Laser Hair Removal Treatment London

Say goodbye to razor bumps, ingorwn hairs and rashes and embrace the convenience and confidence that laser hair removal offers. VIVA SKIN CLINICS in London is the best clinic to achieving smooth, hair-free skin. With our expertise, advanced technology, and personalized approach, you can confidently achieve smooth skin with the freedom from unwanted hair.


Laser hair removal treatments have quickly become the go-to method for achieving smooth, healthy skin and reducing unwanted hair. Unlike traditional methods like shaving, waxing, tweezing, and hair removal creams, these treatments offer a safer and more effective solution. By targeting hair follicles, this procedure not only results in outstanding hair reduction but also eliminates the hassle of dealing with ingrown hairs and constant shaving. With recommended sessions scheduled every 4-6 weeks, you can enjoy long-lasting results and nourished skin. Say goodbye to painful hair removal techniques and embrace the convenience and effectiveness of modern hair removal treatments.


Laser hair removal uses concentrated light energy to target the melanin in hair follicles. The heat generated damages the follicles, slowing future hair growth. It’s important to note that laser hair removal is most effective on dark hair and lighter skin tones however our technology using FDA approved Cynosure Elite+ allows safe treatment of all skin colors and types. For best results a series of laser hair removal is recommended to treat unwanted hair at all three cycles of hair growth, this is why your therapist may recommend a series or package for you to achieve your desired goals.

There are many types of treatments that offer reduced hair growth targeting melanin to achive smoother skin, however, there are differences between choosing right treatment for you. At VIVA we use ND YAG and ALEXANDRITE for laser hair removal for its safety and for its results. Many clinics in the UK use IPL for hair reduction which can be less effective and more costly as IPL requires more sessions. Additionally IPL only treats fair skin types with dark hair and can be unsafe for darker skin tones.



Following aftercare is essential to help maximize results and prevent potential side effects.

  1. Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect the treated area from direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks after the procedure. Use sunscreen with a high SPF (30 or higher) if you need to go outside, and wear protective clothing, such as loose-fitting, long-sleeved shirts and wide-brimmed hats.
  2. Skip Tanning: Do not use tanning beds or self-tanning products in the treated area for at least 2 weeks after treatment.
  3. Cool Compress: If you experience redness or discomfort after the procedure, you can apply a cool compress to soothe the area.
  4. Avoid Heat: Avoid hot showers, saunas, hot tubs, and activities that make you sweat excessively for at least 24 hours post-treatment. Heat can irritate the treated skin.
  5. Gentle Cleansing: Keep the treated area clean, but be gentle. Avoid harsh scrubbing, exfoliation, or using products with strong chemicals for the first few days after treatment.
  6. Avoid Scented Products: Stay away from scented lotions, perfumes, and products that may irritate the treated area. Opt for fragrance-free and hypoallergenic products.
  7. No Waxing or Plucking: Do not wax or pluck hairs in the treated area between sessions. You can shave if necessary, as it doesn’t interfere with the hair follicles that are targeted during laser treatment.
  8. Moisturize: Use a mild, hypoallergenic moisturizer or aloe vera gel to keep the skin hydrated and prevent dryness or itching.
  9. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Avoid using products that contain alcohol, retinoids, or (AHA) alpha hydroxy acids in the treated area for at least 48 hours post-treatment.
  10. Prevent Infection: To minimize the risk of infection, avoid swimming in pools, hot tubs, or any activities that could introduce bacteria to the treated area for a couple of days.
  11. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to help your body flush out the broken-down hair follicles more efficiently.
  12. Follow Up: Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with your laser hair removal specialist. They will assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

Many patients find they need 10 sessions to start their laser hair removal journey with top up maintenence yearly. Reduce unwanted hair by 90% with laser hair removal.


We offer xompetitive pricing with laser starting from  £45, however many clinics charge higher fees and costs for laser hair removal– and we want to change that.  The cost to wax monthly per year is on average £400 – compared to a permanent solution for bikini hair for £300 at 10 sessions at VIVA making laser much more affordable with less time spent shaving or booking messy wax appointments- At VIVA we believe pricing should be transparent and affordable in a luxury environment, we call it micro luxury.

