Posted on 23 Mar, 2016

Laser hair removal offers a convenient, long lasting, non-invasive treatment to permanently remove hair from the skin and leave it feeling smooth and rejuvenated. Do you long for a daily skin care routine that doesn’t involve the pain of shaving, waxing, and other hair removal techniques?

At the Laser Treatment Clinic, we have noticed how laser hair removal is fast becoming one of the most popular treatments for women, giving them effortlessly smooth skin, but what else do you need to know about laser hair removal for women?

First Step to Clear Skin

Laser hair removal is your first step to smoother, clearer skin all over the body; the most popular areas for women to undergo laser hair removal on include the upper lips, bikini line, under arms and legs. The legs are commonly known as the area women spend most time, money and effort on; laser hair removal is an effective treatment that will remove unwanted hair across the body.


Hirsutism is a condition that can affect between one and three out of every 20 women who have not started the menopause; it causes excessive hair growth in women due to an increase in male hormones. It is often associated with PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome), and can produce hair on the face, chest, back and stomach. Laser hair removal can be used to treat hirsutism at the laser treatment clinic, it will provide a pain free alternative to waxing and other common hair removal treatments, and can help ensure the problems that often occur with hirsutism are kept at bay.

The Treatment

We have a team of friendly, professional skin care experts who are there to fully explain the procedure to you, and will give you a consultation to determine the best course of treatment for your hair removal concern. The length of time the treatment will take will wholly depend on the area being treated, for example an upper lip might only take a couple of minutes, whilst under the arms, chest and full legs will take longer; it is advised that you should repeat treatments every 4 to 6 weeks to get the optimum results.

Tips for Your First Treatment

It is well known that laser hair removal is most effective on darker hair in pale skin; however, at The Laser Treatment Clinic we are experienced in dealing with a range of skin types, and are able to effectively treat unwanted hair problems in all skin types, including black, African and Asian skin types.
