Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic clinics. The laser beams light into the hair follicles where the dark pigment of the hair absorbs the light, destroying the hair and resulting in the hair falling out.
In our clinic we are pleased to offer the most effective and least painful laser hair removal system on the market. The Soprano Ice utilises Super Hair Removal (SHR) technology for smoother results and for minimal discomfort. It can be used on all skin types (including tanned skin, which is a first for laser hair removal), on any body part, all year round, for safe, permanent removal for anyone, at any time.
Laser hair removal can be used to treat unwanted dark hair on any part of the body. Light colored hair is not able to be treated with laser.
Treatments can range from 10-60 minutes in length, depending on the area being treated.
Typically 6-8 treatments are required to achieve 70-90% hair reduction. These treatments are spaced anywhere from 4-6 weeks apart. Often maintenance treatments are required after completing the initial treatment sessions. These are typically done 2-3 times a year, more often for hormonal areas such as the upper lip and chin.
May require touch up treatments once every couple of years due to body and hormone changes.
There is minimal discomfort with laser hair removal. Often described as a warm rubber band snapping against the skin. Following treatment there can be some residual redness, this clears within a few hours.
There may be slight redness or tenderness of area treated, this will dissipate after a half hour to a couple hours. It is imperative to wear sun protection post treatment to avoid sunburn.
Minimal results can be seen after the first treatment however, all treatments recommended will need to be completed to obtain optimal results.
