If unwanted hair is leaving you short of confidence, then we can help you with this incredible treatment. Hair V Go is an advanced, ground-breaking and painless solution for removing excessive vellus hair from the face and neck areas.
Suitability: only suitable for vellus hair, otherwise known as ‘peach fuzz’ and so, it should not be used for coarser, darker hairs.
Areas: face and neck areas with peach fuzz.
Results: such a treatment is gradual and cumulative, meaning that results can become more and more noticeable with each session until your desire outcome is reached.
How it works: Hair V Go is a high-pH treatment which targets the keratin found in our hair. A special cream is applied to your problem area, which in turn breaks down the keratin and dissolves the hair deep within its follicles. The stem cells in the hair are also gradually disabled, thus reducing any repeat growth.

Suitability: SHR Hair Reduction is suitable for both men and women and it can be performed on all skin types.
Areas: face and body areas, including larger sections.
Results: the results are instant, however, as each SHR Hair reduction treatment affects only approximately 20% of the hair, repeat sessions will be required to reach your desired outcome.
How it works: SHR hair reduction uses selected wavelengths of low energy light, which are rapidly pulsed into the skin at 180 times per minute. Those targeted hair follicles are gently heated during this process and terminally damaged. In short, it prevents any re-growth of the hair.

Choosing your laser hair removal treatment carefully.
In laser hair removal treatments, a diode laser beam penetrates your skin and targets the pigmented hair follicle. As a result, the laser beam heats the cell of the unwanted hairs to disrupt, thin and weaken it. Think of it like this, if IPL is like a torch, laser hair removal is like a laser pen; it is much more targeted.
Amazingly, even the most stubborn of hairs are affected during laser hair removal, but it is important to use the right device for each skin type to avoid adverse reactions and skin damage. This is why at VieDerma we emphasise that safety protocols, training and experience of practitioners are of upmost importance before you proceed, and patch tests are a must.
✅ Pros: Minor side effects, no ingrown hairs, precise, effective, long-lasting results. Laser is suitable for dark skin tones.
Laser can be the perfect skin-vestment for a working, busy woman.
As women, we encounter many daily challenges and tasks, so why not remove the long-winded process of shaving from the equation?
Whatever skin type or skin tone you have, re-growing hairs can be a nuisance. I mean, hair does grow everywhere. From pesky baby hairs, fine peach fuzz and uneven bikini lines, shaving needs to be done frequently and effectively to achieve the glossy look we want, and the true question is, who actually has time for that?
And, not to forget, if you do manage to accomplish this long and impressive feat, you are exposed to a variety of other issues associated with shaving. The dreaded discomfort that comes with re-growth… razor burns, cuts, in-growing hairs, rashes, you name it, we understand what you are going through.
So, then what do you do? What is the alternative?
Some may say waxing. But waxing is not only expensive, it is painful, and results are minimal. It may take a bit longer for hairs to re-grow, as opposed to shaving, but you also get added ingrown hairs, which means angry irritated skin, and it does not really reduce the overall re-growth. Oh, and we cannot forget about the hair in-between stage as the hairs need to grow long enough to wax again. It is not worth it!
Ultimately, how can targeted hair removal treatments give you smooth and hairless skin?
The main point to take away is that they target hair reduction at the source. Whatever the medium, be it lasers or high-pH pastes, these treatments effectively remove hair whilst simultaneously reducing regrowth and in-time stopping hair-regrowth all together.
Last year, over 1 million people – all exhausted from waxing, plucking and waxing – booked in for laser hair removal to eliminate unwanted hair for good. It is recommended you do not sunbathe between sessions – and the season’s plummeting temperatures will be taking care of that.
