Hair Removal Adelaide

Whether you simply want to neaten your bikini line or you have a problem with embarrassing facial hair, lasers now offer fast, affordable treatment with exceptional long-term results. According to Dr Kerry, lasers have put all other methods of hair removal where they belong: in the past!

There are many different lasers that can be used to remove hair — and some lasers do a better job than others. That’s why it’s important to understand how lasers work and what type of laser will produce the best results for you.

When a laser is used for hair removal, the pigment or melanin in your hair follicles absorbs the light and converts it to heat. The heat destroys or damages the selected hair shaft and follicle. This action stops or greatly restricts your hair’s growth. A special cooling system is used with the laser to make sure it doesn’t overheat or damage the surrounding skin.

Research and our experience show that people generally have a 90 percent decrease in hair after six to nine treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal Adelaide

Q: What are lasers?

Lasers are machines that send out light in a certain wavelength. Different lasers are suitable for different types of treatments because they use a source (such as a ruby crystal or carbon dioxide) that creates a specific wavelength.

Q: What is the ideal laser to remove hair?

A laser purposely designed for removing hair will have a wavelength of 810 nanometres. Scientific documentation collected over the past 25 years has clearly shown that 810 nanometres specifically targets the melanin in hair and so destroys the hair follicle, while minimising damage to surrounding tissue.

One laser that currently offers high power, combined with this ideal wavelength, is the Light Sheer Diode Laser. This is the laser that Medical Cosmetic Centre Adelaide Laser Clinic uses for all hair removal treatments.

Q: What type of hair can be removed with lasers?

New technology is making it possible to remove practically all types and colours of hair from the entire body and face in both women and men.

People regularly have hair removed from their upper lip, chin, underarms, thighs, bottom, anus, lower legs, chest, nipples, back, arms, bikini line, tummy, eyebrows and scalp hair, especially around the hairline.

Q: How is laser hair removal performed?

Before having any hair removed, you will need to come into the Adelaide laser clinic for a consultation. At this consultation, a technician will assess your skin colour to judge the laser energy required to remove your hair. This will ensure that your hair will respond to laser treatment and that we are using the ideal amount of laser energy for your skin and hair colour.

Q: What will the treatment feel like?

Laser hair removal feels like a pricking sensation on your skin. Some people have compared it to a rubber band flicking against their skin.

Q: How many treatments will I need?

A hair follicle can only be destroyed by a laser while it is in the active growth stage of its life cycle. Hair follicles in the natural resting stage of their cycle will be missed by the first treatment and need to be destroyed during a future treatment.

Most people need a total of six to nine treatments to remove unwanted hair. Each treatment is given about four to six weeks apart.

Q: Are there any side effects from laser hair removal?

By using the 810-nanometre wavelength, the Light Sheer Diode Laser does not penetrate other skin structures (like the water in tissue or the red pigment in blood). This minimises the chance of causing any aging effects on your skin.

The Light Sheer Diode Laser also uses a sophisticated device called a skin scanner, which measures how much energy will be needed to efficiently remove the maximum amount of hair from your skin, with minimal side effects.

After treatment, your skin will feel warm like it is sun burnt. This feeling will disappear within 3-14 hours after your treatment.
