Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal is one of the most popular treatments at Laserase. It gives you the freedom from using other methods of hair removal. You may be waxing, threading and shaving frequently at the moment. Laser hair removal is effective at permanently reducing the hair growth.
We can treat all skin tones and most hair types with laser hair removal. Your practitioner will adjust the laser to suit your hair and skin type. Our nurses tailor the laser settings to the individual to get the best results.
After your consultation you will have a patch test. This will allow us to select the right laser setting for your skin type. We use this to achieve the best results possible. Treatment frequency depends on which area we are treating and the type of hair.
It’s important to tell us if your skin is not its usual colour. For instance if you have a sun tan, a false tan or have had a recent reaction to something. This can affect our ability to give you the best treatment.

Why do I need a course of Laser Hair removal?
Only a small percentage of your hair is in the “anagen” or growing stage at any one time. In anagen (the growing phase) the hair has more pigment it is that which the laser absorbs into. As the hair gets older it has less colour in the root. The root is where the germ cells are. The dermal papilla is this part of the hairs function the heat from the laser destroys.
This means it will take a number of sessions before all hair is reduced. At any time there is a mixture different phase hairs and we need to “catch” every hair in the correct phase.
- Anagen – The growing phase where the hair is developing and growing
- Catagen – Intermediate stage as the hair stops growing and prepares to shed
- Telogen – The resting phase the hair drops out and the germ cells shrink away to wait to start over again
