The Hair Growth Cycle
In order to understand laser hair removal you need to understand the hair growth cycle.
The hair growth cycle has three distinct stages:
Anagen: active growth phase
Catagen: regressive phase
Telegen: resting phase

It is ONLY during the ANAGEN active growth phase where the laser permanently disables hair growth. Over a course of 6 treatments at the correct weekly intervals, we can target that phase of growth. The cycle for every area is different: Facial: 4 weeks Body: 6 weeks.
The cycle for each hair is not synchronised which is why it is important to have multiple treatments and at the correct time for optimal results.
E.g. Every 4 weeks for facial, every 6 weeks for body.
I.P.L. v Laser Hair Removal
IPL is often mistakenly referred to as a Laser. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. The broad spectrum light passes over the whole treatment area, in comparison to an actual laser where the energy is far more concentrated.Treatment performed using an IPL is not as effective for hair removal. Laser uses just one wavelength to target hair follicles. Therefore Laser energy is far more focused than an IPL. The treatment settings with our Laser machines are more accurate and precise so we can individualise treatments for each client. When IPL is used for hair removal there is also a greater risk of causing damage to the skin, such as changes to skin pigmentation or burning.
Pre & Post Treatment Advice
You will need to remember some basic rules when commencing laser hair removal.

- Shave, shave and shave only – no more waxing, threading, plucking or electrolysis.
- Remember laser will not work if you remove the hair from the root.
- If you have removed the hair from the root you will need to wait 4 weeks before your first laser session.
- Your hair will continue to grow after treatment and shed around three weeks post treatment.
- You can shave in between.
- You will be given an advice card at the consultation which you must follow before and after each session to get the best and safest results.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser removes the hair by a process called selective photothermolysis.
- The light energy from the laser is transferred into thermal energy in the hair follicle.
- The laser targets melanin, the pigmented region in the hair follicle.
- Heat from the laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair resulting in the follicle being destroyed.
- We use a Dynamic Cooling DeviceTM (DCDTM) during the treatment which means skin is further protected and cooled providing clients with comfort.
Are You Suitable For Laser Hair Removal
If you find traditional methods of hair removal difficult or inconvenient or want quick permanent hair removal.The rule is that the hair needs to be darker than the skin. The darker the hair the better. Blonde, grey, white or red hair cannot be treated.Your medical history will be taken at the consult to check you are medically suitable.
What About A Patch Test?
- A patch test is done on a small section of the different body areas you want treated.
- The patch test provides us with the optimal temperature for your skin.
- It checks the sensitivity of the laser to your skin.
- You have to wait a minimum of 1-2 weeks for tanned/darker skin before your first session.
- We are looking for any adverse reactions in this time.
- The patch test is complimentary.
- No self tan/perfumed products or aerosol on the skin prior to the patch test.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent, What Results Should I Expect?
Each treatment by any energy based technology (Laser, IPL, VPL etc) is technically permanent hair ‘reduction’, due to the targeting of follicles only in certain stages of the growth cycle.However our equipment and training delivers incredible results and that’s why the vast majority of our customers can expect to walk away hair free for life after our standard course of just 6 sessions.
Your Medical History
You will need to give us a full medical history at the consult. We only commence treatment if we are confident you are a medically suitable for it. We will refer to a doctor if necessary.

There are certain contraindications to laser which mean you cannot have the treatment. Some of these are:
- Pregnancy
- Roaccutane Users
- Recently had a peel or laser resurfacing.
