Posted on: August 11th, 2012 by webster No Comments

Unwanted hair can be a big problem for those of us suffering with it. It could even affect the way we feel about ourselves. Bedford Skin Clinic can help. We offer a state of the art Candela laser (Gentlelase/Yag) machine that can treat all skin types. Our team is led by a qualified Doctor and the therapists are extensively trained and experienced.

Treatment Approaches

Laser hair removal is a rapid, safe and gentle way of removing unwanted hair, and is medically proven to give you permanent hair reduction after the treatment is complete. Traditionally, hair removal techniques such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary relief and may actually stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis, while effective and ideal for white, grey and blonde hairs, often requires years of ongoing and frequently painful treatments. All of these methods may result in scarring, allergic reactions, and ingrown hairs.

How does laser treatment lead to permanent hair reduction?

The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis. It means that Lasers cause localised damage by selectively heating melanin and the hair follicle while not heating the rest of the skin. This leads to permanent hair reduction once the course of treatment is completed.

Laser Technology

Lasers have been used for hair removal since 1995. Unfortunately, there is no single laser or light system that is obviously better than any other – each system has its strengths and weaknesses.

Some systems are fast, effective but can only be used on light skin – other systems can treat dark skin. Only by offering all of the options can the best system be chosen for your individual hair and skin.

We operate 2 different laser hair removal systems. At Bedford Skin Clinic We will recommend what is best for you.
