Primelase - Laser for Hair Removal
Primelase is a Laser Hair Removal system by Ultra Aesthetics. Designed to be highly effective and predictable on all kinds of skin phototypes and hair types, Primelase heats targeted tissue without affecting or damaging surrounding structures.
Laser hair removal works by destroying hair follicles with heat and should as much as possible respect the surrounding tissue such as the epidermis and the dermis layers of the skin. Primelase is able to do this via high-energy light pulses at specifically selected wavelengths to suit the individual. These wavelengths are absorbed by the melanin in the skin. There is an ideal time to have laser hair removal – this is when the hair is the thickest and most highly pigmented. Your Primelase practitioner should be able to advise you when is most suitable to make your appointment.
Primelase achieves permanent hair removal and improves the quality of the skin at the same time. It can also help to remove cystic hair and improve any issues with folliculitis, carbuncles, hypertrichosis and hidradentis.
The beauty of the Primelase is that it has four different wavelength settings so it can be specifically tailored to suit each patient as an individual, and treat each area according to what is most appropriate and will be most effective for the desired results.
