At the beginning of summer 2019, we suggested to you five reasons why we think you should be considering laser hair removal to prepare you for the holiday season. As we move into the autumn month of September in advance of the cold winter months ahead, this is actually one of the best times to start a session of laser hair removal treatments.



Ministry Of Laser

Laser hair removal, any time of the year

At Ministry of Laser in Glasgow, laser hair removal is what we do. It’s our speciality. Our treatments are affordable and we also offer a very appealing pay as you go option. For the best success though, we recommend at least eight scheduled appointments, each one taking place every four weeks for the face and every six weeks for the body. That means if you start your sessions before the end of the year, by the time spring or summer arrives next year, you will be silky smooth and more confident in your own body!

Laser hair removal keeps you in control and allows you to relax and be prepared for the unexpected. With the UK clocks set to go back at 2am on 27 October, many of us love the darker nights and getting away for the weekend in autumn and winter, whether up north into the Scottish Highlands and Islands or overseas for some winter sun. Thankfully, not having to worry about unwanted hair allows you to relax and really enjoy your break, wherever you may go.

Our laser hair removal treatment plans work by targeting the hair follicle with our medical-grade Cynosure Elite Plus laser, which gradually destroys the hair follicle and prevents regrowth. This leaves you with silky, smooth skin, all year round. With a guaranteed hair reduction of up to 90%, our treatments give you the confidence to live your life how you want to live it.

Book your laser hair removal sessions in Glasgow at Ministry of Laser now. For a free consultation with our specialist, Liz Rodgers, call us on 0141 433 7370 or email us at hello@ministryoflaser.com.

A Shining Light…

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.

Contact us for your free consultation with Liz and find out the best laser hair removal treatment for you. Call us now on 0141 433 7370, email us at hello@ministryoflaser.com or fill out our online contact form on our Ministry of Laser site.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Ministry of Laser | Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

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 hello@ministryoflaser.com or fill out our online contact form on our Ministry of Laser site.

Summertime, and the living is easy…

Ministry of Laser | Five reasons for laser hair removal

Ministry of Laser | Five reasons for laser hair removal

With the clocks recently going forward for British Summer Time (BST), many people naturally start to think about their summer holidays and the warmer days and nights to come. Whether you’re aiming for the ultimate beach body, or you’re just looking forward to wearing skirts and tops, or shorts and t-shirts, for many people, laser hair removal becomes a priority for the months ahead.

At Ministry of Laser in Glasgow, we specialise in laser hair removal treatment that is tailored to each individual. We’re just as excited as you that’s it’s nearly summer and that’s why we’ve put together five great reasons why you should be starting your own session of laser hair removal to get you silky smooth for the sunnier days to come…

1. Love your skin
At Ministry of Laser we encourage you to take the first step to having flawless, silky smooth skin. An effective laser hair removal treatment plan will give you a much smoother skin than any other hair removal routines and by removing the hair, it eliminates any skin irritations caused by waxing or shaving. Oh, and did we say how smooth your skin will be afterwards!

2. Say goodbye to razors
And unwanted hair! At Ministry of Laser we use the Cynosure Elite Plus Laser which offers two optimum wavelengths for hair removal. Our Senior Practitioner has over 10 years’ experience, five years of those with the NHS. After your free consultation to discuss the best course of treatment, you can look forward to guaranteed hair reduction of up to 90%. Bye bye razors.

3. Invest in a new you
Although laser hair removal may seem costly at first, it’s actually a pretty good investment. Laser hair removal sessions diminish the hair permanently, therefore reducing the amount of money you need to spend on waxing and razors. When you consider how much you save here against a lifetime of purchasing the necessary hair removal supplies and the time and effort involved, participating in laser hair removal makes wonderful sense.

4. Make your life easier
Always be ready for the unexpected! You never know what delightful surprises are just around the corner, so be prepared for them by investing in laser hair removal. An unexpected swim, a surprise acquaintance or even an impulse weekend away with close friends or your partner, the convenience of not having to worry about unwanted hair lets you focus on those other things that really matter.

5. Rebuild your confidence
Noticeable unwanted hair or even the discomfort of ingrown hairs really can affect many people’s confidence. Whether that’s facial hair, back hair or even just inner thigh hair, wherever the site, if you’re not comfortable with it, it can impact how you feel and act on a daily basis. Laser hair removal reduces this unwanted hair and gives you the confidence to live your life how you want to live it. It’s your body. Own it.

Laser Hair Removal: FAQs

At Ministry of Laser, we want to ensure you are as informed as possible before booking your consultation or undertaking treatment. Below you will find some of the most common questions we get asked. Just click on any question to reveal its answer.

Results are unique to each individual. However, 6-8 sessions are recommended with 4-6 week intervals.

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.

We use the world leading Cynosure Elite Plus Laser. This uses the most advanced technology available. Our system has undergone independent clinical trials and is found in clinics across the world.

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.
