Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal treatments are one of the most sought after services within the health and beauty sector. Unwanted hair growth can be a nuisance for many men and women.
The most effective way to achieve a permanent reduction in hair growth is with laser or IPL treatments. We use our Fotona SP Dynamis laser for hair reduction. This world-class Nd:YAG laser allows us to treat deep-rooted hairs on all skin types.
Treatments are safe and fast. Some salons/ clinics will claim to offer 'laser hair removal', when in fact they are using a sub-standard IPL system. Not all lasers are the same, not all IPLs are the same.
And a laser and IPL are most definitely not the same. Lasers have key differences to IPL, mainly in what type of light they produce and how high-powered they are. We are happy to offer our patients both treatments- laser and IPL hair removal- with the best quality machines available today.

If you would like hair removal treatment, book a complimentary consultation with us today. We will assess your skin and hair type to make the appropriate recommendations for what treatments are best suited to you.
Both Laser and IPL hair reduction treatments work on a principal that the light device is pulsed into the skin and primarily absorbed into the pigment of the hair. The hair then heats up to destroy the hair follicle and reduce hair growth. All of this happens while the surrounding skin is protected and unaffected.
Depending on your skin type and hair growth, you may need anywhere from 4-8 sessions 4-8 weeks apart. This will be discussed with you during your initial consultation. If you don't have enough sessions your hair growth may start to increase. Maintenance treatments may also be necessary to prolong the treatment's effectiveness.
The sensation of the treatment is often compared to the feeling of a rubber band flicking the skin. This sensation only lasts for a fraction of a second and most clients report only minimal discomfort. If you have concerns, or are receiving treatment on a sensitive area, our experienced therapists will be happy to discuss some pain relieving options. Immediately following the treatment there will be temporary redness to the skin, this will disappear after a short time with most people returning to normal activities immediately. For pricing and eligibility for this treatment, book your complimentary consultation.
During your consultation your technician will assess your skin type and hair to determine which method of hair removal will be most effective for you, and explain all costs involved.
