Hair grows in a cycle of three stages: anagen (growth), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting).
Venus Velocity™ uses laser technology to target the hair follicle in the anagen phase, which is when the hair responds best to the treatment. About 30% of hair is in this phase at any given time, which is why you need multiple treatments to see results. Venus Velocity™ works by delivering energy to the hair follicle, where it’s absorbed by the hair pigment. This destroys the follicle so that the hair cannot grow anymore, resulting in permanent hair reduction.
Laser hair removal is for individuals who want to permanently reduce unwanted hair on their face or body through laser treatments.
For safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have/are:
Previous problems with laser therapy
A history of keloid scarring
Active infection or history of herpes simplex in the treatment area
Use of hair removal treatments, such as waxing, plucking, or electrolysis within 6 weeks prior to treatment
Venus Velocity™ hair removal treatments can be done on darker skin tones, even tanned skin, but using different settings for greater safety. Serenna will perform a patch test and wait 24 hours, to assess your reaction to the laser.
We recommend clients start with 6 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person’s skin type, hair colour and texture, and the area being treated.
All new clients require a pre treatment patch even if you have received laser treatment elsewhere before.
Your patch test is complimentary prior to treatment. Your first treatment can then take place no less than 24h from the patch test.
As with all our appointments, to book in, a refundable deposit of £50 is processed via our booking site and can be used against treatment costs or returned to you if you are not suitable for treatment or do not wish to go ahead.
Make sure your skin is clean and shave the area the night prior to your treatment. Serenna will also ask about your medical history, so it helps to have that information ready.
