CAN YOU IMAGINE A LIFE WITHOUT THE HASSLE OF Shaving, waxing or plucking ?

Make that dream a reality with the latest technology in Gem-PL laser systems. Active Optical Systems Ltd, the creators of the Gem-Pl system have more than 25 years’ experience in the hair removal field and are constantly up-grading with the most innovative technology.

Our treatments are safe and effective for all skin and hair types, with noticeable results from the first treatment.

 

How does it work?

Your hair grows in 3 stages, Anagen, Catagen and Telegen.

The hair targeted with the Gem-PL system is at the Anagen stage where it is attached to the hair bulb. The melanin in the hair draws the light & heat energy down the hair shaft and heats up the bulb to around 84°c killing off the blood supply that feeds the root of the hair. The targeted hair will complete its current cycle, but will not regrow in the next cycle. The treated area becomes patchy and the hair growth is slower.

What does the treatment involve?

Bright light pulses at quick intervals – as painful as the sting of a small elastic band on the skin.

6 – 10 treatments are recommended at 4 week intervals for the full hair removal process.

The area must be shaved prior to the treatment.

All forms of waxing or plucking should be avoided during the hair removal process as it interferes with the hair cycle.

For the duration of the treatment cycle, clients are advised to avoid all forms of sun exposure including sun beds and self-tanning lotions. Sun protection during and after all treatment is vital.

Alternatively, you can book a consultation with one of our experienced therapists, who will conduct a patch test and answer all your questions.
