When you decide to have laser hair removal for smooth, hair-free skin without the hassle of daily shaving and painful monthly waxing appointments, you might find yourself bombarded with tempting claims and offers that sound too good to be true. We don't like that. We're known for our open, honest approach so we wrote a small guide to help you choose a laser hair removal clinic.

Patch test, always

Having a patch test done before buying a course of laser hair removal is absolutely essential and every clinic should do this - be aware if they're selling you the treatment before a patch test. This is an important step not only to check for adverse reactions but also to confirm your suitability for the treatment.

Avoid old or off-branded laser machines 

As time goes by and new technology is introduced to the aesthetic industry, we see safer, higher quality treatments and a better treatment outcome. When choosing a laser hair removal clinic, research which machine is being used if you're looking for the best possible results. Ours is the new Soprano ICE Titanium, the most advanced laser hair removal technology currently available, and winner of several awards including "Best New Treatment 2019" from the most respected My Face My Body Awards.

If it's too good to be true, it probably is

Always look for a clinic who has clear, transparent pricing. Be conscious of crazy cheap discounts and always ask yourself “If the cost is this low, where are they cutting corners? Are they hiring practitioners without qualifications or experience? Are they investing in staff training? Do they use the latest technology?"

Reputation, reputation, reputation

Check online reviews, social media, ask family & friends for recommendation and look for the most reputable clinic in your area. Laser hair removal is not without any risks so it's important that your laser practitioner is experienced and qualified to perform this treatment.
