HAIR REMOVAL

Are you tired of shaving, waxing, or plucking your unwanted hair? If so, you may be interested in laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair from any part of the body.

At Smooth Clinic, we use only the best medical-grade machines for permanent hair removal. Our machines have a multitude of settings and can treat a wide range of skin tones. We also have both a Diode Laser and an IPL machine, so we can customise your treatment to your specific needs.

If you have dark hair, both machines will work well. However, if you have fair hair, we recommend the diode laser. Our treatments are fast, virtually pain-free, and suitable for all skin types.

To learn more about laser hair removal or to schedule a consultation, please contact us today. We would be happy to answer any of your questions and help you achieve the smooth, hair-free skin you’ve always wanted.

Frequently asked questions

So how does this magic machine work?

Light from the handle is absorbed into the hair follicle and transformed into heat. The heat destroys the root and the hair’s blood supply so it can’t grow back again.

Our hair grows in cycles so not every hair will be attached to a blood supply at the same time. This means multiple sessions are needed to catch all the hairs in this critical stage of its growth.

We recomend that you do not wax, pluck, epilate or use hair removal creams on the area for a few weeks before you begin your laser journey. In order to get the best results we need a good healthy root that will absorb the heat and kill the folicle.

After your session you will leave the clinic with hair still in the skin. It takes on avrage 1-3 weeks to notice the results, during this time continue to shave and exfoliate the area. This will encourage the hair to shed. You will notice the hair that grows back after each session grows alot slower and is finer.

Please be aware that we cannot treat skin with an active tan. If you are a sun bed user please request the Diode laser. We also cannot treat you if you have fake tan on the area. The laser light may be attracted to the tan pigment and can cause burns. It is very important that you follow this rule.

IPL hair removal clients must leave 30 days each side of sun exposure and Diode laser clients must leave 3 days each side of sun exposure. Don’t worry as your technician will keep you right as to the best machine for you.

Unfortunately grey/white hair is invisible to laser light and will not be affected.

How many sessions will I need?

A good rule of thumb for optimal results is 6-12 sessions for women and 8-14 sessions for men. However, everyone is different this is only a guide. You may also require the odd top-up every 6-12 months if your body decides to make brand new hair follicles. Top-ups aren’t always required. We’re all different and so is our body hair.

Does it hurt?

Well this is up for debate! There is a sensation that can make you say ‘whooo’ however it should never be real pain only a sensation. There are plenty of settings we can adjust to find the right one for you. Some parts of the body are more sensitive than others so it important to communicate. Our fabulous machines have  inbuilt cooling systems making the handle cool the skin on contact. If your worried about pain, don’t be. The sensation is so worth the results.

How much does it cost?

We are open about our prices and you can find them on the price list page. Prices are per session.

We also offer courses of 6 (Pay for 5 upfront get 1 free). You can also check out our socials for deals.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome

Laser is by far the best thing you can do for hair growth on your face caused by PCOS.

Having hair grow on your face can be very destressing for many women.  Let us help you get on top of it and return your face to how it should be.

Treatments will permanently reduce hair growth and even out any pigmentation caused by less effective forms of hair removal. We recommend getting a good few regular sessions under your belt to begin with (6-8 for example). After this the hair will be very much reduced. What does grow back will be finer and come in a lot slower and those pesky ingrown hairs that cause irritation will have disappeared.

Maintenance membership

After 6 fully paid sessions on your face you will be invited to join out maintenance membership for just £30 per month. There is no contract just a direct debit. You can visit as and when you require a top up. Usually every 3-6 weeks but you can come more frequently if needed. We got you covered.

Why do I need a top up?

Ladies with PCOS have more male hormones in their bodies than someone without PCOS. This drives hair growth by activating new follicles all the time. Don’t let this worry you. You simply book a session online and get back on top of it.

If laser sounds like a dream come true and you’d love to begin sessions, it is important to stop waxing, plucking and threading a few weeks before hand. We need a fat juicy root to zap. Half a root won’t work as well.

One last thing

It’s an old wives’ tale that if you shave, it will come in thicker. Its simply not true. It just feels jaggy because the soft length is gone.

Whats stopping you girl? Go claim that beautiful face back.

Please be aware that we are unable to treat grey/white hair. It is invisible to laser light.
