Laser and IPL produce a photo thermal effect on the bulb of the hair. The treatment causes absorption of the laser or IPL light into the pigment contained in the hair bulb. The light energy causes an increase in temperature, converting the light energy into heat energy. The more pigment there is in the bulb, the easier it is for the conversion of heat to reach the optimal temperature. The heat produced destroys the target by denaturing it.
Whilst the follicular temperature reaches 55 to 65 degrees, the epidermis and surrounding tissue remains cooler allowing for specific targeting. With powerful medical grade Lasers and IPL this is achieved efficiently and painlessly.
Integrated cooling systems protect the surface of the skin during treatment. Cooling of the surface is through the use of a cool refrigerated air flowing over the skin during treatment or chill tip contact cooling and ultrasound gel. Specific Laser eyewear or solid eye shields are used to protect the eyes from the IPL or the Laser beam.
Although the shaft of the hair may be carbonized and appear removed, the root of the hair usually takes up to 3 weeks to make its way out. The next cycle of hair is usually treated within 4 to 6 weeks for facial hair or 6 to 8 weeks for body hair. (This is approximate depending on hormonal and individual hair growth.
Hair grows in cycles and has various stages, for this reason a course of treatments is necessary to effectively treat an area. The course of treatments depends on the area to be treated as hairs remain in the active growth stage known as Anagen for different lengths of time on different body areas.
As the Anagen phase is necessary to destroy the hair follicle only a percentage of hairs are treated with each treatment. The number of treatments required to achieve optimal results, will vary according to the hair cycle, with some areas requiring additional or maintenance treatments. A consultation with one of the centre’s dermal clinicians or nurses is important to assess the areas of hair growth and to provide information regarding the proposed laser hair removal treatment program.
Permanent hair removal implies that all the hairs in a given area are removed with no re growth. This can occur in some people over a period of time; however firstly a permanent hair reduction is achieved. The percentage of reduction can be extraordinary however; it greatly depends on the hair texture and the amount of pigment, the colour of pigment in the hair root, the skin colour and the cause of the unwanted hair growth. The hair is generally reduced, replaced by sparser hair, finer and lighter growth. Dark hairs with dark roots are more likely to achieve permanent laser hair removal. Laser hair removal of fine hairs that are less pigmented can achieve further reduction and long term removal with a combination of laser hair removal technologies.
The expert clinicians at Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre will assess the hair growth and discuss the various technologies and recommend an appropriate course of treatment to achieve the best possible results.

Depending on the specialist’s medical assessment, medication may be prescribed to reduce the hormonal aspect of the hair growth problem. Regardless of whether patients decide to take the prescribed medication or not, the laser hair removal reduces the growth. Medication alone is not usually successful in eradicating the current growth. However medication assists in reducing the stimulation for growth and assists in preventing new growth.
New growth is likely in those patients that do not take any medication, however maintenance treatments have been successful in eliminating the need for other forms of hair removal. Patients with PCOS that have had Laser hair removal report that it restores confidence with
Trapped hairs under the skin are known as Ingrown hairs. This condition occurs when hairs are waxed, tweezed or shaven. Ingrown hairs often cause skin pigmentation, inflammation and infection leaving unsightly bumps and discoloured areas. Most people attempt to remove the ingrown hair by squeezing and piercing leaving subsequent scars.
Laser and IPL hair removal treatments solve the Ingrown hair problem by dissolving the trapped hair and by targeting the infection / inflammation. Additionally it actively treats the follicle causing a reduction in hair re-growth.

Electrolysis is useful on hairs that are non-responsive to laser hair removal treatment. This technique is used on hairs that do not contain the appropriate pigments for laser hair removal such as those that exhibit grey, white, red colours particularly where the hair roots are affected.
A fine single use probe is used to slide down the opening of the hair follicle, alongside the unwanted hair. A controlled, pulse of electrical energy is emitted through the probe, destroying the hair growth cells. The loosened hair is gently removed.
A course of treatment is required to remove the unwanted hair.
