Introduction to Laser Hair Removal

Although laser hair removal slows hair growth for long periods of time, it does not usually lead to permanent hair removal. Hair growth and amount of hair is permanently reduced which is great news for people who do not want to wax or shave regularly.

At Harbour Lily Skin Clinic in Bristol we recommend an initial course of 6 laser hair removal treatments for the initial permanent hair reduction. Once the initial course of treatments is complete, clients can continue to have maintenance treatments.

Those are usually required 1-2 times a year, in order to keep the face or body hair free permanently. Laser hair removal treatment is most effective for people with light skin and dark hair. Good news is that here at our Clifton clinic, we use Soprano ICE laser, which is effective for ALL skin tones, Fitzpatrick 1-6.

Choose your Laser Clinic wisely.

If you are interested in laser hair removal in Bristol, choose a clinic, and an aesthetic practitioner, who has a certificate in a specialist area and has experience in laser hair removal. 

Soprano ICE is a Grade 4 laser, safety precautions must be taken at all times, as well as protocols should be followed correctly in order to ensure that the treatment is completely safe.

Permanent Laser hair removal can remove unwanted hair, whether client has a condition that causes excessive hair growth or simply wants a hair free look. No matter if you have light or darker skin, thick or thin, the Soprano Laser will target your unwanted hair at many levels for optimum results.

Soprano Laser Hair removal treatment effectively removes hair safely, quickly and best of all – virtually pain free, thanks to the sapphire cooling tip. While the Soprano ICE Laser is the fastest and safest laser hair removal solution available today, the duration of the treatment may vary depending on the skin colour, hair type and area of the treatment.

An older, more outdated hair removal techniques usually send a lot of heat to the skin and kill hair follicles in a blast of fire/pulse. 

Here, at our Bristol Clinic, we use the latest award winning laser hair removal technology, which is safe, approved by FDA and is extremely effective in removing unwanted hair. For male and female clients, face and body.

Traditional hair removal methods

Traditional laser hair removal methods such as shaving, using depilatory creams, waxing are only temporary and often lead to scars and ingrown hair.

Not to mention the need for frequent maintenance and a really uncomfortable in-between stage!  We all know that feeling, and so many of us wish we never had to shave or wax.

Laser hair removal is very safe and is one of the most well – known and studied applications for laser treatment in aesthetics and dermatology. Only anagen stage hair, the active or growing hair attached to the blood supply in the follicles, can be effectively treated with laser hair removal.

The soprano ICE is one of the few laser hair removal systems in which clientsdo not usually need a local anaesthesia cream, such as EMLA. But it depends on the thickness of the hair and skin type, therefore at Harbour Lily Laser Bristol clinic we do offer an option to numb the area prior to the treatment, as some clients are more sensitive and can not tolerate any type of discomfort or pain well.

The Soprano Ice is the most advanced laser hair removal treatment technique compared to other systems.

Is Laser Hair Removal totally safe?

There are many reasons why laser hair removal is a preferred solution compared to conventional methods, including electrolysis, waxing or shaving, larger areas can be treated quickly and effectively with the laser.

Laser hair removal, supported by science, has helped millions of women and men find the trust that comes with a proven and effective solution to unwanted hair growth.

Laser hair removal requires a shave before each treatment, and usually five or more treatments are needed to achieve optimal results. Laser hair removal procedures focuses on unwanted hair in areas large, small and difficult to reach without the accidental cuts and risks which can happen with other hair removal options.

In order to minimise the discomfort during the treatment, while removing hair with laser, we are using a cooling device, if required, ice packs and a cold ultrasound gel. 90% of our clients at Harbour lily Bristol Clinic, do not require any additional adjustments as they find the cooling tip on the laser effective enough to tolerate the treatment really well.

Laser Hair Removal is one of the safest and most effective methods of Permanent Hair Removal. Laser Hair Removal can be done on any part of the body, except for eyelashes, eyebrows and head. Laser Hair Removal is not a gender based treatment and works the same way for both men and women.

A Brief History of Laser Hair Removal Procedure

Laser hair removal is one of the most common aesthetic treatments in Bristol. The Soprano Ice Platinum laser has been clinically proven to remove unwanted hair on the face and body safely and effectively.

Clients who remove hair with laser can notice a change in hair density after even the first treatment. At the time, when laser hair removal started to appear on the market in the 1990s, the treatment was extremely costly. 

The good new is that nowadays more and more people are able to afford this treatment. At our Bristol clinic we offer instalment payment plan, whereby the amount can be paid in 3-4 instalments. 

At the start of the treatment course, in the middle and the final payment on the last treatment – this helped many of Harbour Lily’s clients to manage financially, as well as to have a desired treatment.

Laser hair removal has come a long way since the first laser for hair removal received FDA approval in the mid – 1990s. Laser hair removal can be a long – term solution for people looking for an alternative to waxing, shaving and picking, people with polycystic ovary syndrome, where hair growth is excessive. 

Laser hair removal can dramatically help to keep unwanted hair at bay.

Are you ready for your hair-free life?

Soprano ICE Platinum Laser has been described as painless, award winning, innovative technology, as one of the most convenient and safe options for laser Hair removal.

Most conventional laser hair removal technologies use massive heat to destroy hair follicles and ensure permanent reduction. Due to the natural hair growth cycle, various amount of treatments are needed when starting hair removal therapy, due to many factors, such as hair colour, thickness, density, health history etc.

A week or so following the laser hair removal treatment, hairs will start to fall out from the treated area.  It’s not a new hair growth, but dead hair destroyed by the laser that pushes its way out of the follicle. Soprano ICE Laser System is designed to permanently reduce hair growth, and can safely and effectively treat men and women of all skin tones.

Unlike other systems, Soprano ICE can handle thin hair on the upper lip of a woman with the same ease and effect as the coarse hairs on the man’s back or chest. Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments at Harbour Lily Laser Aesthetic Clinic in Bristol.

At Harbour Lily Laser Aesthetic Clinic, our laser hair removal can produce lasting results that eliminate the need for other hair removal methods.
