“I can’t believe I didn’t have laser hair removal sooner.” Everyone who’s had it says the same.
The draw backs of waxing and shaving are well-known. With razor bumps from ingrown hairs and the constant cycle of hair regrowth to contend with, more and more men and women are turning to permanent laser hair reduction. Our team of experienced laser practitioners is led by Michele Ballam who has over 20 years experience of laser treatment and training other practitioners.
We use the Candela |Gentlemax Pro laser, which treats indications such as benign pigmentated lesions and wrinkles as well as performing permanent hair reduction. The platform combines both 755 nm Alexandrite and 1064 nm Nd:YAG wavelengths, has multiple spot sizes from 1.5mm up to 24mm, a patented dynamic cooling device which scales with fluence and provides consistent protection; and a Plus Air Cooling option to help with any discomfort during treatments.
There are some lasers on the market that do not cater to darker skin tones as safely and effectively as the Max Pro. This laser penetrates deeper than most, missing the upper layers of skin where the pigment lies, making it one of the safest lasers on the market for laser hair removal, with very low instances of side effects. This means we can target Asian and Black skin tones safely and effectively.

We offer a discount for courses booked and can discuss how many treatments are likely to be needed.
Is laser painful?
One concern that often holds people back is the worry that the treatments are painful. The Candela GentleMax Pro system which has a built in patented Dynamic Cooling DeviceTM (DCDTM). This prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable durations – milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective. This Candela GentleMax Pro system is the gold standard for laser hair removal and it is recognised the world over for its high performance treatment capabilities in terms of speed, efficacy, ease-of-use, outstanding performance, safety and patient satisfaction.
