How does is it work?

Laser hair removal treatments work by passing light through the skin which is then absorbed into the melanin in the hair shaft that is responsible for regrowth and thermally destroys the cells. After approximately 6 treatments, you will have gotten rid of up to 90% of your unwanted hair permanently.

Our laser hair removal machines combine 3 different wavelengths to ensure complete removal of the hair. These are;

  • 755nm – This is for use with thin hair removal and is very effective in patients with lighter hair or for hair around the lips/eyebrows etc.
  • 808nm – Used for most kinds of hair removal.
  • 1064nm – Used for the deepest layer of hair as this energy can penetrate deeper into the skin. This is especially good for patients with darker hair.

Laser hair removal is a safe, fast and painless method of permanent hair removal that can be used for any skin type or colour and can be used to remove any unwanted hair from any area of the body, including the face, arms, armpits, chest, back, bikini area and legs.

How should I prepare for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal sessions can be as short as fifteen minutes and all we ask of you is that you stay out of the sun, shave the area that is going to be treated and avoid using products such as lotions and creams to ensure that you receive optimum results. Nobody will be able to know that you are undergoing laser hair removal treatments unless you want them to know.

What does laser hair removal feel like?

The majority of our clients describe the sensation of a laser hair removal treatment as a mild hot pinch, similar to being flicked with an elastic band and in most cases, the sensation goes almost immediately.

Unlike its more traditional counterparts like shaving and waxing that require weekly maintenance and top ups, laser hair removal removes the hair for good and gives you long-lasting and permanent results.

Hair removal lasers are specifically designed to emit light at a specific wavelength that is scientifically proven to be absorbed by the pigments with the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. This light is converted to heat energy which disables the hair follicle and stops it from producing more hair.

Laser hair removal can be performed pretty much anywhere on the body with a few small exceptions such as the eyes.

In a word no, in fact it’s really more effective when the hair is darker, although we have performed multiple laser hair removal treatments for patients with hair of all colours and types, from ginger and curly to blonde and straight.

A course of treatments is required for hair removal as the laser only effectively works on hair that is in the growth phase of its cycle, so ensuring that you spread treatments out over a number of weeks allows you to ensure that you catch each hair in its growth phase at least once.

As with any skin treatment, it depends entirely on the person and how sensitive their skin is, as well as the area that is being treated.

Laser hair removal is more selective and more effective at absorbing into the melanin, meaning that fewer treatments are required. The laser treatments also penetrate deeper to specifically target hair structures which IPL typically does not.

After suffering from very bad acne I was extremely depressed, I had the treatment 9 months ago and I am in love with the results. I have healthy looking skin and my scars are fading, thank you so much.

I’ve only had my consultation with Sharon but already I know I’m in good hands. She was extremely informative and happy to answer any of my questions and talked me through what is needed for my weight loss. I have booked my treatments and I know from the results I have seen that I will be happy.
