LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Imagine a life free of unwanted hair. No more waxing, shaving or plucking! PAIN-FREE laser hair removal makes this dream a reality. Imagine the time and money you will save no longer having to wax, shave or pluck over and over again.
Wandsworth Village Skincare offer a range of laser treatments including the revolutionary Harmony XL's SHR with brand new technology that allows it to PAINLESSLY treat all skin types including Black and Asian skins.
What is SHR technology?
Most people are now aware that lasers are the 'gold standard' method of hair removal but the most common patient complaint has been the pain of the procedure. Not anymore! This really is pain-free.
The HarmonyXL SHR handpiece emits broad-spectrum light. The energy travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis until it strikes the hair follicle, which contains a dense, melanin-rich hair shaft and bulb.
The dark-colored melanin absorbs the light and rises slowly in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. Because the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside the follicle area.
The result is superb hair removal without pain.
How many treatments are needed?
On average 6 to 8 treatments are needed at 4 to 6 weeks intervals. The exact number of treatments depends on several factors including hair colour, skin colour, hair density and the site of hair growth.
Can all hair colours be treated?
Lasers work best on darker hair because the pigment melanin absorbs the laser light. Fair hair can respond well, but white hair, grey hair, very blond hair and some types of red hair respond poorly to lasers unless stained using a special melanin encapsulating solution.
Can all parts of the body be treated?
Using the latest laser technology we are able to treat all areas of the body quickly, safely and effectively.

Is the treatment permanent?
The permanence of laser hair removal is often questioned. In practice no single laser system destroys all hair follicles. Some follicles are destroyed, others are miniaturized and some enter a prolonged resting phase. It is possible that with a sufficient number of treatments, true permanent hair removal can be achieved. Women with hormonal imbalance or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome may need to repeat the treatment regularly and even if there was no abnormality before, around the menopause some women might get an increase in production of new hair.
Can all skin types and tones be treated?
YES! SHR (Super Hair Removal) technology is safe for treating all skin types including black skin. Patch tests will be performed prior to treatment to exclude the risk of hypo pigmentation (bleaching effect) of the skin.
How to prepare for the hair removal treatment?
In order to remove the hair, they need to be there in the first place, so if you have been waxing so far, you need to wait 4 weeks for the hair to start growing back. You can shave as often as you want prior to the treatment. You will need to shave the area closely on the day of (or day before) the treatment.
Another part of good preparation for the treatment is staying away from the sun/tanning/self-tanning lotions for 2 weeks prior the treatment.
