What to look for in Laser Technology

OPL also known as Optimized Pulsed Light is considered to be the gold standard for hair removal.  Since lasers’ introduction in the 1990’s, the technology has advanced considerably. OPL is the next step above IPL Intense Pulsed Light.

It allows for treatment regardless of skin type, hair colour or hair thickness. State of the art OPL equipment is utilized to remove hair on the face, chest, underarms, back, legs &/ bikini line.

OPL is appreciated by medical professionals and clients alike as its two-fold approach removes hair with minimal treatment time. Its priority is minimizing and eliminating pain whilst maximising convenience and satisfaction with results. SAI offers OPL laser technology in the Sandton clinic.
