposure to minimise laser burns.

FAQ

You will start to see results after your first appointment. However, it is the combined effect of multiple sessions that will lead to permanent hair removal.

The number of session depends on your hair thickness and growth type. We generally recommend at least 6 full sessions to see lasting results and up to 90% reduction in hair growth for normal hair types. One maintenance sessions per year might be required.

Laser hair removal is a long-term hair growth reduction method. It can reduce hair growth by up to 90%. The results of a laser hair removal treatment will depend on each person as well as the area of the body treated. While laser hair removal is not considered a permanent hair removal method as per the FDA standards, a lot of patients do experience permanent hair removal.

This really depends on the person. Each client has a different tolerance to pain, however, laser hair removal is not painful. Compared to waxing, laser hair removal does not hurt. The sensation is somehow unpleasant and can be uncomfortable but very tolerable. Laser hair removal feels like rubber band snapping against the skin.

before your appointment

Any treatment areas should be shaved completely prior to treatment. Legs should be shaved around 24 hours prior to your appointment to avoid irritation. Drinking alchohol and coffee in excess 24 hours before the procedure might increase skin sensitivity, making the procedure more painful.
