Unwanted Body Hair
Some people are naturally more hairy than others. Having
excessive body hair can be embarrassing and upsetting for both men
and women. It can be present from birth or may appear later in
life, usually during puberty or as a result of conditions like
polycycstic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Removing body hair can be difficult, painful, inconvenient and
temporary. The traditional methods for hair removal are shaving,
waxing, sugaring, plucking, threading and, more recently,
electrolysis. Although some of these treatments are offered by
the salon (due do some clients not being suitiable for laser
therapy) these methods can lead to irritable skin, quick and
thicker regrowth (shaving) and ingrown hairs and none of these are
permanent long lasting solutions.
Ultimate Skin Clinic offers the latest Hair Removal
treatment, administered by advanced therapists trained to the
highest standard. The sessions are virtually painless and have
long lasting effects.
• Laser IPL therapy
Q: Is treatment with IPL painful?
A: Everyone's pain threshold is different but
all you will really feel is a warm sensation with a slight 'elastic
band flick' feeling.
Q: Does the laser pick up blonde or grey
A: The laser can only treat hair that has more
pigmentation than the skin. Light grey and blonde can be more
difficult to treat with the IPL. Your therapist may recommend
waxing or threading as an alternative.
Q: How many treatments with the laser IPL will
A: We say a minimum of 6 sessions but it may
take more or less.
