Frequently Asked Questions
Are you tired of shaving, waxing or plucking?
Laser hair removal is a medically proven method of reducing unwanted hair permanently and Quinn Clinics offer the latest laser technology to blitz unwanted hair on the body and face with a choice of 2 advanced systems.
Laser hair removal appeals to many women and men too who are looking for a permanent solution to hair removal because it has been medically proven to work. It’s fast, efficient and predictable. That’s why it is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the UK and the USA today.
How does it work?
Before treatment, the laser equipment will be adjusted according to your very individual requirements, taking into account the colour of hair and skin, as well as the thickness and location of hair in the area being treated.
Both the laser hair removal therapist and patient are required to wear protective eyewear due to the intensity of light blast.
The laser hair removal machine blasts a beam of light onto the skin.
The laser produces a beam of concentrated light which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. It works by selectively heating up the hair follicle, which damages it and reduces its ability to regrow.
Before & After
Laser hair removal – legs
Popular areas for treatment
- Popular areas for female patients include the underarms, legs and bikini area. Facial areas can also be treated (e.g. top lip, cheeks, eyebrows) as can the arms.
- For men, the most popular areas treated are the back, shoulders, chest and arms, although facial hair and other body areas can also be treated.
This list is not exhaustive. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal:
- Fast: each pulse of laser is a fraction of a second
- Efficient: laser treats an area of many hairs at once (electrolysis is a hair at a time)
- Precise: selectively target unwanted hairs even on small facial areas
- Permanent: once the follicle is destroyed, hair cannot regrow
- Predictable: 90% of patients have permanent hair loss
Syneron Candela Elōs Plus with Motif
Laser Hair Removal Machines – Latest Technology
Quinn Clinics have a choice of two systems, enabling our practitioners to choose the most appropriate for each individual patient.
Our Bristol Laser Hair Removal clinic now has a choice of TWO advanced technology systems for permanent hair reduction.
New Syneron Candela elōs Plus with Motif
The Syneron Candela elōs Plus with Motif is advanced technology with a unique combination of benefits, making it a great choice for tackling unwanted hair.
This system offers pain-free laser hair removal with a larger treatment area, making it ideal for areas such as legs, chests, shoulders or backs.
The elōs Plus works on a very broad spectrum of hair type and skin colour combinations and is very effective for larger areas too, thanks to a larger spot area. This makes it a good choice for legs or popular men’s areas such as back, shoulders or chest.
Lumenis Lightsheer DESIRE
Lumenis Lightsheer DESIRE
The Lumenis Lightsheer DESIRE is a “gold standard laser” for outstanding results in permanent hair reduction.
The technology has been around for many years and is well studied. There is evidence to suggest that laser is superior to IPL or Intense Pulsed Light when it comes to permanent hair reduction. It is also superior to IPL for those with lighter hair.
This machine is an upgrade from our previous Lightsheer, using the latest technology. The Lumenis brand is a well-established favourite with our patients and many have already experienced the benefits of laser hair removal. In fact, many of these have been so pleased that they returned to have more laser hair removal.
