Laser Hair Removal London is a technique using a laser beam with controlled pulses of energy to remove body hair. The laser’s energy heats and destroys the hair down to the root without harming the surrounding skin. This method uses FDA APPROVED technology, ensuring safety and effectiveness. It permanently reduces hair growth by 90%.
At Derma Revive Skin Clinic London in Cannon Street, our highly trained laser practitioners have performed over 600,000 treatments across nine clinics since 2008, using the medical-grade, FDA-approved Candela Gentle Max Pro. This technology has dual wavelengths: Nd:Yag & Alexandrite.

Our Laser Therapists are experienced in operating the market-leading Laser Hair Removal technology – Candela Gentlemax Pro, which consists of Alexandrite and ND:Yag, the world’s most efficient hair reduction system and is designed to work for clients with dark hair and lighter skin, while the GentleYAG Pro works best on a darker skin tone.
Laser hair removal is the most effective method for achieving permanent reduction. After 6-8 sessions, you can achieve up to a 90% reduction. Compared this to a lifetime of shaving or waxing, laser hair removal is an investment and more economical in the long run.
The laser is also extremely effective at treating ingrown hairs. After 2-4 sessions, you will notice a significant removal of ingrown hairs, if not complete. The bumps, redness and skin pigmentation caused by ingrown will also clear up, leaving the skin healthier and smoother.
Traditional hair removal methods, such as shaving or waxing, are temporary before hair grows thicker and stronger. This can be especially troubling with facial hair. Shaving and plucking also encourage painful ingrown hairs and can cause annoying skin irritations. That is why more people are choosing lasers for hair removal.
Unlike other hair removal options, our medical-grade Laser Hair Removal means fast, safe, cost-effective, reliable, and permanent hair reduction.
Laser Hair Removal works by directing concentrated light to target the hair follicle at the root. The laser inhibits the hair’s ability to grow without disrupting or damaging the skin’s surface, so even the most sensitive skin can be treated.
We have the most advanced Laser hair removal Technology, meaning you will need fewer sessions compared to other companies.
FDA-approved technology with experienced practitioners administrating the treatment with a safe, trained and skilled approach.
The laser is attracted to the melanin, or colour, in your hair follicles, so the treatment works best on an individual with dark, coarse hair and pale skin — the contrast helps the laser target the hair follicles better. The Candela laser works well on all skin colours and types and almost every type of hair.
Most people experience permanent hair reduction, and it might last for years. But laser hair removal doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal. When hair regrows, it’s usually finer and lighter in colour. You might need maintenance laser treatments for long-term hair reduction.
At Derma Revive, we offer several different types of plans: 0% Finance, Klarna Payments, Go Cardless & in-house payment plans to be able to accommodate all our client needs.

A laser hair removal session can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas treated. Before the session, you’ll be given protective eye gear. Once the session begins, you’ll feel a stinging sensation when the laser becomes active. Will it hurt? It depends on your hair density and thickness, but most of our patients just describe it as a very tolerable prickling sensation, and some feel minimal to no pain.
Laser hair removal uses laser light pulses to target actively growing hair follicles. The melanin in the follicles absorbs the pulses, destroying the hair root and surrounding structures.
Pain levels vary per individual. Some may experience stinging, while others feel minimal discomfort. Clinical staff assess pain tolerance and use methods like a Zimmer chiller, stress balls, and ice packs to enhance comfort.
Laser hair removal involves removing unwanted body hair using intense laser light. The laser applicator passes over the skin, targeting hair follicles beneath the surface and damaging them with heat to prevent regrowth.
After 6-8 laser sessions, a 90% reduction in hair is expected. Results depend on skin type, hair area and colour, and certain medical conditions.
Preparation includes shaving 24-48 hours before the session, avoiding other hair removal methods, discontinuing waxing or plucking six weeks prior, avoiding sun exposure and spray tans two weeks beforehand, and avoiding certain medications. Loose clothing and a cleansed treatment area are recommended.
