“Great results on my legs — thank you! It has saved me so much time. I don’t have to worry about shaving or waxing anymore.”
Laser hair removal works by applying a high intensity light which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft. The light converts into heat and this heat destroys the hair follicle so that it can never produce a new hair again.
Our SHR Laser Hair Removal system is pain-free and works on all skin tones. It uses lower energy levels with a faster light repetition rate and the sweeping motion technique virtually eliminates pain. SHR doesn’t cause trauma to skin and can be used on all skin tones, including darker skin.
We also offer IPL Hair Removal which produces excellent results in a quicker timeframe. The IPL procedure can be carried out more quickly than SHR and because of this, it is also cheaper. IPL is not uncomfortable and feels like an elastic band pinging the skin.
With both SHR and IPL, six to eight treatments are needed to achieve lasting results.
You should shave the area that needs to be treated before your appointment. The laser targets the hair follicle and so it is important that you do not pluck or wax the area to be treated within 6 weeks of your first treatment. You can continue to shave between treatments.
You will be able to return to normal daily activity immediately after your appointment.
Laser and light treatment should always be carried out by a qualified and trained professional. The Laser Clinic Cookham is owned and run by Wendy Lynch BSc (Hons) ADipBT, a specialist in Laser and Light Therapy.
