Look Sleek Forever with Laser Hair Removal in Manchester
If you’re one of those people who’s tried everything on the market - from waxing strips to removal cream, razors to epilators - and still nothing suits, laser hair removal is likely the best solution. Not only does it banish pesky hairs in the first place but it reduces their capacity to grow back, meaning future stubble will be much finer and slower to show. For those with dark coarse growth, or indeed anyone who’s had enough of the usual methods, laser hair removal is particularly useful and becoming extremely popular as a consequence. As with many procedures, it’s best to see an expert. All you need is our guide to Manchester’s finest salons offering laser hair removal.
Brazilian Waxing Company
While this sounds like a nationwide brand, so far the Brazilian Waxing Company is exclusive to Manchester. After ten years of de-fuzzing the north, the savvy outpost is still going strong, primarily because its persuasive marketing isn’t the usual poetic license; it actually fronts an excellent service. Even Brazilians are impressed. The two main services offered are waxing and laser treatments, the latter using Gentlemax Pro which is said to suit a wider range of skin tones than other commercial lasers. Prices are reasonable too.

Smooth and Simple
This versatile branch offers a wide variety of treatments, spanning everything from botox to cosmetic surgery. Hair removal here is via intense pulsed light (IPL), with a large applicator head for shorter treatments. IPL is often compared diode laser treatments but studies have shown little statistical difference – plus it can prove a cheaper option. Staff are honest and knowledgeable, enabling customers to make the best possible decision via webinars, consultations and even free demo days. Tasteful decor makes the experience relaxing rather than stressful, and there’s always plenty of incentives to join the smooth revolution.

Centros Unico is almost hidden amid a cluster of electronics, underwear and jewellery chains on the upper floor of Manchester’s city centre’s world-class Arndale Centre. This branch is one of the company’s 140 medical aesthetics centres worldwide. Particularly within franchises, quality can often be compromised, but happily that’s not the case here. The laser pricing structure is simple: it’s a flat fee. This means that large areas are typically better value at Centros Unico that smaller ones. The LightSheer diode system which is used here is recommended by dermatologists and boasts a unique cooling hand piece for added comfort.

As the name of this south Manchester beauty treatment centre suggests, the emphasis is on laser treatments for both hair and skin. The salon uses a special laser which employs two different wavelengths – the result is simply smooth, hair free skin, with little hassle and conducted after rigorous safety testing. If that’s not convincing enough, it may be useful to know the company is both F.D.A and Lynton approved. It’s not the cheapest option but consultations are free and discounts are offered when treating multiple areas.

So there you go, five trusted salons, each with their own unique selling points. As for which to choose, that’s down to the reader.
