Frequently Asked Questions
How it works?
Allegro Super Fast Motion Technology combines low fluence super fast pulses to target and destroy the hair follicles responsible for hair growth, without harming surrounding tissue.
The ‘sweeping technique’ allows for continuous motion movement and cooling resulting in a faster treatment time with less pain and discomfort. This is in contrast to previous technology which caused peak energies and required cooling prior to the treatment in order to reduce adverse side effects.
Allegro advanced skin cooling system comes from the Sapphire Tip on the hand piece combined with a special in-built freezing/refrigeration system. The benefits of a Sapphire Tip increases patient comfort, <em>virtually eliminating any pain.

Are There Any Side Effects?
No. there are no adverse side effects. Your treatment provider will discuss any necessary pre and post treatment care before the procedure.
The first effective technique of permanent hair removal invented was electrolysis. This technique was devised by an ophthalmologist in 1875 to solve the problems of ingrown eyelashes.
Modalities of Electrolysis are:
Direct current:(or galvanic) works by changing the chemical composition of the papilla.
Thermolysis: the use of alternating current, usually in the form of high-frequency radio waves. This mode of electrology uses heat produced by friction to achieve permanent hair removal.
Blend: The blend modality of electrolysis combines direct and alternating currents. The current may be used together or sequentially.
The Blend is the most effective method of combining the two modalities it creates a chemical and thermal effect to destroy the hair.
Removing hair by electrolysis is a slow progressive treatment. It is the treatment of choice when it is inadvisable to perform Intense Pulse Light treatments.
Most Frequently Asked Questions:
Does Electrology Always Work?
This question is usually asked when patients see hair appearing in the treated area. Hair that appears in the treated area in six weeks or less, is not necessarily hair growing from a treated follicle but that of a previously dormant follicle. Seven to eight weeks would be required for a hair to grow from the treated follicle.
How much Hair can be Removed in one treatment?
The amount of hair that be removed in one treatment depends upon the sensitivity of the patient, the skin and the proficiency of the electrologist. The first treatment should be no longer than 15 minutes. A patient may eventually receive up to one hour of treatment at a time.
Does Electrology Treatment Hurt?
The sensation is less than in tweezing. The most sensitive areas are the upper lip and the inner thighs. Most patients are surprised as they expect to feel much more. Some patients even relax enough to fall asleep.
During your consultation, the estimated time frame for treating your superfluous hair will be discussed and a time frame for treatment will be outlined.
It is important that you follow all after care instructions to receive a good outcome.
We use the roll on waxing system of hair removal combined with a special pot wax for those more sensitive areas. Pre and Post waxing solutions are used to sanitize and anaesthetize the skin.
We take pride in the professional waxing service and have allowed generous time to ensure the quality of treatment. In cases where hair growth is strong, extra time is required and the fee will change accordingly.
Regular waxing treatments are required to ensure a smooth finish, it is best to schedule your waxing appointments every 3-4 weeks.
All treatments are performed safely and efficiently in
accordance with national health standards. Our therapists use gloves and disposable spatulas.
After waxing your skin is very delicate and the following guidelines will help to protect your skin:
Do not swim for 24 hours
Play any sports or exercise that causes your skin to become over heated.
Wash the area gently with medicated soap.
Apply recommended after-wax lotion or cream.
