Excessive or unsightly body hair can be upsetting for both men and women and can be difficult, inconvenient and painful to remove. The newest generation of hair removal laser, provides a rapid, gentle and pain-free method of removing unwanted hair. Laser hair removal gives you a long-lasting answer to unwanted hair with the comfort and knowledge that there is no more painful waxing, irritating shaving or annoying stubble.
At your first consultation with one of our Practitioners, you will have the opportunity to discuss any questions you may have regarding the treatments. You will require an initial test patch in the area to determine the suitability of your skin type and the number and frequency of anticipated treatment cycles also will be discussed with you. If you choose to proceed with the treatment then you should expect each treatment session to take between 10-45 minutes depending upon the area being treated. It will be necessary to shave the area prior to each session. Whilst you can continue to shave between treatments it is important that you do not wax or pluck the area.
As the treatment is non-invasive and painless, the recovery is immediate, although the treated area may be a little red for a few hours afterwards. You will be offered a moisturiser to use on the area by your therapist.
You should avoid exposure to extremes of heat (such as sauna, sunbed or direct sun exposure) for 24-48 hours after each treatment.
You will notice a difference after each treatment, although it may take up-to 2 weeks for the hairs to begin to fall out, exfoliating may help.
There are many methods to remove unwanted hair, none are absolutely permanent. Laser Hair Removal is by far the most effective treatment available and is the only clinically proven treatment for the removal of unwanted facial and body hair gently, quickly and effectively with long-lasting results. Most people see between 80-90% less hair growth after a full course.
No. Far from being painful, laser hair removal using the Syneron e-lase is virtually pain-free and a long-lasting way to remove unwanted hair. As laser hair removal is not painful like many other hair removal treatments, it can be used to remove hair from sensitive areas, such as the face or bikini line, as well as from your back, tummy or chest.
You may see noticeable results after your first treatment, generally a significant reduction in volume takes 3-4 treatments.
The number of treatments needed varies between patients depending on skin colour, hair colour, texture and density, medical history, the area being treated and how the patient responds to treatments. For the best results we recommend you complete the full course which typically will be 8-10 treatments.
Yes, the newest generation of hair removal laser, such as the Syneron e-lase used by Rostra Beauty means we can treat patients with all skin tones. One of our highly trained staff will examine you and make an assessment of both your skin and hair type and confirm whether a test patch is required for safe treatment.

Laser Hair Removal is a very popular procedure with men particularly on the back, shoulders, chest, neck and around the beard.
You may continue to shave or use depilatory cream if you wish to keep the treated area ‘hair free’, but you must not pluck or wax the area between treatments.
We do have single treatments available should you require more sessions after you have completed your package.
