What is Laser Hair Removal?
Unwanted body or facial hair affects millions of men and women. Changing lifestyles mean that a growing number of men are seeking treatment to avoide the embarrassment of excess hair. A variety of means have been used to remove unwanted body hair such as waxing, plucking, shaving, electrolysis and depilatory creams have been used to remove unwanted body hair. however these provide only temporary relief.
The energy of the laser beam is absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair. This causes permanent damage to the hair and surrounding structures, creating permanent hair removal effect. Hair follicles with high melanin content during this laser treatment, absorb more energy, and are thus more easily destroyed. That is why this procedure is more effective on dark, coarse hair.

We are one of the few laser clinics in Australia, specialized in hair removal. By combining these great technologies, we can achieve the best and most permanent hair reduction results in the shortest time for you.
Lighter hair can still be treated, but the power delivered by the laser must be increased. White hair lacks melanin, and cannot be affected by the laser. Since the energy of the laser is absorbed by melanin, the surface of the skin is susceptible to damage, especially in patients with dark or tanned skin.If you consider treating your light blonde or red hairs please visit " Depilar system" page which is on the next page within the hair removal category.
How Laser Hair Removal Works?
The LightSheer™ Diode Laser and IPL™ Multilux systems use a long duration of pulses to remove hair and impair hair regrowth. Usually, a topical cooling gel is applied. Each pulse of the laser affects 75-100 hair follicles at the fraction of a second. When a Diode laser pulse is delivered to the hair, you may feel a mild sting or pinch similar to the snap of a rubber band. Most of the hair dissolves immediately, and the rest will fall out within a week or two.
