Highly Effective Light-Based Treatments Provide Permanent Hair Reduction

Duquessa Skin  and Anti Aging Clinic Melbourne are  pleased to announce will are offering advanced pulsed-light treatments for permanent hair reduction. If you live with unwanted hair on your back, legs, upper lip or other areas, you may be surprised to learn of the safe and effective hair removal options open to you.

According to Katherine, a Nurse Practitioner candidate with offices in Carlton North, “Pulsed light treatments are remarkable because they provide permanent hair reduction on large body areas with a minimum of discomfort. I’m pleased to report my patients have experienced superior results after only a few treatments.

“Pulsed light is similar to a laser in that it uses an intense beam of light,” continues Katherine “But the difference is in the comfort and speed of treatment.”

Pulsed-light systems have the flexibility to provide varied hair removal treatments on different types of skin and hair. The systems remove unwanted hair by targeting the hair follicles. The specific wavelengths of light are absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then disables the cells responsible for growing new hair.

“Pulsed light treatments are significantly more effective than such temporary solutions as shaving and waxing,” says Katherine. “Most patients describe the pulses as a ‘snapping’ sensation, which causes mild discomfort at most. After the treatment, there may be some redness for a few days, but that quickly fades and the patient can enjoy the effects of permanent hair reduction.”
