WHY SWITCH TO LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
For both men and women, when it comes to appearances, we are our own worst critic. We notice our visible and unwanted body hair more than anyone else –and it can really kick at our confidence. Laser hair removal treatment is very effective on even dark and thick hair. Since it works gently and precisely, small areas such as the upper lip, in between the eyebrows, and the nose can enduringly benefit from the laser treatment leaving you looking and feeling great. The word ‘laser’ may leave some of us feeling a little intimidated. However, as a qualified aesthetic nurse with thorough professional training, I promise to put you at ease.

WHY SWITCH TO LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
In an average of six sessions you can expect to live your life without the hassle of spending time and money on a six-weekly wax, or constantly staying longer in the shower to shave, or having your skin irritated by another tube of hair removal cream. Unlike the pain experienced time and again on the waxing table, or by the nick of a razor blade, laser hair removal only causes minor discomfort.
ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
This varies dependant on a number of factors including the size of the area you wish to treat. A course of treatments is recommended for the best results.
The soprano platinum has the breakthrough technology of simultaneously combining three wavelengths in a single application to target the hair follicle. The soprano is FDA approved to treat all skin types from the fair to the dark skinned like myself! Skin of colour don’t have to worry of burning or scarring with this amazing technology of the soprano. The Soprano gradual heats up the dermis to a temperature that effectively damaged hair follicles to prevent hair regrowth without damaging surrounding tissues. It’s the ICE(TM) tech cold sapphire tip minimises the risk of burns on the skin surface.
Laser hair removal works by directing a concentrated beam of light at the area that you wish to be treated. This light is then absorbed by the pigment thereby damaging the hair follicle and causing destruction to the root. When the root is destroyed, it can no longer produce hair. Laser hair removal takes place over a number of sessions because hair follicles are active in cycles. Therefore, in the first treatment the follicles with actively growing hair can be destroyed, but the inactive cells will need to be targeted in the next session. This process is repeated until you are happy with your beautifully smooth skin.
At KP Aesthetics, I have the newest and most innovative version of the Soprano laser hair removal series. The Soprano Ice Platinum offers a smooth and painless procedure, unlike its predecessor, Soprano Ice which had a plucking sensation. Of course everybody’s skin responds to heat at different levels, and the Soprano Ice Platinum allows for this with a 1-10 heat setting range. That means during your laser hair removal treatment, we can find a temperature that is right for you. If you find the heat uncomfortable as the temperature increases during your laser hair removal treatment, the applicator has a fast cool mechanism which can be applied to the skin. In addition, before beginning the laser hair removal, I will always apply a cooling (ultrasound) gel to the treatment area. This help to protect the skin.
Patients can see up to a 90% reduction in hair growth. Results vary on an individual basis
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment for people of all ages and skin tone. Unfortunately for people with grey, white, blond, or some lighter ginger hair, laser hair removal does not work. Additionally, if you have extremely sensitive skin or skin conditions which cause breaking of the skin in the area for which you would like laser hair removal, due to the nature of the treatment, you may not be able to have the laser hair removal. You can always get in touch for further details.
Laser hair removal delivered by a trained medical professional is absolutely safe. The laser application is really easily controlled with a hand held applicator which is connected to a foot pedal. Before beginning the laser hair removal, I apply cooling ultrasound gel onto the skin and spread it generously over the treatment area. This protects the skin from the heat produced during the laser hair removal. In addition, the patient and I wear protective goggles and I will cover any reflective surfaces from which the laser could bounce.
Absolutely! Laser hair removal may seem like it is associated more with women, but it is equally popular with men and women. Whether you would like laser hair removal for a small area like the ears and nose, or a larger part such as your back, chest, or buttocks, I am here to make you feel comfortable, safe, and hair free.
Yes, you can shower after laser hair removal. I always suggest that my patients do not have any direct heat applied to their treatment area for 24 hours after laser hair removal because naturally the skin is a little more sensitive to heat after treatment. If you do want to have a shower after your laser hair removal, make sure that you keep the water at a lukewarm or cool temperature
