Hair Removal

What It Is

Throughout the year and especially during summer months, many people include hair removal in their regular self-care routines and upkeep. Laser hair removal is effective for use in many areas of the body and prevents hair growth by directing intense heat into the hair follicle, which destroys the hair without causing damage to surrounding skin and tissue. It is suitable for men and women of all skin types and tones, including those with sensitive skin.

After the procedure, you will notice that the hair in the treatment area will start to fall out on its own within 2 to 3 weeks. For permanent results, an average of 6 sessions is typically recommended although it varies from patient to patient and depends on the area being treated. This is because the laser treatment must target the hair follicle in the various stages of the hair growth cycle. During this time, re-growth is expected to occur but the hair will grow back thinner and lighter in colour. After a series of sessions, the laser hair removal procedure will leave the treated area smooth for a long period of time.

How It’s Treated

Laser Treatments

  • Alexandrite Laser - The gold-standard Alexandrite Laser is considered the most effective laser for hair removal for use with both men and women for all skin types, as the laser does not affect darker skin tones as much as other lasers do. The melanin (pigment) in your hair easily absorbs the wavelength emitted from the laser, which heats the cells and eliminates the hair follicle.
