Laser hair removal For Men and Woman
Leicester Laser Hair Removal Overview
Lasers and Intense Pulsed light have become a more common and established treatment for unwanted hair, since their introduction in the late 1990s, more and more men and women at some time or another have considered this as an option for a more permanent management of unwanted hair.
No more razors, waxing, or creams! No more stubble, shaving rashes or irritation! Let’s not even mention the eye wateringly painful trips to the salon for waxing every month.
Excess hair can be embarrassing and inconvenient for both women and men, effecting your self-confidence and affecting your daily activities like going to public places such as gyms or swimming pools where the skin is usually on show. It could even stop you from being able to wear your favourite clothes or trying to hide that shadow under make-up.
The problem keeps on coming back time after time after time.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Bursts of laser light at specific wavelengths penetrate along the hair below the skin surface to the root of the hair.
The Laser beam targets the dark pigment (melanin) in the hair shaft
the hair then absorbs the light energy and converts it to heat, this in turn
heats up the follicle and disables the hair growth mechanism.
Thermal damage occurs to key structures: bulb, bulge, vascular supply depending on the wavelength being used.
Hair regrowth is impeded or stopped
Laser only target hair in the anagen (growth) phase 90% of the hair is in the anagen stage at any one time hence several treatments will be required.
Understanding the Hair Growth Cycle?
To understand Laser Hair Removal, you need an understanding of the Hair Growth Cycle and how that effects what we do and the reuslts that you will get.
The Hair growth cycle has three distinct growth phases.
These are known as the:
• Anagen: Active growth phase
• Catagen: Regressive phase
• Telogen: Resting phase
• The cycle for Facial Hair renews every 4 weeks
• The cycle for Body Hair renews every 6+ weeks
Of course the cycles for each hair are not synchronised, hence we recommend having multiple treatments scheduled at the correct time for optimal results.
Which skin colours can be treated?
We are able to treat all skin types including dark skin, using our Premium mixed technology Laser Hair Removal systems.
The Fitzpatrick table puts skin types into 6 different classifications.
The Fitzpatrick table measures 2 components, Genetic disposition and reaction to sun exposure.
The table tells us which Laser equipment and parameters to use for particular skin type.
