Laser hair removal
If you suffer from unwanted hair or are fed up with messy creams, painful waxing or endless shaving we can help. At Stradbrook Skin our fast, effective and virtually pain-free treatment can reduce unwanted hair permanently, leaving you with wonderfully smooth skin.
The Palomar system that we use is more comfortable than other pulsed light systems used for hair reduction due to the continued cooling methods utilized whilst the light pulses are in contact with your skin. This minimises discomfort significantly. A large area is treated with just a single pulse rendering hundreds of hair follicles immediately useless. This makes the treatment extremely fast. You can return to work or the family straight after your treatment.
It works by emitting pulses of light into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles, and converted to heat, which then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair.
Your Therapist will move the handpiece over your skin. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, an audible tone, and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the handpiece is being pulsed.
For the best results, you will need a course of treatments which are usually 6-8 weeks apart. If you have any special occasions planned, it is a good idea to start well in advance. Treatments need to be performed on UNTANNED skin and at six to eight weekly intervals to reduce the hair growth by 75%-85%.
