Unwanted body and facial hair can have a significant effect on your comfort levels and self-confidence. If you find yourself withdrawing from social activities, shying away from close personal interaction, or just not feeling comfortable as the result of unwanted hair, we're here to help.
Whether it's fuzz on your upper lip, individual hairs on your chin, female 'sideburns', or a monobrow, having hair in the wrong places is now avoidable.
Wave goodbye to unwanted hair for good with advanced laser hair removal treatment at Facelab that will leave you feeling silky smooth.
There is no minimum age for laser hair removal. However, parental consent is required for patients under 18 years of age as the lasers used are 'medical grade' and the procedure is considered to be a 'medical treatment'.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) devices emit a wider range of wavelengths, and collateral cellular damage is more common. When laser hair removal is performed at Facelab, a medical-grade laser is used emitting a single wavelength of energy targeting only the necessary cells required for hair growth reduction.
Your face is the most fragile part of you. Unlike the rest of your body, it's always on display and impossible to hide. This can be overwhelming for someone who experiences confidence issues as a result of unwanted facial hair.
Laser hair removal is a great way to eliminate unwanted facial hair for good. Unlike plucking, waxing, shaving, threading, or depilatory creams and other topicals, laser facial hair removal when performed at Facelab is permanent.
Unwanted body hair can also be the cause of frustration and anxiety. Women often have unwanted hair patches on their bodies, with the forearms, legs, and neck all being common treatment areas. Just like facial hair, at Facelab unwanted body hair can be permanently removed.
At Facelab, we achieve optimal results with strict treatment protocols that are customised to individual needs. Treatment is carried out based on the specific stage of hair growth. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal are people with light coloured skin tones who have dark hair in the active phase of the hair growth cycle.
Laser hair removal treatment always needs to be repeated. Hair follicles grow at different rates, and they are not all in the same phase of growth at the time of treatment. There are four main stages of hair growth, and it is the follicles in the active growth phase (Anagen) that are most susceptible to laser energy. Anywhere from 3 to 8 treatments may be necessary to capture each follicle in its growth phase and shut down the follicle forever.
With laser hair removal, preparation is vital to ensure the best results. Before treatment, it is essential to avoid plucking or waxing for at least two weeks. The hair should then be shaved, and the area cleaned and disinfected. Attending a FaceLab clinic is a safe and effective way to eliminate unwanted facial or body hair.
Occasionally, we perform a 'laser test patch' before treating our patients with laser hair removal. The test patch allows when necessary, the Facelab clinician to make small adjustments to the laser’s power parameters to achieve the best results with minimal risk.
Facelab's Nd:YAG laser emits a particular wavelength of energy that targets the melanin (pigment) in the hair shaft and follicle. This energy is absorbed by the pigment, which causes a slight increase in temperature that destroys both the hair follicle and it's associated stem cell. All of this takes place while protecting the surrounding cells where the melanin concentration is lower.
FaceLab specialises in laser hair removal for all unwanted face and body hair. Our experienced laser certified clinicians perform safe and effective procedures to eliminate unwanted hair from your life.
