No more worrying about unsightly hair! No more shaving, waxing, or plucking!IPL hair removal

Our Chromolite-S is a state-of-the-art Intense Pulsed Light System (IPL). Clinical trials have proven this to be effective in permanently reducing hair growth. Quick effective and suitable for almost any area of the body. The new pure sapphire waveguide (the largest on any IPL system) reduces radiated heat thus massively improving client comfort. In most cases, 8 – 10 monthly treatments are usually required.

What our clients say


“I have been to other beauty salons in the past but found Essentials is by far the best.

The staff are welcoming, helpful and so friendly. The infra-red sauna followed by a

massage is fantastic but I have now changed my entire facial routine down to the

amazing facial I had. Thanks to all at Essentials!!”


Fiona McGrady, Hinckley
