Hair removal by laser is an aesthetic medical procedure that delivers excellent results. You will find the latest generation of lasers that will treat all skin types from light to dark. High speed permanent hair reduction with maximum comfort and minimal pain. Great news for both men and women. In the past, remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis or chemical depilatories. Some are painful. Some are messy, and all are only temporary. Laser hair removal offers a permanent solution to unwanted hair saving you both time and money in the long run. Unlike many salons that use ‘IPL’ which delivers poor results and also requires more sessions, we only use the latest technology medical grade lasers, a more effective solution.
The gold standard LUMENIS High Speed LightSheer DESIRE uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair and with greater speed and comfort than other methods.
The High Speed LightSheer DESIRE is a laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second,allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up.As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. And with the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives.
At The Boutique Spa, The LightSheer High Speed handpiece uses breakthrough vacuum assisted technology in combination with diode laser light to allow rapid treatment. ChillTip technology provides contact cooling for increased comfort: by continuously cooling the skin, pain and discomfort are significantly reduced. Our system with it’s unique vacuum mechanism gently draws skin into the handpiece, skin is stretched thin and target is pulled closer to the energy source as well as also minimising pain! For some people there is a sensation of mild prickling but for most the experience is completely pain-free. PLEASE NOTE-a patch test 24 hours prior to your treatment is needed.
Avoid any other hair removal methods such as waxing, threading or hair removal creams for 6 weeks before the treatment.Avoidsun exposurewhich makes laser hairremoval less effective and cause complications. Also fake tan. Shave the area to be treated a day or two before your treatment
After the laser treatment avoid sun and heat stimulation such as hot baths or showers, saunas, and steam. Avoid cardiovascular exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation. A Light Mineral Make-Up can be applied directly after treatment and an SPF 30 must be applied to any treated areas exposed to UV light everyday.
Also, hairs must not be tweezed, waxed or threaded in-between sessions, however shaving is allowed if necessary.

Laser hair removalrequires multipletreatments.Thisisbecause the laser works best when hairs are in an early growth stage (referred to as anagen), and all the hairs are not in this phase at the same time. At any one time, not all follicles will be in the anagen phase, so a course of treatment is needed to ensure that all follicles are permanently affected and will not produce any more hair. Every skin is different, but generally we would recommend to have around 6 to 10 treatments to get the optimum benefit every 4-12 weeks (the time between treatments increases during the course).
