Treatments are dependent on the individual and medical background and hormonal changes in the body.

Usually a woman’s face will require more sessions than body. Women are predisposed to grow new hair on the face as they age.  Hormones, menopause and medications all increase growth.

Areas such as legs, bikini and underarms are generally 90% successful because women are predisposed to lose hair as they age. However top up maintenance sessions may be required.

Laser hair removal is extremely fast with large areas treated in a matter of minutes. Treatments are also relatively comfortable thanks to Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device. This inbuilt device delivers a spay of super-cooled gas directly onto the skin as the laser fires ensuring that treatments are very tolerable and certainly less painful than waxing.

Laser vs. IPL


DIFFERENCE BETWEEN IPL & LASER

IPL/VPL ( Intense Pulse Light/Varied Pulse Light)
IPLs/VPLs are technically not lasers; instead they use xenon flash lamps and work by emitting a variety of light wavelengths. The broad spectrum light passes over the whole treatment area, in comparison to an actual laser where the energy is far more concentrated. Because the wavelengths are dispersed at a variety of depths only some of these are effective for hair removal.

IPLS ARE NOT TRUE LASER HAIR REMOVERS
Treatment performed using an IPL is not as effective for hair removal. Laser uses just one wavelength to target hair follicles. Therefore laser energy is far more focused than an IPL. The treatment settings with our laser machine is more accurate and precise so we can individualise treatments for each client according to your skin type.

When IPL is used for hair removal there is also a greater risk of causing damage to the skin, such as changes to skin pigmentation or burning.

In New Zealand there are a lot of IPL machines because as a general rule of thumb IPL machines are cheaper devices. It is our belief, which has been backed up by feedback from our clients, when it comes to getting the best best results for removing unwanted hair medical-grade laser technology is the most effective method.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL WILL ALWAYS DELIVER BETTER RESULTS
We are a specialist non-surgical clinic and our mission is to offer the most effective technology at the best prices.

We offer Candela elos™ Plus & GentleMax Pro which are FDA approved medical-grade laser technology and widely considered the world's most advance hair removal treatment. By delivering an ultra-focused, concentrated beam of light precisely to the hair follicle, the laser damages the follicle and inhibits regrowth, resulting in fast, effective permanent hair reduction.

Pre and Post Care


Pre-Treatment care

  • No self-tanning of the skin before, immediately after, or between treatments. Tanned skin may absorb a portion of the energy that should be striking the hair follicle and can adversely affect the results of the treatment and damage the skin.
  • No sun tanning for 4 weeks before treatment.
  • Moisturise daily the areas that are being treated since dry skin may be more sensitive.
  • Avoid any products on the day of treatment to the areas to be treated.
  • Hair must be shaved in the treatment area 12–24 hours prior to any hair removal procedure.
  • No waxing, tweezing or electrolysis treatments on areas to be treated.
  • Do not take Roaccutane/Isotane/Oratane.
  • If you start a course of antibiotics, you cannot have a laser treatment while on the antibiotics and for a week afterwards.

Post-Treatment care

  • No tanning of the skin for 48 hours after treatment.
  • No exercising or working out for a minimum of 12 hours (if area is still red after 12 hours, wait until all redness has subsided).
  • No saunas, hot yoga or hot showers for a minimum of 12 hours (if area is still red after 12 hours, wait until all redness has subsided).
  • Avoid any other activity that will cause sweating for at least 12 hours.
  • Moisturise treated skin and wear mineral or cosmeceutical grade sun block with at least SPF 30.
  • No waxing, tweezing, or electrolysis on treated area. You may shave or clip hair.
  • Anywhere from 5–14 days after treatment, shedding of the surface hair may occur and this appears as new hair growth. This is NOT new hair growth.
  • Keep regularly scheduled appointments to achieve maximum results.

Possible Side Effects

  • Slight reddening of the skin.
  • Local swelling which goes away within a few days, including follicular oedema.
  • Blistering in rare cases.
  • During the healing processing, skin may become either darker (hyperpigmented) or lighter (hypopigmented). This is usually temporary. DO NOT rub it but allow it to exfoliate naturally.

You will be guided by your laser technician in choosing products to assist in the healing process. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have regarding the procedure.

What to expect


TREATMENT PROCESS

Step 1:  Treatment area shaved and the skin is wiped clean.

