Have you ever questioned why you would need ten treatment sessions for hair removal? Subjecting your skin to a high frequency of hair removal treatments can not only be damaging to your skin, but can be a drain on your pocket and your time.
At Detail Smoother Skin Clinic, we use the latest technology for superior laser hair removal in Sydney. In this article, we answer the questions we get asked the most.
Laser Hair Removal FAQ’s Answered
How Long Does It Take & How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Usually, 3 sessions are required, 6 weeks apart to achieve 80% hair reduction. This is a fraction of the number of sessions when compared to competitors who sell a package of 10+ treatments – seems cheap per session but the cost quickly adds up for unnecessary treatments.
Treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair color and type, body area and skin tone.
Is Laser The Same As IPL?
No. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is not a laser. IPL uses light to target the colour in the hair, heating the hair follicle enough to cause damage. As your hair rotates through growth phases, IPL needs to be performed over multiple sessions to treat the hair follicle at the right stage. In addition, IPL uses multiple wavelengths with only a fraction of the energy being effective, therefore all of the ‘scattered’ energy is absorbed into your skin where it’s not needed.
The GentleMax Pro laser results in effective hair removal and is suitable for use on all skin types. Combining 755nm Alexandrite laser with an equally powerful 1064nm Nd:YAG laser, the GentleMax Pro is the fastest dual wavelength hair removal laser available.
Where Can I Have Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal with the GentleMax Pro is safe to use practically anywhere on your body. The best way to get the information you need to to meet with one of our experienced clinicians to discuss your expectations.
Does It Hurt?
We use a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying a cooling burst of cryogen just milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.

Is It Safe?
