Say good bye to waxing strips, hair removal creams, the mess, the pain and never ending hair removal sessions
Say hello to “Diode Laser Hair Removal” technology.
How does the laser work?
The diode laser is commonly used laser for hair removal and it works by producing a concentrated light beam which will target the hair follicle and destroy it. Diode gently targets only the hair follicles without affecting the surrounding skin, so no adverse reactions
Advantages of laser hair removal
- Fast and convenient method.
- Safe in dark skin types.
- Semi-permanent in nature(80-90% of hair growth is reduced).
- Suitable for smaller areas including ears, nipples as well as the bikini area where other hair removing modalities may irritate the skin or is difficult to treat.
- No problems like ingrown hair or irritated skin.
Will there be visible hair reduction post- treatment?
Gradually, yes. It will seem as though hair is growing back faster initially because the destroyed hair is pushed out by the skin and is then shed after a week or two.
What happens during a session of Laser Hair Reduction?
It is a very simple procedure. First, the skin and hair to be treated will be analysed after which the area to be treated is shaved. And contrary to popular belief, this will not make your hair grow any thicker than it already is. The diode laser is then placed on the target area and a focused beam of light is shot. The diode laser has an inbuilt cooling tip and is designed for maximum patient comfort. The probe is then moved across the skin until all areas of concern are treated.
Will a single session suffice?
The follicles on our skin grow independent of one another. The laser will only slow down the growing capacity of follicles that are already in the growth phase. As some follicles may enter the growth cycle only after the treatment, repetitive sessions are required. Age, ethnicity, diet, medication as well as the hormonal and metabolism levels of each individual apart from the number of follicles in treated area and the quality of hair follicles also play a part in determining the number of sessions required.
Is there any downtime?
Not really, you can go back to your normal activities immediately post procedure. However, we will insist you follow the simple after care regime of sunscreen with or without hair reduction creams based on your hair growth to ensure maximum results.
