Laser hair removal treatment has been an established way to effectively and permanently remove body hair for decades now, giving both men and women the opportunity to simplify their grooming routines for the rest of their lives. However, whilst the procedure is one of the most effective permanent hair removal options available, it is important for those considering the treatment to opt for a clinic that is reputable, knowledgeable and will deliver the best results.
As anyone who has opted for treatment in a budget hair removal clinic will be able to tell you, the cost of treatment tends to match up with quality. Cheaper clinics often use outdated equipment that is less effective than the fantastic technology available elsewhere.
Having said this, many expensive clinics are also using outdated equipment due to the sheer rate at which laser hair removal technology is advancing. As such, it is important that you opt for a clinic that knows its stuff and is willing to invest in the best technologies on a regular basis.
Fortunately, The Derm Lab has its finger on the pulse, offering customers the best, most effective treatments around. Thanks to its commitment to staying ahead of the crowd, choosing a clinic that is right for you has never been easier!
Customers that opt for The Derm Lab can rest assured that their hair removal treatment will be fast, easy, permanent, and virtually free of pain. Our super affordable prices also mean that they will be able to return again and again.

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%.

We offer a diode laser hair removal system that is fantastic for a variety of reasons, including:
If all of this weren’t enough, The Derm Lab staff are all friendly and expertly trained in operating our medical-grade lasers.
Our specialised diode lasers are able to remove hair follicles from any given area thanks to its wide beam of concentrated light. The light works to prevents hairs from returning without causing any damage to the skin being treated. To ensure we cater for all skin types, our therapists are trained in selecting the best hair removal treatment plan for every customer.
Once we have completed your treatment, we will provide you with a detailed aftercare plan to ensure that results are well maintained and pain is kept to a minimum. For many customers, there is very little pain associated with the treatment. The most likely side effect customers may experience is mild redness or heat in the area that has been treated. If this happens, make sure to avoid the following activities for 24 hours after treatment:
DO remember to wear sunscreen that is at least factor 50.

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. 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 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.
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 helps 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 to such patients in order to help alleviate the financial cost.
