Did you know that Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre was started over 20 years ago by Dr. Martin Braun when he brought the first laser hair removal machine to Canada? Fast forward 20+ years and we are still the “go-to” place for men and women from all over Canada to remove their unwanted hair.
Why Choose Laser Hair Removal Over Alternate Hair Control Methods?
Laser hair removal technology has come a long way over the last 20 years.
Laser hair removal machines today are faster, more comfortable and way more efficient than those that first were on the market in the 1990’s. In fact, Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre has 2 of the premier laser hair removal machines, Fotona® SP Dynamis, available 6 days a week to rid you of your unwanted hair.
The cost, though appears to be more costly than other methods initially, actually works out to much less over a lifetime of waxing and it is way less tedious than shaving every couple of days.
What Areas Can You Treat?
Anywhere! Really! From your nose to your toes and pretty much everything in between (including the famous uni-brow).
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
We are asked this question every day. As most hair grows on a 3-month cycle, new hair is continually popping up. We recommend treating with multiple sessions spaced about 8 weeks apart to ensure that we are not wasting your time or your money treating hair that has already been treated.
Can Any Hair be Treated?
For a hair to be successfully removed it must still have pigmentation as this is how the laser energy passes down the shaft to destroy the follicle. The best reduction results come from hair that is dark or black. Once the hair has turned grey, red or blonde the likelihood of reduction is very slim as there is less pigmentation in the strand.
What do I Need to do to Prepare for my Laser Hair Removal Session?
Shave. Yes, I know it seems strange, but we require that all our laser hair removal clients arrive freshly shaven.
As the laser energy targets the pigmented hair, any hair above the skin’s surface will also be targeted. This increases the possibility of complications and can result in pigmentation and scarring. The goal is to destroy the hair below the skins surface to ensure maximum results with minimal downtime.
Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?
Absolutely, as long as you visit a reputable clinic. Laser hair removal machines are very powerful and require regular maintenance and also highly trained technicians to operate them. At Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre our laser technicians go through rigorous training both in clinic and certifications from the laser company of the machine they are using. Your safety is of paramount importance to us.
As you can see, at Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre we pride ourselves on being a leader in laser hair removal. Please contact our experts for a consultation to discuss your needs and we will be more than happy to customize a treatment for you.
