Laser Hair Removal Dublin

When choosing to get laser hair removal in a laser and skin clinic in Dublin, it’s important to pick a certified specialist, this means that your laser operators  will leave you with the feeling of perfectly smooth skin. Laser hair removal is a wise investment. Your provider must be skilled in using the devices and also use the best devices for laser hair removal. Otherwise, you’ll end up wasting time, effort and money. If you’re in Dublin, you’re lucky. Havana Skin Clinic is located in Dublin, Caroline and all the laser operators in Havana are certified laser hair removal specialists. However, if you live too far away from our clinic, here’s how you can find the right laser hair removal clinic near you.

Do your research


Researching is necessary to assure you’ll fall in the right hands. Typically, credible providers are those who focus on laser treatments. They offer less procedures to perfect their craft on laser hair removal. Though it's not necessary, it is best to find a Lumenis certified practitioner, similar to Havana Skin Clinic. Also, top-notch laser hair removal providers are equipped with the latest medical grade lasers for the treatment.  At Havana Skin Clinic we use the Lumenis LightSheer DUET2 . It makes sense to invest in the best technology, because you will need less treatments, you will get better results with less sessions of laser hair removal and, of course, you will feel the amazing feeling of perfectly smooth hairfree skin.  You can ask your prospective skin and laser clinic about what's mentioned above to ascertain that they can provide similar results.

Who you must not choose

Laser Hair Removal Dublin

Laser hair practitioners who offer more services that do not belong in the aesthetic industry may be less credible. You may not want to consider trying laser hair removal in Dublin or anywhere from beauticians who are not fully trained in the procedure. If the office or clinic is offering services like manicure, pedicure, massage, dental procedures, or is a general beauty clinic we suggest you keep researching. Unless they have acquired special training for laser hair removal, you can make a decision on that. You must also be aware of the devices they use for laser hair removal. Outdated, or old technologies for this treatment may be more painful, and may require more sessions. At Havana Skin Clinic, laser hair removal specialists only use the latest and most advanced skin devices. With such technologies, each treatment will be comfortable, effective, and virtually painless.

Laser hair removal FAQs

What are the facts about laser hair removal (laser hair removal faqs)?

Body Hair can be stubborn. Many products claim to be the most effective hair remover, but often fail to live up to expectations. But now, laser hair removal is very quick and easy and your skin will be left smooth and clean. It only takes from 5 minutes for lip to 20 minutes for full back. Our laser leg hair treatments are hygienic, quick and after your course of treatment, you will be virtually hair free! Plus, ingrown hairs will disappear and not return.

How to get rid of unwanted hair?

For the best hair removal results, you will need between 6-8 sessions using medical grade lasers, this will depend on hair type and skin type. Treatments are performed between 5 to 12 weeks until the follicle becomes sterile. Following the successful completion of your treatments, you may need one or two treatments per year to maintain the results.

What results can I expect after laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal treatments mean permanent hair reduction. Occasionally, some clients have a few hairs left following the completion of the treatment course of 6 treatments, but they are almost invisible. Laser hair removal works using Photothermolysis, or converting light energy into heat, which harms the hair follicle and makes laser the best of all the hair removers available today.  Some people may have to complete more than 6 sessions of laser hair removal to achieve permanent hairfree skin.

Results can be a godsend, particularly in some areas, like bikini line and underarms, where clients report that being able to change in public without worrying about hair is really empowering.  Talk directly to your therapist or book an appointment, below to find out about results you can get in your specific situation.

How much does laser hair removal cost?

The best way to know how much your specific laser hair removal price will be, is to ask your therapist, in one of our free laser hair removal consultations.  They will go through your specific requirements and get your the best price on removing your unwanted hair.  If you don't have time for a consultation, there is a laser hair prices page on the website with more information. 

What areas can I get laser hair removal treatments on?

Laser hair removal can be used on almost all areas on the face or body on both men and women.

Specifically you can get it on

  • Face - lip chin
  • Arms
  • Legs (upper legs, lower legs)
  • Bikini - basic bikini (bikini line)standard bikini, hollywood bikini, brazilian bikini
  • Chest and back are most popular for male clients
Will laser hair removal hurt?

Laser hair removal is nothing compared to a bikini wax. The medical grade lasers we use at Havana are virtually pain-free. After your hair removal treatment you may have a slight redness on the area treated which will reduce and then disappear in less than two hours.

