Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal results in permanent reduction of unwanted face and body hair. Both men and women who regularly wax or shave will benefit immensely from this procedure. All areas of the face and body can be treated.

Laser hair reduction works by thermally damaging hair follicles so that they are no longer able to grow hair. The laser light is absorbed into the hair shaft and rapidly heats and damages both the follicle and the vessel that provides the follicle with oxygen and nutrients.

At Highness Clinics, we understand that our patients are looking for the very best and so we use the Candela GentleMax Pro which is the Gold-Standard laser device for permanent hair reduction. This dual wavelength laser (755nm Alexandrite, and 1064nm Nd:YAG) can safely and effectively treat clients with lighter skin types all the way through to dark skin types. For light colored hairs or very fine hairs we offer Spectra Nd: Yag Laser as a safe and effective treatment option.


Procedure

To obtain a permanent hair reduction of 90% or greater most people require between 4 – 8 treatments. This is because at any given time everyone has a mix of actively growing, transitioning, and resting hairs. Only actively growing hairs can be destroyed during a treatment. Follicles belonging to transitional and resting hairs will be unaffected and continue to produce hair. Subsequent treatments are therefore scheduled to be performed when these transitioning or resting hairs will be active (usually 4-6 weeks apart for most body areas). For optimum results it is important that the treatment schedule be adhered to.

Treatments are performed only on clean, dry and closely shaved skin. It is also extremely important to avoid any kind of tanning prior to and in-between treatments. Laser hair removal is extremely fast with large areas treated in a matter of minutes and has only minimal discomfort with the procedure.
