Hair Removal


Permanent hair removal with the best and safest laser on the market Genesis Ice Platinum. This laser is a safe method and we can treat all skin types, including darker skin types, but not black skin. Diode lasers are more effective, faster and safer than previous generations of lasers and light treatments such as IPL. Important to consider: If you are taking any special prescription medications for example Roaccutane, this should be informed to the clinic before booking. Our treatments are carried out by specially trained skin therapists with extensive experience in the field.

The difference between IPL Laser and Diode Laser?

Less pain

Our diode laser has double cooling which allows you to use higher power without damaging the skin which also gives a better result.


Our diode laser uses a patented pulse technology PIPW (Pulse in Pulse Wave), which gives a better effect on hair removal, and much less pain for the patient.

Fewer treatments

This method is more effective and reduces more hair follicles at each treatment, which means you’ll be hair-free faster and it’s also more economical overall.

How is the treatment done?

A cold gel is applied to the skin and then the diode laser is moved back and forth with small, intense pulses of light. A so-called collimated lens delivers a direct wave of laser energy without loss and side scattering, which means that the energy only reaches the hair follicle where it is heated up and does not affect surrounding tissue. Sometimes a slight reddening of the skin can be seen for the first 24 hours, but often the hair removal treatment is not noticeable. Unlike IPL lasers, the diode laser has double built-in cooling which makes it almost painless.

Removal takes anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the areas of the body being treated.

How is the skin affected after treatment?

Some people look just as they did in the skin before the treatment began, without even a blush. Some people get a slight redness. It is common to get red dots, a heat build-up occurs around each follicle, it turns red. This subsides after a few minutes to an hour or so.

After laser removal, there is usually some redness and swelling. In some cases, occasional water blisters are seen which disappear spontaneously within a week. It is important not to tear the blisters as they can become infected and cause scarring.

Do not expose the treated skin area to strong sunlight for a week. It is good to soothe the skin with cooling balm or Aloe Vera gel, if the skin feels irritated. This should be done immediately after the treatment so that any heat build-up does not spread. The preparations should remain on the skin until the heat subsides and should be applied in a thick layer, repeatedly if necessary.

To minimise the risk of pigmentation changes on the skin after laser removal, it is important to protect treated body parts from sun exposure. This is especially true in the first week after the removal.

How does laser hair removal work?

The laser light passes through the skin and heats up pigments in the hair. The heat spreads from the hair down to the roots, which are heated to about 70°C, permanently destroying them (permanent reduction). The temperature of the roots is determined by the dose of laser light. To achieve an optimal result with the least possible risk of side effects, it is important to adapt the dose to the skin and hair colour. Compared to other methods, the risk of skin damage is low. The diode laser’s built-in cooling system cools the skin during treatment. However, the temperature of the hair roots is not affected by the cooling. This results in selective hair removal. As with other laser or IPL systems, the diode laser only works on hair follicles that are in the growth phase.

What can be treated?

We can treat hairs that are dark or lighter brown, the hair must contain pigment. We cannot treat completely white/blonde, grey and red hairs. It is possible to treat almost every skin type, (skin type 1-VI), even darker skin type can be treated such as Indian skin type. If you are unsure, please consult us during the consultation. The best candidate is the skin type with as light skin as possible and as dark and strong hairs as possible.

You get results after each treatment. For the next 10-20 days, it will appear that the hair is still growing. This is normal. After that, hair will fall out in patches due to the different growth cycles of the hair.

After several treatments, hair grows more slowly and becomes finer and finer.

How many treatments are needed?

In most cases, 4-12 treatments are needed to achieve the optimal hair removal effect, but this can vary between patients. Some may need more treatments. The reason for this is that hair removal only accesses the active hair follicles. Dormant hair follicles have no pigment and are therefore not heated by the laser pulses during hair removal. Intimate areas and armpits may need a few more treatments than other parts of the body as there are often many hair follicles there.

A man’s beard may require 15 treatments due to the heavy hair growth. And facial hair also takes a few more treatments than the body. The growth phase of the hair is a determining factor in the outcome of the treatment and approximately 30% of the visibly growing hairs disappear after each treatment. This is the number of body hairs that are in the growing phase but can vary from person to person. Hair colour and hair thickness are also important, the darker and coarser the hair, the quicker satisfactory results are achieved. It is not certain that 100% of the hair will disappear permanently; individual hairs may become active later in life. Hormonal imbalances and diseases can reactivate individual hairs.

How often?

The area where the hair growth is to be removed should be treated continuously. After 4-8 weeks between treatments as you must wait until the dormant hair follicles become active again. This can vary by area of the body and person. As many hairs as possible should be visible for best results. The more treatments you have done, the longer it may take between treatments. Often several months.

Some patients may find that after a few hair removal treatments, they suddenly have more hair. The explanation is that the remaining dormant hair follicles are “activated” by the laser faster than they would have been without treatment. This just means that it is easier to remove these “newly activated” hair follicles in subsequent treatments.

To think about

  • Do not expose skin to any form of sun/UV light 1 week before and after.
  • Do not use tanning products before treatment.
  • You may only shave the area or cut with scissors.
  • You must not wax, thread, or use tweezers on the area during the treatment.
  • Do not use skin thinning medications, e.g., Roaccutane, tetralysal, etc.
  • Do not use deodorant before your treatment (applies to armpit treatment only).
