What is Laser
The laser selectively targets your hair follicles and heats them with laser energy. Unlike other treatments, the laser beam treats many hairs at once, making treatment of large areas practical. The laser utilizes a unique computer-guided scanning system that automates the treatment, ensuring your skin is rapidly and evenly treated. The computer places the beam in an optimum pattern for your skin to experience a safe, effective and gentle treatment.
Laser Hair Removal Treatment Areas
Laser hair removal can be used to treat any area of the body, except around the eyes. This includes the:
- Full Face
- Upper Lip
- Bikini Line
Laser Hair Removal Candidates
The ideal candidate for laser hair removal has dark hair. Individuals with fair hair (white, blond or “peach fuzz”) have less or no pigment in the hair follicle and are therefore not good candidates for laser hair removal as the laser is unable to detect and target the melanin in the hair.

Depending on the size of the treatment area, the appointment could take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or so. Afterward, you may have mild redness, swelling or the sensation of a sunburn. For seven to 30 days after treatment, it may appear that your hairs are growing back. This is not new hair growth; actually, the treated hairs are being expelled from the skin. You may shave, but should avoid waxing or tweezing the hairs. Also, be sure to protect the treated area from sun exposure for the best result.
Our ClearScan system employs laser energy that can selectively target microstructures, such as hair follicles. With its targeted absorption by melanin, it gives the optimal balance between safely treating all skin types and effectively removing unwanted hair.

Commonly Asked Questions
Can all skin colours be treated with Laser Hair Removal?
Yes, all skin types from light to dark can be treated.
Can tanned skin be treated?
Yes, tanned skin can be treated safely. However, always inform your physician if you have been tanning, using tanning products, or have experienced prolonged exposure to the sun within the last three weeks. Your physician will then adjust your treatment regimen accordingly to give you the safest and most effective experience.
Can in-grown hair be treated?
Yes, laser energy delivered can be used to remove all types of hair. When “shaving bumps” cover follicles, the laser energy can still penetrate to the hair follicle for a safe and effective treatment.
How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient and your physician will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your physician may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
