Most facial hair in ladies is hormonally influenced and ideally should not be waxed, plucked or threaded as this encourages growth making it worse. A consultation is required before treatment can begin.
INTENSE PULSED LIGHT is also a method of permanent hair reduction. An intense pulsed light is introduced to the hair via a hand piece. The light is attracted to the pigment in your hair and travels via the colour to the base of the follicle where it becomes heat. The heat destroys the germanative part of the hair and cauterises the blood supply feeding the root. The hair needs to be dark for the treatment to be effective. Actively growing hairs are targeted and destroyed at each session, giving a permanent reduction. Unfortunately not all hairs grow at the same time and take 4-6 weeks to complete a cycle of growth, therefore, a course of spaced treatments are required to achieve result. An average number of treatments is between 6-10. Whole areas are treated in a session so prices vary according to the area being treated.
