Laser hair removal is the process of removing excess and unwanted hair by exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. Hair grows in 3 main phases (anagen, telogen, catagen) and a laser can only affect the currently active growing hair follicles (early anagen). Therefore, multiple sessions are needed to kill hair in all phases of growth. Depending on the type of hair and skin colour, a course of laser hair removal sessions have been shown to provide long-term reduction of hair.
The key principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis (SPTL), which is the process of matching wavelength of light to pulse duration giving optimal effect on the hair follicle with minimal effect on surrounding tissue.
Melanin is considered the primary cell for efficient hair removal for most lasers currently in use. Melanin occurs naturally in the skin, and gives skin and hair their colour and because of the selective absorption of laser light, black or brown hairs are most effectively removed.
Our laser (the gold standard Cynosure Elite) is equipped with an advanced cooling system making the treatment virtually pain free. In our experience clients find waxing much more painful than laser hair removal. The sensation is that of a tiny pin prick that lasts just a second, the patch test will provide an opportunity to judge this for yourself.
Yes, our advanced technology means that all skin colours can now safely be treated.
Unfortunately solid evidence as to whether this is effective is very hard to come by, there have been recent advances whereby a dye is used to provide the hair with colour but results to date have been disappointing. Many clients opt to have laser on their dark hairs and eliminate any remaining blonde or grey hairs via electrolysis.
In the case of hair removal Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) requires more treatments on average (around 10 vs 6 with a laser) to achieve the desired results and has been known to remove the pigment from the hair, making further treatment impossible. They produce a bandwidth of light that can heat up all the surrounding tissue, making it less effective in disabling hair especially on darker skin. They do not penetrate as deeply as lasers so in the case of most body areas the key structures of the hair are not destroyed meaning results are limited and generally short lived.
Laser hair removal is suitable for men and women that want a long term solution to removing unwanted body and facial hair.

I am so pleased to have discovered Beckenham Beauty!! It's great that a mobile beauty therapist can come to my house once the kids are in bed and offer such a wide selection of treatments. I now use the Shellac on my nails and it's amazing...dries in seconds and it's just like a nail varnish on my natural nails.
Thanks for my beautiful nails and tan! My nails have lasted with the shellac and look great and so happy that I went ahead with a mobile spray tan using Sienna X and didn’t realise how natural it looks. I’ve had 3 people ask where I’ve been on holiday.
Hi, thank you so much for the mobile spray tan its come out so well! Very pleased with it! I must say its the best spray tan I've had by miles! I'll certainly be booking another appointment soon if that's okay! Thanks again.
Having the lash perfect eyelash extensions gives me one less thing to worry about and even if I throw on a tracksuit to pop to the shops with not a scrap of makeup on, I still feel glamorous - in fact I have more confidence now. My new eyelash extensions are amazing!
