Having excess hair can often be uncomfortable and in time can reduce an individuals’ self-confidence. Many people resort to either shaving, threading or waxing in order to get rid of unwanted hair, however these methods become monotonous, difficult and painful, leaving the hair to come back quicker and thicker than before. At Skinlogica our Laser Hair Removal offers people in and around London a permanent solution to unwanted hair and in the long run saves both time and money.

With years of experience in Laser Hair Removal, we aim to achieve a painless hair removal treatment for all skin types.
At Skinlogica we use the most sophisticated technology for our Laser Hair Removal treatments
Choosing the right Laser Hair Removal treatment is what makes the difference in permmnent hair removal. At Skinlogica we use the ND:YAG Cool Glide 1064 for Laser Hair Removal. It was the first laser that was FDA approved for permanent hair reduction and is suitable for all skin types. This latest laser technology has become renowned and is endorsed by physicians worldwide. The Cool Glide can treat large areas on both men and woman. Unlike other systems it can detect and treat fine hair as well as coarse, thick hair. The hand piece is known to increase the client’s comfort and reduces any unpleasant skin reaction that might occur from other lasers. When you come in to Skinlogica for your free consultation, we will study the anatomy of your hair follicle and then set the laser to precisely match your follicle size, in order to gain the best results. Our technology is ideal to perform laser hair removal on dark skin and dark hair. You will need to book a free consultaion and test patch before treatment will start. We will answer your questions about laser hair removal.
What is the difference between genuine Laser and IPL?
One of the common questions or misconceptions associated with laser hair removal is the difference between laser and IPL (Intense Light Therapy). Many people are unaware that there is a difference and only a few understand how each works and the dangers associated with IPL when it comes to hair removal. IPL was originally created as flash lamps to treat other skin conditions such as skin rejuvenation or for thread vein removal treatments. Doctors and patients observed hair loss as a result of these treatments thus genuine lasers were then developed to specifically target and perform laser hair reduction.
In theory, Laser and IPL work in similar ways as they both emit light to target the melanin (or colour) within the hair which eventually kills the follicle. However, genuine Lasers are single wavelength devices. This means that the light source is actually targeting each individual hair. IPL on the other hand, emits a spectrum of wavelengths which then produces scattered results as it doesn’t target the follicle correctly.
Skinlogica offers safe Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin in London
Skinlogica Laser Hair Removal Clinic offers safe and effective laser hair removal treatment for Asian and Black skin. People who have darker skin should be very careful about their laser treatments, as not all laser technologies are designed to treat darker skin tones. The clinic you choose to have your treatments with needs to be honest, safe and reliable and will have to explain in detail if laser treatment is right for you.
At Skinlogica our staff are highly trained and experienced as they have treated thousands of dark skin patients successfully over the years; so you know you are in safe hands. At Skinlogica we use the Cutera Cool Glide ND YAG 1064 Laser technology as we are able to adjust the settings to almost any skin type. Black women, Latino women, Indian women and Middle Eastern women with darker skin have always been sceptical about Laser Hair Removal because the wrong laser equipment can often cause burning and scarring; however our technology is safe and FDA approved.
In 1975, Thomas B Fitzpatrick, MD, PhD, of Harvard Medical School, developed a classification system for all skin types. This system was based on a person’s response to sun exposure in terms of the degree of burning and tanning that an individual might experienced. For successful removal of hair, veins, wrinkles, sun spots, and scars using Laser technology, it is necessary determine your correct skin type.
TYPE 1: Highly sensitive, always burns and never tans.
Example: Red hair with freckles or Albino
TYPE 2: Very sensitive to sun, burns easily and minimal tan
Example: Fair-skinned, fair-haired Caucasians
TYPE 3: Sun sensitive skin, sometimes burns and slowly tans to light brown.
Example: Darker Caucasians, European mix
TYPE 4: Minimal sun sensitivity, minimal burns and always tans to moderate brown.
Example: Mediterranean, European, Asian, Hispanic, American Indian
TYPE 5: Sun-insensitive skin, rarely burns and tans well
Example: Hispanics, Afro-American, Middle Eastern
TYPE 6: Sun-insensitive, never gets burnt and deeply pigmented
Example: Afro-American, African, Middle Eastern
Why choose Laser Hair Removal at Skinlogica?
At Skinlogica we offer a full course of 6 to 8 treatments which results in a permanent reduction of hair growth. However, this is dependent on the individual’s skin type and hair. We also provide our customers a discount on their annual top up sessions. Our laser specialist only works with the latest medical grade laser technology that can guarantee you smoother skin all year round and we wish to bring you a virtually pain free experience.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?
At Skinlogica we find that some people experience a mild prickling sensation, whilst others have a pain free experience. We like to guide our customers through each treatment, in order for them to feel more comfortable during their Laser Hair Removal. We often find that the more relaxed you are, the less pain you feel.
WHAT IS A PATCH TEST?
