Superdrug Laser Hair Removal

Hair Removal / February 24, 2021

Would you consider popping into Superdrug for a spot of Botox or laser hair-removal?

Now you can, as the High Street chain rolls out its in-store Pro Skin clinics, offering anti-wrinkle injections, laser hair-removal and microdermabrasion.

Prices start at £49 for laser hair-removal and rise to £149 for Botox or fillers, with peels for £69 and Dermaroller treatments at £138.

Quick beauty fix: Superdrug has started rolling out its in-store Pro Skin clinics

In Harley Street, you’ll pay around £250 for Botox, upwards of £350 for fillers, and £325 for Dermaroller.

Superdrug’s Lisa Pellizzon says they can offer treatments at such a low price because they’ve slashed the mark-up.

It’s also because, with the exception of Botox and fillers, treatments are carried out by beauticians, not medical personnel.

Yet I’m not convinced skimping on treatments like this is anything more than false economy.

I love Superdrug for its cut-price cotton wool and nail varnish. But if I’m going to have a foreign substance injected into my face, I don’t want someone cheap and inexperienced; I want the best.

I want a doctor who has been recommended, who has trained in dermatology, who is a member of a regulated organisation.
