Many women remove excess body hair, usually from the legs, bikini line and underarms, and everyone has their favoured technique for keeping their skin hair-free. Unfortunately, hair removal can be a time-consuming and expensive business, and many methods only offer patchy results.

Shaving is often thought to be the quickest and easiest method for removing body hair, and yet results last only for a few hours and it also carries the risk of shaving cuts and scarring.

Methods such as waxing, sugaring, threading and tweezing offer longer-lasting results as they rip the hair out by the root, but they can cause hairs to grow back underneath the skin. If this happens, inflammation and infection can create unsightly and painful red lumps that can cause scarring.

Another option is to choose laser hair removal. London offers a wealth of choice, and when IPL is carried out correctly, it can offer the perfect hair removal solution. Safe and effective, IPL destroys the hair root and follicle, preventing hair regrowth. It is also very fast, needing as little as one hour to permanently reduce hair growth on the legs.
