LASER HAIR REMOVAL
The Diode Laser applicator has been designed in response to the high demand for the removal of
unwanted hair in all body areas. It offers the ability to treat large areas fast with high efficancy and
Few short sessions, usually 5-6, are required in order to permanently remove hair, with just a few
touch ups that may be required over time.
Diode Laser hair removal is one of the most comfortable procedures for permanent hair removal.
A slight discomfort may be sensed as the laser handpiece passes over the treatment areas but no
topical anesthetics are necessary for this procedure.
The Diode applicator is also considered the "gold-standard" of hair-removal lasers as it can be used to treat all skin types effectively and with the fewest number of treatments. No crossing over the same areas is required as with other hair removal procedures, making the treatment time even shorter.

Q: Who is suitable for laser hair removal?
A: Laser hair removal achieves the best results for people with fairer skin and darker hair, however our laser technology and laser preparation products allow us to treat a variety of skin and hair types. Laser hair removal is not suited to blonde, red, grey or white hair.
Q: What Laser do you use?
A: We ensure our client’s total satisfaction by using the medical grade XLASE Plus laser, the world’s most effective laser for hair removal. Treatments are quick, comfortable and virtually pain free. Providing you effeciancy & giving instant results.
Q: How does laser hair removal work?
A: The XLASE Pro produces a near infra light which targets the pigment in the hair follicle, without damaging the surrounding skin tissue. This light then generates heat within the hair follicle to cause trauma to the connection between the follicle and its blood supply destroying the hair. This must be done in the active growth stage only.
Q: Is laser hair removal permanant?
A: No lasers can claim to have achieved 100% permanent hair removal. However, FDA/TGA Approved Medical Grade Lasers can, in most cases, achieve permanent hair “reduction” with approximately a 70% – 90% reduction in hair growth.
These results are dependent on the individual and can be influenced by such things as skin type, hair colour, and hormones. Permanent hair reduction may not be achieved by all clients, the vast majority of these clients are females with fine facial hair or members of both sexes experiencing varying levels of hormonal activity such as puberty, pregnancy or menopause.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: The number of treatments can vary, dependant on the individual and can be influenced by skin type, hair colour, medications, and hormones.
Depending on the area being treated, a course of 8 – 10 treatments is generally required to achieve the most significant hair reduction results. Your technician will make a recommendation of the number of treatments you require as part of your complimentary consultation and treatment planning session.
Q: How often do i need to be treated?
A: As hair growth is cyclical, it is recommended that a treatment is completed every 3 – 6 weeks for facial areas and every 6-10 weeks for body areas, until the entire course is completed. However your technician will monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan if required.
We recommend clients adhere to their treatment plan, as a clients who miss an appointment or who leave a long period of time between treatments will not achieve optimum results.
Q: Can i go in the sun?
A: The laser specifically targets the pigment within the hair follicle. Consequently, it is important not to affect the skins pigmentation in anyway before or after your laser treatments. Sun exposure can increase the risk of adverse reaction including burning, blistering and post inflammatory hyper or hypo pigmentation in some cases these reactions can be permanent and prevent you from achieving your ideal results.
Please avoid sun exposure or solariums 48hours prior to your first treatment and continue to avoid exposure to the treatment area throughout your entire treatment plan. Be sure to also apply sunscreen hourly if you are exposed to direct sunlight.
It is also recommended not to use any form of artificial tanning products prior to your treatment, this includes fake tan sprays or lotions and bronzing powders or creams. As these products alter your natural skin colour they must be completely removed from the treatment area prior to your appointment.
Q: What if im on medication?
A: There are only a few medications that could possibly affect the treatments of laser hair removal. These medications include Roaccutane and Retin-A as both of these medications can alter the integrity of an individual’s skin. It is recommended that Roaccutane be ceased 6 months prior to treatment and topical Retin-A at least 2 – 4 weeks prior to treatment.
Some medications may have blood thinning or photo-sensitising properties which can increase the risk of an adverse reaction, so it is important to bring along a comprehensive list of any medications or supplements you are on to discuss with your technician prior to treatment.
