Most people, male and female can benefit from laser hair removal.
The best results are seen on people with dark hair and fair skin. If you have higher levels of pigmentation in your skin, extra care will be needed. Female patients with hirsutism may be treated but the underlying cause may mean regular treatments are necessary.
You will NOT be suitable for treatment if:
- You have fair hair
- You are pregnant (can commence3 months post delivery
- You have a suntan on the area to be treated or have used a sun bed recently, or have used fake tan in the last 2 weeks.
- You have had an epileptic seizure in the last 2 years
- You have vitiligo
- You have keloid scars
Initial consultations are free of charge and only carried out by experienced, registered nurses at our London laser hair removal clinic.
