Background

Each of your hair follicles is in one of 3 stages of growth at any given time. The "active growth" (anagen) phase, "regressive" (categen) phase, and "resting" (telogen) phase.

The laser is most effective at disabling "actively growing" hairs during treatment. It is during the anagen that the hair shaft contains the greatest abundance of melanin, the target of the laser light. The length of the growth cycles also varies slightly by body area. Your treatment plan will be customized to obtain optimal results.

Am I a candidate for laser hair removal?

Both men and women of all skin colors can now get laser hair removal almost everywhere on their bodies to have unwanted hair removed. At our centre, it is commonly done on hairline, eyebrow, top of the nose, lip, chin, ear lobe, shoulders, back, underarm, abdomen, buttocks, brazilian, bikini lines, thighs, face, neck, breast, arms, legs, hands, and toes.

What does it feel like?

Each pulse, which lasts less than a second, produces a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a quick, light pinch.

Why is the use of lasers preferred for hair removal?

Traditional hair removal techniques, such as shaving, plucking and waxing, provide only temporary hair removal. Until now, the only long-lasting hair removal solution has been electrolysis, which is time-consuming and is usually limited to small areas as each hair is treated individually. Laser hair removal is non-invasive, and safely removes unwanted body hair without damaging the delicate pores and structures of the skin. Facial and bikini area sessions are usually completed very efficiently. For example, laser on the bikini area takes less than 3 minutes; legs and larger areas can take longer. One significant advantage of laser hair removal treatment is that it affects a large number of hair follicles at once resulting in quick, more permanent results. As a general rule, several treatments will be required and you can expect to see a 10% - 30% reduction in hair growth after every treatment depending on the person.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need and How Far Apart are They Scheduled?

Most people need at least 6-8 initial treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart. This is because hair grows in 3 phases and is killed in the first "anagen" active growing phase. Several treatments are needed to target ALL hair in the active growth phase. Approximately 4-8 weeks after every treatment, additional treatment is required to eliminate the hairs that came out of the dormant phase and are now active. After 6-8 treatments or so, patients should experience a considerable percentage of hair reduction. Depending upon hair type and genetic factors, some clients may require additional treatments beyond these initial treatments. If it seems like the treatments are not working after 6-8 treatments, patients should look into possible underlying reasons.

What should I expect during the treatment?

During the procedure, the deep skin layers are gradually heated, while the skin surface remains around 40o C(hot shower temperature). Your skin temperature will be constantly monitored. Depending on the size of the treated area, treatment may take between 1 - 20 minutes. For instance around 1 minute for a small area while up to 20 minutes for a large area. The treatment is relaxing, but with little pain.
