What to Expect
We have been performing light based technology services since 2004. We strongly believe that the best results are obtained by having an initial consultation with us and patch test. Not any two hair and skins are the same; lifestyle choices also determine the outcome.
Even if you have experienced Laser or IPL hair removal services performed before, different machines and technicians can mean varied results. Come and see us for a Consultation.
Most patients receive between 6-12 treatments performed 4-8 weeks apart. The duration of each individual treatment will depend on the area being treated.

Frequently Asked Questions
The ideal candidate for PHR hair removal has dark hair and fair skin. Darker skin absorbs more light, and lighter skin interferes less with the movement of the light into the hair follicle. Dark or tanned skins run a higher risk of pigmentation changes following the procedure.
Keep in mind that it’s not impossible to treat darker skinned individuals. We always require a test patch and will require more visits using more conservative settings.
After your treatment you can expect redness in the area. This usually lasts for a couple of hours but can last up to one day. You may feel like you have been sun burnt in the area and this normally takes about one day to subside.
For a few days afterwards there can be some slight scabbing which is normal. We recommend moisturising with Aloe Vera as this can speed up the healing process.
Some people describe the lasers pulse as a light tingling or stinging sensation as is usually no more painful than waxing or plucking a few hairs. The vast majority of people have no problems at all with the procedure.
Some areas of the body are more sensitive than others and a topical cream may be used to decrease the sensation further more.
Lasers and IPL that are designed for hair removal emits light at wavelengths to be absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle (pigment gives hair its colour). The laser is then pulsed only for a fraction of a second.
The duration of each pulse is just long enough to disrupt the hair follicle. When the pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the laser light, energy is converted into heat and these results in thermal damage to the hair follicle. This thermal damage causes delayed re-growth of the hair resulting in permanent destruction of the hair follicle.
Hair grows in cycles. PHR effective on hair in its actively growing cycle. At any one time there will only be certain hairs in that growing phase. This means that consistent treatments at appropriate intervals are absolutely necessary for the best possible results.
This varies anywhere from 2-12 treatments. That said though, some clients have been very happy with the result after just a few treatments. From your test patch we can usually see how many more treatments it will take to achieve your desired result, which often averages out at about six.
Generally any part of the body can be treated. Exceptions include areas in close proximity to the eyes, the inner ear and nose. The most popular areas for hair removal are the underarms, bikini, upper lip, chin, face, legs, back & chest.
Consultations are required before your PHR treatment to make sure this service is suitable for you. Not everyone can have PHR so we perform a small test patch to ensure you don’t have any adverse reactions. We also go through the entire process with you and advise you on pre and post treatment care.
