Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair reduction is becoming more and more mainstream with women as well as men; it is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in practices all over the world. No one really wants to have more discomfort, ingrown hair and irritated or infected skin, which is the usual consequence of shaving, plucking, waxing … and it has to be repeated over and over again.
Laser hair removal is a long- lasting, comfortable solution! How does Laser Hair Reduction work?
Laser hair reduction is a much faster and more efficient procedure than most other possible treatments. Laser light targets hair follicles and eliminates or significantly impedes hair from growing back. The deep penetration of Nd:YAG laser ensures it reaches even the deepest follicles, while its low absorption in all skin types makes sure the surrounding tissue is preserved. This guarantees safe, fast and effective hair removal, even in the darkest skin types, without the epidermal damage other light-based treatments inherently cause.
The procedure is quick and largely pain-free and you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately.

What outcome should you expect?
Because hair grows in cycles and not all of body hair is in the same stages at a time, it takes a few treatments for a significant reduction. The outcome also depends on hair quality, number of hair follicles, different metabolism and hormonal level of each individual, but it usually takes only four to six treatments to remove the majority of hair.
Constant exposure to the sun can damage the skin and cause common skin imperfections such as redness, freckles, age spots and uneven skin texture.
IPL is a light based therapy that targets sun damage,hyper-pigmentation (brown sun spots), dilated red capillaries. It is an anti ageing rejuvenating treatment. IPL light targets the melanin ( brown pigment in the skin ) and the heat lifts the colour out. The pigment will rise up to the surface and can crust off eventually improving the condition of the skin.
IPL targets the blood in the capillaries (blood vessels), heating up the blood which will eventually be removed by the immune system leading to successful removal of the visible vessels. This may happen immediately or require multiple treatments depending on capillary depth, treatment area and skin condition.
