LASER HAIR REMOVAL & LASER BEAUTY TREATMENTS
beauty treatment, skin care, facials
What does the treatment involve?
The Permanent Beauty hair removal system is a technologically advanced
treatment that destroys hair at the root. All types of unwanted hair on
virtually all areas of the body can be treated quickly and painlessly
through this non-invasive light therapy (photo epilation).
How does it work?
The handpiece emits light safely into the skin through a hand held
device. The light travels into the skin and is absorbed by the pigment
in the hair and it is then converted into heat (photo thermolysis)
which cauterises the hair follicle. The subsequent damage results in a
significant reduction in the hair's ability to grow, which in turn over
a course of treatments, results in progressive hair reduction.
What happens during the treatment?
The therapist will then work systematically over the area being
treated, emitting flashes of light. The entire area will usually be
covered at each treatment. A mild sting and slight heat may be felt and
you may notice the smell of singeing hair. A soothing gel will then be
applied and it is recommended that this be used regularly at home,
together with SPF30+ sunblock. It is best to remove the hair a few days
before the treatment by either shaving or trimming.
Who is suitable for the treatment?
Most adult men and women are suitable. There is no upper age limit, so
long as the hair is not white. All areas of the body are suitable,
except around the eye. Most skin colours are suitable but please check
with the clinic if you have an Africa/Caribbean skin type.
How many treatments are required?
Many factors influence hair growth - age, ethnicity, weight,
metabolism, medication, hormones and genes all play a part. Following
your in depth free consultation, the Permanent Beauty therapist will
advise you of the realistic expectation. An average of 6-12 treatments
is usually required.
What should I expect to happen?
The hair may appear to continue to grow after the treatment, but is in
fact shedding. This can take from 1-4 weeks and the hair will then fall
out and re-grow usually more slowly than normal, softer, finer, lighter
and slightly patchy. This is because the hairs that were actively
growing when you received your treatment have been damaged or
destroyed. After each treatment progressively more unwanted hairs are
destroyed, with the hair free areas becoming larger and more apparent.
How does IPL work on the hair?
The melanin in the hair (which gives hair its colour) absorbs the
light, which is momentarily converted into heat. This heat is
transferred to the growth cells at the root of the hair, permanently
disabling them. Most colours of unwanted hair can be removed from all
parts of the body, except very sensitive areas such as the inside of
the nose and ear.
Does IPL hurt?
Not really, although the treatment sensation will vary from client to
client. Most of our clients say that it feels like the flicking of an
elastic band on their skin. Any discomfort is momentary and there is no
