Laser Express uses a combination of both Laser and IPL Machines suitable for all skin types and colours. Our Laser machines treat for deeper facial capillaries and veins, fractional erbium resurfacing and some stubborn hair reduction. While our IPL machines treats hair, skin rejuvenation and super fine capillaries.
Our consultant, Lucie has been working with Laser and IPL machines since 2002. Lucie has an International Diploma in beauty therapy as well as several qualifications associated with Laser and IPL. Allure Skin and Beauty offer a number of services as listed below.
IPL is effectively trying to destroy the blood vessel that feeds the hair papillae, by using controlled heat and light sources, thus resulting in hair reduction. Usually a series of treatments is required to achieve long lasting results – this is usually a minimum of 4-6 and possibly up to 8-10 treatments.
When the light is emitted from the hand piece, it tries to detect a dark chromophore below the surface, in this case a hair shaft. For this reason, IPL is only suitable for dark hair, as it cannot detect a chromophore in white or grey hair. Ideally, fair skin is better to treat, as the light by-passes the chromophore in dark skin (melanin) and goes straight to the hair papillae. However, at laser express we use hand pieces suitable for dark, tanned even black skin. For this reason it is important to know what equipment your operator is using.
Pigmentation, solar lentigo’s, age spots, all a thing of the past now with IPL Skin Rejuvenation. Years of sun damage and exposure can be treated in a series of 4-6 treatments using our Lux G and Lux Y hand pieces for superior skin rejuvenation. We usually recommend treatments every 2-4 weeks and it is expected that the skin surface will take on a brown, flaky appearance as underlying melanin makes its way to the skins surface. Equally important is the use of SPF 30+, and trying to avoid any more direct sun exposure during and after treatment. Highly recommended is the use of exfoliant and serums to regenerate.

Due to the delicate nature of the Capillaries and Venous system, Laser Express only treats Facial Capillaries. Using the Lux G Handpiece, we selectively target the capillary, using heat and light to thermalize and expand the capillary wall. In some instances, we are able to diminish the capillary immediately, in other cases, it may take 2-3 treatments.
When the capillary is still visible, it may take 2- 3 days for redness to disappear, then a slight brown or flaking will take place. With the Laser Express method, we do not use ice in any of our vascular treatments; we find this inhibits good results. Most importantly though, it is essential to use the correct fluence and joules to avoid burning and possible long term damage to the skin. SPF 30+ is an essential part of our treatment and correct aftercare is a must. Treatment is usually fortnightly or monthly.
