Laser Hair Removal
Laser promises a long-term hair reduction solution. It works best on hair growth which is darker, if you have blonde, white or red hairs you need to consider an alternative method of hair removal. Laser is conducted on to the skin where the hairs have been shaven away.
There are several different laser machines across the beauty market. Different lasers are suited for different skin types. The Alexandrite is one of the best for fairer and white skin types. The ND YAG is suitable for all skin types but is also considered to be the gold-standard for Asian and Afro-Caribbean clients.
There has been a recent arrival of Home use laser machines. One of the most popular brands being the laser No-no; although it has been marketed as a completely safe and effective method of hair removal there is still some risks that need to be considered.
Laser hair removal can have a different effect on the skin if you are taking certain forms of medication; within a salon these would be blacklisted. However at home you would be unaware of this. If you suffer from epilepsy we would avoid treatments within our salons. This once again becomes a high risk at home.
The other thing which needs to be queried about home use machines is their efficacy. Our laser hair removal machines which are available in salons can often cost around £100,000. The machines at home can be purchased for around £200 - £400. The laser beam would most definitely be unlikely to penetrate as deep and having read reviews online it just seems to be something that is neither a safe or effective option.
