Men and women alike are making unwanted hair a thing of the past, thanks to the latest in laser technology. At Clinique Elan we use the Cutera CoolGlide laser to treat this common problem. Permanent hair reduction can usually be achieved after several sessions, but only when treating dark hair. Laser light needs colour to be absorbed and convert into heat, effectively destroying the hair follicle. Fair, red or grey hair cannot be treated with light therapy. At Clinique Elan, we recommend Blading for removing fine vellus hair on the face. This lasts up to six weeks. Unwanted hair can be present due to hormonal reasons or medication. Other times it comes down to personal preference.
