Laser hair removal in Preston city centre.

Laser hair removal is a safe procedure that removes unwanted hair using a powerful laser or intense pulsed light (IPL). The light source destroys the hair follicles in the skin, and disrupts the hair growth. After repeated sessions, the hair will not grow back at all, providing permanent removal for unwanted hair. This is a popular treatment for both men and women, and can be used effectively for all types of hair (apart from possibly very fine blonde hairs) across all areas of the body. If you’re considering laser hair removal Preston city centre has the perfect clinic for you.

Laser hair removal FAQs

We are often asked a number of questions regarding the laser hair removal. As a result, we have put together a guide to the important answers to the most frequently asked questions.

How does laser hair removal work?

This is definitely the question everyone wants to know the answer to. How exactly does this process work? Well, by passing a beam of intense pulsed light (IPL) through the area of unwanted hair, the hair follicle can be destroyed. This is because the light is absorbed by the hair follicle, providing heat, and preventing the hair follicle from repairing. In just a small number of sessions, your hair will stop repairing and growing back at all, so you will never need to consider waxing or shaving again!

Which areas can laser hair removal target?

Laser hair removal is a safe procedure when carried out by a professional practitioner, like us here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic. And this can be used effectively to remove hair from target areas around the body, including: Face, Neck, Chest, Arms, Underarms, Back, Legs, Stomach , Bikini line/Brazilian.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

The idea of laser hair removal can be a little bit scary, and we are often asked if this will hurt. For most people, this treatment is simply uncomfortable, rather than painful. In fact, it is often described as less painful than waxing. The level of discomfort will differ for individuals, and generally speaking courser and thicker hair can be more uncomfortable to have removed. Some people describe the sensation as a mild heat, others compare it to being flicked with a rubber band, while others report no sensations at all. Rest assured, here at the Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we are fully trained professionals who take the utmost care when implementing any procedure, including laser hair removal.

How long does the hair removal last?

The length of time before some hair begins to grow back will depend on a range of factors, including individual hormones and genes, as well as the number of treatments. For the best results, we would cycle treatments on a 6 weekly basis, to target as much hair as possible, and remove this at all different stages of the growth cycle. Between treatments you should refrain from waxing the area, and stick to only shaving. This allows for more effective hair removal results.

Will my hair be permanently removed?

Well, your body will always want to do it’s own thing. Whilst our laser hair removal treatment is incredibly effective, in some cases a “top up” treatment may be required after 12 months or so. Here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we can offer professional laser hair removal procedures that are based around your individual requirements and personal requests.
