LASER HAIR REMOVAL

About Laser hair removal
Latest cutting edge, super fast, comfortable, long term hair reduction. Hair removal can be a time-consuming job for both men and women. It can also be a source of embarrassment for some people. Laser hair removal offers a long-lasting solution to this problem. The sophisticated sapphire glass cooling system and scanning treatment techniques make treatment much more comfortable than older devices. The laser sensation is often compared to the sting of an elastic band on the skin. However, with our new machine, this short, sharp pain is virtually eliminated. It will feel warm, but thanks to the integrated Contact Cooling Tip, comfort and protection are maximised. The area may look a little pink after treatment but this is temporary, and you can return to your normal activities straight away.

5 Facts about Laser Hair Removal
1. Six to eight treatments are needed for each area. This is because there are three phases in your hair cycle: growth, regression, and rest, and it is only during the growth stage that laser treatment will be effective.
2. The laser disrupts hair regrowth so that it will be unable to grow back once removed (unless there are underlying hormonal issues).
4. Works on all skin tones, and on the majority of hair colours, although white, ginger and grey hairs cannot be treated. It is important that the skin is free from tan.
5. No waxing, tweezing or depilatory creams for three weeks prior to treatment. It is advisable to shave the area the day before your appointment so that the procedure is comfortable, but it is possible to see where the hair is located.
Types of Hair Removal
Underarm Hair Removal
Shaving the underarms can often result in an unattractive, uncomfortable rash. It is an area where hair needs to be removed daily, which is inconvenient. Laser hair removal can take this menial task away from the client, leaving smooth underarms. It is one quickest areas to treat thanks to its small area.
Bikini Hair Removal
An unsightly bikini line is even more evident in the summer, and shaving can leave it bumpy and stubbly, and waxing means growing it out for a while. Laser hair removal can be completed within twenty minutes over six to eight sessions so that you can wear your swimwear with confidence.
Arm and Leg Hair Removal
Shaving the arms and legs is more time consuming than other areas, and needs repeating regularly. Waxing requires a few weeks of hair growth, which many people do not want to wait for. Laser hair removal is the obvious solution, with four to eight sessions of one hour required.
Laser Hair Removal for Men
A smooth chest and back are only achievable through laser hair removal. Shaving leaves stubble, and waxing is painful. Four to eight sessions are required, and last an hour for each area. The results are not completely long-lasting, but do last longer and look better than other options.

 TATTOO REMOVAL

About Tattoo removal

This technology uses a number of different powerful wavelengths to target and break down the pigment within tattoos, which allows the body to absorb them. The end result is clearer skin that’s free from any reminder of your past ink. Most clients need about 6-10 tattoo removal treatments, depending on the size and pigment within the tattoo however in some cases we have reduced this to as little as 4 treatments. These sessions need to be spaced 6-8 weeks apart, thus allowing the body time to absorb the broken-down pigment.

5 Facts About Tattoo Removal

You only need to look to celebrities for examples of people removing their tattoos. From Angelina Jolie and Britney Spears to 50 Cent and Mark Wahlberg, more celebrities than ever are opting to erase their tattoos from the past.
3. The procedure is surprisingly fast and painless.
Think laser tattoo removal will take a long time? Think again – most procedures only take a few minutes to administer, depending on the size of the tattoo and the body part where it’s located..
4. Know why most people remove their tattoos?
More people remove their tattoos because they’re unhappy with the outcome. Other clients have reported being unhappy with the location of the tattoo, feeling regret over the tattoo, or wanting to erase evidence of an impulsive decision.
