      • If you are thinking of going on Hormone Replacement Therapy I would highly recommend Dr Sohere Roked. She is the best doctor I have ever met. She listens and understands her patients (I know because my 2 sisters also see her) Her approach is different to other doctors as she is a trained psychologist - She understands the balance between hormone therapy and mental health. She has honestly saved my life! - Meridith

        I have had a great experience with Omniya and Dr Roked. I started TRT at the ripe old age of 58 and I have never felt better. Who knew hormones could make such an impact on someones life! - Richard

      • I was having trouble with my acne for a while. I had been to a few clinics before Omniya but didn't get the results I wanted.

        Omniya was recommended and had great reviews. I saw Kerry Lou, one of their skin specialist. She explained that with the right treatment and a little patience I would see results. I brought a course of facials. Each one is slightly different depending on what is needed. I'm very happy with the improvement. - Shayma

        Great experience overall. The hormone doctor is phenomenal and has helped me a great deal. I wont go into too much detail but she has helped me in all aspects of my life. I have more energy I'm sleeping better. They have amazing skin treatments too. I recently tried PRP dermapen and my skin looks and feels great. - Danilo

        Omniya's Dr Tu Lin was recommended to me by a friend who has the most incredible skin and lips. Obviously, I had to try. She is such a caring doctor, and went out of her way. I've had lip fillers in the past with others, but now I've been to Omniya I doubt I need to go anywhere else. I love my new lips. Omniya Clinic is without fail the best place for lip fillers in London! Thank you! - Nora

      • I just wanted to say thank you to Omniya Clinic and Dr Roked for helping me. I had misconceptions about testosterone replacement therapy in the past, but now that I'm on TRT I feel back to my best! Long may it continue. Thank you to everyone at Omniya Clinic. MB - Matt

        Laser Hair Removal Treatment Information

        How does laser hair removal work?

        Laser hair removal works by using a laser light to target the hair follicle. This energy causes the hair follicle to become damaged, and then destroyed. This prevents the follicle from being able to produce further hairs. The hair follicle will absorb the intense beam of light that is delivered by the laser. Despite this, the tissue surrounding the area will remain unaffected.

        The term for this procedure is ‘selective photothermolysis.’ It is selective because only the hair is targeted and not the skin. It’s also important to make it clear that laser hair removal and electrolysis aren’t the same. The latter involves an electric current being directed onto each individual hair follicle, which is time consuming and painful. Laser hair removal is virtually pain-free and it can target a large number of hairs in one go.

        What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

        There are many benefits that are associated with laser hair removal treatment. Of course, the main advantage is that you will benefit from permanent hair removal. However, there are other points to consider too. This includes the following…

        • Say goodbye to ingrown hairs

        Do you suffer from ingrown hairs? A lot of people do, and this usually occurs because of shaving or waxing. They happen when the hair grows back into the skin. They can be sore and itchy, appearing like little red bumps on the skin. Sometimes they can end up becoming infected, which means treatment with tablets or antibiotic creams is needed. However, you won’t need to worry about this with laser hair removal, as the follicle is killed, which stops new hairs from growing, therefore, preventing ingrown hairs.

        • Save time

        Did you know that 88 per cent of women have spent more than four months of their life removing hair from their bodies? Compare this with the length of time your laser hair removal treatment takes, and you can see a big difference.

        • Save money

        Not only are you going to save a considerable amount of time, but a considerable amount of money too. A lot of people think that laser hair removal is costly. However, when you compare the cost of this treatment with shaving and waxing, you see a big difference. The average cost of shaving for a woman over her lifetime is £7,000, whereas the average cost of waxing is a monumental £17,000. Therefore, while laser hair removal treatment may cost a little bit more upfront, you are going to save huge amounts of money in the long-run.

        • Improved skin

        Not only does laser hair removal treatment get rid of unwanted hair, but it also improves your skin too. This is because waxing and shaving can irritate the skin. A common complaint of shaving is rashes and dry skin. Those who wax often experience red bumps and some people have had boils too. You don’t have to worry about any of this with laser hair removal treatment. After you’ve completed your treatments, your skin will be silky smooth.

         

        Is laser hair removal permanent?

        There are conflicting reports regarding whether laser hair removal is permanent. Will it last? Of course, it is impossible to guarantee that you are never going to get another hair again. However, after you have had between six and eight treatments, you can expect a considerable reduction in hair. You can always get a touch-up treatment if you notice any hair growth in the future.

        Is laser hair removal safe?

        Laser hair removal is known for being a safe treatment. There have not been any reported long-term health risks that are associated with the procedure. Nevertheless, in order to make sure that the treatment is as safe as it should be, it should always be carried out by a practitioner that is fully-qualified. This is why Omniya is the recommended choice. All of our practitioners have many years of experience and have received the required qualifications to carry out laser hair removal safely and effectively.

