Laser Hair Removal

Latest Technology – 808nm Painless Diodo Laser. This Laser can be effectively used on most skin types and colours

How does laser hair removal work?

The laser works by emitting a light that goes into the hair follicle where it is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair shaft and follicle. The light energy is converted to heat, which affects the active matrix that produces hair. This process inhibits or delays future hairs from forming. The heat goes under your skin without burning your skin. Different types of lasers can be found in the market.

 

The first step: Consultation Form

Once we make sure you are the right candidate for a laser treatment: a personalised treatment plan with an approximation of how many sessions we think you will need, prices,  will be provided, making sure we offer you the best service.

 

How many sessions I will need?

We can’t answer this upfront because every person has a different reaction, but it normally takes between 8-10 session to be hair free. A minimum of 6 sessions are needed for good results. Each treatment should be performed roughly 4-6 weeks apart. However, this is dependent on age, hair type, hormone levels and other factors. A yearly maintenance session may be required after.
