Unwanted hair can be an ongoing issue for anyone- at any age and any hair type- which is why exploring hair removal treatments has become so popular over the last few years. With so many advancements in laser hair removal, there is a way to help people who feel conscious about their unwanted body hair.

Like all treatments, there are some things to consider when you permanently reduce or remove your hair as well as knowing how much it might hurt1 We’ve answered some of the most common questions our clients ask us, to help you make better decisions when it comes to choosing a hair removal treatment.

How long should I go in between laser hair removal appointments?

The time between each hair removal treatment will depend on your hair and skin type as well as the area you’re treating. We usually recommend clients have hair removal treatments every 4-6 weeks. As the body has different hair growth cycles, the hair loss you have will depend on how your follicles re-grow.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

As we use some of the most modern machines, here at Marlow Face and Body, it means all our laser hair treatments are virtually pain-free, meaning your laser hair removal treatments won’t hurt at all! Whilst there may be heat, using the Soprano Ice lasers mean our treatments are quick and painless.

How often do I need to get laser hair removal?

Here at Marlow Face and Body, we always recommend a course of 6-8 treatments using our state-of-the-art Soprano Ice Platinum laser machine. It will also depend on where you’re having hair removal but for facial areas, treatment can be done every 2-4 weeks whereas other areas such as armpits and legs are normally 4-6 weeks. 

We use the best technology on the market with the Soprano Ice laser which targets the hair follicle in all 3 stages of growth and means your hair regrowth will be much slower.

How old do you need to be for laser hair removal?

We always recommend that our customers are at least 18 years of age to have any laser or skin treatments. There are some exceptional situations where a parent or guardian can join a consultation for someone under 18 but we would want them to understand the procedure and aftercare.
