As the colder weather is gradually starting to ease, many of us will be looking forward to the spring months ahead. As we approach the end of February and we’re starting to see the shops fill up with lovely skirts and dresses for the arrival of March and April, many of you might be worrying about getting your legs back on show. As the hemlines creep up, and we swap our jeans for cropped linen trousers, it’ll soon be that time of year when we’ll be baring a little more skin.
If you’ve spent the winter months covering up your arms, legs and tum, but fancy showing some skin during spring and summer, now is the perfect time to get started with your laser hair removal treatment.
Having unwanted body or facial hair can be distressing, leaving you feeling self conscious and unhappy with your appearance. At Canterbury Skin & Laser Clinic, we know it’s important that you look and feel your best at all times. Always keen to offer our patients the very best treatments, we offer hair removal for face and body using the Alexandrite laser; which offers outstanding results for your body as well as your face. Particularly effective on dark hair (the darker the better actually because it contains more pigment to absorb the laser light) this treatment can remove most colours of hair, apart from white.
So how does laser hair removal actually work? The laser light destroys the hair follicle, making it impossible for the hair to grow back. The treatment isn’t painful as such, although patients do report a slight stinging sensation, which is totally normal and doesn’t require pain medication. It can be used all over the body and the face, although at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic we find the legs, arms, underarms and back – as well as areas like the upper lip, chest and bikini line – are all very popular.
On average 4-6 sessions of treatment will be required over a 12 month period, but this can differ patient to patient. Some patients see results after just one or two sessions, but this usually depends on the individual and the colour of the hair being treated. Treatment times vary, as the colour of the hair and the size of the treatment area needs to be considered on an individual basis. This will be decided upon consultation, where you can also ask the team any questions you might have about undergoing laser hair removal. We also offer patients a discreet service, and have female practitioners on hand to help you with your treatment, whether you choose to have hair removed from your face or body.
Laser hair removal is a modern approach to removing unwanted body and facial hair, making it one of the most popular treatments at our clinic. The permanent results mean you’ll be free from shaving, waxing and plucking for a lifetime, allowing you to get on with more important things and leaves you confident, safe in the knowledge you’ll be fuzz-free for good.
