Laser Hair Removal…Are you tired of time-consuming and expensive solutions such as waxing and shaving? The Premier Laser Clinic offers a great alternative so you never have to worry about hair removal again. Unlike Intense Pulse Light (IPL), the laser beam is made of precisely controlled pulses of energy; it is absorbed by the melanin or pigment in the hair and reaches into the hair follicles that lie beneath the skin. The energy heats the hair right down to the bottom of the root, safely destroying it without damaging surrounding tissue of the skin. For more info go to londonpremierlaser.co.uk
