What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a long-lasting (though not permanent) form of hair removal using lasers to target and destroy hair follicles, so that hairs do not grow there anymore. It works by sending a laser directly to the root of your hair. When targeted at the correct stage of growth, the light converts to heat, destroying the active hair follicles and preventing further growth from that follicle or area.
Laser hair removal is suitable for men and women with all skin tones. Popular target areas include facial hair, leg hair, bikini area, underarm hair, back hair and chest hair.

Laser hair removal is long lasting though not permanent. After your first laser hair removal treatment, you will begin to notice shedding of hair, regrowth in the area is reduced and new hairs come out finer and thinner to be treated at the next session. After 5-6 sessions you will not have any hair growth in that area.
We apply a topical cream 45 minutes before the procedure. For some people there is a sensation of mild prickling but for others the experience is completely pain-free. (90% of our customers reported a pain free experience)
Small areas will take from 5 min to 20 minutes depending on the area. Your face might take 5-7 minutes whereas for your legs it could take around 15 minutes.
We recommend you start with a course of 6 of 8 sessions to achieve the best result. Some people require more sessions depending on their hair growth
There is no downtime; You can return to normal activities immediately after treatment. You should however avoid direct sunlight for 24 hours.
DO wear a high factor SPF. After treatments, skin becomes more sensitive to UV rays, so always use a high factor sunscreen to protect it from pigmentation and sensitivity.
DO exfoliate the area gently as it encourages the dead roots to fall out after every treatment and will make your skin look better.
