Staff & general: I couldn't recommend Cork Laser Care more highly. The staff are simply fantastic and so friendly. The treatments are absolutely fabulous- no pain AT ALL and amazing results. So far, I have had my upper lip, chin, underarm and legs treated and ,wow, I am happy I left waxing behind me. No more ingrown hairs, waiting for regrowth or damaged skin. Their location is brilliant. Very central in Cork city and in a beautiful old building on the banks of the Lee. Their treatment rooms are private (you buzz in) and are very spacious and lavishly decorated. Cost wise, treatments & value for money: When you compare the long term costs of waxing versus laser it is WELL worth it. Everyone's hair (growth speed, thickness, pigment etc) is different so you have to have a consultation to get a quote as you may need more or less treatments for final results. I saw a noticeable difference after the 2nd or 3rd treatment and was pretty much hair free by the 8th. I get a 'top up' about once a year on fully treated areas to nab any newbie's that have snuck in. A word of advice: Don't be fooled by other places, ladies and gents- you should NOT feel any 'hot' after effects or remaining marks after a treatment. I discovered this the hard way after buying an online 'deal' for a different clinic- they burnt my legs in patches and said that it was totally normal then cancelled my appointments, never returned my calls and disappeared from their premises. I hear they have relocated but I will not name names as I am not 100% sure. Please, really look into who is doing your treatment and if in doubt, RUN. To save you hassle, just give Gerri in Cork Laser Clinic a call.
