HANDS DOWN, Pain-free and permanent laser hair removal at The Laser Beautique is one of the best investment you will make.

Laser hair removal isn’t one of those self-care treatments you look forward to. You’re not soaking in a salt bath, having your muscles massaged into submission, or revelling in your skin’s post-facial dewy glow. But it’s one of those self-care treatments that pays dividends in the long run. You will save plenty of time in the shower, forget about waxing appointments (which are torture), and never worry about lifting your arms to wave and last but not least, you won’t have to shave again. If you like to keep your body hair natural and ungroomed, that’s cool. But if you want to part ways with your unwanted hair painlessly, for good and never had to suffer from razor bumps, a shadow, shaving nicks, and ingrown hairs, you have come to the right place. We are going to change your life. Below is everything you should know about laser hair removal.

All you need to know about Laser Hair Removal

During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light which is filtered. This filtered light is then absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat. This heat coagulates or damages the tube-shaped sacs and the capillaries that supply the hair with oxygen and nutrients. This damage inhibits future hair growth.

At The Laser Beautique we use one of 3 revolutionary lasers. We apply an 810-nm diode laser, 1064-nm ND Yag and/or a 755- nm Alexandrite. is applied using a new technique called IN-Motion™. This is what makes this treatment pain free, unlike other laser treatments which can cause discomfort and be painful. Unlike previous generation systems, the energy from the Soprano laser is delivered via low fluence (energy), and pulses at a rapid 10 pulse per second repetition rate. The temperature of the hair follicle containing the cells responsible for hair re-growth is gradually raised to the point whereby the cells become damaged, and can no longer generate a new hair. This rise in temperature causes a deep dermal heating- a sensation that many users have compared to a soothing hot stone massage. This turns the otherwise uncomfortable process of hair removal into a very comfortable one.

This revolutionary method of delivering low-level energy via a burst of rapid pulses is what enables Pain-Free yet Extremely Effective hair removal. Less risk of side effects than has ever before been possible with other lasers. By constantly moving the hand-piece during treatment, the energy is delivered uniformly, eliminating skipped spots and ensuring patient comfort. Recovery free so you can usually return to normal activities immediately.

In layman’s terms, what makes the Soprano XL different from other painful lasers is that conventional lasers use a high peak power, and also use a pick and place method of treating – which feels like an elastic band snapping on your skin. This has been known to be very uncomfortable, especially when treating large areas or sensitive areas. At The Laser Beautique we use the Soprano’s In Motion™ technology to gradually increase the power. We like to compare it to having a hot bath, when you draw a boiling hot bath and try and get in, you will burn yourself. BUT if you gradually increase the temperature of the water you can withstand an even higher temperature without feeling any pain of discomfort.

After Care
Tanning Skin care
  • Protect your skin with sun block and avoid any sun exposure that, without protection, could lead to the development of post treatment pigmentation
  • Immediately after the session, a soothing cream/gel may be applied to calm down your skin.
  • A thermal water spray may also be refreshing.
  • Make-up, fragrance or deodorant may be applied the day after the session
Awaiting next session
  • It is important to moisturize your skin properly (Aloe Vera-based cream for instance).
  • 2-3 weeks following the session, you will experience a phenomenon similar to “re-growth” which is the actual hair shaft coming out before falling. Re-growth time needed for the remaining hair becomes longer from session to session
  • Between sessions, it is compulsory not to trim the hair “mechanically” (no tweezers, wax, electrolysis, electric epilator) since it could interfere with the hair cycle.
Only shaving and depilatory creams are allowed.

Frequently asked Questions

Who is Laser Hair Removal for?

Pain-Free laser hair removal at The Laser Beautique is for everyone. Because we use revolutionary technology and In Motion treatment technique, our treatments are safe for all skin types including Asian, ethnic and tanned. Conventional type lasers would not be suitable for darker skin types and one would not be able to have treatments in summer as sun exposure would result in pigmentation.
Laser hair removal works with the pigmentation in one’s hair. Therefore the darker, the thicker and course the hair, the better the result. White, grey, very blond, light ginger or vellus hair has very little to no pigmentation and therefore cannot be treated by any laser or light therapy. Darker ginger and blonde hair types can be treated but one may require more sessions.

Where can I have laser hair removal?

Patients seek hair removal treatments for almost any body part, from facial or bikini line treatments to legs, arms, neck or back. Woman mostly have their bikini, underarms, facial, legs and arms treated and men usually have their backs, chest, shave lines, back and front of neck area treated.

How is TLB Laser Hair Removal different?

The Laser Beautique technology breaks the mould of previous laser hair removal systems. Our system’s unique IN-Motion™ technology, along with the sweeping motion of the laser, safely and gently heats the targeted area under your skin while you stay comfortable.

Is your Laser Hair Removal really pain-free?

Most people find treatments very comfortable. While pain tolerance is subjective, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a “hot stone massage.”

Is Laser Hair Removal safe?

Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and researched applications of laser technology. The Laser Beautique’s Soprano lasers have provided permanent hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide, safely and successfully since it was cleared by the FDA in 2005.

How many treatments do I need?

There are a number of factors that can affect the success of a series of hair removal treatments, but generally, after each treatment, you’ll see a noticeable, permanent reduction in the number of hairs that regrow in the treatment area. Typically, it will require 8 – 12 treatments or more to permanently reduce the number of re-growing hairs by more than 80%, six months after the last treatment. Your laser technician will advise you.

Will my hair ever grow back?

The short answer is no. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow new hair. However, there are invariably a few hair follicles that manage to partially escape the laser during each treatment. Some of these follicles may be only stunned and will need to be retreated.

Will I need to plan time off for my treatment?

No. Laser Hair Removal at the Laser Beautique requires no “down time” or recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work or school immediately.

How do I know it won't hurt?

How do I prepare for my free consult and test patch?

If you usually wax, pluck, thread or mechanically remove hair from the root please stop at least 3 weeks before your appointment. This is because laser treatment works on pigmented hair. If you remove the hair from the root, you remove the pigment and you will not get ultimate results. Between treatments we advise our patients to shave or trim. The advantage is that one doesn’t need to grow the hair like when waxing. If you have facial hair, we advise you use a facial trimmer or facial scissor. One can get a facial Safeway trimmer for under R100 from any Clicks.

Should I shave before my treatment?

Yes. If you would like your laser technician to take before & after photos, please don’t shave before your first appointment and request a before photo. If you have taken your own before photo and you are in a hurry, please shave the area clean the night before.

Can I tan, use self-tan, sun activator or sun bed before my treatment?

No. Please do not tan, use self-tan or sunbed at least 3 weeks before or after your laser appointment

Can I use essential oils of go for a massage before my treatment?

No. Please do not use any essential oils or have a massage 24 hours before your appointment.

Can I have Laser Hair Removal if I am pregnant?

No. Hormones are the cause of hair growth. When a woman is pregnant her hormone levels can interfere with the laser treatment. We advise that pregnant woman return for laser treatments once they have had their baby.
