Advanced Laser Hair Removal – The best technology

Published on: July 14, 2020

Laser hair removal has fast become the ‘go-to’ in London and the UK, for the permanent reduction of unwanted hair on the face and body. Why? Because when expertly administered using the very best devices on the market, laser hair removal works! At The London Cosmetic Clinic at 4 Harley Street, we offer the Cynosure Elite+™ Aesthetic Workstation which uses Alexandrite and ND Yag laser technologies, the crème de la crème of laser light energy, to quickly and effectively remove unwanted hair for both men and women of all skin and hair types.

What is the advantage of laser hair removal?

With the latest device technologies on the market today, laser hair removal is a highly-effective and fast way to ‘kill’ the hair follicles for long-term and even permanent hair removal on the face and the body.

Women spend on average £12,000 on hair removal treatments and products in a lifetime, most of which offer temporary results. Investing in a course of laser hair removal will not cost anywhere near this amount and offers patients the peace of mind that they no longer have to endure painful waxing, laborious shaving or epilation, only to have to repeat the process again and again! Celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian openly sing the praises of laser hair removal and for busy people who leave hectic lives, laser hair removal takes away the hassle of other hair removal techniques and offers a solution that can last years instead of days or weeks.

Why Alexandrite and ND Yag lasers?

Alexandrite and ND Yag lasers have unique wavelengths of light energy, aimed at different depths and skin types.

An alexandrite laser uses an alexandrite crystal which is used as the laser ‘source’. It produces a specific wavelength of light on the infrared spectrum (755nm) and uses q-switching which means that the laser produced has a high-intensity beam in short pulses. Alexandrite is best used for skin types 1 to 4.

Nd Yag laser is the newest technology of laser hair penetrates deeper in to the layers of skin to reach the hair follicle. It has a wavelength of 1064 nm and this allows the deeper skin penetration than that of IPL or other lasers. ND Yag lasers can treat all skin types (1 to 6).

As the Cynosure device utilises both technologies, this ensures that the hairs at the uppermost levels as well as deeper levels of the skin are affected. This produces a faster result and can be used on all skin and hair types.

Why should you choose Cynosure lasers?

Cynosure is a global, highly-renowned manufacturer with a wealth of experience in developing laser systems for both cosmetic and medical use. Their equipment can treat a myriad of conditions from skin lesions to unwanted hair. Cynosure entered the market in 1991 and is now present in over 60 countries, globally. Its head office is based in the USA and is considered one of the top 5 laser companies in the world.

You may have seen some clinics offering cut-price laser treatments and may be tempted to go for the cheaper option. However, these usually use old and dated laser technologies. In some cases, this can mean a less effective and quite painful treatment, and could even risk laser burn for some darker skins if used on them.

Using a state-of-the-art laser may cost slightly more in the short-term but will pay dividends by means of efficacy of results and safety, as well as being effective on all skin and hair types. It’s worth paying that little extra for a comfortable, safe and effective treatment.
