SpaMedica Delivers The Best Laser Hair Removal Results in Toronto, Guaranteed!

SpaMedica and Dr. Mulholland have been at the very forefront of Laser Hair Removal in Toronto since 1997 with the introduction of the very first laser hair removal system, the EpiLaser. SpaMedica has strategically acquired every laser wavelength and energy device that causes  permanent hair removal. As there is no one laser that will consistently deliver 100% complete, permanent hair removal, the combination of different systems will give Laser hair removal Toronto patients the best laser hair removal results. Depending upon the skin type of the patient, several of the leading laser wavelengths and devices will be selected and deployed during a 5 treatment package to ensure the best possible permanent laser hair removal results. SpaMedica is so confident in the multiple laser, multiple wavelength approach to laser hair removal that we will provide a guarantee of permanent hair reduction optimization. Using a computer digital densitometer, the SpaMedica team can determine the number of hairs per cm2. We can then numerically calculate the permanent hair removal achieved at the end of the program.  Any patient with Dark Hair and light or dark skin should be able to achieve 75% reduction in hair removal or better. If you do not see a 75% reduction or better, you will receive one or more complimentary treatments until you do.

Common-Asked Questions about Laser Hair Removal

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is the use of laser energy to permanently remove, eliminate and reduce the growth of unwanted hair.  There are various lasers used to optimize the success and permanent reduction of hair growth from areas of unwanted hair. At SpaMedica, we deploy a number of different lasers, all with the best possible wavelengths used in combination to optimize the success and degree of permanent hair removal. When patients are looking for the best permanent laser hair reduction, at competitive prices, they come to SpaMedica. We are the most experienced laser hair removal experts in Toronto and offer the best possible lasers and combination wavelengths with the best possible permanent hair removal results.

Hair Removal for the small areas such as the underarms and bikini area, treatments are performed, in general, every eight to ten weeks and a series of six treatments are usually required to optimize permanent hair reduction. For large zones, such as half legs, full legs or entire backs, five or six treatments are required, every eight to 12 weeks, and each treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes.

How does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Once the right wavelengths and combination of wavelengths have been selected for you, the treatment program can commence. The area is shaved quite short, so only hair stubble is emerging from the skin. The laser applicator is then applied over the area and the laser energy delivered. The laser energy travels down the hair shaft, heating up the hair shaft. The hair shaft acts as a lightning rod for absorption of the light-based energy from the laser. The absorption of the laser energy results in heat and the heat spreads out from the hair shaft, up to the cells called the internal and external root sheath around the bulb, which produce the hair shaft, and the bulge, where the primordial cells that lead to new hair during the telogen (sleeping) and anagen (growing) phases of hair growth. The treatment is fairly quick and after a successful treatment, you will notice the smell of photocoagulation (which is the smell of burnt hair shafts) as well as little red bumps and swellings around the hair shafts. You will notice extrusion of dead hair shafts over the first 7 to 21 days following your treatment.

Hair Removal After care instructions and expectations

It is normal to feel itchy or irritated 24 hours following treatment, and using aloe vera gel or lotion can help soothe your skin. If irritation persists beyond this time period, it is advisable to consult with your specialist to avoid any potential problems in the future. Avoid using products like Nair or plucking new hair growths, as that will make it difficult for the laser to remove that hair during future laser removal treatments.

Maintenance required for Hair Removal Treatment

Using ample amounts of sunscreen is greatly beneficial to maintaining skin health, and should also be used liberally following your laser skin treatment. Avoid extended exposure to sunlight, tanning beds, saunas, hot tubs, hot baths or showers for three days after the procedure.

Laser Hair Removal Side Effects

The most common side effects associated with laser hair removal is skin irritation and pigment changes. With skin irritation, you may experience some temporary redness, swelling, and discomfort that will subside within several hours. Due to the sensitive nature of this procedure, it’s vital to find a doctor and clinic with a strong reputation for providing reliable and professional services. Choosing a doctor that has a proven history will greatly reduce the chance of side effects.

Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a quick and virtually painless procedure that will save you money in the long run. No longer will you have to purchase razors, shaving cream, creams, and waxing kits. Laser hair removal also eliminates and prevents ingrown hairs from developing, and is the perfect option for those that are prone to it.

Additional Procedures to Enhance Hair Removal Results

Most patients who complete the program using multiple laser wavelengths will achieve up to 80% or more permanent hair reduction. However, there’s 20% of the hair that will still grow. This resistant hair, that has been resistant to three or four wavelengths of light and multiple treatments, will generally be fine, wispy, less coarse, lighter and all the hairs will be synchronized into the same growth cycle with a prolongation of the sleeping phase, or telogen phase. Thus, many SpaMedica laser hair removal Toronto program patients join the SpaMedica hair removal club. These are patients who have completed the SpaMedica six-treatment package hair removal program and then can come back anytime when there is regrowth of resistant hair for a low-cost, fast laser removal. The use of a laser in the SpaMedica Laser Hair Removal club is faster, more effective and efficient than waxing, shaving or electrolysis.

Why choose SpaMedica and Dr. Mulholland for my laser hair removal Toronto program?

SpaMedica and Dr. Mulholland have been pioneers in laser hair removal and continue to be at the forefront of the development of new high-speed and efficacious technology. By selecting SpaMedica, you will be assured that you get the best possible experience to minimize any risks or complications.  In addition, you will also get the best possible wavelengths of light to ensure the highest possible permanent reduction available. 

Many of our Toronto Hair Removal patients have gone to other laser hair clinics that are extremely low cost, but are usually far less experienced and generally, only one type of laser wavelength of energy has been deployed.  These patients treated at other clinics often become frustrated as they may have 8, 10, 12, even 16 or more treatments, but they don’t see a tremendous permanent reduction after the first two or three sessions.  The reason for this is because some of the follicles are going to be deeper making it more difficult to access with the wavelength of light, lower energy, or longer pulse duration that has been selected.  When there are no other wavelengths of laser energy or no other lasers are available, you can’t expect to get enhanced permanent reduction.  Thus, most SpaMedica patients have done their research and they realize that at SpaMedica, they get a very affordable laser hair removal program, considering that they get far better permanent reduction with multiple industry leading lasers.  They also get the experience of our expert technicians that have been performing this procedure for many, many years and have a lower risk of adverse effects.

How can I show SpaMedica my concerns and see if I am a suitable candidate?

Toronto laser hair removal patients should simply fill out the appointment request form or “ask a question” form and upload up to 3 photos for the SpaMedica team and Dr Mulholland to review.
