What is laser hair removal?

Are you tired of shaving every day? Laser hair removal could be the ideal solution to permanently reduce areas of body hair.

Whether it be 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. 

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

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. And by the end of the course, you will be able to enjoy a permanent 60-70% decrease in hair growth. 

Are there any risks?

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 can include swelling and redness following the procedure

Is it right for me?

You may find that shaving the unwanted hairs on your body leaves you with an itchy rash, or that the skin feels dry and bumpy after, so you could be looking for a solution that will help you reduce the hairs for good.

You can find out whether you are a suitable candidate for laser hair removal with advice from our medical aesthetic practitioners. We do not carry out this treatment for anyone with blonde, grey or red hair. The best results come 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 hair free 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.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

More FAQs
How much does laser hair removal cost?

The cost of your laser hair removal treatment will depend on the size and number of the areas being treated, and the amount of hair being removed. Your surgeon assistant can give you a detailed breakdown of the cost involved.

What is IPL hair removal and how does it differ from laser hair removal?
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology is not a laser treatment, as it uses a broad spectrum of light to heat and destroy the hair follicle at the root, preventing it from regrowing. Laser hair removal heats and destroys the follicles in the skin using a powerful laser that emits precisely controlled pulses of energy.
Can you treat my skin type?
Hair that is a darker pigment than the skin is most effective when treated with laser hair removal. Your medical aesthetic practitioner will advise you at your consultation as to whether you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.
How many sessions will I need?
Most people require six to eight sessions of laser hair removal to get the results they want, and annual top up treatments may be required to maintain the results. Typically, it is best to remove hair which is in the active growth stage and not all hair is in that phase at the same time, so the interval between laser hair removal treatments is between 4-6 weeks. You will notice that the regrowth becomes sparser each time.
Will the hair grow back after my treatment?
You’ll notice that your hair grows back finer with each laser hair removal session, reducing by approximately 10-15% with each treatment until it disappears entirely. We recommend a top-up treatment once a year to maintain the smooth results.
When should I plan laser hair removal treatments?
Winter is the best time to have laser hair removal treatment because it's easier to avoid direct sunlight, which can damage sensitised skin. However, you can have laser hair treatment or top-ups at any time of year, as long as you don't have a tan. As it takes several months to fully complete a course of treatment, it's important to plan ahead, so if you want hair-free skin in time for summer, you probably need to book your first session in the winter months.
Do I need to avoid sunlight after my treatment?
You'll need to keep the treated area out of the sun for approximately two weeks before and after your laser hair removal course, depending on your skin type. Your practitioner will advise you on what precautions you need to take and for how long. For darker skins, you may need to avoid sunlight for six weeks before and after your treatment to avoid marks appearing on your skin.
Do I need to prepare before having laser hair removal?
For your first consultation and patch test, you should leave hair unshaven so that the practitioner can properly assess the hair and take accurate before photos. After that, we advise that you shave before each treatment session.

Next steps

Your journey step by steps

Your consultation

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.

The treatment

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. If you experience any mild discomfort, redness or swelling, this will subside within the following days. Any specific aftercare requirements will be discussed at your consultation.


We are here to support you throughout your medical aesthetics journey, we believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the treatment itself. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact us at any time.
