How laser hair removal works

The laser works by directing concentrated light into the hair follicle inhibiting the hair’s ability to grow without disrupting or damaging the skin’s surface.

Our lasers use a wide beam which allows the removal of multiple hair follicles at the same time.

Our experienced Therapists will take your skin and hair type into account before creating a personalised treatment plan.

The Candela GentleLASE Pro is designed to work for clients with dark hair and lighter skin, while the GentleYAG Pro works best on a darker skin tone.

Designed with sensitive skin in mind, our laser hair removal technology is safe enough to be used on any part of the body and target different skin types whilst ensuring maximum results. All of our lasers feature a unique dynamic cooling device that helps to calm, soothe and protect the skin.

Laser hair removal benefits include: 

- Permanent hair reduction

- Reduce ingrown hairs 

- Safe and effective technology 

- Convenient and cost-effective

- With every treatment, hair grows back thinner and lighter

Laser Clinics Australia has the most affordable laser hair removal prices and will match any competitor s price.*

For your initial course of laser hair removal treatment, we recommend approximately 10 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Everyone is slightly different so book in a complimentary consultation with one of our Laser Therapists at your nearest clinic location.

Preparation

  • Shave the treatment area the night before your appointment.
  • Do not wax in the 4 weeks leading up to your appointment as pigment is required in the hair follicle for the laser to identify the hair and treatment to be effective. 
  • Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight for 2 weeks prior to your treatment and always protect the skin with sunscreen. 

Aftercare

There may be some mild heat and redness in areas that have been treated. Soothe any redness and sensitivity with Skinstitut Laser Aid, this will continue to draw heat out of the skin and keep the area cool and hydrated. Laser Aid can be applied liberally for 3-5 days or until the skin has returned to its pre-treatment state.

For 24 hours post-treatment, avoid shaving, waxing or plucking hair, exfoliation, excessive sweating, swimming or saunas, very hot showers and tight restrictive clothing.

Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight for 2 weeks after your treatment and always use the Skinstitut Age Defence 50+ to protect the skin and maintain results.

Skinstitut Glycolic Scrub 14% is recommended to use 5 days post-treatment to ensure the hair is encouraged to shed from the follicle, aid in the treatment of ingrown hairs and allowing an increase in benefits from better absorption of the laser.

Buy any 3 Skinstitut products for $109 or any 5 for $159. Available at all clinics.

Frequently Asked Questions

    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
  • 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.

    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.

Our advanced cooling machines used in all laser treatments cools your skin before, during and post treatment to minimise any discomfort.
