Laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment for hair on the body as well as areas on the face.

Laser hair removal treatments at Concept Medical begin with a detailed consultation with one of our healthcare professionals. Following your consultation, our medical esthetician will use a laser beam targeted towards the desired area. This strong laser beam specifically damages hair at the follicle, preventing future hair growth.

While almost anyone can undergo laser hair removal in Ottawa, treatment is most effective for patients with medium to dark colour hair.
