Laser Hair Removal: A Nation of Smooth Operators - The Harley Medical Group Investigates

LONDON, January 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Like clothes and hairstyles, pubic hair is always subject to changing fashions and strong opinions. In 2004, with Tom Ford at the helm Gucci shaped a model's pubic hair into a 'G' as part of a controversial ad campaign [see picture]. And in her new book, actress Cameron Diaz dedicates an entire chapter to the subject, urging women to consider that their pubic hair might serve as 'pretty draping'. But according to The Harley Medical Group, au naturale is out and the UK's women are becoming a nation of smooth operators.

As one of the UK's leading providers of Cosmetic Surgery and Laser & Skin treatments, figures from The Harley Medical Group are often indicative of growing trends. And its end of year figures for Laser Hair Removal reveal that more and more women are choosing to go 'Hollywood' and 'Brazilian', permanently. In the last 12 months, the number of women booking in for pubic laser hair removal has grown by 25%, while Laser Hair Removal for the bikini line overall is currently growing 20 times faster than for any other area of the body.

Recent significant advances in Laser Hair Removal are undoubtedly part of the reason why the UK is seeing a growing trend for keeping things smooth and tidy down below. The Harley Medical Group uses lasers approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and its 21 clinics nationwide have exclusive rights to treat all hair colours, including blonde and grey hair. Their lasers are the most technologically advanced and the Group has already successfully performed over 250,000 treatments.
