Laser treatment in London is an extremely popular method for hair removal. Not only is it quick and less painful than traditional methods, but it also removes up to 90% of the hair permanently. One of the main areas of treatment is leg hair removal, as many enjoy silky smooth pins in the summer months.
When should I have treatment?
Despite the need for smooth legs in the spring and summer months, it is advisable that patients start their course of treatment in winter, as you are less susceptible to burning and will have less of a tan.
How many sessions of laser leg hair removal will I need?
On average, patients will need 6-8 sessions of treatment, spaced at 4-6 or 6-8 weeks apart, depending on what area is being treated. This is also a great reason to start treatment in the winter, as you should be ready for baring your legs come summer!
Is it painful?
Laser leg hair removal is not particularly painful, but of course, it will vary from person to person. PHI Clinic, London, we use the Gentlemax Pro system. The Gentlemax Pro is a laser device aimed to remove unwanted hair and has even helped reduce the appearance of pigmentation in some cases. The benefits of this machine are that it is less painful than traditional devices, and treatment time has been significantly reduced. It is the gold standard for laser hair removal.
Will the hairs grow back?
While results are extremely long-lasting, we can never guarantee the hairs will disappear completely. It depends on hormones and lifestyle. However, most patients only need their initial course, and the odd maintenance session once every year or two – it’s certainly less work than shaving or waxing!
Great, well we provide consultations at PHI Clinic, 102 Harley Street, London, W1G 7JB and also patch tests initially to ensure you don’t react abnormally to the laser. If you would like to book in, call 0207 034 5999 today.
