What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Learn more about laser hair removal:

Laser hair removal is a cheaper and time saving alternative to other methods. Waxing, threading, shaving and plucking are outdated. We can achieve permanent hair reduction within realistic time scales.

We pride ourselves in offering the most effective and safe methods of laser hair removal. Our staff are highly experienced operators, who have specialised in laser therapy for the last 15 years.

Unfortunately, lots of our existing clients have come to us after having unsatisfactory experiences with other providers. Usually relating to poor results, inexperienced staff and the use of poor quality or inappropriate equipment. IPL is not a medical laser and has misleadingly been sold as a laser treatment package.

We use a Cynosure Elite, which is a top of the range Class 4, Medical grade Laser. It works on two very precise wavelengths. This enables us to safely and effectively treat all skin types including Asian and Afro Caribbean.

Laser is much safer and more effective than IPL which works on variable wavelengths. This means it can be absorbed by the skin as well as the hair shaft, resulting in unnecessary trauma and risk to the skin.

Laser targets the pigment (colour) in the hair shaft which causes it to heat up, resulting in either damage or destruction of the hair follicle. Unfortunately, this means laser isn’t effective on white/grey hair, however we do offer advanced electrolysis as an alternative.


How many treatments will I need and what kind of results can I expect?

We usually recommend a course of 6-8 treatments, carried out at 4-6 week intervals. During this time, depending on the type of hair we can achieve 60-80% permanent reduction of hair growth. Laser hair removal is most effective on course hair, however fine hair can be dramatically reduced.


Will I need a test patch?

Yes, we carry out a full consultation during which time we can explain the whole process in more detail. We will have a look at your areas of concern, answer any questions you may have and carry out a test patch. If everything is fine we can commence treatment 4 days later.

Here are some of our reviews:

“Very nervous before my appointment. I was embarrassed about my hair growth and had never shown it to anyone before. As soon as I entered the clinic I was put at ease, all the girls were lovely and it was a nice relaxed atmosphere.

During the consultation Laura explained the whole process to me and I left feeling confident that I was in safe hands and excited to begin my treatment.

I am now 3 months into my course and can honestly say that laser hair removal has changed my life for the better. I no longer have to shave or worry that people can see my hair growth, my confidence has soared and my only regret is that I didn’t have this treatment years ago.

Thank you so much Evolve Medical”

I’ve been shaving my cheekbones for years especially now I have a beard, I like my cheeks to feel smooth. Now I’ve had laser I don’t need to bother anymore…the barber is well impressed!”

“I was very sceptical and apprehensive when I first enquired about laser hair removal. I’d previously tried a course of IPL treatments after seeing them on offer on Groupon. I didn’t get any results and half way through my course the salon closed and I lost most of my money. I was so desperate to tackle my hair growth problem that I decided to give Evolve Medical a chance after one of my friends recommended them.

The whole experience has been fantastic from the start. Now I’ve finished my hair removal course I’ve moved on to have other treatments done, I can’t keep away from the place. All the girls are lovely and I really look forward to my trips to the lounge. Couldn’t recommend them more!

“All the girls are so lovely. It’s so reassuring to know that Laura and Stacey have so many years experience behind them, I certainly feel I safe hands and the results have been amazing. I have polycystic ovaries so I will always need to have top ups done, but I can now go 3 months without having to do any hair removal…its been life changing for me and I now consider the girls good friends x
