Laser Hair Removal treatments have gained popularity among our clients who like to have a smooth, hair-free bikini line all year round, and it’s become one of our most requested laser treatments. Our experienced staff perform this treatment daily and will quickly put you at ease.
After all, you have nothing to lose but unsightly hair.
Our specially trained laser technicians use advanced, medical grade lasers to focus a pulse of laser light onto the areas where you want to remove the hair. The laser works at a specific wavelength which is attracted to the melanin in the hair. The melanin becomes like a target for the laser energy which is absorbed by the hairs at the hair follicle and converts to heat.
Once in the follicle, the heat converted from the laser destroys the cells which form the hair. Destruction of the hair follicle means that new hair is unable to grow. The process is called Photothermolysis, which simply means converting light energy into heat.
Laser hair removal can be used on people of all ages, whether you’re male, female or you have dark or light skin. However, the final result will depend on the colour and thickness of your hair, darker and thicker hairs respond best. As the laser energy requires melanin as a target, if there is no target (blond or grey hair) there will be no conversion of heat in the follicle.
Of course, the treatment is not just restricted to your bikini line; it’s also very effective on the legs, arms, underarms and even for unwanted facial hair.
If you’re a little worried about subjecting your sensitive areas to laser, there’s no need to worry.
The majority of people who’ve had the treatment say that it’s not as painful as waxing, with many comparing it to the sensation of having a small elastic band snapped against the skin. Furthermore, today’s modern lasers are used in combination with cooling mechanisms to cool the skin on contact, protecting it and making the treatment more comfortable.
Laser Hair Removal is a fast alternative to other traditional hair removal treatments. As the bikini line is a relatively small area, your treatment is likely to take around 5 minutes, while a full Brazilian treatment will take 10 minutes or so. There’s no downtime after the treatment, although you may experience a slight redness of the area for a couple of hours.
The amount of treatments you will need will depend on your hair type and skin colour. We recommend that you undergo treatments every 6-8 weeks, for a minimum of 6 treatments. From the first treatment you’ll not only notice a reduction in the amount of hair, but you’ll also notice that ingrown hairs and skin irritation is significantly reduced.
In between treatments we recommend that you refrain from waxing or plucking any hairs that regrow, as without hair in the follicle there will be no target for the laser energy. However, there is no need for you to experience unwanted hair between laser appointments as you can shave, trim or use depilatory creams to keep your skin hair free throughout the entire treatment program.
Rest assured that bikini Laser Hair Removal is completely safe. However, if you’ve decided to take the plunge and invest in a course of laser treatments for your bikini line, it makes sense to use a laser clinic that uses world class equipment and whose technicians have all the qualifications, skills and experience to deliver excellent results.
While laser hair removal is safe in the hands of qualified professionals, if administered incorrectly it can prove to be dangerous.
Australian Laser & Skin Clinics are one of Melbourne’s leading and most trusted Laser Hair Removal clinics, and we only use TGA and FDA approved Class 4 medical grade lasers and machinery to ensure the safest and best results.
