No. Hormones are the cause of hair growth. When a woman is pregnant her hormone levels can interfere with the laser treatment. We advise that pregnant woman return for laser treatments once they have had their baby.

Pain-Free laser hair removal at The Beauty Spot is for everyone. Because we use revolutionary technology and In Motion treatment technique, our treatments are safe for all skin types including Asian, ethnic and tanned. Conventional type lasers would not be suitable for darker skin types and one would not be able to have treatments in summer as sun exposure would result in pigmentation.

Laser hair removal works with the pigmentation in one’s hair. Therefore the darker, the thicker and course the hair, the better the result. White, grey, very blond, light ginger or vellus hair has very little to no pigmentation and therefore cannot be treated by any laser or light therapy. Darker ginger and blonde hair types can be treated but one may require more sessions.

Many advances have been made in laser treatments. One such advance is that more people can safely have laser hair removal. In the past, only people with dark hair and light skin could safely have laser hair removal. Today, laser hair removal is also a treatment option for clients who have light-coloured hair and light skin and clients who have dark skin. Lighter hair might require more treatments as the rule of thumb is that” light follows colour”. That means that the darker the hair is, the easier the laser light is absorbed. Nevertheless, the special wavelength of the Alma laser is able to penetrate even lighter hair, except grey hair

Unwanted Hair can be embarrassing, unsightly and time-consuming to remove. Conventional ways of removing hair, such as shaving and waxing, need to be done repeatedly and causes often skin irritations, infections and pain. Laser hair removal involves using a laser to heat the small cavities in the skin, known as follicles, which hair grows out of. The heat of the laser damages the follicles, which prevents future hair growth in that area. Hair follows a specific growth cycle with three distinct and concurrent phases: anagen (growing), catagen (regression) and telogen (resting, not growing) phases. Each phase has specific characteristics and all three phases occur simultaneously; one strand of hair may be in the anagen phase, while another is in the telogen phase. The anagen phase has also two distinct hair growth sub-phases; anagen –early hair growth and anagen- active hair growth. The laser treatments affect only the anagen-active hair growth phase.  

In all the decades of laser treatments, there has never been any form of cancer associated with laser treatments.
The light energy from these lasers remains superficially at the level of the skin and causes no damage or mutation to the DNA. The pulses of light energy used in laser hair removal treatments are only designed to heat and destroy hair follicles. There are no risks associated with treating areas near reproductive organs. The light used does not penetrate beyond the depths of the hair follicle and internal organs are in no way affected, nor is fertility. This applies also to moles that are exposed to laser treatments. Even though some irritation might occur on moles, as the light is more absorbed on darker skin areas, it is a temporary condition and usually resolves itself within days. Your laser therapist will take your moles into account, and either work around moles and/ or adjust the settings on the laser device. There is no association between laser treatments, moles and cancer.

Treatments with the Alma  do not require any down time or recovery time. You can return to work or other activities immediately. Excessive exercise, however, should be avoided for a couple of days in order to avoid sweating that might irritate the treated area. Beauty spot is conveniently located in a quiet suburb in Eversdal, Durbanville. You can pop by before work or during your lunch break, or any other time that is convenient for you. Or come after work, avoid the traffic back home, take your laser treatment and relax with one of our treatment

You will likely see the results immediately after treatment. The results vary from patient to patient. The colour and thickness of your hair, area treated, and colour of your skin all affect the results. You can expect a 10% to 25% reduction in hair after the first treatment. With each treatment your hair will get finer and finer, until it does not grow anymore.

In order to gain optimal results and minimise any risks, you should avoid putting any creams such as lotions or sun creams on the area that is to be treated. Furthermore it is of utmost importance that you shave the night or morning before the treatment. There has to be no hair on the surface of the skin, otherwise, that hair will absorb some of the laser energy, and that is what might cause pain. The better the client is shaved, the more comfortable the procedure will be. After the procedure you should avoid direct sun exposure for 3 days as well as strong touch on the treated area. It is recommended that you wear lose clothing in order not to cause irritations of the treated skin. The treated area should not be exposed to warm or hot water for several hours, and washing the area should be done with a mild body wash. In few cases one might experience minor redness and swelling after treatment. Applying a cool compress can help reduce your discomfort.

Once the actively hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow new hair. However, there are invariably a few hair follicles that manage to partially escape the laser during each treatment. Some of these follicles may be only stunned and will need to be retreated. However it is not unusual for a client to come back for a maintenance session twice or 3 times a year or due to clients age and hormonal changes.

No. Pain-Free, Hair-Free requires no “down time” or recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work or school immediately.

Small areas are done in 4-6 week intervals. Eg; Face,Bikini and Underarms.
Larger areas are 6-8 week intervals. Eg; Legs, Chest and Back.
