Laser hair removal

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a convenient, non-invasive method for permanently reducing or removing unwanted facial or body hair.

It leaves the skin looking smoother and silkier than waxing, electrolysis or razors and is a gentle technique that can treat larger areas effectively with minimal discomfort and with no downtime.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses light to target the pigment in individual hairs.

The light travels down the shaft of the hair & into the hair follicle. The heat from the laser light destroys the hair follicle, & a hair can no longer grow from it.

Hair follows a unique growth cycle that involves resting, shedding & growing periods.

Recently removed hair that is in a resting phase will not be visible to the technician or laser, so a person may need to wait until it regrows before removing it. For most people, laser hair removal requires several treatments over the course periods.


It’s quick. It’s less painful than other hair removal methods. It’s precise. It can remove hair from any part of the body with the exception of the eyelashes. It prevents ingrown hairs.

It saves you from having to endure regrowth. It’s a long-term solution.

Laser removal leaves your skin softer than before. Reduced body odour. Increase your confidence.
