Laser Hair Removal
For smoother, softer skin
Tired of repeating the cycle of plucking, shaving and waxing?
These daily rituals are not only inconvenient but can damage your skin in the process. Enter Laser Hair Removal. After just one session you’ll see a reduction of hair by up to 30%.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Lasers are able to safely, quickly and effectively treat hairs on the face and body to prevent them from growing back. It pulses a gentle beam of light that selectively targets the hair follicle.
At The Skin Boutique, we use the Cynosure Elite+ which is both FDA & TGA approved and offers two separate wavelengths to treat both light and dark skin types.
How does Laser Hair Removal Work?
A laser beam is a single wavelength of light that is able to carry energy. When pulsed onto the skin, the pigment in the hair absorbs this energy and converts it to heat.
Similar to how a dark shirt absorbs sunlight, the pigment in the hair also absorbs this light and is selectively heated to disable the follicle from producing new hairs.
Only hairs in the anagen phase respond to the laser, which is why with subsequent treatments, the area will have fewer and fewer hairs.
Thicker, darker hair respond best to treatment as these hairs absorb the most energy. Lighter and fine hairs may still absorb some energy, but white hairs do not respond at all to treatment.
Clients with darker skin require more treatments than fairer individuals, and hormonal areas do require ongoing maintenance treatments.
Your Specialist will review your individual expectations at your initial consultation.