Step 2: The handpiece is applied to the skin in a “stamping” motion, emitting quick laser and coolant spray pulses to the desired treatment area.

Step 3: Coolant spray is wiped off, soothing cream is applied.

You're all done!

 

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Laser hair removal results in permanent reduction of unwanted face and body hair. Both men and women who regularly wax or shave will benefit immensely from this procedure. All areas of the face and body can be treated, except the underside of the eyebrow.

Laser hair reduction works by thermally damaging hair follicles so that they are no longer able to grow hair. A laser produces a single wavelength of light which is able to penetrate the skin. The laser light is absorbed into the hair shaft and rapidly heats and damages both the follicle and the vessel that provides the follicle with oxygen and nutrients.

 

HAIR GROWTH CYCLE

In order to understand laser hair removal you need to understand the hair growth cycle.

The hair growth cycle has three distinct stages:
Anagen: active growth phase
Catagen: regressive phase
Telegen: resting phase

It is ONLY during the ANAGEN active growth phase where the laser permanently disables hair growth. Over a course of 8 treatments at the correct intervals, we can target that phase of growth.

The cycle for every area is different:
Facial: 4 weeks
Body: 6 weeks

The cycle for each hair is not sychronised which is why its important to have multiple treatments and at the correct time for optimal results. E.g. Every 4 weeks for facial, every 6 weeks for body.

 

IS IT PERMANENT?

On average, Laser Hair Removal treatments offer a 70% to 90% permanent reduction of hair in the treated areas.

The reduction you receive is permanent, but it is impossible to achieve 100% removal of every single follicle in a given area. Over the course of treatment your hair and the amount of it that you have will change dramatically - and we mean dramatically. What starts off as rough, coarse and thick hair will eventually become soft, thin and light hair. You will have areas where the hair has completely disappeared and some areas with sporadic light hairs remain. These hairs will be picked up on your subsequent top up treatments. 

Top up treatments are recommended to keep these finer hairs away and are typically needed once or twice a year.

 

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?

 This is all down to the individual. Below is an average amount of sessions of someone who has pale skin, dark hair that is dense, has no underlying medical issues and attends for their sessions and top up sessions at the time frame given to them. 

- Face 6-12 Sessions (Hormonal and most difficult areas to treat, due to hair being finer and more follicles being present) 

- Bikini and Underarm: 6-10 Sessions (Labia is one of the most difficult areas here, due to skin colour being darker) 

- Large areas, legs/arms etc 6-10 Sessions (Knees, Upper thighs due to thick skin on knees or finer hairs on thighs) 

- Mans Back/Chest 10-12 sessions due to hair being very strong and coarse

After these sessions have been completed maintenance sessions are required, most people will need an average of 2-3 maintenance sessions a year.

 

IS IT PAINFUL?

Laser hair removal is extremely fast with large areas treated in a matter of minutes. Treatments are also relatively comfortable thanks to Candela’s patented Dynamic Cooling Device. This inbuilt device delivers a spay of super-cooled gas directly onto the skin as the laser fires ensuring that treatments are very tolerable and certainly less painful than waxing.


Many clients liken the treatment to the sensation of an elastic band snapped against the skin. We understand that pain thresholds can differ between individuals, and a topical anesthetic can be applied prior to treatment, if preferred.

IS IT EXPENSIVE?

Laser Hair Removal not only offers the fastest, most effective method for permanent hair reduction, but, over a lifetime, it is also the cheapest. Other, temporary methods of hair removal must be repeated every four to six weeks - forever. With Laser Hair Removal, most people require little to no maintenance after the initial course of treatment, saving vast quantities of time and money.

 

WHAT IF I'M PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?

We do not treat clients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to become pregnant. While Laser Hair Removal has not been proven to be damaging to pregnant or lactating mothers and their children, at GROOM, we don’t take chances with our clients’ well being. We recommend putting your treatments on hold during these periods.

WHY DO I NEED A CONSULTATION?

Laser Hair Removal is safe and effective, when used appropriately. Ensuring your well being – as well as the desired outcome – requires a thorough understanding of your concerns, expectations, skin type, hair colour, and medical history. 

A patch test is done on a small section of the different body areas you want treated which provides us with the optimal temperature for your skin. It also checks the sensitivity of the laser to your skin. We are looking for any adverse reactions in this time.

The patch test is complimentary. No self tan/perfumed products or aerosol on the skin prior to the patch test.
