Hair Removal

Hair removal, also known as epilation or depilation, is the deliberate removal of body hair or head hair.

Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal targets darker pigments of your hair follicles, causing the hair to fall out – with each treatment, the follicle itself becomes more impaired. After a number of laser hair treatments, the follicle is unable to grow more hair.
No hair, no razor, no worries.

Laser hair removal achieves the best results for people with fairer skin and darker hair, however our laser technology and laser preparation products allow us to treat a variety of skin and hair types. Laser hair removal is not suited to blonde, red, grey or white hair. Your technician will be able to assess your hair during a free consultation.
We ensure our client’s total satisfaction by using the medical grade Dynamic Pulsed Light (DPL) which is an effective laser for hair removal. Treatments are quick, comfortable and effective.
The DPL laser roduces a near infra light to target the pigment in the hair follicle, without damaging the surrounding skin tissue. This light then generates heat within the hair follicle to sever the connection between the follicle and its blood supply destroying hair in the active growth stage only.
No lasers can claim to have achieved 100% permanent hair removal. However, FDA Approved Medical Lasers can, in most cases, achieve permanent hair “reduction” with approximately a 70% – 90% reduction in hair growth.

These results are dependent on the individual and can be influenced by such things as skin type, hair colour, and hormones. Permanent hair reduction may not be achieved by all clients, the vast majority of these clients are females with fine facial hair or clients experiencing varying levels of hormonal activity such as puberty, pregnancy or menopause.
At Hampshire Clinic, we offer two cooling options for our clients which are designed to keep the surface of the skin cool so that maximum energy from the laser can reach its target matter. A very happy consequence of these cooling systems is that our clients find it dramatically improves their level of comfort throughout treatments, making it almost painless.

Many clients have likened the treatment to the feeling of having an elastic band flicked against the skin. Please note that all clients’ pain thresholds differ substantially.
The number of treatments can vary, dependant on the individual and can be influenced by skin type, hair colour, medications, and hormones.

Generally, a course of 8 – 10 treatments is required to achieve the most significant hair reduction results. Your beautician will make a recommendation of the number of treatments you require as part of your treatment planning session.
As hair growth is cyclical, it is recommended that a treatment is completed every 4 – 6 weeks for facial areas and every 6 – 10 weeks for body areas, until the entire course is completed. However, your beautician will monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan, if required.

We recommend clients adhere to their treatment plan, as clients who miss an appointment or leave a long period of time between treatments will not achieve optimum results.
At Hampshire Clinic, we recommend Laser Hair Removal treatments for clients over 18 years old. This is because hair growth has not fully developed due to changing hormonal levels. If you are under 18 years old, please speak with your parent or guardian about laser hair treatments prior to contacting Hampshire Clinic as they will be required to attend your consultation and sign a consent form.
The laser specifically targets the pigment within the hair follicle. Consequently, it is important not to affect the skin’s pigmentation before or after your laser treatments. Sun exposure can increase the risk of adverse reaction including burning, blistering and post inflammatory hyper or hypo pigmentation in some cases these reactions can be permanent and prevent you from achieving your ideal results.
