Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal at Concept Medical in Ottawa is a safe and effective solution for reducing unwanted body and facial hair. Results are longer lasting than traditional hair removal techniques such as shaving, waxing, or tweezing. Laser hair removal also takes less time and is less painful than electrolysis. Not all laser hair removal devices or providers are created equally, and it is important to choose a cosmetic clinic in Ottawa that is physician supervised to ensure your optimal results and safety.
WHAT DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL INVOLVE?
Following your consultation, our trained medical aesthetician will apply a small amount of cool gel to the treatment area. A specific laser that targets hair is then used over the desired skin. During your laser hair removal treatment you may feel a slight stinging sensation. In Ottawa, laser hair removal is very well tolerated and no anesthetic is required. Multiple laser hair removal sessions are usually required for optimal results.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?
Following your laser hair removal treatment, you may notice that your skin is slightly pink, which usually resolves within minutes to hours. Following laser hair removal treatments patients notice a decrease in hair growth. All laser hair removal treatments in Ottawa require multiple sessions for optimal results.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT SAFE?
Laser hair removal at Concept Medical in Ottawa has been approved for permanent hair reduction on all skin types, including fair, olive, tanned, and dark skin types. However, prior to any treatment, you are advised to meet with our medical staff to discuss and understand your particular needs and the potential risks and benefits of laser treatment.
CAN ANYONE HAVE LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?
Laser hair removal treatments are effective for individuals of any age, gender, and skin colour. Light hair such as blonde, red, and grey hair generally does not respond well to laser hair removal. At Concept Medical in Ottawa, our advanced laser technology allows us to safely and effectively treat all skin types, including dark and tanned skin anytime of year.
WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS OF LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal treatments impair the growth of hair from the follicles during their active growth stage. Since not all hair is in the active stage at the same time, repeat treatments are usually necessary to achieve the results you desire. Factors such as hair density, hair colour, age, and hormones may affect your treatment results. Most patients require between three and eight treatments to reach their treatment goals.
WHAT PARTS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED WITH LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal can target hair anywhere on the body. Most common areas for laser hair removal in Ottawa include legs, under the arms, and bikini line in women, and the back and chest in men.
