If unslightly facial or body hair is getting you down and causing you embarrassment then we have the perfect solution.
Laser Hair Removal reduces unwanted hair with pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle giving you permanent hair reduction. It is also an effective treatment for folliculitis (infected hair follicles) and ingrown hairs.
Laser hair removal machines use focused light to penetrate the epidermis (top layer) of the skin and target the underlying hair follicle. The light energy is transferred to thermal energy in the hair follicle. The hair’s melanin (pigment) absorbs the thermal energy and weakens the hair follicle gradually destroying it over time. Immediately after treatment, the area will be pink. You will experience mild discomfort during the treatment.
A course of treatments should be carried out at four to six weekly intervals depending on the area. The number of treatments needed will vary between patients, depending on skin colour, hair colour, area and amount of hair you need to reduce.
Combat hair loss with our hair growth and thickening treatments
If you are unhappy with thinning hair, come to our Hair Clinic for a consultation and we can fully evaluate the reasons for your hair loss and recommend optimum individual treatments for you.
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair growth for thinning hair and eyebrows.
Why use your own Platelets?Hair loss in men and women begins with hair becoming smaller, called miniaturisation. The hair on your head or eyebrows looks thinner and your hair loss gradually worsens. PRP has been scientifically proven to thicken these small hairs and prevent further hair loss. When platelets are activated in the body they produce proteins called growth factors. It is these growth factors that are thought to be able to help stimulate your hair, improving hair growth and thickening hair.What happens during your treatment? A small sample of your blood is processed in a specialised system designed to extract your platelets in a safe clinical manner. These platelets are then harvested into syringes and injected into the area you wish to be treated.PRP is from your own blood, known as autologous. As you are using your own tissue, it will not not cause you any allergic reaction or other risks.You will usually need three initial monthly sessions to achieve optimum results, followed by possibly a fourth treatment after 6 months. The need or frequency of future treatments varies. PRP treatments can safely be repeated for hair miniaturisation or thinning eyebrows if required.
