What is Laser Hair Removal?

The cutting-edge technology of the SMARTDiode represents the pinnacle in effective, fast and comfortable laser hair removal for ALL skin types.

Selective thermolysis is when specifically-selected wavelengths of laser light are pulsed into the skin and absorbed by the darker pigment (melanin) in the hair shaft.

This light energy is converted into heat, which is transferred into the hair follicle, damaging the follicle and inhibiting future hair growth.

 

The biological process of hair-growth cycles determines that a minimum of 6x treatments are required. Different human factors and clinical indications can require further treatments.

The average duration for laser hair removal, using the Smart Diode, is 8x sessions, spaced four weeks apart.

For temporary / non permanent hair removal solutions, I offer facial and body waxing.

Laser Vs IPL

The key difference between laser and IPL is the type of light. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a broadband-pulsed light source, whereas laser is a monochromatic, coherent light source. 

 

IPL technology is technically, not a laser treatment. It uses a broad spectrum of light with many wavelengths, which leads to unfocused energy around the hair and skin area. As a result, theres lots of energy wasted and a less-selective absorption in the follicle, resulting in less effective destruction of the hair.

 

Using broadband light also increases the potential for side effects, such as burns or pigmentation, particularly if integrated cooling is not used. IPL's are typically only suitable for lighter skin types (1 to 3 on the Fitzpatrick scale) for the most part.

Typically, IPL technology will require more regular and long-term treatments for hair reduction. A diode laser will work more effectively with less patient discomfort, while treating more skin and hair types than the IPL.

Unlike IPL, our SMARTDiode Laser machine is pain free, permanent and works safely and effectively on ALL skin types and hair types (apart from white and grey hair as this contains no melanin).

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?

No, it is a comfortable, pain-free experience for patients.

How many treatments are required?

​For most people (unless there is a hormone imbalance) 6 to 10 treatments is sufficient to permanently remove all hairs in that area. For facial hair, the number of sessions is likely to be more, with an average of 8-14 sessions. After the first treatment most people will get a significant reduction in hair density.

Can I treat all skin types?

Yes, the Smart Diode has been certified to treat all skin types on the fitzpatrick scale 1-6.

​Can I treat white hair?

No, as the laser process relies on a pigment to absorb light energy and convert it into heat energy, white hair has no colour pigment. If only a few in one area, electrolysis will work for you.

What is the process of getting booked in?

Before we undertake laser hair removal treatment, we always invite you to an initial consultation free of charge. The purpose of the consultation is to ask you a few questions about your health and lifestyle so that we can make sure that laser hair removal is suitable. A thorough consultation is performed for all our clients, this includes history of previous treatments, current medication, allergies, and any pigmentary problems.

We then undertake a patch test on a small area of skin in order to make sure that your skin doesn’t have any adverse effects to our laser technology. If the patch test is successful, we can then book you in for your laser hair removal treatment at a date and time of your suiting 48 hours later. Please make sure to shave prior to your patch test and the treated are 48 before your appointment.

What’s the difference between Hollywood, bikini, and Brazilian laser hair removal?
  • Hollywood – this is everything off, everywhere, both front and back including bottom beard but not buttocks.

  • Brazilian – same as a Hollywood, except for a strip on the pubis.

  • Traditional Bikini – this removes hair up to your bikini line, so upper and inner thighs included.

  • Skimpy Bikini – further in then a traditional, as well as the hair between the cheeks and the bottom area

Can I use a sunbed after laser hair removal?

Have your last sunbed session 7-10 days before your first laser session. Your skin may not be able to recover as easily from the treatment as you are causing extra trauma to the skin which has to heal. If using sunbeds is a regular part of your life you may find it hard being told that you should avoid them for a while.

How long you sit on the side-lines is different for everyone. It depends where you have been treated and your skin type, tone and hair. Make sure you look after your skin post-laser; it will heal quicker. Also use a good quality SPF. Have a good skin routine to keep your skin healthy and supple. This will help you get back on the sunbeds faster.

What are the side effects of laser hair removal?

The most common side effects of laser hair removal are:

  • Skin irritation.

  • Temporary discomfort

  • Redness

  • Swelling

  • Pigment changes (laser hair removal might darken or lighten the affected skin, usually temporarily)

 

If you are concerned about any of these potential side effects please speak to your medical practitioner. That is why we always perform a patch test at least 24 hours before starting any treatment.
