Laser Hair Removal > How Sessions Work

Your first consultation

Your first consultation at Epilium is really important as it helps define the right treatment programme for you. Naturally the consultation is free and without any obligation to proceed. During the consultation, the Epilium consultant will discuss the pros and cons of the treatment and the precautions that need to be taken. You will also learn more about the recommended process.

At Epilium centre, all our practitioners and consultants are at your disposal. During this first session, you will have a clinical examination to determine your skin type, your history, any allergies you may have and your last exposure to the sun. The next stage is for the consultant to analyse your hair and to verify through a questionnaire that there are no medical reasons that would inhibit hair removal using laser.

Following discussion with you, the consultant will propose a realistic treatment programme having identified your skin type, the most suitable laser to use and the number of sessions required. The number of sessions varies from patient-to-patient and the area to be treated. In support of this, a laser hair removal test will be conducted on the area(s) you wish to be treated and the Epilium consultant will answer any questions you may have about future sessions. You will then be given an estimate of costs for the laser programme, an information sheet and a consent form requiring your signature. There is no cause for concern as you will have plenty of time to think about the various options available to you.

Once you have made your decision you can start your first laser session which will be conducted under the supervision of an Epilium consultant. You can book your appointment using our online booking form or by phone.
