Laser Hair Removal in Melbourne

Medical Lasers & Specialist Laser Hair Removal practitioners in Melbourne

In the past, the usual remedies for unwanted hair were plucking, shaving, waxing, or chemical depilatories. Some are painful, some are messy, and all are only temporary.

The aim of laser hair removal is to reduce the quantity and density of hair growth, delay the regrowth period, and to minimise the occurrence of conditions such as folliculitis and ingrown hairs.

Unlike other treatments, the medical laser hair removal process is easy! It requires no creams or gels, no pre-treatment waxing, and no needles. In fact, laser hair removal is a medical breakthrough. During the hair removal treatment the laser beam penetrates your skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle which is just under the skins surface. The laser energy destroys the follicle with the heat that it generates. Because the laser beam is large in diameter, it affects a large number of hairs simultaneously.

Laser hair removal treatments are comfortable, treating hair follicles in a fraction of the time of other methods, using only the power of laser light. Some patients may feel a slight discomfort with the laser pulse, sometimes described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort is minimized by our laser hair removal cooling mechanism. For some patients, a topical anaesthetic may be used prior to treatment.

All your laser hair removal treatment comfort options will be discussed with our medical practitioners prior to treatment.

This includes applying 30+ daily, as well as refraining from sun baking or solarium use. Spray tans may be applied, however must be completely scrubbed off prior to the scheduled treatment.

Downtime and post-treatment care

After laser hair removal  treatment the affected areas may appear inflamed for 1-5 days. During this time it is best to reapply cold packs and aloe vera to aid recovery.You may shave in between laser hair removal treatments, however it is advised to refrain from plucking, waxing or bleaching the growth, as this will not allow for effective laser treatment.
