Laser Hair Removal

Print This Page

Laser hair removal is a quick and effective way to remove unwanted facial or body hair without the cost or trouble of painful waxing or shaving. Unlike electrolysis, which for some can be painful or uncomfortable, laser hair removal in Mississauga targets a specific area of the body without damaging the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal treatments are easy and effective, making it a practical option for women and men looking for a permanent hair reduction method.

Laser Hair Removal Procedure

The Apogee Elite Laser by Cynosure is a dual platform laser with an Alexandrite laser, excellent for laser hair removal in light-skinned individuals, and an Nd Yag laser with the capacity for superb laser hair results in all skin types, including people with darker skin tones. All laser hair removal machines work by targeting the pigment in the treated hair follicles, which is most easily targeted when the hair is in its growth phase. Because different hairs are in the growth phase at different times, several treatments are necessary to treat all the hair in an area. A more powerful laser like the Apogee Elite is able to treat more hair more effectively at each treatment, reducing the number of treatments needed compared with weaker lasers found in non-medical settings.

The Apogee Elite has a cooling tip which not only increases patient comfort but also protects the surrounding skin. There is minimal discomfort during treatment, and depending on the area treated it will take 20 minutes to an hour. There may be minor redness or swelling afterward. Treatments are typically scheduled 2 to 4 weeks apart, with a minimum of 5 recommended. Areas treated may include:

  • Upper Lip
  • Bikini Area
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Back
