What is Laser Hair Removal and how does it work?
Hair removal lasers use safe low-energy settings to gently reduce unwanted hair.
Lasers systems actually permanently remove the hair. They kill the unwanted growing hair by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle; disabling the hair from further growth.
Because these systems scan the skin rather than treating one hair at a time, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms,and legs. Best of all, Aesthetica’s advanced treatments for laser hair removal in Melbourne are safe, fast, gentle and effective technology for hair removal.

What areas can be treated with this process?
Our treatments include all areas of the body, including face, arms, backs, bikini lines and brazilians.
What if I have dark skin?
Hair removal lasers work by targeting the melanin. By adjusting the power settings on our lasers we can focus on the melanin in the hair and not the melanin in the skin. By lowering the power settings we can even treat patients with dark skin successfully.
What happens during my Laser Hair Removal treatment in Armadale?
Your treatment is normally done with you lying down wearing goggles to protect your eyes as a precaution.
First, we cleanse the area to be treated.
Then the area is scanned with the laser handpiece. The light energy passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy vaporizes the carbon particles in the follicle, debilitating hair growth.
Treatments can last from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the size of the area being treated.
What should I do after my treatment?
After your treatment, the area is cleansed and you can return to your normal activities immediately. Your Dermal Clinician may recommend that you use a specially formulated skin care product line or prescribe a skin care regime especially formulated for your skin type after laser treatments. The use of sunscreen is recommended for 48 hours on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
How many Laser Hair Removal treatments will I need?
Usually four to eight treatments for laser hair removal in Melbourne are sufficient; however, your hair grows in cycles and many factors influence its growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair’s location, thickness and resilience.
The number of treatments you may require for optimal long term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair’s growth cycle.
Laser and light systems treat the hair follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results. Most patients like us to continue treatment until the hair is gone.
