Laser hair removal is a highly effective and safe procedure for anyone looking to reduce hair body hair and achieve smoother skin surfaces. It’s the go-to alternative to waxing and shaving, providing long-lasting results.
How does laser hair removal work?
This Health Canada-approved treatment uses focused energy to penetrate and damage hair follicles, preventing regrowth. Pulses of light are applied to target areas to achieve permanent hair reduction, over a series of multiple sessions that last anywhere from multiple months to years.
Your doctor will recommend a personalized treatment plan based on your skin tone, hair texture, and desired outcome. Depending on these factors, the duration, price, and number of treatments will vary.
What are the best areas on the body for laser hair removal?
Consider your overall aesthetic goals when deciding where to get laser hair removal on your body, and understand that very delicate skin areas, especially near your eyes, should be avoided. Laser hair removal has excellent outcomes for many patients in the following areas:
- Bikini Lines
How should I prepare for laser hair removal?
Avoid sun exposure, self-tanners, waxing or plucking six weeks prior to treatment. You can continue to shave the area while you wait for treatments. On the day of your appointment, ensure the area is free of any topical products.
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Those who have dark hair and a light complexion benefit the most from laser treatments. Patients with lighter hair may not be ideal candidates for treatment because they lack the pigment required for an effective result, but a consultation with a medical aesthetic doctor will be able to tell you for sure.
