The Danné Alkaline Wash system is a remarkable treatment designed to reduce fine, downy hair. This type of hair is very difficult to remove, the hair growth is usually dense and would take a long time to treat with electrolysis and is also not suitable to be treated with IPL or Laser. The advantage of Alkaline Wash is that you can remove large areas of hair in one treatment with no discomfort as with other hair-removal systems. It also works well when combined with electrolysis and laser, which are suitable for the stronger hairs.
After the first treatment, the hair will grow back at its normal rate, but as treatments progress the regrowth rate will become slower, usually resulting in a permanent loss over a period of time.
The treatment takes approximately half an hour and a patch test is carried out on the area to be treated, which ensures that your skin is suitable for the Alkaline Wash treatment. The treatment is completely pain-free however in some cases the area can appear red and warm which is normal and will subside in a short period of time.
All areas of the face and body may be treated as long as the hair is fine and downy. The treatments will be approximately 2 weeks apart to start with and then go onto a month apart and then longer periods of time as the hair starts to reduce in growth.
A full consultation and patch test will be carried out at least 24 hours before treatment, this is £50 and is redeemable against treatments. You must inform your therapist if you become pregnant or if you take any medication or vitamins in-between treatments.
