Laser Hair Removal
Removing hair through utilising laser light pulses in a virtually painless and effective way, preventing regrowth by destroying hair follicles.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal has come a long way over the last two decades and we are proud to say that we have some of the most revolutionary laser hair removal equipment at SCINmed for you to benefit from. Light laser technology specifically targets treated areas with precision, killing the protein in the follicle of the hair to minimise future regrowth or potentially completely eliminate hairs after a couple of treatments.
Soprano Ice Platinum®
The Soprano Ice laser is one of the safest and most advanced innovations to offer hair reduction treatments for both men and woman. Its revolutionary innovation is one of a kind and through the application of customised settings we can offer virtually pain-free hair removal treatments to people of all skin types. It targets the root of the hair, resulting in long-lasting removal and the gradual reduction of regrowth. The Soprano also works on tanned skin, allowing you to have treatments that won’t strip away the tan.
Laser Cool-Glide ND Yag®
Known as the best hair removal system on the market, the Cutera Cool-Glide is one of the safest and most efficient hair removal treatment techniques you can choose. It is perfect for all skin types, safe on dark skins and delivers on the Cutera global reputation of creating innovations that are safe, versatile, affordable and effective. The carefully designed copper cooling creates the perfect cooling environment for optimal comfort and protection, making the Laser Cool-Glide suited for suntanned bodies and all skin types.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Regrowing hair can sometimes curl back and grow sideways under the skin, causing a bump, inflammation and potential infection of the hair follicle. This is generally caused by anything that causes the hair to break-off (like shaving) and often ingrown hairs could also cause rashes and itchy skin.
Hair grows thicker, appears darker and starts to grow in some strange places as we age. They sometimes start to appear on the top lip, cheeks, neck and chin, places where hair is unwanted.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The pain is minimal in comparison to other procedures like waxing. Your personal pain tolerance will determine whether you find it painful, but most patients will compare the feeling to being snapped by a rubber band.
Unlike other hair removal techniques, laser hair removal works in a targeted way to directly target and kill the hair follicle. It will not influence your tan and is suited for people with all skin types.
This depends on your own personal hair growth. Men usually have thicker and faster growing bodily hair, but we recommend a treatment every six weeks and a total of 8 – 12treatments, dependant on the size of the treated area and the amount of hair.
For the most optimal effects the hair follicle should be intact. Therefore, any plucking, bleaching or waxing of the hair should be avoided in the 6 weeks leading up to your treatment.
Most clients see permanent hair reduction after 8-12 sessions and needs a maintenance session once a year. Hormones can however stimulate hair growth again that’s why it’s important to have a consultation before starting your course of treatments.
Hot water should be avoided for 6 hours to limit skin irritation while we recommend you stop exfoliation for 1day.
It’s suited for all skin types, but we’ll give you a free consultation where an experienced aesthetic therapist will assess your skin and hair, do a patch test and put together a customised package to address your individual needs and budget.
Hormones stimulate hair growth we don’t advise doing laser hair removal if you suffer from hormone imbalance conditions like Polycystic ovaries.
