5 Best Laser Hair Removal Services in Edinburgh

How We Picked the Best Laser Hair Removal Services in Edinburgh


We asked around about the clinic’s reputation in the field of laser hair removal. 


We also assessed the technicians of each clinic in terms of two factors: their skill and their bedside manner. Doing so will allow you to know which clinic has the best techs in the industry.


Since budget is typically an important factor, we also checked out varying clinics which offer laser hair removal services at different price points. You can simply choose which clinic fits your budget.


It is important for customers to be comfortable, so we also looked at the ambiance of each clinic. This will help you choose which ones fit your personal style.

  • Winner of the 2015 Aesthetic Industry Award 
  • Uses the Soprano Ice Laser System to provide painless treatments
  • Free Consultation & Test Patch
  • Unique pricing structure
  • Wide variety of services


  • Reports of inconsistent service
  • A bit pricey
  • Decor is a bit too dated

Winner of the 2015 Aesthetic Industry Award, Soprano Ice is definitely one of the leading laser hair removal services in Edinburgh .

They won for coming up with the Soprano Ice Laser System, a cutting-edge machine featuring ‘in-motion’ technology.

By incorporating multiple laser wavelengths and technologies, this machine allows practitioners to treat all skin and hair types painlessly, which is great for customers.

We like that this clinic offers free consultation wherein they could answer all of your questions, and give you a free test patch as well. This is great for those still on the fence about getting the treatment.

Soprano Ice Edinburgh’s pricing structure is quite unique. It actually allows clients to pay per session whilst still benefiting from Soprano Ice Edinburgh’s rewards & offers.

However, if you are planning on getting the same skin therapist for each session, you might not be able to. 

Some customers were disappointed to get different skin therapists for their sessions, and they think that some therapists were more skilled than others.

Compared to other clinics, their laser hair removal treatment is pricey as well. For instance, full legs cost £250 per session, and 6-8 sessions are needed for permanent hair removal.

Perhaps during the consultation, you could make it clear that you prefer the same skin therapist for all of your sessions.

On a brighter note, if you are looking to maximise your day out, this clinic is also known for their facials such as their Egyptian and Oxygen Boost facials. 

You can also join their VIP Brow & Lash Club. Membership levels vary, starting at £20 per month which we think is rather reasonable.

In terms of ambiance, we felt that the place looks a little dated with its eclectic wallpaper in the lobby, stark white walls, and silver mirrors. It does not feel as welcoming and fresh as the other clinics.

However, for a perfect day of beauty which includes laser hair removal treatments and facials, we still recommend Soprano Ice as the ideal clinic for you.

2. Tina O’Doherty’s Laser Hair Removal Clinic

  • 15 years in the business
  • Uses the Diode Laser Hair Removal system
  • Upgrades their lasers every six months
  • Offers laser hair removal to transgender clients
  • Beautifully styled clinic


  • Limited range of services
  • Some sensitivity can be felt during treatment

With 15 years of experience under its belt, Tina O’Doherty’s Laser Hair Removal Clinic is definitely worth a try.

For those in a hurry, you’d be happy to know that they use the Diode Laser Hair Removal system that destroys your hair follicles in a flash. For instance, your full legs can be treated in 10-15 minutes.

To ensure that their laser systems are running smoothly, they implement periodic upgrades every six months. We believe this is a sign that they are serious about their specialty.

Unlike other clinics, they pride themselves on offering laser hair removal to transgender clients which shows their strong sense of community.

Stepping in their clinic would make you smile and feel at ease right away. Their decor is very tasteful and cosy, with their white, cream, and lilac walls, exposed ceiling light wood beams, and all white hallways. 

Since they specialise mostly in laser hair removal and some body sculpting services as well, they have a more limited selection of services compared to other clinics.

Also, some customers have reported feeling some sensitivity in the areas where they were treated.

Do ask all of your questions about the treatment during your consultation so that you’d know what to expect during and after the session.

