Long term hair reduction
What is Laser & IPL Hair Removal?
The Laser and Intense Pulse Light System can effectively and permanently remove unwanted or excess hair. This system removes hair faster, more comfortably and more reliably than other methods including electrolysis.
How does it work?
The Laser & IPL beams target the pigment located in hair follicles (pigment gives hair it’s colour) and destroys or significantly reduces hairs ability to grow.
How many treatments are required?
Because all hairs are at different phases of growth at any one time, more than one treatment may be required to remove all hairs. Most patients find approximately six sessions are necessary, however, this may vary depending on the area being treated and how fine or course the hair is (the courser the hair, the easier it is to remove).
Does treatment hurt?
Cooling devices on the tip of the device cool the skin on contact, protecting the skin while directing the laser energy to the hair follicle. Patients will also be offered an anaesthetic (numbing) cream to increase comfort. Recovery is rapid and patients may return to normal activity straight after treatment.
