LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Our medical grade Lightsheer Diode Laser offers a gentle, non-invasive & long lasting solution to unwanted hair on the face, back, legs, underarm, bikini line or any other body area. Treatment is suitable for both Men & Women.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?
You will be asked to wear goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light. The area will be sanitized and prepared for treatment. The hand piece then is applied to the skin and pulses of light disable the unwanted hairs. There are no hairs visible when leaving and the treated hairs will come to the surface and fall out over the following 7-21 days.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
Each pulse feels like a sting or pinch similar to the snap of a rubber band with a little heat for 2-3 minutes following treatment. Most clients tolerate the treatment well.
CAN ALL HAIR BE TREATED?
Darker hairs respond best to treatment however it is possible to adjust the system to target lighter hairs. Hairs that are white or light blonde do not respond well to treatment. We recommend a consultation to asses the suitability of the unwanted hair. Almost all body & facial areas are suitable for treatment.
ARE THERE ANY POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS?
Side effects are rare. You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling on the treatment area, however this typically disappears within 24 hours. We advice to cease sun exposure before and after each treatment to avoid any complications with skin response. Following treatment, clients can generally return to normal activities immediately.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
This system has been approved by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) to permanently reduce the number of hairs regrowing following treatment. The number of sessions depends on several factors including-area to be treated, colour & texture of the hair, hormonal influences, medical history etc.
The average number of sessions is usually between 6-8, however a customised treatment programme will be designed & discussed with you at your initial consultation estimating how many treatments may be required.
WHAT IS THE COST OF TREATMENT?
All consultations are free of charge or obligation. Guideline prices are listed on the clinic price list, however we will give an accurate price to each individual at your initial consultation.
