In the past, laser hair removal was particularly effective in women and men who had light skin with dark hair. The lasers used for hair removal targeted melanin in the skin in order to destroy the hair follicle. The melanin is heated in the targeted area that the hair is being removed from, while the surrounding skin remains untouched. Then the laser energy is absorbed by dark material in the skin (i.e. melanin).
New laser systems send intense laser energy into the hair follicles. The laser is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and is then converted to heat. This heat then loosens the hair and stops new hair growth cells. While light skin and dark hair is the ideal combination for an Edmonton laser hair removal treatment, new advances in laser hair removal allow for even dark-skinned patients to enjoy the benefits of the treatment.
Laser hair removal can target hair on different parts of the body including:
- Bikini Line

As many of you know, there are several different types of hair removal methods, all with different benefits and drawbacks. Because there are so many different methods available, you might be wondering which method is the best for you.
To start, most women and men try shaving and waxing, as they are two of the most common hair removal methods. The benefits of these methods are that they are cheap and relatively quick. While waxing may sometimes be slightly painful, overall, these are great hair removal methods when there is little hair in the area and only needs temporary removal.
One major drawback to shaving and waxing is that they are only temporary, and therefore are not good options for those who desire a more permanent or long-term solution. In this case, laser hair removal in Edmonton can help women and men remove large areas of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal works by directing a laser to a targeted area uses pulses of light to destroy the hair follicle. Although this method is effective, typically multiple sessions are required for long-term hair removal.
While there certainly are other methods of hair removal, shaving, waxing, and laser hair removal are among the most popular. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide which method is the right one for you.