As a whole, we do recommend Tina O’Doherty’s Laser Hair Removal Clinic for its inviting ambiance, and speedy service.

  • Has delivered more than five million treatments to their clients
  • Free consultation
  • Affordable laser removal prices
  • Also offers injectables and fillers
  • Bright, modern clinic


  • Faulty booking system
  • Issues with rude technicians
  • Some reports of hyperpigmentation

Having delivered more than five million treatments to their clients, Thérapie is definitely a well-established and experienced shop.

What’s great is you can book a free consultation online so that you’d know which treatments would be suitable for you.

Their prices are comparatively cheaper than some of their counterparts. For example, for full legs plus any bikini & underarm, you’d only pay £79.95 per session (10 sessions max).

We do love their bright, modern clinic due to its fresh and youthful vibe. It has an all white theme without looking too clinical and elegant grey flooring.

On the other hand, several customers were annoyed by their ineffective booking system. 

For instance, a customer showed up for a scheduled appointment which was confirmed online but was told that she did not have a schedule. This actually happened to her twice.

We also spoke to some of their previous customers, and they thought some of the other technicians were rude, which is a shame.

Also, some have experienced hyperpigmentation after a treatment. This happens when patches of skin become darker than the surrounding skin. 

Again, do ask what to expect during your free consultation to prepare you for these possibilities.

For affordable laser hair removal treatments, feel free to visit Thérapie.

  • The owner has been in the beauty industry for over 18 years
  • Specialises in permanent make-up, laser hair removal, and tattoo removal 
  • Newly upgraded booking system
  • Trendy-looking French inspired salon


  • Closed on Mondays and Sundays
  • App needs a lot of work

Novella Beauty Clinic is one of the most well-known laser hair treatment removal clinics in Edinburgh. It’s no surprise since The owner, Loraine, has been in the beauty industry for over 18 years.

They specialise in permanent make-up, laser hair removal, and tattoo removal. If you are looking to get permanent brows or have your tattoo removed, you can simply book a session on the same day as your laser hair treatment.

In addition, they have just recently upgraded their online booking system, allowing customers to have a fuss-free appointment booking experience.

We are actually quite taken with their chic and trendy French inspired clinic. They have a lush and inviting vertical garden, striped black and white French-style chairs, and pristine white tables, making one feel special and pampered.

However, unlike other clinics that are open seven days a week, they are closed on Sundays and Mondays. Customers who are only available during the weekends might need to make do with a Saturday appointment.

Also, their online app needs a lot of work. 

For instance, there were some typographical errors, and you can only book with Loraine (the owner). For a specific staff member, you would need to book them via their separate Facebook accounts, which seems inconvenient for us.

We still recommend their laser hair treatment services, but you might want to go to another place if you want permanent brows.

  • Established for over 12 years
  • Specialises in men and women’s laser hair removal 
  • Also offers skin treatments and hair styling services
  • Posh looking clinic.
  • Offers a permanent 20% discount when you book 6 sessions in advance


  • Pricey
  • Not open all week

Having been established for over 12 years, Bamboo Boutique is certainly worth a visit. 

While they specialise in men and women’s laser hair removal, they also offer skin treatments and hair styling services. Thus, customers can pick and choose from their services and book them all on the same day.

Additionally, we love their posh-looking clinic. It is a delightful mixture of modern and French design, with its wallpapered white and purple walls, warm wooden floors, silver plated mirrors, and gorgeous chandeliers.

If you want to save money, they offer a permanent 20% discount when you book 6 laser hair removal sessions in advance. Thus, instead of having to pay £1,770, you’d only pay £1,416.

Without the discount, however, they actually have steep prices. For example, for full legs, each session costs £295, and the whole treatment usually requires 6-8 sessions.

Like Novella Beauty Clinic, they are also closed on Sundays and Mondays, so do set your schedule accordingly. 

All in all, if you want to remove unwanted hair and have your hair styled on the same day, then head on over to Bamboo Boutique. We do recommend that you book 6 laser hair removal sessions in advance to take advantage of their discount.
