Pulse Light Clinic: Laser hair removal review
Fed up of continually having to remove your body hair? Sure, waxing, shaving or epilating might work for some, but there’s no denying these methods are costly and time consuming.
In search of a long-term solution, we visited Pulse Light Clinic in Fenchurch Street. Favoured by a host of influencers and reality stars, this company has three London clinics, which all use the Gentle Max Pro by Syneron Candela system to remove unwanted hair.
Initially, laser hair removal might sound a little daunting, but we can assure you it is a completely safe procedure. Simply put, the laser’s light pulse targets and damages follicles to prevent growth, while leaving surrounding tissue unaffected.
Our experience began with a free consultation with one of the clinic’s experienced technicians. She explained the treatment plan, and answered our many questions, before carrying out a patch test. As there was no adverse reaction, we were allowed to continue treatment 48 hours later.
If you are wondering what laser feels like, we would describe it as a hot pinching sensation that is similar to waxing in terms of “pain”. But, unlike waxing, any discomfort is instantly soothed by a clever cooling system attached to the laser, as well as aloe vera gel applied at the end of the session.
A huge advantage laser has over any other form of hair removal is the speed at which it can be carried out. Of course, this depends on the area being treated, but appointments can take as little as five minutes for upper lip and 20 minutes for full legs.
Laser hair removal is also extremely effective on ingrown hairs: after two to four visits, there is a significant, if not complete, removal of these. Bumps, redness and skin pigmentation clear up too, leaving skin looking smooth and healthy.
Following our first session, we noticed hair growth had slowed down considerably, taking around two weeks, at which point dead hairs started to shed. We did notice some redness immediately afterwards, but this subsided after a few hours. Results continued to improve with each treatment and, by our fourth session, hair had reduced by about 80%. Six to eight treatments are recommended for optimum results.
Throughout our experience, employees at Pulse Light Clinic were incredibly welcoming and our technician made us feel completely comfortable. Additionally, there are several cost-effective packages available, as well as frequent offers (including 50% off this month) to ensure your journey to being hair-free won’t break the bank.
