If you’re one of the many thousands of people in the UK that experiences excess or unwanted hair on the face or body, you’ll know what a nuisance it can be to keep it at bay. The average woman spends around £12,000 in her lifetime on hair removal products and treatments; a sobering thought when you consider that most of them will only provide a temporary solution and in many cases, can be rather time consuming and painful. At Care for Skin in Clitheroe, we understand the frustration you can experience in managing excess hair and provide one of the most effective, permanent solutions around, to combat this issue: laser hair removal.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal utilises specially chosen wavelengths of light energy which penetrates in to the hair follicle and heats the pigment (melanin) in the hair, which gives the hair it’s colour. This heating causes the hair follicle to be disabled and stop producing hair growth. In a course of treatment, up to 90% of the hairs can be permanently affected.
Laser hair removal is an extremely popular treatment and has developed in its efficacy considerably over the past 5 years. Traditional laser treatments have been known to be painful and in some cases, ineffective, due to primitive technology. However, here at Care for Skin, we use the gold standard of laser hair removal devices, the Cynosure Elite + device. This is an award winning, world class technology from a highly-respected global laser brand.
How does laser hair removal work?
Cynosure Elite + uses multi-wave laser technology (Alexandrite and ND Yag) which, when applied to the skin stops the blood supply to the hair, thus stunting its growth. The laser permanently limits each follicle’s ability to regrow the hair and the hair falls out, leaving the skin silky smooth. Multi-wavelength technology allows for use on all skin types. During a treatment with laser hair removal the surrounding skin and tissue is left unaffected, making it totally safe procedure.
Some may argue that laser hair removal can be a timely and lengthy procedure. Nowadays this is not the case. Our results are achieved faster than some other laser technologies, due to the high-power, dual wavelength of Cynosure™ Elite+ systems.
What’s more, unlike painful waxing or electrolysis, laser hair removal offers minimal discomfort and very little downtime. You may feel a slight ‘flicking’ sensation as the laser treats the hair, but this is not painful and is entirely tolerable.
Cynosure Elite + is safe for all areas of the face and body, so you can effectively treat excess hair, including conditions such as Hirsutism, which is a condition experienced by mostly Asian women, where excess hair can grow on the face. We’re delighted to offer treatments for these unwanted, sometimes embarrassing conditions, in our Clitheroe clinic.
