What is it? What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair removal is now one of the most popular and affordable treatments within the aesthetics industry. Men and women alike suffer with unwanted hair on areas of the body, and may spend countless hours shaving, waxing for a temporary result.
Laser hair removal is a fantastic permanent solution to this. If you are looking for laser hair removal in Manchester, KLNIK provides the gold standard in technology, suitable for Caucasian, Mediterranean and Asian skin types. The Lumenis Lightsheer Desire Diode laser allows for an effective, longer lasting hair removal solution.
The LightSheer Desire procedure is a pain-free laser hair removal solution, allowing you to relax while a highly-trained aesthetic technician performs the treatment in as little as 5 minutes for small areas such as lip, chin, underarms, and up to 50 minutes for lager areas such as half back or half legs. Whether you usually choose shaving or waxing, electrolysis or hair removal cream, the options can be painful, messy and ineffective, as well as time-consuming. LightSheer® laser hair removal in Manchester is ground-breaking technology.
As the cool tip of the LightSheer Desire laser is pulsed over the skin in the targeted area, the pigment in the hair absorbs the energy delivered. This energy targets the hair follicle and travels down to the root (hair papilla) killing the blood supply and preventing regrowth. The hair typically sheds 2-6 weeks later and the area is smooth. Between sessions the hair grows back finer, making it more manageable. Ingrown hairs usually subside within a few sessions as well as skin irritation from shaving as the thicker hairs are a thing of the past!
