The Geelong Laser and Electrolysis Clinic (GLEC) is the number one hair removal clinic in the Geelong region, a homage to owner Helen Hochreiter’s 20 years’ experience.
Permanent hair removal is Helen and her staff’s speciality with a sole focus on providing the best in laser and electrolysis.
The GLEC team use the LightSheer DUET laser system by Lumenis which makes it the ideal solution for safely, comfortably, and efficiently removing hair from larger surface areas like the back, legs, and bikini line.
LightSheer enables them to treat larger areas comfortably in 15 minutes without anaesthetic or gels; with vacuum-assist technology and an increased spot size of 22 x 35mm, the DUET laser system removes hair in less time and with less prep time than other lasers.
Laser hair removal treatments can be used to get rid of excessive and embarrassing hair growth anywhere on the face and body, including the upper lip and face, chin and neck, bikini line and arms and hands.
Helen said hair removal can be a delicate topic to talk about and ensured customers felt comfortable and aware that they were not alone when it comes to unwanted hair.
“It can be difficult to speak to a stranger especially if we feel we are the only one with unwanted hair on our body,” she said.
“For 20 years I have assisted women and men to remove their unwanted hair. For women, hirsutism or hormonal problems may lead to increased hair growth or growth in unusual areas. Men may also have excessive hair growth or may develop pilonidal cysts that can be alleviated through hair removal.
“In a private and understanding environment, I listen and speak with you about the process of hair removal that is right for your skin and hair type. Different skin pigmentations and different hair colour can be factors in how successful laser or electrolysis is for you.”
A combination of laser hair removal and electrolysis works well for many people, laser is a fast method for removing dark hair from light skin toned people; electrolysis is the recommended method of hair removal for the face and neck and is often used as a follow-up treatment to laser hair removal on the body.
Electrolysis is also the recommended method of hair removal for clients with darker skin tones due to laser’s paradoxical side effect.
