Laser Hair Reduction

Laser hair removal treatments for freedom from unwanted body hair

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Laser Hair Removal is the most effective and efficient way to experience permanent hair reduction. We use the latest in laser hair removal technology to bring you a permanent reduction of unwanted hair in any of your body areas. Permanent hair reduction is guaranteed to save you time and money, allow you to avoid the pain from ingrown hairs and waxing, and suits a range of skin types from sensitive to stubborn.

You'll be running to throw out your razors and wax strips after just one laser hair removal session with Viable Changes.

Hair reduction through IPL laser hair removal treatment works through a laser emitting light onto the skin and hairs on the treatment area. When the skin senses these pulses of laser light, the melanin of the skin absorbs the energy and converts the energy to heat, damaging the hair follicles and preventing further hair growth. The process must be performed by a qualified technician and can take up to 8 sessions to complete but results may be seen as early as the first treatment. Laser hair removal is ultimately a harmless, reliable, and cost-effective solution to removing unwanted body hair and ensuring it doesn't grow back. Our medical-grade lasers are safe for any skin type and our qualified and educated technicians can work with a range of skin tones to achieve tailor-made results.

Hair reduction through IPL laser treatments is the longest-lasting solution to removing unwanted body hair yet requires maintenance to be a permanent solution.

Depending on the area of the body, your hair type, and the pigment in the hair, laser treatments can halt the growth phase of your hairs semi-permanently, with maintenance sessions required once or twice a year after your initial full series of treatments. Your initial treatment cycle can take up to nine months with treatments every six weeks up to 8 sessions in total. Those with light skin and dark hair commonly experience better results than those with darker skin. This is due to the laser potentially targeting the melanin in darker skin rather than just the colour of the hair follicle. An experienced technician is required to navigate the laser to avoid damaging the skin or causing ingrown hairs and burns.

The hair removal from IPL hair reduction treatments can last from 6 months to a year with no maintenance.

The hair follicles are halted from growth through the heat supplied by the laser during your laser treatment sessions. This dormancy causes the hair to grow much slower than usual and the hair that does grow back to be thinner, lighter, and to cover less of the skin area. The hair follicles are located just under the skin and are easily targeted by the laser with results visible after just one treatment. The rate at which your hair grows in between treatments depends on the phase of growth the hair was in during your last treatment. The laser is most effective when it can target the hair follicle during its growth period.

Hair removal is suitable and safe for many treatment areas of the body, including the bikini line, facial hair, chest, back, upper lip, the 'snail trail' and shoulders.

Hair removal performed by an experienced and qualified technician should have little to no side effects, and there are some things you can do in the weeks prior to treatment to improve the experience and encourage the best results:

  • Come freshly showered and without oils, creams or skin treatments applied to the area being treated.
  • Shave the area being treated completely before your appointment. Never wax or tweeze before your appointment to ensure the hair follicle is still present for the laser to target.
  • Avoid sun exposure in the days and weeks before your treatments and use SPF daily to protect from UV rays.
  • Avoid products that include retinol or salicylic acid and the treatment areas must be clear of any fake tan.
  • Do not have botox treatments, chemical peels, or microdermabrasion within two weeks prior to your treatment.

After your treatment, it is common to experience some tenderness and swelling, especially in tender areas such as the upper lip or bikini line, but the pain should be no more than that of sunburn. After your laser session, it is integral to take the right steps for post-treatment care, these can include:

  • Use over the counter topical solutions to soothe the areas affected
  • Avoid sun or UV exposure, which can cause permanent pigment damage or changes to the texture of your skin
  • Continue using good quality SPF protection
  • Follow the instructions from your laser specialist if you need oral medications or specific follow up care for your skin type
  • Only apply gentle cleaners and natural lotions to your skin
  • Don't forget to book your next IPL laser treatment within 4-6 weeks of each session
