Laser Hair Removal

Effective Laser Hair Removal

About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair.

During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually doesn't result in permanent hair removal. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments might be needed as well. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair, but it can be successfully used on all skin types.

For permanent hair reduction to be successful on average you will need between 8 to 12 sessions but as we are all unique this can differ from person to person. All laser hair removal treatments require a patch test and consultation prior to the first session.

About Ultra Diode

What is UHD technology?

UHD stands for Ultra High Density laser technology used in the UltraDiode. This enables the UltraDiode to deliver more energy in less time than regular diode lasers, meaning faster and more effective treatments.

Laser Skin Services

Consultation/patch test (20min): £10

A patch test is always required before treating a new area

Acne (15min+): from £40

Laser shrinks the oil-producing sebaceous gland, destroys bacteria, and reduces inflammation

Pigmentation (15min+): from £40

Age spots, sun spots, freckles and birthmarks all contain a higher concentration of melanin. The melanin absorbs the laser and the pigment breaks down and is released by the body's natural shedding process.

Vascular lesions & rosacea (15min+): from £40

Rosacea, spider veins, thread veins and broken capillaries react to the heat from the laser and shrink. The body's lymphatic system removes them.

Skin rejuvenation (25min): £60

Skin rejuvenation is a light-based skin therapy that improves your skin tone, producing firmer, smoother and clearer looking skin. During skin rejuvenation treatment, we introduce a high energy impulse light. The light and heat can penetrate your skin, ultimately stimulating collagen production. Wrinkles, fine lines, pigments and uneven skin become less visible, and your skin will look younger and fresher. The treatment is safe because our machine has a built-in cooling system that prevents burning or other skin damage.
