The number of customers getting laser hair removal in London is up by a seventh at sk:n clinics London. sk:n clinics staff believe that while such treatment has been popularised by celebrities, word is spreading that it's an affordable and effective solution for everyone.
Media coverage of laser hair removal exploded after reality TV superstar Kim Kardashian, a regular user of the treatment, included a trip to a clinic in her show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
She's not alone though. Another high-profile laser hair removal user is actress Alyssa Milano, who used the treatment to remove naturally dark skin hair. sk:n staff have noted this shows that getting laser hair removal is nothing to be ashamed of, and that even glamorous celebrities can find it a useful option.
Laser hair removal works in a simple but effective manner. Melanin, the pigment that colours hair, works as an excellent carrier for the laser, which can therefore go straight to the hair follicle itself. The energy of the laser disrupts the follicle, meaning not only that the existing hair will fall out within a few weeks, but that new hair is dramatically slower to grow back. The treatment isn't painful in the same way as some cosmetic surgery, and steps are taken to reduce any discomfort.
sk:n clinics now has nine branches offering laser hair removal treatments in London, including new outlets in Wigmore Street and West Thurrock. Every clinic is headed up by highly experienced and qualified medical professionals who are respected in their fields.
The great news is that while the treatment came to attention as a celebrity activity, laser hair removal costs in London don't require celebrity budgets. Prices vary depending on the area of the body being treated, and there are discounts for multiple-treatment courses which greatly increase the effectiveness of the treatment.
