Laser Hair Removal Pretoria
As one of the industry’s leading laser hair removal specialists in South Africa targeting unwanted hair we provide expert care with superior results.
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light, the laser to remove hair. During laser hair removal, the laser emits concentrated light that is absorbed by the pigment called melanin in the hair.
The light energy is converted to heat in the hair, which then destroys the hair follicle that produce hair. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth and remove unwanted hair resulting in hair loss.
Using our award-winning diode laser technology, the Alma Soprano Ice Laser is able to treat every skin type in effectively removing hair with permanent hair reduction noticed after the first session.

One of the most common questions, does laser hair removal hurt? It does not hurt; most of our clients describe the treatments as feeling as a ‘warm sensation’. Our therapists will ensure you are comfortable throughout the treatment. No numbing creams or aesthetic are necessary. Waxing is a way more painful experience.
Laser hair removal is more permanent hair reduction than permanent hair removal. In most cases, the hair never grows back, but it is not guaranteed.
Laser hair removal treatments reduce unwanted body hair by destroying the hair follicle. After each laser treatment, you’ll notice a reduction in the amount of hair growing back, until hair regrowth ceases altogether.
Factors such as hormonal changes, pregnancy, certain medications may stimulate hair growth. It is a possibility, but this rarely happens. Our therapist will explain everything in detail to make sure you are a good candidate.
In short, the at home devices are not as powerful and effective as the professional treatments. They also mostly use intense pulse light technology which is less effective then a diode laser.

There is no difference in human biology in this regard, both are as effective as each other and just like you see in womens health, mens health is all about the manscaping now days! We’ve treated all shapes and sizes, all genders and races.
Laser hair removal also aids mens health by treating common conditions such as ingrown hair that can cause discomfort.
The laser treatment can remove unwanted hair in most areas quickly and effectively. Popular body hair areas include the upper lip, legs, underarm and bikini line which are some of the most requested from our female clients.
Getting laser hair removal treatments is also a popular choice with our male clientele. Common requested areas such as the chest, stomach, back, face, ears and nose, are all possible to be treated with our diode laser.
After the first two sessions, you should notice significant hair loss / hair reduction. Ideally you should see a 9% – 14% hair reduction, however, it is different for each individual. We recommend a full course between 8-12 laser hair removal treatments for optimal results.
Depends from person to person, generally people with dark hairs and fairer skin see results faster because its easier for the laser to target the hairs due to the contrast. That being said no two people are the same and our therapist will give an informed answer specifically to your skin type at your free consultation.
Very safe. Your safety is our priority (cliché, we know. But very true). The high-quality system we use for our laser hair removal in Pretoria East is safe on all skin types. We even give you highly fashionable green safety glasses to wear during your treatment to protect your eyes from the emitted light.
Laser hair removal is overall, very safe and well-tolerated. There do not appear to be any long-term health risks associated with the treatment. However, some minor side effects after laser hair removal may occur. A therapist will perform a test patch to see how the skin reacts in a small controlled area.
Effects and risks may include:
Slight Redness – Laser hair removal damages the follicles of the targeted hair causing the hair loss. The affected area may look similar to skin that has just been waxed or plucked. Our therapists will provide a calming gel after treatment and will advise keeping sun exposure to a minimum for a few days especially with our South Africa sun.
Temporary Changes in Skin Colour – Some people may notice minor colour changes to the treated area of skin. Dark skin or light skin, these changes fade away over time, and the skin returns to normal, again it is advised to reduce sun exposure to a minimum.
