When you have unwanted hair growth, especially on a very visible area of the body, using temporary hair removal methods - like shaving - can be a real burden. It can dampen confidence and lower self-esteem. We’ve seen the effect Laser Hair Removal has in these same people, and the results are often life-changing.
If you want to permanently reduce unwanted hair on almost any area of your body, Laser Hair Removal is the answer.
At Kingston Laser & Aesthetics we use the best laser available in the industry, worldwide, the Syneron Candela Gentle Max Pro.
At Kingston Laser & Aesthetics we use the best laser available in the industry, the Syneron Candela Gentle Max Pro which includes both Alexandrite and ND Yag laser heads, so that we are able to treat all skin types, including darker and Asian skin types.
The Gentle Max Pro is a powerful laser with a range of spot sizes, making it one of those most effective lasers for hair removal for larger body areas like full legs, back and chest, or even for full body laser hair removal. With smaller spot sizes, the Gentle Max Pro delivers excellent results quickly and effectively for smaller areas such as bikini line, beard, sideburns, upper lip and full facial hair removal.
Our lasers are the most advanced in the industry, meaning we can treat virtually all skin tones with very few exceptions, so long as you have dark pigment (melanin) in your hair. Unfortunately Laser Hair Removal is not suitable if you have white/silver/blonde or red hair or if there is a medical condition contradicating treatment. We do provide electrolysis hair removal for lighter hair colors. Your therapist will discuss this with you at consultation.
Kingston Laser & Aesthetics use the most advanced laser technology - our machines cost considerably more than cheaper IPL lasers. Laser energy is delivered through a small hand piece operated by your practitioner. The laser delivers an intense beam of light, which is absorbed by the hair follicle and converted to heat, while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected. At Kingston Laser & Aesthetics we use the Syneron Candela Gentle Max Pro.This is why treatment is effective on a wide variety of skin tones, as only the root of the hair is targeted and not the surrounding skin, (unlike IPL). Each beam is also accompanied with a quick jet of cryogen spray milliseconds before the beam is emitted to minimise discomfort.
Candela's Laser Hair Removal treatments use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable durations—milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.
Skin may be slightly red immediately following the procedure. This typically lasts from a few minutes to several hours after the procedure.
Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax 4 to 6 weeks before and after treatment. Shaving is permitted and ideal the day before treatment is due. to minimise discomfort. Wait for tanned skin to fade before beginning any treatment.
Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Generally all areas will require at least six to eight treatments at 4-6 week intervals. This depends on many factors including your skin and hair type, ethnic background, hormonal balance, and skin sensitivity.
Laser only destroys hairs when they're in the growth phase. At any one moment 20% of hairs are resting or dormant. Repeated sessions will treat these hairs when they re-enter the growth phase. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair colour and type, body area and skin tone.
Typically, after 1-2 treatments you will notice some reduction in growth and you may notice that the hair starts to grow back slightly thinner. After 3-5 treatments most clients see noticeable reductions in hair growth, and the skin begins to feel smoother. After 6-8 treatments growth is permanently reduced, however hormonal areas like the face may require more sessions. Your therapist will assess your hair and skin type and discuss your expectations at consultation.
With proven results, Laser can treat all external areas of the body and face with no burning or scarring. Laser and light-based treatments have been safely used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. Side effects may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (a laser bruise) in the treated area—these usually do not last more than a few days.
The treatment isn't as expensive as you might think- it's actually cheaper now than it has been for the past ten years.
It's recommended that you have a course of treatments and therefore a discounted package will apply, ensuring that you get the best possible value for your money.
Not all Laser Hair Removal treatments are the same. Many clinics offer IPL (intense pulse light). These tend to be the offers that you see on popular daily deals websites. There's a big difference: The lasers in IPL cost considerably less. The energy is produced by a lamp – similar to a light bulb – and produces a variety of light waves. This means the light rays aren't targeted specifically at the hair follicles and can heat the skin considerably. Because of this, it is usually limited to use on fairer skin types, and has been known to cause severe damage to darker skin.
Our lasers cost considerably more and are used in hospitals and clinics worldwide. They use an intensely concentrated beam of light, which only targets melanin in the hair follicles and not the melanin in the surrounding skin tissue. The cooling cryogen spray also minimises discomfort and this is why we can treat a variety of skin tones safely.
