Hair removal using lasers is achieved by a selective photothermolysis process during which energy in the form of a specific optimal wavelength is delivered into the hair shaft and pigmented follicular epithelium. The light is primarily absorbed by the endogenous chromophore melanin and results in a rapid rise in temperature and subsequent heat transfer to adjacent tissue, causing local thermal necrosis of the follicles’ regenerative structures.
Since different patients differ in their skin and hair colour as well as their hair type, the laser system used must include several factors to ensure effective permanent hair reduction to suite all skin and hair types while providing maximal skin protection.

As the population ages, ever-increasing numbers of people are interested in improving their appearance. IPL treatments can be used to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance.
IPL treatment improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photo rejuvenation forface and body. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.
The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck and hands—virtually anywhere that sun damage shows.
