Laser Hair Removal
The lowdown: Laser Hair removal is a fast, effective and way of removing unwanted hair on the face or body. Our laser is a medical grade ND Yag – this is NOT IPL. The laser is attracted to the melanin found in hair. Energy is produced and absorbed by the hair shaft before travelling to the follicle, heating and destroying its blood supply to prevent future hair growth.
Laser hair removal results are permanent; the treated follicles will die and not produce hair again. We recommend a minimum of 6 sessions to ensure all hair follicles are treated, as 20% of your hair follicles are dormant (i.e. not producing hair) at any one time and so will not be treated. During hormonal changes ( pregnancy or menopause) these follicles may or may not produce hair at which point they can also be treated.We are able to safely treat all skin types (Fitzpatrick scale 1-6). Results are faster on darker hair as the laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair, although it is possible to treat most hair colours it is not possible to treat blonde or white hair.
