If you have questions like, why is laser treatment best for unwanted facial hair removal? Here is the reason; laser hair removal treatment uses a non-invasive treatment which doesn’t cause the affected area to get irritated or cause redness like other methods of hair removal. Laser hair removal uses laser light to target the pigment in a hair follicle. The absorption of the light by the pigments causes the follicle to become damaged stunting the hairs’ inability to grow back. Therefore, it gives a long-term, permanent result. The laser targets melanin hair follicles which result in the selective destruction of the hair structure. More about our service on laser hair treatment; the cool glide (ND: YAG) laser family by Cutera Laser Company delivers high power long pulse (1064nm energy) using a hand-piece that also functions by cooling the skin through contact cooling. It is a medical grade/FDA approved device that is designed to be safe when used by trained professionals. For stable, long-term or permanent hair removal or reduction, the cool glide is the optimal best. However good the cool glide package is, there are also steps one needs to take and appointments to make to guarantee a long-lasting permanent result. For example; you will need to go in regularly every four to six weeks for fresh treatments to keep seeing permanent smooth results but along the way, since the laser kills 10% of the hair follicles with each appointment you will eventually need to undergo six to eight laser treatments to see significant result. If you have thick dark hair and light skin, you may lose hope thinking no treatment can help you but fortunately you are a perfect candidate for the laser hair removal treatment as it makes it easy for the laser to detect the hair follicle. A hair color that is similar to the skin color makes it harder for the laser to identify and detect the hair follicle. You can come in for a number of things ranging from chin laser hair removal, Facial laser hair removal, upper lip laser hair removal, under arms laser hair removal etc. even if you do not have the criteria to be called the perfect candidate as stated above, the laser should be able to detect a decent number of follicles every time you come in to Nell Laser Clinic in Toronto. However broad our services offered are, there are still areas on the body that cannot be treated by laser hair removal treatment, for example, we cannot treat under the eyebrows but we can take care of the space in between them. The nose and inside of the ears which is often times requested by men cannot be done by us, but every other place where laser hair removal treatment can be required, we can do. It is also highly advisable to disclose any medical history you may have which includes what medication you are currently taking before you begin your first laser hair removal treatment because it has been proven to have a significant effect on determining whether the procedure is right for you or not. As stated above, laser hair removal treatment is not for everyone but it has proven to be of significant advantage to people who try it.
Often times we are asked questions on if the treatment is permanent and while we sometimes encounter dominant hair follicles that are resilient and unyielding under laser treatment, patients with dominant hair follicles move closer to 75-80% chance of being hair free upon their 6-8 treatments even if they appear 100% hair free at the time. Hormone changes can also affect the results of laser treatment but whatever situation anyone is we can honestly say that most clients are pleased with Facial laser hair removal and body hair removal results.

For many people, hair removal is a dreaded and time consuming daily chore. Traditional methods only offer short term results and involve repeated waxing, tweezing and shaving, which also leaves behind unsightly bumps, nicks and ingrown hairs. However, technological advancements within the last decade have produced a hair removal system that eliminates all of these inconveniences.

Laser hair removal has become one of the most popular methods used to rid the body of unwanted hair. The appeal stems from its effectiveness, efficiency and convenience. It can be performed virtually anywhere on the body where hair growth is unwanted. Another reason for its popularity is that laser hair removal can result in the permanent reduction of hair.

The benefits of laser hair removal are clear but you still have some unanswered question? This is very common so we’ve included a Q&A section based on popular client inquiries:

Q: How many sessions will I need?
A: Every body part has a different hair growth cycle and the time of the growth cycles can vary from 4 to 12 weeks, depending on the area of focus. After a couple of treatments, clients typically experience a significant reduction in hair along with an overall slower growth pattern. You can expect to see an average of 10 to 15 percent hair reduction after each session. An average of eight sessions are required for maximum hair reduction. It is important to keep in mind that the number of sessions you will need depends on many factors, including areas of the body being treated, skin colour, coarseness of hair, sex, hormones and any underlying health conditions.
