What is Laser Hair Removal?

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

How does it work?

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 hair follicles that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.

Does it hurt?

While you may not feel the heat element, clients have reported a stinging sensation (similar to the snap of a rubber band on the skin). However, most clients have reported the treatment hurts less than they expected.
Following treatment you may also experience mild discomfort such as redness and irritation similar to a mild sunburn. However, our laser machine offers Ice-cooling technology which helps to soothe the area following treatment.

Are there any side effects?

Risks of side effects vary with skin type, hair colour, treatment plan and adherence to pre-treatment and post-treatment care.

The most common side effects of laser hair removal include:

  • Skin irritation – temporary discomfort, redness and swelling are possible after laser hair removal. Any signs and symptoms typically disappear within several hours. Application of a cold compress can help to alleviate these symptoms.
  • Pigment changes – laser hair removal may darken or lighten the affected skin. These changes may be temporary or permanent. Skin lightening primarily affects those who don’t avoid sun exposure before or after treatment and those who have darker skin.

Rarely, laser hair removal can cause blistering, crusting, scarring or other changes in skin texture. Other rare side effects include greying of treated hair or excessive hair growth around treated areas, particularly on darker skin.

Your skin will be sensitive to the sun after laser hair removal – we recommend to avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight until the treatment course has completely finished.

Regardless of the weather SPF 50 should be applied to the area for at least 4 weeks.

Treatment will only be carried out following a thorough medical consultation with our Laser specialists who will ensure this treatment is appropriate for you. This allows side effects to be discussed in detail before treatment is commenced.

How long will the results last?

Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods it does not result in permanent hair removal.

Regular laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal – on average one session every 4 weeks for 6 months is required.

Maintenance treatments (1 session every 6 months) are then required to keep on top of results.

What does a Laser Hair removal appointment involve?

You will need to shave the area of skin the day before your appointment.

On the day, you will be provided with specially designed goggles to protect your eyes.

Our laser technician will apply a cool gel to the area.

Our handheld laser device will then be passed over the skin and trigger the laser.  This may feel like an elastic band snapping at your skin.

Each session may take between 15 minutes to over an hour (depending on the size of the area to be treated).


The cost of laser hair removal depends on the area of the body being treated and the number of treatments needed.

We offer individual treatment prices & also package prices for a course of 6 sessions. Bespoke packages available on request.
