What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal uses highly concentrated beams of laser light directed at the hair follicle (root). The laser heat evaporates the nutrient supply to the hair and begins to destroy the hair root.
At Skin Revival, we only use gold-standard machines that have been clinically proven to reduce unwanted hair. With three different technologies, we are able to offer our clients the best treatment based on their skin type and hair color. Proving laser hair removal Ottawa to effectively treatments available for ALL skin types.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
The laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicle and is therefore not effective on light or white-colored hair. Hair goes through 3 phases of growth: anagen (growth phase), telogen (resting phase) and catagen (shedding phase). In order for the root to be effectively destroyed, the hair must be in the anagen or growth phase. Since not all hairs are in the growth stage at any given time, multiple sessions are required.
Typically, it takes about 2 to 3 weeks for your body to naturally shed the hairs which were effectively treated in the anagen stage, resulting in less hair with each consecutive treatment.
How Many Sessions Will it Take?
Unfortunately there is no specific answer to this. However, based on our experience and in-house success rate, we generally recommend a minimum of 6 to 10 sessions for maximum hair reduction. This is seen through a steady decrease of 10+% of hair per session. You may always do electrolysis after laser hair removal to treat any remaining hairs.
How Often Will My Appointments Be?
At the start, appointments will be anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks, depending on the growth and body part. After a while you will not notice any growth during this time frame, and appointments will begin to spread further apart as we wait for re-growth.
Will All My Hair Be Gone?
No. Laser hair removal is considered permanent hair reduction, but no hair removal method will remove 100% of all hairs. Once a series is complete, you will be left with some small vellus (baby hairs) as well as some stubborn hair. A successful reduction with laser is 80%. Our body is made up of about 10% vellus hair leaving approximately 10% of stubborn, slow growing hairs. These hairs will be significantly thinner and lighter in color but may still need some attending to.
Will It Hurt?
Although laser is not meant to be painful, each person’s perception of pain is different. We want you to be comfortable, and will always adjust our treatments accordingly. It is completely normal to experience mild heat and a snapping sensation.
Once I Am Done, Is There Any Maintenance Required?
Our bodies are constantly changing, so we do recommend maintenance treatments in order to maximize your hair reduction. Once a series is complete, we suggest a follow-up after six months and maintenance once a year (unless re-growth is noticed earlier). Pregnancy and menopause can trigger new growth. If you notice re-growth kindly book a follow up to have the hair assessed.
Is Package Pricing Available?
We do offer discounts based on number of treatments or number of areas being treated. A full customized quote will be given during your consultation.
During this initial consultation, a trained technician will evaluate your hair, perform a test patch and quote you on a price so that you too can be hair-free. The consult fee is applied to any package should you decide to proceed with us. This fee is taken for technical assessment and test patch, however we are always happy to answer any questions you may have or chat informally about our laser hair removal Ottawa services.
