The Pulsar system is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that can be used on all areas of the body for both men and women. It produces intense pulses of light which are absorbed by melanin - the substance which gives hair its colour. As the light is absorbed it generates heat, which in turn destroys the hair follicle without affecting the surrounding skin.
Like all hair removal treatment, Pulsar may only remove visible, growing hair. What must be recognised is that there are various growth stages for hair which can be affected by hormonal changes in the body. Pulsar treats hair at the anagen (visible, growing) stage. At any one time about 50% of body hair is at this phase and can be targeted by the Pulsar treatment.
Hair growth is cyclical and it is a certainty that at the time of any treatment hair follicles will be forming beneath the skin and the resultant hair will show through eventually. It is likely that this hair will be much finer than that which has been removed. Because of the different rates of hair development and growth a number of Pulsar treatments may be required to obtain the desired effect, with occasional mini-treatments required at later dates to maintain the full effects.
We offer a free consultation to answer any questions you may have and to select the precise treatment to match your skin colour and hair type. We make a test strip 72 hours beforehand before going ahead to make sure there are no adverse effects.
