Laser Hair Removal
Boast a silky smooth and hair-free body.
Laser hair removal is one the most popular treatments, worldwide, to achieve permanent hair reduction. By using the correct laser specifically designed to target and destroy the root (follicle) of the hair, safe and effective results are possible. The goal is for the laser light to penetrate to the depth of the hair follicle to achieve long-term results.
This is ideal for men and women who suffer from ingrown hairs on the face and body. By treating the “root” cause of the problem, those uncomfortable raised bumps that often leave dark marks on the skin will be a thing of the past.
Hair Removal Treatments
The Alexandrite laser is a recommended laser hair reduction treatment for fair and light brown skin types.
The Nd: Yag long pulse laser can be safely used on all skin types. It is highly effective on dark or tanned skin with darker hair, but is of limited use on light or fine hair.
The diode laser works well on coarse, dark hair and is a good choice for underarm or bikini hair.
Men and women who are tired of shaving, waxing or plucking their hair. Certain ladies may also experience excessive hair growth due to polycystic ovarian syndrome and hirsutism.
Yes. By using the correct laser, namely Alexandrite or ND:Yag laser, the “root” of the problem will be targeted, preventing further ingrown hairs that can lead to skin darkening and scarring.
As the laser is designed to target melanin, hair must be dark to achieve best results. Light and grey hair will not respond to laser, but can be treated with electrolysis.
Book a complimentary consultation and patch test with an experienced laser operator. After assessing your skin and hair, the laser operator will do a patch test with the correct laser, to determine the most effective setting to target your hair and spare your surrounding skin. Enhance is able to treat all skin types thanks to Alexandrite and ND:Yag lasers.
A course of four to eight treatments is needed to achieve permanent hair reduction. Your hair grows in three cycles and a laser is only able to target hair in one cycle, namely the anagen phase. With each treatment, you hair growth will become less.
Most importantly, sun exposure should be avoided. As with any laser treatment, the skin is more sensitive to light. Your skin will feel warm and sensitive, thanks to the heat produced by the laser. Apply soothing cream or gel regularly throughout the day. Avoid using any body scrubs/ exfoliators for two weeks post procedure.
