Best Permanent Hair Removal In Portsmouth

There are so many ways to remove unwanted hair, daily shaving or waxing for example, but few ways to remove it permanently. In our laser hair removal clinic, our experts use a number of treatments to remove unwanted hair and ingrown hair for good:

  • Laser Hair Removal
  • IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Hair Removal

Both hair removal methods offer a long-term solution to unwanted or excess hair for both men and women and are suitable for most areas of the face and body.

How it Works

Hair reduction works when the light energy produced by the Laser or IPL equipment is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles (melanin).

The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the cells in the hair follicles which are responsible for hair growth, without damaging the surrounding cell, resulting in permanent hair removal.

The Laser or IPL is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many hair follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of the skin and the IPL or laser hair removal process is repeated until the entire area is covered.

Laser Hair Removal vs IPL Hair Removal

Both IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and Laser Hair Removal treatments generate heat to kill hair follicles. The hair removal method used depends on your skin tone and hair type. This is identified as part of your hair removal consultation by our highly qualified practitioners. You will be patch tested during the consultation and your skin will need to be free of natural and/or fake tan.

Your Treatment – How Many Sessions?

A treatment will be required over a period of time between 4-6 weeks in order to catch each cycle of your hair growth. Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple hair removal treatments are needed. The number of sessions you will need varies, although typically 6-12 treatments are needed for optimum results. This is unique to each client, depending on you and the area of the body we are treating. Permanent hair removal takes place when all cycles of your hair growth are gone.

How Long Does IPL or Laser Treatment Last?

You are likely to see hair reduction after a couple of treatments. Over time, the follicles from each cycle are eliminated forever! You’ll be surprised how quickly you notice the difference. But once it’s gone, it’s gone forever leaving with beautiful smoother skin.

    Permanent hair reduction


    Most people and skin tones are suitable for permanent hair reduction treatment. The best results are often seen with people who have a lighter skin tone and darker hair. Thanks to the latest laser technology, we can safely treat Asian skin, Black skin and dark skin.

    Our highly qualified practitioners use a laser on dark skin and Intense Pulse Light on light to medium dark skin tones.

    Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Fair hair however contains less melanin so is harder to treat. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for IPL or laser hair reduction treatment.


    Treatment sensation varies but is often described as a ‘flick of an elastic band’. Laser treatment or IPL is much less painful than waxing. No anaesthetic is required and most clients describe the discomforts as moderate and tolerable.


    The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and raised but this usually subsides within a few hours. Adverse reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin (hyperpigmentation). After laser and IPL, we recommend to avoid sun exposure for up to two weeks as this will reduce your risk of hyperpigmentation.

    The hair follicles are damaged by the heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 to 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to grow as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.
