Laser Hair Removal

Why live with unwanted hair? – there’s no need to wax, shave or pluck any longer – now you can have smooth hair free skin always with Polaris laser hair removal.  Laser hair removal is the safe solution for unwanted hair on men as well as women.

Is it permanent? – we think so, but the law defines ‘permanent’ as for ever and we have only offered this service for 14 years!  Our laser offers you virtually painless hair removal - far more comfortable than other methods of hair removal and other lasers.

Laser hair removal is safe for both the face and body and will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hair free. Areas such as bikini, under-arms, legs etc are treatable without side effects – the hair growth will diminish and the skin condition improve.

Although no guarantees are given, it usually takes 5 to 8 treatments for most people to achieve successful long term results. However, the number of treatments could vary subject to underlying medical conditions and medication. For this reason, we offer a free-of-charge consultation and patch test service so that we can advise you as to how many treatments are appropriate for you.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a procedure that removes hair from the body by disabling follicles from producing hair using a long-pulsed laser. Laser technology works by emitting wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin). The success of laser hair removal is dependent on the colour of the hair in relation to the colour of the skin and the time at which the laser treatment for hair removal is carried out. Treatments are most effective on darker and coarser hair because it has a lot of pigment and can absorb a lot of energy. Fine hair cannot absorb so much energy.
 Treatment at the ultimate time to catch in the hairs in the growing stage [Anagen] will also reduce the number of hair removal sessions required to give clearance.

Both men and women seek laser hair removal to remove unwanted hair. From regions such as the underarm, pubic area, legs, abdomen, lip, chin, back, buttocks, thighs, face, neck, chest, arms and toes.

Laser hair removal prices

We charge only by time, rather than by area, making it more affordable, and fairer, for everyone. Our prices are £34 per 10 minute session. There are no upfront payments or courses.  

What will 10 minutes of laser give me? Underarms take just 10 minutes as, does lip and chin. Sometimes facial areas can take just 10 minutes in each session, and sometimes it could be 15 minutes – it all depends on the size of the area. Different areas and hair/skin type can take varying number of treatments to clear the hair completely –  find out more.

Hair removal for men

Back and chest hair are the most popular areas that men wish to clear, followed by the face. Due to the hormone Testosterone in men, the clearance rate may take a little longer but the outcome will still be achieved, the same as it does with women. The back or chest may take up to one hour, but a free-of-charge consultation will give you a more accurate estimate. Facial areas usually take only 10 minute sessions. As with all laser treatments at Dunham Consulting, we charge only £34 per 10 minute sessions.
