What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal involves penetrating the epidermis and target the melanin (pigment) in your hair follicles. This creates heat in the base of the hair follicles and damages their ability to regrow hairs, giving you stable long-term or permanent hair reduction.
With the use of a medical-grade lasers we can achieve permanent hair reduction with minimal long term upkeep.
HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
Laser Hair Removal involves a technique to remove unwanted hair on either the body or the face. This procedure uses concentrated beams of light, better known as laser light in order to prevent the hair follicles from being active.
Laser light is directed into the hair follicle then the pigment within the follicle absorbs the lasers light. This light energy converts into heat which disables the hair follicle.
Following treatment, the hair will not grow back for a long time, and in some cases, it will never return.
The treatment involves the use of a medical-grade triple wavelength long-pulse diode laser (755nm, 808nm and 1064nm), which uses the laser light to penetrate the epidermis and target the melanin (pigment) in your hair follicles.