How do I take care of my skin after my hair removal treatment?

It is important not to wax or pluck 4 weeks before and for the duration of your laser treatment. However, you can use depilatory creams or have a shave. But, one of the many benefits of laser, over a beauty treatment like waxing, is that you do not have to wait until the hair grows back before you get your next laser treatment!

Laser Hair Removal Dublin, solving the ingrown hair problem

The three main causes for ingrown hairs

  1. Shaving
  2. Waxing
  3. and plucking hairs

My name is Caroline Hooper, Certified Laser Specialist with 3 clinics in Dublin, and I would like to help you as a customer to become a fully informed consumer about the aesthetic industry, and to tell you the truth about the aesthetic industry, before you spend any of your time and money.

So when you pluck or waxing, you're pulling the hair out the root, that does make the hair grow slower but it can cause the hair to grow back much thicker and in some cases it can curl. What that means is that it's going to grow under the skin as opposed to out of the skin.

When you shave your hair, you're continuously irritating the skin, so you're causing damage to the skin, the skin will try to repair itself and that can cause a blockage on the surface of the skin not allowing the hair to grow up and out of the surface when it's growing the next time after you have damaged the hair.

Ingrown hair (also known as folliculitis) is very common in men especially for the beard area. A lot of times folliculitis is caused by jacuzzis and saunas and the continuous shaving of the area and sweating can cause the damage to the hair follicle. Having a course of laser hair removal, in a lot of cases, can solve this problem.  Even after just one treatment, there's an exceptional reduction in ingrown hair, once those ingrown hair have been caught in an active stage of growth. It really is reliant on your hair cycles, to deal with the ingrown hair, but some people who suffer excessively with ingrown hairs can see a big change, even from the first treatment. In some cases it can not take effect until the end of the course.

It really depends on where and when the ingrown hairs are in an active stage of growth, but  after a course of six hair removal treatments have been performed, it is going to be effective in removing the ingrown hairs permanently.

Laser Hair Removal Story by Mei Ling Tong | Fast Hair Growth

Laser hair removal is for anyone who is bothered about the hair on different parts of their body. It suits any type of skin and ethnicity. Here, we will share the story of Mei Ling Tong, a beauty and fashion blogger based in Ireland, but grew up in Hong Kong. She had laser hair treatments for her lower legs, upper legs and underarms. Know how the treatment responded to her by reading below.

About Mei Ling Tong

Laser Hair Removal Story by Mei Ling Tong | Fast Hair Growth

Mei Ling Tong, a fashion and beauty blogger, she grew up in Hong Kong, where spent her childhood, and then moved to Ireland. It was a huge shift for her when she moved to Ireland because according to her, back in her hometown, children had no “pressure” about their bodies. Mei, being the only kid in her classroom who’s half Chinese, experienced a major culture shock growing up. Over the years, she was able to adapt the awareness about her body, including her body hairs.

Why did she consider laser hair removal?

According to Mei, shaving was always a pain for her. Due to her genes, her hair grows faster than a normal person. It also means she does shaving much more often than girls in her age. For Mei, shaving takes too much time, and it’s super uncomfortable. She started shaving her legs when she was a young teen with all the social pressure surrounding her, and ended up regretting what she did. Her initial baby hair on the legs grew darker, and courser, which caused her to constantly shave from that point. Because Mei has hair that grows faster than others, she usually suffers from extreme itchiness when the hair starts growing back after shaving. All these factors, and because she heard about the effectiveness of laser hair removal led her to consider the treatment.

Mei’s Laser Hair Removal Review

Mei Ling Tong had her underarms and legs treated with laser hair removal. Because her legs have hair that grows fast after shaving, she wanted to treat this area first. According to Mei, the treatment for her legs didn’t feel painful at all. The sensation of the laser was like a warm pinch with a pain level of 2 out 5, where 5 is the most painful. For her underarm, Mei said the treatment didn’t hurt as well. She rated the pain 3 out of 5, 5 being the most painful. The treatment was like a bit of discomfort, and after that it’s done, she said. Mei was amazed with how fast the treatment can be done both for legs and underarm. She said, she was really happy with her laser hair removal, and she’s looking forward to her treatments for her legs and underarms in the future.
