Permanent Hair Removal
There are so many ways to remove unwanted hair, daily shaving or messy waxing for example, but few ways to remove it permanently. In our laser hair removal clinic we use a number of treatments to remove unwanted hair for good:
- Laser Hair Removal
- IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Hair Removal
How it Works
Hair reduction works when the light produced by the Laser or IPL equipment is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle (melanin).
The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the cells in the hair follicle which are responsible for hair growth, without damaging the surrounding cell, resulting in the permanent removal of hair.
The Laser or IPL is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many hair follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of the skin and the IPL or Laser hair removal process is repeated until the entire area is covered.
Laser Hair Removal vs IPL Hair Removal
Both IPL and Laser Hair Removal treatments generate heat to kill the hair follicle. The hair removal method used depends on your skin tone and hair type. This is identified as part of your hair removal consultation by our highly qualified practitioners. You will be patch tested during the consultation and your skin will need to be free of natural and/or fake tan.
A treatment will be required every 4-6 weeks in order to catch each cycle of your hair growth. Over time, the follicles from each cycle are eliminated forever!
You may see a change in hair cover after a couple of treatments. Permanent hair removal takes place when all cycles of your hair growth are gone. This is unique to each client so the number of treatments can vary from 6-12 depending on you and the area of the body we are treating.
You’ll be surprised how quickly you notice the difference. But once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.
