Laser hair removal is the process of removing unwanted hair by exposing the hair follicles to pulses of laser light and destroying them from the root.
At our clinic in Essex, we use the Soprano XL pain free laser hair removal machine, which glides over the skin and delivers heat using in motion technology. In motion technology means the laser is able to target large areas of the skin and destroy the hair follicles very quickly, in contrast to alternative lasers that fire single shots of heat. During the process the melanocytes that give your hair its colour are destroyed from the root and the hair is removed.
Laser hair removal is a lasting hair removal technique that gives long lasting results. It’s perfect for targeting dark, coarse hair without damaging surrounding skin and only takes a fraction of a second to treat many hairs at the same time – you won’t have to worry about the missed hairs experienced with shaving or plucking!
Due to the hair growth cycle, you will need to have more than one treatment. We recommended a minimum of 8 treatments as hair that is dormant at the time of your first treatment, will not be affected by the laser’s heat due to the growth cycle. Further treatments ensure all of the hair in the treatment area is removed at the correct stage of the hair growth cycle.
Did you know that 90% of patients have lasting hair loss after an average of three to five sessions?
Before the treatment is conducted, you will need to have a very close shave in the treatment area so as all of the energy from the laser is focused on the root. This will ensure the treatment is pain free. Our fully trained nurse will always check the active melanin in your skin to ensure you’re treated on the correct settings, safety and maximise results.
The most common areas for Laser Hair Removal are legs and bikini line, underarms and arms, face (including top lip, jaw-line, neck and chin), back and shoulders and chest, nipples and abdomen.
Laser hair removal is suitable for a wide variety of hair and skin types and is a perfect hair removal solution for people with sensitive skin. The results are more better than shaving, waxing and plucking, and you won’t experience ingrown hairs, irritating skin or red bumps caused by these alternative hair removal treatments.
