Why get laser hair removal?

There could be a number of reasons for wanting laser hair removal, whether it’s to remove excess hair caused by a medical condition, or to have silky smooth skin all year round, whatever the reason, Laserlife can help.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

At Laserlife, we have a wide range of experience treating PCOS patients with laser hair removal.

As a result, we are able to offer an effective treatment plan, with clear realistic recommendations to those seeking hair removal related to this hormonal disorder.

Hirsutism

Hirsutism treatment at Laserlife Clinic offers patients a personalised treatment plan for the removal of excess hair.

Laser hair removal is a great treatment for people suffering from Hirsutism and can offer long-term relief.

Transgender Patients

For many individuals in the trans community, being able to control hair is more than just a cosmetic preference; it’s a gender-affirming act. We have been providing hair removal treatments to Transgender patients for many years. Our patients are extremely happy with the level of service they receive within our clinics from our sensitive, professional caring clinicians.

Consultation & Suitability

At your free consultation, your professional practitioner will ask you about the results you want to achieve and go through a medical form. They’ll assess your skin type for suitability, for either Alexandrite wavelength or the ND- Yag wavelength.

Which laser is the best?

Laser hair removal works by beaming a highly concentrated light into hair follicles, when this happens, pigment in the follicles absorbs the light and this destroys the hair. Both the Alexandrite and the ND- Yag lasers provide long-lasting results for hair removal.

Alexandrite is the Gold standard treatment for hair removal which goes to more depth and intensity to destroy the hair follicle, which means it’s more suitable for a light skin type.

ND- Yag wavelength can be more suitable for darker skin. Darker skins have a higher level of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour, so it absorbs light at a faster rate than light coloured skin.

Patch Test

Your practitioner will explain any risks of the laser hair removal treatment and conduct a patch test on the treatment area. You’ll then need to wait 24 hours before starting your treatment, so we can make sure that you have not had an adverse reaction in the area we’ve tested. If your patch test is satisfactory, you can book your next appointment, at which your practitioner will recommend a personalised treatment plan and, if you feel ready to go ahead, start the course of laser hair removal.

Remember you can discuss every aspect of your treatment with no obligation to go ahead. Our practitioners are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have.

Laser Hair Removal Treatment

On the day of your treatment, you’ll be able to go through any last-minute questions with your practitioner. They will ensure the treatment area is product free, clean and shaven.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

You may feel the ice-cold air from the Cryo Machine as we glide the laser machine across the skin.

You may also feel a slight tingling – some patients have described it as a hot pinprick or stinging sensation – but it shouldn’t really be painful. After they’ve finished your treatment, your practitioner will apply a cooling gel and then an SPF sunscreen to sooth and protect the treated area.

How many treatments will I need?

Effective treatment is usually achieved over a course of six to eight treatments. These will be often spaced about four to six weeks apart and you’ll soon notice a reduction in hair growth after each treatment. Once your treatment programme is complete, you’ll be able to enjoy smooth skin for many months. We recommend a top-up treatment once a year to ensure the area stays hair-free.

How long does hair removal treatment take?

Each treatment can take between 15 minutes and two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. The underarm may take 15 minutes or less, legs 30 to 45 minutes, and the back 45 minutes to two hours. Our friendly, expert team will do everything they can to keep you comfortable throughout your course of treatments and ensure you’re free of problem hair and feeling great as soon as possible.

Recovery

Recovery times vary after a laser hair removal session, but you are able to leave the clinic as soon as treatment has finished. You can go about your normal day-to-day activities as normal.

We recommend that you avoid doing any activities or using products that could irritate the skin in the treated area. You should also try to stay out of the sun and apply SPF skin protection regularly.
