How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Unlike traditional hair removal methods which either cut hairs or remove them from the root, laser hair removal destroys hair follicles beneath the skin to reduce hair growth. Whilst this may sound a bit scary and painful, we assure you it’s neither!

Lasers work by emitting a focused beam of light onto the skin, which is converted to heat. This heat travels through the skin, down to the follicle to eliminate hair roots and inhibit blood flow to hairs at the base of the follicle.

During a laser treatment session, your practitioner will map out the area they’re going to work on and use their laser to methodically work across the area, so only your unwanted body hair will be affected. So, if you’re wondering what is laser hair removal going to achieve, you now know!

Will Laser Hair Removal Work for Me?

Our lasers are suitable for all skin tones, from very fair to very dark. As our lasers are market-leading, we’re able to provide permanent hair removal to a huge range of clients, offering:

  • Laser hair removal for Asian skin
  • Laser hair removal for Indian skin
  • Laser hair removal for Black skin
  • Laser hair removal for olive skin

Our clinic also offers laser hair removal for PCOS, trans-friendly laser hair removal and laser hair removal for ingrown hairs, so no matter your requirements, we have a treatment to suit your needs.

Please note, laser hair removal is not recommended for persons with white, grey or blonde hair, as the treatment works most effectively when there’s a clear contrast between the hair and skin colour.

What Equipment Do You Use? 

Here at Pure Skin Beauty, we use the cutting-edge Soprano ICE Platinum laser system – the latest generation of the award-winning hair removal system. The Soprano uses SHR (super hair removal) technology, which combines IPL and pulsing light systems to deliver a truly pain-free laser experience.

Perfect for any area of the body (even the most sensitive places), there’s no downtime required with our Soprano laser. This means you can get back to your normal activities straight away, without the tell-tale redness of traditional hair removal methods.
