Laser Hair Removal Durban

Remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort and more reliably

You may be surprised to learn that virtually your entire body is covered with hair.  Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it usually isn’t visible to the naked eye.

Hair type

But when darker, courser hair appears in places which may make you uncomfortable like on the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, legs or underarms in women or on the shoulders, chest and back of men, it may be time to consider Laser Hair Removal.

Lighter, Grey and blond hair can also be safely removed with the Laser after it has been treated with a product which is specifically used for this purpose.

How is the procedure performed?

Laser Hair Removal DurbanThe system emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle.  The laser is pulsed or turned on, for only a fraction of a second.  The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system’s unique patented contact-cooling hand piece, the ChillTip, helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery.

Is the procedure safe?

The Lumenis® and Lightsheer® DUET laser hair removal system safely and effectively treats all skin types (Fitzpatrick Skin Types 1 – VI).

Slight discomfort may be experienced during each laser pulse and red and sensitive skin may be experienced for about 24 hours after treatment.  The patented ChillTip provides continuous contact cooling of the epidermis for maximum safety and comfort.

Furthermore the use of our Zimmer Cooler pre, during and post treatment dramatically reduces the discomfort associated with this treatment.

How long does the procedure take?

The laser beam only works on actively growing hair follicles at the time of the treatment – hair will continue to grow from follicles which are not active at the time of the treatment, therefore a course of treatments is required before the area is fully clear of hair.  Treatment sessions may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more depending on the size of the area being treated.
