How does the diode system remove hair?
This laser targets the pigment located in the hair follicle and shaft. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and this energy is converted to heat which results in damage to the hair follicle. This damage causes delayed re-growth of hair and, in most cases, permanent destruction of many of the hair follicles. Unlike electrolysis, which disables one hair follicle at a time, the laser reaches and treats hundreds of follicles at a time.
Do I need to grow the hair out before my consultation / treatment?
No, in fact we ask that you do shave the area you want treated. Shave the areas 2-3 days prior to the treatment. We are actually targeting the anatomical structures below the skin. Surface hair interferes with this process.

Are all laser hair removal machines the same?
No, our lasers have the highest power in the market in order to eliminate the hair growth cells more effectively and with faster treatments, and unlike other types of lasers our lasers can treat all skin types, even dark skin. The other main difference between lasers is the way the device cools the skin during treatment, which affects comfort levels and the level of protection for the skin. Our lasers are one of the few lasers that uses a fully integrated ultra-cold sapphire tip that is constantly in contact with the skin during the whole treatment, meaning the treatment is nearly painless and skin is highly protected . Most other lasers just have a separate tip that only cools the skin after the laser shot.
Do I need a consultation?
Definitely! Everyone’s skin and hair is different that’s why it’s important to assess your hair during a consultation, and don't worry it’s free! During your consultation, it’s also an opportunity for you to discuss any concerns, medications you are taking along with what to expect during the treatment and how to take care of your skin after.
How does laser hair removal work?
The laser transmits energy in a pure red light that is absorbed by the melanin of the hair. It is converted into heat in the root of the hair, which eliminates the cells responsible for hair growth. The pure red coloured light is the most effective to destroy the hair cells, which is why diode laser is so effective treatment for hair removal.

How do I prepare for treatment?
Avoid tanning, spray tans or gradual tanning creams.
Shave the area the night before and avoid using deodorants and other skin products on the area on the day of your treatment.
Will the medication/antibiotics I’m taking effect the treatment?
It is important to let your therapist know what medications you are currently taking. The use of Roaccutane and other types of medication that treat eczema, dermatitis and a number of other conditions may prevent treatment on that day. Please seek advice from your doctor first.
Can you have laser whilst you are pregnant or breastfeeding?
There is no conclusive evidence to determine whether laser is safe or unsafe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Please seek advise from your doctor first.
