Excessive or unsightly body and facial hair can be upsetting for both women and men, as well as difficult, costly and inconvenient to remove. Laser hair removal is a rapid yet gentle way of removing unwanted hair and is medically proven to give you permanent hair reduction. The combination of expert knowledge and advanced technology allows The Laser and Skin Group to deliver successful, permanent hair reduction regardless of skin tone and hair type.

Every client’s treatment is tailored to their unique hair removal needs, whether it is large areas such as the back or an intimate area like the underarm or bikini line. The clinics practitioners specialise in treating all skin tones including dark and Asian skin, transgender clients and individuals suffering with polycystic ovaries.

How does it work

Laser hair removal uses precisely controlled pulses of energy which are absorbed by the melanin or pigment in the hair. Once it reaches active hair follicles, the energy heats the hair right down to the root, safely destroying it without damaging the surrounding tissue or skin.

During the procedure

Your practitioner will start with the preparation of the skin, clearly marking the area to be treated to ensure absolute precision. The laser machines hand piece is then moved over the area of the skin and activated. During this process you’re likely to feel no pain, although some report a mild stinging sensation much the same as an elastic band snapping on the skin. Throughout the procedure you will be given protective eyewear.

After the treatment

Once the treatment has finished, the laser practitioner will apply aloe vera gel. Any redness will soon disappear and you will begin to notice the results almost immediately after your first session, depending on the area being treated.

Treatment Time

The treatment can take between fifteen minutes to forty-five minutes with full body laser hair removal lasting up to ninety minutes.

Suitability for treatment

The Laser light targets melanin in the dark pigment therefore the laser does not work on white, grey or red hair. If there is some dark pigment in your hair, our system will be effective.

How many sessions will I need?

Depending on the thickness of the hair and the area being treated, we recommend all clients have a course of around 6 to 8 sessions. Maintenance sessions may be required.

Does it hurt?

We use the latest generation laser systems which have a built-in cooling device which means the treatment is virtually pain free.

Recovery time & Possible Side-effects

No recovery time is required however you will need to avoid sunbeds, sun exposure and exercise for 24 hours to avoid irritation. There may be a temporary reddening of the skin and a feeling of heat, this subsides very quickly.

Laser vs IPL

Laser and IPL treatments are both very popular forms of permanent hair removal however although they both use light to heat the hair follicle and prevent regrowth, the technology used the deliver the light actually quite different! Lasers produce a specific type of light which consists of one wavelength, all going in one direction, this creates the single beam of light. The laser beam means that it can target specific and controlled areas of skin, significantly reducing the risk of skin damage.

IPL uses a wider range of visible light wavelengths, covering broader areas of the skin – similar to a camera flash or a torch. Not only is there less control in application with IPL but olive skin through to darker skin are recommended to avoid using this method of hair removal as poor results and negative side effects are more likely. Laser Hair Removal has been clinically proven to be the most effective hair removal treatment for nearly all skin types and The Laser and Skin Group are proud to offer industry leading laser technology for all our clients.

Results

A full course of treatment undertaken at consistent intervals will result in a permanent reduction of hair growth. Yearly top up sessions may be required for maintenance. We recommend after-care products to optimise results and ensure client comfort including aloe vera gel and SPF 50.

Cynosure Laser

We are proud to offer an innovative piece of laser technology to our clients, the Cynosure Laser. It is the combination of two lasers with gold standard wavelength, the 755 nm Alexandrite laser for light skin and 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser for dark and Asian skin. This new technology can not only remove unwanted body hair but it can also treat leg veins, diffuse redness, pigmented lesions and many more skin ailments which effect both men and women and all skin types. It removes fine hairs that would normally be missed by other machines meaning that hair can be removed on your face, underarms, bikini line and chest.

Our Cynosure Laser Hair Removal Service is almost pain-free and uses a cooling system to make the treatment as relaxing as possible. Our Cynosure cooling system also makes it less likely for hyper pigmentation to occur which is a potential side-effect of other laser hair removal machines.

  • Reduces Excessive Hair Growth & Ingrown Hairs
  • Painfree & Fast Laser Hair Removal 
  • Up To 90% Hair Reduction

For trans women, unwanted hair often impedes a successful transition. Estrogen does not work to remove facial hair once it has developed in puberty. If you plan on having gender affirming surgery, laser is helpful to remove hair from the genital area beforehand. Shaving, waxing and tweezing are not only costly, time-consuming and painful, they produce only temporary results.  Laser hair removal delivers a permanent reduction in unwanted hair.

PCOS can cause excess hair growth in many areas, including the face, causing self esteem issues and the necessity to shave, wax or pluck hair frequently.  Facial hair will need 6 to 8 sessions to eliminate the problem. Hair growth occurs in cycles, so a series of treatments is needed to diminish hair growth. Laser hair removal uses precise laser energy to safely target and destroy hair follicles.  This process damages the follicle, ensuring future hair growth is significantly reduced. The results are permanent hair reduction, helping you look and feel like you again!
