Is excess hair worrying you or damaging your confidence?
Imagine silky smooth hair free skin.
No more waxing, daily plucking or shaving.
Laser hair removal turns this dream into reality.
Whether it's fine downy hair or thick dark hair, if you have hair in places you would rather not, the chances are you are probably waxing, plucking, threading, bleaching, epilating, tweezing, using depilatory creams or shaving on a regular basis! The downside with these temporary methods is that they require a continual daily, weekly or monthly management routine. Over a long period of time this can prove to be costly, time consuming, and damaging to the hair and surrounding skin.

Laser hair removal offers a long term solution to permanently reduce unwanted hair in men and women. Here at The Skin Spa™ we can achieve up to an 85-90% reduction in most clients. Laser hair removal treatments will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and free from painful in-growing hairs.

Our machine has 2 different lasers allowing us to treat different skin tones, our laser experts will ensure you get the treatment that is right for you, with amazing results.

Laser Hair Removal for Asian and Black Skin
At The Skin Spa™ we specialise in laser hair removal for Asian, Black and suntanned skins using the long pulsed Nd:Yag laser. The Nd:Yag is the only FDA approved laser for hair removal in Black skin and is considered the safest, most effective laser available today.
How does the Nd:Yag laser work?
The long pulsed Nd:Yag laser works on a 1064nm, which is the longest wavelength of all the lasers commonly used for hair removal, by using a longer wavelength this decreases the melanin absorption in the epidermis, significantly reducing the risk of epidermal damage which is often associated with Intense Pulsed Light systems (IPL).

Laser Hair Removal for PCOS
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, often shortened to PCOS is a condition that affects between 10-15% of women of reproductive age. PCOS occurs when minute harmless cysts form on the edge of the ovaries due to a hormone imbalance. The underlying hormone imbalance in PCOS can cause other symptoms including excessive hair growth, as the hormones stimulate the production of new hair follicles at a much faster rate than those not affected by PCOS. Excessive hair growth or hirsutism is a common side effect of PCOS. There is a range of hair removal treatments available including waxing, bleaching, shaving, electrolysis, plucking, depilatory creams and laser treatments. Laser hair removal is the preferred method for many women as the laser treatment does not interfere with any medication or surgery. Laser hair removal treatments are effective for women with PCOS but, because unwanted hair growth in women is hormonally driven, until hormonal imbalances are resolved, increased hair growth may continue. However, laser treatment will significantly reduce the amount of hair present and slow down re-growth. For example, women shaving on a daily basis may find that they only require laser treatment every few weeks with no shaving in between.

The Skin Spa™ would like to help and support women with PCOS by offering a 20% discount on pre-paid laser hair removal courses. To qualify you are required to provide a medical certificate, please bring this to your consultation.

FAQs
How does it work?
Light is absorbed by the melanin. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively disables the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cell. The laser is placed on the skin and the light pulse 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.
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. Unfortunately grey/white hair has no melanin therefore it cannot be treated with the laser, you may wish to opt for waxing as an alternative.
How does the treatment feel?
Treatment sensation varies with each individual, most of our clients experience a mild warming sensation on the skin.
What will I see after treatment?
During your treatment the hairs remain in the follicles and the active hair follicles are disabled by the heat. These hairs are shed after 1 to 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to be growing 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?
Everyone is different and it is just not possible to be accurate. Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are required. The exact number will vary depending on where the hair is, what has been done to the hair in the past and, of course, your individual response. The number of treatments varies, although typically 6 treatments or more are needed for optimum results. For hormonal conditions, such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) you will require more than six treatments, as you will be managing the hair growth.
How long does treatment take?
Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes and up to 1 hour, depending upon the size of area being treated.
