Laser Hair Removal

Why live with unwanted hair? Laser Hair Removal offers a safe long term solution to the problem of unwanted excess hair for both men and women.   This treatment is suitable for both the face and body, is quick and results can be seen after only a few sessions.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Light is selectively absorbed by pigment within the hair follicle, this effectively heats the hair follicle destroying it without damaging any surrounding tissue.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Most people are suitable for treatment.  Best results are often achieved with fair skin and dark hair.  Grey or White hair has less pigment and so is not suitable for Laser hair removal.  We offer a free consultation service to help assess your suitability.

How does it feel?

The best description that we have heard is that it feels like the flick of an elastic band.  No anaesthesia is needed and most clients describe the discomfort as mild and nowhere near as painful as waxing.

What will I see after treatment?

The treatment area will be shaved just before treatment as this gives best results. The dead hairs will then begin to shed after 1-3 weeks as the epidermis renews, during this time the hairs will appear to grow as they are pushed out.

Are there side affects?

The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may swell slightly and feel bumpy, this will usually subside within a few hours.  More adverse reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.  A patch test will be carried out before booking treatments to vastly reduce the chance of any adverse reactions.

How many treatments will I need?

The  number of treatments vary dependent on hair type and thickness but most clients will usually require between 6 and 10 treatments at intervals of between 4 to 8 weeks.  Multiple treatments are required as only hair that is actively growing is treated, over the course of the treatments the hair will become much sparser.

How long does a treatment take?

Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes but will depend on the size of the area to be treated.

Treatments start from as little as £44
