Laser Hair Removal

Would you like to be hair free for good?

Would you like to see the same person each visit and have a tailored treatment plan just for you? Then come and see me at Essential Beauty for the latest technology using a Diode Laser.

Laser hair removal is safe, comfortable, and can be used to stop hair growth anywhere on the body. Laser works by targeting the hair root or blood supply using a concentrated beam of light. The light is absorbed by pigment, which damages the follicle and renders it incapable of growing hair. This results in long-term reduction of hair growth in the treated area. For some people hair never returns, although everyone is different, so results can vary.  

What does it feel like?

 Some clients find laser hair removal uncomfortable, but not painful. The laser at Essential Beauty is among the latest and best in the industry. Our laser has the ability to put cooling liquid in the hand piece through a mini radiator, in turn taking the heat from the laser to reduce discomfort.  

You may find following your treatment that your skin is a little red, like a mild sunburn, but this will pass quickly. We suggest you don’t wear tight clothing against the treated area and that you refrain from doing excessive exercise for 24 hours to prevent aggravating your skin. 

If you have been sunburnt, exposed to the sun without adequate protection, or have used a sun bed or tanning lotion you should postpone any laser treatment for a minimum of three weeks.

How many treatments will I need?

Laser hair removal targets hair in the Anagen phase which is when the hair is still attached to the root and follicle. It is typical for most clients to require between 6 and 8 treatments, planned every

4–6 weeks to ensure each hair has been treated in its correct phase.

Essential Beauty has a clinically proven Diode Laser (a proper ‘pew pew’ laser) – that has one function, to remove unwanted hair and give you silky smooth skin.
