Laser hair removal is fast becoming the most popular method of hair removal. So it’s no wonder there are many clinics and beauty salons cropping up all over Melbourne claiming to provide the best laser hair removal service and the best quality machines.
Every week there is a new special laser hair removal deal offered to Melbournians on websites such as Scoopons, Living Social and Spreets, but how do you know which one to choose? How do you know that they are using the highest quality machinery? How do you know that they will give the permanent results that you seek, along with a safe treatment?
Before choosing the right Melbourne Laser Hair Removal company, its best to ask the following questions to see if they’re the right fit for you.
What kind of Laser does the company use?
The kind of laser a company uses is very important as there are a lot of clinics and salons that claim to use Medical Grade Lasers when they’re actually using beauty grade or inferior IPL machines that don’t perform the same permanent results a Medical Grade Laser would.
In place of active products a very mild cleanser and barrier cream is recommended to keep your skin clean and soothe any resultant dry skin and flakiness. We can advise on the best kinds of cleansers, moisturisers and healing products to use to avoid irritation.

At the Australian Laser and Skin Clinic all of our machines are Class 4 Medical Grade Laser, Candela GentleLase Machines. This is the highest quality hair removal laser, which treats quickly, comfortably and effectively and features a Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD™) to maximize patient safety and comfort.

How many treatments will I need?
You will know what kind of machinery a company uses by the amount of treatments offered.
Beauty grade IPL Hair Removal- Clients need ongoing treatments which will happen every 4-5 weeks. Beauty Grade IPL machines do not offer permanent results. They only offer permanent hair reduction. They will only damage the hair follicle which will cause finer hair growth which will be harder to treat.
Medical Grade Laser Hair Removal – With our Class 4 Medical Grade Lasers clients will only need between 4-8 treatments, every 8- 10 weeks depending on the area of the body being treated. These lasers destroy the hair follicle completely and offer permanent hair removal.
Am I a suitable candidate?
Before considering any laser hair removal you have to make sure that you are suitable for treatment and that the company you choose for your laser hair removal asks you the right questions! Make sure they ask about your skin tone and hair colour.

Suitable candidates include:

  • Fairer skin and darker hair ( on the areas wishing to be treated on the body)
  • Grey, white and blonde body hair does not respond to laser hair removal and you will not see any success, as there is no pigment present in the hair for the laser to be attracted to.
