Laser Hair Removal Geelong
Research has shown that laser hair removal is the most common non-surgical procedure performed in a clinical environment Australia wide. Laser hair removal is a fast and effective way to reduce the amount of unwanted hair on the face and body. As a result, the days of shaving and waxing are becoming a thing of the past.
What does the CRC offer for the removal of unwanted hair?
Here at the CRC we use medical grade lasers that are suitable for every skin type.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
Laser hair removal is based on the principle of laser light absorption that penetrates down the hair to the follicle, absorbing the dark pigment seen in the hair. This triggers a thermal response that damages the hair follicle and reduces its overall production; leaving the sparing skin unaffected. Within two weeks post treatment, the hair will naturally just fall out.
Laser hair removal is more effective when treating dark pigmented hair on a fair skin. For example, a black car obtains more heat than a white car due to the amount of pigment visible. Laser hair removal works in the same way.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
This treatment is relatively a pain-free experience with no “social” downtime. Each laser device has a zimmer cooler attached to it that projects cold air onto the skin’s surface, minimising the feeling of the absorption of laser heat as well as generating a type of numbing effect on the skin.
Initially, post-treatment the area may appear red and a little bumpy, quite similar to what is seen following a waxing treatment. This can typically last for up to 24 hours however varies for each individual.
How many treatments are usually required for Laser Hair Removal?
In the initial stages of laser hair removal, four to six treatments at an interval of around every four to six weeks are required. This allows for a more permanent reduction of hair growth to be achieved. Factors such as age, hormones, illness or disease can influence why some clients may experience results more quickly than others. Further treatments may be required at longer intervals or for maintenance purposes.
How to prepare for a Laser Hair Removal Treatment:
It is recommended that a client shaves the treatment area one to two days prior to their treatment. This is to minimise discomfort felt through heating the hair to the point of destruction as well as ensuring all the laser energy penetrates down to the base of the follicle for optimal results. In between laser hair removal treatments, a client is able to shave as many times as they wish and this will not alter the overall treatment outcome. However, in between treatments waxing or plucking the treated hairs is not advised due to changing the growing nature of the hair.
