If you’ve ever wondered exactly what cosmetic lasers are and what they can treat, keep reading.  We’re going to do a bit of a deep dive into the multiple lasers at Injex Clinics, and exactly what they can treat.

Our Lasers

We have 2 lasers, a 755nm Alexandrite and a Q-Swithed, Nd:Yag which has a dual wave length of 532nm and 1064nm.  So what that means essentially is it’s like having 2 lasers in one, which in turn means we can treat more conditions.

Hair removal

Laser is THE most effective method of hair removal on the market.  In fact, we can guarantee an 80% reduction in hair growth! How amazing is that!

What you need to know:

You’ll need a minimum of 10 sessions, some will need more depending on how stubborn your hair is.
Treatments are best scheduled 6-10 weeks apart depending on what area you’re treating. Hormonal areas such as Brazillian and underarms we recommend every 6 weeks as these areas grow a bit faster.  The extremities, such as arms and legs grow a little slower, so you can push these out to 10 weeks.

Tattoo removal

It’s estimated that 80% of people regret a tattoo! That is HUGE! So it’s lucky we’ve got a laser that can target almost all colours except white (no laser can do white) yellow and green.

What you need to know:

It’s not exactly a comfortable treatment, however as you go along, it does get more comfortable.  For tattoo removal we recommend sessions every 6 weeks.  It’s almost impossible to determine how many sessions you’ll need as every tattooist uses different ink, tattoo’s at different depths, colour is also a factor, how long you’ve had the tattoo, and even how close it is to your heart (the closer it is, the quicker it will go).  We also use a medical grade numbing cream to make treatment as comfortable as possible.

Pigmentation treatment

Pigmentation comes in many forms; freckles, melasma, sun spots, acne scarring, which is why we love having 2 lasers. These different pigments are targeted best with different lasers and wave lengths.

What you need to know:

For freckles, we use the 755nm and can usually get good clearance in just 1 session. For melasma we use the 1064 on a long pulse mode and this is usually a minimum of 6 treatments. Sun spots we use the 532 and again, usually only takes 1 treatment.

Carbon laser facial

Carbon laser facial, or as they’re also known, China Doll Facials, use a carbon cream that’s put onto the skin to attract the laser to the black pigment.

What you need to know:

Carbon laser facial’s are a very comfortable treatment.  They are however, very loud! As the laser hits the carbon it is instantly evaporated along with dead skin! Because it is evaporated so quickly it makes a big pop sound!  Carbons are a great option for those who have active acne, acne scarring, want to reduce pore size, plump up their skin a bit, treat uneven skin tone, and fine lines.  Carbon laser facials are also best in a series of 3.
