Great! Friendly and professional, made me feel very comfortable. Only just had my first treatment (of 6) but I had promising results even from my test patch (laser hair removal). Would recommend!
CONSULTATION & PATCH TESTS
Our Consultations and patch tests are free with no obligation. We want to ensure that you are completely satisfied before under going treatment. This usually takes up to an hour.

- Contraindications – to ensure you are suitable for treatment
- Your skin type
- Your Hair type
What will happen during my consultation?
We will discuss the following with you during your consultation:
- Treatment goals and expectations
- Current method of hair removal
- The hair growth cycle
- How laser hair removal works
- Different types of laser technology
- The treatment process and factors that will determine your results
- Your medical history and any current medications
- Pre-treatment requirements
- Aftercare requirements
- Cost and frequency of treatments
- Predicated results of the treatment
Once this is completed and you are happy to proceed, we will seek your informed consent to undertake a patch test.
What is a patch test?
We carry out a patch test after your consultation. There are a couple of reasons for carrying out a patch test, the first is to determine what the most effective settings for the laser parameters are in relation to your hair and skin type. Our professional laser practitioner will effectively carry out a patch test for each area of treatment. This is because your hair and skin are not the same everywhere on your body.
Secondly, a patch test will indicate to you and your practitioner any adverse side effects or problems prior to a full session. Since it is carried out on a small patch of skin, if there are any problems they will be minimal. The test is done at least 48 hours before your first treatment, so that any reactions have time to appear and your treatment plan can be adjusted if necessary to ensure effective results with minimal side effects.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for my patch test?
You should make sure that the area to be treated is clean. Avoid shaving so that we can see your hair growth, determine the thickness of hair and skin type. It is vital that you do not remove any hair from the root in the run-up to your treatment, so no plucking, epilating or waxing. This is because the root is needed for the laser to do its job.
What happens after the patch test?
We will contact you 48 hours after the patch test to get some feedback and ascertain if there were any adverse reactions to the patch test. If you are satisfied, we will book you in for your first session towards your goal of permanent hair reduction.
It was such a great experience, Kiran that was responsible for my treatment ensured I felt comfortable at all times and constantly checked up on me during the treatment.

Felt at ease having the treatment done. Kiran also asked me how I felt whilst I was undergoing the treatment to ensure I was okay. Friendly and made me feel at ease.
