PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION

We are making use of the latest light technology to provide the optimal parameters for each individual, ensuring safe, fast and effective treatment, virtually pain free.

The light units are non-laser, emitting light across a broad range of wavelengths from yellow to the near infrared region of the spectrum. The harmful shorter wavelengths and the unusable longer wavelengths are filtered out. Depending upon the treatment being carried out, light emitted from the machine is preferentially absorbed by the specific structure in the skin.

The light source is attracted to Melanin, which is found in hair. During the treatment, gel is applied to the skin to aid the treatment. The applicator (head) is then applied to the skin and light pulses sent from the applicator . The light will be absorbed into the hair follicle causing a heat reaction within the follicle to destroy the hair.

FAQ:

How often should one do the treatment?

Treatments are carried out at apporoximately four weekly intervals and 8 treatments are a good average but is different for every client and can be influenced by so many factors, like hormones, growth factors, steroids etc.

Why is hair not gone with one treatment?

Your hair has got 3 different growth stages: Anagen(active), Catagen(transition) and Telogen(resting). It takes 3-4 weeks for the hair to go from Anagen to Telogen.

Hair needs to be treated in Anagen phase (active growth phase) when the hair is attached to its base for the treatment to be effective.

After telogen(resting phase) the hair falls out and returns to Anagen to produce a new hair. Hair follicles are in any one of the 3 stages at any time. Only 20% of the hair is in Anagen at the same time. Our goal is to treat every follicle during its Anagen stage because only at this stage does the follicle contain the dermal papilla that is necessary for hair growth. With ongoing treatments, we are able to treat most follicles during Anagen. (8 sessions are a good average, but can vary from client to client)

Does the client need to shave prior to treatment?

To assess hair before treatment, hair needs to be roughly 1-3mm long. If hairs are too long they can absorb the energy and prevent all of it reaching the base of the hair follicle which is the target area. No waxing, veet or plucking in between treatments. Wax can be done only within 1-5 days of treatment.

What type of client can be treated for hair removal?

Clients with black hair will find the treatment most effective due to the large concentration of melanin in the hair that will ensure an optimal absorption of the light energy and convert it to heat. Blonde hair (grey/white) will not be effective as there is no or little melanin to absorb the light.

What results can the client expect from hair removal treatment?

Hair will become reduced, finer and less pigmented in the treated area.

EYELASH EXTENSIONS

They are semi-permanent and made from synthetic fibers.  Each lash is applied one by one to your own natural lashes with proper care and with  touch-ups visits they can last a long time.  Normally a person’s natural eyelash falls out every 60-90 days and a new lash grows in immediately.  Therefore, it is necessary to get touch ups to fill in the fallen lashes.  

We recommend a fill every 2-3 weeks, however, this will vary from person to person. Your natural lash cycle as well as  how you take care of your lashes will affect how long it will last.

In threading, a thin (cotton or polyester) thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short rows of hair. This allows a more prominent shape for eyebrows and a smoother feel than waxing or tweezing.
