LASER HAIR REMOVAL
What is it?
Laser Hair Removal is a process of removing unwanted hair by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle.
How does it work?
The laser emits energy which is absorbed by melanin in the hair. If in the right stage of growth, this causes the hair follicle to overheat and damages the bulb, preventing re-growth. This is know as photothermolysis.
What happens during treatment?
Gel is applied before the laser head is passed over the area being treated, shooting light pulses to destroy the follicle. The treatment is virtually painless and is suitable for a wide variety of hair and skin types.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime associated with this non-invasive procedure.
What results will I see?
The treatment is FDA approved to give permanent hair reduction of up to 90%. The darker your unwanted hair, the better it draws the energy of the laser beam t it, giving greater hair reduction. Expected results will be discussed in your consultation.
