Who Are We

After Care Guide

So you've just had your laser hair removal treatment, and now the job of caring for your skin begins. Here are some steps to help you make sure that you get the best results from your treatment:


  1. Immediately after treatment, you make experience slight swelling and redness in the areas treated. This is completely normal and will usually subside within 24 hours. You should apply a cold compress to the treated area to help reduce swelling and discomfort.

  2. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight for two weeks after treatment, as this can increase the risk of skin irritation or discolouration. If you need to go out in the sun, wear protective clothing and apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

  3. Please do not wax or pluck your hair between treatments, as laser hair removal is most effective when done on hairs that are still in the follicle. Shaving is allowed, but use caution and avoid shaving too close to the treated areas, as this can cause irritation or infection.

  4. Avoid makeup, lotions and moisturisers on the treated area for at least 24 hours after treatment. If necessary, gentle cleansing with mild soap and water is allowed. If you experience any side effects or irritation.

  5. Keep the treated area moist by applying a Medi-Soothe (post-laser gel) at least once a day (after showering is ideal). This will help soothe and protect your skin from irritation or itching.

  6. The treated area may be washed gently with mild soap with lukewarm water. This skin should be patted dry and not rubbed with a towel.

  7. After 7 Days of your treatment, you are encouraged to exfoliate the treated area on a weekly basis using an exfoliating mitt, brush and Bodi Scrub by Therapi. This will help prevent ingrown hairs.

  8. Avoid any Heat Treatments such as Solariums, saunas and hot baths for at least 2 weeks after treatment. Do not use Perfumed/ Alcohol based products or fake tanning products in the area. Avoid picking the treated area, as this may cause scarring, infection or darkening of the skin.

We are dedicated to providing an exceptional standard of care, and we will work with you to ensure you are completely satisfied with your results.

    At Visage Clinics Australia, we only use safe and effective machines to ensure you achieve the results you are after. That's why we use Candela Gentlemax Pro. This TGA approved, medical-grade machine integrates both Alexandrite & YAG technology, meaning, no matter what your skin colour, we will be able to treat you! To enhance your experience, we use the Zimmer advanced cooling system that simultaneously operates as we treat you. This allows your skin to cool down during the process of laser hair reduction.
  • How long does laser hair removal last?
    Laser hair removal is the most effective method for long-term hair removal. Generally, 8-12 sessions are required for best results. Results vary from person to person and may require a maintenance session after some time.
  • How much hair do you lose after your first laser hair removal session?
    In most cases, results are noticeable after your first treatment. Depend on the growth stage of the hair, you can expect a reduction of up to 10% per session.
  • How many sessions do I need for laser hair removal?
    8-12 sessions are recommended. However, this depends on the type of skin and hair, hormone levels, response to laser hair removal and other factors such as taking certain supplements. We are confident you will see the results after the first session. However, depending on the area to be treated, multiple sessions may be required at intervals of 4-6 weeks for permanent hair reduction. You can expect to see a reduction of up to 90%. For best results, annual maintenance therapy is recommended for several years.
  • Does laser hair removal hurt?
    Right from the start, the dermal therapists at Visage Clinics Australia will ensure you are relaxed and comfortable. Some clients report a tingling sensation on the skin's surface during treatment. Some are described as a rubber band snapping onto the skin. Treatment is painless for most clients. We also use the Zimmer, which blows cold air simultaneously while we laser.
  • What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
    It is normal to see the following: General skin redness Follicular oedema and erythema Slight general swelling The skin may feel hot – like a mild sunburn If there is a lot of skin pigment (freckles) present, scabbing may occur With following pre and post care advice, the above can be avoided.
