Laser Hair Removal

The Skin Quartz has invested in the most advanced Laser Hair Removal treatment, the Cynosure Elite+. The Elite+ is a true laser that provides better client results in less sessions than the cheap, less effective diode or IPL lasers found in most other laser hair removal clinics in Manchester.

Effective Treatment for All Skin Types

Laser Hair Removal is an absolute must for anyone wanting to say goodbye to shaving or waxing with permanent hair removal. Aside from laser being a pain-free process that permanently removes the hairs from the area of your body being treated, it doesn’t come with all the horrible side effects of waxing or shaving such as rashes, ingrown hairs, scars, cuts or irritation. Unlike waxing in between laser treatments you can continue to shave so you don’t have to let your hair grow out.

Skin Quartz has invested in the most cutting edge laser hair removal system with the Cunosure Elite+ prioritising client results over profit. The Cynosure laser system is safe, fast, inexpensive and a simple process that typically requires 4 – 6 treatments for completete removal of hair from any area of the body.  Clients will typically see a 60% reduction after their first session.

Our Cynosure laser system delivers exceptional results across all skin types and uses an air-cooling system that makes the treatment pain-free. 

We offer a free consultation at our luxury Manchester city centre clinic with where you’ll get a free patch test so you can be sure that laser is right for you.

CynoSure Elite + FAQs

Laser hair removal works by passing a light beam through the unwanted hair area which is then absorbed by melanin (colour within the hair). This generates heat, which damages the blood supply feeding the hair and disabling the hair forming cells. If the hair follicle does not contain any pigment, the laser will not target it. In other words, if hair is grey, white, blonde or red, laser hair removal will be ineffective.

We use the CynoSure Elite + system which is considered the gold standard in laser technology. The laser uses cooling technology which works before, during and after each pulse to ensure high comfort for all laser hair removal treatments.

Yes, the CynoSure Elite + combines a high-power 755nm Alexandrite laser and CynoSure’s proven long-pulse 1064nm Nd-YAG laser for safe, effective high-volume hair removal on all skin types.
