Frequently Asked Questions

 

How Does Laser Work for Hair Removal?

 

The laser emits a beam of light which passes through the top layers of the skin and targets and destroys the hair follicle. The laser light is absorbed by the pigment in the shaft of the hair and follicle. The energy from the laser heats and permanently destroys the stem holding the hair which then falls out. New hair cells are also prevented from forming due to the destruction of blood supply.

Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

 

Compared to other forms of hair removal like waxing or threading most people would say laser hair removal is not painful. We use the treatment area counteracting the warmth. BrrEase cold air skin cooling device, this machine offers high client comfort during hair removal sessions. Don't just take our word for it, book in for a complementary consultation and patch test to try for yourself!

 

Should I go to a clinic for laser hair removal or buy a device online? 

 

Lasers used in clinics are far more powerful and effective. These devices are medical grade and operated by experienced technicians. The expertise, results and tailored plans that you receive in a clinic are therefore unmatched. 

 

Does Laser Hair Removal work for dark skin?

Laser devices traditionally used in hair removal were incredibly sensitive to both skin colour and melanin, which is why so many people with darker skin tones did not experience great results from Laser Hair Removal. Today things have changed! The latest medical grade laser hair machines are extremely advanced and sophisticated, with the Nd: YAG laser specifically designed to distinguish the subtle changes in skin tone, which means it can remove hair no matter what type of skin you might have. This means a safe, effective reduction in hair for you!
