Everything You Need To Know About Laser Hair Removal
There is no shortage of beauty treatments and cosmetic procedures out there that help to ensure you look and feel your best. However, if we could recommend only one treatment that is equal parts convenient and time-saving, there’s no better option than laser hair removal from Skintology Health and Wellness Centre.
Curious to know if laser hair removal is the right procedure right for you? Looking for the best laser hair removal in Aurora, Newmarket or nearby? Read on to learn more about this popular beauty treatment.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is a safe and effective hair removal procedure that can replace shaving, waxing, plucking and electrolysis. Using a concentrated beam of light from a laser, laser hair removal will permanently reduce your hair growth, leaving your skin smooth and hair-free.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
At Skintology Health and Wellness Centre, we use a laser with pulse-control technology. This technology absorbs the pigment (melanin) in the hair and then converts the light energy into heat. The heat damages the hair follicle under the skin, effectively preventing hair growth in the future.
What Can You Expect From Laser Hair Removal?
Expectations surrounding laser hair removal are often misunderstood, so we would like to make one thing clear right away: One laser hair removal treatment will not lead to permanent hair loss in the treated area.
We have found that it can take anywhere from 6-8 sessions, with time spaced out between sessions, to achieve optimal results. Also, it’s important to note that the hair won’t immediately fall off. Instead, the hair will shed throughout a couple of days.
Also, even with multiple sessions, results will vary on an individual basis — meaning some clients may require more sessions, while some may need less.
The most significant factor that will help determine your results is the contrast between your skin pigment and your hair. The more contrast that exists between your hair and your skin tone, the more likely you will achieve optimal results.
How long your session lasts will be dependent on the treatment area. For instance, smaller areas (like the upper lip) might require only a 5-minute session, while a more substantial area like your legs could take up to 60 minutes. In addition, fewer overall treatments are necessary when dealing with those smaller areas.
On occasion, follow-up treatments may be necessary to remain hair-free. Having said that, with our skilled technicians and revolutionary technology, you’ll likely experience results that will leave you hair-free for years to come.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
At Skintology Health and Wellness Centre, our laser hair removal is virtually pain-free and very safe.
Unlike many other clinics, our medical-grade laser is safe to use on any skin type.
The only side effects that you may experience after your treatment can include some slight redness and swelling at the treatment site. Still, these symptoms usually disappear within hours of your procedure. You will be happy to hear that after you leave our office, you can resume regular day-to-day activities with no downtime.
On What Parts of My Body Can I Get Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is possible on almost all body parts where hair grows.
The only exception to this is on body parts where tattoos are present, or on the eyelid/surrounding area (you will need to wear protective eyewear during your treatment, making around the eyes impossible to treat).
Most Popular Treatment Areas for Laser Hair Removal:
- Upper lip
- Bikini line
How To Prepare For Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment
As mentioned, Laser Hair Removal at Skintology Health and Wellness Centre is safe and virtually pain-free. However, you can do some simple things before your appointment to ensure optimal results and smooth sailing during your appointment.
First, we recommend staying out of the sun as much as possible before your appointment. This will help prevent a tan. As mentioned earlier, a contrast between your hair and skin tone is optimal for the best results, which means you should avoid using sunless tanners.
We also recommend avoiding waxing or plucking 4-6 weeks before your appointment. These activities damage the hair follicle and make the treatment less effective.
Lastly, while we don’t recommend waxing, we do recommend shaving and light trimming before your treatment. Waxing should be avoided because it damages the hair follicle beneath the skin’s surface, but surface hairs need to be removed because they can burn from the laser, leading to skin damage.
Once you book your appointment, we will be sure to go over everything to ensure that you are appropriately prepared for your treatment.
