Laser Hair Removal – How Does it Work?
The first step to laser hair removal in Ottawa is a consultation with a qualified physician at Concept Medical. Since lasers are very powerful devices, a consultation ensures your optimal results as well as safety.
At Concept Medical in Ottawa, we use a highly advanced laser hair removal system from Sciton® to safely and effectively reduce and eliminate unwanted hair growth anywhere on the body. Unlike some laser hair removal devices, our Sciton® device at Concept Medical in Ottawa is safe on any skin type or colour, and can be used at any time of the year.
Following your consultation, a laser hair removal treatment begins by applying a small amount of gel between your skin and the laser. The laser hair removal hand piece is also chilled using an advanced chilling device to ensure your maximal comfort during your laser hair removal treatment. During each pulse of the laser, many individual hair follicles are targeted. The energy from the colourless laser is transmitted from the laser hair removal hand piece to the hair and down the hair shaft. Laser hair removal works by heating up and damaging the root of the hair follicle to prevent the hair from growing.
During the procedure, patients often feel a mild ‘snap’ sensation with each pulse of the laser hair removal device. However, laser hair removal is very tolerable and comfortable. At Concept Medical in Ottawa, we take every step to ensure your comfort during and after your laser hair removal procedure.
Each laser hair removal session lasts anywhere from 15-60 minutes depending on the area you would like treated, and multiple laser hair removal sessions are usually required for optimal results.
