Palomar pioneered the use of lasers and IPLs for hair removal and is the first company to obtain FDA claim for "Permanent Hair Reduction". Since then, Palomar lasers have been the industry Gold Standard that all others have been compared to, and validated by Palomar's strong patent position. We are one of the first clinics that use its advanced technology in the GTA, so we have the most experienced staff and the greatest number of satisfied patients in the Toronto laser hair removal industry.
The Palomar Nd:YAG laser is developed for hair removal of all skin types, specifically for darker and tanned skin. In addition to its superior efficiency, this laser has built-in cooling system for maximal patient safety and comfort*.
The Palomar StarLux 500 IPL has also been proven in clinical studies to be one of the most efficient systems for permanent hair removal*. Its hand-pieces now perform with increased speed, due to their large spot sizes, and superior efficacy, with patented Photon Recycling and Advanced Contact Cooling technologies. Different spot sizes and concentrations of power can efficiently treat large areas like the back and legs, as well as smaller areas such as the chin, neck, face, underarms and bikini lines.
The light energy delivered by Palomar lasers and IPLs targets only hair follicle pigments, so it's safe for virtually all skin types and hair colors. Specific wavelengths of light can effectively target both finer and coarser hair as well as lighter hair, on all skin types*.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ
How does laser hair removal work?
The system performs the hair removal treatment by emitting laser light or pulsed light into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the base of follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and permanently disables the follicular cells responsible for growing new hair. The minute blood vessels to the hair follicles are also destroyed.
Is laser hair removal safe?
This system is the safest, most effective hair removal system available*. Plus, all laser hair removal technicians at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic are highly trained in the operation of this system. Most people also find the Nd:Yag Laser and Starlux 500 to be significantly more comfortable.
Both finer and coarser hair as well as lighter hair on all skin types can be treated with great results*.
Five minutes to one hour per session, depending on the size of the area targeted. Thanks to its advanced, new technology, the Palomar laser hair removal system works several times faster than other laser hair removal systems. Smaller areas such as the upper lip, underarms, or bikini line can be treated in about 5 minutes. A woman's legs or a man's back can be treated in only about 15 minutes at our laser hair removal clinics!
Due to its increased power and effectiveness, fewer treatments are required. Some clients will benefit from only 2 to 3 treatment sessions. Usually 4 to 7 treatments are sufficient to achieve permanency because of the hair growth cycle.
Quick and easy! After your initial preparation, our certified laser technician will move a wand-like hand-piece over your skin. As the hair shaft is shaven, the heat only targets the hair bulb and does not burn the skin. The laser hair removal treatment is usually less painful than waxing – most people perceive the light as a gentle "snapping" sensation. At the end of procedure, the technician will wipe away any loose hair from your skin, and you're ready to go.
Most people experience some mild redness in the treated area shortly after laser hair removal treatment*. This does not interfere with normal activities. Recovery is immediate or within a day, depending on the size and location of the treatment. In some cases, the redness may last longer, but will still be mild and temporary*.
During the complimentary consultation, your medical esthetician at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic will advise you details on what to do before laser hair removal, but here are some general things to follow: avoid tanning for 4-6 weeks prior to treatment as darker skin is more difficult to treat; don’t pluck, wax or use a depilatory cream for at least 4-6 weeks before treatment (shaving is ok);don't put any skin products (make up, perfumes, moisturizers, deodorants) on prior to treatment.
You can resume your normal activities immediately after the laser hair removal treatment. But for the first 24 hours, avoid the sunlight, exfoliation and tight clothing as these can irritate the treated area. Your hair should not be waxed or tweezed between treatments and for several weeks after the final treatment as this may stimulate hair growth. However, you may shave or trim the area. Makeup and self-tanning creams may also be used as desired.
