At Skiin, we provide laser and IPL treatments that are safe and efficient.
We understand that excess body and facial hair can be unattractive and embarrassing. While there are many ways to remove it, such as plucking, waxing and shaving, these methods can be messy, inconvenient and difficult to maintain. IPL and laser hair removal treatments are widely considered to be a better option, as they provide a controlled reduction of hair while being able to specifically target a desired area.
With the experience, technology and facilities necessary to carry out laser hair removal, our laser skin clinic in Melbourne is not limited by your condition, skin colour, hair colour or hair thickness.
Laser hair removal is achieved by destroying the roots of the hair with a concentrated laser beam. The laser is directed to the melanin (pigment) within the hair follicle and converted into heat energy. This energy grows to a critical level, at which point it destroys the stem cell and hinders the hair’s ability to grow.
When it comes to laser hair removal, people with dark hair will respond better to laser and IPL treatments. This is because their hair contains a higher concentration of melanin and absorbs certain wavelengths more effectively than white, blond, or grey hair. Laser hair removal treatments can be used on all areas of the body except the inner area close to the eyes. Common treatment areas include the underarms, legs, upper clip, chin, bikini, back, and chest.
A single treatment at our Melbourne laser hair removal clinic can remove hair that’s growing at the time, but because some hair will be in a dormant stage, one laser hair removal treatment will not remove all hair. Therefore, it is recommended to have a course of treatments every 8 to 10 weeks. Depending on each individual case, the desired result can be achieved anywhere between 4 and 8 treatments.
Depending on the size of the area being treated, a laser hair removal session can take anywhere between a few minutes or an hour. The treatment causes minimal discomfort, and has often been described as being similar to the flick of an elastic band. For those who would prefer not to experience this feeling, a topical anaesthetic can be applied to the area.
After treatment, it is important to use sunscreen, protect the skin, and follow the advice of your practitioner to ensure an optimal result.
Our qualified team of nurses, doctors, aesthetic physicians and dermal cosmetic clinicians are able to provide expert advice and dedicated care. Call us today or contact us online to book an appointment for the laser hair removal in Melbourne and the northern suburbs.
