Our laser treatments are available for both hair removal and skin rejuvenation. With our medical grade laser you will see great long lasting results in fewer treatments.
With our state of the art “Adena” IPL we are able to target both dark and light hair, something which is not available in most other clinics!
For photo rejuvenation the IPL treatment differs from laser treatment as it offers a non-ablative solution to improving the texture, quality, colour and health of your skin. IPL is not a laser but a broad wavelength light that is pulsed onto the skin and can treat multiple conditions simultaneously, including broken veins and capillaries, redness of the skin, age spots, mottled pigmentation, benign brown pigment and freckles. Treatment can take place over the entire body. Most popular areas are face, neck, décolletage, hands and shoulders.
All technicians who perform IPL treatments have completed the Luminex accredited class 1V laser safety course and are highly trained to give you the best results.
HOW DOES THE ADENA REMOVE BLONDE, RED, GREY AND WHITE HAIR?
The wave lengths used in standard IPL targets the melanin in the hair. Since grey, red, white and blonde hair has no melanin, IPL doesn’t work. However, the Adena has a separate head for this type of hair that targets the hemoglobin or blood source of the hair instead of the melanin. Since waxing causes a microscopic injury to the skin or blood in the follicle, we wax the area to be treated beforehand for a more successful treatment.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE A TREATMENT?
Firstly visit one of our stores for a consultation on your needs. Allowing the hair to grow for a couple of days before treatment will give the best results. If you have been waxing, you will need to wait 4-6 weeks until the hair has regrown. Do not sunbake, sunbed, spray tan or fake tan for 2 weeks prior to your treatment as tanning of any sort can lead to superficial burning. Avoid perfumes or any alcohol based treatments on the area to be treated and inform your therapist if you are on any form of acne medication or topical vitamin A. Shave the area the day before your treatment. If it’s your first time it’s best to leave a small area so we can see the hair growth and colour. For those with blonde/grey/red hair, we need to wax you first. So come in only when your hair is long enough for us to wax.
WHAT DO I DO AFTER A TREATMENT?
No sun tanning or sun beds for 2 weeks after your treatment. Sun tanning can result in irregular pigmentation occurring in the treated areas. Apply topical after Gel on the areas to reduce any irritation. We highly recommend a product we sell in store to stop infection. Always apply good quality SPF 30+ daily to avoid irregular pigmentation issues.
