Permanent Hair Reduction for Fine, Downy Vellous Hair
The DMK Alkaline Wash system is a unique treatment designed to reduce fine, downy hair, suitable for all areas of the face and body. A patch test is needed prior to treatment, and a course of treatments will be needed to achieve and maintain results.
Fine, downy hair, whether dark or light in colour, can densely cover the sides of the face, chin and neck or most of the face. It is also commonly found on areas of the body such as the abdomen, lower back, or shoulders.
This type of hair is very difficult to remove with other methods as the growth is usually dense and would take a long time to treat with electrolysis. It is also not suitable to be treated with IPL or Laser because it usually has no colour (melanin) for the light to target.
Alkaline Wash treatment can remove large areas of hair in one treatment without discomfort, in comparison to other hair-removal systems. It also works well when combined with electrolysis and laser, which are suitable for terminal (thicker/darker) hairs.
After your first treatment, the hair will grow back at its normal rate, but as treatments progress the hair regrowth rate will become slower and the hair will weaken, usually resulting in a permanent reduction over a period of time.
The treatment is completely pain-free, however in some cases the area can appear red and warm which is normal and will subside after a short period of time. This will be discussed in detail with you at your patch test and consultation appointment.
At The Skin and Beauty Clinic we offer a combination of IPL, Electrolysis, and Alkaline Wash treatment to target your specific hair reduction needs, and will develop an individual treatment plan with you to help you achieve ‘your best skin possible’.
