LASER HAIR REMOVAL

For Long Lasting Results

Laser Hair Removal at Charlton Village

How does the treatment work?

Light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.

The Intense Pulsed Light is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.

How does the treatment feel?

Treatment sensation varies but is often described as “a flick of an elastic band”. Typically no anaesthesia is required and most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable. Laser is, in general, more tolerable than IPL.

Am I suitable?

Most people are suitable for treatment. For IPL, best results are often achieved with clients who have fair skin and dark hair. Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Fair hair however, contains less melanin and is harder to treat. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment.
However, laser treatment can sometimes be used instead of IPL. We recommend a consultation with your clinician to ascertain if the treatment will be successful for you.

No of Treatments

A course of treatments is usually required at 4 - 8 weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle
