Laser hair removal is a fast, virtually pain free method of removing unwanted hair and ingrown hairs long term and is ideal for both men and woman of all skin types.  We are able to safely  treat  all skin types including  Asian and Afro- Caribbean.

The excess production of androgens (male hormones such as testosterone) is responsible for the extra hair growth, which can appear in unexpected places. The medical term for excessive hair growth that affects men and woman is called hypertrichosis. This can fuel anxiety, depression, emotional and physical problems. Self esteem and quality of life also suffer but now we can effectively treat conditions such as hirsutism.

We have found in most cases the end results of hair removal to be permanent and very rewarding.

Osiris Skin Aesthetics provides the most advanced laser hair removal in Essex and Suffolk after investing in the  Aesthetic Award  winning Lumenis Light Sheer Diode Laser.

(Permanent hair removal and how it works).

Lumenis light sheer laser has been voted the number 1 hair removal system in the world over the last 15 years and over 25% of all laser hair removal treatments worldwide are done with a Light Sheer Laser.

We have to heat up the germ cells to 65 degrees Celsius to permanently destroy the cells to stop the hair follicle regenerating.  Unfortunately germ cells are invisible to light/laser therefore we choose a target chromophore that is close to proximity to transfer the heat.

The recognised target chromophore is the melanin/colour within the hair shaft, therefore we need a wavelength of light that is highly absorbed in melanin, that penetrates deep enough for us to heat up the melanin long enough to create its destruction.  The problem is that different hair thicknesses require different treatment times, finer hair requiring short pulses and course hair requiring longer pulses.

The skin colour is also a consideration on darker skins as we require much longer pulse durations and in an ideal condition a stacked pulse delivery.

Does it hurt?

Lumenis light sheer has a contact cooling head which cools the epidermis when treating, unlike competitor systems that require resting times during treatment the light sheer laser can be used continuously without fear of over heating the skin.

It is normal to feel a slight pinging sensation like a band pinging onto the skin, no pain or discomfort and clients say it is much more comfortable that waxing methods.
