If you want to permanently reduce areas of body hair, then laser hair removal could be the ideal solution.
Most of your body can be treated, whether it be jawline and chin, bikini and underarm, or chest and back, so you can enjoy silky-smooth skin without the continued hassle of waxing and shaving. We offer two types of hair removal treatment at Transform: Intense Pulsed Light technology (IPL) and laser.
During your course of treatment, the hairs on the area being treated will become increasingly sparse – leaving you with smooth, hair-free skin. The amazing results achieved by this treatment are often permanent.
Depending on which area of the body you’re having treated, you’ll visit the clinic every 4-8 weeks for a minimum of 8 sessions. By the end, you’ll enjoy a permanent 60-70% decrease in hair growth, meaning you could be swimsuit-ready whenever the sun shines!
As with all medical aesthetic treatments, it’s important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring. Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications of the treatment.
Laser hair removal is a very low-risk treatment, but there is the possibility of redness and swelling following the procedure.
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 afterwards. Waxing regularly may have become too painful and can be costly long-term, so you could be looking for a solution that will help you banish the hairs for good.
Our medical aesthetic practitioners will advise you on whether you’re a suitable candidate for laser hair removal. You tend to get the best results if you have dark hair – we don’t usually recommend this treatment for anyone with blonde, grey or red hair.
It’s also worth noting that having laser hair removal in the winter is more beneficial than in the summer, as you’ll need to let your natural tan fade before having the treatment. By starting in the winter months, you’ll be beach ready by the time summer arrives.
As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery and medical aesthetics, we understand that each patient’s requirements are different, and so treatment will be tailored specifically to you. Because of this, we place a great deal of importance on our free, face-to-face, no- obligation consultations. Following our consultation process, your practitioner will provide a detailed pricing overview for laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal FAQsMore FAQs
Now’s the time to talk to your medical aesthetician, with absolutely no obligation to go ahead. You can discuss your expectations and find out if you’re a suitable candidate for laser hair removal treatment, as well as chatting through benefits and risks. They’ll guide you through your options to ensure you get the best results from the procedure. Our medical aesthetic practitioners and nurses are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you may have. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test and book your first treatment in for a date and time that suits you.
On the day of your treatment, you’ll be able to go through any last-minute questions with your practitioner or nurse. The length of time that the treatment takes will depend on the size of the area(s) being treated. As a guide, an underarm would take around 30 minutes, whereas a full leg can take up to 90 minutes.
Your practitioner will section the areas being treated with a white pencil on your skin, and begin treating with a hand-held laser or IPL machine. You and your practitioner will need to wear protective goggles during the treatment, and these will be provided at your visit. The laser resembles the feeling of an elastic band pinging off your skin, but this will stop as soon as the treatment is finished.
You’ll be able to leave the clinic on the same day as the treatment. It’s normal to experience mild pain and swelling afterwards, but this will subside within the following days. If your skin feels warm, we recommend wearing loose clothing.
High quality aftercare is at the heart of what we do, so we’re here to support you. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline.
You’ll be safe to continue with your regular activities after the treatment. We’ll give you an aftercare leaflet with all the information you need following your treatment, but as a guide, your hair must not be waxed when it starts to regrow, as this will remove the follicles that need to be lasered at your next appointment. We recommend shaving to manage the hair growth between treatments. You should also stay out of the sun as you will have increased sensitivity after the procedure, and if your skin becomes tanned, we will have to conduct another patch test.
