Frequently Asked Questions

Are you able to treat everyone?

Hair removal treatment by laser is suitable if you are over the age of 18, and your hair is dark enough. If you're pregnant you won't be able to have laser treatment; a few medical conditions will prevent your having the treatment; and laser treatment won't work on grey, white, blonde or red hair. If you're not sure if laser treatment is suitable for you, call us on 01793 527060 for a chat.

Can you treat anywhere on the body?

Yes, except around the eyes or on the ears.

Is it painful?

It's a bit uncomfortable, but no more than waxing, plucking, depilation and electrolysis.

Are there any risks?

The risks of laser treatment are very low.
After treatment, you may have some redness. This is perfectly normal, and simply splashing cold water in the area will soothe the irritation. In a very few cases, there can be blistering or pigmentation changes to your skin. All such reactions will resolve with time, and very rarely will there be any long term problems.

How do I know it will work?

During the initial consultation, a patch test on a small area of skin will give a very good idea of how you would react to the treatment, and what the results would be. If the results of the patch test make you feel unsure about undergoing laser treatment, there will be no pressure on you to continue.

Is the hair removal permanent?

Laser treatment for hair removal hasn't been around long enough to for anyone to say that all hair will be permanently removed. In many cases it can be permanent; but hair, particularly facial hair, is affected by age, gender, hormones and other factors, changes in which can all have an impact on hair growth.

Which areas are most requested?

After facial treatment the bikini and underarms are the most requested areas. These areas tend to have thicker darker hair and respond very well to laser treatment.
