Laser Hair Removal for Transgender Clients
No longer do you need to worry about endless waxing and shaving to keep away those pesky hairs. Embarrassing stubble, bumps, razor burn, and ingrown hairs are a way of the past when you decide to go with laser.
Laser Hair Removal
If you’re looking to avoid shaving, tweezing, and waxing to remove unwanted hair then laser hair removal is an option worth considering. It one of the most commonly completed cosmetic procedures in Canada and with near unmatched results you can understand why. It works by beaming highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigments in the follicles then absorb the light which destroys the hair. Stop pulling your hair out in frustration and contact us for a free consultation.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Lasers can target small and delicate areas with minor to no irritation.
Each laser pulse can treat many hairs at a time. Small sections like the upper lip can take less than a minute.
Many patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven visits.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe?
Laser Hair removal is generally safe for most people although those with the following are not candidates for laser hair removal:
- Pacemaker or internal defibrillator
- Accutane (or other oral retinoids) within the last 6 months
- History of keloid scarring
- Any abnormal or undiagnosed pigmentations
- Atypical moles or malignancy
- Non-intact skin (ie rash, abrasions, psoriasis, sores, eczema, etc.)
- Laser resurfacing in the treated area within the last 3 months
- Any medical condition involving impairment of skin structures, especially healing
- Poorly controlled Diabetes
- Medication that may cause photosensitivity to light
- Recent chemical or mechanical peel in the treatment area (within 2 weeks)
- Wait 2 weeks before/after injectable or filler procedures in the treatment area
How many treatments are needed?
For laser hair removal, six to eight treatments are needed. However, some individuals may need more based on their genetics (skin colour, hair-thickness, etc.)
For facial treatments, five treatments spaced three to four weeks apart deliver the best results.
How effective is it?
You should expect between 75-90% hair reduction. While occasional touch-ups may be necessary, results are quick and long-lasting.
What does it feel like?
Laser hair removal can feel like a small pinch or snapping sensation. The area can also be iced before treatment to numb the feeling. Most people don’t exhibit any significant pain, although certain skin types may be more sensitive to therapy.
What do I do after the treatment session?
You should avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen SPF 50 to protect the affected area. Until any swelling/redness dissipates, avoid excessive heat from hot tubs, saunas, intense exercise, etc.
What type of technology do you use?
Our laser hair removal uses Intense Pulse Light (IPL). It emits precise doses of light at specific wavelengths when placed on the skin.
