Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is by the fastest and most efficient way to remove unwanted or excessive hair. Christie explains how convenient she found laser hair removal and how it benefits her in her working life. An investment at her age that will last a lifetime.
However, lasers can not treat all hair colours or be used on darker skin tones which is when electrolysis hair removal is more appropriate.
What is involved in laser hair removal?
Your journey to smooth hair free skin starts with a consultation and test patch to ensure your skin will not have an adverse reaction to the laser light. Next are 6 treatments 4-6 weeks apart. The spacing between treatments matches the cycle of hair growth to ensure the maximum number of hair follicles are treated.During this period our laser will reduce your hair growth by at least 80%.

Electrolysis hair removal
Electrolysis hair removal works on ALL hair colours and can be used on ALL skin types and colours to remove unwanted hair.
However, electrolysis hair removal treatments are time consuming and depending on the treated area can be uncomfortable. This treatment is best suited for unwanted blonde, grey and white hairs that cannot be treated using a laser or hairs located on the body where it is not safe to use a laser.
Fair, grey & white hair removal
Many women encounter hair growth on the top lip as they age. Often the hair colour is very light, grey or white making it impossible to remove with laser treatments. Fortunately for most women the hair growth is limited, sometimes with just individual hairs appearing - in these situations electrolysis hair removal is the perfect treatment.
Step 1: A tiny probe (about the same diameter as the hair) is inserted down into your hair follicle opening already present in the skin.
Step 2: The probe is charged with a tiny amount of electrical current and you will feel either a build up of warmth concentrated in the locality or a sensation similar to a slight sting.
Step 3: The hair is gently released from the follicle with tweezers leaving you hair free. The hair slides out easily without traction.The procedure is repeated on each individual unwanted hair to clear the area as much as possible within a given time frame whilst taking skin reaction into consideration.
