Few are lucky enough to be blessed with hair only in the right places. In addition to normal bodily hair growth in unwanted places such as the under-arm of bikini line, some of us suffer from excessive facial or bodily hair. Through our promise to deliver excellence in aesthetic medical services to all our patients, at Aesthetic Virtue we employ cutting edge technology to manage unwanted hair.
The eLase system with Motif™ by Syneron – Candela provides a pain-free, safe experience requiring reduced treatment time. This is the safest, most effective and most comfortable method of permanent hair reduction currently available.Traditional methods such as shaving and waxing tend to be very expensive in the long run while being time consuming and offer no permanent solutions. They also tend to be painful treatments often associated with many unpleasant side-effects.
All our painless hair removal treatments are carried out by very experienced and professional licensed laser therapists who are committed to delivering an excellent service and providing you with the best results possible. They are very sympathetic and all round pleasant and approachable, thus allowing you to voice any concerns and have all questions answered.
The diode cools the skin of the area to be treated while the laser warms the target hair follicles. Radio-frequency is drawn towards the target deep inside the dermis (the middle layer of skin where the hair follicle is) and both energies work to attack both the inside and the outside of the target. This method combines both safe and effective levels of laser and bipolar RF energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth, creating a smoother and softer appearance. Motif™ Hair Removal powered by elōs Technology offers safe and effective hair removal treatments on the widest variety of skin and hair types. The high frequency and lower energy delivery provides virtually pain free treatments with far shorter treatment times than competitive systems.

A tan (fake tan or real tanning secondary to sun or sun-bed exposure) is to be avoided at all costs for a few weeks before and after the treatment, as this will increase the risk of burning. It is very important to let your therapist know if you're not sure.
The hairs will fall out of their own accord after a few days. Any hair growth after that will be new hair (in a different stage of the hair cycle – hence the need for multiple treatments).
Very rarely, the treatment might not be as effective as it usually is in most individuals.
Avoid hot baths, showers, saunas or swimming for at least 24 hours.
Do not apply, make-up or lotions to the area treated for 24 hours.
Avoid sun exposure or sun-beds for at least three weeks (and avoid the sun for 6 weeks prior to a treatment).
Avoid other medical or cosmetic treatments to the same area for 2 weeks.
Tanned skins (secondary to sun or sun-bed exposure)
The concurrent use of photosensitive medications
Photosensitive skin conditions
Tattoos or permanent make-up on the areas to be treated
Active skin conditions in the area to be treated
Koebnerizing skin conditions (such as psoriasis or vitiligo where the skin condition may develop where skin trauma or irritation occurs)
A history of skin cancer
Some forms of epilepsy
Pregnancy and breast-feeding (although the treatment is safe, no studies have been carried out on its effects on pregnancy so it is advised to wait until the first check up after birth).
Because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, the effect can be reduced on red hair, and may not work on grey or white hair.

All my questions were addressed, treatment options, outcomes, potential side effects and after-care instructions were very clear. And the procedure was far less painful than I had imagined!
A gentle hand… you might have very possibly cured my needle-phobia finally! And thank goodness, as everybody thinks I'm looking younger and fresher now!
A clinic that insists on natural results! Fabulous! Now I'm loving the compliments.
Dr Raina has been my doctor for the last 18 months, and she will be for many months longer.
Recently my 20 year old daughter (who has beautiful full lips) told me she wanted to get her lips enlarged and that she had already spoken to another doctor about it, who was willing to do it for her. I took her along with me to discuss it with Dr Raina who explained to her that her natural lips are very nice and in proportion with the rest of her face. She mentioned that more volume will ruin the proportions and she would look 'done'. We are both very grateful for the honesty there.
A very professional, honest and straightforward doctor with surgical skills to match! My right earlobe split 6 years ago, and I was too anxious to have it repaired.
Now, I have no idea why I didn't get it done sooner!
After discussing the pros and cons of removing the mole on my face, I finally underwent the procedure. Three months on, I am very pleased with the result. I appreciate the no frills honesty and straightforwardness.
Highly professional… I will certainly be recommending you!
