  • How often do I need to get Laser Hair Removal?
    Depending on your hair and skin type and the area being treated, you will usually require treatments at 4-6 week intervals. Each part of the body has a different hair growing cycle, so the hair loss will vary depending on what phase your follicles are in at the time of treatment. However at least 10 treatments are required for a permanent result.
  • Will all hair be removed? or can it be just reduced?

    I can take a few sessions to see complete hair reduction. If you’re not ready to reduce all hair talk to your therapist about limiting the treatment plan.

  • Do you offer numbing for Laser Hair Removal?

    Unfortunately, topical numbing creams are not safe nor effective when doing Laser Hair Removal. The sensation you feel in treatment is not felt on the skin, but in the follicle of the hair. Unfortunately numbing cream cannot penetrate deep enough to minimise discomfort that may be felt at the follicle.

    One of the benefits of laser hair removal is that the treatment is virtually painless, especially compared to waxing. Each pulse lasts less than second, producing a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a rubber band snap on the skin. Our advanced cooling machines used in all laser treatments cools your skin before, during and post treatment to minimise any discomfort.

  • Can I have Laser Hair Removal if I am on certain medications?

    There are some medications that make your skin photo-sensitive, these medications are but not limited to oral and topical vitamin A’s, Antibiotics, and some Anti-depressants. Its best to speak with your medical professional about this. Once medical clearance has been obtained, we are able to test patch you with the laser to determine it is safe to commence treatment.  

  • What do I need to do to prepare for my Laser Hair Removal appointment?
    Before your appointment, we ask that you Shave the area between 12-24 hours before your treatment Avoid chemical peels or laser resurfacing Exfoliate to remove any dead skin build up Ensure no residue fake tan is present on the skin Avoid excessive sun exposure on area being treated two weeks prior (including solariums or tanning drugs) Avoid using topical creams/moisturisers, perfumes to the area being treated before appointment Do not wax or pluck hairs four weeks prior to laser treatment

  • I have blonde hair, can I still get Laser Hair Removal?

  • What is the minimum age for Laser Hair Removal?

    At Laser Clinics Australia, we recommend that Laser Hair Removal clients undergoing Laser Hair Removal treatments are 18 years or older. This ensures optimal treatment results. Prior to the age of 18 years, hair growth has not fully developed due to changing hormonal levels.

    In certain instances, we can provide Laser Hair Removal treatments to clients 12 years and over. However, for clients 18 years and under, a parent or guardian is required at the clinic for your first treatment. Your parent or guardian is required to sign a consent form and be present in the consultation to ensure they understand the procedure and aftercare. Note, it is optional for parents and guardians to be in the treatment room for the first treatment.
