Your Questions Answered
What can I expect to pay?+-
Prices vary depending on the number of areas you’d like to have treated.
Who will I meet at my initial consultation?+-
You will meet with one of our Registered General Nurses at your free consultation who will assess your suitability and make a recommendation as to the best course of action for you and how you can achieve your desired results.
Who will carry out my treatment+-
Only a Registered General Nurse with extensive experience will carry out your treatment.
What areas can I treat?+-
Face and body
How does it work?+-
The medical-grade laser is attracted to the pigment (melanin) in the hair. It effectively targets and destroys the hair follicle.
Does it hurt?+-
As with other laser treatments the sensation is often described as a rubber band hitting against the skin. We can offer topical pain relief for patients in the rare case that they cannot tolerate the treatment.
How long does it take?+-
The length of each treatment varies depending on what and where you are treating but usually lasts between 30-60 minutes.
How many treatments will I need?+-
Many people see results after their very first treatment but best results will naturally be seen after your recommended course of treatments. Your nurse will advise you on the amount of treatments you will require which can depend on the area being treating.
How soon will I see results?+-
Most people begin to enjoy the benefits and see the results after their first treatment. Long term results are achieved after a course of treatments.
How long will the results last?+-
Treating hair growth with medical-grade laser when applied correctly should remove “current” hairs. We all have dormant hair follicles that may grow in the future so we cannot say that an area being treated with laser will be permanently hair free. What we can definitely say is that laser hair removal with a medically graded laser is the best and most cost effective form of hair removal available in the world today.
Is there any downtime?+-
After your treatment you may experience some redness and heat in the area. This will dissipate within 24 hours.

Laser hair removal is the best invention ever! I went in for one area but ended up getting my underarms, bikini and lower legs done! The results are amazing after just 1 treatment. I believe River Medical has the best equipment and definitely get the best results for me. I had tried laser elsewhere but it just didn’t work, the hair kept coming back. I would definitely recommend River Medical for laser hair removal.- River Medical patient on Laser Hair Removal
