What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Waxing, shaving, threading, depilating, plucking and electrolysis are all methods of hair removal that never get rid of the root of the problem – the hair bulbs and the stem cells that always regenerate them.
Lasers and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) machines have been used for nearly twenty years to remove hair permanently – but always at risk of causing burns, scarring or depigmentation. There has been an explosion in the number of salons offering IPL and Laser Hair Removal following government deregulation in October 2010 and the scandals over breast implants and fillers have already hit the headlines. Some customers have become confused and disillusioned by claim and counter-claim regarding IPL and Lasers. We put our clients minds at rest because we are Medical Doctors practising to the highest standards. Our experience of dermatology and medical conditions means that our clients can enjoy complete peace of mind when having their treatments. You’ll find lots of information on our website about our removal and treatments.*
The reason why we continue to deliver fantastic laser hair removal results? Not only do we have expert and experienced staff, we also have the very best laser hair technology the market has to offer in Soprano Laser Hair Removal. Award-winning technology, Soprano provides the most comprehensive hair removal solution, effectively targeting all hair follicles to prevent hair re-growth on a long-term basis. Able to be used on virtually any area of the body you wish to remove hair from, Soprano is equally effective for both men and women – guaranteed to provide premium results you simply won’t achieve with any other treatment!
What Can I Expect?
One session of laser hair removal typically won’t take longer than an hour, but this depends on the specific areas receiving treatment.
Prior to actual treatment taking place, we offer a free test service in which a patch test is conducted a few days before the first treatment. This is to rule out any potential allergic reactions your skin may have.
Before arriving, we highly recommend shaving your chosen treatment area to prepare your skin for the laser. If hair is still present, pigment above the skin will absorb the light as opposed to the deeper follicles, causing the entire treatment process to be virtually ineffective.
Is there any pain?
Some other methods of administering laser hair removal can be painful due to short, sharp administration of light.
However, the Soprano technology we use here guarantees a virtually painless experience over all areas of skin. Its unique cooling mechanism ensures skin doesn’t sting or burn due to the laser’s heat, and outer layers of visible skin won’t be damaged.
Multiple treatments every 4-6 weeks are likely required to be entirely hair-free for a long period of time; hair must be treated at the correct point of its growth cycle to ensure maximum follicle damage.
If you’ve received treatment on a typically-exposed part of your body, we highly recommend staying out of the sun during the entire process of receiving laser hair removal treatments.
Skin may be slightly sensitive or red directly after treatment, but this is totally normal and should subside within 24-48 hours.
