Laser Hair Removal

Are you fed up with shaving, waxing or using depilatory creams to remove your hair?

Have you wondered if laser hair removal is right for you?

Getting rid of excess body and facial hair can be painful, costly, time-consuming, and inefficient. Shaving, waxing, plucking, and depilatory creams are inconvenient, messy, and only temporary. Laser hair removal is faster and safer than any other permanent hair removal method and can treat large areas with each session.

When it comes to removing body and facial hair, there are many options to consider. Laser hair removal damages the hair follicle to minimise hair growth and has become a popular semi-permanent hair removal option.

At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics, Laser Hair Removal is our specialty. We are one of the very first and longest standing laser and skin clinics in Melbourne to offer this service. We only use medical grade lasers, not inferior IPL or diode systems like many other clinics in Melbourne. Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics only use the Candela GentleMax Pro system, which is the most advanced and effective laser for hair removal in the world.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST LASER HAIR REMOVAL CLINIC

With so many clinics offering laser hair removal, it can be difficult to figure out which one is the best. Some will only charge you peanuts for laser hair removal, while others will charge you a fair and reasonable price. For the best possible results, laser hair removal needs to be performed every 8 weeks on the body and every 4 weeks on the face. Laser hair removal needs to be performed when the highest percentage of your hair is in the active growth phase. During this time, we treat the hair root attached to your blood supply to destroy the hair.

It’s important to note that some cheap laser hair removal clinics may increase the number of appointments you have, even though you don’t need them. So even though you’re paying less for laser hair removal treatments, you end up paying more, often without the results.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

Laser hair removal is a fast and easy clinical treatment that can be performed on your body areas including:

  • The face,
  • Arms and legs,
  • Chest and back
  • Bikini line and Brazilian

Our Candela GentleMax Pro laser hair removal system can selectively target your coarse, dark hairs without damaging the surrounding areas.

The Candela GentleMax Pro system is a Dual wavelength 1064 nm Nd Yag & 755 nm Alexandrite laser, which can treat a wide range of skin types. Although it can be used for a variety of skin conditions, its main application is for laser hair removal and does so by destroying the hair follicle rather than simply weakening it (which is what happens with other hair removal methods such as waxing and IPL/Diode treatments). Fast, effective and safe results mean that permanent hair removal is achievable using our world-class lasers.

We have built our reputation as a result of our client satisfaction and our therapists superior care. Our experience is unparalleled having performed over 3 million successful treatments since 2005. All of our therapists and qualified dermal therapists are laser safety and Syneron Candela certified. When you get laser hair removal treatments with us you get peace of mind that are in safe and experienced hands. If you want to learn more, please read our laser hair removal FAQ.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?

Before your appointment you’ll need to freshly shave the treatment area. To ensure the hair is at the skin surface, it’s important not to bleach, wax or pluck this area. We strongly recommend you don’t sunbathe for 4 weeks before your treatment or during your treatments.

WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT LIKE?

When you have laser hair removal treatment, it will feel like you’re having a rubber band snapped against your skin. The Candela GentleMax Pro system fires a cooling agent immediately before the laser fires heat to the treatment area.

During your laser hair removal appointment you’ll need to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes. Our highly trained and experienced therapists move the handpiece over your treatment areas. The amount of time the laser hair removal treatment takes will depend on the size of the area being treated with times ranging from 10 minutes to 1 hour.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?

After your treatment you may experience slight redness and swelling for up to 2 days. Your treated hair will fall out over the next few weeks. Sometimes it will appear as if the treated hair is growing back, however this is only the follicle shedding the dead hair.

THE VC DERMAL CLINIC LASER HAIR REMOVAL DIFFERENCE

The best laser hair removal treatment happens when temperatures reach at least 70 degrees to destroy the hair follicle. We are 100% committed to your wellbeing and take the time and care to treat you at this temperature without any adverse side effects. Our highly trained and experienced therapists take care to ensure all treatment areas are covered so you don’t get any missed patches.

It’s important to note that if your laser hair removal treatment isn’t at the right setting, you risk being burnt or may have patches where hair grows back lighter and finer. The best laser hair removal treatment will destroy the hair, not damage it.
