LASER/IPL HAIR REMOVAL
PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL
WHAT IS LASER/IPL INTENSE PULSED LIGHT HAIR REMOVAL
LASER /IPL HAIR REMOVAL is a fast and easy way to remove the stress of unwanted hair for both the face and body. If you are tired of shaving, plucking or waxing laser/IPL is the way forward. Laser/IPL is both safe and effective for all face and body areas.
WHAT IS IPL SKIN REJUVENATION?
This treatment will increase collagen levels in the skin making it firmer, plumper with an increased youth radiance. It gives a totally natural look to the skin as it works with the skin's own ability to regenerate itself. There is no downtime and it can be easily slotted into a busy day or lunch hour. Highly recommended.
LASER/IPL FACIAL REDNESS, BROKEN CAPILLARIES & ROSACEA
This treatment will quickly and easily tone down high facial redness reducing broken veins and capillaries. It will enable clients to feel less embarrassed and self conscious by being able to wear less makeup to cover.
IPL PIGMENTATION, SUN DAMAGE & ACNE SCARRING
This can be safely and effectively used to reduce the annoying appearance of pigmentation and scarring.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
IPL treatments use safe, controlled pulses of filtered light to remove unwanted hair.
These pulses of filtered light are absorbed by melanin, the pigment found in hair. This absorption process heats the hair, damaging the follicle, along with its ability to regenerate.
Hundreds of hair follicles are damaged with each pulse, making IPL an easy and effective way to treat unwanted hair.
Your hair type will be determined at your initial consultation and a patch test will be performed using the IPL settings that best suit your individual needs.
The hair in the treatment area will be trimmed and a cooling gel applied, ensuring that the light absorption is optimised, to give maximum results.
Treated hairs will push through and fall out naturally over a period of one to three weeks leaving your skin feeling smooth and looking great. Treatment needs to be regular 4 weeks apart due to the growth cycles and stages that all hair goes through.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
This will vary from person to person and depends on many factors. A difference will be noticed after the first session and continued sessions over the following months will target and destroy the hair follicles. A person will need anything between 3-10 sessions, with 5/6 sessions being the average for hair clearance.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
Prices will vary according to the area and size to be treated eg the upper lip is £42 per session, chin £50 and larger areas like b/line £100 & underarms £75.
Excellent laser results - Rhian
I called in to Coolight to see Helen as I had some very bad scarring on my chin from electrolysis in another salon. She recommended laser and despite being really nervous and totally out of my depth having it done, Helen had the patience of a saint and was very reassuring. Eight sessions later not only have the dark hairs stopped growing but the scars have disappeared! If only I had found Helen sooner, I would have saved a lot of time and money. Laser at Helen’s was definitely the way forward for me. She’s very professional and understanding.
ELECTROLYSIS HAIR REMOVAL
WHAT IS ELECTROLYSIS HAIR REMOVAL?
ELECTROLYSIS is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body.
Coollights medical electrolysis device uses heat at the end of a fine needle to destroy the growth centre of the hair. This very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle
and the hair is removed with tweezers.
Electrolysis is ideal for random facial hairs that have no pigment eg white or blond hairs as these are generally difficult to treat with Laser/IPL Hair Removal.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LASER/IPL & ELECTROLYSIS HAIR REMOVAL?
LASER/IPL HAIR REMOVAL
Laser/IPL Hair Removal is better for larger areas eg full face & body
Laser/IPL hair removal works well on dark hairs & pale skin
Laser/IPL hair removal areas need to be covered from the sun & high protection sunscreen used on the treated areas.
Laser/IPL hair removal is not successful on blond white or grey hair
Hair does not need to be long and needs to be short prior to treatment.
Laser/IPL hair removal is ideal for clients that shave as they can carry on shaving before & after sessions
Prices are based on the size of the area to be treated.
Treated hairs will push through and fall out after 1-3 weeks
After a Laser/IPL session the area settles down really quickly & you can often resume your daily activities.
ELECTROLYSIS HAIR REMOVAL
Electrolysis can be perfomed on any hair colour or tanned skin
Treatments deal with smaller areas as individual hairs are treated within a time segment
Hairs need a little length to extract with tweezers
Electrolysis is better suited to small areas eg a few random hairs.
Prices are based on time eg 10/15/20 mins
Hairs are removed during the session.
May be some redness after an electrolysis session. This redness will lessen as the skin becomes more accustomed to the treatment.
