How Laser Hair Removal Works

The laser works by directing concentrated light into the hair follicle inhibiting the hair’s ability to grow without disrupting or damaging the skin’s surface. Our lasers use a wide beam which allows the removal of multiple hair follicles at the same time.

Our experienced Therapists will take your skin and hair type into account before creating a personalised treatment plan. Areas we treat include back, shoulders, neck, chest, stomach, arms and more.

The Candela GentleLASE Pro is designed to work for clients with dark hair and lighter skin, while the GentleYAG Pro works best on a darker skin tone.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will all hair be removed? or can it be just reduced?

    I can take a few sessions to see complete hair reduction. If you’re not ready to reduce all hair talk to your therapist about limiting the treatment plan.

  • Can I get blonde hair removed?

    Unfortunately, blonde, grey/white and some types of red hair do not respond to treatment. Laser hair removal cannot treat these colours as they do not produce any pigment.

  • How often do I need to get Laser Hair Removal?
    Depending on your hair and skin type and the area being treated, you will usually require treatments at 4-6 week intervals. Each part of the body has a different hair growing cycle, so the hair loss will vary depending on what phase your follicles are in at the time of treatment. However at least 10 treatments are required for a permanent result.
  • I have dark skin, can I get Laser Hair Removal?
    Because we use only the most advanced medical grade Candela Lasers for our laser hair removal treatments, we can treat medium to darker skin tones. We offer two different laser machines, the GentleLase Pro and GentleYag to achieve the safest, most effective results. Our laser technicians use the Fitzpatrick Classification Scale to determine your skin type at consultation, allowing for the most suitable machine to be selected for your hair removal treatment. GentleLase Pro is best for skin types with a fair to medium skin tone. GentleYag is best for skin types with a medium to darker skin tone. Your laser technician will assess your skin at each consultation and treat you using the most appropriate settings for your skin type and recent results. Your settings will change throughout the course of your laser hair removal treatments to ensure optimal results.
  • Can I have Laser Hair Removal over the top of tattoos?

    No, unfortunately we cannot put our laser technology over the top of tattoos.