During our consultation we will require a patch test. This will allow us to check whether your skin is suitable for Laser Hair Removal. Our laser hair specialist will inspect your skin and the thickness of your hair in the areas you want treated in order to set the right setting on our Laser Hair Removal machine. Then a small area will be exposed to the laser light. This procedure only takes a few minutes.
AM I SUITABLE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL AT SKINLOGICA?
When it comes to Laser Hair Removal, the laser can only target pigments. So, as long as your hair is not red, white or grey, you should be a suitable candidate for our Laser Hair Removal treatment.
HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED A LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?
At Skinlogica we recommend that you have about 6 to 8 treatments to get the maximum benefit.
Your Laser Hair Removal treatment is dependent on the cycle of your hair growth. Facials areas can be every 4 weeks, whereas the body can be performed every 6 weeks.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE-EFFECTS TO LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
We find that most people only experience a mild redness, which tends to heal after a few minutes. If the area is a little sensitive after it’s been treated, we apply Aloe Vera gel or spray to calm this down.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE BEFORE MY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?
This is something that will be discussed during our consultation. We advise our customers to only shave and not to wax, thread or use hair removal cream during any treatment. Furthermore, avoid sun exposure as this can make your Laser Hair Removal less effective and could cause complications. However if you are in the sun, we advise you to purchase our SPF50 sun-block.
I had hardly any eyebrows, mostly from overzealous threading and ageing. I decided to get the semi-permanent eyebrows done by Nisha. At my consultation, we discussed shape and thickness, I needed a thicker brow according to my face shape. The pain was bearable. Peeling did occur but that was part of the process and I was informed about this by Nisha at the consultation. Now my eyebrows look great and have thrown out all my pencils etc. They look so good and 100% better than pencils which give a more made up look. Now I just put my makeup and there’s no need to even touch up my eyebrows. They look very natural and I have received many compliments about them. Thanks Nisha for my perfect eyebrows and giving me my confidence back! Can’t stop looking at them in the mirror. Definitely would recommend!
I used this place only once and I'm thinking of going again. I cant say anything about laser removal however I'm pleased with the owner who due to an error on wahanda (I paid silly price) honored the deal. She could have refused to treat me. Thats how you run business. Well done
I thought about laser hair removal for years, I told myself it was something I would get done when I had some spare cash. After a making up yet another excuse of why I couldn't join my daughter and other half to go swimming (the real reason being I was in between wax apts), I thought enough is enough and unwanted hair was not just an inconvenience but effecting my quality of life. I' ve had two laser treatments and the results are amazing. It sounds dramatic to say but it's changed my life through changing the way i see my body. I feel liberated to be able to say yes to going swimming or wearing shorts in the gym whenever I like. So in short my advice would be don't put it off! As is evident from all the reviews, Nesha a delightful clinician that puts you at ease. It's clear from her professional demeanor she's highly skilled and experienced.
I had semi permanent eyebrows done by the lovely Nisha. She was so nice and professional, she explained to me every details what was going to be done and keep asking me every steps of the procedure if I'm happy so far. All I can say I highly recommended this place!
Great treatment with some added pampering! I've had laser facials before at other clinics and they have always felt like more like a procedure than an actual treatment....normally a quick cleanse and prep of thes skin, a blast of the laser, some SPF cream applied and your on yor way. With Nisha, her 30minute laser facial is very much a 'treat'-ment from start to finish. Nisha clearly knows her stuff and is very personable, talking you through each stage of the facial. After the laser, Nisha applies a series of serums and masks which she massages into the skin. The facial massage is very relaxing and is great pamepring element of the treatment...I only wish that it lasted longer! Since my first treatment I have now booked a course of 8 and always look forward to my next treatment. Since having the facials I have noticed that my skin appears firmer, plumper and surface blemishes have faded. The Skinlogica clinic is a lovely environment....modern, very clean and always smells amazing! The aromatherapy vapours relax you from the moment you enter :)
I only booked in for a consultation with Nisha. What I can say is that she is a professional and lovely lady. she recommended that I did not really need any treatment and that is a great sign of someone that is not trying to just take your money.
From the get go Nisha has made me feel very welcome and comfortable, she is very professional and the treatments that I'm getting have really changed my life!! I would recommend Skinlogica to everyone I know. The place is clean and had a real good feel when you walk in. There is parking, bus stops and tube station in walking distance to get there.
Highly recommend this salon. Nisha is lovely, makes you feel really comfortable and gives you honest advice. I have personally found the skin rejuvenation facials incredible for my skin - so great in fact that I've got my sister and mum hooked too!
I would definitely recommend skinlogica to all my friends and families. The owner (Nisha) is very helpful, kind and always gives clear advice on my treatments and aftercare. We also are able to contact her, after hours, for any questions if unsure about our treatments. I definitely like how she introduces me to any new products and takes our feedback into consideration. Thankyou Nisha.
