Laser Hair Reduction
At Donna Donaghy Skincare & Laser, Donna prides herself in using only the best Class 4, Alexandrite Medical Grade Laser, from Cynosure. (FDA approved)
It is accompanied by the “smart cool” chilled air system, which provides skin comfort during treatments, giving a constant flow of cold air.
In combination of Donna’s excellent knowledge and expertise, you are sure to get the service you deserve, when investing in a course of laser.
Before starting any course of laser, Donna carries out a patch test at the initial consultation, to make sure the client is suitable for laser, and to also give the client a chance to see potential results!
Most clients notice a significant result, even after one treatment, however best results are generally seen on dark hair and pale skin tones.
There are some factors which may affect the success of hair reduction, being hormone levels, age and hair density.
Normally all clients are satisfied with results after 6-8 treatments, and treatments can be from 4 weeks to 8 weeks apart for best results.
Hair can be shaved or cut in between treatments, as this will not affect the hair growth, however waxing and plucking must be avoided.
Dark hair and light skin tone is the best for successful laser treatments. However, blonde, white, grey and very fine hair is not suitable for laser, as there is no melanin (colour) present in the hair.
Laser for Pigmentation
What is pigmentation?
Pigmentation/Hyper pigmentation is a common skin condition, where some areas or patches of skin turn darker in colour.
It is usually a harmless condition, caused when there is too much of the pigment, melanin on the surface of the skin.
Pigmentation has 2 main forms: Hyper pigmentation and Hypo pigmentation, which both have several symptoms.
Hyper pigmentation is where patches of skin become darker in colour than normal, Hypo pigmentation is the reverse process, where patches of skin become lighter than surrounding skin.
However, treatable pigment includes, freckles, age/liver/sunspots and general sun damage.
Clients will notice a difference after one treatment. Up to 4 treatments may be required and can be preformed 4 – 6 weeks apart. After treatment the pigment will appear darker, this will naturally disappear in 4 – 6 days post treatment.
It is essential to wear a high sun protection factor before and after treatments. Epionce SPF 50 can be purchased at Donna Donaghy Skincare & laser.
Nd Yag Laser for Veins
Nd Yag laser can be used for the removal of facial and leg veins.
Facial Veins can affect our confidence and make us have to wear makeup 24/7 – well no more!
Laser treatment can dramatically improve your appearance leaving those facial veins far less visible! This treatment is safe, effective and straight forward. Clients will need 1 – 3 treatments, 4 – 6 weeks apart.
Leg veins are broken veins known as thread veins, spider veins or dermal flares.
These are unsightly and embarrassing. They determine what we wear a lot of the time, tan doesn’t always cover them, and people just lack confidence having them.
Thank goodness for Nd Yag lasers!
