Body hair is totally natural, but some of us feel that we look our best without it. This is especially true for those who may grow hair excessively or in unsightly areas. If you’ve dabbled in laser hair removal in London, you’ll know that whether you choose to shave, wax, or use depilatory creams, it can be a costly or time consuming process.
Patient Before and After Images
What does the treatment do?
Laser hair removal in London offers a more long-term solution to your body hair woes. A non-invasive way to permanently reduce unwanted hair, laser hair removal offers unparalleled results when compared to other hair removal methods. Not only does laser hair removal prevent hair regrowth in the treatment area, but also keeps your skin smooth and healthy, particularly for those who suffer with ingrown hair or other skin irritation caused by shaving or waxing.
Laser hair removal works by emitting energy in the form of light to heat up the hair follicle. The heat travels down the hair before destroying the root, cutting off the blood supply that is essential for healthy hair growth.
At Dermasurge, all of our laser hair removal procedures are performed by our highly skilled team, led by Dr Hiba Injibar. As a well qualified and reputable international consultant dermatologist, Dr Hiba has trained her team to accurately target the hair follicles without causing damage to the surrounding structures.

“I cannot recommend Dr. Hiba and her staff highly enough. This was my first cosmetic procedure and from the moment I walked into the office I knew I was in good hands. Both Dr. Hiba and her assistant Liza, listened, reviewed my concerns and questions with complete attention and detail. I was extremely nervous and they both took the time to ensure that I was comfortable. After the procedure, I received daily communication in regards to my progress. No questions and I had many, were too small. They made sure that I felt comfortable at each stage of the process. The procedure itself was a tremendous success and both fine lines and sun spots were removed. I am tremendously pleased and will use Dr. Hiba again. I highly recommend her.”
