For those looking to maintain a flawless hair-free look, shaving, and waxing have been their go-to for as long as they can remember! But with this high effort commitment to non-permanent results, this often leaves people searching for more permanent options.
Enter laser hair removal.
Since 1997, SpaMedica has been offering laser hair removal, and it is one of the first medical clinics in Toronto to offer this service.
With decades of experience, our clinic has helped develop lasers to reduce hair growth permanently. This has allowed us to test the safety and efficacy of many laser hair removal devices, ultimately choosing the best laser hair removal devices for each patient’s unique needs.
In this curated blog post, we will talk about what laser hair removal is, and if it’s worth the investment.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an advanced cosmetic procedure designed to effectively eliminate unwanted hair from various body areas. Unlike temporary methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking, laser hair removal offers a long-lasting solution for hair reduction or removal.
The pigment (melanin) in the hair absorbs the laser beam, converting the light energy into heat. This heat targets and damages the hair follicles, stopping their ability to grow new hair.
While laser hair removal can delay hair regrowth, achieving permanent hair removal typically requires multiple treatment sessions. Initial hair removal and subsequent maintenance treatments are often necessary to achieve optimal results.
Below is an illustrative diagram highlighting the areas we can treat with laser hair removal:
SpaMedica’s Advanced Laser Device
Efficacy and safety can vary among laser hair removal devices and protocols. In the case of older devices, the focus tends to be on targeting the skin’s melanin rather than directly addressing the hair follicle.
Consequently, this approach can result in slower progress and increased risks, particularly for individuals with darker skin tones in the Fitzpatrick scale (Fitzpatrick IV to VI). So it can depend on skin types, as well as the part of the body that’s the treatment area.
Our clinic offers Triton InMode, the world’s first multi-wavelength hair removal laser, which targets the hair follicle in its different stages while leaving the skin unharmed. This allows us to safely treat Fitzpatricks I to VI, while also making it cost-effective with fewer sessions needed to achieve the best results.
Is Laser Hair Removal Worth the Investment?
Laser hair removal is often perceived as expensive. However, individuals may be surprised to discover that it can save you money and time compared to alternative methods like waxing or shaving.
Here are the added benefits of laser hair removal:
- Experience the luxury of silky-smooth skin
- Bid farewell to the nuisance of ingrown hairs
- Enjoy long-term savings and a worthy investment
- Permanent and long-lasting results
- Minimal upkeep as you may only need to book a touch-up once or twice a year, every five or even ten years!
