Hair removal step by step

1. Your first appointment

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering hair removal treatment, whether laser or IPL would be right for you, the likely costs and finance options, and when you’d like to have the treatment. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our professional practitioners or nurses.

2. Your treatment consultation

At your free consultation, your professional practitioner or nurse will ask you about the results you want to achieve. They’ll assess your skin type for suitability to either laser or IPL hair removal. Both methods provide long-lasting results for hair removal. IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatment goes to more depth and intensity to destroy the hair follicle, which means it’s more suitable for a light skin type. Laser hair removal can be more suitable for darker skin. Darker skin has higher level of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour, so it absorbs light at a faster rate than light coloured skin. The advanced technology lasers we use for darker skin tones at Transform have the ability to tell the difference between melanin in the skin and the melanin in the hair to precisely target the area to be treated. Your practitioner will explain any risks and conduct a patch test. You’ll then need to wait at least two weeks before starting your treatment, so we can make sure that you have not had an adverse reaction in the area we’ve tested. If your patch test is satisfactory, you can book your next appointment, at which your practitioner will recommend a personal treatment plan and, if you feel ready to go ahead, start the course of laser hair removal. You can discuss every aspect of your treatment with no obligation to go ahead. Our practitioners and nurses are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have.

3. The treatment

On the day of your treatment, you’ll be able to go through any last-minute questions with your practitioner or nurse. They will apply a cooling conducting gel before gliding the laser machine across the skin. You’ll feel a slight tingling – some patients have described it as a hot pinprick or stinging sensation – but it shouldn’t really be painful. After they’ve finished your treatment, your practitioner will apply a cooling gel and then an SPF sunscreen to sooth and protect the treated area. Each treatment can take between 15 minutes and two hours, depending on the amount of hair being treated. The underarm may take 30 minutes or less, legs 45 to 90 minutes, and the back 45 minutes to two hours. Our friendly, expert team will do everything they can to keep you comfortable throughout your course of treatments and ensure you’re free of problem hair and feeling great as soon as possible.

4. Recovery

Recovery times vary after a laser hair removal session, but you should be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed and go about your normal day-to-day activities. We just recommend that you avoid doing any activities or using products that could irritate the skin in the area where you’ve been treated. You should also try to stay out of the sun and apply SPF skin protection regularly.

5. Aftercare

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the treatment itself, so we’re here to support you. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. Effective treatment is usually achieved over a course of six to eight treatments. These will be spaced about four to six weeks apart and you’ll soon notice a reduction in hair growth after each treatment. Once your treatment programme is complete, you’ll be able to enjoy smooth skin for many months. We recommend a top-up treatment once a year to ensure the area stays hair-free.
