In the Spotlight
How it works
Essentially, the laser releases energy into the skin, and the pigment (or melanin) in the hair follicle absorbs this energy, and the hair follicle is destroyed.
Any part of the body, on men and women.
What to expect
It is very important that you shave the area to be treated roughly 12 hours prior to your laser hair removal session. Make sure you avoid wax/depilatory cream, fake tan and getting sunburnt up to two weeks before your session.
This is important, as the treatment uses a cosmetic laser that shoots a concentrated beam of light directly at the pigment in your hair follicles and will also sizzle any pigment on your skin, including tanning products.
Downtime is minimal if any and some redness may occur, however most redness will subside within 24 hours.
The procedure is very quick and painless. A pre-treatment consultation process is recommended, where your laser technician will explain the procedure, confirm your suitability, and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Smooth, hair-free skin.
A reduction in ingrown hairs, and shaving rashes.
A course of treatments will be needed to get your desired result. The technician will discuss this in your consultation.
