Excess Hair

Remove and reduce unwanted hair from the face and body

Excess hair can be a stubborn and sensitive problem, but our expert staff have plenty of experience treating this area and can help you feel confident about getting the results you're seeking. 

There are a variety of factors that can cause unwanted hair, but treatments are available to help manage the condition. 

We offer a number of treatment options to help you get the confidence you are after!

Excess Hair

Laser Hair Removal

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.

What is laser hair removal? 
At Caci we use Diode Laser for long term hair removal. A beam of light is passed through the targeted area, where it's absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft and follicle. This generates heat, which loosens the hair and also disables the cells involved in hair growth to prevent future hairs from forming.

How many treatments do I need? 
For best results, we recommend at least 8 treatments, with each treatment performed around 5-6 weeks apart.

Who is it suitable for?
The laser works by targeting colour in the hair shaft and follicle – so we see the best results with darker hair. For that reason, blonde, red and grey hairs can be more difficult to remove.  

What happens after my treatment?
There’s no downtime after your treatment, although your skin may be pink or even red in the treated area. This is quite normal. Redness may last from a few minutes up to 24 hours and it may feel a little like mild sunburn or windburn. You can apply a cold compress if required. Apply SPF30 sunscreen daily.  Take the day off from the gym, pool, spa for at least 24/48hours to avoid heat or excessive sweating. See our post-treatment advice below for more information.

Waxing

You can have almost any area of your body waxed, including your eyebrows, face, bikini, legs, arms, chest, back, abdomen, and feet.

Unlike shaving, new hair growth in waxed areas is soft and fine, not sharp and coarse. After repeated waxing, the hair can appear to sparser, and in some cases lighter. Waxing should be performed every four to six weeks by an experienced professional. This is the average growth cycle for hair, and allows for your hair to be the correct length at your next wax.

BRAZILIAN WAXING

A Brazilian wax removes all of your pubic hair from your front, middle and back. Getting a Brazilian wax is an intimate experience, but not one that you need to worry over. Whether it’s your first Brazilian, or you’re a regular client, our experienced beauty therapists will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible.

Brazilian wax procedure

1. After you enter the treatment room, you’ll be provided with a disposable g-string, which you will wear throughout the treatment - this is for both hygiene and modesty

2. Your beauty therapist will apply hair removal wax on both your front and back in a way that is comfortable for you, so don’t worry about being put in any awkward positions

3. Should you have any stray hairs, these will be tweezed after your waxing has finished, and a soothing lotion will then be applied

4. After your wax is over, ask your beauty therapist about the take-home, after-care products to minimise any ingrown hairs

Aftercare

For the first 24 hours after your Brazilian wax, you should avoid:

  • Swimming in chlorinated pools
  • Spa pools
  • Sun bed, in fact the area should not be exposed to direct sunlight at all
  • Highly perfumed products
  • Spray tanning
  • Physical exertion or activity

Electrolysis

This hair removal treatment is suitable for most areas on the body and hair types.

Electrolysis removes hair while promoting lesser, finer hair growth over time.* It works by passing a small amount of energy (a current) into your hair follicle through a very fine probe. This then produces a chemical reaction that destroys the cells at the base of the hair. Each hair is probed individually and then removed using tweezers.

This hair reduction treatment can be used to treat most areas on your face and body, but electrolysis is best suited for treating small localised areas such as your upper lip, chin, eyebrows, midline of your stomach, and your areola. This treatment is suitable for most hair types.

Electrolysis can also be used to treat red veins of the face and ingrown hairs.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ELECTROLYSIS?

  • Electrolysis effectively treats all hair colours, including light blonde and white hairs which are unable to be treated by VPL*
  • Electrolysis promotes lesser, finer hair growth
  • Hair that has been treated by electrolysis rarely (if ever) grows back, and because of this it is a highly sought-after procedure for people suffering from ingrown hairs


DOES ELECTROLYSIS HURT?

Some people find the electrolysis process more painful than others, with some people comparing the feeling to getting a tattoo, or snapping a rubber band against the skin. This feeling is not caused by the insertion of the epilator, but by the application of the electric current which stimulates nerves that are present near the hair. If you are sensitive to pain, then please contact your local Caci to talk about pain management and your hair removal options.
