How does laser hair removal work
Laser hair removal works by passing a light beam through the unwanted hair area which is then absorbed by melanin (colour within the hair). This generates heat, which damages the blood supply feeding the hair and disabling the hair forming cells. If the hair follicle does not contain any pigment, the laser will not target it. In other words, if hair is grey, white, blonde or red, laser hair removal will be ineffective.
Does it hurt
We use the Cutera excel HR system which is considered the gold standard in laser technology and is FDA approved. The laser contains a triple sapphire cooling tip to cool before, during and after each pulse to ensure high comfort for all laser hair removal treatments. It is the least painful laser on the market.

Most laser hair removal patients are advised to undergo at 6 treatment sessions, spaced apart every 6-8 weeks to target follicles during the growing stage.
