Medical Laser Hair Removal

  • Actual Laser by Doctors
  • Vacuum-Assisted
  • Ultra-Fast and Painless

Ideal for both men and women, medical laser hair removal is performed by our doctors at Medisculpt. This entails a relatively quick and painless procedure (without the use of messy gels) and produces results that can last a lifetime.

Note: In Western Australia, by Law, only Medical Doctors can perform skin treatments using dermatological grade C4 Lasers. Hence, unlike the Eastern States (NSW, VIC, SA), where the laws allow non-medical professionals to operate lasers, there are no cheap laser hair removal salons in WA. Hair removal treatments in Western Australia are performed by IPL devices. Medisculpt™ is the only clinic in Western Australia to offer true Laser Hair Removal using the latest generation of Lumenis Lightsheer™ technology alongside top-of-the-range Medical IPL Platforms.

Lumenis™ is an American based company recognised globally for manufacturing top-of-the-range dermatological laser and light platforms.

The LightSheer Desire™ and the Lightsheer Duet™ Lasers represent the newest and most advanced generation of laser hair removal technology, to offer unparalleled speed, comfort, and effectiveness for the process of permanent hair removal.

Both of these lasers work by combining two technologies:

  • High-Speed Integrated Technology (HIT), which uses an advanced vacuum-like technique to allow for easier and safer removal of hair in larger patches
  • ChillTip Technology, which uses a specialised cooling mechanism to maximise patient comfort while treating smaller or more delicate areas with precision.

 

The LightSheer Laser technology has been clinically tested and proven to be suitable for all skin types, for both men and women alike. If you have any unwanted body or facial hair, the LightSheer Desire is ready to help you achieve your desired result.

Common treatment areas include:

  • Back
  • Full legs
  • Forearms
  • Underarms
  • Bikini
  • Chin

 

Hirsutism is the medical term to describe excessive hair production in women. Hirsutism can be a result of multiple factors and is a significant cause of emotional distress and self-esteem issues. All women have facial and body hair, but this hair usually appears very fine and light in colour. The main difference between the normal hair on a woman’s body and face and hirsutism is its texture.

Excessive or unwanted hair that grows on a woman’s face, arms, back or chest is usually coarse and dark. The growth pattern of hirsutism in women is similar to that of healthy hair growth in males.

In contrast, hypertrichosis is excessive hair growth over and above the normal for the age, sex and race of an individual. Hypertrichosis can develop all over the body or be isolated to small patches on the bodies of both men and women. This condition may be congenital (present at birth) or acquired (arising later in life).

For males, folliculitis barbae is a type of folliculitis affecting the beard area. It is also more commonly known as 'shaving rash' or 'razor bumps'. In short, 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 makes the sharp-pointed end of the recently shaved hair more likely to re-enter the skin nearby.

After shaving, patients of this condition 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 then develop and cause further discomfort.

 

Before LightSheer technology, removing hair from large areas such as the back or legs was a painful, expensive, and incredibly time-consuming process.

However, the LightSheer Desire’s versatility allows it to treat more delicate areas such as the face or bikini region just as quickly and just as effectively (even during the same appointment).

The LightSheer Laser uses a laser with an 805nm diode wavelength, the new gold standard for universal safety across all skin types. Repeated pulses from the laser first eliminate existing hair and then allow the laser’s heat to penetrate the skin and direct energy into the hair follicles to preventing future hair growth. Compared to other laser treatments, the LightSheer Laser’s larger spot size allows for deeper penetration with fewer pulses, decreasing the likelihood of future regrowth while also allowing for faster treatment.

The Lightsheer™ Laser offers three different treatment spot sizes for maximum versatility, and each uses specialised technology suited to that particular spot size. For the largest spot size, the High-Speed Integrated Technology incorporates suction to elevate and stretch the skin. 

By stretching the skin thinner, the laser achieves maximum absorption in hair follicles while minimising the physical sensation of heat. For the two smaller spot sizes, the ChillTip technology uses a specialised cooling system to achieve the same effect. The cold raises the hair follicle, allowing for easier hair removal and deeper penetration, and additionally numbs the skin to minimise pain temporarily.

 

Medisculpt™ is the only clinic in Western Australia to offer the latest Lumenis Lightsheer Desire™ Laser Hair Removal Treatment.

 

 

In Perth, all Lumenis Lightsheer™ treatments are exclusively performed by our doctors for medical laser hair removal. Pricing starts from $500 per treatment area per session for smaller areas such as the neck. Large areas like full back, chest and arms may cost approximately $1,500 per area per session.

At Medisculpt®, our philosophy is to artistically enhance your appearance in a way that stresses elegance over glamour.
