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

  1. The treatment area should be clean-shaven prior to the procedure

  2. The provider will guide the laser hand piece over the area being treated

  3. The hand piece will emit beams of laser energy, which is absorbed by the hair follicles and converted to heat

  4. 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:


Anagen Phase

  • Active phase of hair growth.

  • Lasts for several months.

  • Best phase for Laser Hair Removal.

Catagen Phase

  • During this brief phase, the hair bulb regresses and begins to shrink.

Telogen Phase

  • Resting phase of hair growth.

  • Lasts a few months then hair is released. 

  • Anagen phase begins again.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to target and remove unwanted hair from specific areas of the body. It's a safe and effective method for long-term hair reduction.

How does laser hair removal work?

Our Cynosure Elite Laser, reaches over 4mm into the epidermis and effectively destroys hair follicles. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light that's absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. This light energy transforms into heat, damaging the follicles and inhibiting future hair growth without affecting the surrounding skin. Take a look at our cynosure laser before and after pictures.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Most people describe the sensation as mild discomfort or a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Our Reading laser hair removal clinic uses Smart Cool technology to help cool the skin before, during and after the laser treatment, helping to comfort and minimise side effects.

How many sessions are required for effective hair removal?

The number of sessions required varies based on individual factors like skin type, hair colour, and the treatment area. Typically, a series of sessions spaced a few weeks apart are needed for optimal results due to the hair growth cycle. Other factors that influence this include hair colour, texture and area being treated.

Are there any side effects of our Reading laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is suitable for various body parts, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, chest, back, and more. It's a versatile treatment capable of addressing unwanted hair in multiple areas.

Which areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?

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.

Is laser hair removal suitable for all skin types?

Advancements in technology have made laser hair removal suitable for a wide range of skin tones. However, the effectiveness may vary based on the contrast between hair colour and skin tone. Our laser practitioners in Reading will assess your skin and hair to determine the most suitable treatment plan for you.

Is there any preparation needed before a laser hair removal session?

It's advisable to avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and plucking or waxing the treatment area for a few weeks before the session. Shaving the area is typically recommended before the treatment.

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 long does each session take, and what's the downtime?

Session durations vary depending on the treatment area, but they can range from a few minutes to an hour, averaging typically less than 30 minutes. There's usually no downtime, and our clients can resume their regular activities immediately after the session.

How far apart are treatment sessions?


This is based on which area is being treated. In general, face, underarms, arms, and bikini are approximately 4-6 weeks apart. The back, chest, and legs are approximately 8-10 weeks apart. During your consultation, your treatment course will be discussed.
