Laser Hair Removal Treatments

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive and extremely effective therapy which is more permanent and effective than any other treatments currently available.

Unwanted hair from excessive or inappropriate hair growth may appear for a variety of reasons. This can cause immense distress and affect self esteem. Methods such as shaving, waxing, chemical removal and electrolysis all have significant limitations and are not always appropriate or effective. The most recent innovation is the use of non-invasive laser technology, which provides a more effective alternative. Our laser hair removal system can offer a treatment, which is more permanent and efficient than other treatments currently available.

Hair Removal Systems

We offer 2 hair removal systems:

Laser Hair Removal - Laser light passes through the outer layers of skin and is selectively absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Removal - Light pulses targeted at the hair follicle causing the hair to fall out and prevent further growth.


How it works

The laser light passes through the outer layers of skin and is selectively absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. The laser energy heats the pigment and effectively disables the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells. Mild redness may occur on the treated area but this will only last for a short period. The hairs will gradually slip out over the next seven to fourteen days, leaving the skin smooth and hair free.

It is important to note that lasers are effective in removing hairs which are in the growing (Anagen) phase. Follicles in the second phase (Catagen) and third phase (Telogen) will not be affected since the dermal papilla (or root) of the follicle is not yet attached to the follicle itself.

As a result, additional treatments will be required once the dormant hairs reach the Anagen phase.

How many treatments are required?

Research indicates that between 20% and 30% of hair follicles are in the growing or anagen stage at any one time. As a result multiple treatments are required. The actual number varies from one individual to the next but our experience indicates that a minimum of four treatments are usually required and there tends to be a four to eight week interval between treatments.

The Bournemouth Laser and Skincare Clinic utilise the most advanced laser system and can sucessfully treat all skin types and most hair colours from anywhere on the face or body.
