Every year in the UK we spend around £25 million on hair removal products like razors & waxing which offer a short term solution to a long term problem. Unwanted hair growth is a personal issue for men & women alike. DestinationSkin have experience of treating all skin types & ethnicities with excessive hair growth so you know that you are in safe hands. We also specialise in facial laser hair removal which is a safe treatment to permanently reduce facial hair on the upper lip, chin, side burns, eyebrow area or hairline.

Understanding hair growthPlusMinus

All body & facial hair goes through 3 distinct phases of growth; Anagen, Catagen & Telogen. At any time, 85% of your hair is in the anagen phase (active growth) which is when you get best results from a laser hair removal treatment. This is because the follicle (dermal papilla) is closest to the skins surface. The laser beam targets the follicle, heats it & destroys the hair.

 

 

How many treatments will I need?PlusMinus

Multiple treatments are needed (between 6-18) because only hair in the active growth phase, or “anagen” phase can be affected by the laser. Time is needed for hairs in the Catagen & Telogen phases to move into the Anagen face. Effective results require treatments spread evenly. We recommend once every 4 weeks to remove facial hair and every 6-8 weeks to remove body hair.

We use the Fitzpatrick scale as a method of testing skin types to understand how your skin reacts to light and to help us identify the best methods of treatment.

Our practitioners have extensive knowledge in using this dermatologically tested scale to identify and treat skin types and we are able to offer both laser hair removal and skin treatments for skin types I-VI .

  •  Type I Pale white; blonde or red hair; blue eyes; freckles — always burns, never tans
  • Type II White; fair; blonde or red hair; blue, green or hazel eyes — usually burns, tans minimally
  • Type III Cream white; fair with any hair or eye colour; quite common — sometimes mild burn, tans uniformly
  • Type IV Moderate brown; typical Mediterranean skin tone — rarely burns, always tans well
  • Type V Dark brown; Middle Eastern skin types — very rarely burns, tans very easily
  • Type VI Deeply pigmented dark brown to black — never burns, tans very easily

Our practitioners have treated thousands of clients with skin types V-VI. We use the latest technology in ND:Yag lasers to offer the only FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved method of hair removal for skin types V-VI, so you can be sure that you’re in safe hands

Is laser hair removal right for me?PlusMinus

We have invested in the safest & most effective lasers to allow us to treat all skin types & ethnicities. The Cynosure Elite+ lasers utilise different wavelengths to target the hair follicle whilst leaving the surrounding skin untouched. Laser treatment is most effective on darker hair as it is best absorbed when there’s more pigment. Our Cynosure Elite+ lasers mean we get good results even if you have darker skin or very light hair where other lasers wouldn’t work.

We have invested in the most advanced lasers meaning that we can treat all skin types for laser hair removal.

What lasers do you use?PlusMinus

At DestinationSkin, we use 3 different makes and models dependant on your skin and hair type. These models are

  • The Lumenis Lightsheer Diode (810nm)
  • The Cynosure Alexandrite (755nm)
  • The Cynosure ND YAG (1064nm)

In your consultation, a hair assessment will be carried out to determine which laser will be best for your treatment to achieve the desired results safely, and effectively.
