If you're not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in Canada. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light which destroys the hair.
What are the Benefits of Laser Hair Removal?
Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. The benefits of laser hair removal include:
- Precision - Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
- Speed - Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
- Predictability - Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
- Time Savings - After completing your laser hair removal treatments you will enjoy smooth skin and will no longer have to waste valuable time shaving or waiting for hair growth or weeks to wax.
