Laser Hair Removal

VIVO Clinic offers Laser Hair Removal using advanced technology to provide a comfortable and highly effective treatment. It is safe, as it will not cause burns to the skin, and has a potentially long-lasting effect. It is an easier and more cost-effective alternative to regular shaving, or waxing, as it offers permanent reduction in hair growth.

Our multi-wavelength platform targets follicles, so they are no longer able to produce hair. This is achieved by using lasers to focus heat onto hair, which is absorbed and subsequently damages the follicle.

The most effective and comfortable Laser Hair Removal treatment available today.

Unlike many competing treatments, our laser hair removal technology is suitable for most hair colours and skin types and can be used almost anywhere on the body. This is because the wavelengths of the lasers can be adjusted, producing longer wavelengths for those with darker skin so it can pass through the melanin in the skin.

Why choose us?

Many clinics offer laser hair removal, but there are several very good reasons why you should choose VIVO Clinic.

 

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Hair Removal Process
  1. Initially, hair should be visible above the surface of the skin. Laser Hair Removal yields the best results when hair follicles are in their ‘growth’ phase, where the hair is at its healthiest point. During this phase, hair contains its highest level of the pigment melanin which gives the hair its colour. The greater the pigment, the more heat can be absorbed by the hair, leading to increased damage to the follicle.
  2. The laser targets the hair and the follicle. The hair absorbs the heat first, and this gradually damages the follicle. Heat is absorbed better by darker hair because the hair contains more pigment.
  3. The follicle is weakened or destroyed. The hair follicle may not be destroyed straight away, and the damage done from one treatment may vary depending on your hair colour and skin type. Furthermore, not all hair follicles are in their ‘growth’ stage at the same time, so some follicles will receive more damage than others in one session. This is why we recommend a course of treatments to ensure that as many hair follicles as possible are targeted and damaged.
  4. Once the follicle is gone the hair cannot regrow.

Laser Hair Removal is more effective than other hair removal treatments on the market because it targets the follicle rather than only the hair shaft. This is a permanent solution to unwanted hair growth.

Hair Removal Effectiveness

Procedure

Before you undergo any treatment, we will conduct a consultation and a patch test. We do this to determine whether you are suitable for the treatment, and to directly show you how the treatment works. This also allows our consultants to give you more realistic expectations in regards to the results, and how many treatments you may need.

You must inform your consultant if you have recently tanned, as we will need to use different laser settings.

For your safety, we will give you a pair of special tinted glasses to wear during the procedure so that the light from the laser does not harm your eyes. The laser will then be placed close to the skin in the treatment area for a few seconds to heat up the hair and damage the follicles. The time of the procedure will depend on the size of the area being treated.

This may sound daunting but don’t worry! Your practitioner will always make sure that you are comfortable, and can briefly stop the procedure if you need a break. The treatment is perfectly safe, and does not damage the skin surrounding the hair although it may appear a little red directly after the procedure. The procedure is not painful, but you may feel a little discomfort.

Aftercare

You will receive aftercare information during your consultation before the Laser Hair Removal procedure. However, here are some of the basics so you can prepare for it!

Do not use saunas, hot showers or steam rooms for at least 72 hours after the procedure, as your skin may be sensitive. It is also advised that you refrain from excessive exercise for a few days.

Make sure that you used a broad spectrum sun cream, and avoid sunbeds or direct exposure to sunlight for a few days after the treatment.

Treatment Areas

Laser Hair Removal is suitable for people of any gender, and you can have the treatment in a variety of areas, which are pictured below.
