“Why spend £1000’s on waxing in your lifetime when you can get up to an 80% permanent reduction for a fraction of the cost.”Specialising using the latest technology and techniques to deliver high quality, safe and effective permanent hair reduction. We use Fotona’s SP Dynamis laser system which offers the highest performance of any ND-YAG laser system which means we can provide fast and effective aesthetic treatments to large areas and all skin types.
Am I Suitable For Treatment?
Fotona laser also has a computerized scanner. The entire hair growth area is scanned with a minimum of 13% overlap so that no hair follicle is missed and the chances of side effects are also minimized. Most other laser hair removal systems are done by free hand. Treatments with our laser require no anaesthetics and there is no down time with very low risk of side effects.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The laser targets the melanin which can be found in your hair follicle. Laser energy is absorbed by the melanin which then travels down the follicle dispersing its thermal energy. It uses the melanin to introduce heat in the hair follicle. This damages the follicle and weakens the blood supply of the hair ensuring it is not able to produce as quickly. As you would expect the more treatments you have, the slower the rate of growth.
Why Choose Laser treatments over IPL?
Laser technology is by far the most effective and safest way for permanent hair reduction. Lasers are much more precise than IPL where laser can target darker, coarse hair whilst ensuring your surrounding skin is left undamaged. IPL is intense pulse light. Unlike laser which is a concentrated, collimated beam with only one target, IPL light energy can be reflected and therefore not as direct. You will more than likely require a higher number of repeat treatments overall with IPL hence the reason we will only work with the high power Fotona lasers. Added to that Laser treatments mean we can treat all skin types whereas IPL has been known to cause injury to people with a darker skin tone.
What can I expect after the treatment?
There is no real downtime with this treatment, most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment. However we would always recommend to our patients that it is important to avoid too strenuous activity for the first 48 – 36 hours (in some cases up to a week). It can take up to 2 weeks to see the full effect, but some clients start to notice improvements after a few days.
