Laser Hair Removal

Are you looking to remove unwanted body hair permanently? As specialists in laser hair removal, Prescription Skin Care’s experienced team can provide you with safe, effective laser hair removal that will not harm delicate skin. Our uncomplicated, time-saving and discreet service offers you a long-term alternative to other ineffective and temporary treatments.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe, reliable and elegant long-term hair removal solution. Our process harnesses laser energy to target the pigment within hair, disrupting the selected hair’s growth cycle and inhibiting further growth. Our powerful treatment effectively removes hair without penetrating skin or interfering with other parts of the body. The skin is left smooth, hair-free and completely unharmed.

Each professionally administered treatment is customised to suit your unique complexion. The procedure is effective on a range of hair colours. However, clients with white or light blonde hair should be aware that results may be reduced for their hair type due to a lack of pigment within these shades.

Permanent laser hair removal

Prescription Skin Care’s experienced team can permanently remove unwanted hair from any region of the body. To achieve the best possible results, we recommend a schedule of 8-10 treatments.

Due to the unique nature of hair growth rates and cycles, 100% removal can be challenging to accomplish. However, you can expect to see up to 80% permanent hair loss in targeted areas, with some patients seeing up to 95% permanent hair removal after receiving our treatments.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by focusing a beam of light on hair that a client has requested be removed. This light targets the pigment within the hair, and the follicle is heated as the pigment absorbs these rays. The selected hair is thus removed and future growth subdued.

During your appointment, Prescription Skin Care’s skilled laser technician will begin by shaving any of the unwanted hair resting above the skin so that the light can better penetrate the hair follicles. Once this step is complete, a handheld laser will then be moved carefully over the treatment area, delivering short bursts of light to hundreds of hair follicles at a time.

Results can be expected to last several months, years, or permanently depending on the individual client and number of sessions.

Laser hair removal for men

Our laser hair removal services allow men to take control of their personal appearance. Using our state-the-art technology, we can target larger areas of hair that grow on the back, shoulders, chest or legs, to help you create a cleaner, more defined look.

Laser hair removal for the face has become a common request from our male clients. Shaving regularly can become tedious and frequently causes inflammation, ingrown hairs and other damage to the skin. Many men are turning to laser treatment as an efficient, permanent and proven alternative.

Laser hair removal for women

Taking pride in your appearance can have a significant influence on your confidence and self-esteem.

Laser hair removal is an effective, long-term personal maintenance solution which allows women to eliminate unwanted or unsightly hairs in a safe and discreet manner. The expert laser hair removal team at Prescription Skin Care can help you to remove hair from your face, legs, underarms or bikini line, while leaving your skin healthy and smooth. Waxing, shaving or plucking will no longer be necessary, and the long-lasting effects will give you a confidence that temporary methods cannot deliver.
