Laser Hair Removal Facts?
Laser hair removal is the most effective treatment to remove unwanted hair. Therapie Clinic uses only the most advanced and precise technology available, using medical-grade lasers as opposed to IPL, which is technically not laser at all and delivers a less effective treatment. Medical-grade lasers mean superior results, quicker treatment times and most importantly of all patient safety.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The medical-grade laser emits wavelengths of light which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin). If the surrounding skin is relatively light compared to the colour of the hair, then the entire energy of the laser will be concentrated in the hair shaft, effectively destroying it without affecting the skin or follicle. This is why laser hair removal works best on light skin and dark coarse hair, which has the most pigment.
What about fair hair?
Red heads and blondes can also avail of laser hair removal at Therapie Clinic with the revolutionary MediLase system. This treatment uses pure ultrasound to remove all hair colours permanently and is ideal for removing hair on sensitive or pigmented areas such as eyebrows, ears, nose, nipple and upper lip.
Laser Hair Removal Treatment
At Therapie Clinic, the first step is a free consultation and patch test to ensure you are compatible to laser. A minimum of six treatments is generally recommended depending on the area to be treated but their results and client testimonials speak for themselves. Most clients book in for one area but invariably upgrade and go back for more, effectively throwing away the razor!
Can I continue to wax in between treatments?
No! No waxing, threading or tweezing as this will disturb the normal hair growth pattern. Bleaching is also out of the question, as this will remove the pigment from the hair leaving nothing for the laser to be attracted to. Only shaving is recommended.
