CynoSure Elite + FAQs

Laser hair removal works by passing a light beam through the unwanted hair area which is then absorbed by melanin (colour within the hair). This generates heat, which damages the blood supply feeding the hair and disabling the hair forming cells. If the hair follicle does not contain any pigment, the laser will not target it. In other words, if hair is grey, white, blonde or red, laser hair removal will be ineffective.

We use the CynoSure Elite + system which is considered the gold standard in laser technology. The laser uses cooling technology which works before, during and after each pulse to ensure high comfort for all laser hair removal treatments.
