Laser and IPL Hair Removal

We offer a safe, long-term solution to unwanted, excess hair for both men and women. Treatment is suitable for the face and body, is quick and results can be seen after just a few sessions.

TrilogyIce

There is no doubting the evidence proving the benefits in utilising three laser wavelengths in a single hand piece which simultaneously targets different tissue depths as well as anatomical structures within the hair follicle. Using the ‘Power of three’ Trilogyice is the latest advance in laser hair removal technology offered at a highly competitive price. The system combines the proven benefits of three wavelengths, achieving maximum results and versatility when compared to single wavelength. This powerful combination of different penetration and absorption levels of wavelengths, combined with the speed of delivery, ensures that we provide one of the safest and most comprehensive hair removal solutions available. Trilogyice in motion protocol ensures safe, comfortable and effective hair removal on all skin types. Rather than exposing hair follicles the single high energy pulses the Trilogy in motion protocol works by gradually heating the dermis and damaging hair follicles whilst avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue. The Trilogy in motion protocol of moving the applicator over the treatment area quickly enables full coverage whilst the contact cooling system ensures virtually pain free and effective hair removal. Multiple layer wavelengths allow us to treat the widest range of patients and hair types all year round, perform treatments quickly and comfortably whilst achieving the best clinical results.

Lynton LUMINA

To provide the safest and most clinically effective treatments, we use a state of the art Laser and Intense Pulse Light system (IPL) called Lynton Lumina. The Lynton LUMINA enables us to treat over 10 different aesthetic concerns, including hair removal for skin types 1-6. Used by NHS and private hospitals across the UK, the Lumina provides the very best in clinical results, speed of treatment, and client comfort for safe and effective treatments. Our advanced handpieces allow us to customise treatment options for patients with different skin types, tones and concerns. The LUMINA primarily utilises two medical grade IPL wavelenghths to deliver DynamicReflex technology to combat different skin concerns. DynamicReflex Technology was developed by Lynton through many years of PhD research and 25 years of British manufacturing expertise.

Consultation Procedure

Prior to treatment, a consultation is conducted in which a medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment. This is also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have. Before treatment commences you must provide written consent and a small test patch will be carried out.

Light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair

The applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.

Most people are suitable for treatment. Best results are often achieved with clients who have fair skin and dark hair. Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Fair hair, however, contains less melanin and is harder to treat. We recommend a consultation with one of our advanced therapists to ascertain if the treatment will be successful for you. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment. We suggest electrolysis for white/grey hair for smaller areas

Treatment sensation varies but is often described as “a flick of an elastic band”. Typically, no anaesthesia is required, and most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable.
The hair follicles are damaged by heat, but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.
Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Unwanted reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the area treated, until a satisfactory result is seen. The required number of treatments varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are needed for optimum results.

Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.
