Complete 12 cycles within a month to get £30 cash back on your Octopus Energy account.​

 

Who can take part?

For now Powerloop is only available in areas where the local electricity grid is managed by UK Power Networks. The pink area in the map below shows ​their working area. If you're not sure, use the UKPN postcode checker to see who manages your local grid by clicking here

You need to own your home and have a driveway or off-street parking for us to install the Wallbox unit.

You'll need to lease a Nissan LEAF from Octopus Electric Vehicles. The Nissan LEAF is currently the only fully-electric car with a V2G compatible battery, meaning it can export as well as import.

You'll need to have an Octopus Energy account. We need to measure how much electricity you use, and how much you export back to the grid. If you're not already an Octopus customer, we'll get you signed up with 100% renewable electricity.

 

You'll need to have a smart meter (we'll install this free of charge if you don't have one we can communicate with already).

 

Frequent asked questions

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?


Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. Laser hair removal is an extremely effective, virtually pain-free alternative to shaving, waxing or epilation. At Oasis Laser + Aesthetics, we use advanced Soprano ICE technology to administer laser hair removal, guaranteeing premium results every time, and statistically proven to be more effective than standard IPL treatment. Laser hair removal can be safely used on a variety of both large and small areas, including the face, underarms, bikini line and legs.




DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?


Soprano ICE laser hair removal is the only clinically proven method of laser hair removal that is virtually painless. The unique laser wavelengths of Soprano ICE are able to effectively damage the hair follicle, whilst preventing injury and pain to the surrounding tissue. At the same time integrated ICE tech cools the skin surface, preventing superficial burns and the sensation of pain.




HOW DOES PAINLESS LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS?


Using Soprano Ice by Alma Lasers, the treated areas will have the laser head pass back and forth multiple times, to provide controlled laser rays to target, and kill off, unwanted hair. These laser rays essentially cook off the hair follicle to a point of destruction, all without damage to the skin. The resulting damage to the hair follicles reduce the body’s ability to grow and hold hair in the treated area(s).




IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL RIGHT FOR YOU?


Men and women of all skin types can benefit from the best laser hair removal in Lower Mainland. Whether you have light hair and fair skin or have darker skin and thicker hair, our team of highly trained professionals can help determine which laser treatment is right for you. Those who have white, grey, blonde and red hair are advised against any kind of laser because the hairs can not be targeted to destruction. The hair removal laser generates a specific wavelength which can only be absorbed by a specific type of pigment, which is why laser matching is so important. Incorrect laser matching could result in burns, hyper and hypopigmentation. That’s why it’s essential to have such a highly trained and experienced team of professionals as ours at Oasis Laser.




HOW MANY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS DO I NEED?


The average person who wishes to do laser hair removal is recommended a base of 6-8 sessions in the same treatment area. Many patients wonder why there are 6-8 sessions recommended to complete the laser hair removal treatment. The reason for multiple laser hair removal sessions is that hair follicles develop in stages. The immature hair follicle is the farthest from the skin’s surface; therefore, laser light cannot destroy them. As the follicle grows, it starts to move up to the skin’s surface and becomes vulnerable to the laser light. In short, the laser can eliminate only the visible follicles, and it takes 6-8 cycles of successful treatments to have good visible results. Oasis Laser + Aesthetics is the best laser hair removal in Abbotsford and we can help you determine how many treatments are right for you. No more itching, bumps and dark spots after shaving or waxing. No more worries before vacations. Smooth, spotless skin – confidence all year round.




HOW LONG DOES EACH TREATMENT TAKE?


It depends on the size of the area to be treated. Again, during your consultation your laser care technician will be able to tell you more accurately, but to give you an idea, a small area such as the upper lip would take about 10 minutes, the actual lasering is 3-5 minutes.




WHAT IF I HAVE A VERY THICK HAIR, HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?


Those with thick, dense hair may need 10 or more sessions. For example, men’s beard will almost always need 10+ sessions, with continued maintenance treatments. Teens may always require 10+ sessions. Those with active hormones may also need 10+ sessions with continued maintenance treatments. Women who become pregnant post treatment may require a new set of treatments. A person with ethnic backgrounds that have a propensity for more hair growth through the body may need 10+ sessions.




WHO CAN OR CAN NOT BE TREATED FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?


Male or female, body or face, with any skin color can receive successful, safe and effective treatments with our laser protocols. Since our lasers are known for bypassing pigment on the skin, those with dark pigment in their skin can receive laser treatment when they previously could not. Soprano ICE has proven to work on all skin types. We have delivered great results to clients of all skin tones, including Middle Eastern, African, Indian skin tone as well as those with fair skin. Those who have white, grey, blonde and red hair are advised against any kind of laser because the hairs can not be targeted to destruction.




DO I NEED A NUMBING CREAM FOR MY TREATMENT?


Not with our lasers! Soprano ICE is virtually painless. While other laser clinics charge for numbing cream, with us there is NO NEED for numbing cream. Treatments are comfortable, while highly effective because of our time-tested treatment settings and protocols and superior lasers.




WHAT AREA OF MY BODY CAN BE TREATED WITH LASER HAIR REMOVAL?


Almost any area of the body, from the head to toe can be treated safely and effectively.




CAN I STILL REMOVE HAIR BETWEEN TREATMENTS?


Yes, you can shave or trim hair. However, you shouldn’t pluck, use depilatory creams (unless discussed with your Physicians or Technician), or wax as these remove hair from within the follicle.




HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT BETWEEN LASER HAIR REMOVAL SESSIONS?


Treatments varies by patient skin type, hair color, and hair coarseness. Typically it is suggested for face, treatment sessions are 3-5 weeks apart and for other body areas 4-8 weeks apart are recommended. Your technician will plan your treatments sessions.




IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER I HAVE LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?


Not with our laser "Soprano ICE" ! You can return to work or travel. See below for "AFTERCARE" under ~Important Information~
