Laser hair removal
As well as sensational dental and facial rejuvenation treatments, we also provide the ultimate hair removal solution. Our laser hair removal treatment is safe and effective and uses state of the art technology to remove unwanted body hair.
About laser hair removal
Laser treatment became available in the 90s and was initially used as a means to remove port wine stains and unwanted tattoos, when it was discovered that the procedure stunted or even eliminated hair growth on the areas being treated. Since then, there have been significant advancements in laser technology and long-pulsed Nd:YAG lasers have been developed as a successful method for hair removal.
How it works
Our laser technician Clare uses ground-breaking lasers to aid in preventing the re-growth of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal treatment is a safe method for effectively removing hair from the body and face. It works by using light energy to eliminate the hair follicle, causing no damage to the skin. Our lasers are set to a certain wavelength to reach to the hair’s base. The energy converts into heat at this point so it can destroy the follicle. Through repeated treatment sessions we can slow and even stop hair growth over time.
Laser hair removal requires multiple sessions at the Kiss Laser Hair clinic because hair follicles have varying growth cycles, so individual follicles can either be active or dormant during the laser treatment.
Can anyone have laser hair removal treatment?
This innovative technology can treat all skin tones effectively, but it tends to work best for darker hair with a greater amount of melanin or pigment, which makes it easier for the laser to target hair without having an effect on the skin.
Improve your self-confidence
Many women feel insecure about excess facial or body hair, and growth of facial hair is sometimes intensified by certain medical conditions, for example polycystic ovary syndrome. Popular treatment areas for women include:
- Upper lip
- Bikini line
- Arms or underarms
Laser hair removal is also beneficial for men and it works well on the back, shoulders, neck and chest. It is also used to treat ingrown hairs.

Does it hurt?
In most cases, laser hair removal treatment is virtually painless and only produces a light, tingling feeling, but some people might experience mild discomfort if they have a lower pain threshold. You may notice a pinkish colouring to your skin after treatment, but this should subside within a few hours.
It’s important to attend a free consultation with Clare before you have laser hair removal treatment, during which she will discuss treatments and give you a patch test to make sure this is the right therapy for you. It is essential to have a patch test before you have laser hair removal treatment because it helps us determine a safe setting of the laser for your skin type. We recommend waiting at least 24 hours after your patch test before starting treatment, to make sure you don’t experience an adverse reaction. Patch tests are completely free of charge at Kissdental.
Your safety is our priority, so Clare will also ask about your medical history before treatment begins.
