Long lasting results.
Shaving, waxing and depilatory creams are all temporary methods of hair removal. Electrolysis can offer permanent results it is a slow, invasive and painful process. Laser hair removal offers long-lasting results in a fraction of the time.
Any part of the body.
At Everything Skin we use theND Yag Laser. This is one of the best lasers for hair removal and is a fast, efficient and virtually painless. We can remove hair from any part of the body. This includes the chin, upper lip, cheeks, legs, arms and back. We also treat sensitive areas like the ears, nose, chest and bikini line.
One major benefit of the ND Yag laser is that it is very effective for laser hair removal and for large areas like legs and backs.
Any skin type and most hair colours
Unlike poor quality lasers and IPL machines, the ND Yag is safe to use on any skin type. All pigmented hairs respond to treatment. Blond, white and grey are not suitable for treatment.
The laser works by producing heat which damages the hair at the root, preventing regrowth. Protective cooling gel applied to the skin prevents damage at the skins surface. Along with the cooling tip on the hand piece of the laser.
The number of treatments
As the laser only targets the growing part of the hair. A course of treatments gives the best possible results, ensuring effective hair reduction. A course of laser hair removal treatments is four to six sessions spaced four to eight weeks apart.
You need to make sure the treated area is free from make-up, perfume, deodorant and body or face creams. The area should not be sun-tanned. Avoid waxing, threading and plucking for at least one month before treatment. If you have plucked hair from the area wait 2-3 weeks for the hairs to return.
You will need to protect the area from the sun for three months or use a sunscreen factor 30+.
