It takes longer but it lasts longer

What’s better than running your hand across smooth skin? It’s easier now than ever to get rid of that unwanted hair with laser hair removal by using an intense, pulsating light. It’s an easy procedure, however it is usually done through multiple visits. The laser needs to be applied to the hair follicle when your hair is on its first stage of growth because it’s the only time it  can be effectively treated.

Laser hair removal is done by men and women who want more long-term hair removal results and are tired of waxing and shaving which can cause skin irritation, cuts and even infections. It’s now available regardless of skin colour thanks to technological advancements.

In most cases, we recommend shaving about 2-3 days before the treatment. This ensures your skin  is not irritated when you visit. In some cases, we might recommend your simply trim your hair instead of shaving it completely.  You should avoid plucking your hair because it removes the hair follicle and actually hinders the laser hair removal process.

Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent? 

You shaved yesterday, but this morning you’ve already spotted a new crop of hair growth. This is a problem since you’re planning on hitting up some of Winnipeg’s local bars and restaurants for a night on the town. Whether you’ve been tweezing, waxing, or shaving those pesky problem hairs, by now, you’re probably ready to throw up your hands and accept your hairy fate. But it doesn’t need to be so frustrating. With laser hair removal more popular and inexpensive than ever before, you may be considering it as a great option to get rid of that unwanted hair.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal uses concentrated light energy to kill off hair follicles under the skin. The follicles are what is responsible for producing new strands of hair. If the follicles are destroyed, then hair production is temporarily disabled.

However, not all hair is at the same point in the growth cycle. This is important because it means some hair won’t be damaged by the laser in a single go around and will continue to grow. You’ll need a series of laser treatments to target individual hairs during their growth cycles. Even then, some hair may eventually grow back. However, when the hairs do grow back, they’ll be lighter, finer, and fewer in number. Any regrowth can be managed with touch-up treatments every six to 12 months.

Appropriate Areas for laser hair removal:

  • chest
  • armpits
  • back
  • shoulders
  • neck
  • bikini line
  • face (except for the eye area)
  • feet
  • knees

Is Laser Hair Removal Right For Me?

The type of hair and skin tone you have will affect hair removal. Laser hair removal is most efficient when the laser can focus on a difference type of pigment, such as dark hair growing from light skin. Because the concentrated light is absorbed by the pigment, laser hair removal isn’t very effective on people with blonde or gray hair.

How Should I Take Care of My Skin After The Appointment?

If you do decide to do laser hair removal, add some aftercare to your skin maintenance routine. You should try to stay away from anything that would irritate the skin such as chlorinated pools or saltwater for at least seven days after your treatment. Your skin will be more sensitive, which means sun exposure should be avoided for a few days.

How Long Does Laser Hair Treatment Take? 

Smaller areas, such as the upper lip, can take just minutes while larger areas like the back or chest, may take an hour or longer. If your hair is particularly dense, it might need more than one session.
