Excessive or unsightly body hair can be upsetting for both men and women and can be caused by hormonal conditions, age, or sometimes is hereditary. Many of the tried and tested methods of hair removal such as waxing, shaving, threading and electrolysis are only temporary, with the only medically proven treatment for the removal of unwanted facial and body hair with long lasting results is IPL (intense pulsed light) or Laser hair removal.
Here at Figura, we proudly make use of the LightSheer Quattro, which is the newest addition to the premium Lumenis LightSheer family, positioning it ahead of the market as a flagship solution in the diode laser hair removal industry. The system offers clinically proven laser hair removal solution for all skin types and is used by Physicians around the world. The unique technology of the LightSheer Quattro effectively targets the melanin in the root of the hair, causing permanent destruction of the follicle without damaging the epidermal layers, delivering a safe, non-invasive, but more importantly – an effective treatment permanently reducing hair growth, resulting in smooth, beautiful skin and no painful in-growing hairs!
Work with our expert team to plan your step-by-step solution to unwanted hair.
Am I suitable for Permanent Hair Reduction?
Most people are suitable for Laser or IPL treatment. The unique technology of our equipment enables us to provide a customised treatment according to your hair colour, texture and the location of body hair. Any hair with at least some pigment in it can be treated effectively – dark hairs are quicker and easier to treat due to the high melanin content. Fair hair contains less melanin so may take longer and grey or white hair has no melanin and therefore is unsuitable. Your suitability and effectiveness of the treatment will be discussed in depth at your FREE consultation.
How does the treatment feel?
The LightSheer Quattro HS handpiece offers a unique pain reduction mechanism by using vacuum assist technology – the HS handpiece is used for treating larger body areas quickly and comfortably. The XC handpiece which is used for treating smaller areas or areas requiring a higher fluence incorporates ChillTip Integrated Contact Cooling Technology ensuring that the continuous sapphire cooling significantly increases comfort. Each pulse might feel like a slight tingle or pinch, so some areas of the face and body may be more sensitive to the sensation than others!
What happens after treatment?
You may have some redness or swelling immediately after treatment (feeling a bit like sunburn) but this will subside quickly. You will be provided with post-treatment advice to follow to avoid any possible side effects.
We are all individuals and as such, the number of treatments and the results from treatments will vary from person to person. Similarly, due to the varying response of the individual, the down-time, recovery and the longer term results achieved following the treatment will differ from person to person. The information we provide you with is based on the extensive experience we have gained from treating a wide range of clients of differing age and gender.
