Permanent Hair Reduction with Laser
WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser Hair Removal can reduce hair, with long term, permanent results.
In order to remove unwanted hairs, and prevent them from regrowing, we utilise Medical Grade Laser and IPL technologies, to target the pigment within the hair. The darker the pigment of the hair, the more effective the treatment, Therefore, blonde, grey or auburn hairs will not work with Laser and IPL removal. Instead, book a free consultation for Electrolysis hair removal with our clinics.
The devices we use, have a specific wavelength of light, to perfectly target the pigment, but also penetrate to the depth of the hair root, making them the most effective devices on the market. They utilise cooling technology, to protect the surrounding skin, and make the treatment extremely comfortable.
During a treatment, hairs within the growing phase, known as Anagen, will be destroyed, but as we only ever have roughly 20% of hairs in this phase, we need to perform multiple treatments to achieve the desired results. Usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart, with most people achieving their hair loss requirements in between 4-12 sessions. We recommend maintenance sessions to be performed every 12 months after desired result is achieved.
Here at Facial Attraction, we use Candela GentleLase Lasers and Palomar IPL Devices. Both using 755nm Alexandrite wavelengths, with added cooling technology incorporated for safety and comfortability.
CONSULTATION AND TEST PATCH:
We pride ourselves on offering the safest treatments in Victoria, and therefore, we always perform a full consultation with a FREE test patch, to ensure you are suitable for the treatment. During this consultation, you will read over and complete our consultation and consent forms, and your clinician will explain the treatment in detail. We will determine your suitability, and discuss your options, possible causes of the excess hair, medical conditions and determine the best course of action for you.
We constantly gain new clients from competitor clinics, because no consultation was performed, and unwanted side effects have occurred. By performing the consultation and test patch, we can ensure we provide the best possible treatment for you. Usually this booking takes about 30 minutes to complete, and you have the opportunity to have all of your questions answered as well. Then you may go home and make an informed decision about choosing Facial Attraction to perform your treatments. We are so confident that we are the best, that we encourage our clientele to go for multiple consultations, as this will give you the opportunity to see exactly why we are the #1 Laser provider for Victoria.
BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT:
Hair should not be plucked or waxed for at least 2 weeks prior to your treatment. The root of the hair must be present, in order for the treatment to be effective. The hair must however, be shaven the day before your treatment. This eliminates the chance of any laser energy being absorbed by the hair outside of the skin, which can cause an ineffective treatment.
You must NOT sunbathe, naturally tan or fake tan for 2 weeks prior to your treatment. Darkening of the skin will cause either an ineffective treatment, or can potentially lead to side effects such as burning. This is because the laser energy s attracted to pigment, so if all the energy is attracted to fake tan for example, the epidermal layers will burn, and the hair will receive no heat.
The area must be free from cosmetics, sunscreen and deodorant. Your clinician will provide you with cleansing wipes to remove these products if required.
If you have a history of cold sores, and are having the upper lip treated, you may wish to begin appropriate anti-viral treatment prior to commencing laser therapy.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
Due to our cooling technology incorporated into the Laser and IPL devices, this is a very comfortable treatment. You can feel a slight flicking sensation which can be warm on the skin. You and your therapist will both wear appropriate safety glasses during the treatment, and the skin afterwards may appear temporarily red, with some clients’ experience temporary swelling also.
