Laser Hair Removal in Oxford

Everything you need to know.

In our Oxford clinic, we use the two lasers for laser hair removal: the Revlite and the Elite. This means we can choose the most effective and safest laser for your skin.

Actively growing hair follicles will be permanently destroyed, giving permanent hair reduction. This is not always the case with some laser hair removal systems.

Most areas on the body and face can be treated with Laser Hair Removal: chin, upper lip, cheeks, legs, arms, underarms and back – as well as sensitive areas like the ears, nose, chest and bikini line.

Our experts are medically trained and supported by consultant dermatologists. Before your treatment begins, you’ll need a consultation and patch test to ensure you are suitable for treatment and allow your skin expert to recommend the best course of treatment for your individual needs.

  • Able to treat all skin tones

HOW DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK?

Laser hair removal works to remove hair by using a light source to destroy the hair. Light is directed on to the skin which is then absorbed by the melanin pigments in the hair. The absorption of the light causes the hair follicle to heat up. By using the correct amount of light energy which heats the follicle to the correct temperature, the heat is able to interrupt the hair growth cycle causing the hair to stop growing. Actively growing hair follicles will be permanently destroyed, so that the end result is permanent hair reduction.

A course of treatment is required to see the desired results because hair grows in cycles, so not all the hair will be targeted during one single treatment session. Results are usually seen between four to six sessions but this is dependent on the thickness of the hair being removed, as well as the skin type and hair colour. During your consultation and patch test, your treatment plan will be discussed. Laser hair removal also requires some patience as results aren’t often seen until two or three weeks after your first treatment.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can anyone have laser hair removal?

How long does laser hair removal last?

We recommend a course of at least 8 treatments of laser hair removal to get the desired results, however this depends on your hair type. During your free consultation your treatment options and recommended course length will be discussed. The treatment can produce permanent hair reduction of up to 90%.

What areas of hair can I remove with laser hair removal?

Hair removal lasers are able to remove hair anywhere on the body where the hair has enough pigment to attract the laser light. Brief pulses of light energy damage the follicles preventing hair growth. The most common areas for hair removal include sensitive areas such as the face, underarms and bikini line, to larger areas such as the arms, legs and back.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Laser hair removal isn’t described as painful but more like an elastic band flick. As your treatments go on, this feeling will lessen as there are fewer hair follicles to target. During your free consultation, you will have a patch test where you will be able to feel the sensation of the lasers before treatment starts.
