FAQ

 

DO YOU DO LASER OR IPL AND IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE?

We perform Laser! And YES! There is so much that differs between these devices, yes they both will remove hair in the same heat-light-destruction but the way they do this is very different. We use a 755nm Laser that is the optimal hair removal wavelength to target the hair follicle. During your consultation we will discuss the difference between these 2 modalities.

 

MY SKIN IS SO SENSITIVE WILL YOUR PRODUCTS HELP?

Absolutely! Dermaviduals was originally designed to treat eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis and works with the principal of Corneotherapy which is why it is the best treatment for sensitive skins.

 

WHAT CAUSES ACNE?

There is not one thing that will cause Acne, Acne can be caused from a variety of factors such as hormones, overproduction of oil, a blockage in the hair follicle, diet, digestion, stress and the list continues. This is why we ALWAYS perform a skin consult first to understand the initial cause or trigger of your concern.

 

 I HAVE BLONDE/GREY/RED HAIR WILL LASER WORK?

No. With Laser or IPL there needs to be a target within the skin to treat.

This can either be Colour, Water or Blood. With Blonde hair there is not target, therefore there is no result. Laser works best for clients with light skin and dark hair.

 

WHAT IS CORNEOTHERAPY?

Corneotherapy is aimed at the recovery of the stratum corneum (the first layer of the skin). It improves the skins barrier function and overall homeostasis of the skin. For the purposes of preventive Corneotherapy, itis essential to avoid skin care products with harmful substances such as irritants and allergens and to select the appropriate skin care substances to individually adapt the skin care products to the specific skin problems. Think of Corneotherapy as if you had holes all in your roof at home. Would you be living in a happy environment? You wouldn’t replace or try to fix everything inside before fixing the roof right?

 

WHY ARE SOME CLINICS CHEAPER FOR LASER THEN OTHERS?

Cheaper is not always better. With the very best technology, cooling devices, safety, regular service and maintenance of equipment for correct collaboration to ensure parameters are true, training therapists and keeping  them  up to date requires a lot of money and time. If we were to offer extremely discounted services, we would have to skip a step in our line. As Black Diamond Clinic was designed with the client as our priority, this will not be done. If you find a cheaper treatment elsewhere, simply ask the questions and always check the recommended treatment times, intervals, cooling devices, safety and therapist training. It could work out to be more expensive in the long run.
