The most common areas that we treat for women are face, underarms, bikini line and legs. With men, full back and shoulders, chest and abdomen and beard are the most popular. However, laser hair removal can be used to treat almost any area of the body, with a few exceptions – such as inside the nostrils and ears and shaping the lower part of the eyebrows, although we can treat in between and above the eyebrows.
Laser hair removal works best on dark, thick hair as this contains more melanin (the pigment in the hair which the Laser targets to heat it up). If you have brown or black hair in the area you would like treated this would be suitable. We can treat thick or fine hair and adjust the Laser accordingly for effectiveness. A patch test will be performed to ensure the correct setting of the Laser for your skin and hair type. Blonde, grey and white hairs would not be effectively treated.
Our laser hair removal price list shows some of our most popular areas for laser hair removal, but prices for any other body area are available upon request.
