Laser Hair Removal Reading
Reading Cosmetic, the leading laser clinic in Reading offering advanced laser hair removal treatments. If you're tired of dealing with the hassles of traditional hair removal methods like shaving or waxing, our state-of-the-art laser technology provides a safe, effective, and long-lasting solution.
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to target and destroy hair follicles. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles, which damages the follicles and inhibits future hair growth. This results in smooth, hair-free skin that lasts much longer than traditional methods.
At our Reading laser clinic, we use the Cynosure Elite Laser, reaching over 4mm into the epidermis and effectively destroys hair follicles. Using variable pulse duration, the Cynosure Elite laser is able to leave all surrounding skin untouched and is suitable for all skin types 1 to 6. The Alexandrite laser is the gold standard for laser hair removal on skin types I-III, and the high powered 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser is the gold standard for skin types IV-VI. The Cynosure Elite laser is a class 4 medical grade laser, approved by the FDA and used worldwide. Using Smart Cool technology to help cool the skin before, during and after the laser treatment, it helps to comfort and minimise side effects.

Long-lasting Results: Our Reading laser hair removal offers longevity compared to temporary methods such as shaving or waxing. While individual results may vary, most clients experience a significant reduction in hair growth after a series of treatments.
Precision and Efficiency: Laser hair removal precisely targets the hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin, with the high grade laser we can treat multiple hair follicles simultaneously, making the procedure faster and more efficient than other methods.
Reduced Ingrown Hairs: Our Reading laser clinic can help you prevent ingrown hairs by destroying the hair follicles responsible for their growth, leading to smoother, blemish-free skin and reducing the likelihood of painful bumps or irritation.
Convenience and Comfort: Our Reading laser hair removal eliminates the need for constant shaving, waxing appointments, or messy creams. Once you've completed your treatment sessions, you can enjoy the convenience of hair-free skin without the hassle of daily maintenance.
Cost-effective: While laser hair removal may have a higher upfront cost compared to traditional methods, it can be more cost-effective in the long term. With permanent hair reduction, you'll save money on regular purchases of razors, shaving creams, or waxing appointments.
Improved Skin Quality: The treatment can help reduce the appearance of folliculitis, razor bumps, and other skin irritations associated with traditional hair removal methods. Laser energy stimulates collagen production, leaving your skin smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking.
The Hair Removal Procedure
The treatment area should be clean-shaven prior to the procedure
The provider will guide the laser hand piece over the area being treated
The hand piece will emit beams of laser energy, which is absorbed by the hair follicles and converted to heat
This heat disables the hair follicle from future growth
Since our hair grows in cycles, multiple treatments are necessary for desired results. The hair grow cycles are:
Active phase of hair growth.
Lasts for several months.
Best phase for Laser Hair Removal.
During this brief phase, the hair bulb regresses and begins to shrink.
Resting phase of hair growth.
Lasts a few months then hair is released.
Anagen phase begins again.
BEFORE & AFTER

What areas can be treated?
Hair from the face, back, chest, arms, underarms, bikini lines and legs can be treated.
What type of result can I expect?
Expect to see a gradual decrease in the hair thickness and in the amount of hair present.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatments times depend on the size of the area but typically take less than 30 minutes.
What will laser hair removal feel like?
Most people feel only a slight momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure followed by a slight heating of the skin. This typically goes away after the treatment but cooling methods can be used immediately after treatment to help with this sensation.
When can I resume my daily activities?
Typically, there is no downtime and you can return to your daily activities immediately following the procedure.
How many treatments will I need?
Since our hair grows in cycles multiple treatments are often recommended for desired results. Other factors that influence this include hair colour, texture and area being treated.
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Different lasers can effectively treat different skin types. Our laser can be used on a wide range of skin types from very light to very dark skin. During your consultation we will determine the best course of treatment for you based on a variety of factors such as hair colour and hair type.
Can I shave in between laser hair removal sessions?
Yes. In fact, the area needs to be freshly shaved before your treatment session. You may shave the area the day before the treatment or the day of the treatment before coming in for your session. But you should not wax or pluck the hair during the course of your laser sessions.
How far apart are treatment sessions?
It depends on which area is being treated. In general, face, underarms, arms, and bikini are approximately 4-6 weeks apart. Back, chest, and legs are approximately 8-10 weeks apart. During your consultation your treatment course will be discussed.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor redness and/or swelling immediately following the treatment. This usually lasts 2-24 hours. Ask your provider to discuss other possible side effects and the necessary post-treatment care with you.
During your free consultation, we will discuss in detail a treatment plan so that we can address your concerns.
