Laser Hair Removal in Ottawa

Laser hair removal at Concept Medical in Ottawa is a safe, effective, and long-lasting solution for reducing unwanted body and facial hair. Not all laser hair removal devices or providers are the same, so choosing a physician-supervised cosmetic clinic in Ottawa is essential to ensure optimal results and safety.


How Does it Work?

A laser removes hair by targeting the melanin in follicles. This pigment absorbs the light energy and destroys the hair. Hair follicles must be in their growth stage for results, so it is necessary to come back for additional sessions since follicles can be in various phases at different times. At Concept Medical, we offer one of Ottawa’s best laser hair removal methods. We use the new Lutronic Clarity II device, which features two lasers in one – an Alexandrite and Nd:YAG. This technology can treat more skin types and hair colours than traditional methods. It can also cover larger surface areas in a shorter time. There is also no gel, and treatments are very quick.



  • Each session is quick, usually taking no more than an hour, depending on the treatment area.
  • Can decrease ingrown hairs.
  • It is a lasting solution, saving you money in the long run on monthly waxing or razor blades.
  • It is less painful than other methods, like electrolysis.


Who Can Get Laser Hair Removal?

If you are tired of shaving or waxing or simply want an improved appearance or self-image, laser hair removal might be for you. It is a versatile procedure for most body parts, such as your face, underarms, bikini area, back, and legs. It is suitable for any skin type but typically works best on those whose hair is darker than their skin tone because this contrast helps to target the melanin pigment. This treatment is generally not recommended for light hair like blonde, red, or grey. In addition, our clinic avoids doing this procedure near the eyes, on skin with tattoos, or on those who are pregnant.


Pre and Post-Treatment Care

  • Avoid sun exposure and self-tanning for at least a two weeks before your treatment.
  • Shave the area one day before.
  • Do not apply lotions or oils to the area on the day of your visit.

Once the process is complete, we’ll walk you through the aftercare steps:

  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure for at least two weeks and apply SPF 30 or more every two hours if in the sun.
  • Exfoliate gently to speed up hair shedding and prevent ingrown hairs.
  • Clean the treated area carefully with mild soap.
  • Avoid makeup, lotion, or deodorant on the treated area for the first 24 hours until the irritation subsides.

Frequently Asked Questions about Laser Hair Removal

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.

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, any time of year.

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 6-12 treatments to reach their treatment goals.

Laser hair removal can target hair anywhere on the body. Most common areas for laser hair removal in Ottawa include legs, under the arms, bikini line, back and chest.

What to Expect from the Process

The price of our laser hair removal in Ottawa ranges from $75 to $450 per session, depending on the body area. We offer convenient treatment packages of 6 sessions for the price of 5. We will first have a consultation to determine if this treatment is right for you. When it’s time to begin the process, our experienced medical aesthetician will prepare the treatment area. With each pulse, you may feel a snapping sensation from the laser, but this is generally tolerable. It is common to sense a burning smell due to the emitted light energy zapping the hair. The process might take a few minutes or up to an hour. Your skin might be slightly pink afterwards, but this redness usually goes away that same day. Other rare risks are possible, and results can vary. Multiple sessions, ranging from six to twelve are required before seeing optimal results. The number of visits depends on factors like your hair growth stage, treatment area, hair density and colour, age, and hormones. You may notice an immediate decrease in hair growth after your first round. While this treatment is considered long-lasting, you may need touch-ups after a few months or years.
