The laser works by directing concentrated light into the hair follicle inhibiting the hair's ability to grow without disrupting or damaging the skin's surface. This inactive hair follicle falls out, leaving your skin silky smooth.

The majority of people are suitable for treatments. Our machines allow us to treat clients with lighter- darker skin types. Laser light is attracted to dark follicles and therefore the darker the hair follicle, the more likely it is to reduce unwanted hair. Treatment will not work on red, white or blonde hair.

We use the medical grade Candela GentleLase PRO and GentleYag PRO which are the most advanced technology to achieve the most advanced results.

Laser Hair Removal is the most effective, long-term hair reduction method. Typically, you may need 8 to 12 sessions to see maximum result.

This can vary depending on your skin type, hair type, hormone levels and response to laser hair treatment. It will take several sessions to permanently remove hair spaced two to four weeks apart depending on the area treated. You should see up to 90 percent reduction in hair growth. For best results, maintenance treatments are recommended twice a year for at least a couple years.

Most clients under take 8-12 treatment. Treatments for areas of body every 4-6 weeks & face every 2-4 weeks.

Before your appointment we ask for you to clean shave the area 24hrs beforehand, to avoid cuts or inflammation. Ensure no fake tan, topical creams/moisturiser, deodorant or perfumes on the skin. Avoid sun exposure, also do not wax or pluck hairs 2 weeks prior to laser treatment.

It is normal to experience redness of the skin and some mild swelling, which typically lasts from one hour to 24 hours. Laser Aid is to be applied daily at home for the next 5 days.

Before your appointment we ask for you to clean shave the area 24hrs beforehand, to avoid cuts or inflammation. Ensure no fake tan, topical creams/moisturiser, deodorant or perfumes on the skin. Avoid sun exposure, also do not wax or pluck hairs 2 weeks prior to laser treatment.

Depending on your hair and skin type and the area being treated, you will usually require treatments 2-4 weeks intervals. Each part of the body has a different hair growing cycle, so the hair loss will vary depending on what phase your follicles are in at the time of treatment.

There is no conclusive evidence to determine whether laser is safe or unsafe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. If you have any concerns about proceeding with Laser Hair Removal please consult your doctor.

Results are very instantaneous. After a few weeks, you will notice re-growth but hairs will be finer, thinner and weaker than before treatment. With every appointment, you will notice a further improvement.

Some medications may have photo sensitizing properties which can increase the risk of an adverse reaction. It is very important you bring a long any medication, antibiotics or supplements you are on to discuss with your technician prior to treatment.
