Effortless beauty

Hassle-free hair removal is a bold claim to make, but advances in technology are making hair free, silky smooth skin an achievable reality, according to the experts at Kaya Skin Clinic



Laser hair removal might sound far more awkward, expensive and time consuming than some of the more traditional methods, but don’t let the myths fool you.

Consider how much money you spend on waxing, shaving or depilatory products each year, for example. Razors, wax strips and a trip to the salon – they all begin to add up and the results are often short-lived. Laser hair removal might seem expensive initially, but it doesn’t just remove the hair, it destroys the follicles, which in turn prevents regrowth. So really, you should consider it as a wallet-friendly investment for the future.

“We cut down on the regrowth of hair follicles, providing a long-term solution, thus making it highly cost-effective to conventional hair removal methods in the long run,” says Dr Mohammad Dallah, of Kaya Skin Clinic.

The mere thought of a wax is enough to make some women (and increasing numbers of men) wince – and rightly so. But suffering for smooth skin isn’t an issue with laser treatment.

While the word “laser” may conjure up images of James Bond strapped to Goldfinger’s table about to be lasered in half, in reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Kaya Skin Clinic uses the latest “In-MOTION” technology, which allows for the surrounding skin to be kept cool while the low-level laser acts on a larger area of hair – repeatedly destroying follicles with zero pain for the patient.

The entire process results in no burns and, more importantly, no pain. It’s not as simple as just one treatment, though, and depending on skin tone and hair colour, treatments will differ for each patient. However, trained clinicians will be able to advise the best possible treatment method for lasting effects.

Q&A with Dr Mohammad Dallah:  Ingrown hairs

Dr

Question: Whenever I shave or wax, I get ingrown hairs. They’re not usually unsightly or uncomfortable, but they do leave my skin feeling bumpy and less than silky smooth. Can you recommend anything to improve them?

Answer: Ingrown hairs are one of those nuisances that can happen to anyone. They’re caused by hair curling back and growing under the skin, resulting in raised bumps, irritation and in certain cases can become infected. Shaving is the prime cause of ingrown hairs. When shaving, ensure the razor is very sharp, rinse the area with warm water and apply shaving foam before shaving in the direction of hair growth. Otherwise, exfoliate regularly, rubbing the skin in a circular motion to discourage ingrown hairs. Laser hair treatment is a more permanent option as it destroys the follicles from which hair grows. The benefit of laser treatment is that there’s no skin irritation, no discolouration and no inflammation as seen with other hair removal methods.
