At MEDISKIN we use only the best equipment in the industry: The Candela GentleLASE Alexandrite Laser System, the most advanced FDA approved grade 4 medical laser to treat unwanted hair.
A revolutionary long pulse high-energy laser system emits a gentle beam of light that directly targets the pigment in the hair where it is then absorbed. Only Candela lasers feature the Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) to maximize patient safety and comfort.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Candela is the best known name for laser hair removal. The visible light source used in this treatment is attracted to melanin, which is the pigment found in dark hair. Because the light is attracted to dark colours the darker the hair is, the more effective the treatment. The melanin absorbs the light causing a heat reaction in the hair follicle, effectively destroying it, rendering it unable to produce a new hair.
What can I expect at my Laser Hair Removal Appointment?
At MEDISKIN our very highly trained therapists will perform a thorough consultation with you to confirm your suitability for the treatment and will also perform a laser patch test in order to determine your personal treatment settings to avoid adverse reactions from occuring. When you arrive for your first laser hair removal treatment you will be provided with eye protection to wear throughout. This is to protect your eyes from the light of the laser. Your therapist will perform the laser treatment using a hand-held device which will produce a cooling spray on each shot. This will cool the area being treated and minimise discomfort. A treatment could take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the area being treated.
Am I suitable for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair Removal is attracted to the pigment in hair. If there is no pigment, there is nothing for the laser to target, and results will not be possible. Therefore, the treatment may not work on hair that is blonde, red or grey. The general rule of thumb is, the darker the hair and lighter the skin, the better the results will be.
How many treatments will I require?
The number of sessions depends on the treatment you require and the condition of your skin. For hair removal, most people require at least 6 to 8 treatments, as the process is only effective when the hair follicle is in its active growth phase. Other conditions may clear in fewer treatments, it mostly depends on the individual person as each client being treated is different. Maintenance treatments may be required after your course as new hair growth can be stimulated due to hormonal changes, medication and illness.
Why Laser and not IPL (Intense Pulse Light) for hair removal?
Medical grade laser machines such as the Candela GentleLase used in Men are designed for permanent hair reduction. IPL machines are designed to treat skin conditions such as talengiactasia, rosacea, sun damage, pigmentation and acne. Laser machines produce a single concentrated beam of light which is directly targeted at the melanin in the hair follicle. Laser machines are tuned to emit the exact wave length required to treat your hair. IPL machines are not lasers. They emit a broad spectrum wave-length of light which cannot be focused, so only some can actually reach the hair. It is unethical for a professional centre to provide laser hair removal using IPL, as it is not what they are intended for and the running costs are much lower than that of a designated Laser machine.
