Hi all, I wanted to look into the option of laser hair removal. I currently have private healthcare (AXA) but I am leaving my job soon and will need to decide whether to keep it or not. Does anyone have any experience/information about availability/cost of laser hair removal on private healthcare or NHS?

You can buy laser hair removal machine on amazon going for treatments will cost you more money in long run they make you come for more appointments that you don't need and it is only permanent hair reduction not permanent hair removal

It's painless no pain at all they have to shave the area first otherwise they charge you if you don't shave. You wear special uv protective glasses and they use a warm machine to go over the area but treatments we're 100 pound per session and requires 8 sessions also note it's not permanent hair removal it's only permanent hair reduction so the hair will be thin instead of thick hair

if the skin is inflamed like redness round the skin buttocks they tend not to do it.

I felt I wasn't gaining progress with it and wasting my money so gave it up.

You can buy the exact same machine on amazon that they use just type in laser hair removal i found doing it myself was better. But when you got an open wound it's not advised to do it until fully healed.

Cleft lift you don't need to shave it fixes it all for you.

DiD you have a open wound or was it closed when you got it done Also do they shave the area then use machine or do you need to go in to get shaved then come back for treatment

First treatment they shave it for you but expect you to shave it for next session otherwise they charge u but they let me off sadly my wound was still slight open in 2016 and my skin was slight inflamed so I had to stop and choose to do it on my back instead so hair's didn't fall into the wound and cause another sinus.

Hair's that fall from you're back can cause the sinus as well.

But cleft lift doesn't require any laser or shaving the ultimate cure although that everyone says on here.

I believe the cleft lift will lift up all the skin cover the open wound and heal it up from the inside from what I read you have a drain in with a 2 week off work recovery. But after speaking to reception it can only be done at spire in Portsmouth not sure how you would get home with a drain in.

Cleft lift can be done with an open wound cause it lifts all the skin covers it while it's stitched up. It will help in Getting rid of all the sweating in that area that is preventing it from healing.

Daily dressings with the nurse's is rubbish none of there dressings heal this wound doesn't matter how nice the nurse's are none of the dressings heal it.

Even my pico dressing is struggling to heal it.

I be going part private and part nhs with senapati.
