Permanent Hair Reduction
Imagine being free of unwanted hair. No more shaving, plucking, messy waxing or ingrown hairs! Laser hair removal makes all this possible. We offer a permanent hair reduction treatment for most areas of the face and body, for men and women. With prices starting from £35, it may be more affordable than you think! This is one of our most popular treatments and can be life changing for some.
The treatment works by light being selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle, preventing it from growing back without damaging the surrounding cells.
Most people are suitable for treatment except those with very fair, red, white or grey hairs; the best results are achieved with darker hairs as they contain more melanin. Treatment sensation is often described as a "flick of an elastic band" but is usually well tolerated and most people agree it's preferable to waxing! We have a cooling device that can help make treatment more comfortable and whilst there is very little downtime to this treatment, there is a (rare) risk of a blister. Hair needs to be shaved for treatment (no longer than 1mm in length) and treated hairs shed within one to three weeks whilst the epidermis renews, allowing you to enjoy good intervals of "hair free" time.
Only hair that is actively growing is affected and therefore multiple treatments are needed, typically six or more for optimum results. Treatments are conducted every four to eight weeks, depending upon the area treated. You can continue to shave between sessions, if required, but this need will become less throughout the process. You will be given further advice on how to care for the treatment area at the time of booking.
A full consultation and patch test are carried out prior to treatment. Please be aware that we can't treat suntanned skin.
