Permanent Hair RemovalPermanently Remove Unwanted Hair
Laser hair removal works by using a laser light, which generates heat to damage or destroy the hair follicles. The process is painless and very effective, and takes less than an hour per visit. Laser is used across the world by both men and women and is the most permanent form of hair removal available.

The area you plan to have lasered must be cleanly shaved within 24 hours before the treatment. You should not tweeze, wax or pluck the area being treated either between or before any sessions. You should avoid fake tanning products 3-4 weeks prior to the treatment. The practitioner will then go through the treatment process with you, and answer any questions you may have. The process takes around 20 minutes.
Laser hair removal can be used on any part of the body. How long your treatment lasts depends on the area you are having treated. Removing hair on the upper lip will take a shorter amount of time than a larger area, such as the back or legs.
The heat from the laser stays on your skin for 24 hours after the treatment, so you should avoid heavy exercise, saunas, hot showers and the like after your procedure. Your treated skin may also be red and swollen after the procedure, but this should not affect your return to everyday activities.
When will I see results?
Results tend to appear 2-3 weeks after your first treatment, and 8-12 treatments to get a full result. However, the amount of time depends on the amount of treatments you require for your desired look.
