Myth or Fact?
One of the top concerns about laser hair removal is that it might hurt – quite a lot! So is that true?
The answer is, it depends… so it’s really important to understand why.
Laser hair removal is not a standard treatment. The systems used by clinics and salons vary widely. Older technology and especially IPL can definitely be painful, even if the area is iced first.
Not only that, but the skill and experience of technicians can also vary, as there are no standard training requirements in the UK.
Skin and hair colours are a factor in how comfortable or painful the experience is and finally, certain areas of the body or face are naturally more sensitive than others.
Pain-Free Laser Hair Removal
The good news is that advanced laser systems like Soprano ICE used at Cosmedics Beauty offer a ‘pain-free hair-free’ treatment option.
Soprano ICE incorporates a really efficient cooling mechanism which keeps the skin cool throughout treatment. This is great news for patient comfort but also makes the treatment safer too, as skin cannot overheat.
Laser Hair Removal – Hair and Skin Colours
What’s more, Soprano ICE can be used on all skin/hair colour combinations, including darker skin tones and lighter hair; while older and less advanced machines only really offered results for those with dark hair and pale skin combinations – yet these are still available due to cheaper costs for the salons that use them.
Treatment starts at £35 per session for fingers or toes. A course is recommended for best results, as hair responds to the laser when it is in its active growing phase.

Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon offer a range of advanced hair removal treatments including laser hair removal; as well as waxing, which is still very popular for fast and effective treatment.
