Frequently Asked Questions
To ensure that your visit with us is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, we would kindly request that the following be adhered to.
We would ask all clients to arrive 10 minutes prior to your treatment to allow all necessary paperwork/consultation forms to be completed & therefor not cut into your precious treatment time. Late arrival will result in shortened treatment time and in some cases your treatment will have to be rescheduled. If you are running late please call ahead to let us know and we will endeavor to accommodate you.
We strongly advise you book all appointments, be they big or small, well in advance to avoid disappointment.
In order to accommodate all of our clients to the best of our ability, any cancellation of treatment(s) must be made 24 hours in advance, failure to do so will incur a 100% charge for the service you had booked.

Laser Hair Removal
Speak to one of our Luminess professional laser consultants today to get one step closer to achieving your laser goals.
Laser hair removal is ideal for anyone with dark pigmented hair who dreams of being free of waxing and shaving. Laser hair removal is also the perfect antidote to anyone suffering from ingrown hairs as a result of other types of hair removal.
This will depend on the area being treated,larger areas will take a longer amount of time compared to smaller areas for example; A full leg laser treatment can take between 15-20 minutes, compare that to less than 5 minutes for an upper lip laser treatment.
Generally treatments are very quick meaning that you could easily pop in on your lunch break without interfering with the rest of your day.
Clients report a very mild discomfort although this does differ from client to client and also depends on the area being treated but all in all no laser hair removal is a very comfortable treatment. Our GentleMax Pro laser machine has the added bonus of an inbuilt cooling device meaning treatments are not only fast but gentle on the skin too.
We recommend a minimum of 6 treatments for any laser hair removal treatment as this will allow us to monitor your progress and assess if any additional treatments may be needed.
No. Waxing, tweezing, threading and bleaching is strictly forbidden whilst you are having laser hair removal treatments. Shaving is the only hair removal method allowed during your laser hair removal journey.
