At NYLC, we can say with confidence that our laser provides long-lasting and effective results – we wouldn’t provide the treatments if it didn’t! In this blog post, we’ll be delving into what exactly makes our laser hair removal treatments so effective. Read on and discover more about this beauty phenomenon as we bust the myths.

NYLC Laser Hair Removal: What You Should Know

If you’re considering laser hair removal but you’re unsure about how effective it might be, you’re in the right place. Take a look at these 5 things you need to know about laser hair removal here at NYLC:


1. Our laser is the best on the market

We use a gold-standard, medical-grade Candela laser for all of our treatments, which is the best and strongest hair removal laser on the market. With a built-in cooling system, our machine provides the most effective laser treatment while also keeping clients comfortable by cooling the skin immediately after the laser hits. The Candela laser targets the hair follicles and does not damage any of the surrounding skin. We always make sure to administer a patch test for every client before we go ahead with treatment.


2. We ensure our clients are prepared for each treatment

We offer free initial laser hair removal consultations to clients so that we can make sure any questions are answered and that the client is fully prepared for their first treatment with us. This goes for all procedures, not just laser hair removal. Ensuring our clients have made all the necessary preparations (for example, shaving the area that needs to be treated before coming into the clinic and avoiding wearing products such as deodorant) is part of what makes our treatments so effective. If you ever have any questions prior to your treatment, you can always contact us directly.


3. Our aestheticians have years of experience

All beauty specialists administering your treatment will be highly trained, with years of experience in aesthetics under their belts. During your treatment they will be able to answer any questions you have about how the laser works, and also make sure that all necessary safety precautions are in place.


4. Laser hair removal is proven to have lasting results

If you’re still wondering whether laser hair removal really works, you only have to ask our happy clients. We’ve treated thousands of clients at our London-based clinics and we’re proud to have countless positive reviews about our standard of service and quality of results. A lot of our clients have seen the effects of laser hair removal lasting many years without the need for a single top up treatment. If you’d like to read more about how the treatment works, you can find everything you need to know in this blog post.

5. We cater our treatments to each client

One of the great things about laser hair removal at NYLC is that our specialists can cater the treatments to each individual client. Our Candela laser will have a different effect on your hair follicles depending on your skin type and hair type. Our aestheticians will be able to determine this following your first consultation, and when it is time for your treatment, they will adjust the strength of the laser accordingly so as not to damage the skin or cause any pigmentation. We will usually change the strength of the laser at each session, but you will always receive a patch test beforehand to ensure you do not have any adverse reactions.
