Laser Hair Removal

More people are turning away from razors and creams and looking towards laser as an effective and more permanent way to deal with the problem of unwanted hair, and for good reason. Laser technology has vastly improved, making this a great solution.

Laser hair removal treatment is fast, non-invasive and highly efficient. It is performed without damaging other skin structures and offers very little downtime.

Here at The Cooden Medical Group we offer a revolutionary treatment, using the most advanced Candela Elōs™ Plus Laser, which is a safe and effective method that will reduce unwanted hair from the following areas:

  • Face
  • Underarm
  • Bikini
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Torso
  • Stomach
  • Nipples
  • Toes and hands
  • laser hair removal can be applied to the face, underarm, legs or any other area with undesired hair
  • Cooden Medical Group offer laser hair removal
  • laser hair removal is an effective way to reduce and eliminate the appearance of hair on the skin
  • it often takes between 6 and 8 sessions for the results of laser hair removal to appear

Making the decision to throw away the razor is one very few regret. Soft, stubble free skin can never be underestimated and is definitely worth the cost of this effective treatment.

  • How many sessions are required?

    This depends on the body site, the hair density and individual tendency to produce hair. Whenever possible we try and estimate the number of sessions required at the first consultation.

    What happens before treatment?

    We will undertake a free consultant involving a free test-patch to assess how your skin responds to this treatment. This is essential, especially in individuals with darker skin types due to an increased risk associated with pigment in the skin.

    Are there any side effects?

    All laser systems produce mild discomfort in the skin at the time of treatment, and some associated redness which may take a few hours to settle. The Candela Elōs™ Plus Laser has a cooling treatment head and we also combine this with cooling gel to minimise heating of the upper surface layers; therefore any discomfort felt is minimal.

    What happens post laser treatment?

    We advise all patients to refrain from sun exposure during their course of treatment. Darker skin types are far more prone to side effects because any brown pigment in the skin can absorb increased amounts of laser energy. The same applies to individuals who have just returned from holiday or sun exposure.

    Is laser treatment permanent?

    No health care provider can ever guarantee that laser hair removal is permanent; re-growth of hair may re-start at any time following therapy. To maximise long-term success we recommend top up treatments at 6-9 months following a successful course of treatment.
