Adios, Unwanted Hair!


In the pursuit of smooth, flawless skin, many of us have tried various methods of hair removal, from waxing to shaving and everything in between. Our Laser Hair Removal is the superior treatment to eliminate unwanted hair, promising smoother skin with minimal effort.

Let’s chat more! what exactly is laser hair removal? Let’s delve into the science behind this transformative beauty treatment.

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes concentrated beams of light (laser) to target pigmentation within the hair follicle. The principle behind it is simple: the laser emits light energy, which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles and inhibiting future hair growth. Perfect to give those follicles a bullseye to zap away! Our office process begins with a consultation with a registered Nurse to determine if laser hair removal is suitable for your skin type and hair colour.


During the procedure, the Nurse will select setting based on your skin and hair type. Our handheld device has a cooling tip before administering short pulses of laser light to the skin. You may experience a sensation such as a snapping of a rubber band or a mild stinging feeling, but many people find the discomfort to be tolerable. The duration of the treatment session depends on the size of the area being treated, with smaller areas such as the upper lip or underarms as short as a 10 minute appointments, while larger areas like the legs or back may require up to an 45 minutes. Multiple sessions are usually needed to achieve the desired results, as hair grows in different stages and the laser is most effective on actively growing hairs. We offer packages for multi session treatments with a discount.


One of the most significant advantages of laser hair treatment is targeting the root of the problem, leading to a significant reduction in hair growth over time. Additionally, it’s a precise treatment, meaning that only the hair follicles are affected, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Talk about a time and money saver! Say goodbye to endless waxing visits or buying razors – laser hair treatment is here for the long haul!

While laser hair treatment is generally considered safe when performed by a trained professional, there are some potential risks and side effects to be aware of. These may include temporary redness, swelling, or discomfort in the treated area, which typically subside within a few hours to a few days. It’s crucial to choose a reputable provider and follow pre- and post-treatment care instructions diligently to minimize the risk of complications. Additionally, it’s essential to manage your expectations regarding the results of laser hair removal. While it can lead to a significant reduction in hair growth, it may not result in complete hair removal (hello hormones!), and maintenance sessions may be required to sustain the results.

Laser hair treatment provides a practical and efficient remedy for the persistent issue of unwanted hair. Through the utilization of light energy, it precisely targets hair follicles at their source, resulting in a smoother skin texture and diminished hair regrowth. Despite the associated risks and necessary precautions, the advantages often surpass the drawbacks. For those seeking a long-term solution to break free from the repetitive routines of shaving, waxing, or plucking, laser hair removal presents a promising option to attain the desired velvety skin texture.
