Depil Concept is a Portuguese company founded in 2007. The company’s goal was to make effective permanent hair removal and phototherapy treatments widely available, solving hair and skin problems for those in need. The company began franchising the concept in 2008 and has shown a rapid growth of clinics network not only in Portugal but reaching into six other countries - building over 170 franchise points.

In 2017, Depil Concept implemented their own tandem high-quality cosmetics brand called Concept+. A year later the company rebranded, deciding to pivot to a fresher, modern image that allowed the company to target larger markets. These long-term vision changes may have been the catalyst in the company's jump in annual growth, which went from 12.5% in 2018 to 18% in 2020.  

The company has master franchisees in 8 countries and is currently on the lookout for further master franchisees as well as regular franchisees across Europe and the world. Depil Concept has accumulated 15 years of profit growth due to their well-defined customer satisfaction strategy. Depil Concept are the only chain of laser hair removal to provide a guarantee certificate for their clients and have served more than 250 thousand clients globally.

Depil Concept’s successful business strategy doesn’t all revolve around customers, it’s equally about providing comprehensive support and guidance to their franchisees. For this the evidence is clear, with more than 80% of the franchisees in their network taking out a second contract with the brand. Furthermore, Depil Concept are the only photoepilation brand to be awarded the, 'Best Support to the Network' award by the IFF - Franchising Information Institute.
