When waxing, shaving or tweezing of unwanted hairs becomes a stressful routine, then it's the right time to consider Laser hair Removal.
Laser Hair removal is a fast and effective process of removing unwanted hairs on any part of your body, leaving your skin smooth and supple.
The technique used in the procedure at our hair clinic is called the selective photo-thermolysis, and it targets the melanin contained in the hair bulb via a laser beam. The laser beam heats up the bulb of the hair to destroy it, killing the bulb but leaving the skin smooth and supple with only a temporary redness, resulting from exposure toheat.
Ideal Time Period for Procedure
Due to the nature of the procedure, we advise that the procedure be carried out during the winter months.
Removal of the hairs on the skin leaves your epidermis unprotected and susceptible to UV rays, particularly in areas of your body that is constantly exposed. Performing the procedure in the summer presents some potent risk to the patient, one we would not like to take.
What to Know About the Procedure
Pre-procedure examination: When you come in for the procedure, our specialist aesthetic doctor would conduct a pre-procedure examination, 24hrs before the actual procedure. The essence is to get you ready, identify key factors (including allergies etc.), and generally prep you up for the procedure.
During Procedure: All necessary precautions will be in place, moles and tattoos protected etc. and just so you know, the laser does not burn the skin, only the bulb of hair. The average run time for each procedure, varies according to the body part being treated.
After the Procedure: Protective ointment is applied over the particular area to relieve skin irritation and redness.
- The procedure is carried out in sessions, spaced over a 6 – 8 weeks period.
- You may require up to 10 sessions depending on the part of the body being treated before you start to observe noticeable change.
- We offer clinical anaesthesia for each procedure to numb any pain you might feel.
