Our Laser Hair Treatments are safe for all Fitzpatrick Skin Types.
Don’t know what a Fitzpatrick skin type is? Many laser treatments are restricted by skin tone, and some laser procedures can’t be done on certain skin tones or summer tanned skin, our laser can effectively and safely treat unwanted body hair on all skin colours. See below to view details of the Fitzpatrick scale.
How does it Work?
This light-based technology emits gentle pulses of energy into the skin to target and heat hair follicles responsible for growth. The follicle absorbs the energy and is destroyed, unable to produce hair again. As hair growth occurs in resting and growing cycles, more than 1 treatment will be necessary. For full reduction of unwanted body hair, usually 6-8 treatments will be needed.

Length of Procedure?

Minimal, some describe it as similar to a rubber band snapping.
Results: Your hair naturally grows in three separate cycles and permanent reduction occurs only when an active growth cycle is targeted during the laser hair reduction treatment. As a result, patients typically require six or more treatments to enjoy lasting results. Expect to see a gradual decrease in the hair thickness and in the amount of hair present in the area.
Lasts: Expect to see a gradual decrease in the hair thickness and in the amount of hair present in the area. Hormone change such as those that occur during pregnancy or menopause may cause some slight hair regrowth (although the texture will be finer and there will be less hair) this can be addressed by a touch up treatment or two.

The Fitzpatrick scale is a skin typing test developed to estimate the response of different skin types to the sun.
In aesthetics, it is used to help us determine your response to certain procedures, such as laser rejuvenation therapy and medical grade peels. Some skin types do not respond well to some types of laser procedures.
Please discuss your skin type and the best treatments for your goals with one of our skin care experts. Below you will see an example of each Fitzpatrick skin type 1-6.
