The laser used for laser hair removal produces energy that is absorbed by the pigment within the hair, which heats up and destroys the active hair follicles. This process will inhibit any further hair growth from that follicle.
Laser only works on hairs that are in the active stage of growth (anigen). Other hairs that are not in this stage will be targeted during subsequent treatments. The treatment is not suitable for those with blonde, grey, white and red hair, as they don’t have any pigment.
Once you begin your course of laser hair removal, it is important that you SHAVE between treatments, as this does not affect the follicle. DO NOT wax, pluck or epilate. This will have the opposite intended effect, as you are strengthening the follicle we are trying to destroy. The main contraindications for this treatment are sun exposure, active tan, pregnancy, epilepsy, and certain medications.
With a wide range of areas available for treatment, we offer full body laser hair removal, as well as laser hair removal for the face. Depending on the area we are treating, you will expect to repeat your treatment every 4 – 8 weeks. A full consultation and patch test is required prior to treatment.
