Apparently WA has been living in the prehistoric ages when it comes to hair removal. We’ve all been shaving, waxing and forking out loads of cash for IPL treatments only to find our pesky little hairs keep on growing back. Sigh.
Well, today is a good hair day because SILK Laser Clinics (who already have four locations in Perth) have announced they will be opening four new locations before the end of 2018! It’s official, a WA beauty revolution is upon us.
SILK specialise in medical grade laser hair removal, skin treatments, cosmetic injectables, and their premium skilled staff are next level, so rest assured you will be in the best hands.
Why is this so revolutionary, you ask? Well, up until now medical grade laser was only practiced by doctors in Western Australia and it was really expensive. But thankfully the laws have changed and we’re now able to go to laser clinics for treatments from highly trained and fully certified staff, just like the rest of Australia. Wild.
In case you didn’t know, laser hair removal is far superior to IPL. The main difference is that IPL uses a broad spectrum, high-intensity light emitted at multiple wavelengths, whereas SILK’s Candela laser treatments emit a single, precise wavelength optimised for maximum follicle absorption. If that sounded technical, that’s because it is, but basically laser is much more targeted, resulting in fewer treatments and less risk.
The sad truth, however, is that not all skin and hair types are compatible for effective laser hair removal. But if you’ve got pale skin with dark hair you’re the ideal candidate. Basically you want the greatest skin to hair colour variance possible and make sure you haven’t fake tanned before your appointment. Trust us, we learned the hard way.
SILK offers heaps of deals and discount packages so it’s definitely a luxury you can afford. For ultimate hair removal results, it’s recommended you have ten treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, so you might as well get a package from the get go.
To find out if laser hair removal is for you, arrange a consultation with the accredited staff at SILK Laser Clinic now.
