Who can have laser hair removal?

Our GentleMax Pro can treat all areas of the face and body. Its powerful Alexandrite and Nd-YAG lasers can safely treat ALL skin types including Asian and Afro-caribbean skin. However, darker skin types may require more treatments if we need to reduce the power settings to reduce the risk of hypopigmentation.
 
The GentleMax Pro's dynamic cooling system means the heat from the laser is controlled to a specific area making it safer than other systems and more comfortable.
 
We treat women, men and transgender women in our dedicated professioanl air-conditioned laser room. We can treat all hair colours except white and grey which we remove using electrolysis treatments.
 
The efficiency of any laser is based on the contrast of colour between skin and hair, so the darker your hair and the lighter your skin, the quicker you will see results.

What's involved in your laser course?

Your journey to smooth hair free skin starts with a consultation and test patch to ensure your skin will not have an adverse reaction to the laser light.

Next are 6 laser treatments 4-6 weeks apart. The spacing between treatments matches your cycle of hair growth to ensure the maximum number of hair follicles are treated.

During your course you can shave, but you should not wax or tweeze your hair as these actions remove the roots of hair follicles which are needed for the laser to be effective.

Hair reduction will begin immediately, but will become more noticeable after your third treatment.  At the end of your laser course we can treat any remaining white, grey or very blonde hairs with electrolysis, which is charged separately.

Hair follicles that have been destroyed by the laser light will not regrow, however a few hairs whose growth cycle did not match your treatment sessions may reappear and these are easily treated in a single session.

What to expect after a treatment

After a laser treatment most clients go straight back to work or their social engagements. The treated area will feel warm, look red and be sensitive to touch, but this will resolve in 24 hours and your practitioner will give you a pot of Aloe Vera gel to soothe your skin.

You should use SPF50 sun protection on the treated area and avoid exposing it to strong direct sunlight inbetween treatments. We recommend you, avoid for 48 hours, using swimming pools, spas and saunas or placing on the treated area any skin sensitisers, such as perfume, alcohol, acid based skin care or jewellery that may rub.

What are common side effects?

Common side effects are redness which will resolve in 24 hours and treated hair gradually dropping out over 2-20 days (do not attempt to pull the hair out).

In very rare cases blistering or pin-prick bleeding may occur - should this affect you - please inform us immediately and we will provide assistance to resolve it.

FAQs

Which is better Laser or IPL hair removal?

The essential difference is that IPL uses a broad spectrum of high-intensity light, which is emitted at multiple wavelengths, whereas laser emits a single, focused and precise wavelength that's optimised for maximum follicle absorption. Therefore IPL hurts more and is less effective in an individual session which means you require more IPL treatments to achieve the same result as a laser and have to endure more discomfort.

Which is better laser or electrolysis hair removal?
Electrolysis can remove 100% of all hair follicles of every colour, but it is slow and uncomfortable. The laser is up to 60 times faster in treating large areas, is far more comfortable and is more reliable in ensuring no hair follicles are missed. Due to the time required to treat large areas with electrolysis it generally works out more expensive. So electrolysis is best used for white and grey hairs over small areas, which cannot be treated by the laser.
