Hair Removal | Halley Medical Aesthetics




Hair be gone! We can get rid of the fuzz on your underarms, forearms, legs, *ahem* areas below the belt, and other areas with laser and dynamic pulsed light (DPL) technology. We give you two hair-removal options because everyone has different needs:

  1. Halley's Intense Light Hair Removal
  2. Laser Hair Removal

Halley's Intense Light Hair Removal
For this, our therapist uses intense pulsed light (IPL)-a broad spectrum lightsource-technology to remove and minimise growth of unwanted hair. The IPL travels through the skin until it strikes the hair shafts or the root of the hair. As the light is converted to heat energy, the root and most of the hair shaft are destroyed. The intense heat also destroys the hair-producing papilla, which is a large structure at the base of the hair follicle.

It is a fuss-free, gentle process that effectively limits hair regrowth over time. Only follicles that are 'active' (at a growth phase) during treatment can be affected and destroyed by the treatment.

Recommend maintenance visits: Every one to two months.

Laser Hair Removal
This is a doctor-only treatment where our doctor will use the Long Pulsed Nd:Yag Laser to remove unwanted hair by using pulses of laser light to destroy the hair follicle. This allows for a precise and effective method of removing individual hair. Majority of the hairs are therefore taken care of permanently while regrowth is finer and lighter than previously.

Recommend maintenance visits: Every two months.
