How does it work?

At Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic we work with the latest medical-grade laser hair removal technology, to achieve permanent hair reduction of 70-95%. There are multiple lasers that can be used for partial or full body laser hair removal, including Alexandrite lasers and Diode lasers. Alexandrite lasers (such as Candela GentleLaser lasers) use a 755nm wavelength, while Diode lasers operate on a wavelength of 800 or 810nm.

Our laser hair removal technology have a larger spot size that allows for a larger area to be covered, helping to reduce treatment time. We use Candela GentleLase Alexandrite lasers, which are the most efficient medical grade laser hair removal treatment available. Our lasers emit a single concentrated light beam which is absorbed and transmitted by the pigment in the hair. This light energy is then converted into thermal energy, effectively ‘disabling’ the hair’s ability to grow.

Safe enough for the most sensitive areas, such as a Brazilian, the laser hair removal lasers also feature a unique Dynamic Cooling Device to soothe the skin and counteract the heat of the laser.

Post-Treatment Care For Laser Hair Removal

Side Effects and Post-Treatment Care

After your hair removal session at one of our Melbourne clinics, gently apply the laser aid gel to the treated area twice a day. Redness is unlikely to last more than 2 days, although in isolated instances it may be longer. The redness is a natural response and you need not be concerned about it as the daily application of a post care product will soothe the skin and reduce inflammation.

Until redness has completely subsided, avoid all of the following:

  • Applying make-up over the treated areas, particularly the face
  • Use of scented lotions or soaps, exfoliant creams, loofa sponges and aggressive scrubbing
  • Hot or cold water – wash with tepid water
  • Shaving
  • Swimming pools and spas with multiple chemicals/chlorine
  • Activities that cause excessive perspiration

In the unusual case of side effects such as crusting of the skin, please contact us directly.

Strictly avoid any sun exposure for at least one week after the laser skin treatment, as the treated area will be more prone to sunburn and pigmentation change. Keep the area covered and use a sunblock with a protection factor of 30+, applied hourly while you are in the sun.

Frequently Asked Questions


How often do I need to get Laser hair Removal?
The usual time period between two laser hair removal sessions is anywhere between 4 to 6 weeks. Depending upon the pace of your hair growth, you will be asked to come in for your follow-up session around this time period, so that it coincides with the growth phase of your new hair, which is when laser treatments will be most effective.

Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
Laser hair removal is a relatively painless method as compared to other methods like waxing and electrolysis. That being said, the process could cause minor discomfort for certain people. This is completely dependent on their individual pain threshold, but is often likened to the snapping of an elastic band against their skin or a zapping sensation. At Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic, our lasers also feature a Dynamic Cooling Device, which helps to counteract the heating effect of laser pulses with a cooling sensation.

How long should I go in between Laser Hair Removal appointments?
As mentioned above, the usual gap between two sessions of laser hair removal is 4 – 6 weeks. It is recommended to adhere to this time period and not miss a session; else you risk the likelihood of missing a period of hair growth. Laser works best when hair is the growth phase, when they absorb the light pulse due to which the hair follicles get damaged, retarding future hair growth.
                                                                                                                         
What Laser Hair Removal machines do you use?
Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic uses Candela GentleLase lasers, which are considered to be the best lasers in the market today. They are extremely effective during hair removal as they are able to target many follicles with a wider beam, while also being gentle on the surrounding skin tissue.
 
Can I still get Laser Hair Removal if I am pregnant/ breastfeeding?
While laser hair removal is generally considered safe, no studies have yet been done to ascertain its safety for pregnant or lactating mothers. It is therefore advisable to avoid getting laser hair removal while you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as there are many hormonal changes that happen in the body. You could however, get laser treatment after a 6 – 12-month gap post pregnancy or breastfeeding, whichever is later, by which time your hormones will stabilize to earlier levels.
                                                                                               
Can I have Laser Hair Removal over the top of tattoos?
Laser hair removals are designed to be absorbed by darker pigments over the skin’s surface, and this makes them unsafe for use over tattoos. In fact, doing this could result in potentially disastrous consequences, with excessive absorption of the laser heat and burning or blisters, not to mention distorting the tattoo permanently.
                                                                               
Which areas can be treated with laser hair removal?
You can use laser on practically any body part that has unwanted hair. But it is most commonly used for removing facial hair, hair from the arms and legs, underarm areas and bikini line.
                     
Are there any known side effects of laser hair removal?
Some people might experience redness and irritation or changes in skin colour, or even crusting, blistering and scarring. This makes it all the more important to choose a certified and experienced practitioner for your laser hair removal treatment in Melbourne.
                                                     
Is Laser Hair Removal really permanent?
While laser hair removal offers long term results, they aren’t permanent. Laser treatment works by damaging the hair follicles and keeping them dormant for a long while to prevent new hair from growing. But you can rest assured that most clients experience years of no unwanted hair growth. Regular maintenance sessions will help to stay hair-free for longer.
                                                         
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal works on the principle of selective photothermolysis. The laser light beams are absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles and are converted to heat energy, which destroys the hair follicles at the base of the hair, inhibiting and delaying future growth for a long time to come. It must be remembered that laser hair removal requires multiple sessions for better results, to catch all the hair follicles in their growth phase!
                                                                                   
Is it worth getting laser hair removal?
Absolutely! If the thought of repeated shaving and waxing sounds like a chore and the prospect of having silky smooth skin, free from unwanted hair sounds very tempting, then you must try out laser hair removal!
       
How many Laser Hair Removal treatments will I need?
The actual number of laser hair removal treatments will actually depend on the area to be treated and the intensity of hair growth. It can take anywhere between four to eight sessions for the full treatment cycle
