Excessive or Unwanted Hair

Unwanted hair can be a pain to deal with - after endless plucking and shaving, the problem just keeps on returning! Waxing products can be uncomfortable, failing to remove awkward hairs and sometimes making the skin look worse with rashes or even in-growing hairs whilst shaving can leave razor nicks and cuts. Excessive facial hair can be a particular problem for some women and can appear for a multitude of reasons, including genetic background, hormonal conditions, or even certain drug treatments. Some men suffer from persistent shaving rash on the sensitive neck area and facial hair can also be a particular issue for our transgender clients.

Let’s face it, unwanted hair is an issue that almost all of us experience in some way, but we usually resort to shaving, waxing or other really inconvenient treatments that take up your time. These can be painful and actually quite expensive, as well as unsuccessful at achieving any actual permanent substantial hair reduction.

Here at MediZen, people come to us to solve their issues with unwanted hair for many reasons, including:

Whatever your age, sex, hair colour or area of the body requiring treatment - we have many years of experience in the use of a comprehensive range (you won't find a broader range in any clinic anywhere in the Midlands) of hair removal solutions for both men and women on any part of the body. These include Intense Pulse Light (IPL), painless Laser Hair Removal treatments and Electrolysis. At MediZen, you can achieve long lasting visible results - No more razors, waxing, or creams! No more stubble, shaving rashes or irritation! Let’s not even mention the excruciating and sometimes rather embarrassingly intimate monthly trips to the salon for waxing!

What areas can we remove hair from?

MediZen have experience treating any area of the body, so whether you just want a few hairs on the upper lip and chin removed, your pubic hair "tidied", or a more permanent solution than waxing or shaving for your legs, (or chest and back for men), we have the solution for you. We have invested in a range of treatment solutions to deal with even the finest hairs and most hair colours and all skin colours on any part of the body. We also have experience helping transgender clients with excessive hair management.

Areas we can treat include:

Transgender

We Are an NHS Approved Laser Hair Removal Clinic. We are one of only a few NHS recognised and approved laser hair removal specialist clinics in the Midlands for Transgender clients.
 
We also currently work together with a number of LGBT and Transgender support groups such as the Transcendent Alliance and Transfigurations who provide education, support and information for the transgender community.
 
We’ve heard first-hand how Transgender clients can be embarrassed, intimidated and frankly a little confused as to where to begin with hair removal and other treatments.The prospect of aesthetic treatment for transgender people can be daunting and this is why we want to let people know that at MediZen you can trust us to help you feel better about how you look.

Permanent Hair Reduction

One of the main reasons we are able to offer permanent hair reduction, and address such a wide range or treatment areas, hair colours or skin colour is our use of two Lasers widely considered to be the ‘gold standard’ in hair removal, alongside electrolysis for those that laser isn’t suitable for.
 

Duetto

As the Midlands’ premier cosmetic and laser hair removal clinic, we’re always reviewing the latest technology and advances in the areas that we specialise in, and as a result of such research we’ve invested in this state of the art hair removal laser.  The Duetto system uniquely combines the two most effective wavelengths (or colours of light) used to safely get the maximum hair reduction on all skin types. It allows our laser specialists to tune the laser to target fine hairs or thick hairs for optimal hair reduction. We have the first system of its kind available in any professional hair removal clinic in the Midlands.

A challenging area in laser hair removal has always been treating darker skins with very fine hair. Our Duetto laser uses a unique ‘mixed mode’ technology which offers an unrivalled level of flexibility by emitting the two different laser wavelengths independently, simultaneously or sequentially as well as giving safer and more effective results on tanned skins and hairs with very little melanin content. 

Soprano

Our Soprano Laser equipment treats a range of skin types, including darker skin, and gives you the most comfortable, high standard laser hair removal experience available. Soprano Laser treatment is ideal if you have dense amounts of prominent, unwanted hair. It works by delivering light energy into the skin. This energy targets the pigment contained in the hair shaft, follicle or root. This damages the cells that produce hair growth, and in turn prevent the hair from growing any further. Unlike most treatments, Soprano hair removal treatment is able to remove hair gently and quickly, offering you longer-lasting results than most alternative solutions.

Electrolysis

Electrolysis works by using heat energy to destroy the growth centre of the hairs, preventing them from growing any further. A tiny probe is inserted into the hair follicle, and then an electric current is delivered for a second or so, and the hair itself is removed with tweezers. Whilst you might have heard that Electrolysis is painful, modern methods and equipment mean that you will only experience, at worst, a slight and transient burning sensation.

Electrolysis can be used on many areas of body, including the eyebrows, nose, face, breasts, thighs or legs. We are also trained to treat the specific needs of transgender clients with electrolysis. However, because the treatment method is slow, and occasionally painful, we generally only recommend electrolysis for clients who are unsuitable for Laser or IPL Hair Removal.

Treat Excessive or Unwanted Hair at MediZen with the following recommended Treatments

Electrolysis for Hair Removal

Electrolysis is considered one of the most effective, long-lasting treatments for hair removal available. It is suitable for any skin type. Electrolysis involves cutting off the blood supply to the hair, preventing it from growing any further. After just a few treatments, you can expect smoother, hair-free skin that no longer requires the maintenance associated with shaving, waxing or plucking.

Laser and IPL Hair Removal

Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Removal is the one of the few clinically proven treatments available for the removal of undesirable facial and body hair. Unlike most treatments, Laser treatment is able to remove hair gently and quickly, offering you longer-lasting results than most alternative solutions. Our Soprano Laser equipment is designed to treat any skin type, including dark skin. The unique IN-Motion technology built into the Soprano laser gives you the most comfortable and effective laser hair removal experience available. With a sensation similar to a relaxing hot stone massage, painful waxing strips and constant shaving can be a thing of the past.
