Laser hair removal is swiftly gaining popularity. With so many benefits, this comes as no surprise. But as more men and women consider the procedure, choosing a qualified provider becomes increasingly important. While laser hair removal can be quite safe and effective, this depends entirely upon choosing a skilled physician, someone with the training and experience to make the most of this powerful technology. You can trust the medical professionals at CosMedics to perform your laser hair removal. They are also skilled and experienced in other advanced treatments such as laser skin rejuvenation. They will care for your health, as well as your appearance.
Laser Hair Removal Basics
Laser hair removal works by sending intense laser energy into the hair follicles. The laser is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair. Any area, except directly around the eyes, can be treated with laser hair removal. This includes underarms, legs, back, bikini line, face, neck, and more.
Laser Hair Removal Treatments
Laser hair removal treatments at our Edmonton practice is quick and easy. Our specific laser system works several times faster than other light-based hair removal systems. A woman’s legs or a man’s back can be treated in under 30 minutes, and smaller areas (such as the underarms, upper lip or bikini line) can be treated in even less time. A series of treatments is required because hair grows in stages and not all hairs will be in an active growth phase during each treatment.
After your initial preparation, a handpiece will be moved over your skin in the targeted area. The handpiece emits light that disables the hair follicles. Most people experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, often described as a slight “snapping” sensation. Most people experience some mild redness and tenderness in the targeted area shortly after treatment *. This does not interfere with normal activities and usually subsides within a day.
