The removal of unwanted hair is an essential part of looking and feeling good about you! Our therapists are very experienced and certified and can offer you advise and a comfortable experience when it comes to the removal of unwanted hair. We only use medical grade candela GentleLase lasers, one of Australia’s best perminate hair reduction systems.
The Candela GentleLASE Laser is a device that uses light energy to selectively heat and destroy the hair follicle without harming the surrounding tissue.
On the day of your laser hair removal treatment please ensure that the area to be treated is free of any moisture, lotions, make-up or deodorant. It is also advised to shave the treating area at least 1-2 days prior to treatment. Sun exposure must be avoided for at least 2 weeks prior to treatment; sunscreen must be used during treatment. This is because the darker your skin the more sensitive you will be. Also, avoid fake tans 2 weeks prior to treatment as this affects the melanin in your skin. To gain maximum results, it is recommended to treat the area every 4-6 weeks.
The skin will appear red-pink and may feel like mild sunburn. This may last for a few hours, or a day or so. Aloe Vera may be applied to help soothe the skin. Occasionally small pimples or small fine crusts can form in a few spots, but generally clear in few days. Darkening or lightening of the skin can occur and is usually mild, this usually resolves within a few weeks or months. In very rare cases it may be permanent. This occurs predominantly in darker skin types.
You may notice some stubble, which is course hair that has been treated and has remained in its place. These hairs usually fall out within 1-2 weeks. Exfoliating regularly also assists the shedding of the hair. It is after your first treatment that you will notice the most difference, as the hair growth afterwards is THINNER and less DENSE from when you begin your treatments.
