The truth: Beauty Editor Stephanie says, ‘Us girls spend more than £500 on hair removal every year so if you’re blowing that kinda cash, you want it to be long-lasting! Nothing works as efficiently to permanently remove hair than laser. Unlike some treatments, the Harley Medical Group’s laser works on any skin tone and most hair colours. I’ve been for two sessions so far and already don’t have to shave as often. The hair that’s grown back is thinner and fairer. As for the treatment itself, it’s not painful per se, more uncomfortable – like a hot rubber band flicking the skin. It’s best to book in for six sessions, spaced six to eight weeks apart to get up to a 90 per cent reduction. And because you need to keep your skin out of the sun through the treatment period, it’s ideal to start now in time for next summer.’
