LASER HAIR REMOVAL
THE LASER WE USE
The Laser we use is called Cynosure Elite - Grade 4 Medical.
The Cynosure Elite has two different wave lengths, it has a 1064nm Nd:Yag which is good for darker skin types, and a 755nm Alexandrite which is good for lighter skin types.
We can treat all skin types with this laser
HOW LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS
Laser hair removal is a safe, virtually painless method of removing unwanted hair.
The laser is attracted to the dark pigment in the hair called melanin. The energy from the laser travels down the base of the hair follicle using melanin as a conductor where it disperses as thermal energy. This damages the base of the hair follicle rendering it unable to produce new hair.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LASER HAIR REMOVAL AND IPL
Laser hair removal is different to the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) as IPL uses less powerful, diffused light waves.
Laser hair removal can be used on any part of the body, including the most common problem areas: face, bikini area, legs and underarms.
Laser hair removal can be used to treat both women and men. Many Salons will advertise their IPL treatment as Laser, so don't be caught out, if your laser is cheap then you are probably having IPL which is far less superior to laser and your results will be limited.
