Alkaline Wash for Hair Removal by Danne

Are you looking for a long term hair removal solution that is virtually painless and really effective?
Look no further~ Alkaline Wash is the latest way to significantly reduce hair everywhere on the body, especially effective for downy peach fuzz on the face. This unique system requires a consultation, during which ~your Danné Technician will ensure there are no contraindications & the cost for your area of concern is discussed. The process itself is remarkably simple and it takes about 15-20 minutes for smaller body parts and for larger areas up to 45 minutes. Alkaline Hair Wash does NOT promote thicker hair growth or stimulate dormant hair follicles.
When the product is applied it penetrates down into the follicle and dissolves the hair protein, weaken & ultimately destroying it.
Q: How many treatments do I need?
A: Every client's hair physiology is so different ~but the process is progressive and results are evident after only 2 or 3 treatments.
The more you do the treatments the less you need to... unlike waxing there is no pain or sticky residue left behind. Post treatment home care is critical & necessary ~products to be used are dependant on area of body and clients skin condition. The first couple of times the hair may feel prickly, but as the treatments progress this diminishes.
Q: Is alkaline bad for my skin?
A: No, Alkaline Wash is used in many of Danne's skin revision systems and is in no way bad for the skin. We always finish the treatment with the appropriate products to restore optimal skin health & your home care products will continue the healing process.
Q: Will my hair grow back thicker or darker?
A: It is physically impossible for your hair to grow back thicker or darker as the Alkaline Wash weakens and eventually reduces the hair growth. Regardless of hair colour may it be blonde,white, grey or dark, Alkaline Wash can still be done.
 Q: How often will I need to have this done?
A: When you initially start, you will have the treatment as often as you would wax the area. As the hair growth weakens, the hair is reduced and your treatments will become further and further apart. These treatments are progressive; there is no one quick fix treatment that gets rid of hair permanently.
Q: Can I wear makeup?
A:  Yes you can wear makeup~ about 8 hours after Alkaline Treatment.
Q: What are some of the benefits of having alkaline wash?
A: Alkaline Wash is better for removing facial hair as it will improve the skin texture and colour at the same time. If waxing causes the area to go darker, AlkalineWash will lighten the area being depilated. If you suffer ingrown hairs or folliculitis it will eradicate this concern and prevent reoccurrence. Alkaline Wash weakens hair growth and over time drastically reduces it. 
If any of the following is active or present prior to an alkaline wash~  please inform your Danne Technician:
    -    Any redness or irritation, inflamed areas or conditions on the skin. Including eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
    -   Cuts or cracked open skin, moles and or any skin lesions.
    -   Any existing Underlying pigmentation that may be apparent from previous conditions
This is a remarkable treatment for hair removal. The advantages of AlkalineWash are;
1. It is possible to remove large areas in one treatment, with little or no discomfort.
2. The hair does not have to be a certain length, like with waxing, so treatments can be done when you need to have them done (minimum 10 days apart)
3.  It will not cause ingrown hairs, in fact if this a concern for you, over time Alkaline wash eliminates them.
4.It can be done anywhere on the body except eyebrows. Even the most sensitive of skins can tolerate this treatment, remarkably, a client who has very bad acne on their face can enjoy the results, with no side effects.
5. Often a client on medication cannot have waxing done, with the exception of a few medications, most clients can safely have this done with no side effects.
6. With continued treatments the hair growth significantly reduces in thickness & quantity.
