HOW LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORKS
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.
THE BEST LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT
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.
HOW MANY SESSIONS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL DO I NEED?
How many seessions you will need to get the best results deends on many factors such as the thickness and darkness of the hair, regular appointment attendance and good at home aftercare. 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.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL PRICING
We offer laser for the affordable prices of 3 sessions from just £108,however many clinics charge much 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.

This step is essential as pre-screening medical history as well as a patch test is required before undertaking laser hair removal treatment. Your therapist will perform a patch test to test out the laser settings to ensure a safe and comfortable treatment for you. During the patch test and consultation your therapist will recommend a number of sessions required to get your desired results.

- Pick your number of sessions and book your first laser hair removal treatment.
- Attend first laser hair removal and enjoy hair free skin.
WHAT AREAS CAN I GET LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal can be performed on various areas of the body, both large and small. The treatment 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.
- Chest: Men often choose laser hair removal for the chest area to achieve a groomed and hair-free look.
- 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.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL BEST FOR LIGHT SKIN?
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.
CAN I GET LASER IN THE SUMMER?
Yes you can! The only 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.
