Hair Removal

What is it and how does it help?

For both men and women, Hair Removal continues to be the #1 requested energy-based aesthetic treatment. Worldwide procedure volume is expected to grow in the future as more and more people are educated and made aware of their treatment options.

The Noblex’s offers constantly safe treatments at various treatment parameters – for fine, medium and thick hair.

Noblex’s treatment parameters, including multiple spot sizes 2-20mm and adjustable settings including speeds up to 10Hz and spot size up to 20mm making Noblex a fast Alexandrite laser, allowing you to customise procedures based on your client’s skin and hair type—for constantly optimal results.

Easily treat your patients with fine hair and high melanin content in their skin. Noblex allows you to safely and effectively treat the most difficult of clients by delivering enough energy to destroy hair follicles, yet protect the epidermis from thermal injury.

How does it work?

The laser uses high-energy light to target skin structures such as hair follicles, in their growing (anagen) phase. The laser energy gets converted into heat and destroys the hair follicle target.

Can all skin colours be treated?

The LightSheer Duet works best for skin types 1 to 4. Skin types 5 and 6 are better suited to the Nd:YAG laser hair removal, to reduce the risk of burning which can lead to darkening of the skin.

Can tanned skin be treated?

Patients undergoing laser hair removal should avoid tanning for at least 3–4 weeks prior to treatment. A paler skin is less likely to burn or suffer pigment changes after treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

You may need to be treated about 5–10 times, at approximately 4-8 week intervals. The procedure is performed by our specialist nurse with parameters developed by our dermatologists. There are three phases of hair growth – anagen, catagen, and telogen. Only hairs in the active growth or anagen phase can be successfully treated. Usually only 20% of the hair is in anagen phase, which is why several serial treatments are necessary to ultimately target 100% of the hair follicles. Women undergoing laser treatment of facial hair should consider using a special prescription cream, at the same time, to further enhance the effectiveness of the laser hair reduction.
