London Laser Hair Removal Guide
What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective device-led treatments for the permanent reduction of unwanted facial and body hair. Using a laser device head on clean, shaved skin, the device emits short bursts of multi-wave laser light which penetrates down in to the hair follicle. This process stunts hair growth by stopping blood supply to the hair. Any surrounding tissues are left unharmed by the process and over a course of treatment, regrowth is permanently reduced.
Are there different kinds of lasers?
There are many devices which offer laser hair removal nowadays. However, at Skin Perfection we have chosen the award-winning Cynosure™ Elite and Apogee lasers for our laser hair removal treatments due to its world class technology and virtually pain-free method.
How do I know I am suitable for laser hair removal?
Most people can benefit from laser hair removal, however, before any treatment can commence, we request that you attend a no obligation consultation with one of our skin experts, so that we can assess your skin and hair type, your medical history and your desired results.
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on your individual skin type, your hair type (colour and coarseness) and the area for treatment. On average, you may need between 6 and 9 sessions for optimum results. At our London Clinic, we will ensure you are fully aware of your treatment course in your no obligation consultation.
Why should I come to Skin Perfection for laser hair removal?
Skin Perfection are an award-winning clinic with a team of highly qualified and experienced skin specialists. We only use the most effective, safe and highly-regarded devices for your treatment and ensure that your journey with us is a comfortable and smooth one from start to finish.
The Cynosure™, multi-wave technology ensures faster results than many other devices on the market. Cynosure™ technology can treat all skin types, including darker and Asian skin types (Alexandrite treats lighter skin and ND Yag works best on dark skins). Laser hair removal with Cynosure™ offers minimal discomfort and no downtime and Cynosure™ Elite and Apogee are safe to effectively treat excess hair, including conditions such as Hirsutism, on all areas of the face and body.
Will my hair be permanently removed?
With a course of laser hair removal, the hair thins and weakens for smoother skin. Only top up treatments once a year will be required after a course of treatment. Although we cannot claim that the hair is permanently removed, the hair is reduced considerably and in some cases by up to 90%.
