Hair Removal Solutions for Everyone with Innovative Technology - Hair No More Hair Removal System

Hair Removal Solutions for Everyone with Innovative Technology

Hair removal has come a long way since the days when a person’s options were shaving or waxing and that was all.  Electrolysis came along and offered people a permanent way to remove hair.  Now there is Hair No More, a revolution new way to reduce hair permanently that offers a fast, cheaper and completely painless alterative to other forms of hair removal.  We are proud to say that we have bought in to this new technology and are having a launch event on 19th September.  As different hair removal methods suit different people, we offer waxing, electrolysis and Hair No More treatments at Sarah Hurst Skin and Beauty salon in Brighton.

Complete Comfort

The high energy levels of traditional hair removing lasers means using them can be quite uncomfortable for some people.  Similarly, with waxing, some people find it a bit sore in certain areas.  With Hair No More, there is absolutely no discomfort as the machine uses low energy light which rapidly pulses to target the hair follicles to prevent hair regrowth.

No Going Back

An important consideration when choosing which hair removal method would best suit you is to think about whether you are absolutely sure you want the removal or reduction to be permanent as electrolysis and Hair No More are irreversible so waxing might be a better option if you’re not 100% sure.

Super Fast

Waxing and Hair No More have something in common, however. They’re quick.  Electrolysis works by targeting each hair individually so is ideal for dealing with hormonal hair growth but can be quite time consuming on larger areas.  Treatments using Hair No More take 20 minutes to reduce a medium sized area like half legs, arms and face, they take 30 minutes to reduce hair from large areas like full legs, back or full Hollywood bikini area and just 10 minutes to treat small areas like underarms or half face.

Go Large

Being so quick and painless means Hair No More is the ideal treatment to reduce hair from larger areas.  Electrolysis can then be used to remove any hairs that escape the Hair No More treatment.

Cost Comparison

Even though people using Hair No More to permanently reduce hair will have to undergo roughly 8 treatments to achieve a good level of hair clearance, the cost of, say, a Brazilian with Hair No More, is cheaper than a year and a half’s worth of waxing.  Bearing in mind that this is permanent hair reduction, it works out much cheaper over time.  Due to electrolysis being quite a slow process, it can become quite expensive to treat large areas but ideal for smaller ones.

If you’re still not sure which of our hair removal methods would best suit your needs, speak to one of our experts and they’d be more than happy to advise you.  Our Hair No More launch event on Tuesday 19th September from 6pm to 8pm at our Brighton salon is a great opportunity to see this new technology up close, talk to our team and take advantage of some great special offers.  Call 01273 270709 or email sarah@sarahhurst.co.uk to let us know you’re coming or for more information.

Beauty is More than Skin Deep with Observ Skin Diagnostics

Back in the day, if a beauty therapist wanted to closely examine your skin to decide which treatments would be best, they would look closely at it usually using a bright light.  Fortunately, now we can look deeper.  The Observ Skin Diagnostics machine we have in our Brighton salon uses a broader range of light than the Wood’s lamp many salons use so can give a clearer picture of exactly what is going on with your skin on the surface and beneath it so we can tackle problems before they’ve even fully surfaced and deal with existing conditions on a deeper level.

How it Works

Like a Wood’s lamp, the Observ machine uses the fluorescence in the skin to detect underlying problems.  This works as different types of skin condition can be identified by the colour and patterns of fluorescent that are revealed under true UV light.  What makes the Observ different to other skin diagnostic systems is that it uses a wide range of light types to reveal a broader range of problems.  Light types include a similar type to the Wood’s lamps, true UV, parallel-polarization mode, cross-polarization mode and a complexion analysis mode.  Pictures taken under these lights are uploaded to an iPad so they can be analysed by one of our skin experts.  Using the iPad means we can zoom in to get a really close look at certain areas and store the pictures.

What it Reveals

Using all these different types of light and magnification allows the Observ machine to diagnose problems associated with sun damage, pigmentation and melasma pigmentation as well as the following:

• Porphyrin in acne and comedones

• Free oil flow

• Plugged pores

• Areas of keratinized skin

• Areas with diminished circulation

• Dehydrated skin

• Vascular conditions

• Rosacea

• Skin irritations

• Areas of lipid-dry skin

• Milia 

• Area with collagen loss

• Sensitive and thinned skin areas

• Wrinkle formations

• Fine skin surface texture

• Fine line patterns

• Microrelief


Why We Use It

Once we have identified exactly which issues your skin has, we can design a regime of products and treatments which are perfectly tailored to your needs.  Using this depth of analysis suits the way we work because we don’t just treat surface problems, we use treatments to penetrate deeply into the lower levels of the skin and vitamin supplements to nourish and restore the skin from within.  When used as part of the IIAA 100 Day Reset Programme, we take more pictures at the end of the programme and compare these to original to demonstrate how effective the treatment plan has been.

When you attend a skin analysis at our salon in Brighton, we use the Observ machine and then talk you through the pictures to show you everything that is going on with your skin.  This is a long thorough consultation where our experts point out all the various features of your skin and make recommendations to address any concerns you have.  They will answer all your questions to help you gain a deeper understanding of your skin and its needs.  To take full advantage of all the benefits offered by our Observ Skin Diagnostics system book a skin analysis here or call 01273 270709.
