What our customers say

I highly recommend the laser hair removal for everyone. It has been the best investment I could have done for myself. The results are visible from the very first session, the treatment itself is not painful at all, the price is super decent and Kavita, is just a sweetheart. I did full body laser hair removal and I am almost at the end of my sessions.There is almost no hair left. I can not imagine struggling ever with monthly waxing.Don’t think twice! Just do it!

What our customers say

 If you are looking to start your Laser Hair Removal journey at a clinic that provides you with reliable and effective treatments, then look no further. My experience with The Clinical Affair was above and beyond. Kavita and the team are fantastic and all the staff have an in-depth knowledge on the procedure. During my initial consultation the Therapist was very knowledgeable about laser treatments and I felt confident to start my full body laser journey as I was well informed about the entire process. The Laser Treatment was exceptional and painless. Even after just two treatments I could see a big difference where the hair is not coming back as it used to. Booking appointments was easy as they are very accommodating and the clinic is in an amazing location - less than 10 minutes walk from Selfridges. Honestly one of the best experiences - I have recommended it to all of my friends. Thank you to all the team, can’t wait to see you soon…

What our customers say

From the phone consultation to the treatment room, I felt very welcomed. During my consultation everything was explained to me in detail and I felt confident starting my laser journey. Everyone at the clinic is really nice so I felt really comfortable throughout the entire process…would not go anywhere else!

What our customers say

Since I started my laser treatments here I have not only seen clear results but I was surprised that the general appearance of my skin has improved. They have the latest laser machine and it’s painless. The staff were very thorough and professional, which made me feel very comfortable. Highly recommend!
