ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Did you know that over the course of a lifetime, a woman can spend almost 72 days shaving her legs? What’s even more absurd is most women only retain smoothness after shaving for about 3 days – it’s definitely time for the laser!

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 for men and women from West Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, Surrey and Delta and throughout all of British Columbia. Our technicians have advanced training in medical aesthetics and are overseen by our Medical Director, Dr. Martin Braun to ensure optimal safety during our laser hair removal treatments.

Benefits

  • Safe, effective, no downtime
  • Relatively painless using multiple passes with lower energy method
  • An average reduction of 80% or more

HOW IT WORKS

We use the Fotona® high performance Nd:YAG laser system for reducing unwanted hair. This technology is safe to use on all skin types and is actually the same customizable laser system we use for laser skin resurfacing. The Nd:YAG wavelength is the longest wavelength available that can target the deepest hair follicles. It is also the safest wavelength for darker skin types. The laser targets the pigmentation in the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding tissues unaffected. Generally resulting in semi-permanent hair removal.

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 is just as effective as the traditional high energy, single pass method that was previously practiced.

Dr. Braun is all about 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 is a light at a specific wave length that is absorbed by pigment (colour) in the hairs’ follicle which then heats and destroys the follicle so it can not grow another hair. The lighter the skin and the darker the hair, generally, the greater the reduction.

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 therefore we recommend waiting 4 – 6 weeks in between each laser hair reduction treatment and after any waxing or plucking treatment to ensure optimal results.
