Laser treatment has long been recognised as the most effective way to help remove hair from any part of the human body. However, what is slightly less well known is that no two laser hair removal clinics in Melbourne are the same. The cheaper centres tend to use old and outdated equipment that is far less advanced than what’s currently available.
Many of the most expensive Melbourne removal clinics are also using lasers that are outdated, despite being just one or two years old. The reason for this is that laser technology is rapidly advancing all the time. Many clinics invest once in their equipment and then spend years failing to keep up with new trends and advancements. Well, we think this is the wrong way to treat patients and, to do business.
Instead, The Derm Lab Melbourne clinic places an emphasis on staying ahead of the curve, and we now use the newest and most exclusive laser technology available anywhere in Melbourne. This allows us to offer a service that’s virtually painless, permanent, quick, simple and that works out more affordable in the long term. After a few well-targeted hair removal treatment sessions, you can have smooth, silky skin all year round!
Waxing and shaving are finally a thing of the past. Laser hair removal offers you the luxury of silky smooth and ready-for-anything skin all year round. Treatments are fast, effective, affordable – and the reduction is permanent!
We truly believe in offering the most advanced laser hair removal service anywhere in Melbourne. Our staff are all highly trained and pay meticulous attention to detail, in order to find a permanent hair removal treatment plan that’s perfect for you. As such, we even offer a free patch test to find the right settings for you and to help demonstrate the effectiveness of our service before you pay in full. The Derm Lab Satisfaction Guarantee sees us providing all patients with nothing short of an outstanding experience, right from the moment you call and book an appointment.
Treatments every 8 – 10 weeks for the body and every 4 – 6 weeks for the face.
90% permanent hair removal in 4 – 8 weeks
Darker hair respond best to treatment due to a higher concentration of pigmentation (melanin) in the follicle
Avoid waxing, plucking or threading the area for 4 weeks before treatment
No sun exposure, use of self-tanners (including spray tans) or use of solariums prior to treatments
Use of Retinol or Retin-A products should cease 1-2 weeks prior to laser hair removal
By investing in Diode laser wavelength, we are able to offer laser hair removal services to people with all kinds of skin types. This includes both dark and light skin. Other lasers, such as ND:Yag or Alexandrite, are limited in effectiveness to either light or dark skin, but never cater to both.
If you want to get even more technical, then here’s a bit about the strength (known as Fluence) of energy our lasers provide. In total, they offer up to 43 Joules over a 30mm spot size. This is much larger and more effective than, say the Candela Alexandrite lasers. They offer up only 20 Joules and are limited to a spot size of just 18mm.
Our lasers work by delivering four pulses per second over the area size mentioned above. In comparison, the Candela Alexandrite only emits two pulses per second. Effectively, our lasers can treat a larger area with more energy and can do so twice as quickly as rival laser technology. This allows us to drastically decrease the amount of time your treatment takes, allowing you to come in, receive your treatment and then get on with your day!
As mentioned above, we provide a free patch test to every new patients wanting to try out our lasers. This allows us to see exactly which settings suit your skin best and in turn, provide a superior result. It also offers us the chance to prove to you why we are the best in Melbourne and for you to decide if you’d like to try our full service.
By continually being open and honest with our patients, and then delivering on our promises, we have built up an incredible reputation in the Melbourne area. We believe this success is also due to our very clear results and the service we offer. Simply put, we provide a more effective service that lasts longer, takes less time and is more affordable than other laser clinics. Furthermore, if you find a competitor cheaper than us, we vow to beat that quote by 10%.

Here’s a quick look at the very obvious benefits our Diode laser hair equipment offers you:
Most importantly, all of our staff are fully qualified and trained in the skill of handling these medical grade lasers.
Our diode lasers draw upon a wide beam to remove multiple hair follicles from the area all at the same time. They do so by directing concentrated light into the hair follicle. This light then stops the hair from growing back, while at the same time doing no damage to the surrounding skin. Of course, there are a variety of different skin types, so before beginning the process, our highly trained therapists will assist you in deciding how the hair removal treatments would be best scheduled.
Once completed, we will then provide you with a full aftercare plan to help maximise results and limit any soreness or inconvenience. For many, this will be barely noticeable. However, you might experience some mild redness or heat in the treated areas. As such, we often advise that you avoid any of the following for the immediate 24 hours following your treatment:
By carefully targeting problem areas, we are able to offer a reduction in permanent hair growth of up to 95%. This is achieved through a series of sessions which carefully target and remove certain follicles. This is much more effective than traditional methods of removing hairs, including waxing, shaving and plucking. All of which are far more temporary and, of course, much more painful as well!
You will not be able to achieve 95% permanent hair growth reduction after just one session in our Melbourne clinic. This is because hair follicles grow in cycles. As such, you will need around six to 10 treatments to remove this much hair from your body and face. Your treatments should be performed every six to eight weeks on the body or four to six weeks on the face. You might experience slightly faster or slower results, depending on personal factors such as your genetics, hormones or any medication you take.
No treatment is without its risks, and you might experience some mild reactions. However, we find that such occurrences are rare, due to our extensive pre-treatment screenings and assessments. Our Melbourne medically trained nurses know how to properly assess your skin and decide on a treatment that is most effective and safe. Also, as all of our equipment is FDA and TGA approved, you can rest assured you are not prone to any added risks.
Laser hair removal therapy can be effective for almost everyone, however, those with darker skin typically achieve faster and more permanent results due to the higher level of pigment in the skin. Lighter skin colours might lack enough pigment to allow for dramatic hair reduction on a permanent basis. But again, this can all be assessed and discussed in your free consultation in our Melbourne clinic.
Absolutely! In fact, this is one of our most popular services. Both men and women are very sensitive about unwanted facial hair growth, and our advanced equipment can help offer permanent hair growth reduction from all problem areas. This includes areas such as your upper lip, between the eyebrows, chin, hairline and cheeks.
Yes, laser hair removal therapy will help battle ingrown hairs in two ways. First, by destroying hair follicles, it removes the risk of ingrown hairs that are a typical nuisance with other methods of hair removal. At the same time, it will also destroy and remove existing ingrown hairs that are causing you discomfort.
No, certainly not. Some treatment centres continue to use outdated and far less effective technology that leads to truly inadequate results when it comes to removing hairs. On the flip side, all our equipment is FDA and TGA approved by the highly acclaimed manufacturer, Cocoon. They produce Medical Grade PrimeLase Diode lasers which help make them leaders in commercial medical technology.
Yes, some people are more prone to experiencing higher levels of hair growth. Though our lasers can lead to up to 90% permanent reductions in growth, existing conditions might cause you to see a faster return of hair. This includes PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) which affects roughly 7% of women. Such patients require more regular maintenance. That’s why we offer a 15% discount in our Melbourne clinic to such patients in order to help alleviate the financial cost.
