For those looking for laser hair removal in Glasgow, here at Ministry of Laser , we use the Cynosure Elite Plus, one of the best laser hair removal lasers on the market. The industry standard, the Elite Plus allows us to perform effective, aesthetic laser treatment and with its constant air-cooling throughout the treatments, it enhances our patients’ comfort and satisfaction.
The laser is built on two clinically proven wavelengths—the 755-nm Alexandrite which has high melanin absorption characteristics and proven long-term results for pigmented lesion removal and hair reduction. It also permanently reduces hair by an average of 79% after just three treatments.
The 1064-nm Nd:YAG wavelength is the safest wavelength for permanent hair reduction on tanned and darker skin types and is ideal for treating leg and facial veins.
The laser’s two wavelengths allow us to switch between them during a single procedure, therefore we can customise treatments for you and select the most appropriate laser for any given hair or skin type.
In addition, the laser’s standard large 18 mm spot size gives a 44% additional treatment area per pulse compared to standard 15 mm spot sizes. There are also larger spot size options too – 20, 22, and 24mm, which allow for faster treatments.
Our Senior Practitioner, Liz, has been performing laser hair removal treatments for over 10 years now, five of those working in an NHS nurse-led laser clinic. And, she has been using the Cynosure Elite Plus laser for over eight years.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (commonly known as PCOS) is a very common hormone disorder that affects how a woman’s ovaries function. Its symptoms can vary for each individual but some of the most common include excess facial and body hair growth, weight gain, acne and oily skin.
The excess hair growth for women with PCOS is caused by the higher levels of male hormones in their body, otherwise known as androgens. In women, androgens are produced in the ovaries, fat cells and adrenal glands, with its principal ones being testosterone and androstenedione. For a woman, androgens start off puberty, inciting hair growth in the underarm and pubic areas, although one of its key purposes is to be converted into the female hormone, oestrogen.
At Ministry of Laser, we have a sympathetic understanding of the stress that can be suffered by women who have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Excess hair can appear on their face, buttock, chest, back and other inappropriate places. As it impacts one in five women in the UK, it’s not an uncommon condition and a few of our regular clients who make appointments for laser hair removal in Glasgow, suffer from PCOS.
Our Senior Practitioner, Liz, has over ten years’ experience in laser hair removal treatments, five of those with the NHS, where she helped set up a nurse-led laser clinic offering laser hair removal services.
We take great pride and care in helping women with this condition and as you would expect, all consultations and treatments are completely confidential.
If you would like a free, personal consultation with Liz, you can call us now on 0141 433 7370, email us at email@example.com or fill out our online contact form on our Ministry of Laser site.

No you do not have to buy a package, you can pay per session. If you do decide to buy a package it does work out more cost effective.
Many describe the sensation of the laser pulses like a tiny elastic band snapping against the skin. It is more than tolerable.
Please shave one day prior to your treatment and ensure the skin is free from product, make-up and fake tan. Do not wax, epilate, or remove hair from the root using any other hair removal method for at least four weeks prior to your first session or throughout the course.

While intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments have become popular in beauty salons, it’s much less effective than laser hair removal and tends to offer limited use on fairer skin. IPL can also be quite uncomfortable. Sometimes referred to as IPL Laser Treatment, this is misleading, as the beam does not involve a laser.
There are different wavelengths for laser hair removal. For example, people with darker skin tones respond better to a different wavelength than those with lighter skin.
The Cynosure Elite Plus Laser offers two optimal wavelengths in one system. This allows us to switch between wavelengths during a single procedure and select the most appropriate laser for any given hair or skin type.
