Why is laser hair removal so popular?

A convenient and long-term solution to hair removal: no wonder laser hair removal has soared in popularity over the last decade. And technology is only getting better!

Safe

At Vitality Laser & Skin, our advanced laser systems deliver excellent results without compromising the skin to deliver positive outcomes.

Laser hair removal is performed by our Tertiary Educated Dermal Clinicians.

Non-invasive

Laser hair removal sessions are quick and painless. Most clients experience some very mild discomfort, often likened to a feeling of pinching the skin.

Our technology also includes a cooling feature that helps calm and soothe the skin during your treatment.

There is no downtime following your appointment.

Long lasting

Often touted as permanent, we want to ensure you understand that elements beyond our control, such as hormones or medication, may have an impact on your results.

However, our patients have seen fantastic hair reduction results that renders shaving completely obsolete!

Choosing the right laser hair removal clinic

Your results are only as good as the qualified professional you choose.

Unfortunately, our industry is unregulated, which means over the years we have seen a number of smaller boutiques popping up to saturate the market.

While these smaller clinics offer the same laser treatments, they are often using inferior, cheaper, and less effective machinery.

Not only can this result in unsatisfactory results, but concerningly, it can increase the risk of damage or harm to your skin, such as burns.

That’s why it’s critical you choose a laser clinic with proven experience, with knowledgeable and skillful professionals who offer patient education and support alongside your treatment.

Vitality is a proud member of the Australian Society of Dermal Clinicians (ASDC).

How to prepare for your first laser hair removal appointment

Visiting us for the first time? We can’t wait to welcome you!

There are a few steps we’ll ask you to follow in the lead-up to your first appointment:

  • Stop waxing or plucking the treatment area 4-6 weeks before your appointment
  • Shave the area to be treated 24 hours before your appointment
  • ​​We also advise you to avoid moisturisers, perfumes, and deodorants the day leading up to your appointment
  • No tanning creams or sun exposure for 4 weeks as this can result in complications

If you’ve got any questions or concerns in the days or weeks before your appointment, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our skin clinic in Geelong.

No question is too trivial, and it’s our goal to ensure you feel confident and comfortable before, during, and after your treatment.

What happens if you don’t shave before laser hair removal?

We ask you to stop waxing or plucking the area, as these two particular hair removal techniques remove the hair from the root; however we want the root to remain – this is what the laser targets.

This is why we ask you to shave the area: shaving removes surface-level hair but leaves the root; this ensures optimal laser hair removal results.

If you don’t shave before your appointment, the laser can singe the hair and can even cause burns to your skin.

Performing laser treatment on skin that has not been shaved can also compromise your results.

Does laser hair removal have any other benefits?

Beyond smooth and silky skin, laser hair removal has a few subsequent benefits:

Say bye-bye to ingrown hairs

One of the most frustrating parts of shaving are those stubborn ingrown hairs. No more painful plucking or irritation; just smooth, silky skin.

No more razor bumps or stubble

Shaving your legs only to feel stubble the very next day is a thing of the past!

Low maintenance

Following your initial laser treatments, there is virtually zero maintenance. You may be interested in touch-up sessions, but these are few and far between; often less than once a year.

Save time

We’ve all been there: spent an extra 10 minutes in the shower, carefully shaving our legs only to emerge and find we’ve missed a spot or cut ourselves. Save time in the long-run with flawless laser hair removal.
