What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a safe method for long-term reduction of unwanted hair that involves precisely targeting the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding epidermis.

The DIODE laser we use is not only the latest in technology, but also represents a new way to approach the problem with safe and excellent aesthetic results. This device is designed to remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort and more reliability.

What Should I Expect During Laser Hair Removal?

The day before your laser treatment for hair removal, the entire area must be shaved. This is because laser energy travels more effectively when the follicles are short. The hair should be coarse, and black or dark brown in colour. White, blonde, and very fine hair cannot be removed with laser.

During the procedure, a layer of cold gel is applied. The wavelength, pulse width, and the energy level is adjusted based on your skin type and hair density. The laser is then activated and glided over the treatment site. There will be a brief sharp sensation as the hair is destroyed.

After the treatment, the hair normally remains intact and will start to shed a few weeks later. After this, there should be a hair-free period. For optimal results, we usually recommend multiple sessions.

How Does It Work?

The DIODE laser targets melanin within hair follicles using precisely concentrated light and heat. This method damages the follicles and inhibits future hair growth. For the treatment to be effective, the follicles must be targeted in the correct phase of hair growth.

Hair has 3 growth stages – Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. Anagen is the active phase of hair growth when there is abundant melanin. This is the optimal phase for the hair to be targeted with laser removal. Catagen is the growing phase of the hair, while Telogen is the dormant phase of the hair. Laser treatments done during these other phases may not effectively destroy the hair bulb. This is another reason why multiple sessions are required for effective laser treatment for hair removal.

Our laser hair removal clinic in Bayside recommends 7-10 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart to notice a considerable percentage of hair reduction.

The hair usually remains intact after the treatment and will begin to shed a few weeks later. After this phase, there should be a hair-free period. The next growth of hair that was dormant (Catagen phase) beneath the skin during the initial treatment will begin to surface a few weeks later. The treatment can be repeated once there is enough hair on the surface. The process continued until the desired result is achieved. Our laser hair removal clinic in Bayside recommends around 7-10 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results.
