LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Unwanted facial/body hair is a problem for many people, affecting both men and women.
Laser hair removal is an effective, relatively cheap and safe method to stop unwanted hair in the long-term.
Laser technology is approved by the FDA for permanent hair reduction in humans of up to 90%.
Laser hair removal is suitable for people of all skin tones, and treatment will be adjusted by our laser hair therapists based on the colour of the patient’s hair.
A patch test is given upon your initial consultation where we will see what wavelength to use and how your skin reacts to the laser and you will be guided on the best treatment for your skin type and hair colour. At Doctors Makeover, we are using top of the range laser technology, namely Alexandrite, Cynasure Elite, Cynasure Apogee, Candela and YAG laser machines. Our range of laser equipment covers all types of hair & skin colours. In addition, we are also using state-of-the-art zimmer cooling systems for the comfort and better results of our clients.
