Hair removal is a treatment that we’ve seen increase in popularity in recent years. Due to the growing effectiveness treatments, both men and women alike are booking procedures to get rid of unwanted or unsightly hair.

But how does hair removal work? We thought we’d dive deep into the process in this blog post. Let’s dig in.

Laser & Intense Pulsed Light

In-clinic hair removal usually involves using a form of light to remove unwanted hair. One approach is a “laser-based treatment”. Traditionally, this uses one specific wavelength of light, which can make it difficult to control and produce optimal results depending on the patient’s skin and hair colour.

It’s called the Cynosure Elite+™ Aesthetic Workstation. It’s Alexandrite and ND-Yag laser, which is well known go the most the effective hair removal laser no matter what the patient’s skin and hair colour.

What Areas Of The Body Can Be Treated?

The Elite+™ Aesthetic Workstation can remove hair in the following areas of the body:

Arms
Bikini areas
Back
Legs
Above the lip
Above the brow
Armpits

If you have unwanted hair in any of these areas, you should get in touch and book a consultation here at The London Cosmetic Clinic.

Getting Started

Prior to treatment, you’ll need to have a consultation with a member of our team. During this consultation, we’ll discuss your medical history and treatment expectations.
