There are many reputable laser hair removal clinics in Melbourne, but there are also many amateurs with lasers. The real question is, ‘where not to go for laser hair removal in Melbourne?’.
What you should know about laser hair removal practitioners and their equipment
Laser hair removal is a very specific cosmetic treatment that requires a specific type of laser. The way laser hair removal works is that the laser beam is attracted only to the darker hair shaft within the skin, so the heat from the laser beam doesn’t affect surrounding tissue – it just travels down the darker hair shaft, affecting just the hair follicle itself. This means the hair follicle is damaged and is unable to keep producing hair (what you want), but surrounding skin remains untouched.
Which machine your laser hair removal specialist has and how much experience they have in using this machine really does matter when it comes to being hair-free comfortably. Powerful lasers in untrained or minimally trained hands can be very dangerous, not to mention painful and scarring. Choose your laser hair removal practitioner carefully. At ENRICH, we only have the most experienced laser practitioners working on your body, so you can rest assured that not only do we have the best equipment, but the best practitioners too.
What area are you having hair removed from? It matters.
If you are having hair removed from your legs, arms, back or belly, and do not have scars, moles, birthmarks, freckles or other pigmentation on your skin, you may be able to get away with a less experienced practitioner. When it comes to your delicate areas, or skin that isn’t smooth and blemish-free, however, you will need an expert.
This is because the laser is set to be attracted to dark areas – the hair shaft – which could also include red, brown, black or other darker-than-your-skin areas. These darker areas could include a small freckle, a mole, the darker shade of the labia or scrotum, the anus, or a nipple’s areola.
The way lasers produce energy means those darker areas are going to be sizzled if they are run over with the laser beam, which means ‘burnt’. This will be extremely painful and could leave a scar. A burn from a laser is very unpleasant, especially when the burn occurs on a very delicate area.
