LASER HAIR REMOVAL INFORMATION AND FAQ'S

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?

Laser Hair Removal is the only treatment that offers permanent reduction of unwanted hair. Razors, waxing, threading and tweezing all guarantee that the hair will grow back. Statistics show as much as 95% of the hair targeted by a course of Laser Hair Treatments is permanently removed.

WHY IS LASER BETTER THAN IPL?

Lasers use the exact wavelength needed to effectively treat the hair in each pulse.
Lasers can be used for large areas and offer virtually pain free rapid results.
CALVEO will customise the laser settings to each clients’ specific skin tone and hair colour to achieve superior results.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?

Pain varies between each individual, however most of our clients feel very little to no pain or discomfort. Laser Hair Removal has been statistically proven to be less painful than waxing and electrolysis. The Lumenis laser we use has two hand pieces; the Chilltip and vacuum making it one of the most versatile and comfortable lasers available.
