How many hours do you spend shaving…IN A LIFETIME?

Let’s talk about body hair. There is the good, there is the bad and there is the downright annoying. In the Summertime we tend to be more conscious of unwanted body hair. Wouldn’t it be nice to have less of it next year?

Autumn is the perfect time to start thinking about laser hair removal.

At Laserase: we are one of the most experienced clinics in Belfast for laser hair removal – the first laser clinic in Belfast with over 20 years of experience!

How can laser hair removal impact your life?


For starters, let’s think about how much time is spent shaving. A recent study has suggested that a woman will spend approximately 72 days of her life simply shaving her legs. 72 days. That’s 1,728 hours! What would you do with that extra time? Just imagine… no longer having to think about shaving every day. Imagine not having to deal with the aggravation of stubble and razor burn. Imagine an extra half hour in bed some mornings! We know your time is valuable to you, which is why we are so excited about this treatment option.


At Laserase, we use the IPL Quantum by Lumenis – a state of the art machine which gives fantastic results. Treatment times vary depending on hair density and the size of the treatment area. From only a few minutes per session for small areas to approximately 45 minutes per session for larger areas, discomfort is bearable and the results can be impressive. Over the course of several treatments, you will notice a visible reduction in the amount of hair in the treated area. As the laser targets hairs in the active growth cycle (and not all hair in the treated area will be in the growth cycle at the same time) multiple sessions (usually a minimum of six to ten) are required.

The laser targets pigment, therefore, it is important for sessions to take place during the winter months when your skin is not tanned. The more of a pigment contrast there is between your skin and your hair, the more significant the results will be (i.e. pale skin and dark hair will give the best results).

Ditch that razor – try laser!
