IPL is a third generation intense pulsed light system used for permanent hair growth reduction. We would recommend 3-6 treatments with 4-8 week intervals between each treatment for optimal results.

How it works

The visible light source used in this procedure is attracted to melanin, which is found in the hair. Because there is more melanin found in darker hair, the darker the hair is, the more effective the treatment.

During the treatment an optical coupling gel is applied to the skin. This helps the light to be absorbed into the skin and to protect the skin from burning. The applicator is pressed onto the skin and the light energy is absorbed into the hair causing a heat reaction to destroy the follicle.

The IPL system uses intense pulsed light to safely and effectively reduce unwanted hair. This 4-8 week interval will allow the hairs to have re-grown and improve the effect of the treatment. When you come in for your patch test, hair is needed on the treatment area. Sun exposure should be avoided 30 days before and after the treatment.

When we treat an area all 3 Anagen, Catagen and Telogen hair growth stages are targeted, however only hair in the Anagen (growth) stage can be treated successfully as this is where the hair is attached to the blood supply and is most likely to be destroyed.

Look as young as you feel with laser wrinkle treatment that reduces unwanted signs of ageing, including wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.

Collagen and elastin make up the support structure in our skin. As we age that support structure weakens and wrinkles form. Laser wrinkle treatment uses powerful laser technology to renew the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. It works fast to minimize wrinkles and improve the skin on the neck and cheeks , smooth away smokers lines around the mouth, and even reduce wrinkles and crow's feet around the eyes.

Laser wrinkle treatment smoothes your skin without changing your looks. You look like yourself - but with more youthful-looking skin.

Just one treatment is all it takes to diminish the deepest lines, without surgery and with long-lasting results.

We can treat:-

  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Crow's feet
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Frown lines
  • Lipstick lines
  • Smoker's lines
  • Facial wrinkles

How does it work?

Short pulses of laser light reach deeply into the skin's sub-layers, treating the aging support structure. Then the body's natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin- the crucial building blocks of smooth, youthful skin.

How long does it take?

The procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Does it hurt?

Your treatment provider may offer ways to make this a comfortable experience. Since everyone is different and depends on the level of treatment needed, it is best to discuss all of your optiosn with your laser treatment provider.

How many treatments will I need?

Most people are happy after only one treatment session.

Thread veins are very fine veins that are often visible on the cheeks, nose and legs. They are very common, and can be red, blue or purple in colour. If you have thread veins that you are very conscious of, and would like clearer skin, Laser is a great way to do this. Many people can feel uncomfortable and try to cover thread veins with make up or other products.

About thread vein treatment

Laser treatment is often used to treat thread veins on the face. The veins absorb the laser light and are destroyed. High intensity light treatment can be very effective, but as it takes time for the veins to break down, it may be a few weeks before the results are fully apparent. A course of treatments may be recommended to achieve the best results.

Unwanted tattoos are a common problem for many people who mistakenly believe that they have to live with their old ink and the embarrassment it causes. At Star Advanced Beauty we use the most advanced laser tattoo removal platform available and over a number of sessions we can remove the marks of the past and give you a clean canvas once more. At Star Advanced Beauty we use the AW3 Flash Combo which is one of the most advanced laser tattoo removal machines around today. This machine safely targets a wide range of colours from black, blue and red, to orange, purple and even the most difficult colours like green and sky blue. No matter how colourful or heavy your tattoo, we're confident that we can make it a thing of the past.

How it works

The laser tattoo removal works using very short pulses of energy targeting the tattoo ink without any damage to the surrounding tissue of the skin. The pigment is broken into tiny particles which are then removed by the body's immune system.

FAQ

3-10 sessions are required for this treatment depending on your skin type and how much ink is in the tattoo.


Will my tattoo 100% go?

We cannot guarantee that every tattoo removal will be 100% successful but we will always do everything possible to ensure that the best results are achieved for our clients.

This treatment is one of the most advanced laser treatments available for refining enlarged pores, reducing oil secretion, removing blackheads and whitening. The treatment enhances the skin’s radiance and promotes a smooth, glowing complexion.

How does it work?

When performing the laser treatment, a layer of carbon paste is applied to the skin and allowed to dry for a period of 15 – 20 minutes. Then, the fractional laser is used to heat and cause an implosion of the carbon particles. The laser light is absorbed by the carbon paste focusing the laser energy on the epidermis. As the laser moves across the skin the carbon paste is gently vacuumed up, exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in pores. A visible difference should be noticed with one individual treatment. After the treatment a cool Aloe Vera gel will be applied to the area. Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a new non invasive and pain-free laser treatment that is excellent for treating minor skin imperfections:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightens dilated pores
  • Reduces acne, scars and post acne discoloration
  • Removes dead skin cells from the superficial epidermal layer
  • Improves skin texture
  • Restores skin integrity and radiance
  • Stimulates collagen growth
  • Clears pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads

Does Laser Carbon Facial Treatment hurt?

No. The treatment is non invasive and gentle - most people describe the sensation as a light tingling feeling. The treatment takes approx 45 minutes from start to finish (please allow an extra 15 minutes for consultation).

A test to a small area of the client's skin is carried out to determine suitability. This must be done a week prior to full treatment.

Aftercare

After the treatment, the skin may appear slightly sore or red. Aloe Vera gel will be applied for cooling. Any redness will soon go down and you will begin to notice the results almost immediately after your first session. Avoid heat stimulations such as hot baths or showers, saunas, and steam. Avoid cardiovascular exercise and swimming as the chemicals in the water may cause irritation. At STAR we are always available to provide continuing advice and support even after your final session is complete.

Side Effects

The most common side effect is a redness of the skin (called mild erythema) which normally subsides a few hours after the treatment. In some cases it may take a little longer, and in very rare cases small blisters can occur. 100% Aloe Vera gel can be applied to the skin as an effective treatment.


Preparing for your treatment

  • Avoid any other hair removal methods such as waxing, threading or hair removal creams for 6 weeks before the treatment.
  • Avoid sun exposure 30 days prior to treatment. We will discuss any medications in detail at your consultation.

Please note: All laser treatments require a patch test 7 days before treatment.
