Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal

Genuine laser hair removal is the most powerful weapon against unwanted hair! Much more effective and permanent than IPL, it also requires less treatment sessions from our Newcastle base.

Technical information

The secret lies in the technology. We use the gold standard Cynosure Elite+ laser. It targets and destroys the hair cells responsible for hair growth without damaging the surrounding skin. The result is smooth, hair-free skin that lasts! The laser uses two different wavelengths 755nm and 1064nm making it safe for all skin types, from light to dark.

Our hair naturally grows in 3 different stages. All our hair is not in the same stage at the same time, so when an area is treated only a percentage of hair follicles will be affected. Therefore, to effectively reduce your unwanted hair, multiple treatments are necessary.

What to expect

The laser treatment area is marked out into a grid using a white pencil on the skin. This ensures full coverage and avoids duplicating treatments. The laser is passed over the skin, whilst an air cooler blows cool air at the same time. This reduces the amount of heat going into the skin and makes treatments much more comfortable.

Treatments can take from just 5-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.We recommend a course of 6 treatments for optimum results. Occasional top up treatments may be required subsequently.

You can expect to see a gradual decrease in the hair thickness and in the amount of hair present. In addition, you may also see a decrease in stubble, rashes and ingrown hairs!
