Couples that laser together stay together, has become a new trend, thanks to the likes of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West over the past 2 years.
We all know regular grooming helps your outward appearance and your self confidence. When you look good, you feel good, so why wouldn’t you want to stay young and smooth together with Laser Hair Removal at Australia’s most trusted skin and laser clinic – Results Laser Clinic.
In the past, women have normally been the ones to want hair removal for their legs, underarms and Brazilians, but now we are seeing a rise in the number of men wanting to be hair free too! Whether it’s the back, chest or even cheeks, men are stepping up their metro-sexual game and becoming silky smooth too.
What sets our treatments aside from beauty salons, is that at Results Laser Clinic we provide a pain free hair removal treatment, for both men and women, for both dark and light skin, that have instant results using medical grade laser hair removal technologies. Our lasers emit a light that is absorbed by the colour (melanin) in your hair. The light generates heat that travels down the hair shaft to the hair follicle under the skin, permanently disabling its ability to regrow and leaving you one step closer to be hair free in all the right places.
In as little as 6 – 10 treatments, you can remove up to 99% of unwanted hair and you can be sexy and smooth laser lovers for summer!
Quick, safe, reliable and affordable, you can now book in your couples laser date. Visit www.resultslaserclinic.com.au or call 02 9893 8883 to connect with one of our clinics in your area and get ready for summer.

Treatments for Skin Pigmentation
Get in touch with us
Melanocytes are cells that produce pigment and influence one’s skin colour. When there is an abnormal production and deposition of melanin, it results in excessive skin pigmentation known as hyperpigmentation. There are several causes for pigmentation including UV exposure, hormones, skin trauma and genetics. Pigmentation can be differentiated as epidermal (superficial), dermal (deep) and combination. Skin pigmentation and skin types require different treatments and UV protection on a daily basis.
Results Laser hair removal Clinic provides a number of treatments and technologies for pigmentation. This includes the most advanced Lasers, IPL pigmentation, microdermabrasion, scientifically proven chemical peels and skin treatments to provide the best solution. More importantly, therapists cater to your individual needs and budget by providing an honest and realistic outcome in the consultation. When discussing treatment options with your therapist, you will be advised both of your suitability for the treatment, costs and benefits.
Everyone will have different colour skin and the ideal look of healthy skin is an even skin tone. There are a number of factors that affect skin quality and skin disorders such as pigmentation and these affect the colour of your skin too. Darker skin tones tend to pigment, scar and mark more easily compared to lighter skin tones & they leave behind a lot of permanent pigmentation marks. Results Laser Clinic offers safe solutions for different skin types.
These are combined with cutting-edge treatments with the use of a highly advanced range of skincare products, which help in enhancing the skin’s natural beauty. They effectively target uneven skin tone and pigmentation and restore the lighter & brighter even skin tone and give you glowing and radiant skin.
The products and treatments we use are also effective in the treatment of coloured patches or spots on the skin. The patches and spots are a result of increased melanin production in the skin when its cells become unhealthy or get damaged. Pigmentation can occur in patches on different parts of the body including the face. It is an extremely common condition and can be easily managed with Advanced Laser Treatments.”

What To Expect of the Pigmentation Treatment
Get in touch with us
IPL treatments are performed to reduce melanin, the dark pigment in your skin.
Results Laser Clinic uses Intense Pulse Light to destroy Pigmentation – a new and effective light based therapeutic treatment called Photo Rejuvenation. With the treatment taking no longer than 25 minutes, clients can schedule appointments in their lunch break. Our therapists at Results Laser Clinic determine an IPL treatment plan based on the individual, taking into account the number and severity of the skin condition being treated, as well as skin type. On average 3 to 5 treatments are recommended at intervals of 3 to 4 weeks. IPL treatments provide gradual, natural improvements with excellent long term results.
Intense Pulsed Light therapy uses multiple wavelengths of light to emit the precise energy level to treat the melanin within the pigmentation. The IPL Palomar light pulse is directly absorbed by the pigment in the lesion. The light heats the pigment and breaks it up. The lesion darkens and crusts after treatment and is naturally shed from the skin after approximately ten days after treatment. Our highly trained specialists are able to treat this skin condition with pinpoint accuracy using the IPL computer-controlled system which allows the skin and healthy surrounding tissue to cool down, avoiding thermal damage. Over time and with the right course of treatment, skin pigmentation and freckles become visibly reduced resulting in a more rejuvenated, younger look.
Before the treatment, the client is evaluated to ensure the lesions are benign. A biopsy of the area may also be recommended. Protective eyewear has to be worn by the patient and specialist due to the brightness of the Intense Pulse Light (IPL). During the treatment, our specialist apply a smooth, glass surface of the IPL handpiece to the skin, light is then delivered to the skin surface in precise pulses that are typically pain free. Once treatment is completed clients may feel a little heat on the surface of the treated area and some redness, which can last for 1 to 2 hours. In most cases the entire face is treated but that depends on the individual. Results from a full series of treatments last approximately upwards of a year, however, maintenance treatment sessions scheduled at half-yearly intervals will help to prolong results.
Causes of Skin Pigmentation and Sun Spots
Get in touch with us
Signs and Symptoms of pigmentation and sun spots
Pigmentation can vary in size and colour however they are usually darker than the skin although they can be pink in colour. Fair skinned individuals are more likely to be affected by moles and freckles which can also be attributed to hereditary factors. Almost everyone has at least some kind of pigmentation whether it be freckles, sun spots, moles or birth marks. There are no real symptoms that cause pigmentation and they may even appear overnight, however in some cases what may appear like normal pigmentation may also be cancerous. Therefore it is imperative that excessive exposure to the sun is approached in a safe manner using a highly protective sunscreen with an SPF of 50+, whilst those with a history of cancer in the family can be put at greater risk.
Causes of Pigmentation and Sun Spots
Pigmentation is caused by an excessive amount of melanin found in certain skin cells. These skin cells generally carry higher levels of melanocytes which produce the melanin causing the skin to appear pigmented in certain areas.
Pigmentation can be attributed to environmental factors such as:
- Excessive exposure to the sun
- The contraceptive pill
- Hereditary factors
