got a question? we'll answer it

Laser hair removal treatments work using a concentrated beam of light aimed directly at the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigments in the hair – which is why laser hair removal works best on dark hair. This damages the follicles, inhibiting future growth over the course of multiple laser hair removal sessions.

Laser hair reduction provides more permanent results compared to other forms of hair removal such as waxing. Laser hair removal will save you money and effort in the long run. It is a short-term commitment for long term results and will provide at least 80-90% permanent hair reduction after a course of treatments. Unlike other methods, such as waxing, tweezing and threading, there is no need to regrow hair prior to treatments and therefore clients can always be hair free. Laser can provide a long-term solution to ingrown hair, red bumps and can reduce the symptoms of PCOS and folliculitis.

We use the world’s fastest and most powerful machine. Our machine can treat a bigger area in very little time, therefore our service is much more convenient for clients who have a busy schedule. Additionally, we takes great pride in the safety and effectiveness of our service, so therefore we have a specific laser protection advisor and expert medical practionioner assigned to our clinic. Our clinic is registered with RQIA to ensure our practice and standards are of a high quality. This also means we are regulated and inspected on a yearly basis so clients can have confidence in our service. We are trained to a high standard and provide a confidential and professional service, welcoming everyone from all backgrounds, race, sexual orientation and gender identities.

Luckily the Eneka Pro 5000w diode laser machine can treat most skin tones safely. The hair must be darker than the skin tone, therefore we would not treat clients with a skin type 6 according to the Fitzpatrick scaling, however can treat from type 1-5.

The laser targets colours from light brown to black. Laser machines will not see grey, blonde or red hair.

Yes! The Eneka Pro 5000w Diode Laser Machine has advanced and innovative software that avoids accidental errors. Our machine is a medical grade device which evidences it’s high quality and is proven to work effectively and safely. We often get asked is there any link between laser hair removal and cancer and can confirm that there is no known research to suggest that there is a link. Additoionally there is no known research to suggest it affects fertility or harm to an unborn baby. We simply do not treat any clients who are pregnant due to the ineffectiveness of the treatment due to hormonal imbalances when pregnant. 

Slight discomfort can be expected during treatments and if anything, the client may feel a warm prickly sensation which means the laser is working. Our machine has an incorporated cooling tip which provides a numbing effect to ensure clients have a comfortable experience.

On average 6-8 sessions. The number of sessions depends on the area to be treated, colour and thickness of hair, skin type and other specific factors related to the client, such as hormonal conditions. We suggest a minimum of 6 sessions. If a client is more hormonal or for other genetic factors they may require more than 8 sessions within a course. We aim to reduce the hair by 80-90% so you may have some finer and lighter hairs remaining after the course of treatments, however this is a major reduction.  

Any hairs that we kill during laser treatments are permanently killed and cannot re-grow. However any future hormonal changes or genetic factors may result in future growth of new hairs and therefore top up sessions are required. Typically we would suggest a top up once every 6-12 months for clients who do not have a hormonal imbalance. Clients with a hormonal imbalance may require top ups sooner if new hair growth appears. 

For the best results you should have laser treatments for all sites on the face every 4-6 weeks and every 4-8 weeks on the body. When you are having laser, only a follicle in the active growth stage will be treated. This means that only some of the hair is destroyed during each single session and explains the need for a course of laser treatments to target all hairs. It will take 4-6 weeks (face) and 4-8 weeks (body) for hair that was not in the active growth stage to get into the active growth stage and be ready to treat during the next treatment session.

No, unfortunately we cannot treat over tattoos. We can treat around the tattooed areas with a gap of 3cm.
