Laser hair removal procedure

Laser hair removal procedure is straightforward, providing a safe and compared to waxing, virtually painless treatment.

The pain level is similar to an elastic band being flicked against the skin. As technology progresses the laser machines are providing a more comfortable treatment. Advancements in spot size, cooling and technologies to lessen the pain caused, during the laser treatment.

The Laser Consultation – Before beginning your course of laser hair removal you will be required to come in for a full assessment and free patch test. This is to make sure you do not have any adverse reaction to the laser procedure. Despite being very rare, it is better to be safe than sorry. We perform a patch test close to the area you are having treated, after 48 hours and once we know all is fine you can then proceed with the treatment course.

The Laser Machine – At Zest we use the CYNOSURE Elite platform the benchmark in laser technology and is used by leading plastic surgery and laser aesthetic clinics. We have two technologies for hair removal. The Alexandrite and the ND YAG, the Alexandrite machine is used for lighter skin tones and the ND YAG is used for darker skin tones. Having dual technology lasers means we are able to treat all skin types from the fairest through to the darkest. How many sessions will I need? – The typical course length is 6 sessions, in very rare cases you may require 8 to 10 although this is not common. If you have had laser treatment for hair removal before

How many sessions will I need? – The typical course length is 6 sessions, in very rare cases you may require 8 to 10 although this is not common. If you have had laser treatment for hair removal before and expected a better outcome than you got, then as we like to say, you should have visited Zest. It is unfortunate that with many machines on the market coupled with price point pressure many clinics and salons are just not providing the best results. At Zest, our reputation means everything to us and our reviews are a testament to the quality of service and results we provide.
