Let’s face it, excess body and facial hair can be unsightly and embarrassing. Shaving, waxing, plucking and depilatory creams are inconvenient, messy and only temporary. Laser hair removal is faster and safer than any other permanent hair reduction method and can treat large areas with each session.
At Metro Clinic, Laser Hair Removal is our specialty. We only use medical grade lasers, not inferior IPL or diode systems like many other clinics in Glasgow. The Polaris NdYag Laser can be safely and successfully used for the removal of hair on all skin types, Fitzpatrick scale I-VI.
One of the many advantages of using Laser light at 1064nm is that melanin absorption is very low. As a result the risk of skin pigmentation damage, either hyper or hypo, is very low, making long pulsed Nd:Yag lasers the only choice for hair removal on skin types III-VI.
The Polaris long pulsed Nd:Yag can also be used for the treatment of red and blue, broken capillaries on both the leg and the face.

How it works At Metro Laser Clinic: we use the latest laser technology. Unlike Intense Pulse Light (IPL), the laser beam is made of precisely controlled pulses of single colour light 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 - especially important for clients with Asian or African skintones.
Hair is always in a different growth cycle. We specify the duration of time between sessions between 3-8 weeks depending on the body area. This ensures your hair follicles are in the optimal stage for us to treat them. This typically means a treatment plan duration between 6-9 months with annual top up's. Essentially where you see the hair root at it's largest in the diagram that's the most effective time to eliminate it. Hair in the intermediate stages often grows slower and weaker during the elimination cycle.
