Permanent Hair Reduction

Elysium Skin Centre is a specialized cosmetic medicine and laser therapy clinic accredited with Queensland Health, not a beauty salon. Our focus is on safety and results. All hair removal is tailored according to the patient’s skin type, hair type and location. The procedures are only performed by our Dermal Therapist Todd Wilkinson and Nurse Fay Hollis under the supervision and guidance of Dr. Csilla Novak.

Our Cutera Prowave 770 is a medical grade IPL which produces wavelengths equivalent to Alexandrite and diode lasers, and near Nd:Yag laser. It is the gold standard in IPL hair removal and has the power to effectively clear hair permanently while remaining safe for the surrounding skin.

To ensure comfort and safety, the Cutera Prowave has a chill tip set at 5 oC which effectively cools the skin by direct contact before, during and after each IPL shot. Other systems utilize a short blast of cold air or have no cooling function at all. While a sensation like a rubber band snapping on the skin may be felt with each shot, the procedure is very well tolerated (even by men!) and is far less painful than waxing.

Clinical studies have shown that the Cutera Prowave 770 can produce an 80% reduction in hairs in some patients after just 3 treatments. Results, however, vary significantly according to hair colour and thickness, location, skin type and level of tanning. In addition, medical and hormonal factors may also have an effect on the degree and permanency of hair removal. On average we find that 6 treatments results in a high level of permanent hair reduction, while some patients may need 8-10 treatments to achieve this level. Red, grey and blonde hairs will not respond to any form of IPL or laser hair removal, and fine vellus hairs can also be difficult to treat with any modality. All of these issues will be discussed with you during the consultation and assessment prior to hair removal.
