Laser hair removal could be the ideal solution if you want to permanently reduce areas of body hair.
Whether it be bikini and underarm, jawline and chin, or back and chest; most of your body can be treated, so you can enjoy silky-smooth skin without the continued hassle of shaving and waxing. We offer two types of hair removal treatment at The Hospital Group: Intense Pulsed Light technology (IPL) and laser.
The hairs on the area being treated will become increasingly sparse throughout the course of treatment – leaving you with hair-free, smooth skin. Permanent results are often achieved by this amazing treatment.
You will visit the clinic every 4-8 weeks for a minimum of 8 sessions, depending on which area of the body you are having treated. You could be swimsuit-ready whenever the sun shines, as you will enjoy a permanent 60-70% decrease in hair growth by the end of your course.
It is important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring – just as with all types of medical aesthetic treatment.
Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications, although possible side effects are usually minimal. They include swelling and redness following the procedure.
You may experience an itchy rash, or that the skin feels dry and bumpy after shaving the unwanted hairs on your body. You could be looking for a solution that will help you banish the hairs for good. as waxing regularly may have become too painful and can be costly long-term.
You can find out whether you are a suitable candidate for laser hair removal with advice from our medical aesthetic practitioners. We do not usually recommend this treatment for anyone with blonde, grey or red hair – you tend to get the best results if you have dark hair.
As you will need to let your natural tan fade before having the treatment, having laser hair removal in the winter is more beneficial than in the summer. By starting in the winter months, you will be beach ready by the time summer arrives.
We understand that every patient’s requirements are different, and so treatment will be tailored specifically to you. As a responsible provider of medical aesthetics, we place a great deal of importance on our free, no-obligation consultations.
Your practitioner will provide a detailed pricing overview for your treatment following your consultation process.

Your journey step by step
Your journey with The Hospital Group begins with a consultation with our friendly medical aesthetic practitioners, this may be an Aesthetician, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. During this conversation you can talk through why you’re interested in this treatment, how much it costs, whether you’re suitable for treatment, if you’ll need a one off treatment, or a full course, as well as potential treatment dates.
You can ask our medical aesthetic practitioners any questions as they are extremely knowledgeable and have undertaken extensive training. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test (where applicable) and book your first treatment for a date and time that suits you.
You can ask your medical aesthetic practitioner any final questions on the day of the treatment. All pre- and post-treatment advice will be discussed prior to the day itself, so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment, including how long it will take, and how it will feel.
For most medical aesthetic treatments, you will be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be able to go about your normal day-to-day activities.
