Laser Hair Removal
Just imagine the freedom it would bring to your life if you never had to shave again! That’s what happens when you have laser hair removal. No more messy depilatory creams, razors, or electrolysis. Advanced laser technology has changed the hair removal process to a fast, fairly comfortable, safe and lasting solution to unwanted hair on virtually any part of the body. At the ottawa laser clinic we use the Light Sheer Duet which is now the “gold standard” of lasers for hair removal in the industry. Our clients are simply amazed with the results. F.D.A. approved for long term permanent reduction.
Laser Hair Removal FAQ
How Does the Laser Work?
The Light Sheer Diode targets the melanin in the hair follicle of a growing hair which basically heats it up and destroys the follicle preventing further growth. As hair grows in cycles this usually takes 4–7 treatments, with most people losing over 90% of the hair within 5 treatments.
Does it Hurt?
Most clients describe the sensation similar to an elastic band snap, or even a needle insertion but is usually very well tolerated. Topical numbing creams are available for the more delicate areas if necessary. The Light Sheer has a built in cooling mechanism which cools the skin prior, parallel and post treatment. The Ottawa Laser Clinic also offers an additional cooling device to ensure maximum comfort during the procedure.
How Long Do I Have to Wait Between Appointments?
This depends on the area being treated and your personal growth cycle. Generally between 5–8 weeks.
Is The Treatment Safe?
The technician invites you to do a patch test first before any actual treatment is performed. This ensures the correct parameters are chosen depending on your skin and hair type. The penetration of the laser is only 3–5 mm into the surface of the skin so is actually very superficial. The skin will be initially pink and a little bumpy but that usually fades away quite rapidly within a day or two. The Light Sheer Diode is F.D.A. approved and our professionals are certified laser technicians.
Which skin Types can be treated?
With the Light Sheer technology at the ottawa laser clinic all skin types can now be treated safely as this machine has the capacity to treat dark skin as well as the very fair.
How Long are the Treatment Sessions?
This depends on both the density of the hair as well as the area of the body being treated. Typically an upper lip may only take a few minutes whereas a bikini maybe 30 mins. Obviously the legs with a larger surface area will take longer. This is all discussed in detail at the free consultation.
