At Skiin, we provide IPL and laser hair removal in Melbourne that is 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 in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, our laser skin clinic in Melbourne is not limited by your condition, skin colour, hair colour or hair thickness.
The best laser hair removal in Melbourne 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. Our Melbourne 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 laser hair removal clinic in Melbourne can remove hair that’s growing at the time, but because some hair will be in a dormant stage, one treatment will not remove all hair. Therefore, it is recommended to have a course of laser hair removal in Melbourne 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 single session of laser hair removal in Melbourne can take anywhere between a few minutes to 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 the best laser hair removal results.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal is a Medical Procedure that uses a Laser, an intense, pulsating beam of light to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to the individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser destroys the hair follicle which inhibits future hair growth. At Skiin we use the latest, most current technology providing the highest quality lasers to treat Hair Removal.
