Our Laser Hair Removal Technology

We use Candela Gentlemax Pro medical grade laser – the gold standard in laser hair removal globally.

Suitable for all skin shades

Candela Gentlemax Pro is a dual system providing the gold standard laser for both lighter and darker skins.

Safety record

Gentle laser hair removal is the world’s leading medical hair removal treatment used by more than 10,000 doctors around the globe.


The thermolysis action of the laser damages the hair follicle preventing further hair growth, surrounding tissue remains unaffected and unharmed.

Laser Machine

Perfect for all face and body areas

The Candela system can be calibrated to target any treatment site on the face or body including smaller or more intricate treatment sites.


Each pulse lasts less than a second in addition to which the use of an air cooling system makes treatments even more comfortable.

Time Effective

Treatments are once per month at most and sessions are short.

The Candela System

Having considered many different systems, we found that Candela had the strongest clinical evidence to back up the results its systems deliver. This is not surprising given their long history in innovating in medical aesthetic technology.

The Candela GentleMax Pro is a precise, high-energy laser that we are proud to use at Mimi Laser Clinic. We were one of the first clinics in the Nottingham area to use this laser and so have a long-established working relationship with the company.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Do I need to do anything to prepare for my Consultation?

Be prepared to show the Therapist the area you want to have treatment in so that a test patch can be performed. It is preferable for the Therapist to see the hair in this area so if you have some growth in the area, please do not remove or shave the area.

How do I prepare for my laser hair removal treatment appointment?

Shave the area the day before the treatment.

Avoid wearing perfume or moisturisers/lotion in the treatment area for the appointment.

Avoid anything such as chemical peels or skin resurfacing treatments for 6 weeks before the treatment.

Avoid tanning or sun exposure for 4 weeks before the treatment.

Do not wax/thread/epilate the hairs for 4 weeks before your treatment.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by transmitting light energy which is absorbed by pigment in hair follicles and through this channel is able to denature the cells that are responsible for hair growth. The hair needs to be at the right stage of the hair growth cycle when treatment occurs for this to happen, this is why multiple treatments are needed.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal is a perfectly safe form of treatment. Lasers have been used in medical applications for decades. Laser hair removal simply targets the melanin in the hair and leaves the surrounding skin unharmed.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Laser hair removal treatment is often described as similar to the sensation of an elastic band flicking against the skin. The more treatments you have, the less you feel the treatment as there are fewer follicles to treat each time.

Can laser hair removal be used on any skin type?

The lasers that we use at our clinic are safe for all skin types. We treat white, caucasian, light skin types and black, dark, asian, middle eastern, olive skin types. Some lasers are not safe to use on darker skin types, however, the Candela Gentlemax Pro system that we use is safe for all skin types.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

The number of treatments of laser hair removal required depends on your skin and hair type and varies from person to person. An absolute minimum of 6 treatments is required for an initial course of laser hair removal.

However, through our experience we have found that 8-12 treatments are more likely to reach the desired outcome with maintenance treatments every 2-3 months for permanent hair reduction.

How long do I need to wait between laser hair removal sessions?

Laser hair removal treatments in your initial course of treatments are typically carried out every 4-6 weeks depending on the area being treated and where you are in your treatment journey.

Will laser hair removal give me permanent hair removal?

There is actually no such thing as “permanent hair removal”. Laser hair removal can give you a significant permanent reduction – up to 90% reduction. However, nothing can leave you permanently with absolutely no hair in your desired treatment areas!

Can men have laser hair removal treatments?

Yes! A significant portion of our clients are men and laser hair removal for men is a highly effective treatment. Some of our most popular laser hair removal treatments for men are back, chest, stomach and cheekbones (above the beard).

Can laser hair removal help with ingrown hairs?

Yes! Ingrown hairs are caused by hairs that are essentially not growing back straight out of the skin but have re-entered the skin or are curling under the surface of the skin. Laser hair removal has two effects on this. First, it will encourage the hair to grow straight, reducing the chance that it will become trapped beneath the surface and become an ingrown hair. Second, laser hair removal treatment can permanently eradicate the hairs that are successfully treated and these then cannot become ingrown.
