Laser hair removal is a safe and cost effective, long term hair removal treatment which achieves lasting results.
At Caci, we have been offering laser hair removal for over 20 years and have treated over 20,000 clients.
Laser Hair Removal allows you to be hair free, without the hassle of shaving. It can save you both time and money in the long run.
While there are technical differences between the machines, for the sake of simplicity, we often use the term “laser” for them all.
At Caci we use the latest generation VPL (variable pulsed light) in all our Caci clinics and some locations now also offer a Diode Laser option for long term hair removal. With VPL the variable settings mean that the machines can effectively treat the different types of hair found all over the body, from thicker underarm hair to finer facial hair. While the Diode Laser allows us to treat a wider range of skin and hair tones.
Laser Hair Removal works by passing a light beam through the unwanted hair area which is then absorbed by the pigment (colour) within the hair shaft and hair follicle. This generates heat, which loosens the hair and disables the hair forming cells.
We treat the following areas with Laser Hair Removal:
You should start to see results after your second or third treatment. Because you see yourself everyday it is difficult for you to see gradual improvements taking place. At Caci we aim for up to an 80% reduction in unwanted hair although individual results may vary.*
We recommend a course of treatments to receive permanent hair removal results. Our laser hair removal programme, Freedom®, gives you a treatment schedule and allows you to pay for treatments weekly, fortnightly or monthly plus offers our exclusive guarantee* Learn more about Freedom® our laser hair removal programme.
Blonde, red and grey hairs are more difficult to remove and may not be able to be treated.
Fitzpatrick skin types I-IIII can be safely treated with no reports of any adverse affects. However, skin type IV and above is generally not recommended for treatment. Our team will check your skin type during your free consultation.
Any underlying medical conditions may exclude you from treatment or the results may be negligible. It is very important that you state clearly any medical conditions that you have or any medical treatments you are undertaking.

The level of discomfort varies between individuals and the different areas being treated. Some people feel nothing, some feel a heat sensation, and some have likened the sensation to mild stinging or the flicking of a rubber band. Generally the coarser or thicker the hair, the greater the sensation.There is usually some form of skin response post treatment, normally a mild redness.
