Frequently Asked Questions

Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?

There is minimal discomfort associated with our medical grade hair removal laser. Our gold standard medical lasers were designed with comfort in mind and have an in built cooling system which significantly reduces the discomfort and minimises redness post treatment.

Do I need to do anything before Laser Hair Removal?

To ensure the best possible results

  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure for two weeks pre-treatment
  • Ensure no fake tan is present
  • Do not wax/pluck area for four weeks prior to treatment
  • Exfoliate and shave area to be lasered 12-24 hours pre-treatment

I have dark skin can I use Laser Hair Removal?

We treat can treat all skin types with our laser platforms. Our Icon Laser platform has the world’s only SkinTel melanin reader which determines your exact level of skin pigmentation. This inputs into our laser to provide us with settings specific to your skin. This way we optimise results, while decreasing the risk of side effects.

Can I use Laser Hair Removal over the top of a Tattoo?Post Care Treatment

No. Unfortunately we do not recommend using Laser hair Removal over any tattoos as some of the ink in the tattoo may be discoloured.

Post Care Treatment

  • Cold packs may be applied following treatment to reduce redness, swelling and discomfort. The use of chemical cold packs is not recommended
  • Swimming, hot baths and saunas should be avoided for 24 hours following laser treatment, as the treated area of skin may still be sensitive
  • Sun exposure should be minimised for at least two weeks following treatment
  • SPF 50+ sun protection should be applied if sun exposure is unavoidable
  • Following treatment, it is advised that no makeup be applied to a treatment site for at least 12 hours

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