        Who is a good candidate for laser hair removal?

        You may have heard rumours that only certain people can have laser hair removal. However, the treatment is actually suitable for most people. It’s simply a case that some skin and hair types can be more difficult than others, which might mean more treatments are needed. However, this is something that one of our practitioners will explain to you during the consultation phase. This is why the consultation is so important. The practitioner will take a look at your skin and hair type, and they will make their recommendations regarding how many treatments they think you’re going to need.

        Generally speaking, there are three things that are going to impact the number of treatments required: your hair type, skin type, and the treatment area. Coarse and dark hair is the best hair type of laser hair removal. Nevertheless, advances in technology mean that lighter hairs can be treated. Dark hair and pale skin is the ideal combination. This is because the contrast between the dark hair and light skin enables the melanin to be targeted easily. If you have darker skin or light hair, you may need to have a few more treatments.

        Laser hair removal works extremely well when it comes to larger areas, such as the back, arms, legs, and underarms, facial hair (chin or upper lip) and bikini area for example. All of these areas have seen effective results from laser treatment. Laser hair removal is best for groupings of hair that need to be removed permanently, rather than the odd hair here and there.

        How many sessions of laser hair removal will you need?

        It’s important to understand that the laser light will only impact the hairs that are in the anagen phase, which means they are actively growing. At any one time, different hair follicles are going to be in different hair growth stages. These cycles of hair growth can differ between a few months and a year. This is why you will need to have a number of laser hair removal treatments to make certain that all hairs are caught while they are in the anagen phase.

        Treatment will be carried out every month on the face, and every six to seven weeks on the body. The number of treatments that are needed varies. However, you will typically need between six and eight for optimal results. This means that a full course of treatment on the body will typically take 11 months, and a full course of treatment will take around seven months on the face.

        In terms of how long the treatment will take, this is going to depend on the size of the area that is being treated. For example, if you are having your upper lip treated, this will only last around five minutes. However, if you are having your back or legs treated, this could last as long as an hour.

        Is laser hair removal painful?

        A lot of people worry that laser hair removal treatment is going to be painful. This is not the case. The skin may be a little bit tender and red for a couple of days after the treatment. Some people have described the sensation as being similar to mild sunburn. The process itself, though, is not painful, and at the most, you should only experience very mild discomfort afterward.

        What happens if I don’t shave before laser hair removal?

        It is advisable to shave before your laser hair removal treatment. This is because the laser needs to target the follicle of the hair, and so shaving assists with this. Not only is freshly shaved skin best in terms of the effectiveness of treatment, but the laser could also burn your skin if your hair is too long. This is why you don’t want hair above the skin, but you do want it in the follicle. Because of this, waxing is not recommended.

        Are there any side effects? Laser hair removal risks

        Most people do not experience any side effects as a consequence of laser hair removal. Nevertheless, all treatments do have some side effects, and so it is important to be aware of them. Most side effects are temporary and minor. Anyone who experiences lasting side effects should speak with their practitioner as soon as possible. Below are some of the side-effects that could arise:

        • A risk of skin infection

        As is the case with all forms of cosmetic hair removal, there is the risk of an infection if you use a laser to damage hair follicles. The impacted area needs to be treated while the wound is healing. If you notice any signs of infection, give us a call and we will help. If an infection does arise, do not apply over-the-counter antibiotic creams to large areas of the skin. Instead, one of our practitioners will be able to recommend the right course of treatment should an infection arise, although this is very rare.

        • Changes in skin colour

        Some people may notice small changes to the colour of their skin. It could get a little bit lighter or darker after their treatment. People with darker skin tones are more likely to experience lighter pigmentation changes, whereas those with lighter skin are more likely to experience darker pigmentation changes. The skin will return to normal over time.

        • Crusting

        Some people may also experience skin crusting in the area that has been impacted. This can be inconvenient but it is a minor issue. It can sometimes cause scabbing. However, by using a moisturiser and taking care of the treated area, you can prevent any lasting problems in this regard.

        • Irritation and redness

        Some people can experience a little bit of irritation and redness in the areas that have been impacted. The skin may feel tender or tingle. In some cases, it may appear to swell a little bit. The symptoms are typically short-lived. However, if they do persist, please get in touch with us as soon as possible.

         

        Laser Hair Removal FAQ’s

        After you have had laser hair removal, avoid doing any forms of physical exercise. You also need to avoid the sauna, steam room, and gym. In addition, you should make sure you don’t touch the area that has been treated either.

        For most people, the hair will start to fall out between five and 14 days after they have had the treatment.

        The aim is to target the hair follicle during the growth cycle, which is why it is a good idea to space out the treatments a little bit. Your practitioner will make recommendations regarding this.

        In most cases, between six and eight treatments are going to be enough. However, everyone is different, which is why you need to consult an expert for a timeline.

        For facial hair, treatment is usually carried out every four to six weeks.
