Laser Hair Removal

Say goodbye to shaving once and for all. Traditional methods of hair removal such as tweezing, shaving, or waxing can be painful, messy, and costly over time. Laser hair removal can target virtually any area you’d like to eliminate unwanted hair. Common areas to treat include legs, bikini, underarms, back, upper lip, and chin. Consultation is recommended to determine a plan tailored for your skin type and goals.

Get The Facts

Our state-of-the-art Laser Hair Removal devices permanently reduce hair with a series of treatments. With multiple wavelengths, we can efficiently treat all areas of the body, and tailor treatments for all skin types. The hair is reduced by wavelengths of energy that target the colour and depth of the hair follicle. The energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, destroying  the “root”. Over several days, the hair follicles will fall out/shed from the body. An average of six to ten treatments are recommended for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ What is the Difference Between SKIN Clinics Laser Hair Removal, BBL, and IPL hair removal?

At SKIN Clinics we only use dedicated laser devices such as Nd: YAG and Diode lasers to perform hair removal as it is significantly more effective and safe in comparison to non-laser-based devices such as BBL or IPL.

+ How permanent is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal can delay hair regrowth for several years. Some people may require touch-up appointments. Laser hair reduction is the goal, reducing how much grows back, and how often, along with the thickness of the hair.

+ Is getting Laser Hair Removal worth it?

If you add up the cost of razors and waxing/sugaring sessions over time, laser hair removal is worth it. Plus, it keeps you away from the nuisances of traditional hair removal methods such as ingrown hair and pigmentation.

+ How long does a Laser Hair Removal appointment take?

Depending on the size of the treated area, each session can take up to 60 minutes.

+ Can laser hair removal treatment work on any gender?

Yes! Laser hair removal can be used on any any gender. See our laser hair removal for men page.

+ Is there any downtime after the treatment?

Laser hair removal typically has no downtime, and you can resume your daily activities immediately after the session. You may experience slight redness or sensitivity in the treated area, but this usually subsides within a few hours.
