LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Fibroblast Skin and Beauty
ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser Hair Removal uses a laser light which is emitted and absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The energy light is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles that produce hair. This then inhibits or delays future hair growth.
The face normally grows in 4-week cycles, whereas the legs go through a longer cycle of new hair growth every 8-10 weeks. Which is why it is necessary to continue hair removal for several sessions and months.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL?

WHAT LASER MACHINE IS USED AND DOES IT TREAT ALL SKIN TYPES?
We use a TGA approved medical grade Candela YAG, which treats all skin types, as long as the colour of the hair is darker than the colour of the skin. We cannot treat grey, pale red or white hair.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY SERVICE?
During the procedure, you will discuss your desired treatment area. This consultation will be roughly 10-15 minutes, as you will also need to fill in the consultation from. The actual treatment on the skin can take about 10 minutes -2 hours, depending on the size of the area and if more than one area is being treated. Aftercare will be applied on the skin.

Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between the Buttocks and Peri-Anal treatment areas?
The Buttocks are the whole bum cheek region and the Peri-Anal is the anus area.
Can I have my treatment when I am menstruating?
Yes - you can still have laser hair removal treatment while on your period. We advise you to wear a tampon if you would like to have the Brazilian area treated.
Will all the treated hair be removed in one treatment?
No, each Laser Hair Removal treatment provides a 10%-15% hair reduction. It's important to complete the initial course of 8-10 treatments and at consistent intervals for optimal results. We recommend a series of 8-10 treatments done at monthly intervals and maintenance treatments every 2-3 months for permanent hair reduction. You can choose to extend the intervals if you prefer to have a minimal reduction.
How often do I need to get Laser Hair Removal?
Do you offer numbing for Laser Hair Removal?
Unfortunately, topical numbing creams are not safe nor effective when doing Laser Hair Removal. The sensation you feel in treatment is not felt on the skin, but in the follicle of the hair. Unfortunately numbing cream cannot penetrate deep enough to minimise the discomfort that may be felt at the follicle. Please ensure that no occlusive creams are present in the treatment areas when undergoing laser hair removal treatments.
Do hair supplements affect my treatment results?
Yes - hair supplements can affect your treatment progress as they can stimulate hair growth. We recommend to not consume hair supplements during the treatment course.
Can I have Laser Hair Removal if I am on certain medications?
Certain medications can cause photo-sensitivity to the skin and this may affect the skin's reaction to the treatment. These medications are but not limited to oral and topical vitamin A's, antibiotics, and certain anti-depressants. It is best to speak with your medical professional and obtain medical clearance. After obtaining medical clearance, we are able to test patch you with the laser to determine it is safe to commence treatment.
What skin tones can get Laser Hair Removal?
We treat all skin tones with our medical grade Candela YAG Laser. Our Laser technicians use the Fitzpatrick Classification scale to determine your skin tone at the consultation and select the most suitable machine for your laser hair removal treatment.
Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
One of the benefits of Laser Hair Removal is that the treatment is virtually painless, especially compared to waxing. Each pulse lasts less than a second, producing a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a rubber band snap on the skin. We use an advanced Cyrogen cooling machine in conjunction with our laser device to reduce the heat sensation on the skin and minimise any discomfort.
Can I still get Laser Hair Removal if I am pregnant?
Unfortunately, you cannot do the treatment if you are pregnant. Lactating mothers are okay to do the treatment however.
What body hair colour can be treated with Laser Hair Removal?
Unfortunately, we can not treat blonde, grey/white, and some types of red hair with our Laser Hair Removal treatment. The light of the laser is only attracted to the melanin (pigment) of the hair hence these hair colours cannot be treated.
What Laser Hair Removal machine do you use?
We use the world's leading Laser Hair Removal technology. Medical-grade, Candela YAG. This technology is TGA approved. Our advanced cooling is used in all laser treatments to cool your skin during your treatment to minimise any discomfort.
What is included in a Brazilian?
The Brazilian includes the full-frontal pubic area and bikini line except for the anus area.
What does the Beard Sculpting include?
Our Beard Sculpting treatment includes the beard line and may include the cheek and underneath the jawline depending on how far the beard extends to.
Can I get Laser Hair Removal if I have Epilepsy?
No we cannot treat someone who is epileptic, as there is a laser light beam. We also offer various options of protective eyewear to ensure your safety at all times during treatment.
Can I have Laser Hair Removal over the top of tattoos?
No, unfortunately we cannot treat over tattoos with our laser. We can treat around the tattooed areas with a gap of 3cm.
What is included in a Full Body Laser Hair Removal treatment?
The Full Body Laser Hair Removal Treatment covers every area of the body, except the head, under the eyebrows and the eye area.
Are there side effects from Laser Hair Removal?
Temporary side effects may include: redness, itchy skin, mild follicle swelling, irritation on treatment areas. All of which are normal post Laser Hair Removal treatment. It is important to follow the correct prep and aftercare to receive maximum results with minimal side effects to the treatment.
Can I still get Laser Hair Removal if I am on birth control?
Yes - our Laser Hair Removal treatment is safe for individuals on birth control including oral contraceptive pills and IUD.
Is Laser Hair Removal permanent?
Laser hair removal has fast become one of the most effective options for permanent hair reduction. No laser clinic can claim 100% hair removal, as some hair will always strive to grow back. Re-growth can be affected by hormones and other biological factors which can vary from person to person.
Can it get rid of ingrown hair?
Laser can decrease the chance of experiencing ingrown hairs. When there is no hair in the follicle, there is less chance of an ingrown hair occurring.
