Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments for both men and women who want to eradicate excess and / or unwanted hair. Here at Nassif Medspa, we use only the most premium lasers for the best results – Cynosure Elite+, a market leading specialist laser. It contains two laser systems – a 755 nm Alexandrite laser and a high powered 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser – these are the most optimal wavelengths for hair removal.

Unwanted hair can be present on a variety of areas over the face and body, for which the laser hair removal procedure can be adapted. Whether you’re male or female, young or old, particularly hirsute or just tired of never-ending grooming, excess body hair can be extremely challenging. Each person has different levels of unwanted hair and different areas can be affected.

As well as contributing to a less than pleasing appearance, removing excess hair often requires a regular routine that may include shaving, waxing or applying creams. These repetitive methods are usually very short term solutions that see hair starting to grow back fairly quickly.

This safe procedure involves holding a device against the skin, emitting a laser that delivers targeted heat energy to the follicles. The melanin in the hair (giving it its colour) absorbs the laser light which produces heat that damages the hair at the root. The root is completely destroyed and the follicle is prevented from producing a new hair. As the laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair, darker skin tones and hair colours will respond more effectively to this treatment. Results can often be seen within 7 – 10 days of the first treatment, with hair growth reducing further over a course of between 6 and 8 sessions depending on your hair type and strength.

Laser hair removal can be used to treat unwanted hair on areas of the face and body, including: legs, arms, underarms, stomach, back, bikini line and chest. Treating the face can reduce hair growth on the upper lip, side burns, eyebrows and neck, with male patients using this method to create neater facial hairlines.

Ingrown hairs can be a common problem for which laser hair removal may be a solution that is truly permanent.

FAQs

Am I suitable for this treatment?

You will need to attend a pre-treatment consultation at Nassif MedSpa, which is used to determine your suitability for this treatment and to perform a small patch test. This treatment is not recommended for people who have tanned skin, as the laser attracts to a darker pigment (and tanned skin is more pigmented than it would be naturally). Some darker skin tones may also not be suitable, which can be discussed during the consultation. White hair and very red hair is also not suitable for treatment.

Is laser hair removal treatment safe?

The use of lasers has been around since the 1960’s and have seen much development over the years. With as many as 30 machines in the UK with variable treatment indications and limitations, it is down to the consultation to offer specific advice and information about the procedure and type of machine to be used, with expected treatment outcomes and associated risks.

Will it hurt?

Laser hair removal is not painful – most people feel it is less painful than waxing, with a sensation reported to be similar to the snap of a rubber band against the skin. For those with very sensitive skin, a pain relieving cream can be applied prior to the treatment for more comfort.

Are there any side effects or risks?

The skin can appear slightly red after treatments and the hair follicles which have been treated may appear raised and bumpy for up to 48 hours. Itching can occur in some individuals, several days after treatment which tends to mild and will subside. Other side effects are rare and will be explained during your pre-treatment consultation.

How much downtime can I expect?

Although a few minor side effects may occur following the procedure, there is very little downtime attached to the laser hair removal treatment. When you leave the clinic you should be able to continue with your day as you normally would, only feeling some very slight sensitivity of the skin.

I have been to see Amanda a few times now to help with the appearance of my acne scarring and redness. On my first appointment we had a very very thorough consultation which I really appreciated. I then went onto have halo and profractional laser, the aftercare was amazing and she was always on hand to answer any queries over message on her weekend! I have recently been for a checkup where I had more treatment in her own time just so I can get the best results possible. You're in extremely good hands at nassif med spa, everything is amazing from the second you walk through the door. I have had a lot of people curious about what I'm doing too. Thankyou!

The Hydrafacial Platinum was absolutely fantastic, hands down the best facial I have ever had. My skin felt gorgeous afterwards and the whole experience was relaxing and rejuvenating. Nina was lovely, friendly and explained each stage, which was very reassuring. Amanda and Andi were so welcoming and professional. The clinic is beautifully clean and well presented. I will be back and have already recommended them and this particular treatment to friends and family. Thank you!

An excellent clinic, highly recommended! I visited Nassif Medspa initially for BBL treatment, but soon progressed to Moxi and Hydrafacial treatments. Amanda is a consummate professional, who listened to my (difficult) in-depth journey, and made recommendations to help. My skin has never looked better! Her attention to detail is second-to-none; Amanda genuinely puts time, energy, and her soul into her work, and it really shows. Shout out to the lovely Andy and Nina too. A great clinic with awesome vibes. Big thumbs up! A++++++++++++++++++
