Welcome to Laser Hair Removal

Setsuko Beauty uses gold standard lasers to give you the best treatment results. But why choose Setsuko Beauty Clinic for laser treatments near me?

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a long-term hair reduction method using laser light. This laser light is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair, creating heat and the heat damages hair follicles in such a way as to inhibit regrowth.
There is an increasing demand for longer-term solutions, and laser treatments have become very popular. So, are laser treatments permanent?

Why Should I have Laser Hair Removal?

Consumers spend a small fortune on razors, shaving cream, waxing and other hair removal accessories over the years but the cost of laser hair removal often amounts to far less.

Treatments will save you time by allowing you to avoid taking valuable time out of your day for short-term hair removal.

Ingrown hairs can be painful, and unsightly and risk infection when removed. Laser treatment can help to reduce ingrowing hairs.

Getting rid of unwanted hair can be a life-changing experience for many people.

Why should you consider laser hair removal for your Wedding?

LYNTON LASERS MOTUS AY

We use the MOTUS AY Laser, the world’s first FDA-approved True Alexandrite and Nd:YAG laser with “Moveo Technology” to make your treatment virtually Pain-Free. This cutting-edge device is fast, safe, and highly effective on ALL skin colours. The Motus AY is used in the NHS and top aesthetic clinics.

Several different types of lasers are used for hair removal. Every kind of Laser generates light at a specific frequency.

The Alexandrite laser has a shorter wavelength compared to other hair removal lasers. It has the best melanin energy absorption, which is particularly good for fine hairs. As the skin can also absorb this energy, it is usually best used on people with lighter skin tones.

The Nd:YAG laser has a longer wavelength that is less easily absorbed by the skin, making the YAG laser best for people with darker skin tones.

Please look at our Laser Treatment Prices.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL OR IPL?

Sometimes the term IPL Laser is used, but this is incorrect as IPL and Laser are totally different.

Which is better, IPL or Laser?

The honest answer is, “It depends.” There are several types of laser; Alexandrite, Nd:YAG, Diode, Ruby, as well as IPL. All have certain skin types, hair types, and hair sizes that they excel at.

The quality of the machine, the training of the practitioner and the maintenance of the equipment can have a massive impact on the effect of the treatment.

As a laser is a more targeted machine than IPL, using the correct laser will give better results than IPL in general.

See further details on treatments on our FAQ page.

LASER light is:

Nearly 100% of laser light is one pure colour.

Light is emitted as a relatively narrow beam in a specific direction, making the light very powerful.

The light is totally reinforcing and in phase in space and time.

WHAT IS IPL HAIR REMOVAL?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a broadband pulsed light source; imagine a powerful camera flash.

IPL hair removal emits light which is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. This light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth. The light produced by IPL is over a range of wavelengths, so the energy is not transmitted to hairs as efficiently as laser light.

IPL light is:

The light has many different colours and only a certain percentage of those colours are effective in the treatment of hair removal.

Light is emitted in many directions away from the source.

Many different wavelengths are generated and therefore some scatter in the skin.
