A.P.L Laser Treatment - Now works on blonde and grey hair
What is APL permanent hair removal?
APL is short for Accumulated Pulse Light and is possibly the most effective treatment currently available for the permanent removal of unwanted hair. It is one of the safest systems to use and causes clients less discomfort than the older laser hair removal systems. It works by focusing a controlled and filtered pulse of light to the base of unwanted hair, thus destroying the follicles and causing the hair to stop growing and fall out naturally - unlike older laser systems that vaporise the entire hair.
APL hair removal is safe and 100% free from U.V. light. It offers a proven long-term solution to ridding yourself of unwanted hair. The treatment is suitable for both men and women. Treatment can be carried out on almost any area of your face or body leaving you with smooth skin and no unsightly stubble-rash, dark re-growth or unsightly and painful ingrown hairs and our latest machines even work on blonde and grey hair.
How does APL work?
Hair grows in cycles that last several months. Only hairs in a certain part of the growth cycle can be destroyed, so multiple treatments are needed to remove all unwanted hair. Everyone is different when it comes to the number of treatments required, typically 4 to 6 treatments remove all unwanted hair. In some cases up to 8 sessions may be necessary. Treatments are ideally carried out every 4 weeks in order to catch the optimum number of hairs in the growth phase.
Over a person's life time, hormonal changes will cause new hair to begin to grow so it may be necessary to have an occasional maintenance treatment to be free from these new random hairs.
Your therapist carries out the treatment at the clinic. By the time you arrive you will have already had a consultation to discuss the treatment and you will have made preparations before your visit. The main thing to remember is the area to be treated should be cleanly shaven and not be tanned.
A cold gel will be applied to the area to be treated and glasses are worn by the client to protect the eyes from the burst of bright light. The therapist will apply the treatment via an applicator head which is pushed gently against the skin. The treatment is non-intrusive and relatively pain free. As the pulse of light is delivered to skin, a feeling like an elastic band pinging against the skin is felt.
Your treatment will last between a few minutes and an hour depending on the size of the area to be treated. Post treatment, you will apply a moisturising cream to your skin and should avoid the skin being exposed to the sun.
APL has a positive effect on the skin as it stimulates collagen production and evens out the tone of sun damaged skin. Often after hair removal treatment skin looks and feels improved, there is a notable increase in the fullness of the skin and the appearance of Acne, scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles is improved. Treatment on skin where Psoriasis, Eczema or any other dermatological conditions are present should be avoided. Individual raised moles should not be treated; your therapist will apply a suitable cover to these at the time of treatment.
Once the course of treatment is complete, you will enjoy a smooth and hair-free body or face. No longer will you be burdened with the regime of shaving , waxing or plucking: say goodbye to stubble rash and ingrown hairs for good! Find a new confidence and be happy with the skin you're in.
