Laser Hair Removal Course
Traditional hair removal methods can be tedious, painful and expensive over time and can only provide a temporary solution. Laser hair reduction is a clinically proven treatment for the reduction of unwanted facial and body hair for both women and men.
Laser hair removal offers a long-term solution to unwanted or excess hair for both men and women and is suitable for most areas of the face and body.
How it works.
Light is absorbed by the melanin (the pigment in the hair follicle). The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cell. The laser is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which target many follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of the skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is covered.
A course of laser treatments is usually required at 4 - 8 weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle. Treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and free from painful in-growing hairs.
AM I SUITABLE FOR TREATMENT?
Most people are suitable for treatment. Best results are seen with people who have lighter skin and darker hair. Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Fair hair however contains less melanin so is harder to treat. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment.
HOW DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL?
Treatment sensation varies but is often described as a 'flick of an elastic band'. No anaesthetic is required and most clients describe the discomforts as moderate and tolerable.
WHAT WILL I SEE AFTER TREATMENT?
The hair follicles are damaged by the heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 to 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to grow as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and raised but this usually subsides within a few hours. Adverse reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?
Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatments are conducted every 4 to 8 weeks depending on the area being treated, until a good result is seen. The number of treatments varies, although typically 6 treatments or more are needed for optimum results.
HOW LONG DOES TREATMENT TAKE?
Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes and up to 3 hours (for full body), depending upon the size of area being treated.

I really like the skin analysis - in the past I have been told I have different skin types depending on the salon I have been to whereas you can actually see the results for themselves at Trueskin. Plus the products you offer are fantastic and not readily available on the high street
