Reduce unwanted hair permanently

Laser hair removal treatment provides a more permanent solution to unwanted hair. After a full course of treatment, unlike waxing or threading, you won’t have to keep returning for painful treatments to achieve the same results. Instead you can enjoy ongoing smooth, hair free skin.

We use laser technology to actively damage the follicles causing your patches of unwanted hair. It can permanently reduce your hair growth by up to 80%. This isn’t a painful procedure and it can be applied to just about anywhere on your body. It’s a convenient way to remove the stress of removing unwanted hair, along with the hair itself.

The treatment can take up to 45 minutes per session. It doesn’t hurt and it’s very effective, giving you smoother, hair free skin.

No downtime is required following laser hair removal treatment. You can resume normal activities immediately.

You should achieve a reduction in hair regrowth and that reduction will be permanent. This is because the laser treatment permanently damages the hair follicles.

As the laser technology moves close to your body, you may feel a sensation that is similar to an elastic band being flicked at your skin. It may be slightly unpleasant, but not painful.

You might experience some redness during the 24 hours that follow the treatment, but thanks to the technology’s inbuilt cooling system, there is no risk of skin damage.

You will receive after-care advice about avoiding wax treatment in the same area, as well as what can and can’t be applied to the skin immediately afterwards.

Face

Fine hairs on the face can be removed permanently, much in the same way they can be removed from the body. Your skin may be red and sensitive afterwards, so you may need to take some downtime.

Body

Whether you’re looking to remove hair permanently from your chest, legs, back, arms, or anywhere else, the Venus velocity system we use here at our Suffolk skin practice is very effective, safe, and permanent.

FAQS ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL

  • The laser technology will instigate bursts of light energy directed at the targeted skin area. Melanin in the hair here will absorb the light which results in your hair follicles becoming irreparably damaged due to the high temperatures. Once your hair follicles have been damaged in this way, they are much less likely to produce more hair, a process known as photothermolysis.

  • The device we use is very precise, so it’s possible for hair to be removed from anywhere on the face or body.

  • Shaving the hair you want to remove a few days before treatment should ensure that your hair follicles are in a growth phase. This is important for the hair removal process to work. Although bear in mind that the targeted area will need your hair to be long enough here to absorb the laser light. You’ll receive more precise preparation instructions during your consultation.

  • Yes, although we ask that the hair in the targeted skin area must be long enough to attract the laser light.

  • When the laser technology damages the hair follicle, that damage is permanent and no more hairs will be produced from it. However, only hair follicles in their growing phase can be targeted. You will require more than one session, as only some of your hair follicles will be in their growing phase at any one time. After several sessions, your hair regrowth can be reduced by up to 80%, and this is permanent.

  • The number of treatment sessions you’ll need to achieve optimal results depends on a number of factors. We need to take into account how thick, and dense your hair is, its colour and its growth cycle. Typically 6 to 8 treatments are required to achieve a permanent reduction of a significant amount of hair.
