Laser Hair Removal

  • Who is it for?
    • We can effectively treat all skin types for a reduction in hair growth as long as the hair color is darker than the skin and the client is over 18 years of age. The treatment is perfect for anybody that requires hair reduction on an unwanted area. Unfortunately blonde, grey and most red hair cannot be treated due to the colour of the hair.

    • We usually suggest 6-8 treatments for hair removal. Treatments are carried out every 4-6 weeks for the face and 6-8 weeks for the body.
    What happens in between treatments?
    • In between each session you will have a fall out phase; this is usually 1-3 weeks after a session. The hair sheds away and you are left with a smooth finish. A couple of weeks later the hair begins to re grow, it becomes softer, finer and is reduced by around 20% of the entire growth each time.