Laser treatments can be performed on various areas of the body, both large and small. Laser hair removal is suitable for both men and women. Laser hair removal is versatile and effective for reducing unwanted hair in many areas. Here are some common areas where laser hair removal can be done:


  • Face: This includes areas like the upper lip, chin, cheeks, and forehead. Laser hair removal on the face requires careful consideration of skin sensitivity and hair color.


  • Neck: Both the front and back of the neck can be treated to remove unwanted hair.


  • Underarms: Laser hair removal in the underarm area can provide long-lasting smoothness and reduce the need for constant shaving.


  • Arms: Both the forearms and upper arms can be treated, targeting hair on the surface and even the finer, lighter hairs.



  • Back: Both men and women may opt for laser hair removal on the back to eliminate unwanted hair growth.


  • Bikini Area: Laser hair removal in the bikini area offers more precision and comfort compared to traditional hair removal methods.


  • Legs: Treating the legs with laser hair removal can save a significant amount of time and effort in the long run.


  • Abdomen: This includes the upper and lower abdomen, and the treatment can be tailored to your preferences.


  • Hands and Fingers: Unwanted hair on the hands and fingers can also be effectively treated with laser hair removal.


  • Feet and Toes: Similar to the hands, laser hair removal can target unwanted hair on the feet and toes.


  • Buttocks: Laser hair removal for the buttocks area can provide a smoother appearance and enhance comfort.


  • Intimate Areas: Laser hair removal for the intimate areas, such as the Brazilian or Hollywood styles, is a popular choice for those seeking a clean and well-groomed look.

We also offer full body laser hair removal for those looking for mulitple areas of the body in the same session.




No, we offer laser hair removal for all skin colors at VIVA. This is a common concern as many lasers in the past and IPL are not safe for all skin colors. By using a laser machine with two optional settings we can target different hair thickness and keep all skin colors safe. However, laser works by targeting dark hair on light skin so you may need more sessions if you have very light hair or darker skin.




Yes you can- the main contrainidication that may occur in the summer is tanning. This is because tanning can affect the safety and effectiveness of the procedure due to the interaction between the laser and the melanin in the skin. Here is why tanned skin should be avoided for laser hair removal:

  • Skin Sensitivity: Tanning, whether from natural sunlight, tanning beds, or self-tanning products, can increase the sensitivity of your skin. Laser treatments may already cause some discomfort or redness, and tanning can exacerbate these effects, potentially leading to more irritation or even mild burns.


  • Skin Pigmentation: Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin in hair follicles. Darker skin caused by tanning increases the overall melanin content in your skin, making it more challenging for the laser to distinguish between the pigment in the hair and the pigment in the surrounding skin. This can lead to less effective treatments and an increased risk of side effects like burns or skin discoloration.


  • Uneven Results: If you tan between laser hair removal sessions, your skin tone might become uneven. This can make it difficult for the laser to consistently target the hair follicles, potentially leading to varied results and the need for additional sessions.If you want the best results we recommend temporarily elimnate toipical tanners and tanning in the area that you are lasering.


  • Post-Treatment Care: After laser hair removal, your skin can be sensitive and might require extra care. Tanning, whether natural or artificial, can hinder the healing process and increase the risk of complications.


To ensure the best possible results and minimize the risk of complications, we recommend avoiding tanning for at least four weeks before and after each laser hair removal session. If you’re interested in laser hair removal, our licensed and experienced practitioners can provide personalized advice based on your skin type, hair color, and treatment goals during your free consulation and patch test.

Frequently Asked Questions

When performed by our professionals using appropriate equipment, laser hair removal is generally safe. However, there can be risks of burns, skin discoloration, or other side effects if not done correctly. This is why  Choosing a reputable clinic with experienced practitioners is essential to not only results but patient safety.

Most people describe the sensation as mild discomfort or a slight snapping feeling against the skin. Our lasers include cooling to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Multiple sessions are typically required because hair grows in cycles. On average, 6 to 8 sessions are recommended, with several weeks between each session. The exact number of sessions varies based on individual factors which can be discussed at your consultation. Most patients find 10 sessions for their first treatment is adequate.

No. However, laser hair removal can lead to a significant reduction in hair growth, but it might not result in complete permanent hair removal. Maintenance sessions are usually recommended yearly to keep hair growth reduced and results maintained.
