Laser hair removal in Toronto, though not new to the cosmetic world, has surged in popularity in recent years—and for good reason! It’s a safe, effective method to permanently remove or reduce facial and body hair in the long game. For those looking to compress their regular self-care routines, laser hair removal is ideal as there’s minimal upkeep involved.
At Fairview Laser, laser hair removal is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment performed by industry-leading experts!
The objective of laser hair removal is to effectively remove unwanted hair with pulsed and precisely targeted heat. These treatments have been developed to destroy hair within individual hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin and tissue. Compared to other hair removal methods, laser treatments offer long-term results, leaving treated areas smooth and hair-free for extended periods of time or permanently. At Fairview Laser, we’ve prioritized offering treatments suitable for all genders, skin types and tones, and those with sensitive skin.
The first step of effective laser hair removal in Toronto is to complete an initial consultation with Dr. Jain, our principal Cosmetic Physician. During your consultation, you can express any unique needs you may have, and Dr. Jain will outline the best course of treatment for you!
The length of your laser hair removal sessions is dependent on the area(s) being treated, and can last anywhere from 10 minutes to just over an hour. Laser hair removal treatments can take place every four to eight weeks, depending on the treatment plan created with Dr. Jain. For more permanent results, an average of 6 sessions is typically recommended, although it varies from patient to patient.
The laser hair removal process at Fairview Laser consists of gold-standard lasers and technology. Our treatment utilizes the Gentlase Alexandrite laser with an encased alexandrite gemstone that is used to create a focussed light beam of 755 nm! This wavelength of emitted light from the Alexandrite Laser is specifically targeted to the melanin in hair, which will essentially destroy the cells. Compared to other laser technology used for similar treatments, the Gentlase alexandrite has higher rates of absorption of melanin. Having a laser with higher melanin absorption leads to optimal energy transfers, and ultimately a remarkable reduction in unwanted hair!
Gentlase Alexandrite laser is a premier option for successful, effective laser hair removal in Toronto!
At Fairview Laser, we understand everyone has unique concerns and needs. That’s why we’ve opted for safe, highly effective premium laser technology that can cater to all genders, skin types, and skin sensitivities! With this level of range, we’re able to cater to almost all unwanted hair removal requests! The most common areas of laser hair removal in Toronto typically include the armpits, legs, arms, bikini area, and specific areas for facial hair.
Following laser hair removal treatments, you can expect to experience both short-term results, as well as long-term results!
After a single laser hair removal session, you will notice that the hair in the area treated will begin to fall out on its own within 2-3 weeks. With each treatment, on average, you can expect to see a 10-20% reduction in hair re-growth. Every individual’s body is different and will consequently have differing results. Some may experience faster hair growth than others, but on average you will see a notable change in the volume of hair, and lengthened hair re-growth cycles. During this time, it is also normal to see the hair growing back thinner and lighter in colour.
To see more permanent and long-lasting results, it will typically take an average of six sessions, although it varies from patient to patient. After completing your series of laser hair removal sessions, you may experience complete smoothness permanently, or an extremely slow hair regrowth cycle–with thinner, lighter hairs.
In terms of laser hair removal success, our Alexandrite Laser is designed for optimal performance on thin hair as well as on all shades of skin, so you can feel confident in trusting Fairview Laser to get the job done in an effective manner!
