Here at Dr Aesthetica, we are using the latest and most advanced technology for laser hair removal – in fact, it is the first of its kind. The revolutionary square shape laser spot provides faster and more uniform coverage of the treatment area, with larger spots penetrating deeper meaning no overlap, no burns and no retouching missed areas – therefore causes little to no pain.
Despite what you may have read in the past, laser hair removal technology has come on leaps and bounds in later years. Your safety is of the upmost importance to us here at Dr Aesthetica, which is why we have invested in the latest technology on the market.
Splendor X is not the average hair removal laser, as it uses a blend of two different wavelengths being delivered simultaneously – allowing for the safest, most effective treatment.
Yes, our laser hair removal technology can removal hair on all skin types including tanned and darker skin tones all year round. We cater for all hair removal needs and want everyone to feel welcome to come to us.
No beauty clinic can 100% guarantee to permanently remove hair, as there are many factors in life which can cause re-growth (pregnancy or medication to name a few).
Here at Dr Aesthetica we use the most advanced technology to provide the best possible results for each individual skin type. Therefore during your consultation, we will discuss the best treatment plan for your unique needs in order to achieve optimum results long term.
On average, the best results are achieved in around 4-8 treatments within roughly a 6 to 12-week period. Of course, this depends on the area of treatment and the thickness of hair. So, some patients may require more sessions and occasional touch-ups once or twice per year to maintain the best results.
Most machines work best for light skin and dark hair, this contrast makes it easier for the laser to target the pigment in the hair follicle. Newer machines, like the Splendor X, have newer technology such as the ability to combine TWO separate lasers (Alex and NdYag) simultaneously to delivery the ultimate in hair removal. Best of all this allows us to treat ANY skin type and TANNED skin.
At Dr Aesthetica, we want to see the original hair, so we can assess what hair we are removing. We advise that you stop waxing, tweezing, or plucking hair you want to remove for two to six weeks before your appointment, though shaving is fine.
At your consultation, we will go through your medical history, family history and discuss how we can optimise hair removal. We complete a series of patch tests to determine what settings are optimal. We then advice waiting 7 days before we commence treatment. The day before treatment, we want you to shave the area that will be treated. We don’t advise shaving on the day as this can aggravate hair follicles.
Ingrown hairs cause inflammation, and it’s that inflammation which causes that lumpy, bumpy, angry look of the skin after waxing and shaving.
‘Men and women get ingrown hairs that come up like spots on the legs, bikini or beard area. Sometimes, by using lasers, we can improve that because it destroys the ingrown hairs at their follicles.
Wherever there is hair on your body there are three phases of growth: telogen, anagen and catagen phases. Some hairs are resting, some are growing, and some are falling out.
Depending on what cycle of growth they are in, the hair responds differently to lasers, You could treat one set of hair and it will respond quickly because it’s in the growing or falling out phase. Others might not respond because they’re in the resting phase.
It is because of these different stages that the treatment takes 8-12 sessions, between 6-8 weeks apart, to complete and catch 90 per cent of hair in its active phase.
I went to see the doctor to day 13.08.19 my consultation was excellent the doctor took all his time to talk to me felt at ease not rushed and talked to me about my different options because I was not sure were I wanted my filler so I left it with him that's how confident he made me feel he done my prosedure and was very happy we sorted out a plan for my skin so will definitely be going back soon thank you
Decided to take the plunge and get my tear troughs done, something I've wanted ever since I was in primary school. Am so happy with the results, and even happier with my experience. Dr Farmah was kind, reassuring and professional. The filler was painless and I could see the effects immediately, I look so much more awake now. Have already recommeded to a friend who is interested, will definitely be back. Thanks so much!
I came in recently and was taken back with how amazing the experience was. Both Baldeep and Kiran came across very professional, honest and personable at the same time. They provided an excellent service and helped my feel at ease, I would highly recommend.
