Laser hair removal - as opposed to IPL (intense pulsed light) - is the most successful method of long-term hair reduction and you can expect up to 90 per cent hair removal in as little as six treatments.
Like with so many things in life, you get what you pay for. The cost of treatment at Elanic in Glasgow may be a little higher than our competitors, who use less successful lasers and IPL devices, but we believe that if you have taken the plunge then you should be treated by highly trained practitioners using some of the most advanced laser technology in a safe and effective manner.
Which areas can be treated with laser hair removal?
By using two of the most effective laser hair removal systems on the market, specifically for pale and darker or suntanned skin, we can treat the vast majority of skin types on the following areas:
- Bikini line
- Chest and stomach
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal works by using a specific wavelength of laser light that is picked up by melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. The highest concentration of melanin is in the hair bulbs, where hairs grow from. This means that if a laser is shone onto the skin, the hairs pick up the most energy and heat up. Heating them sufficiently destroys the cells from which a hair grows preventing the hair from growing again.
This only works for hairs that are currently in an active growth phase. Only about a third of all hairs are in an active growth phase at any time, which is why treatment is repeated every month for between six and eight treatments.
