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 method of permanently reducing hair growth from various areas of the body and face.
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.
Laser hair removal is the perfect solution for anyone wanting a low maintenance long-term method of hair removal. No, there won’t be instant results − but in the long term, you’ll be thankful for the time put in at the start. Shaving, waxing and tweezing hair are all temporary hair removal options. Why not opt for something that will keep you hair-free all year round?
At Skiin, we use a machine that’s suitable for all skin types, makinglaser hair removal ideal for everyone. However, blonde, grey and red hairs are a lot harder to treat, so more sessions may be necessary.
Ultimately, laser hair removal is ideal for anyone who wants to avoid shaving, waxing and tweezing frequently. It’s a quick, easy and permanent method for achieving smooth, hair-free skin.
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 without damaging the skin’s surface. Our Dermal Clinicians target the hair in the Anagen stage, which is the hair’s active growth phase. This is the most effective phase to target during the hair removal process.
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 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.
This can vary for each individual, however generally 6 to 10 treatments are required for longer lasting results. You will see a 90% reduction of hair within 4 to 6 sessions.
