laser hair removal

Among our many services at Light Touch Clinic, we offer professional laser hair removal. Typically associated with the summer months, this method of removing unwanted hair is one that actually lends itself perfectly to the colder months of the year, but why is that? And why should you opt for this treatment instead of simply resorting to other methods of hair removal? Read on and we have no doubt that your questions will be answered.

What Makes Professional Laser Hair Removal Different?

First and foremost, shaving, waxing, epilating and threading are painful. This is a fact that women universally acknowledge. These processes can also be time-consuming and they have the potential to go wrong. Shaving can lead to ingrown hairs, as can waxing, and epilating often causes hair to break, meaning it isn’t removed effectively. However, professional laser hair removal doesn’t come with these concerns.

Our Soprano Ice hair removal treatment uses Alexandrite and diode technology to destroy hair follicles at the root, which prevents growth. A powerful beam of light energy heats the follicles, whilst the device’s ‘ice’ technology simultaneously cools the surface of the skin to minimise any potential discomfort, making this a virtually pain-free alternative to other methods of hair removal. It’s important to note that professional laser hair removal is not an instantaneous process.

As hair grows in multiple cycles, several sessions are needed to provide lasting results. Ultimately, the number of treatment sessions required will depend on the treatment area and the extent of your hair growth. For example, if you suffer from PCOS and you’re in search of professional laser hair removal, it’s likely that you may require more treatment sessions.

No matter the number of treatments you require, the end result will always be the same – smooth, hairless skin.

Some Frequently Asked Questions

A member of our team will be able to share more information with you during your treatment consultation. In the meantime, we have collated a list of questions we often get asked about professional laser hair removal.

Why should I get this treatment in autumn or winter?
Although Soprano’s ice technology ensures this treatment is virtually pain-free, the transfer of light energy leaves your skin vulnerable to UV damage. Exposure to UV rays following any form of professional laser hair removal can result in hyperpigmentation. This is treatable but we believe prevention is better than cure. As your sessions will need to be several weeks apart, you will be hair-free in time for the warmer weather!

What areas can be treated?
We can treat most areas of the face and body for both men and women. This includes the upper lip, back, chest, bikini line, arms, legs, armpits and stomach.

Who can be treated?
As we mentioned, this procedure is suitable for both men and women. Most skin types and tones are suitable but this will be confirmed following your consultation with a member of our team.
