Lasers can be used to reduce and stop unwanted hair growth e.g. face, under arms, bikini line and legs. Lasers work by safely and effectively eliminating active hair follicles to prevent them from producing new hair. We use Alexandrite and Nd:YAG lasers; these are the gold-standard lasers for hair removal in any skin type.

All our laser treatments require a consultation and patch-test prior to full treatment. This enables you to ask any questions you may have, prepare your skin for the treatment and to try the laser out, so that you know what to expect during your treatment and recovery. The patch-test also enables us to identify which laser settings will work best for you.

On the day of your treatment your therapist will assess how your skin felt after the patch-test. After completing the consent process, the therapist will give you a dressing gown and towel. The skin will be cleaned and you will be given special goggles to wear. The treatment will be carried out according to the settings we identified during your patch-test. After the treatment we will cool the skin and apply aftercare cream to soothe the skin. The skin may feel slightly hot, like a sunburn, after treatment. You will be given specific aftercare instructions e.g. sun avoidance and SPF use.

At the Dr Tatiana Clinic, we have the gold standard lasers for hair removal. These are suitable for any skin type.

Yes, we require a patch-test at least 48 hours prior to your treatment (even if you have had this treatment done previously elsewhere). The patch-test takes 10 minutes to do and can sometimes be done at your consultation appointment.  Depending on the area to be treated, we recommend stopping retinol 5 days prior and avoiding sun exposure 4 weeks prior patch-test.

For optimal results, most patients will require 8  sessions (approximately 1 session per month) and will notice significant improvement after each treatment. In some circumstances, further sessions may be required approximately once every 6-12 months.

The results from laser treatment are long-term. However, you may need to do further laser sessions in future years.

Some people describe that the laser pulse feels like a rubber band flicking on the skin. It is not painful and you quickly get used to the rhythm of the laser. We use cool air on the skin after treatment to minimise any redness and swelling. Anaesthetic is not generally required.

There is some redness, slight swelling and skin sensitivity (like a mild sunburn) for 1-3 days after laser treatment. The treated hair roots will gradually fall out. These side-effects are generally mild and most people will be able to continue with normal daily routines.

Laser treatments are carried out by our experienced skin therapists.

Please shave the area to be treated 24 hours prior to your appointment. Depending on the area to be treated, we recommend that you pause any treatments like retinol, tretinoin, glycolic or tetracycline antibiotics for 5-7 days prior treatment, as they make the skin more sensitive to light. We recommend that you do not tan for at least 4 weeks prior to and for at least 6 weeks after this treatment.
