Laser Hair Removal

Long gone are the days of discomfort, ingrown hair, skin irritation and even skin infection, resulting in the usual consequence of endless shaving, plucking and waxing.
Laser hair removal is a long-lasting, comfortable solution! Please book a 30 minutes laser consultation before any laser treatments. Our laser consultations allow you to meet your laser technician and enable her to:

  • Analyse your skin
  • Perform a safe patch test
  • Go through the ins and outs of laser treatment.
  • Answer any of your questions regarding the treatment.

The consultation fee of $25 will get redeemed off your first laser treatment!

How does Laser Hair Reduction work?

When treating hair, the energy emitted by the high power diode laser is used to prevent the regrowth of the hair. To do this, the light has to penetrate several millimetres into the skin to reach the root of the hair. When it meets the melanin in the hair (brown colour), the absorbed light gets converted into heat, damaging the cells responsible for hair regrowth. This ensures a drastic reduction in hair in the treated area. The skin is cooled down with a  powerful skin-cooling element immediately before the light pulse to make the treatment comfortable. The procedure is quick and essentially pain-free, and you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately.

There are many benefits to laser hair removal and we’ve outlined some of our top ones:

  • Freedom To Wear What You Like, When You Like
  • Hairfree, Carefree Holidays
  • Increase Confidence
  • No Shaving, Means More Free Time

Frequently asked questions

Does it hurt?

Most people describe the treatment as uncomfortable more than painful. The Diode laser has a cooling tip, making the treatment more comfortable. The level of discomfort varies between individuals and depends on the area being treated.

How many treatments will I need?

The hair alternates between periods of growth (anagen) and no growth (telogen). The transition between the two periods is called catagen. During a hair removal session, all the hairs are targeted, with no way of knowing in which phase of growth they are, hence in a certain area, only a specific percentage of hair (anagen phase) reacts to the laser treatment. Therefore, a series of laser sessions with an interval of four to six weeks is always necessary. How many sessions are needed varies on a case by case basis and depends upon hair and skin type, hormone levels and genetic predisposition. Commonly, six to ten sessions per area are needed to reach hair reduction of up to 90%. You should start to see results after your second or third treatment. However,  this is dependent on age, hair type, hormone levels, any existing medical conditions and other factors.

Can all hair types be treated?

Hair from very dark to dark blond can be treated effectively, while white or grey hair will not respond to the treatment. The darker the hair, the better the absorption and, therefore, the better the results.

How much does it cost?

The price varies based on the area you are looking to treat. For a full price list, please contact S23 for the most accurate price.

What should I do before my treatment?
  • Shave the area before your treatment.
  • Stay out of the sun and avoid tanning and fake tanning products before your treatment. We can’t perform laser on any tanned skin.
  • Do not pluck or wax during your laser hair removal treatments as this will disrupt the hair growth cycle, and you may not receive the best results from your treatment.
What happens after my treatment?

There’s no downtime after your treatment, although your skin may be pink or even red in the treated area. This is quite normal. Redness may last from a few minutes up to 24 hours, and it may feel a little like mild sunburn or windburn. You can apply a cold compress if required. Apply SPF30 sunscreen daily.

Post treatment advice

  • Mild sunburn-like sensation may result. Cooling the skin can be helpful with a cool compress, cold gel pack or Aloe Vera gel.
  • Treated areas may be temperature sensitive. Hot or humid weather conditions can aggravate the skin. Cool showers or baths will offer relief.
  • Don’t expose skin to the sun, sunbeds or self-tanning treatments, and protect treated skin with clothing and sunblock SPF 30+, 2 weeks pre and post Laser Hair Removal treatment.
  • Don’t pick or scratch the treated area.
  • Keep the treated area clean and dry; avoid rough sports and tight clothing.
  • Avoid aggressive scrubbing and use of exfoliants, peels, brushes and loofah sponges until the treated skin has returned to its pre-treatment condition.
  • Avoid makeup, perfumed products and bleaching cream (on treated area); shaving (on treated area), swimming, hot tubs and excessive exercise until the pinkness of the skin subsides.
  • Take the day off from the gym, pool, spa for at least 24/48 hours to avoid heat or excessive sweating.
