Laser Hair Removal

Just imagine not having to tweeze, wax, shave or endure the long, painful hours of electrolysis again! At Bellair Laser Clinic, we provide laser hair removal in Toronto with the Lightsheer and Coolglide laser making this a reality for you! Men and women of ALL SKIN TYPES are now able to eliminate unwanted facial and body hair rapidly, safely and effectively with laser hair removal.

Lightsheer and Coolglide Laser For Hair Removal

The Lightsheer laser and Coolglide for hair removal are recognized as the "Gold Standard" in the industry. The Lightsheer system was specifically designed from the ground up for effective laser hair removal. Its patented chilltip technology provides continuous contact cooling of the epidermis for maximal patient safety and comfort. The Lightsheer is best for laser hair removal of light to moderately pigmented skin. The Coolglide Laser penetrates deeper therefore, bypassing pigment in the skin. By going deeper the treatment is safer for darker skin types.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal removes unwanted hair permanently by targeting and damaging the root of the hair. The laser itself is attracted to pigment or colour. Assuming there is a good contrast between the skin and the hair, the laser damages the root and leaves behind a small stem. Over the next 2-3 weeks, it will appear as if the hairs are growing when actually the skin is naturally pushing this stem up and out. If you were to pull at these hairs with your fingers (not tweezers) 2-3 weeks after the treatment these hairs slide out with no resistance at all. Once these hairs fall out there will be a period where there is very little hair. With a new cycle of hair growth approximately 6 to 8 weeks for the body and 4 to 6 weeks for the face, you would be coming in for your next treatment.

 

The reason why you would require more than one treatment is there are different cycles of hair growth. Ideally, we want to be able to attack the hair during the active stage of hair growth (anagen stage) which is when the hair follicle has a full root. Because we don't know which hairs are in right stage at one time, that is the only reason why you would need more than one treatment. Normally 5-8 treatments are required for best results.

 

Popular treatment areas include underarms, legs, the bikini area, the upperlip, chin, and men's backs and shoulders to mention a few. Laser hair removal generally works best for areas where the hair is dark and/or coarse. The number of laser hair removal treatments varies based on ones ethnic background or skin type as well as the area treated.

We recommend coming in for a complimentary consultation to give you realistic expectations and to determine whether you are in fact a good candidate for this popular procedure. There is absolutely no obligation with the complimentary consultation.

NOTE: Individual Results May Vary

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Hair grows in continuous cycles. The anagen or growth phase of hair contains the largest amounts of melanin and this phase is the laser's target. From scientific studies we understand that any area contains a maximum of 20-30% of anagen hairs at one time, thus, these anagen hairs are affected each treatment. Most clients will require a minimum of 5 treatments. Repeated sessions are necessary. Finer hair and dark skin clients may require 6-8 treatments. If you suffer from a hormone imbalance your treatments may be ongoing. To have effective treatments it is imperative that they be sequenced. Every client's expectations of hair loss are different. Some may be happy with 50-60% loss and may want to discontinue and others will want to continue until they reach their maximum loss of 80-95%.
After a treatment the skin may be red and bumpy. This is absolutely normal. Post treatment, we recommend protecting the area from the sun to avoid any additional heat to the area, as well as avoiding activities such as exercise, saunas, and other activities which may irritate the area or induce heat for 24-48 hours immediately after treatment. The area should be moisturized with a soothing cream and cleansed with a mild soap as advised by our laser technicians.
Try to avoid sun exposure. Hair can be more aggressively treated without a fresh tan. Having hair is essential to having a successful treatment. You can not wax, tweeze, thread or have electrolysis for 4 weeks before a treatment. The best way to manage hair before is to shave, trim, or use cream depilatories. The day of your treatment the hair will need to be freshly shaved.
The laser will not create ingrown hairs. If you suffer from them the laser will produce an effective treatment to clear the ingrown hairs.
