Treatment for Unwanted Hair Growth Bristol

*OFFER* Buy one get one half price

Unwanted hair growth can occur in any area of the body and can really affect self esteem as well as being difficult to maintain.

Unwanted hair growth or excessive hair growth is a common concern. Hair growth is controlled by underlying factors triggered in puberty to medical conditions such as hormone disorders (PCOS) and side effects from medication and medical treatments. Hair growth patterns are also hereditary. Or, you might just be fed up plucking, shaving, waxing and tweezing!

Please note: We do not currently treat male intimate areas.

Unwanted hair removal at Zapp Laser Studio Bristol

We use CynoSure’s Elite iQ at our Brsitol clinic for unwanted hair growth, which is the most advanced and effective device for laser hair removal on the market and is FDA cleared to treat all skin types safely. It features a unique Skintel melanin reader which enables the user to determine the average melanin density in the clients skin. Understanding how much melanin is in the skin helps the practitioner choose better treatment settings for superior results, while minimising the risk of over-treatment. The Elite iQ is also the fastest and most powerful device of its kind meaning much faster treatments as well as fewer treatments needed to achieve the desired outcome. Traditional hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing and tweezing can time consuming and expensive. Laser hair removal with the Elite iQ can permanently reduce hair on all parts of the body within 6-8 treatments.


What to expect

  • The area to be treated must be tan free including free of tanning products.
  • The area needs to be shaven 24 hours before the treatment.
  • The treatment area will be cleaned.
  • The practitioner will use the Skintel melanin reader in the area to be treated and adjust the settings according to your specific skin type and colour/density of hair.
  • The practitioner will then guide the Elite iQ handpiece and cooling device over the treatment area.
  • The handpiece will emit beams of laser energy which are absorbed by the hair follicles and converted to heat.
  • Most people say it’s mildly uncomfortable and feels like a rubber band flicking against the skin.
  • The heat stops the hair follicle from growing again.
  • A course of 6-8 treatments are normally required 6-8 weeks apart.

Causes of unwanted hair growth


Hirsutism is when women have thick, dark hair on their face, neck, chest, tummy, lower back, buttocks or thighs. This extra hair growth often arises from excess male hormones (androgens), primarily testosterone.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

PCOS is a fairly common condition which affects the way a woman’s ovaries work.

Three features of PCOS are:

  • Polycystic ovaries – Ovaries become enlarged and contain follicles, fluid filled sacs which surround the eggs.
  • Irregular periods – Eggs are not released regularly from the ovaries.
  • Unwanted hair growth – High levels of Androgen (Male hormones) in the body.
