Bio-Med – Advanced Hair Removal Technology

Unwanted hair is a problem for many of us. There are many treatments available such as shaving, waxing and depilatory cream but these only provide short time solutions and are time consuming. Bio-medical concepts, with the aid of science and technology, have conceived a new Bio-Med progressive hair removal treatment, using a combination of laser and I.P.L (intense pulsed light) for the progressive reduction of unwanted hair.

This treatment is suitable for both ladies and gentlemen, but does not work on light coloured hair.

How does it work?

This advanced and safe hair removal system works by emitting a controlled heat source to the hair which is then selectively absorbed by the melanin in the hair. This then creates heat, which damages the growth and the follicle. After repeated treatments the subsequent damage to the hair follicle results in a significant reduction in the growing capacity, which, in turn, produces progressive hair reduction.

How many treatments will I need?

Many factors influence hair growth – age, ethnicity, weight, metabolism, medication and hormones all play a part as to where and when hair grows. Following your in-depth consultation and patch test, your specialist will advise you of realistic expectations. Generally 6 – 12 treatments are required.

Is it painful?

This effective treatment process, suitable for all areas of the body, is very safe and gentle, non invasive and requires no anaesthetic. Most people who experience the treatment feel nothing more than a light warmth or tingling sensation.

What to do next?

We have highly skilled specialists at The Retreat who will be pleased to offer you an in depth consultation regarding your individual requirements. You will be under no obligation whatsoever to continue with a treatment plan.
