What is BLONDE HAIR LASER REMOVAL?
The usual methods of laser hair removal are not effective enough to identify and penetrate white, blonde, red or grey hairs. Luckily, Nirvana Beauty Laser clinics has a procedure using the latest techniques and technologies meaning those with light/blonde/grey hairs don’t need to miss out! A different procedure wasn’t therefore developed and clinically tested by ADeNA Manufacturers in France in 2004 before being patented (*) in 2005. This patent-protected procedure is exclusively reserved for users of ADeNA machines available at Nirvana Beauty Laser Clinic s.< Historically, laser hair removal has only been suited to people with light skin and dark hair. This is because lasers are most attracted to darker colours, making the lack of pigments in blonde a huge stumbling block.
However, Blonde Hair removal finally overcomes this hurdle. Purpose-designed to target light coloured pigments, the Long Pulse laser effectively destroys blonde hair follicles while also impairing regrowth.*

How does BLONDE HAIR REMOVAL work?
Blonde/ grey hair has no pigment like dark hair to attract the laser’s heat, making traditional laser hair removal for pale skin unreliable on blonde or even grey hair. Area to be lasered is waxed to open up the follicles and stimulate blood circulation and bring the blood flow to the hair follicle. The Adena IPL heats to blood to a certain temperature. The IPL works like a flash-lamp, sending out scattered wavelengths of light. This destroys the hair cells.
