What machine is used?
The Aphrodite Laser Machine. This laser system delivers superior cooling, using the ice wand that keeps the surface of skin cool while your active hair follicles are destroyed. All ages can safely tolerate procedure.
How does it work?
The Aphrodite Laser Machine use pulses of infrared diode laser energy to gradually heat the hair follicles in the subdermal layer of skin until eventually, the hair can no longer grow back. A water-soluble gel will be applied to the skin to aid the laser’s ability to glide smoothly. The laser wand/applicator is placed in contact with the skin and the laser light is passed as the head is moved across the skin for superior hair removal.
What does it feel like?
Contrary to other lasers of the past which were very difficult to tolerate, The Aphrodite Laser Systems is PAIN FREE. Cool tip wand ensures the surface of your skin remains cool throughout your treatment.
Who is a candidate for laser hair removal?
Those with light skin and dark hair have the best chances at success (the laser light picks up on the colour contrast in order to zap follicles), however improvements in laser technology now allow for safe and effective treatments on ALL skin types. Safe and effective for all ages.
Can I wax before my treatment?
In the weeks leading up to your first treatment, nix all forms of hair removal that require pulling out the root, including waxing, tweezing and epilating. Switch to razors about four to six weeks in advance – we require that you shave the area before treatment.
