Laser Hair Removal Soho
Pulse Light Clinic has recently expanded and opened its second clinic, just around the corner from Soho. With 15 years of experience in the laser industry we are used to dealing with a whole range of skin and hair types. To do this we always ensure that we have the latest lasers on hand, meaning that we will always have the right one for you, no matter your skin or hair type. We treat the whole body for both men and women.
With experienced and trained staff on hand as well as two registered nurses on site you are in the best hands possible. All week we are open until 8pm and we are open on Saturdays too so there is always a good time for you to come in. We accept walk ins for free consultations and would be happy to see you anytime.
Laser hair removal works by firing laser light into the skin which directly targets the root of the hair. The light is attracted to the melanin in the hair follicle and when the follicle gets blasted by the laser it is destroyed. Following each treatment, a certain percentage of those hair follicles will not produce new hairs and as your series of treatments goes by less and less hair will regrow until you are left totally hair free.
Laser Hair removal does not have any side effects, no rash and no ingrown hairs. It is a fast procedure and is available for all skin types for both men and women and any area of the body and face can be treated.
Laser Hair Removal for Asian and Darker Skin Types
It is no longer the case that laser hair removal requires lighter skin and darker hairs to work effectively. With the new lasers on the market both Asian and darker skin types can be treated. Here at Pulse Light Clinic we have a range of lasers suitable for Asian and darker skin types, so no matter your skin or hair type we will have something for you.
Approximately 50% of customers have Asian or darker skin and so we have built up a range of experience in dealing with all skin types. The NdYag and Soprano XL lasers we have found to be particularly effective on Asian and darker skin and on a whole range of hair types, including fine facial hairs.
Some darker skinned clients suffer not only from unwanted hair but also unwanted pigmentation from things like ingrown hairs. With laser hair removal treatment, ingrown hairs will become a thing of the past and you will also see a reduction in that unwanted pigmentation too.
Laser Hair Removal for Men
Laser hair removal is just as workable and needed on men as on women. In fact, here in Soho about 50% of our clients are men. It is most commonly used for shaping facial hair, removing unwanted back or chest hair or reducing excessive hair on the arms or legs.
The high quantity of testosterone in men is what make them hairier than women. Due to this a slightly higher number of laser hair removal treatments are required to see a permanent removal of the hair. This is usually around eight treatments with four top up treatments later on.
For hair reduction this number of treatments will lesson dramatically. You and your practitioner will keep an eye on the level of hair regrowth and once you are happy with the amount of hair left your series of treatments would be stopped.
- What is the average length of time for a treatment ?
This depends on which area of your body you are having treated, smaller areas such as the chin could be as little as ten minutes whereas something larger like the full legs would be about an hour.
- How many treatments will I need ?
This varies individually on the skin and hair type but an estimate for women would be between 6-8 treatments. For men it would usually be 8 treatments with further follow up treatments potentially required. At your initial consultation you can be given a more personal estimate.
- How long a gap do I need between treatments ?
For the face you should space your appointments out every four weeks and for the body it is every six weeks. This ensures that you catch the hair in an active growing phase. This is the same for both men and women.
- Are the treatments painful ?
There is some mild discomfort which is described as feeling like an elastic band being pinged against your skin, but it is bearable.
- What precautions should I take throughout my treatments ?
You need to be as close to your natural skin colour as possible so avoid tanning beds or too much sun exposure. The hair follicle needs to be in place for the treatments to work so don’t pluck, wax or epilate before or during your course of treatments.
- Do I need to do anything to prepare for my treatments ?
Before your consultation nothing is required at all so just show up. Before your actual treatments you are welcome to shave the area that will be treated, if you cannot reach or don’t have time then don’t worry, your practitioner can do that at the beginning of your appointment.
