Laser hair removal (frequently asked questions)

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.
Laser vs IPL
Is it safe?
Absolutely. 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 it 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.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Does it 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.
Myths about LHR
Is it right for me?
Treatment is safe on all skin types and colours, so 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 therapist 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, even on sensitive areas.
Popular Treatment 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 free consultation.
Smooth skin with Laser Hair Removal
How long will it last?
The results are permanent.
Why women choose lasers over waxing

sk:n Clinics is widely recognised as the experts in laser hair removal and we offer treatments throughout the UK.

Our laser hair removal treatments are safe for all skin types and colours and are suitable for anyone looking for permanent, silky-smooth results. 

The laser used in the procedure is attracted to the pigment of the hair follicle, which means the darker the hair, the better it draws the energy of the laser beam to it, giving greater hair reduction. Your therapist will consider whether your unwanted hair has enough pigment to be treated and will discuss this with you in your free consultation.

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.

Know what you’re getting – Laser Hair Removal vs. IPL

Not all Laser Hair Removal treatments are the same. Many clinics offer IPL (intense pulse light) treatments and still call it Laser Hair Removal. There tend to be the offers that you see on popular daily deals websites.

There’s a big difference:

Laser Hair Removal targets the root of the hairs specifically, and is effective on a wide variety of skin tones.

IPL cannot target the hair follicles exclusively and heats the skin during treatment. It can cause damage to darker skin tones.
