We provide 3 methods of Hair Removal each distinctly different in results and procedure. Waxing is an ancient method modernised with technique and wax used. This method is a short term removal with growth appearing around 3-4 weeks after treatment.
Electrolysis has been around for more than 100 years and was invented in 1875 by a Charles E. Michel M.D to permanently remove in-grown eyelashes from the eye area. The procedure evolved in 1916 to become a practical method for eradicating excessive hair growth from the face and body, since then the treatment has changed significantly to improve the safety and efficiency.
Laser Hair Reduction was first invented in 1960 but became commercially available in 1996. Lasers have evolved to become safer, treat all skin types Fitzpatrick 1-V1 and become more permanent than in the earlier days. Laser is the most sought after method for Hair removal today than any other method available today.

How many treatments do I need?
Results vary between individuals depending on skin colour, hair colour, area, hormones and hair thickness. From studies, most people have a great reduction after 6 treatments. Depending on area, top up treatments are recomended and can vary between 3 months and a year.
Is Laser Painful?
Most people tolerate the sensation as the laser beam passes over the skin. The sensation has been reported as equivalent to an elastic band flicking the skin with some heat.
Why do I need to shave before the treatment?
In order for the laser to succesfully absorb down the hair follicle, the hair on the treatment area must be shaved prior to the treatment or have less than 1.5mm of regrowth. Shaving should be done 24-48 hours prior to treatment for the best results.
Our technicians are trained in Thermolysis, Blend and Galvanic Electrolysis
Electrolysis hair removal is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. It is defined as the permanent removal of hair due to the precise application of heat, applied to the follicles of each individual hair via a concentrated electrical current.
It requires multiple sessions to achieve best possible results, but permanent hair removal isn't 100% guaranteed for everyone. As electrolysis t does not target hair pigment (color) like laser, but attacks the follicle itself, individuals that are poor candidates for laser hair reduction, such as those with Grey, White, Blond and Red hair, can achieve the same results as individuals with darker hair and can successfully be treated on any part of the body including Eyebrows.
How does it work?
An electric current is applied with a very fine needle-shaped electrode, or metal probe into each hair follicle to destroy the root. There are three types of electrolysis: galvanic, thermolysis and blend. Hair grows in different stages: growing, resting and shedding. Because all of the hair isn't on the same stage at any given time, multiple sessions are needed to get the hair in the growth phase for electrolysis hair removal to be most effective- just like laser hair removal.
How much does it cost?
Treatments are determined by minutes per session, from 5 minutes - 2 hours depending on the area and amount of hair. Frequent treatments weekly to fortnightly are recomended at the beginning.
We use quality strip wax and hot wax products for the most comfortable experience
How many sessions do I need?
Waxing is a continuous treatment, recommended every 4 weeks depending on area and rate of hair growth.
Is waxing painful?
Waxing can be uncomfortable to begin with. Clients refer to waxing as a mild sting that resolves immediately once the hair is removed.
Can I resume normal activity?
We recommend not to use pools & spa's in common areas for 24 hours afterwards. Avoid hot showers & baths until skin redness resides completely.
