Laser and IPL Hair Removal Overview

Laser IPL Hair Removal Sutton Coldfield
Reduce unwanted and excess hair on your face and body with Pain-Free Laser or IPL Hair Removal – Limit the amount of time you spend plucking, shaving and waxing.

As lasers and Intense Pulsed light have become a more common and established treatment for unwanted hair, since their introduction in the late 1990s, more and more women (and men) at some time or another have considered this as an option for the more permanent management of unwanted hair.

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.

Excess hair can be embarrassing and inconvenient for both women and men, making you feel self-confident and affecting your daily activities like going to public places such as gyms or swimming pools where the skin is usually on show. It could even stop you from being able to wear your favourite clothes.

Plus it can be such a pain to deal with - endless plucking and shaving, and still, the problem keeps on coming back.

Looking at all these considerations it’s easy to see why thousands of local Birmingham men and women opt for more permanent solutions that can also save you money! If you don't believe us read our article on Why Laser Hair Removal is Cheaper than Waxing or Shaving - the Evidence!

We are an NHS Approved Laser Hair 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.
I have found the time I have spent at MediZen very worthwhile. After years of shaving, waxing and using creams to remove unwanted hair, it has been a relief to go on holiday without having to worry about what to wear, and how I look. Medizen has been by far the best clinic I have attended. They are professional, approachable and offer good service.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Removal is 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.

One of the main reasons we are able to offer permanent hair reduction, and address such a wide range of treatment areas, hair colours or skin colour is due to our investment in the best technologies available. We have two Lasers widely considered to be the ‘gold standard’ in hair removal.


Our 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 offering 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. 


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.

People come to us to solve their issues with unwanted hair for many reasons, including:

Laser treatment can be even be used on sensitive areas of the skin, such as the face, alongside these other areas:

Whilst a full course of sessions will be needed for overall hair removal and significant reduction of growth, it won’t be long before you’ll notice the difference made by just one treatment.

Laser Hair Removal Side Effects

Whilst not painful, you might feel a stinging sensation, similar to an elastic band being flicked against the skin (if IPL instead of laser hair removal using either our Soprano or Duetto is recommended). Your skin might feel slightly sore after the treatment, but this will disappear within a day or two, gradually leaving behind smoother skin. 

Our laser specialists have passed a specific BTEC qualification in order for them to safely and effectively use lasers and IPL systems for hair removal. That means you can be sure of safer and more effective results for unwanted hair, as well as the other Laser and IPL treatments we offer, such as Laser Thread vein treatment and skin tightening.

Laser Hair Removal Cost

Costs for our Laser Hair Removal treatments can be found on our price page.

Many people are under the impression that a course of laser hair removal is the expensive option and let their dreams of a silky soft, hair-free future slip away, turning again to the trusty (but not very pleasant) disposable razor daily shaving routine! When in actual fact, Laser Hair Removal can be CHEAPER than Shaving or Waxing – Read our blog here to see the evidence.

We’re here to help

Having treated hundreds of men and women for hair removal, I know that making the first step can be that of a difficult one.

Treating both men, women, young and old I take a sensitive approach to anyone who may be feeling nervous or embarrassed about hair removal. You really don’t have to feel embarrassed coming in, as excessive hair is most likely something that affects most of us ladies. It is just a case of some us have it more noticeable and some don’t!

Being a practitioner can be both rewarding for both my clients and myself.

Seeing confidence grow makes me happy knowing I have helped another person feel more positive and less self-conscience about themselves.

Time and time again I hear ladies and men say they wanted to enquire about laser hair removal for so long but didn’t have the confidence to come in. Not knowing how they would be received when coming into a clinic for the first time seemed nerve racking.

So please whatever your questions, thoughts or worries may be…you are more than welcome here with us. Why not try for yourself, take that plunge and see how you may well possibly be on the way to becoming hair free too!
