Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is utilising technology to deliberately remove hair from the body. As hair generally grows all over the body, some hairs are hardly noticeable, and there are areas where hair grows more quickly and more prominently. People often have hair in unwanted places, which is too excessive for them. Using laser hair removal is the best possible solution for the reduction of hair. Our treatment works by targeting hair follicles; its energy damages the area then goes on to destroy the follicles. This then stops the follicle from producing further hair in the future. The laser creates an intense beam of light, which is then absorbed by the follicles; however, the surrounding tissues remain unaffected. This process is called selective photothermolysis (‘photo’ means light and ‘thermolysis’ means to destroy with heat), it targets the hair and not the skin, so that there is no damage caused to the skin at all. It is important to understand that laser hair removal is not electrolysis. Electrolysis works by directing an electric current into each individual hair follicle, which is painful and time-consuming. Lasers, on the other hand, can target a large number of hairs in one go, in a much less painful manner.
