Laser Hair Removal at The Private Clinic
The problem: Having hair in places we would rather not have it can seriously affect confidence, self-esteem and relationships. Unwanted hair affects thousands of men and women in the UK and, until now, treatments have been mostly temporary, sometimes painful and almost always a bit of a nuisance. Even standard laser treatments have associated risks and are unable to treat certain skin and hair types.
The good news is there is now a safe and effective way of getting rid of unwanted hair for good.
The treatment: Here at The Private Clinic we offer a range of treatments that deliver permanent results in just a few sessions. This allows us to treat almost every type of skin, including dark and tanned skin.
Many clinics are reluctant to treat darker skin because of the specific skills and technology required as well as the risks of burns and hyper-pigmentation, however the experience of our practitioners combined with the technology we use means this is not a problem for us. Our laser systems successfully remove hair from:
- The upper lip, chin, beard and jaw line
- Underarms and arms
- Legs and bikini line
- Back and shoulders
- Chest and abdomen
- Nose, neck and ears
Laser Hair Removal Treatments are suitable for both men and women, of all skin types including dark skin.

Some of your questions answered
Laser hair removal treatment works by using light energy to heat up the hair follicles in the skin and when enough heat is produced, the follicle is destroyed preventing re-growth of the hair. It is a very safe and effective process, with many people seeing between 80-90% less hair growth after a course.
Our laser systems feature innovative cooling elements to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
This will depend on the size of the area to be treated, but may be as little as 10 to 15 minutes to remove small amounts of fine hair on the upper lip. Most areas will need about 6 sessions for optimum results. We will be able to give you a clear idea of how many sessions you will need after your consultation.
