Permanent hair removal with the ALEXANDRITE LASER machine – the GOLD STANDARD in treating dark, unwanted hair
How does it work?
The laser emits a beam of light that passes through the skin, to the hair follicle. The energy is then transformed into heat, which destroys the follicle. The scientific principle called ‘Thermo kinetic Selectivity’, (TKS) makes this method of hair removal particularly effective.
Why is TKS important?
TKS makes it possible for Laser Energy to ‘select’ only hair follicles, while sparing surrounding skin from damage. This brings about the cosmetic results you want with the clinical results you need.

How do I know if I’m a candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
If you are concerned about unwanted hair, you are probably a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal.Almost everyone is a good candidate for hair removal with the Alexandrite Laser. The most dramatic results occurred on patients with light skin and dark hair, but TKS makes it possible for patients with darker skin to receive benefit from the procedure. Other factors can influence the treatment process & are evaluated in your initial consultation.
* The treatment is not suitable for grey, red or blonde hair.
Is Laser Treatment Painful?
Most patients describe the treatment as a series of slight pin pricks to the skin. Most patients experience this sensation without requiring anesthetics. Within about 30 minutes of treatment, the area may become pink or red & this may last for a few hours.
How many treatments are required?
Hair grows in cycles. The laser only affects hair when it is in its early-growth phase. The Laser will disable follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment. At any given time, some hair follicles will be in dormant phase. Repeated sessions will treat these follicles when they re-enter the growth phase. A scientific advance in medical laser technology gives us greater, safer and faster solutions to the problem of unwanted hair. It is called TKS and it’s only available in the type of laser used at this facility. In as little as 6 – 8 treatments, our laser removes unwanted hair from the legs, arms, back & shoulders — as well as underarms, the upper lip & bikini line. PLEASE NOTE: As this varies with each person we recommend that you budget for an average of 6 treatments.
Treatments are performed 4-6 weeks apart.
Treatment sessions may vary according to area treated and client’s individual needs.
Maintenance treatments may be necessary once per year
