Laser Hair Removal

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure which uses a a concentrated beam of light to destroy unwanted hair follicles. Laser is absorbed by pigment, which in hair removal treatment, is the melanin inside hair follicles. The light energy or laser is converted to heat, which damages and finally destroys the hair follicle. This damage prevents or delays future hair growth.

Although laser hair removal in West Vancouver effectively delays hair growth for long period of time, it usually does not result in permanent hair removal. Depending on the area, type of hair, density, and skin type, multiple treatments are required. Also, maintenance treatments once every six months are recommended.

Post-treatment Guidelines

  • Avoid direct sun exposure 48 hours after your treatment. Apply broad spectrum, SPF 40 sunscreen

  • Avoid other hair removal methods, such as plucking, waxing and electrolysis

  • Avoid taking blood thinning medication before the treatment

  • Shaving and trimming is recommended the day before laser treatment

Clients should know that hairs do not fall out immediately. The shedding will happen over period of days to weeks. This may look like continued hair growth. Therefore, a series of treatments is recommended for the most effective results.
