No waxing, No shaving, No unwanted hair, No mess, No worries. Laser Hair Removal is your solution for smooth, hair free, in-grown free skin.
Unwanted hair can be embarrassing for both men and women. Many people experience excessive hair growth on their face or bodies due to hereditary factors or to hormonal changes resulting from puberty, age, menopause or pregnancy. Waxing, threading and plucking are painful methods of hair removal and often lead to ingrown hairs. Shaving and depilatory creams often lead to annoying rashes and irritated skin.
Laser Hair Removal is a safe, effective, and commonly used treatment, providing optimal results in the removal of unwanted hair in all areas. Since the laser targets active hair follicles, each treatment progressively reduces the amount of active hair. Achieve permanent results, leave your skin feeling smooth and fresh without the growth of stubble and ingrown hairs. Also, you will save time and money by not having to go through the waxing process on a regular basis.
Using the world's leading technology in Laser hair removal (Candela Gentle-LASE) to employ optimal wavelength (755nm) of high-intensity light energy that penetrates deep into skin tissue to selectively target and disrupt hair shaft and follicles resulting in permanent hair reduction while leaving the skin unaffected. While the laser beam is highly intense in order to destroy the hair follicles, it is unable to reach any internal organs and is a safe procedure.
Laser hair removal treatment is a longer lasting hair removal solution. It is safe and can achieve up to 95% hair loss. Usually 6 - 8 sessions are recommended to get to the best results as actively growing hair follicles are destroyed by the laser light, treatments are typically 4-6 weeks apart.
The laser creates a beam of high-intensity light that penetrates deep into skin tissue where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat, targeting the melanin/pigment in the hair hence selectively damaging the hair follicle and disabling the blood supply to the root without causing damage to the surrounding tissues.
Tolerance levels vary for all. In most cases clients will say that they felt no pain to feeling a flick of a rubber band. Candela's patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) provides ultimate epidermal cooling for increased client safety and comfort.
Erythema (redness) and slight edema (swelling) are very normal after having a laser treatment and usually resolve after a few hours.
As the laser beam is absorbed by melanin/pigment, we advise that patients avoid ANY sun exposure and sunless tanning products for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment and 2 weeks after.
We recommend shaving prior to your treatment to minimise sensitivity and to reduce costs. However, for the face, it is best to leave the area untouched so it can be assessed by our technician.
No waxing, tweezing, electrolysis, threading or bleaching the area at least 4 weeks prior to the treatment.
The number of treatments required is dependent on several factors. The colour and density of hair as well as different body areas being treated will play a factor in the number of treatments. Usually 6-8 treatments are recommended.
Due to the nature of the human body, it may take multiple treatments for improvement. There are several cycles of hair growth and a certain number of hairs may only be growing at a particular time.
Typically most treatments are 4-6 weeks apart
Hair can take up to two weeks to shed after the treatment.
There are many different things that can be applied to the skin after a laser treatment. Most common are aloe vera, cold compresses, and most importantly a 30+ SPF sun block.
There are clinical studies showing improvement of up to 95%, but results will vary from person to person depending on several factors such as age, skin type, amount of hair, hair colour, and hair texture. We can assess whether a laser treatment is suitable for you during our free consultation.
It is recommended to defer laser treatments during pregnancy as factors such as hormone changes may affect the results.
