Permanent Hair Removal

Permanent Hair Removal Service in Singapore

If you have a hairy armpit situation and you want to flaunt your athletic arms wearing sleeveless clothes or you want to wear trendy short skirts to show off your long legs, you could look to us for hair removal services. In addition, removing unwanted hair can also give you greater confidence if you want to swim in your favorite swim wear.

Making use of ELOS, an advanced technology that emits a beam of light which transfers into heat. This is absorbed by the hair follicle, burning the hair papilla so that future hair stops growing. ELOS (Electro-Optical-Synergy) system is revolutionary in that it can be used on all skin types and hair colours. In fact it is currently the fastest and most effective hair removal laser system. It is an ideal way of removing hair because the results are very good even over long spans of time. The treatment takes just 5 minutes for smaller parts like Upper Lip to 15 minutes for Bikini Line and about half an hour for full leg. The side effects are minimal. These include transient redness that disappear after half an hour. 95% of customers do not experience any side effects at all.

An average of five to ten sessions are required to eradicate hair growth in most women. A consultation with our therapist will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the number of sessions required. The procedure works best when hair is at the first stage namely the anagen phase. Still, different body areas require different treatment intervals before another session of treatment is needed. After the first few sessions, you only need to come back when you are experiencing regrowth.

How does it work ?

Human hair is made up of three parts:
• The Hair Shaft
• The Follicle
• The Papilla

ELOS™ delivers a rapid burst of light energy that gets absorbed by the hair. This is the latest and most effective technique adopted by leading aestheticians worldwide. The device transmits a beam of light, which gets converted into heat energy when it comes into contact with the hair. The heat gets drawn down the hair shaft to the hair follicle, destroying the hair papilla as a result, thereby inhibiting future hair regrowth.

The sapphire contact cooling pad reduces treatment discomfort, thus making the whole procedure a pleasant experience.

Is ELOS™ hair removal permanent?

ELOS™ treatment is the closest we can get in achieving long term excellent results in hair removal.
Occasionally it is possible to see re-growth of a small amount of hair over a period of time but this is usually finer and lighter and can be treated again if necessary.

How long does the treatment take?

This depends on the area being treated; It ranges from 5 mins for smaller parts like Upper Lip or Chin, to 15mins for Bikini Line and up to 30mins for full legs.

What should I expect following the treatment?

At the end of each treatment, the treated area may show slight redness but this is transient and will disappear shortly. The hair that remains in the skin which have been damaged will gradually drop out over the following 2-3 weeks. This sometimes gives the appearance of the hair growing more quickly than normal but is really due to the hair being shed from the skin.

Are there any side effects?

Usually the treated area has a temporary redness which disappears quickly.
Occasionally, a hot spot may last for more than a couple of hours. In some cases, the treated area may be left with a temporary darker coloration which will disappear after a few weeks.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions required will vary depending on the hair color, skin color and hair thickness. The courser the hair, the darker the skin and the lighter the hair color, will often require more sessions. Typically 5-10 sessions will be sufficient to treat the average woman with fairer skin and dark hair.

However, 10-15 treatment sessions may be required for those with lighter color hair, and even up to 20 sessions for those with very tanned or darker skin. The number of treatment sessions vary, depending on factors which i have just mentioned. Some clients may require more treatments to achieve the desired results. Men will often require 10-20 treatment sessions as they have coarser hair structures.

As the treatment effectiveness depends on light energy being absorbed by the pigment of the hair, black and dark brown hair responds better than light brown and blonde hair. As white, grey, platinum-blond hair contains virtually no pigment; laser hair removal is unlikely to be effective.

Why do I need more than one treatment?

The laser can only affect hair follicles that are growing.
Hair grows in a 3-phase cycle – Anagen(growth) phase, Catagen(transitional) phase and Telogen(resting) phase. Only hair that is in the anagen phase can be successfully removed with the laser. At any one time approximately only 60-80% of the hair are in this phase.

How often will I need retreatment?

Different body areas require different intervals between retreatment. This is due to differing hair types, hormonal levels and hair growth cycles. The length of time between treatments will increase after a few treatments. After the first few sessions, you will come back for treatment only when you see approximately 30% regrowth.
