Laser Hair Removal

Whilst we love waxing at Brazilian Butterfly we appreciate some of our clients simply don’t have the time to commit to a waxing appointment every 4 – 6 weeks.

If you are a male or female who likes to keep themselves looking primped and primed but don’t have the time to do so then Laser Hair Removal is for you!

What is Laser Hair Removal you ask? Laser hair removal is a fast, gentle and effective way to remove unwanted hair from areas of the body with long term results.

Given that traditional hair removal methods don’t stop the hair from growing back, Laser hair removal works by utilizing a beam of highly concentrated light which selectively penetrates the hair follicle. The hair follicle absorbs the light into the pigment of the hair which in turn destroys the hair within that follicle.

Before booking in an appointment with us you will need to first come in for a free, no obligation consultation so we can assess your skin and hair type. Whilst our machines can treat almost every skin and hair type we want to be sure before we book you in!

Once we have booked you in for your first appointment you will be wondering how to prepare!

  1. Limit hair removal in the weeks leading up to your treatment
    Note; if you have been bleaching the hair, you will need to allow your normal hair colour to regrow
  2. Avoid sun exposure in the 2 weeks leading up to your treatment
  3. Shave the area being treated the night before, or the day of your treatment
  4. Avoid using deodorants, moisturisers and other skin care products on the day of your treatment

Don’t feel nervous going into your first treatment, it is a really quick, simple procedure. As you arrive to your chosen Brazilian Butterfly salon one of our therapists will greet you and take you through to your treatment room. For any brazilian or bikini treatments your therapist will leave the room and allow you to undress and prepare the area you are having lasered, for all other areas the therapist will prepare the area for you.

Our therapist will then ensure the laser has been customised to suit your specific skin and hair type and provide you with eyewear protection before commencing.

The therapist will then commence your laser hair removal treatment by gliding the laser hand piece across your skin whilst emitting light in short sharp pulses.

Once the area has been treated our therapists will apply BB Repair to the area, this has been specifically formulated to rehydrate and cool the skin after laser hair removal treatments.

Once your treatment has concluded the area can experience some redness and swelling for several hours, this is normal and nothing to be concerned over! For post treatment care ensure you carry out the following:

  1. Avoid hot showers, spas, swimming pools and exercise for the first 48 hours. Treated areas should not be exposed to any heat so activities which generate heat should be avoided!
  2. Avoid direct sunlight and spray tans for 2 weeks after your treatment
  3. Apply BB Repair to the area for the first few days to help rehydrate your skin
  4. Avoid exfoliating the area for 3 – 4 days post treatment.

If we haven’t yet convinced you that laser hair removal is the way to go there are also these incredible benefits:

  1. Precision: Lasers can selectively target hairs whilst leaving the skin surrounding the hairs undamaged.
  2. Speed: Each pulse of laser takes a fraction of a second to emit and can treat many hairs at the same time.
  3. Sensitivity: Lasers are safe enough to be used on any part of the body and any type of skin type.
