During laser hair removal procedures, a laser device emits light energy that
travels through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and
hair shaft. Pigments are the substances that give skin and hair its colour (also
known as melanin). The energy absorbed damages the pigmented hair follicle,
which impairs its ability to grow. Hair follicles that are in the anagen, or active
growth phase, have more pigment and absorb more energy, and typically
respond the best to treatments. For this reason, it typically takes multiple
treatments to achieve the best results – its important to “catch” your hair in this
active growth phase when you are receiving treatments.
There are many devices for laser hair removal however, we use the best in laser
technology, the Cynosure Elite+. The Elite+ uses two proven laser wavelengths that provide treatments for patients of all skin types.
Laser hair removal can remove hair from faces, backs, chests, arms, underarms,

Most people feel only a slight momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure followed by a slight heating to the skin. This typically goes away after the treatment but cooling methods can be used immediately after treatment to help with this sensation.
Typically, you can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment.
You may experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by
some minor redness and/or swelling immediately following the treatment. This
usually lasts 2-24 hours. Post treatment care will be discussed during your
We recommend that you avoid heat treatments including hot baths, saunas, and steam rooms for 24-48 hours. You MUST avoid the sun and sun beds for 30 days before and after treatments. Factor 50+ must be worn to reduce this risk.
Fake tanning products can be used 2 weeks either side of a treatment but must
be completely removed before the next session.
Firstly you must book an appointment with the clinic for a consultation; these
are usually free of charge. The therapist will go through a few medical
questionnaires with you to see if you are eligible for the treatment. Following
this, she will explain to you in full detail what the treatment entails and answer any questions for you. A patch test on the area will then be carried out to check for any skin sensitivity to light treatments. This will also give you a chance to experience the sensation of the light on your skin so that you know what to expect when coming in for your first treatment
