Keywords: laser hair removal, laser hair removal Birmingham


Laser hair removal is a cosmetic treatment that works towards permanently reducing hair in a variety of areas on your body. It is most often used on the face, arms and legs, as these tend to be the more common areas of where unwanted hair appears. 

There are a variety of hair removal machines that are available within the industry, but most have the same features. Laser hair removal works by applying the laser on a specific area, where a pulse of light is given. This penetrates through the skin, and into the hair follicle which it kills at the root.  This type of treatment shouldn’t take long, it all depends on the area that you would like to work on.

Laser hair removal treatment has many advantages, for example:

  •      It can improve self-esteem and confidence
  •      It reduces hair considerably
  •      It is a better alternative to waxing, shaving and tweezing 
  •      It works towards permanently reducing hair, unlike other methods
  •      It’s relatively pain free
  •      Results last a lot longer than other hair removal procedures


Laser hair removal treatment is popular amongst both men and women, a visit is often needed every 5-6 weeks. It will take a few sessions of laser hair removal before results can be seen, but usually there is a considerable visible difference after just two or three sessions. A course of 6 treatments is usually recommended. 

If you are considering laser hair removal, you may want to prepare yourself by: not exposing your skin to harmful UV rays – i.e. long periods of time in the sun for at least 2 weeks before your treatment, don’t use bleaching creams for around 48 hours before you start your laser hair removal treatment, and try to avoid swimming in chlorine filled water.

Laser hair removal is a great way to help with removing those stubborn, unwanted hairs on your skin. Vitality Medical Spa offer laser hair removal treatments for a range of skin tones. For more information you can visit
