Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the most effective method of permanently reducing unwanted hair and is faster and less painful than other traditional techniques such as waxing.
Laser hair removal treats dark coarse hair on any part of the body, and reduces painful, unattractive ingrown hairs in both men and women.
Candela GentleLase Laser
Technology for permanently reducing hair growth has advanced significantly in recent years. So if you are seeking IPL laser hair removal in Sydney, Infinity Skin Clinic in Mosman can offer a yet more advanced, safe and effective hair removal system. We use a Candela GentleLase (Alexandrite) Laser, which utilises the most cutting edge hair removal technology available today.
The Candela GentleLase Laser emits an intense beam of light via a handheld piece. The skin absorbs this light and converts it to heat. This heat is in turn absorbed by the targeted hair follicles, leaving nearby skin tissue unaltered. This highly concentrated and highly targeted laser beam is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. The temperature in the follicle rises enough to destroy the follicle structure and prevent regrowth.
How is the Candela GentleLase Laser superior? It utilises so-called coherent light, which is a beam of photons that does not spread or diffuse. This means that it accurately targets the hair follicle with uniform intensity. On the other hand, Intense Pulsed Light or IPL laser hair removal systems emit photons of varying light frequencies that are prone to diffuse and not reach the hair follicle with consistent intensity, so are less effective at eliminating hair growth.
As well as treating a larger spot size and thereby accelerating the duration of the treatment and being suitable for all skin types, Candela GentleLase uses a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™). This device delivers a spray of cooling cryogen a fraction of a second before the delivery of the laser pulse, which ensures the skin remains comfortable during treatment.
Cycles and Treatments
Hair grows in cycles. The most effective treatment occurs within the hair’s active growth phase. Given that only 20-30% of hairs in any area are in the active growth phase at one time, several treatments are necessary.
On average four to six treatments are necessary, spaced six weeks apart*. Once you begin your laser hair removal treatments, using depilatory wax or plucking is not recommended because pulling the hair from the follicle works against the principles of laser removal. However you can shave to achieve a hair-free appearance in between laser treatments.
