Myths about laser hair removal

It’s totally OK to have body hair, but if you do decide to remove it… Laser hair removal is a popular procedure that women and men can book at Strip. Yet, there are still big misconceptions tied to the treatment.

MYTH: Laser hair removal has not been proven safe.

FACT: Laser hair removal safety depends on the type of laser system being used. The FDA has approved certain laser hair removal systems, so you’ll want to be sure that you’re going to a board-certified dermatologist using one of the FDA-accredited laser systems.

MYTH: All laser technicians and their techniques are the same.

FACT: Experienced and skilled laser technicians can make all the difference. Length of treatment, discomfort during the procedure, and ideal results can be affected by the level of expertise and experience of your practitioner.

MYTH: You must be close-shaven before getting laser hair removal. Most of clients prefer to shave the areas where they will get laser treatment, it isn’t uncommon for the aesthetician to shave an area such as the bikini line.

FACT: It takes more than one laser hair removal session to see a significant reduction in hair growth. Laser hair removal works as a continuous process of removing the hair follicle of the given area over a specific amount of time. The professional notes that you should start to see results within two weeks of your first treatment. As the hair grows back slower, it will be very patchy. It is recommended for clients to space their sessions four to six weeks apart, to see the best results. Each session reduces hair growth by 10 to 15 percent.

  • I have been going to Strip Wax for years, and it never disappoints. They always do an excellent job, and make the experience as pain free as waxing allows. Staff are always really helpful, the rooms are gorgeous and they use great products. Would highly recommend.

  • Got a Brazilian here and it’s the most painless waxing experience I’ve ever had. Also very good wax job, and she really made me feel relaxed and comfortable too… which is not easy when you’re half naked getting waxed! Will def go back.

  • I have been looking for a hair removal salon since leaving NYC. A lot of beauty salons use mediocre wax, however at Strip they use the proper black wax which is the best and most comfortable way to remove hair it is also super quick. Staff could not have been more friendly helpful and professional. I will definitely be returning to Strip!

  • As it was my first waxing I was quite nervous. There was no need to be. The staff were friendly and professional. Eva put me at ease by explaining everything. She did an amazing treatment, virtually pain free. Will definitely be back. Thank you Eva and all the staff .

  • Best waxing experience I’ve ever had! Martina was wonderful and the products they use are amazing and make a really comfortable experience. I’m a customer for life.

  • My fourth wax at Strip and as always a positive experience! All the ladies are so lovely, professional and knowledgeable, doing whatever they can to ensure you get the best results and have the best experience – I could not recommend Strip enough! Can’t wait to go back again!

  • This place is awesome. Every time I’ve come they have offered top notch service. They make me super comfortable, they are beyond friendly, and the wax is done to perfection. All of the Strip locations are great but I think the City location is the best for customer service and friendliness. Highly recommend everyone go here for!!

  • Honestly the best intimate waxing in London. Quick and as pain-free as it’s gonna get. My favourite therapist is Luciana – she’s such a pro and makes the whole experience easy and stress-free.

  • Have been coming here for over 5 years when I had my first ever Hollywood – I was scared and nervous! It is one of the best salons around – great products, calming atmosphere and fabulous staff. Nicole has made my laser experience so much fun and has always listened to any need I’ve had, she is precise, considerate and a joy to be around! The manager Hannah is also the best and is very thoughtful and kind. Would definitely recommend to any and all friends/family.
