ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Throughout a lifetime, a woman can spend almost 72 days shaving her legs. Most women can only retain smoothness after shaving for about 3 days. Needless to say, it’s time to consider the laser!

Our Medical Director, Dr. Braun, brought Laser Hair Removal to Vancouver in 1996 and we have been excelling in reducing the hair of Vancouverites ever since. With the most current technology, we can help you be as hair-free as possible with little to no effort – other than coming in to see us!

We have become the “go-to” place for safe and effective laser hair removal. Both men and women from West Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, Surrey, Delta and throughout all of British Columbia come to us for laser hair removal services. Our technicians have advanced training in medical aesthetics and are overseen by Dr. Braun to ensure optimal safety during our laser hair removal treatments.

Benefits

  • Safe, effective, no downtime
  • An average reduction of 80% or more hair
  • Any remaining body hair becomes finer and softer
  • Safe for all skin types
  • The “in motion” method minimizes pain and discomfort

Smaller areas may require a “stamping” method that can feel more sensitive

HOW IT WORKS

We use the Alma Soprano Platinum & Titanium system for reducing unwanted hair. This technology is safe to use on all skin types. The Alma Soprano Platinum combines three laser wavelengths to target various tissue depths and anatomical structures within the hair follicle. This approach helps avoid injury to surrounding tissues. The comprehensive treatment is usually well-tolerated and has a proven safety record, making it the best choice for laser hair removal in Vancouver.

Dr. Braun pioneered the way laser hair reduction was performed by making the treatment a much more comfortable experience. In 2009, he published the world’s first study demonstrating that multiple passes with lower energy are just as effective as the traditional high-energy, single-pass method that was previously practiced.

Dr. Braun is committed to maximizing your comfort without sacrificing your satisfaction.

FAQs

How many treatments do I need to be hair free? 

As the hair follicle grows in stages, hair reduction is a process that requires regular treatments spaced approximately 6 to 8 weeks apart. The amount of laser hair reduction depends largely on the patient’s skin and hair type.

How does laser hair reduction work? 

The Nd:YAG Laser emits light at a specific wave length that is absorbed by pigment (colour) in the hairs’ follicle, which heats and destroys the follicle so that it can not grow another hair. The lighter the skin and the darker the hair, generally, the greater the reduction.

Is Soprano laser hair removal painful?

The Soprano laser hair removal is generally well-tolerated, but we understand that every patient has a different tolerance for discomfort. To ensure the most comfortable experience possible, we offer measures should you require them, such as numbing cream.

I just waxed my upper lip, can I still have a laser hair reduction treatment? 

When hair is in the dormant phase, it has very little pigmentation, which makes it insufficient to absorb the light energy needed to destroy the follicle. Only the actively growing hair can be penetrated, so we recommend waiting 4 – 6 weeks in between each laser hair reduction treatment and after any waxing or plucking treatment to ensure optimal results.
