Laser Hair Removal
If you’re tired of shaving or waxing only to have hair grow back again and again, no need to worry, unwanted hair doesn’t have to stay with you for life! With our state-of-the-art laser systems, we offer the most effective and comfortable laser hair removal.
Palomar pioneered the use of lasers and IPLs for hair removal, and is the first company to obtain FDA claim for “Permanent Hair Reduction”. Palomar lasers have since been the industry Gold Standard confirmed by Palomar’s strong patent. We are one of the first clinics that use its advanced technology in the GTA, and have the most experienced staff, greatest number of happy patients in the Toronto laser hair removal industry.
Advanced Laser Hair Removal
The Palomar Nd:YAG laser is great for hair removal on all skin types, specifically for darker and tanned skin. Also, to add to its superior efficiency, this laser has a built-in cooling system for top patient safety and comfort.
The Palomar StarLux 500 IPL has also been proven in clinical studies to be one of the most efficient laser hair removal systems. Its hand-pieces perform with high speed – due to their large spot sizes, top efficacy, patented Photon Recycling, and Advanced Contact Cooling technologies. Different spot sizes and focus of power are useful for hair removal on 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 given by Palomar lasers and IPLs targets only hair follicle pigments, so they’re safe for all skin types and hair colors. Distinct 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 pigment in the follicle base absorbs the light, and converts it to heat. The heat then loosens the hair, disabling the follicle cells subject to new hair growth. 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 system techniques. Most people also find the Nd:YAG laser and StarLux 500 to be much more comfortable.
What type of hair and skin can this system treat?
This laser hair removal system can treat both fine and coarse hair, as well as lighter hair on all skin types.
How long does the laser hair removal procedure take?
Five minutes to one hour per session; as per the size of the targeted area. Thanks to its advanced, new technology, the Palomar laser hair removal system works several times faster than others. We can treat smaller areas such as the upper lip, underarms, or bikini line in about 5 minutes; as well as a woman’s legs or a man’s back in only 15 minutes!
How many treatments do I need?
Due to its increased power and effectiveness, you don’t require many treatments. Some clients will gain from only 2 to 3 treatment sessions. But, 4 to 7 treatments are most often needed to achieve permanency, because of the hair growth cycle.
What are the sessions like?
Our certified laser technician will move a wand-like hand-piece over your skin. Because we shave the hair shaft, the heat only targets the hair bulb and does not burn the skin. The laser hair removal treatment is most often less painful than waxing. Most people perceive the light as a gentle “snapping” feeling. At the end of the treatment, the technician will wipe away any loose hair from your skin, and you’re ready to go.
What should people expect from the laser hair removal?
Most people notice some mild redness in the treated area shortly after laser hair removal treatment. This does not hinder 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.
Do I need prepare the area before the treatment?
During the consultation, your specialist at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic will advise you on what to do before laser hair removal. Here are some basic tips 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 apply any skin products (make up, perfumes, moisturizers, deodorants) prior to treatment.
Are there restrictions after the treatments?
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 was or tweeze between treatments, and for several weeks after the final treatment, as this may stimulate hair growth. However, you may shave or trim the area, and apply makeup and self-tanning creams as desired.
