Laser Hair Removal
Fed up with the daily bind of shaving? Had enough of repetitive waxing treatments? Then perhaps it’s time to consider a longer lasting method of dealing with unwanted hair.
Laser hair removal appeals to many women and men too who are looking for a permanent solution to hair removal because it has been medically proven to work. It’s fast, efficient and predictable. That’s why it is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the UK and the USA today.
Popular areas for female patients include the underarms, legs and bikini area. Facial areas can also be treated (e.g. top lip, cheeks, eyebrows) as can the arms.
For men, the most popular areas treated are the back, shoulders, chest and arms, although facial hair and other body areas can also be treated.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal:
- Fast: each pulse of laser is a fraction of a second
- Efficient: laser treats an area of many hairs at once (electrolysis is a hair at a time)
- Precise: selectively target unwanted hairs even on small facial areas
- Permanent: once the follicle is destroyed, hair cannot regrow
- Predictable: 90% of patients have permanent hair loss
How It Works
Before treatment, the laser equipment will be adjusted according to your very individual requirements, taking into account the colour of hair and skin, as well as the thickness and location of hair in the area being treated.
Both the laser hair removal therapist and patient are required to wear protective eyewear due to the intensity of light blast.
The laser hair removal machine blasts a beam of light onto the skin. This targets the pigment in the hair follicles, heating and damaging them so that they cannot regrow.
Quinn Clinics have a choice of two systems, enabling our practitioners to choose the most appropriate for each individual patient.
Our Bristol Laser Hair Removal clinic now has a choice of TWO advanced technology systems for permanent hair reduction.
SYNERON CANDELA ELŌS PLUS WITH MOTIF
The new Syneron Candela elōs Plus with Motif is advanced technology with a unique combination of benefits, making it a great choice for tackling unwanted hair.
This system offers pain-free laser hair removal with a larger treatment area, making it ideal for areas such as legs, chests, shoulders or backs.
This is a new addition to the clinic for summer 2014.
LUMENIS LIGHTSHEER DESIRE
The Lumenis Lightsheer DESIRE machine is a “gold standard laser” for outstanding results in permanent hair reduction.
This new machine is an upgrade from our previous Lightsheer, using the latest technology. The Lumenis brand is a well-established favourite with our patients and many have returned for treatment in additional areas.
Is this IPL?
No, we have chosen laser technology, as research shows that laser is better than IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) for hair removal. Read more in our advantages of laser vs IPL technology section.
