About Laser Hair Removal
Designed with sensitive skin in mind, our Laser Hair Removal technology is safe enough to be used on any part of the body and is suitable for different skin types whilst ensuring maximum results. All of our lasers feature a unique dynamic cooling device that helps to calm, soothe and protect the skin.
For your initial course of Laser Hair Removal treatment, we recommend approximately 6-12 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart (depending on area and skin tone). Everyone is slightly different so book a complimentary consultation with one of our Laser Therapists at your nearest clinic location.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Safe and effective technology
Our Laser Therapists are experienced in operating the market-leading Laser Hair Removal technology - Candela GentleLase Pro and GentleYag Pro, the world’s most efficient hair reduction system. The Candela GentleLASE Pro is designed to work for clients with dark hair and lighter skin, while the GentleYAG Pro works best on a darker skin tone.
Permanent hair reduction
Unlike other hair removal options, our medical-grade Laser Hair Removal means fast, safe, cost-effective, reliable, and permanent hair reduction.
Reduce ingrown hairs
Laser Hair Removal works by directing concentrated light to target the hair follicle at the root. The laser inhibits the hair’s ability to grow without disrupting or damaging the skin’s surface, so even the most sensitive skin can be treated.
Convenient & cost effective
We have the most affordable Laser Hair Removal prices and will match any competitor's price.
How it works
Our experienced therapists will take your skin and hair type into account before creating a personalised treatment plan.
Our lasers use a wide beam which allows the removal of multiple hair follicles at the same time.
The Candela GentleLASE Pro is designed to work for clients with dark hair and lighter skin, while the GentleYAG Pro works best on a darker skin tone.
With each session, hair is reduced. We recommend an initial course of 6-10 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart (depending on area and skin tone).
Preparation and aftercare
Shave the treatment area the night before your appointment.
Do not wax in the 4 weeks leading up to your appointment as pigment is required in the hair follicle for the laser to identify the hair and treatment to be effective
Avoid direct sunlight
Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight for 2 weeks prior to your treatment and always protect the skin with sunscreen.
There may be some mild heat and redness in areas that have been treated. Soothe any redness and sensitivity with institut Laser Aid. This can be applied liberally for 3-5 days or until the skin has returned to its pre-treatment state.
Things to avoid
For 24 hours post-treatment, avoid shaving, waxing, or plucking hair, exfoliation, excessive sweating, swimming or saunas, very hot showers, and tight restrictive clothing.
Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight for 2 weeks after your treatment and always use the institut Age Defence 50+ to protect the skin and maintain results.
institut Glycolic Scrub 14% is recommended to use 5 days post-treatment to ensure the hair is encouraged to shed from the follicle and aid in the treatment of ingrown hairs.

Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to do to prepare for my Laser Hair Removal appointment?
- Shave treatment area at least 12-24 hours prior to your treatment
- Avoid chemical peels or laser resurfacing treatments at least 4 weeks before your treatment
- Exfoliate the treatment area at least 3 days before your treatment
- Ensure no residue fake tan is present on the skin
- Avoid excessive sun exposure on the area being treated two weeks prior (including solariums or tanning drugs)
- Avoid using topical creams/moisturisers, perfumes to the area being treated before the appointment
- Do not wax, use depilatory creams or pluck hairs four weeks prior to laser treatment
How often do I need to get Laser Hair Removal?
Depending on the hair, skin type, and body area being treated, you will require treatments at 4-6 weeks intervals. For the facial area, treatments should be done in 2-week intervals unless recommended otherwise.
Each part of the facial and body area has a different growing cycle, so hair reduction will vary depending on what stage your follicles are in at the time of the treatment. After each treatment hair is reduced hence it is important to complete the entire recommended course of treatments and at consistent intervals for best results. We recommend a series of 6-12 treatments and maintenance treatments every 2-3 months for permanent hair reduction.
Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?
One of the benefits of Laser Hair Removal is that the treatment is virtually painless, especially compared to waxing. Each pulse lasts less than a second, producing a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a rubber band snap on the skin. We use an advanced cooling machine in conjunction with our laser device to reduce the heat sensation on the skin and minimise any discomfort.
Can I have Laser Hair Removal if I am on certain medications?
Unfortunately, topical numbing creams are not safe nor effective when doing Laser Hair Removal. The sensation you feel in treatment is not felt on the skin, but in the follicle of the hair. Unfortunately numbing cream cannot penetrate deep enough to minimise the discomfort that may be felt at the follicle. Please ensure that no occlusive creams are present in the treatment areas when undergoing laser hair removal treatments.
How long should I go in between Laser Hair Removal appointments?
Depending on your hair and skin type and the area being treated, you will usually require treatments at 4-6 week intervals.
Each part of the body has a different hair growing cycle, so the hair loss will vary depending on what phase your follicles are in at the time of treatment.
What is the minimum age for Laser Hair Removal?
At Laser Clinics New Zealand, we recommend that Laser Hair Removal clients undergoing Laser Hair Removal treatments are 18 years or older. This ensures optimal treatment results. Prior to the age of 18 years, hair growth has not fully developed due to changing hormonal levels.
In certain instances, we can provide Laser Hair Removal treatments to clients 12 years and over. However, for clients 18 years and under, a parent or guardian is required at the clinic for your first treatment. Your parent or guardian is required to sign a consent form and be present in the consultation to ensure they understand the procedure and aftercare. Note, it is optional for parents and guardians to be in the treatment room for the first treatment.
What Laser Hair Removal machines do you use?
At Laser Clinics, we use the world's leading Laser Hair Removal technology. Medical-grade, Candela GentleLASE Pro and GentleYAG Pro. This technology is TGA approved and uses Alexandrite technology to provide the best treatment results. Our advanced cooling machines used in all laser treatments cool your skin before, during and post-treatment to minimise any discomfort.
Can I have Laser Hair Removal over the top of tattoos?
No, unfortunately we cannot treat over tattoos with our laser. We can treat around the tattooed areas with a gap of 3cm.
Can I get Laser Hair Removal if I have Epilepsy?
Epilepsy sufferers are advised to consult with their doctor about having Laser Hair Removal. An individual will need to obtain medical clearance from their doctor prior to starting treatment. At Laser Clinics New Zealand, we also offer various options of protective eyewear to ensure your safety at all times during treatment.
Can I have Laser Hair Removal if I am on certain medications?
Certain medications can cause photo-sensitivity to the skin and this may affect the skin's reaction to the treatment. These medications are but not limited to oral and topical vitamin A's, antibiotics, and certain anti-depressants. It is best to speak with your medical professional and obtain medical clearance. After obtaining medical clearance, we are able to test patch you with the laser to determine it is safe to commence treatment.
Can I still get Laser Hair Removal if I am pregnant/breastfeeding?
There are no conclusive studies on laser being safe or unsafe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. We advise our pregnant and breastfeeding clients to obtain medical clearance prior to proceeding with treatment.
