Why Laser Hair Removal?
Let’s face it- shaving and waxing hair anywhere on our bodies is daunting. Every few weeks or even days, we spend time and continuous money and sometimes suffer from stubble, ingrown hairs and razor burn just to have « smooth » skin. For some of us, our thick, dark hairs never seem to go away, waiting to grow immediately after we’ve removed them. These temporary fixes, especially during the summer when we tend to reveal more skin more often, are not lasting solutions.
That’s where laser hair removal comes in. It offers clients a long-lasting, sometimes permanent option for extended hair reduction safely and effectively. If you’ve been longing for silky-smooth skin that lasts and lasts, look no further. This time of year is ideal to get started on getting rid of pesky thick, dark hair once and for all. Most areas of the body can be treated to address any area where there is unwanted hair present.
What is the Process?
Laser Hair Removal is effective at any age. Our clinic uses the Cynosure LHR machine for laser hair treatments. Sessions with this machine are most effective on darker hair with lighter skin types, so patients should keep in mind that darker skin types may not receive effective treatments that are optimized for their skin complexion.
The process involves a concentrated laser that pulses heat which is absorbed by the pigmentation in hairs. The heat is then converted into heat within the hair follicle, damaging or inhibiting the future growth of hair.
Patients have reported temporary irritation and mild discomfort. Pain is most commonly at a bare minimum and tends to lessen with each consecutive session. Because your wellness and satisfaction are our main priorities, our Medispa technicians will provide you with a special cooling system to ensure the most comfort possible. Mild swelling or redness may occur but goes away quickly.

What to Expect
Depending on the area selected for laser hair removal, each session takes between 5 minutes to an hour. Smaller areas like the upper lip or armpits require less time due to the surface area targeted, whereas full legs will take more time. Most patients will require between 3 and 6 sessions, but everyone varies and some clients will need more visits.
You can expect a gradual decrease in the thickness of hair, the quantity of hair and the speed of regrowth even after the first session. Less stubble, rashes and ingrown hairs can be enjoyed at last! Following multiple sessions, fully hairless areas can be enjoyed for months to years. For some, hair will never regrow in those areas again. For others, occasional maintenance sessions may be required in the future.
