A whopping £528 million a year is spent on waxing, shaving, plucking and depilatories in the UK, no wonder Laser Hair Removal is on 1 out of every 3 people’s wish list. It’s one of the most popular treatments at Samantha Ward Aesthetics.
Laser Hair Removal will save money, time and inconvenience in removing unwanted hair. With Laser Hair Removal, you can also say goodbye to ingrowing hairs and shaving rash!
At Samantha Ward Aesthetics, we use the ‘Award Winning Soprano XLI’ machine by Alma Lasers. It is the world’s first laser hair removal system that is pain free. We are one of the very few clinics in the UK (the only in Cumbria!) to have the newest system available which enables us to treat our clients successfully with most clients seeing a dramatic difference after just ONE treatment!
The Soprano is a medical grade 4 laser with FDA clearance and CE marks. It’s the safest and most effective laser all year round compared with traditional methods of IPL and other pulsed lasers. You will not have to avoid the sun or cover up on holidays!
With the newest and most advanced technology in this cutting edge system, we are able to treat any skin type on both men and women on any areas of the body. Clients describe it as a hot stone massage, feeling a warm sensation during the treatment.
Laser Hair Removal works by thermally destroying the hair bulb which is the cell responsible for re-growth. There is no particular downtime with laser hair removal, however, on the more sensitive of skins slight reddening of the area may appear but this quickly diminishes.
All practitioners are fully qualified with extensive experience and have all been trained by the manufacturers themselves.
Treatment time - between 30 seconds and 30 minutes depending on the area being treated Treatment frequency - every 4-6 weeks A course of 8 treatments are recommended All consultations are free – you have nothing to lose

HOW LONG DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL LAST?
TO DATE, THERE IS NO LASER EQUIPMENT THAT EXISTS IN THE WORLD THAT WILL PERMANENTLY REMOVE ALL OF YOUR UNWANTED HAIR. PLEASE DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR! THE HUMAN BODY SIMPLY DOESN'T WORK IN A WAY THAT IT WILL NEVER RE GROW HAIR. HOWEVER, HAIR GROWTH WILL BE PERMANENTLY REDUCED. AFTER EACH LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT, YOU WILL HAVE A HAIR-FREE PERIOD. AS YOUR TREATMENTS PROGRESS, YOUR HAIR-FREE PERIOD WILL BE LONGER AND LONGER. ONCE YOU HAVE FINISHED YOUR SERIES OF TREATMENTS, THE HAIR-FREE PERIOD IS NOTICEABLY LONGER, LASTING FOR SEVERAL MONTHS OR YEARS, EACH INDIVIDUAL WILL BE DIFFERENT. TO MAINTAIN YOUR RESULTS AND LENGTHEN YOUR HAIR-FREE PERIOD, WE RECOMMEND A YEARLY FOLLOW UP SESSION TO MAINTAIN YOUR DESIRED RESULTS. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT SOME OF YOUR HAIR WILL GROW BACK; HOWEVER, IT WILL BE A REDUCED AMOUNT, A FINER VERSION OR A COMBINATION OF BOTH.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL HURT?
IN MOST INSTANCES, PEOPLE DESCRIBE THE EXPERIENCE AS A “WARM STONE MASSAGE” AND FIND THE SOPRANO LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT COMFORTABLE, IN COMPARISON TO OTHER HAIR REMOVAL METHODS AND LASERS. THIS IS ONE OF FEW LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCEDURES WHERE NUMBING CREAM IS NOT NECESSARY. IT TRULY DEPENDS UPON YOUR HAIR THICKNESS AND SKIN TYPE.
IS THIS HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR MY SKIN?
WITH THE INDUSTRY GOLD STANDARD 810 DIODE LASER AND ITS UNIQUE PATENTED HIGH REPETITION RATE AND LOW FLUENCE DELIVERY SYSTEM MAKES SOPRANO THE SAFEST LASER AVAILABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES. DARKER SKIN TYPES MAY REQUIRE A NUMBER OF ADDITIONAL TREATMENTS COMPARED TO LIGHTER SKIN.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR MY FIRST SESSION?
SHAVING THE DAY BEFORE OR JUST PRIOR TO TREATMENT IS RECOMMENDED. YOUR AESTHETIC THERAPIST WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH THE APPROPRIATE AFTERCARE ADVICE AND REMIND YOU OF WHEN YOU MAY SHAVE OR TRIM AGAIN. YOU CAN REMOVE THE HAIR BY SHAVING OR TRIMMING AS MUCH AS YOU WANT IN BETWEEN TREATMENTS, WE DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR REGROWTH, UN LIKE WAXING.
