Laser hair removal: The facts

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way of removing unwanted hair for good.

What is laser hair removal?

At The Private Clinic, they offer a range of treatments that deliver permanent results in just a few sessions.  

Their experienced practitioners combined with advanced technology means that unlike many clinics, they are able to treat almost every type of skin, including dark and tanned skin.

Their laser systems successfully remove hair from:

  • The upper lip, chin, beard and jaw line
  • Underarms and arms
  • Legs and bikini line
  • Back and shoulders
  • Chest and abdomen
  • Nose, neck and ears

How does it work?

The Laser hair removal treatment works by using light energy to heat up the hair follicles in the skin and when enough heat is produced, the follicle is destroyed preventing re-growth of the hair.

It is a very safe and effective process, with many people seeing between 80-90% less hair growth after just one course.

The length of a treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated; for example, it can take as little as 10 to 15 minutes to remove small amounts of fine hair on the upper lip.

Once a procedure has taken place there is no down time; you will be able to return to your normal daily activities straight away.

How do I know if I am a suitable candidate?

Good news, the treatments are suitable for both men and women, of all skin types including dark skin.

Is this permanent?

Yes, the hair reduction achieved is permanent.

Does the treatment hurt?

At The Private Clinic, the laser systems feature innovative cooling elements to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.

Patients say that the procedure is no more uncomfortable than waxing.

How many treatments will I need?

This depends on the size of the areas to be treated, however most areas will need about 6 sessions for optimum results. They will be able to give you a clearer indication at your consultation.

What results can I expect to see?

No more hair! Meaning you can wear the clothes you want to wear and feel great about yourself and your appearance.
