About

Laser Hair Removal

State of the art laser technology for Effective, Safe and Painless hair removal treatment for all skin types. The key advantages over older methods of epilation:

  • Comfort

  • Speed

  • Safety

Painless treatments

Due to the advanced cooling system, hair removal treatment can be performed without causing skin irritation.

Fast treatments 

Equipped with inter changeable hand pieces for each area. Large areas can be treated considerably faster, increasing the efficiency of the hair removal treatment.

Effective treatments

This light travels through the skin until it strikes the hair shafts or the bulb (root) where the highest concentration of melanin is located. As the light is absorbed, the bulb and most of the hair shaft are heated, destroying the hair-producing papilla. Additionally heat conversion occurs directly in the darker capillaries that bring blood to the follicle.

At any one time, not all hair follicles are ‘active’, meaning in Anagen phase and only active hair follicles can be affected by the treatment. ‘Inactive’ hair follicles (e.g. Telogen and catagen) can be treated as they become ‘active’ over time. A series of treatments is required to remove most visible hair.

Treating all skin types

The system delivers a long wavelength, enabling the light to penetrate deeper into the skin while better avoiding the melanin pigment in the skin's epidermis. The long wavelength penetrates into the hair follicle causing only minimal epidermal injury, which is designed to allow for use on all skin types.
