Laser Hair Removal


Overview of Laser Hair Removal

Rejuvenative was one of the first clinics in Sunshine Coast to introduce laser hair removal to Queensland in 2013. Strict radiation safety laws in WA at the time meant that only doctors could operate class – 4 b lasers. In 2018 Queensland radiation safety council made critical changes to the laser safety laws, allowing non-medical operators to be able to treat skin conditions using medical-grade lasers. This has resulted in a sudden influx of shopping mall-based non-medical laser salons in Queensland.

Rejuvenative is one of the most experienced clinics in Sunshine Coast to offer laser hair removal under medical supervision.

We use the industry gold standard laser hair removal platform, the Lightsheer™Diode Laser. Diode laser is considered the best laser in its class globally to remove unwanted body hair painlessly. Thanks to its extremely large spot size and vaccum suctions technology, it is ideal for treating large areas like the legs and back painlessly.

Alongside Lightsheer Diode™, we also have two other world-renowned laser hair removal platforms, namely Cutera™ XEO and Revlite™Si to tackle almost every type of skin.

At Rejuvwnative, we routinely run special promos on our most popular cosmetic treatments. To take full advantage, follow us on social media;

What medical conditions are associated with excess body hair?

Common medical conditions associated with excess hair growth and related conditions are:

Hirsutism is a medical term for excessive hair growth in women. Hirsutism can be a result of multiple factors such as Polycyctic ovaries (PCOS) and is usually a significant cause of emotional distress and poor self-esteem in those suffering from this disorder.

Hypertrichosis is excessive hair growth over and above the norm based on the age, sex and race of an individual. In contrast to hirsutism, which is excess hair growth in women, Hypertrichosis can develop all over the body or can be isolated to small patches affecting both men and women. Hypertrichosis may be congenital (present at birth) or acquired (arising later in life).

Folliculitis barbae is a type of folliculitis affecting the beard area. It is also known as shaving rash or razor bumps. It is a foreign-body inflammatory reaction surrounding ingrown facial hair, which results from shaving.

Folliculitis barbae occurs more commonly in people who have curly hair because the curl of the hair means that sharp pointed end of a recently shaved hair comes out from the skin and re-enters the skin close by.

After shaving, patients may experience a painful acne-like eruption. The small lesions may be flesh-coloured or red and inflamed. If they become infected, pustules and abscesses may develop.

Is Laser hair removal better than IPL hair removal?

In general, Laser hair removal is considered better than IPL hair removal. However, this depends upon the strength (power) and build quality of these machines. Medical grade IPL platforms such as Lumenis M22™ or Sciton BBL™deliver better results than any non-medical grade Laser platform.

How many sessions of Laser hair removal treatments do I need? Are the results permanent?

This varies from person to person. On average, most patients need anywhere between four to eight laser treatments, four to six weeks apart, for upto 95% reduction in hair production.

Laser hair removal results are not permanent no matter what laser platform is used. Human body has the ability to regenerate new hair follicles over a period of time and this can not be stopped. We recommend that patients should come back for touch-up treatments when needed every few months after their inital laser hair removal course.

How Much Does It Cost?

In Sunshine Coast, all Laser hair removal treatments are done by our highly experienced dermal clinicians under direct medical supervision of our doctors. Pricing starts from $50 per treatment area per session for small area.
