Hair Removal

With 30 years experience in hair removal methods, we always advise a consultation to decide with new clients which of the following methods will be the most suitable for each individual. As we are able to offer a variety of methods, you can be assured that you will be given the best possible options for your particular needs. A small fee is chargeable for consultations and hair growth advise, which is refundable off your first treatment. Please see essential treatment section for our temporary hair removal methods.

IPL Hair Removal

Chromolite Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is the biggest innovation in hair removal method and technology for over fifty years. It offers a clinically proven, fast, safe and effective method for removing hair leaving you with smooth skin every day, so not more waxing or shaving. Suitable for facial and body areas for both men and women.

Chromolite delivers pulses of light into the skin at a specific wavelength which is selectively absorbed in the melanin pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively disables the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin tissue. Once treated the hairs will gradually slip out over the next 7 to 14 days leaving the skin smooth and hair free. 

It is important to note that IPL hair removal is effective in removing hairs which are in the growing ( Anagen) phase. Follicles in the second phase (Catagen) and third phase (Telagen) will not be affected since the dermal papilla is not yet attached to the follicle itself. As a result additional treatments will be required once the dormant hairs reach the Anagen phase. The actual number varies between individuals but our experience indicates that a minimum of six treatments are usually required. There tends to be a five to eight week interval between treatments.

Chromolite offers the latest technology in IPL hair removal. Clinical studies have proven that IPL technology is effective in permanently reducing hair growth. It is a gradual process but once the hair follicle has been treated it should not regrow. 

Treatment cost depends on the areas treated and number of treatments required . Over time compared to a lifetime of waxing treatment, Chromolite IPL hair removal can be more cost effective and certainly achieves faster and more permanent results. 

Laser or IPL hair removal are not suitable for everyone. Those with darker skin types have a higher risk of pigmentation due to the higher melanin content of the skin. You should avoid sunlight on the treated area for a period of time before and after treatment.

Electrolysis Hair Removal

This traditional method  of permanent hair removal invented over 100 years ago,  is performed by inserting a very fine, flexible needle into the follicle (the pocket where the hair sits in your skin). Your therapist then skillfully applies a tiny amount of current (heat  know as thermolysis) and destroys the lower part of the follicle, which stops any more hairs growing from that particular follicle. The hair is then removed with tweezers. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, thighs, abdomen, breasts, and legs. As with IPL repeat treatments are required due to the different stages of the hair growth cycle.
