Wouldn’t it be great if long term hair removal could be pain-free, fast and effective?/ revolution in hair removal is virtually pain free, quick and highly effective. Unlike electrolysis, waxing and other forms of hair removal the SMARTDiode system uses light waves to remove hair without the pain of tugging or burning. It is also an improvement on similar systems using light waves because it is more powerful so removes hair more quickly with fewer treatments needed.
By using three different wavelengths of light and some very intelligent software, the SMARTDiode hair removal system can treat all types of skin. These different wavelengths target different parts of the hair for optimum removal no matter what the colour, type or thickness of hair. A large treatment area and efficient skin cooling method means we can remove your hair quickly and painlessly.
Our team can use the SMARTDiode on any part of the body you would like hair removed from as the interface is very easy to use so we can quickly change the settings to suit the different types of hair in each part. Once we have assessed your skin, we can enter a few simple details into the machine so it applies the right level of power to comfortably and quickly remove your hair. Like all of these types of treatments, more than one application is necessary because hair can only be removed properly during one stage of its growth cycle so a few treatments are necessary over a number of months to remove it all completely.
If you are interested in this hair removal treatment, book an appointment and we will assess your situation to give you an accurate idea of what to expect.

Frequently Asked Questions
Laser hair removal is such an effective, and popular solution to unwanted body hair because it can be used on any skin type or tone, from pale to very dark, making it suitable for everyone.*
SMARTDiode Hair Removal isn’t painful, instead it produces just a pleasant warming at the area being treated. We recommend a few sessions to completely eradicate the hairs although those with fairer hair may require more treatments.
The E Motion, medical grade laser we use for this treatment is so precise we can treat hairs virtually anywhere on the body. Your practitioner will be able to assess the area you want to be treated during your free initial consultation to test your skin and make sure you and your hair are suitable for the treatment.
*Grey hair or hair without any pigmentation. This is because the laser technology requires the melanin (colour) in the hair to absorb the pulsed light which in turn destroys the hair follicle.
How long does a SMARTDiode Hair Removal last?
Using revolutionary e-motion delivery a hair no more treatment is completed in just minutes. The treatment applicator is swept back and forth repeatedly across the designated area whist rapid pulses of low energy light are pulsed into the skin ensuring full coverage and effective treatment. Feel free to come in your lunch break we will have you in and out in no time at all!
How many SMARTDiode Hair Removal will I need?
Each SMARTDiode Hair Removal treatment effects approximately 30% of the hair within the target area. Sarah Hurst Skin Clinic recommends you complete a minimum of 6 treatments. We offer pre-treatment consultations and during this we can ascertain your hair type and give you a more individual recommendation. The average amount of treatments required for success is 8. We suggest looking at 10-12 treatments to achieve the results you are looking for. Fairer hairs will require more treatments.
Is SMARTDiode Hair Removal suitable for everyone?
The great thing about this treatment is that it is suitable for most people! Whatever your skin type, whether your male or female and regardless of your skin colour. This treatment however won’t work on grey/white hair without any pigment.
Will SMARTDiode Hair Removal hurt?
A question that everyone asks, will it hurt. Unlike traditional laser or IPL which uses high energy levels that can cause discomfort and pain, a hair no more treatment uses selected wavelengths of low energy light which makes it both gentle and comfortable, resulting in only a pleasant warming of the skin. The treatment also uses active skin cooling through the applicator which is capable of -4oc and this ensures complete comfort even in the most sensitive areas.
