The Low Down On Laser Hair Removal

This week, in certain parts of England, Mr Sunshine reared his much-welcomed face! Naturally, this got us folks over at Skin Health Spa thinking maxi dresses, summer skirts and playsuits! There’s never been a better time to think about laser hair removal so here’s our low down on the treatment.

What is laser hair removal?

Every woman dreams of hair free legs. Just imagine never having to worry about waxing, shaving or using messy hair removal creams ever again. Laser hair removal works by using a laser light which generates heat to destroy the hair follicles. The light passes through the outer layers of skin and is selectively absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively disables the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells. The result? Long lasting hair free legs!

Does it hurt?

No. Our clients experience very little to no pain during the fast, effective treatment. Mild redness may occur but this is temporary and will fade.

Is it suitable for all skin types?

We have found that clients with darker hair tend to have the best results but it’s always worth checking with one of our highly trained therapists during a consultation first.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the treatment depends on how large the area to be treated it. You can find full details here.
