What does the treatment involve?

After preparing the area to be treated by shaving the night before or day of treatment, your therapist will mark the areas to be treated by the laser. The laser is then placed above the skin, targeting the hair follicles. Shaving prior is important to keep hair growth visible for the laser to target and prevent burning of the hair; waxing will inhibit this detection making the treatment ineffective. You will feel light and sharp ping-like sensations from the laser but your comfort will not be compromised with cold air blowing on the skin, from an attachment of the laser device. You will be advised to avoid direct UV exposure of the treated areas for 2 weeks to protect your skin. After hair grows back after your treatment (4-6 weeks post-treatment) you will have another treatment. It is best to continue your course consistently with intervals of 4-6 weeks to achieve the best results.

How many treatments do I need?

It is recommended to have a course of 6 treatments minimum for successful hair removal. Because individual hairs grow at varying rates and cycles, multiple treatments allow the laser to detect the individual hairs once their pigment is visible against your skin. You may need maintenance treatments for long-term results.

How quickly will I see results?

You will notice results 2 weeks after your treatment when the hair will fall from it follicle. Hair will gradually grow back but it will grow back weaker. Once the hair has grown and is detectable on the skin, another treatment will target new hair growth and hair loss will follow 2 weeks post-treatment and hair will grow back weaker than before. This process will repeat until hair stops growing back.

Nd:Yag and Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal

* Treats all skin types
* Permanent results
* Treats whole body

To remove unwanted facial hair, Bodyvie’s laser hair removal’s double energy source, Alexandrite and Nd:Yag, can be synchronised to work independently or simultaneously to tailor treatment according to your unique skin type, hair colour and thickness, for safe and effective treatment.

Alexandrite is known as the gold standard for treating light skin types and the Nd:Yag is tailored for darker skin types without risking hyperpigmentation or ineffective results. After your first treatment of hair removal, your targeted hair will fall out two weeks post-treatment and will grow back weaker. After a total of 4 weeks post-treatment, when the hair has grown back for the laser to detect, another session will target the regrown hair, it will fall out again after two weeks and grow back even weaker than before, this will continue until hair fails to grow back.

Maintenance sessions may be required. For optimal results, lasers are more effective when hair is at an early growth stage and visible, it is best to avoid waxing, because not all hairs will be at the same stage of the growth cycle and more treatments will be needed to completely remove unwanted hair. Depending on the cause of excess hair, our laser hair removal reduces hair growth in target areas, whether it is the upper lip, naval, bikini area, legs, underarms or the whole body.

Excess hair can be genetic or hormonal, regardless, it can effect your confidence. Laser hair removal treatment works to target the pigment of the hair you would like to remove. The light energy from the laser is converted to heat to damage the hair follicles, this damage stops or delays future hair growth. As hair grows at varying cycles, multiple treatments are needed to target each active hair follicle.
