As a recognised and regulated expert Laser Centre, Nova Aesthetic Clinic hosts the Gold Standard of laser hair removal treatments.
Almost everyone can relate to the inconvenience and costs associated with the frequent removal of unwanted facial or body hair. In addition to the time and cost associated with repeated waxing and shaving many experience negative effects of these treatments such as skin irritation and ingrown hairs.
For the ultimate solution to unwanted or excess hair we recommend the very best in laser hair removal with the world renowned Cynosure Elite.
Using cutting edge medical grade, FDA approved technology Nova’s skilled Laser Practitioners provide fast, effective, comfortable laser hair removal.
The laser uses safe, non-ionising wavelengths to zap and destroy hair follicles. The laser light is attracted to pigmentation in the hair, and delivers heat to damage the root so that the hair can no longer grow. Unlike IPL, Laser uses an exact wavelength to target the follicle with each shot, rather than a diffused IPL beam which is less powerful. The wavelengths used by the Cynosure Laser Elite laser system have been found to be the optimum for hair removal, superior to diode and SHR systems, meaning fewer treatments and faster results.
Laser hair removal is suitable for most skin types and for most people with no photo sensitising medical conditions.
By operating with two different wavelengths, Alexandrite and Nd:YAG, we are able to safely treat skin types regardless of skin colour. Best results are seen on darker thicker hairs with very blonde and grey hairs unlikely to respond.
At consultation and assessment our experts determine your suitability and personalise treatment parameters based on regulated medical protocols. Our experienced practitioners treat all areas of unwanted hair on both women and men, making this one of our most popular treatments across all ages.
Laser hair removal treatment intensities vary between individual ad hair type or thickness. Most people feel heat in the individual shots with the sensation described as similar to an elastic band flick. Our elite system operates with a powerful cooling blast, which enables a comfortable treatment in all areas.
For those that have never had treatment we always recommend a course of 4 treatments. Most people will see a dramatic reduction in hair following 4 sessions, and some will require top up or maintenance treatments. Treatments are typically between 4 – 7 weeks apart in order to catch all hairs in the correct phase of growth for successful result. For best resulst we recommend following the advised schedule, however later treatments are often spaced a little further apart, depending on regrowth.
Many people see an impressive reduction in regrowth following the first session, with the amount of hair growth lessoning more as each treatment is taken. Expected results are for a 79% reduction in hair following 3 sessions. Although the treatment courses span across months results begin after first treatment, meaning it’s a great treatment to start any time.
Following the initial course many people no longer need treatment, some may require a few further sessions and others wait another year or more before requiring a single top up treatment. At Nova we offer complimentary and continued review throughout your treatment programme and after.
