The medical-grade GentleMax® Pro Candela laser delivers an intense yet gentle energy burst onto targeted areas, so it targets the area safely and effectively. Victorian Dermal Group is the only practice in Melbourne where you’ll find this powerful laser.
Medical grade lasers are so effective that they supersede IPL. These lasers operate in a specific wavelength that helps focus energy on the hair follicle to destroy it at its root.
Our treatments for men and women remove unwanted hair for the ultimate convenience and self-confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions – Laser Hair Removal
Your practitioner will use a small handpiece to deliver each laser pulse. A treatment could take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the treatment area and the condition being treated.
Some patients may feel a slight discomfort with each laser pulse, sometimes described like the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves quickly and is minimised by the patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) or air cooling. If you are sensitive to pain, a topical anaesthetic may be used prior to treatment. If you have concerns, be sure to discuss this with us before your treatment begins.
This depends on the treatment you require and the condition of your skin. You will need multiple treatments for hair removal. Other conditions may clear up in only one treatment, but many factors impact the efficacy of treatments, including the severity of the condition being treated.
Hair removal patients should avoid plucking, electrolysis or waxing for six weeks prior to treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. Skin should be clean-shaven and thoroughly cleansed, removing any makeup, creams, oils, topical anaesthetics or self-tanning products before laser treatment. Do not expose the intended treatment area to sunlight or tanning booth light prior to or immediately after treatment. Apply sunblock (SPF 30 or above) before treatment.
A cool compress or gel pack may be applied for comfort following your treatment. Any redness or swelling should resolve within a few hours.
Prevent sun exposure by applying sunblock (SPF 30 or above). In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleansers. Your practitioner may advise additional precautions.
Permanent side effects are rare, and may include redness, swelling, hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, blistering and purpura (a laser bruise) in the treated area—these usually do not last more than a few days. We will always discuss potential side effects of any treatment before we begin.
Most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic procedures. Some carriers will, however, cover the treatment of disfiguring birthmarks such as hemangiomas. Consult your insurance carrier for conclusive information.
