TP Test Patch & Consultation * 25

* UK regulations requires that new patients have a test patch to ensure your skin does not have an adverse reaction to the laser energy. We combined this with a full consultation, which al takes 30 mins and costs just £25. You can start treatment 7 days after your test patch.

Our powerful GentleMax Pro Alexandrite and Nd-YAG lasers safely treat ALL skin types including Asian and Afro-caribbean skin types. 

Our dedicated air-conditioned laser room and dynamic laser cooling system makes your treatment more comfortable and safer.

Our lasers can treat all hair colours except white and grey which can be removed by electrolysis treatments, so you can achieve total hair removal.

As the laser hair removal service provider for NHS Lothian you can have trust in our highly quality and standards.

After treatment you can go straight back to work or your social engagements. Your treated area will feel warm, look red and be sensitive to touch, but this will resolve in 24 hours. We recommend you, avoid for 48 hours, using swimming pools, spas and saunas or placing on the treated area any skin sensitisers, such as perfume, alcohol, acid based skin care or jewellery that may rub.

During your course you can shave, but you should not wax or tweeze your hair as these actions remove the roots of hair follicles which are needed for the laser to be effective.  Hair reduction will begin immediately, but will become more noticeable after your third treatment.  

Hair follicles that have been destroyed by the laser light will not regrow, however a few hairs whose growth cycle did not match your treatment sessions may reappear and these are easily treated in a single session.

Which is better laser or IPL hair removal?

IPL uses a broad spectrum of high-intensity light, which is emitted at multiple wavelengths, whereas laser emits a single, focused and precise wavelength that's optimised for maximum follicle absorption. Therefore IPL hurts more and is less effective in an individual session which means you require more IPL treatments to achieve the same result as a laser and have to endure more discomfort. For this reason we recommend laser treatments for hair removal where possible.

Which is better laser or electrolysis hair removal?

Electrolysis can remove 100% of all hair follicles of every colour, but it is slow and uncomfortable. The laser is more comfortable and up to 60 times faster in treating large areas, whilst also being more reliable in ensuring no hair follicles are missed. Therefore electrolysis generally works out more expensive due to the number of treatments required. Consequently we recommend laser for coloured hairs and just using electrolysis for white and grey hairs when required.
