LASER HAIR REMOVAL THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU

All skin tones can be treated with laser hair removal and your practitioner will adjust the laser to suit your hair and skin type. Lasers with longer wave lengths are used for darker skin types because the laser goes deeper and bypasses melanin in the skin - avoiding causing burns. Laser hair removal works best on those with dark hair.

At your consultation you will have a patch test, which allows us to select not only the right laser for your skin type, but to calibrate it exactly to achieve the best results possible, whilst ensuring the highest safety at all times. It's important to tell us if your skin is not its usual colour - for instance if you have a tan, or have had a recent reaction to something, as this can dramatically affect our ability to give you the best treatment.

WHERE ON MY BODY CAN I HAVE LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Laser hair removal is safe and effective anywhere you have unwanted hair that’s dark enough to draw the laser – even in sensitive areas.

  • Face, Ears, Jaw
  • Neck, Shoulders, Back, Chest, Underarms, Nipples
  • Arms, Hand, Fingers, Stomach
  • Bikini/Brazillian/Hollywood, Buttocks, Peri-Anal
  • Legs, Feet, Toes

The procedure is most effective on darker hairs with more pigment because hair removal lasers are attracted to the pigment in your hairs. Talk to your sk:n therapist to see whether your unwanted hair has enough pigment for treatment.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL FAQs

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

The treatment uses brief pulses of light energy to damage hair follicles, preventing regrowth. This gives the most effective, longest lasting hair removal results available.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE?

Absolutely, laser hair removal is safe. The laser targets only the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. You may experience some redness, but this should subside within 24 hours.

HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?

The laser emits light energy, which is absorbed by melanin in the hair. If in the right stage of growth, this causes the hair follicle to overheat and damages the bulb, preventing regrowth. The process is called photothermolysis.

DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?

Laser Hair Removal is described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band. The more sessions you have, the less pain you feel as there are fewer hair follicles targeted.  

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL RIGHT FOR ME?

Treatment is safe on all skin types and colours, so it’s suitable for anyone looking for permanent, silky-smooth results.  As the laser is attracted to the pigment of the hair follicle, the only consideration is whether your unwanted hair has enough pigment to be treated. Your practitioner will discuss this in your free consultation.

WHERE ON MY BODY CAN I HAVE TREATMENT?

Anywhere there is hair with enough pigment to attract the laser light. Laser Hair Removal is safe and effective on the full body, even on sensitive areas. 

WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?

The treatment is FDA approved to give permanent hair reduction of up to 90%. The darker your unwanted hair, the better it draws the energy of the laser beam to it, giving greater hair reduction. Your therapist will discuss your hair type and the results you can expect to see in your consultation.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

The results are permanent in most cases.

WHAT IF MY SKIN IS NOT IT'S NATURAL COLOUR?

Got a tan? Had a skin reaction to something? No problem, it’s just really important that you let us know, as this can make a difference when it comes to providing the best treatment.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?

Our treatments are very gentle and virtually pain-free. Some of our patients compare the sensation to the flick of an elastic band.

WILL LASER HAIR REMOVAL FEEL THE SAME EVERY TIME?

As you have more sessions, we target fewer and fewer follicles – so you’ll feel the laser less each time.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL EXPENSIVE?

Compared to the cost of a lifetime’s shaving or waxing, laser hair removal sessions are great value for money. It's also important to remember that cheaper Laser Hair Removal doesn't always mean better or safe.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL UNSUITABLE FOR DARKER SKIN?

Laser hair treatment is fine for any skin type or colour, as long as your hairs are dark enough to attract the laser.

DOES IT MATTER WHERE I GO FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?

The highly trained practitioners at sk:n will always provide effective laser hair removal treatment tailored to your skin type.

IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL UNSAFE?

Laser hair removal at sk:n is never unsafe. Our Medical Standards Team set out strict protocols and audit our clinics every month to make sure we follow every procedure correctly.

HOW LONG DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL LAST?

Most of our clients see a permanent result of up to 90% reduction in hair growth. Results are dependent on hair type and colour and permanent hair reduction that lasts can be achieved.

WILL TREATMENT MAKE MY SKIN SORE?

Our treatments will never harm your skin. There may be a little redness, but this will fade within 24 hours. 

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

The treatment uses brief pulses of light energy to damage hair follicles, preventing regrowth. This gives the most effective, longest lasting hair removal results available.

CAN MEN HAVE LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Yes. One of the reasons laser hair removal is ideal for men is that it works equally well across the entire body and has long-lasting results. From a few unwanted tufts, to an entire back, chest or stomach, laser hair removal is efficient and effective. Sk:n offer specialist laser hair removal for men treatments. 

HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?

There are a few different reasons why laser hair removal might be the treatment for you, including PCOS and the menopause – whereby hormone levels cause excess hair growth that can cause low self-esteem and embarrassment. Also, laser hair removal encourages the hair to grow straight, so it’s a great solution for ingrown hairs.

Take a look at this video as our Group Medical Director, Dr Sean Lanigan, explains how laser hair removal works.

WHAT DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT INVOLVE?

Everyone’s skin is different, so your practitioner will take great care to tailor your treatment to your needs.

You will have a patch test to determine which laser can produce the safest, most effective results for your skin type. Longer wavelength lasers suit darker skin as they go deeper, bypassing melanin to avoid causing burns.

Take a look at this video to see how we look after you from the moment you arrive at one of our clinics.

 

WHY DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL BEAT OTHER METHODS?

The effects of laser hair removal last – with up to 90% of unwanted hair removed permanently – making it excellent value for money. That’s compared to other hair removal methods, such as electrolysis or IPL, where the cost and time of maintaining hair-free skin can quickly mount up.

Want to know more? Our Medical Standards Manager, Lisa Mason, explains the benefits of laser hair removal over other techniques in the video below.

 

Many of us have some unwanted hair, but Laser Hair Removal can be especially helpful if you:

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) | Many women with PCOS find that they have to shave their faces, often as much as twice a day. This can lead to stubble and painful rashes. 

Menopause | Like PCOS, the menopause can cause embarrassing excess hair growth due to changes in hormone levels. 

Ingrown hairs | Laser hair removal encourages the hair to grow straight, drawing ingrowing hairs away from the skin.

HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?

We use lasers that is drawn to the pigment of the hair follicle. And darker hair attracts more laser energy for better removal. An expert sk:n therapist can tell you if your unwanted hair has enough pigment to be treated.

BENEFITS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL

  • Reduce ingrowing hairs
  • Permanent hair reduction
  • Smoother skin
  • Less irritation to the skin
  • No more shaving or waxing!
  • Reduces excessive hair growth (PCOS)

CAN LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK FOR ME?

Our expert treatments are perfectly safe, whatever your skin type or colour. And the results are the same for everyone too: Great-looking skin, higher self-esteem and boosted confidence.
