Cairns Skin Centre Laser Hair Treatments

Unwanted hair is one of the most common conditions that causes both men and women to seek cosmetic treatment.

Over the years, many different treatments have been tried to remove hair – shaving, plucking, waxing, and creams just to mention a few. The results are short-lived at best and often uncomfortable. Now there’s a better way. In many cases permanent removal can be achieved in just a few sessions of laser treatment. The treatment is quick and well received.

Laser Hair Treatment Outcomes & Expectations

To get the best results, it is important to select the right type of treatment for your skin and hair type. The colour of your hair, the amount of tanning of your skin and the location of the hair being removed are all factors that determine which treatment is best for you. Talk to one of the doctors or nurses at our laser hair removal clinic for a personal assessment.

 Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I have laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal at Cairns Skin Centre is a comfortable way to effectively remove unwanted hair and, unlike other hair-removal techniques, is permanent.

How many treatments will I need?

Most areas of skin need 3-6 laser hair removal treatments but it depends upon a number of factors, including your hair thickness, your hair’s growth cycle and the area of your skin being treated. Lasers target individual hair follicles that are in the ‘active growth’ phase. Different hair follicles enter the ‘active growth’ phase at different times which is why you need a number of treatments – usually spread out over several weeks.

What’s the difference between laser and IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is used on large areas of your skin and is particularly effective if you have pale skin without any sun tan. Meanwhile, lasers are used for hair removal treatments on any skin colour – even if you have a tan. You usually need fewer treatments with a laser compared to IPL.
