How does it work?
Laser Hair Removal works by using a laser light along your skin, targeting your hair follicles. It causes damage to the base of your hair follicle, disabling its ability to produce hair as quickly. After each treatment you will notice a reduction in the amount of hair growing in the specific area, until eventually, after a course of treatments, the hair will stop growing. It is a must-have to achieve the ultimate hairless body. Unwanted hair can be extremely embarrassing and inconvenient, especially on visible areas.

Is laser hair removal painful?
All our hair removal lasers provide you with a virtually painless method of hair reduction leaving you with silky smooth skin. During the initial stages, you will feel a light stinging sensation, which indicates that the laser has been activated. Then a series of impulses are produced and may cause a slight burning sensation and some prickling. Your technician may apply a topical anaesthetic to the body area under treatment, in order to minimize the discomfort. But most people do not need the anaesthetic. Some people have said that the feeling is like that of a rubber band snapping against the skin.
Do laser hair removal procedures cause scarring?
Any laser-based hair removal procedure can cause some scarring. This is included as a risk in the consent forms that need to be signed before laser treatment begins. But the risk of scarring from laser hair removal treatment is rather small. The risk is a function of many factors including:
- The skill, experience, training and knowledge of the laser technician.
- Your body ability to heal.
- The amount of melanin pigment in the skin. Darker skin tones have a greater risk of getting scarred.
The risk of getting scarred from a laser treatment is very small. You can minimize the risk by choosing an experienced laser technician for your laser treatment. You may also get the procedure supervised by an on-site doctor.
