Know The Facts
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. During laser hair removal a beam of light is guided over the skin. The light energy is absorbed by areas of high pigment/melanin e.g. hairs, where it transfers as heat energy. The heat energy heats the hair and in the process damages the follicle, the follicle is then unable to grow new hairs.
What technology do we use?
At Skin HQ we use the award-winning Cynosure Apogee Elite laser. The Cynosure laser uses a dual-wavelength system which consists of a 755nm Alexandrite laser and a high powered 1064 nm Nd: YAG laser. The Cynosure Apogee Elite allows us to target a variety of different hair colours and skin types, delivering reliable and effective hair removal reduction.
Who can have it?
The Cynosure Apogee Elite allows us to treat a wide variety of skin tones, as the laser works by targeting colour/pigment in the hair follicle. We find that the best results come from clients with darker hair and the only people who may not qualify for treatment are those with red, grey or extremely light blonde hair.
If a client has underlying medical conditions, we may not be able to treat you. We always recommend coming in for free skin consultation and patch test, where our highly trained laser specialists can assess your suitability for the treatment.
Where can I have it?
You can have laser hair removal in any area you want! We are one of the few clinics to offer a full body option, where we treat every single area from the eyebrows down in one session and for an outstanding price. If you’ve got hair, we can laser it.

“Sidra at Bradford is fab! She’s so friendly, polite and professional. Feel so comfortable around her when I get a full body laser even though I’m so under confident!”
S N – Bradford
“I am coming to the end of my laser course with Skin Hq and couldn’t be happier with the results. I have had such a warm welcome on every visit so will be continuing to visit the clinic for facials. Fabulous service!”
Charlotte Al-Hadithi – Liverpool
“I found an offer on Instagram. To good to be true I thought. But after my consultation I was happy to book my treatment. I am currently receiving full body laser treatment by N-dia. I was nervous about my first session and she made me feel at ease. I’ve had 3 sessions now and I noticed results after my first session. I’m really pleased so far. The clinic is clean and staff are welcoming. Definately recommend them.”
Binal Patel – Birmingham
“Very polite and professional service indeed. Throughout my session I was made to feel so relaxed and comfortable. I would defiantly recommend Skin HQ clinic to others. I’ve had other laser done in the past but this Cynosure machine used here is pain free and effective. Thank you very much for the service provided- much appreciated”

BUY A COURSE
95% of customers prefer to buy a course than individual appointments. This is because a course guarantees better results.
What areas does Full Body include?
Our Full Body option includes every single area on your body from your eyebrows down. If you wish to exclude some areas from your treatment, this is absolutely fine too!
How many sessions do I need and how often will I need to come in?
The amount of sessions an individual will need varies on their skin type and hair density. On average, 6 sessions will provide a 50% hair reduction and 12 sessions may give a 85% hair reduction. Results vary from individual to individual and it is vital to adhere to the correct aftercare for the treatment.
We recommend coming in for your laser hair removal treatment every 4-6 weeks.
Will I be completely hair free after treatment?
We cannot guarantee that a client will be completely hair free, although most people do see amazing results. We change the setting on the laser on each session, to ensure clients see the best possible result.
Is it permanent?
Laser hair removal can provide a major reduction in hair growth, although you will need to maintain your lasered areas with top-up sessions every 6-12 months.
Is it really painless?
Most people are surprised by how pain-free laser hair removal is. It is much more comfortable than waxing, although it is largely dependant on your pain threshold. It is often described as a ‘rubber band snap’ feeling. Our Cynosure Apogee Elite laser has SmartCool technology which maximises client comfort during and after treatment.
