Laser hair removal

Bye bye razor, hello laser!

Our laser hair clinic use medical grade lasers. The Candela GentleLASE Pro offers the most effective laser treatment. These lasers emit a single concentrated light beam which is absorbed and transmitted by the pigment in the hair, converted into thermal energy and effectively ‘disables’ the hair’s ability to grow. They feature a Dynamic Cooling Device (cryogen) that acts on the skin to counteract the heating effect of the laser for your comfort.
Laser treatment is safe and does not harm or alter surrounding tissue or skin. Treatments will be conducted by experienced and trained professionals and over a short series of treatments you will see permanent hair reduction.
 
There are major advantages if you should choose laser hair removal. Unlike ‘follicle by follicle’ hair removal treatments, the laser uses a wide beam which allows the removal of many hair follicles all at once. Unlike electrolysis, which takes months to perform and also was much more prone to human error, hair removal through the use of a laser can achieve dramatic results in as little as a few minutes. These treatments are in general permanent, with an average reduction in hair growth of 70% - 95%.

Questions & Answers
 
How long does laser hair removal take?
You have millions of hair follicles in your body, all of which cycle through different phases. Laser hair removal can only treat a certain percentage of those follicles at a time (those that are in the active phase), so it must be done at varied intervals. Because no two bodies are the same, your treatment plan will be tailored specifically to you, but we typically recommend at least six laser hair removal sessions that take place four to ten weeks apart. 
 
What can I expect from laser hair removal?
After completing the treatment, clients describe the experience as nothing short of a lifestyle change; most can’t believe they ever spent so much time and money bothering with razors, creames or waxing. 
 
How does laser hair removal work?
Our laser hair removal system uses a combination of energy and heat to destroy follicles without harming the skin around them. After a series of sessions, you’ll experience permanent hair reduction. Depending which area(s) you decide to treat, you’ll always be ready to slip into a swimsuit, won’t have to think about razor burn or irritation, and will stop worrying about unsightly ingrown hairs. 
  
How should I prepare for laser hair removal?
With laser hair removal, nobody will know you’re undergoing treatment (unless, of course, you want them to). Laser hair removal sessions can be as short as fifteen minutes, and we just ask that you stay out of the sun, shave the area to be treated; and avoid using lotions, creams or products, for optimum results. 
 
What does laser hair removal feel like?
Most clients describe the sensation as a mild “hot pinch,” similar to the feeling of being snapped with a rubber band. In most cases, the sensation goes away almost immediately.
