Hair removal is a treatment that we’ve seen increase in popularity in recent years. Due to the growing effectiveness treatments, both men and women alike are booking procedures to get rid of unwanted or unsightly hair.

But how does hair removal work? We thought we’d dive deep into the process in this blog post. Let’s dig in.

Laser & Intense Pulsed Light

In-clinic hair removal usually involves using a form of light to remove unwanted hair. One approach is a “laser-based treatment”. Traditionally, this uses one specific wavelength of light, which can make it difficult to control and produce optimal results depending on the patient’s skin and hair colour.
