Laser Hair Removal offers a permanent up to 80% reduction results, available to all skin types. The treatments are affordable, quick and with minimal discomfort, so why wait?
Who Can Be Treated And Where
Women and Men above 18 years old. Not suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Not suitable for blonde and grey hairs because of the lack of Melanin. The results depend on type of hair, laser treatment parameters, number of treatments and treatments schedule. We strongly advise the client to respect the treatment intervals to have the best possible outcome. Extra care should be taken with clients that are taking photosensitizing drugs such as: acne medications; Anticancer drugs; Antidepressants; Antihistamines and Antipsychotic drugs. These medications may cause hyperpigmentation, dermatitis and increase skin sensitivity on area treated. It is advised to test the skin first.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary And How Long Does Each Treatment Take
We recommend a course of 6 to 8 treatments every 5 weeks depending on the body area treated. The duration of each session depends on area treated, it can vary from 5 minutes to 2 hours. As the treatments progress the amount of treated hair diminishes and therefor the sessions will become quicker. Maintenance treatments are recommended for long lasting results. A test patch is is required 24 to 48 hours prior to your treatment.. All pre and post advice care is fully explained during your Consultation.
How Long Does It Last
The hair reduction is permanent, however it depends on each individual’s amount of hair, hair type, skin type and hair color. With repeated treatments hair cycles are synchronized increasing the effectiveness with each consecutive treatment. Hormonal disorders such as polycystic ovaries syndrome can influence the results of the treatments. Maintenance treatments are highly advised to maintain the results achieved, there can vary from one to three treatments yearly.
Is It Painful?
The treatment is not painful, but a slight warming sensation can be felt. In order to minimize skin heating and to reduce the likelihood of skin reactions , it is important to cool the skin before and after the treatment. The cold air cooling method during the treatment protects the epidermis from overheating and minimizes pain and discomfort. The cooling cold air system cools the epidermis before during and after laser energy without interfering with the laser beam.
Pre Treatment Advice
A medical history is taken at consultation, we rely on the Client to inform us for may changes to this. We need to know of any medication you are taking both prescribed and over the counter.
The area treated should be free from make-up, perfume, deodorant and body or face creams, be careful when using spray deodorant prior to treatment.
It is a pre-condition that there should be no active tan. The area should not be suntanned . Fake tan should not be applied. In case of active tan, wait 3 weeks before starting the treatments. In case of a planned sunny holiday you can have treatment 3 weeks before date of departure.
