Excess or unwanted hair is a common problem for both men and women. Most of us struggle for years with short-term management solutions such as waxing, plucking or shaving, but the results never last long and the removal methods themselves can leave our skin sore and irritated with ingrown hairs or painful rashes. Thankfully, recent advances in laser technology now mean that we can effectively treat areas of unwanted hair to prevent hair from growing, significantly reducing or even eliminating the need to shave, pluck and wax. The total number of sessions required and the overall cost of treatment varies between patients and depends on the areas being treated and how effectively your body reacts to laser treatment. As a general rule of thumb, most patients typically require 6-10 treatment sessions spread out over several months to get long-lasting results, with sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

What does laser hair removal involve?
The process starts when you book a consultation with one of our specialists, who will explain to you how the treatment works, what kind of results you can expect and how many sessions you will likely require. All you need to do before your first consultation is to allow any hair to grow slightly so that our practitioners can accurately assess which areas need to be treated. In some instances, laser hair removal is not suitable for clients, this may be based on their hair color or other conditions such as pregnancy. For these clients, we advise electrolysis or waxing.
Once you are happy to go ahead with the treatment the practitioner will perform a simple patch test whereby the laser is applied onto the treatment area for 2-3 shots. This test area will help the practitioner to gauge what kind of energy settings should be used on your skin, and it also helps to highlight any potential problems (e.g. Excess suntan or potential adverse reactions) which could interfere with your treatment.
We do this both because we want you to get the best result possible, but also because, we firmly believe that your safety and skin quality is our number one priority.
