Keen To Get Rid of Unwanted Hair?
Hair growth must be at least half a centimetre in length. Ideally, a centimetre is best. If you shave, you must leave the hair growth for 3 weeks before your waxing appointment. If you wax, then you will need to leave hair growth 4 weeks between waxing appointments. On the day of your appointment, do not apply moisturiser on the areas to be waxed.

Electrolysis is the only existing FDA-approved method of 100% permanent hair removal.
Obviously, a safe, hygienic, and simple treatment for permanent hair removal is music to our ears!
Additionally, electrolysis is a wonderful compliment to laser hair reduction. Laser is ineffective for hair that is smaller in diameter and lighter in colour, but electrolysis treats these hairs, too.
We are one of the very few specialist clinics in New Zealand that use the state-of-the-art Computerised Electrolysis Silhouette Tone Blend ST250 machine.
Computerised electrolysis is fast and highly effective. It is virtually pain-free and very gentle on the skin. Single-use disposable needles are used to remove unwanted hair.
Electrolysis can be performed on most parts of the body, including the nipple, stomach, face, underarm, and bikini line. The only hairs of the body that can't be treated are on areas such as the inside of the nose, ears, eyelids, and genital region. Electrolysis can also remove the hairs left behind from laser.
To maximise the success of your electrolysis, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! The more water you drink on the days leading up to the session, and on the day itself, the more effective your treatment will be.
Hydrated follicles conduct the current and heat much more effectively than dry follicles do. This makes for quicker and easier probing.
