Guys, laser hair removal is not something you think of doing on one of your days off and it is not a treatment that you have the once or twice and your then end up as smooth as the day you were born.
Our interest is the same as yours, we both want something that is effective, that will work for your hair and skin type and is not a waste of your hard-earned cash.
Laser requires a series of treatments over a period, usually 4 to 7 weeks apart, to accommodate the difference in hair growth stages. Factors such as your hair type, skin type, the area treated and of course, any medications or supplements that you may be taking all will influence your success.
The amount of pigment, or melanin, in hair determines its colour and therefore its effectiveness to treatment. The LinScan Hair Removal laser uses a wavelength of 808nm, which, when applied to the treatment area, turns to thermal energy (heat) and absorbed by the melanin. The applied light is absorbed by the melanin, the temperature in the root rises and the hair can no longer grow..
Lasers can only target hair of colour and therefore gray, white, some blonde hair and ginger hair will not respond. The LinScan Hair Removal Laser is effective in removing hair from dark-skin patients with the integrated sapphire contact cooling hand-piece protecting the surrounding skin.
Contacting The Body Barber
Be warned !! If you send a text "can I have a wax?", my answer will most likely be "I don't know, ask your mum" ... think about it! I need as much information as possible otherwise we'll spend hours playing text tennis.
If you call and I don't answer, I'm busy devoting my expertise to a client and so don't interrupt their service which, if you're here as a client, you would appreciate.
Last thing, I DO book out several days in advance !
