The GentleLase system is a revolutionary long-pulse high-energy alexandrite laser, which emits a gentle beam of light that passes through the skin to the hair follicle where it is absorbed. The laser energy is transformed into heat, destroying the hair follicle whilst leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.A Dynamic Cooling Device further protects the skin from the laser. Cryogen is sprayed onto the skin, cooling the upper layers to provide increased comfort. The GentleLase selectivity helps to protect the skin, while safely and effectively treating the unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal treatments are extremely safe. Our staff are well-trained in assessing patients and delivering the appropriate treatment tailored to the patients skin type, coarseness and hair colour.
Anaesthesia is not required during this procedure, however a numbing cream may be used for more sensitive areas. Most individuals experience no more than a slight stinging sensation as the laser pulses are applied.
Price is based on the size of the area that is to be treated. Laser hair removal is an affordable option, compared to constantly having to wax and shave.
This will depend on the area being treated, the hair growth cycle, and the density of your hair. You can expect an average of four to six treatments spaced 6 to 12 weeks apart, depending on the location of the unwanted hair.
Small areas may take as little as 15 minutes, while larger areas, such as the back and legs, may require up to an hour or longer.
All areas on the face and body can be treated for hair removal.
