Sometimes, plucking, waxing, shaving, and other temporary hair removal solutions just aren’t enough, particularly when you suffer from excess body hair or unwanted hair on any part of your body. Unwanted body hair affects both men and women for a number of reasons, many of them medical or hormonal.
At SpaMedica in Toronto, unwanted hair removal is accomplished using laser energy to permanently remove, eliminate, and reduce the growth of unwanted hair. We combine different devices with the most well-suited wavelengths to optimize your particular unwanted body hair removal process. With a series of treatments designed to remove unwanted hair permanently, patients can take advantage of our advanced laser hair removal treatment programs which are suitable for all skin types and pigments.
Laser energy is used to eliminate and reduce the growth of unwanted hair permanently. At SpaMedica in Toronto, we deploy 14 different lasers in your customized laser hair removal program, ensuring you have the best possible permanent hair reduction and the fewest possible un-responsive hairs. The laser energy is absorbed by melanin in the hair shaft, and the heat then travels to the stem cells in the top and bottom of the shaft, killing the actively growing hair bulbs, and leading to a permanent reduction of excessive body hair.
Dr. Mulholland uses 3 major wavelengths of laser and IPL light to optimize this process. First, the 755 nm Alexandrite lasers (Elite, Gentlelase, GentleMax Pro) are highly effective in treating light skin with dark hair but can be dangerous if used alone in treating tanned or darker skin. Second, the 810 nm diode lasers (Lightsheer, Vectus, Diolaze, Venus Velocity and Soprano), are also great for treating light skin with dark hair but can be used on darker skin with dark hair in some cases as well. Third, the 1064 nm NdYAG, or YAG lasers (Elite, GentleYAG, GentleMax Pro) are the safest at treating patients with dark skin and dark hair.
Our newest laser hair removal device, the TriTon, was co-developed by Dr. Mulholland and Inmode and offers all 3 above-mentioned “best in class” wavelengths in one laser. Most importantly, the TriTon is the only laser in the world that can deliver 2 wavelengths simultaneously to deliver the best possible permanent hair reduction in the world. For light skinned patients with dark hair, the 755 nm Alexandrite and the 810 nm Diode are delivered simultaneously to destroy the hair, while for darker skin types, the 810nm diode and the 1064 n NdYAG are deployed.
