What areas can be treated with Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal is an ideal treatment for those wanting a step up from their regular monthly hair treatments or are wanting a cleaner hair removal and less growth over time.
Statistics show us that the average woman shaves 12 times each month. Each average shaving session takes 10 minutes, so it can be deduced that women spend around 120 minutes shaving each month. The area of our bodies that require the most time during these shaving sessions each month is likely to be our legs.
Laser hair removal for your legs removes the need for painful waxing or razor burn from shaving. Shaving around the knee and ankle area can be especially tricky. Having smooth and hairless legs is a great way to boost our overall confidence, especially in the summer.
At Cosmetic Refinement Clinic, our team is experienced in laser hair removal for legs, producing stunning results that will make you want to wear shorts, skirts, or bikinis all year round!
Whether you are female or male, laser hair removal can effectively remove unwanted body hair. Our laser hair removal treatments are growing in popularity with men. The most popular treatment areas for men include the chest, back, arms, and neck.
We understand how unwanted body hair can affect self-esteem and confidence. While many parts of the body may not be visible in public, unwanted body hair can have a negative impact on dating, when performing activities such as swimming, or being at the beach during the summer months.
Laser hair removal is highly effective in removing unwanted hair from the underarms. Despite the fact that the underarms can be a sensitive part of the body (as tickling will remind us), treatment in this area is fast and largely painless. Patients will experience very little discomfort, either during or after laser hair removal treatment on the underarm areas.
Not only does hair removal for the underarms improve confidence, it also helps to reduce body odour, sweating, and ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal for the underarms is effective and continues to be one of our most popular laser hair removal treatments.
Popular laser hair removal treatment areas on the face include the upper lip, chin, and sideburns. For men, the neckline is also a popular area for treatment.
As laser hair removal is non-invasive, it requires no downtime following treatment. It is quick and easy; you could schedule a treatment session during your lunch break and continue working in the evening without any disruption or discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal is a popular and effective method of removing unwanted hair. It utilises laser energy which targets the body’s hair follicles, causing thermal damage, and preventing further hair growth in the future. Existing hair on the body will fall out in the days and weeks following laser hair removal treatment.
It is a non-invasive method of removing or reducing body hair. Laser hair removal works by targeting hair follicles with concentrated light. Hair follicles are small cavities from where hair grows on the body, they absorb the laser light and the hair is vaporised.
Laser hair removal today is one of the most popular non-surgical treatments. Hair removal is possible for most parts of the body and is most commonly used for the legs, bikini line, armpits, chin, and upper lip. Even though it is more popular with women, it is becoming a more sought-after treatment for men.
Laser hair removal is a major contributor to body confidence. It can make complicated waxing or shaving a thing of the past. Speak to our team today about your laser hair removal needs.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
Laser hair removal is effective at reducing the number of unwanted hairs in a target area. By heating the hair follicles during treatment, new hairs are prevented from growing back for a significantly longer time than waxing and shaving. Even when these hairs do grow back, they will be fewer in number, as well as finer and lighter in appearance.
Treatment works by disabling hairs in their active growth hair stage at that specific time. Given that other hairs may enter their growth phase at different times, a number of treatment sessions may be necessary to disable all the hair follicles in a target area. Periodic ‘touch-up’ treatment sessions can serve to keep away any unwanted hair.
Generally, patients will see a 10% to 25% reduction in hair following their first treatment session.
Between three and six treatment sessions are typically required for a significant reduction in hair growth.
Does It Work On All Types of Skin & Hair?
Laser hair removal can be successfully used on all skin types. However, it is generally most effective for those with dark hair and light skin. The effectiveness of laser hair removal is closely correlated with hair colour.
During treatment, the pigment in our hair attracts the laser, so hair that is darker more effectively absorbs the laser’s light. While dark hair and light skin tones result in the best outcomes, laser hair removal can be successfully used on people of all skin types.
If you have specific questions about your hair colour and skin tone, schedule a consultation with our team, and we will be happy to discuss your options with you.
Where Can You Get Laser Hair Removal?
Highly effective while gentle, laser hair removal can be used on most areas of the body, even sensitive areas. It is most typically used to remove hair from highly visible parts of the body, including the legs and face. It is also commonly used around the bikini line and on the underarms.
How do I Prepare For A Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
It is recommended that you shave the target area the day before your procedure. This will enhance the effectiveness and overall comfort of your treatment. Doing so will also reduce the risk of surface skin damage from burnt hairs.
In the two weeks before and after each treatment, it is also advised to avoid direct exposure to the sun. Avoid using sun tanning products one week before treatment.
Following a treatment you will notice that your hair will gradually fall out over the coming days and weeks. You may notice some swelling and redness in the treated area. In the event of any discomfort, ice can be applied to the treated area.
Between treatment sessions, it is advised that you protect the treated areas from sunlight. Self-tanning creams and makeup can be used as desired however they need to be removed prior to treatment. Should you have any questions about how to best prepare for a treatment session, feel free to contact our team, and we’ll be happy to answer any specific questions you may have.
