Laser Hair Removal


Laser Hair Removal Kent

At Bodilight Kent we use only the most effective Nd:YAG Laser system from Polaris. Our laser is brand new in 2016!

The lasers work by emitting a wavelength of high energy focused light, which when applied to a certain skin condition will create heat to remove unwanted hairs and can also destroy diseased cells, while leaving healthy cells unchanged.

Our Laser Hair Removal  can be used to help most skin and hair types (even those who have previously been told that it is not suitable for them).

We would usually recommend a course of 6 treatments for optimum results.

Our laser can also be used to remove spider/thread veins in the face, some vascular birthmarks or capillary malformations, varicose veins and vascular tumours in the face and around the mouth.*

*DISCLAIMER: INDIVIDUAL RESULTS MAY VARY

The Nd:Yag system is designed to remove unwanted hair through selective photothermolysis. The process involves local selective absorption of an intense light pulse at wavelengths that are absorbed by the desired targets (hair follicles) but not by the surrounding healthy tissue.
The consultation involves watching a short presentation about the treatment and then a laser operator will examine your skin and hair type for suitability. A test patch is carried out to determine the best treatment settings and to avoid over-dosing the skin. If any adverse effects are experienced on the test patch area, we may need to re-assess your treatment programme.
All of our treatments are carried out by fully qualified laser practitioners. Each operator will have passed an in-house examination on laser hair reduction and completed the Core of Knowledge training, which focuses on Health and Safety issues.
Because the laser targets pigment, the hair ideally should be dark. The laser does not work on white, grey or blonde hair and is less effective on very fine/vellus dark hair. (In these cases a course of electrolysis would be advised instead). We can treat fair, Mediterranean and Asian skin types providing the hair is darker than the surrounding skin. Any medical conditions should be discussed during your consultation.
No, because hair grows in different cycles. Only the hair in the growing stage (anagen stage) is in the hair follicle and it is only hair in the anagen stage that causes damage to the hair follicle. Most people will need a course of approximately 6 sessions. Follicles that have been permanently damaged will not produce any more hair.
After a treatment the treated hairs take about 2 weeks to shed from the skin. Re-growth then usually occurs at about 4 weeks later, so we recommend that each treatment is approximately 6 weeks apart. This may vary depending on the treatment area.
The Nd:YAG System can treat many hairs at a time. A bikini line can take as little as 10 minutes and a top lip less than a minute. Larger areas such as full legs or back and shoulders can take up to 1 hour per session.
As treatment settings vary according to individual skin and hair types, so do the levels of discomforts. Most people can tolerate the sensation. At Bodilight we can provide the option of a topical anaesthetic. This will be discussed during your initial consultation.
You cannot remove hair from the follicle between treatments (e.g. waxing, plucking, threading etc). Shaving and / or trimming is allowed.
Immediate redness and some swelling to the skin are short term side effects following each treatment and this usually settles within a few hours. It is possible for there to be a fine superficial brown scale or gravel rash to the skin and this can take anything from a few days to a couple of weeks before completely disappearing.

Less common side effects are:
• Hypopigmentation – (whitening of skin). This is rare and may take several months to fade.
• Hyperpigmentation – (darkening of the skin), which can take several months to a year or more to disappear.
• Mottling – (capillary matting) can occur in fair skin types where very high powers may be necessary and the effects may be long lasting.

Do your best to minimise sun exposure to the area being treated, recent sun exposure can put your skin at risk. If we have to postpone your treatment due to recent sun exposure hair reduction may be less effective. Sun exposure includes sun beds and self-tanning creams should be avoided throughout your treatment course.

Do not apply aggravating creams to the skin before or during the course of treatment, this includes glycolic acid (Aha creams) and Retin-A cream. Also be sure to tell us if you have been taking any tablets for acne such as Roaccutane, for any period in the year before treatment.

The treatment is approved by the FDA, who has deemed it safe. The light produced by the laser is in the infra-red end of the light spectrum as opposed to the UV end. This type of light is non-carcinogenic. Lasers have been used in the medical profession for over 20 years and no long-term side effects have been reported.
• Avoid perfume, body lotions, after-shave, make-up and deodorant. You may use Tea-tree deodorant which is free from alcohol, perfume and aluminium. This can be purchased in the clinic.
• Avoid heat treatments such as hot baths or showers, saunas, steam rooms and Jacuzzis.
• Use an aftercare product such as Tea-tree hand and body lotion or aloe vera gel which can be purchased at the clinic.
• Avoid restrictive clothing or excess friction on the area.
• Avoid cardiovascular exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation
• Avoid facial and body treatments until the skin has returned to normal.
• Do not apply ice-packs as this can shock and traumatize the skin.
• Notify the clinic of any change in medical conditions, medication or pregnancy.
• Do not hesitate to call us if you have any adverse reactions

Laser hair removal - Full legs, underarms

After many years of having to shave my legs practically every day, I found out about laser treatment at Bodilight. I can honestly say it has been the most fantastic thing ever. My legs are now always smooth and it was worth every penny. I'm now in the process of having other areas treated, so that I never have to shave any where ever again!
