Laser Hair Reduction

Laser energy is used to heat up the pigment in the hair. This causes the hair follicles to heat up too, which stops them producing hair. The hair needs to have enough pigment to be heated up by the laser, which is why the treatment won't work well on thin, pale or grey hair.

Hair grows in cycles and is then shed, and is only susceptible to treatment during its early growth. This could mean you'll need a series of treatment sessions over a period of time. The patch test in your initial consultation will show you how well the laser treatment will work for you, and you'll know then if more than one session would be needed.

Depending on the area treated, sessions are from 6-12 weeks apart.
