Where To Go & Who To See For Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal has come a long way in recent years. Not only is it now suitable for most skin tones and hair types, it’s also more affordable and less painful. Considering giving it a go? A reputable therapist and clinic are the keys to effective, long-lasting results – which is why we’ve rounded up the places we trust for best results.

Thérapie Clinic

Best For: Accessibility & Ease

Why We Rate It: Thérapie Clinic has more than 60 locations across the UK and Ireland and its most-requested treatment is laser hair removal. The clinics use something called Cynosure IQ machines, which caters to all skin types and is designed to eliminate up to 90% of hair for good after just ten sessions; on average, each session kills off 8-10% of hair regrowth. You’re in safe hands too, with medically trained doctors who are highly experienced for the safest and gentlest results.

London Premier Laser & Skin

Best For: All Skin Tones 

Why We Rate It: Promising up to a 90% reduction in body hair, London Premier has been voted one of the best clinics for laser hair removal. With eight sites across London, Surrey and Kent, they’re accessible and offer plenty of affordable treatment plans. Popular areas they treat include the legs, back, chest, bikini line and underarms, but they cater to many more. Plus, if you have a darker skin tone, they offer a special service with a unique laser to prevent hyperpigmentation. Always book an e-consultation first to check you’re eligible and to share any other skincare concerns before taking the plunge.

Skin Matters Studio

Best For: Quick Results 

Why We Rate It: Offering bespoke treatments with the latest skincare technology, Joanne Evans’ Skin Matters Studio is one of the most relaxing spaces we’ve tried. The calm environment offers an exceptional service that feels more like a pamper session than a grooming necessity. Using an Ellipse SWT removal device, hair follicles are destroyed using controlled pulses of light and heat, so new hairs can't grow back. You’ll need a series of treatments for long-term results but expect to see a visible difference after just a couple of sessions.

EF Medispa

Best For: Sensitive Skin 

Why We Rate It: With over ten years of experience in laser hair removal, you can be sure you’re in good hands at EF Medispa. The therapists are incredibly careful and considerate, so the whole procedure is taken very slowly. Using the Soprano Platinum laser, pain is minimal – at most you’ll feel a gentle warming sensation during your first few sessions. They advise six sessions in total, all of which are spaced four to six weeks apart to keep sensitivity at bay.

Young Ldn

Best For: Varying Hair Types

Why We Rate It: Young Ldn is often recommended for its top-quality laser hair removal. Not least because the service it offers treats all skin tones and most hair types. Using a combination of something called Nd:YAG and Alexandrite lasers, the treatment targets large surface areas with wavelengths that keep pain to a minimum – fewer pulses are needed with these types of devices. It also targets follicles deep down at the root for longer-lasting results and gets into all those hard-to-reach areas for optimum smoothness. Plus, prices start at just £50 for smaller areas, which is pretty competitive.

SK:N

Best For: Affordable Treatments

Why We Rate It: For effective treatments on a budget, you can’t beat the SK:N clinics. Accessible nationwide, they’re the UK’s leading laser specialists, and often group treatment courses together (around six) for a more cost-effective plan. Offering removal for the chin, jawline, upper lip, bikini line and lower legs (to name a few), there’s something for everyone. What’s more, SK:N clinics offer a free, aftercare product package to ensure skin stays smooth, calm and irritation-free, while also protecting it from sun exposure.

Urban Retreat At The White House

Best For: The Luxe Experience

Why We Rate It: For a bit of luxury, look no further than Urban Retreat at The White House. They use Soprano Titanium – an award-winning hair removal device – that’s also FDA approved, to treat all skin types and tones. While more expensive than others on this list, you get your money’s worth for invaluable knowledge and speedy sessions that are virtually pain-free. Work for the NHS? As a thank you, they’re giving key workers a special 15% discount. Just note, a consultation and patch test will be required before any treatment.
