CAUSES OF UNWANTED HAIR
Hair removal is part of many people’s grooming routines, though it can be time consuming, expensive, and painful. If you are looking for an alternative to traditional hair removal methods like shaving and waxing, and would prefer a more permanent hair reduction answer to your unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be the perfect solution for you.
Our experienced, fully qualified laser technicians can use our industry-leading Soprano Titanium laser technology to help treat unwanted hair anywhere on the body.
say goodbye to waxing and razors
Like being ready for anything, always? Laser hair removal is the treatment for you. Laser can permanently reduce hair growth – so you can ditch the wax and razors for good. Our fully trained laser technicians use industry-leading technology to perform treatments on a huge range of hair types and skin tones. Treatments are fast, effective and affordable, and can be tailored to treat hair on all areas of the face and body.
Laser can only target hair during its ‘growth’ phase, which means a series of sessions, typically 6-8, will be needed to help in getting permanent hair reduction. We think it’s seriously worth it.
Our fully-trained laser technicians can treat help any skin tone from dark to fair using our medical-grade lasers.

What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an effective, permanent hair reduction treatment, which can help to eradicate hair growth by targeting either the root of the hair or the blood flow to the root, depending on your skin tone. Once a hair follicle has been successfully treated, hair will no longer grow from it. When performed by a qualified laser technician, laser hair removal is safe, comfortable, and can be used to help stop hair growth anywhere on the body.
How many treatments will I need?
Laser hair removal targets hair during growth phases and hair grows in ‘cycles’ so most clients require between six and eight treatments, timed 4-6 weeks apart to help achieve the desired hair reduction. However, most patients notice hair growth is finer from the first treatment. Every patient is different, and your laser technician will be able to advise you on the best treatment course for your needs.
Can men have Laser Hair Removal?
We can treat all male skin areas and all skin types from very light to very dark.
How expensive is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal will be a cheaper alternative in the long term than other hair removal methods such as waxing and shaving. A simple underarm and bikini wax on average is estimated to cost around £600 per year, with laser hair removal you make a one-off payment of a similar price but the results will last you years, saving time and money.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair root or blood supply using a concentrated beam of light. This light is absorbed by pigment, damaging the follicle and rendering it incapable of growing hair. This can help to result in long-lasting reduction in the hair growth of the treated area. Laser hair removal can result in long-term hair-free skin… in some people, hair never returns (though everyone is different, and results vary).
Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
Some patients find laser hair removal uncomfortable, but not ‘painful’. The lasers we use at Cornwall Skin Clinic are among the latest and best in the industry and have a feature which blows cold air onto the area being treated to reduce discomfort. Following your treatment your skin may be a little red, like a mild sunburn, but this should pass quickly. Your laser technician will advise you on the best ways to reduce this. Patients report that compared to the pain of waxing, laser’s a breeze… with the added bonus of effective results!
Where on the body can I have Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is suitable for all areas on the face and body. Clients can pick full body laser hair removal or tailor-made packages for any areas they would like. Some popular single areas include face, underarm and Hollywood laser hair removal.
When will I see results?
Treatments are performed between 4-6 weeks apart to ensure each helps to target a new cycle of hair growth. As between six and eight treatments are usually needed to see a reduction in hair growth, laser is not the quickest hair removal treatment – but it IS the only one that can help to offer permanent hair reduction. Everyone is different, and many clients see a significant reduction in hair growth from the first treatment. Individual results may vary.
Can you treat Transgender clients?
YES! Living life as your best, most authentic self takes courage and strength. No matter where you are in your journey of transition, unwanted hair can often be a stubborn obstacle and a great source of frustration. You can overcome it and we can help. We can treat all skin areas and all skin types from very light to very dark.
HOLLYWOOD, BRAZILIAN OR BIKINI
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
Hollywood – This is everything off, everywhere, both front and back including the perianal.
Bikini – This removes hair two – three inches up to your bikini line over your upper and inner thighs.
Brazilian – This is an extended bikini line leaving a small amount of hair.
