Laser Hair Removal provides an effective long-term solution to the common problem of unwanted or excess hair and is suitable for both men and women and most areas of the face and body. A course of treatments is usually required at four to eight weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle. The treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and free from both unsightly hairs and painful in-growing hairs.

At the Cadogan Clinic Hair Removal Clinic we boast a range of the best lasers in the industry- the Cynosure Elite Plus and the industry-leading Soprano Harmony XL. During an initial consultation with one of our experienced aesthetic practitioners, they will best advise which laser is suitable for you. With the use of Cynosure and Soprano laser machines at Cadogan Clinic we are able to treat most clients.

Often referred to as the gold standard in laser hair removal, the Elite Plus from award-winning Cynosure uses both Alexandrite and ND Yag wavelengths and can treat all skin types, including darker and Asian skin types. It is a powerful laser that has variety of spot sizes therefore it is a highly effective laser for hair removal on large areas such as full legs, the back or chest areas and laser hair removal for the full body. The Cynosure Elite Plus also gives fantastic results for smaller areas such as the face, upper lip, beard or bikini line.

With the Harmony XL hand piece, a large rectangular window emits broad-spectrum light and is applied to the surface of the skin. The energy travels harmlessly through the epidermis and dermis until it strikes the hair follicle, which contains a dense, melanin-rich hair shaft and bulb. The dark-coloured melanin absorbs the light and rises slowly in temperature, destroying the hair-producing cells surrounding the follicle. As the heat is not sustained, however, no damage occurs outside of the follicle area. Several visits will be required to catch the hairs at a time when they are most vulnerable, since follicles that are in their dormant phase and do not have a hair growing out cannot absorb the light effectively and therefore cannot be treated.

The Cadogan Clinic offers the most advanced long-lasting hair removal treatments in London. Whatever your personal requirements, we can provide the leading experts and techniques at our state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility.

Frequently Asked Questions

We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.

At your initial consultation your aesthetic practitioner will check your melanin levels and advise you that you should not have a laser hair treatment if you have a suntan or have used fake tan.  This is for your own safety as it is possible to have a reaction to the laser if skin is more tanned than usual.  Laser hair removal is suitable for darker skin types.

Yes! As you progress with your laser hair removal course at Cadogan Cosmetics you will notice that some hair will still grow back in the area. This will lessen with the more treatments you have, but your Cadogan Cosmetics aesthetic practitioner will advise that it is best to shave in between treatments rather than bleach, wax or epilate the re-growth.

Laser hair removal is permanent hair reduction and actively growing hair follicles that have have been treated should not re-grow. Some patients may come back for a top up treatment a couple of years following the treatment.

Prices will be confirmed following your free consultation and test patch. Cost vary according to area of the body targeted but start from as little as £70, and up to £450 per area. Package pricing available.
