Laser hair removal
No more painful wax appointments or rushing with razors!
Waxing and shaving are a thing of the past. Laser hair removal offers you the luxury of silky-smooth and ready-for-anything skin all year round. Treatments are tailored to eradicate hair from the chosen face and body areas and the sessions are fast, effective, affordable – and the reduction is permanent! Although laser is fast, it can only treat your hair during the ‘growth’ phase, so a series of 6-12 treatment sessions will be required for those silky-smooth results.
How it works
Permanent hair reduction with laser.
Our fully-trained laser technicians can treat any skin tone from dark to fair using our medical-grade Candela Gentle YAG and Gentle PRO lasers.
The laser aims a concentrated beam of light at your hair follicles. With darker skin types, the laser is attracted to the blood supply to the hair follicle. The pigment in your hair follicle will absorb the light and heat, damaging the follicle enough to discourage further growth, with the hair eventually falling out.
Optimising your results
Preparation is important when it comes to laser hair removal.
Ensure you shave the area to be treated roughly 12 hours prior to your laser hair removal session. Make sure you avoid wax/depilatory cream, fake tan and getting sunburnt up to two weeks before your session. This is important, as the treatment uses a cosmetic laser that shoots a concentrated beam of light directly at the pigment in your hair follicles and will also sizzle any pigment on your skin, including tanning products.
Laser hair removal faqs
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal has fast become one of the most effective options for permanent hair reduction. No laser clinic can claim 100% hair removal, as some hair will always strive to grow back. Re-growth can be affected by hormones and other biological factors which can vary from person to person.
Can laser be used for excessive hair on males?
Yes, a large percentage of our clientele are male and the most common areas treated are back, chest and arms.
Will laser hair removal get rid of ingrown hairs?
Laser can decrease the chance of experiencing ingrown hairs. When there is no hair in the follicle, there is less chance of an ingrown hair occurring.
Can all hair colours be treated with laser hair removal?
Using our medical grade equipment, our fully trained laser technicians can target any hair colour, with the exception of grey, pale red, white and white blonde.
Can laser hair removal be performed on darker skin tones?
Yes, our Gold Standard YAG medical grade lasers offer safe and effective hair reduction for clients with darker skin types.
