Japanese technology – Triple Wavelength Diode Laser
Our laser offers an advanced technology which combines 755nm Alexandrite, 808nm Diode and 1064nm YAG wavelengths. This combination is a relatively new, revolutionary innovation in the field of laser treatments. The triple wavelength shows to be the most effective and efficient for hair removal. Clinical research shows that lasers produce the best results in permanent hair reduction in comparison with IPL machines and clients can enjoy better results in less time. Our laser is suitable for treatments on the face and body but more importantly we can treat all skin types.
We cannot treat grey and red hair, moles, tattooed areas, mucus membrane and under 18s.
Average Number of treatments:
Gaps in between treatments:
➢ Those who are insulin dependent – diabetics. Any adverse reaction could be inhibited due to poor wound healing
➢ Pregnancy or breast feeding or those on IVF program. The hormones are actively changed during this time and therefore treatments may not be as affective. Proceed when normal menstrual cycle returns
➢ Wearing a Pacemaker as this could alter the programmed rhythm of the device ➢ Taking specific anti-coagulant drugs
➢ Surgical metal pins in or near the treatment area
➢ Waxing, plucking, threading or depilation treatments – allow 4-6 weeks before commencing the treatment program. Clients should be advised not to use these methods between treatments.
➢ Under 18 years of age (unless registered). Pubescent young people will demonstrate unstable hair growth and therefore the treatments will be ineffective.
Patch test is required with every client even if the skin has been previously treated with laser. The skin can be treated fully in 3-14 days depending on the skin type.
