Laser Hair Removal

VIVO Clinic offers Laser Hair Removal, using advanced Tri-Beam Ice 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 cost-effective alternative to regular shaving, or waxing, as it can result in a 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.

Tri-Beam Ice

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

Our HD Tri-Beam Ice combines three different wavelengths into one applicator to target and destroy hair follicles in an effective and painless treatment. The cooling feature ensures that the surface of the skin does not get too hot, and prevents superficial burns. The HD Tri-Beam Ice uses diode technology to further reduce any pain or discomfort, and make treatments a pleasant experience for all. By using three wavelengths, our Laser Hair Removal treatment is suitable for multiple areas of the body, as well as all skin types and hair colours. Our advanced technology can also treat tanned skin, so you don’t have to stay out of the sun beforehand!

The HD Tri-Beam Ice uses a surrounded sapphire tip. The gentle cooling treatment works by initiating the numerous cooling pumps within the applicator to slowly release cooling energy which is conducted through our specialised conductive gel.

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.

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 show you how the treatment works. This also allows our consultants to give you more realistic expectations in regards to the results, and advise 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 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

Many people are concerned that Laser Hair Removal is painful and will negatively affect the skin. However, our HD Tri-Beam Ice technology cools the skin so that it remains unharmed, and ensures that different layers of the skin do not exceed certain temperatures. The epidermis which is found on the surface of the skin is maintained at roughly 25°C by using the cooling the function. The follicles are heated to around 50°C. This means that the hair follicles are destroyed without damaging or causing burns to the skin. The short repetitions of the Pulse Laser cause the heat to gradually build up, making the treatment as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

As a result of the advanced cooling technology, this reduces any side effects that may be caused by Laser Hair Removal such as scabbing or blistering. The HD Tri-Beam Ice also decreases signs of redness that may occur directly after the treatment so you can immediately get back to your daily life!

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.
