• Safer and long lasting results • Suitable for all skin types• Long term hair reduction• Popular with both women and men • Can be used on a variety of areas of the face and body
The treatment is effective on the back, bikini area, fingers, arms,
thighs, legs, chest, upper lip, chin, neck and shoulders areas.
Before the treatment, the area to be treated will be cleansed and thick
layers of numbing cream will be applied for at least 30 minutes.
The treatment removes hair by vaporizing the hair follicles. The laser pulses are akin to warm pin pricks or a rubber band being lightly snapped against the skin.Treatment duration depends on the size of the area. The upper lip
takes minutes while larger areas like the back or legs may last more than an hour.
Typically between 2 to 6 sessions are usually required to effectively remove hair. Most patients experience less hair regrowth and hair tends to be finer and lighter in colour.
Shaving hair that appears in between treatments is fine but do not remove the hair by waxing, epilating or plucking from the follicle as the
treatment is designed to tackle hair in its growth stage.
Laser Hair Removal is also able to effectively and safely remove dark coloured hair on tanned skin.
Minimise exposure to sun, sunbeds or self tanning as this could make hair removal treatment less effective. Skin preparations such as retinol, glycolic or acne preparations should also be avoided. Certain medications should be avoided as they can make the skin sensitive to the laser. Patients should shave before the first treatment, but not on the same day.
Our laser hair removal treatment costs vary depending on the treatment area, size and the number of treatment sessions required. During consultation, our doctor will discuss in detail with you on the number of treatments and costs, treatment process, expected results and other relevant information.
