The Polaris Laser emits an intense beam of light which passes safely through the upper skin layers to the underlying strata. Hair follicles are then eliminated by a process known as selective photothermolysis, which treats the problem without harming the skin.
Is the process safe?
This process is completely harmless and totally safe when administered by a trained operator. All our operators have successfully completed the accredited Polaris training course.
How does it feel?
Patients may experience slight discomfort during the treatment but with no long term effects. It is generally accepted however, that Laser hair removal is more comfortable than waxing or electrolysis and has a far superior recovery rate.
How many treatments are needed?
Due to the natural growth cycle of each hair follicle, several treatments may be required to achieve optimal results. Each hair follicle goes through growing and resting phases, but hair is most sensitive to laser treatment whilst in the growing (anagan) phase. In most patients successful removal can be achieved following a short course of treatments.
