What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular laser treatments for both female and male clients at Tracey Bell.
Laser hair removal works on your back, arms, legs, chin, bikini, virtually anywhere.
Laser hair removal at Tracey Bell will reduce hair growth and promote smooth feeling skin, it works by destroying the bulge in the root of the hair and hence preventing hair growth.
Normally we recommend at least six treatments of laser. However, this will need to be assessed with a practitioner at Tracey Bell as each individual has different hair growth.
At Tracey Bell we treat both dark and light hair with Laser Hair Removal (LHR). If you have light/blonde hair, a topical cream ’Meladine’ may have to be used prior to any treatment.
Meladine works by dying the hair follicle and hence allowing the laser to penetrate into the hair.
