We recommend you arrive at least 10 minutes beforehand, to give yourself time to unwind. Also, if you are a new client, we’ll ask you to fill in a consultation form, which takes about 5-10 minutes.
Your appointment time will be reduced. Your treatment will still end on time so that the next client is not inconvenienced or kept waiting.
We ask that you give us at least 24 hours’ notice to change or cancel an appointment. Cancellations after this time may incur a charge. An appointment for a free loyalty rewards treatment that is cancelled at short notice may result in forfeiture of the treatment.
Laser hair removal is a procedure which removes hair from the body utilizing a long pulse laser. 1Laser heat disables follicles from producing hair. Hair grows in cycles. Since various hairs will enter their growth cycle at different times, about 6-8 treatments at intervals of 8-12 weeks are necessary to disable most of the follicles in a given area.
Both men and women seek laser hair removal to remove unwanted hair. Hair removal is commonly done on underarm, pubic area, legs, abdomen, lip, chin, back, buttocks, thighs, face, neck, chest, arms, and toes. Laser technology works by targeting dark pigment. Therefore, it works best on pale skin and dark coarse hair. The lighter the skin and the darker and more coarse the hair, the better are the results. The best candidates are patients treating areas with dark coarse dense hair growth.
Most patients need at least 8-10 effective treatments spaced for face 4 weeks apart and body 4-6 weeks apart initially. Because hair grows in cycles, several sessions are necessary in order to affect all hair on any given area. Due to length of hair growth cycles, treatments are usually needed once every 4-6 weeks apart. Hair cycle length varies depending on body part. Face usually requires more frequent treatments (about 4 weeks apart) whereas other body areas need less frequent treatment (closer to 6 weeks apart).
As you progress with treatments your therapist will discuss with you and increase the length of the treatment space gradually from 6 weeks to 3 months to maybe a year, moving you to a maintenance programme.
Laser hair removal lasers have been in use since 1997. They disable hair permanently as long as the right type of hair is treated with an appropriate type of laser at effective settings. However, it is called a “reduction” because, no matter what some clinics may claim, hair removal lasers cannot and do not remove 100% of the hair in an area. With proper treatments, laser can remove the majority of the coarse hair on a body area, but they cannot remove finer hair
In one pulse, laser removes all the hair on a patch of skin the size of a 20c coin. Generally, laser hair removal is not much more painful than waxing, though the sensation is different. With each pulse, the feeling resembles a rubber band snapping against the skin for a quick second. Pain is only felt while laser is hitting the skin and doesn’t last.
Both systems are circulating on the same energies— heat and light.Utilizing the energy of intense light, the heat emitted by such targets the hair follicle that will cause damage, hence reducing hair growth. As seen from the photo below, laser treatment uses a stronger level in treatments, as well as higher temperature to achieve optimum results. IPL treatment, on the other hand, utilizes a slightly lower temperature compared to the laser treatment.
