All clients at Thyme Laser and Beauty can be assured of a confidential service but we know that for some, trusting us to be discreet and non-discriminatory is of paramount importance. We don’t mind who you are or how you present when you come for your treatment – we have plenty of experience so you can be assured of a comfortable, non-scary time with us!
The most frequently booked treatments by our LGBTQ+ clients are included on this page but as with all clients, a consultation would dictate the best treatment for your needs.
ELECTROLYSIS is an extremely effective way to remove hair but as each hair follicle is treated individually, it takes its time especially on larger areas.
It works by sending a current into each individual hair, which causes a chemical reaction at its root, destroying it and therefore stopping any regrowth.
Electrolysis is effective on all types of skin and hair and a patch test is required.
IPL LASER HAIR REMOVAL uses short, safe bursts of intense light to remove unwanted fuzz. Small or large areas of hair from all body sites can be removed in. Most people describe the sensation as practically pain-free and while tolerance of pain is very individual, no anaesthetics are required.
The technical bit: Light is absorbed by melanin (the pigment in the hair follicle) which heats up and destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.
While most people are suitable for treatment, the darker your hair, the more effective IPL will be. If you have grey/white hair (i.e. no melanin in the hair follicle) you would not be suitable for IPL so we would recommend electrolysis instead.
Patch tests are always required and at your initial consultation (especially if you’re particularly fair) we will ascertain if the treatment will be successful for you.
