We give every client a detailed consultation to give full understanding of permanent hair removal by electrolysis. With our clients’ safety in mind we always use a new needle for every treatment.
Red Vein Removal
This is technically known as Telangiectasia which involves advanced electrolysis to cauterize broken capillaries. Our therapists are highly qualified and maintain the highest standards of hygiene and safety. First treatment includes a full consultation and patch test.
Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags, which are often caused by friction from clothes, are removed by using a different technique of advanced electrolysis. A very quick and effective method again with hygiene and safety in mind. Consultations are always necessary.
IPL – Permanent Hair Removal
Beautyworks uses the ECOLITE hair removal system (Intense Pulsed light) which produces a high intensity flash of filtered light, the energy of this light is absorbed by the pigment of the hair. The hair conducts the light and turns it into heat which destroys the surrounding cells making them incapable of producing further hair growth. Dark hairs are most easily treated due to the high concentration of pigment. Most authorities would agree that using current laser and IPL technology, it is possible to permanently remove hair up to 85- 90%. For most clients 6 to 9 treatments are sufficient to permanently reduce an area of hair up to 85%. After the 1st treatment most clients get a significant reduction in hair density as the new hairs tend to become finer. Usually a minimum of 6 treatments is advised.
How To Prepare For Treatment
Ideally hairs should be 1mm to 2mm long on the day of treatment, so we advise shaving if necessary prior to treatment. Avoid waxing plucking and bleaching prior to treatment. Clients should avoid tanning 1 month prior to the treatment. Immediately after each treatment session the skin is particularily sensitive to UV light and strong sunlight should be avoided for 4-5 days. ECOLITE is non invasive and side effects are minimal, the skin may become red/pink like sun exposure and most clients experience no side effects. Any skin reactions should disappear within a few days or even hours. Full aftercare will be advised with a free no obligation consultation and patch test.
IPL - Aesthetic Treatments
The ECOLITE IPL system can also be used to treat PIGMENTATION and THREAD/RED VEINS. IPL can also be used for an Anti-Ageing treatment called PHOTOREJUVENATION that stimulates collagen production. Book a free consultation for further information with our laser specialists.
