This hair removal treatment employs a laser to inhibit the growth of body hair. Treatment involves application of an intensely focused, long pulse light to unwanted hair. The light pulse targets melanin in the hair, not the skin. The light pulse travels to the hair root where it damages the hair follicle and prevents future growth.
Laser hair removal provides seventy to ninety percent permanent reduction of unwanted hair. Skin type, skin colour and hormones are factors which may influence hair regrowth.
Laser hair removal is the cheapest, fastest, most effective method for permanent hair reduction and requires little or no maintenance after the initial course of treatment. Alternate methods of hair removal are temporary requiring regular monthly or six weekly treatments.
Several treatments may be required to disable all hair follicles because hairs enter the growth cycle at different times.
MySkin Laser Clinics assist clients eliminate unwanted hair from almost every part of the body. We advise you not to be shy. Clients can request a list of treatment areas from our trained staff by email or telephone.
MySkin Laser Clinics lasers include a Dynamic Cooling Device providing a constant burst of cold air before, during and after the laser pulse. The cooling effect renders hair removal treatment virtually painless. Clients report the sensation similar to that of an elastic band snapping against the skin. Due to individual differences in pain thresholds, a topical anaesthetic can be applied if preferred for your comfort.
MySkin Laser Clinics do not treat clients who may be trying to conceive, are pregnant or breastfeeding. Laser hair removal has not been proven to be damaging to pregnant or lactating mothers or their children, however we recommend delaying treatment during these periods.
Treatments are rarely affected by medication. Exceptions include medications which affect the skin's sensitivity to light or alter skin pigmentation. For example, Roaccutane which should be ceased six months prior to treatment and Retin-A which should be ceased at least two to four weeks prior to treatment.
Individual skin tones may require different lasers. MySkin Laser Clinics employ a range of medical grade lasers to treat our clients' individual skin tones.
To ensure maximum safety and effectiveness our clinicians require a thorough understanding of your concerns, expectations, skin type, hair colour and medical history.
