Trying to get rid of unwanted hair on the body and face is not very enjoyable. The process involves waxing, shaving, tweezing, or using hair removal creams, which is painful and time-consuming. The most annoying part is that you have to repeat the same thing all over again in a few days or weeks.

With laser hair removal in Oshawa or Durham, you can put this concern of yours to rest. Harmony MedSpa offers excellent laser hair removal services. Our team is composed of highly qualified professionals who use only the latest and safest technology to deliver optimum results.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser light to target and remove unwanted hair from your body. During treatment, the laser emits light energy that is then absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. This heats only the hair follicles, damaging them and inhibiting or delaying future hair growth. 

You may notice small plumes of smoke with a sulphur-like smell during this procedure. This comes from your hair follicle being vaporized.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

In the dermatology literature, laser hair removal is said to be the most effective and safe treatment method. It has been in use for many years and is totally safe.

However, it may not be 100% safe if the laser hair removal treatment is not performed by a trained professional. There are some potential risks involved, so be sure to check the qualifications or credentials of the technician or the doctor before you take the treatment.

Harmony MedSpa Oshawa highly recommends that you try to stop plucking and waxing for at least six weeks before you get a laser treatment. You should also limit going out in the sun for six weeks of pre and post-treatment. This is because the treatment will not be effective if your skin is exposed to the sun’s light.

Considerations for Laser Hair Removal

Deciding to undergo laser hair removal treatment is often based on personal preferences rather than specific symptoms. If you’re thinking about having this procedure done, make sure to do your homework. Here are signs that laser hair removal may be for you:

Unwanted Hair Growth 

Do you have areas of unwanted hair growth that you find bothersome or want to reduce? Laser hair removal can provide long-term reduction or removal of these hairs, offering a smoother, hair-free skin solution.

Ingrown Hairs 

Are you prone to ingrown hairs, especially on your bikini line, underarms, or face? If yes, you may benefit from laser hair removal, which can stop ingrown hair growth over time.

Skin Sensitivity 

Shaving and waxing can irritate individuals with sensitive skin. Laser hair removal offers a gentler alternative that can minimize this discomfort and irritation, making it suitable for these skin types.

Hair Density 

Laser hair removal is most effective for those with dark, coarse hair. If you have darker hair and lighter skin, you may see significant and lasting results compared to those with lighter hair colours.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

At Harmony MedSpa, the Cynosure Elite+ laser has become a staple treatment procedure in our clinic. It uses dual-wavelength technology—the Alexandrite (755nm) and Nd:YAG (1064nm), enabling it to treat a wide range of skin types safely and effectively.

When preparing for your laser hair removal session in our modern laser clinic at Harmony MedSpa, it is important to shave the treatment areas 12 to 24 hours prior to your appointment.  During the session, the laser settings will be adjusted based on your skin tone, hair thickness, and the colour of your hair to ensure the best results. 

You may experience a mild stinging sensation when the laser comes in contact with the skin. This is normal during the procedure. The duration of the treatment will depend on the size of the area that’s being treated, ranging from a few minutes to several hours. 

Since laser hair removal typically requires multiple sessions for effective results, it’s important to be prepared for a series of appointments. This ensures a successful treatment plan for your desired outcome.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal: Results You Can Expect

Precision 

Cynosure Elite+ utilizes precision-guided laser technology, compressing two wavelengths into a single laser that targets only the hair follicles and leaves the surrounding skin unharmed. This ensures effective hair removal without damaging adjacent skin areas.

Long-Lasting Results 

While it may not be permanent, laser hair removal reduces hair growth significantly, leading to smoother skin.

Reduced Ingrown Hairs 

By eliminating the need for shaving and waxing, laser hair removal reduces the occurrence of ingrown hairs, relieving associated skin irritation and discomfort.

Cost-Effective 

Although laser hair removal treatments require an initial investment, they ultimately save you money once you achieve your desired results. Say goodbye to expensive creams, razors, and even frequent salon visits over time!

Safety 

Laser hair removal reduces the risks of cuts, nicks, and skin damage compared to traditional hair removal methods. 

Minimal Downtime 

Cynosure Elite+ technology minimizes downtime. Minor side effects or post-treatment irritation will last a few days at most.

Improved Confidence 

Put on your summer clothes confidently and have a great time at the beach! After your laser hair removal treatment, you can achieve smoother, hair-free skin.

Laser Hair Removal Aftercare

After your laser hair removal in Durham, it’s common to experience a mild sunburn-like sensation in the treated skin area for a few days. Rest assured, this is completely normal. Our experienced laser technicians will provide you with the following post-treatment instructions to alleviate your concerns:

  • Protect the treated area from direct sun exposure for at least two weeks.
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+ or higher to prevent sunburn and hyperpigmentation.
  • Avoid harsh skincare products, exfoliants, or abrasive treatments.
  • For any mild discomfort or swelling, apply cool compresses to the treated area.
  • Avoid using ice directly on the skin.
  • Moisturize with a gentle, non-comedogenic moisturizer to promote healing and prevent dryness.
  • Avoid hot baths, saunas, and intense physical activities that may cause excessive sweating.
  • Do not wax, pluck, or use depilatory creams on treated areas.
  • Schedule follow-up sessions with your provider.
  • If you experience severe pain or any other unexpected reactions, contact your provider immediately.

Typically, the hair in the treated area will start to fall out within a few weeks to months, although this can vary from person to person. Over time, you will notice a significant reduction in hair growth, leading to smoother skin.

To maintain optimal results, we recommend scheduling a laser hair removal treatment at least once a year. This helps ensure continued hair reduction and long-lasting benefits from the procedure. Our team is dedicated to your satisfaction and will guide you through each step of the process to achieve a successful outcome.
