What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a laser treatment that targets hair follicles with intense laser light energy for thermal destruction without damaging surrounding tissue. The laser targets the hair follicle with intense light energy to thermally destroy it, resulting in permanent hair reduction in just a few treatments. Clinique Face MD offers the most advanced laser hair removal system on the market.

Who can receive laser hair removal treatment?

Anyone with hair can receive laser hair removal treatment, however people with dark hair and light skin are typically the people with the highest success results for laser hair removal.

Dark skin acts as a filter of the laser beam and does not allow enough energy to reach the hair follicle. Those with dark skin are still, however, good candidates for laser hair removal but may need to go through more treatments to achieve smooth skin.

Treatment areas for laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is a versatile procedure capable of treating nearly any body part with the sole exceptions being the eyebrows and eyelashes due to their proximity to the eyes. Below is a detailed list of treatable areas along with insights into each:

  • Underarms: Ideal for those seeking a long-term solution to avoid regular shaving, with usually faster and visible results due to the area’s typically darker hair.
  • Bikini Area: A preferred choice for a clean aesthetic and comfort, especially during summer or for those who are active in sports.
  • Legs: Popular for achieving smooth, hair-free skin that eliminates the need for frequent waxing or shaving.
  • Arms: Treatable for both light and dark hair, although lighter hair may require more sessions for optimal results.
  • Back and Shoulders: Common for men or those with thicker, darker hair who desire a sleeker appearance and reduced body hair maintenance.
  • Chest and Abdomen: Chosen often by men or for cosmetic reasons, this area responds well to laser treatment, especially where hair is dense.
  • Upper Lip: Despite being a challenging area due to finer hair, our laser technology and expert technicians can devise an effective treatment strategy.
  • Chin: Suitable for women who experience unwanted facial hair and wish for a permanent solution.
  • Full Face: A comprehensive option that excludes the eyebrows and lashes but covers areas like the sideburns, offering a seamless appearance.

Which patients should avoid laser hair removal treatments?

Many clients want to know what the contraindications to laser removal are. Here we have compiled a list of skin conditions which would inhibit a safe laser hair removal procedure :

Patients using accutane

Wait 6 months after you stop taking Accutane.

Patients with tattoos

Tattoos – We do not treat tattooed skin, including decorative tattoos, permanent make-up, and write-off tattoos.

Patients with high photosensitivity

Patients with seizure disorders

We do not treat patients with a history of light-triggered seizures.

Patients taking specific medication

Patients taking daily blood thinners, iron supplements, herbal supplements like ginko, ginseng, or garlic may bruise more easily.

Patients taking photosensitizing drugs

Drugs that induce photosensitivity in or above the 755nm or 1064nm wavelength range.

Patients carrying the Herpes simplex virus (HSV) 1 and 2

Do not treat if one or more active lesions are present in the intended treatment area. Patients with a known history of frequent lesions due to HSV 1 & 2 should start prophylaxis before treatment, as prescribed by their doctor.

Learn more about hair removal

Laser hair removal at our Montreal clinic provides a pathway to permanent laser hair removal, targeting the complete hair elimination over a series of treatments. While permanent results are the goal, body changes like hormonal fluctuations or life events may prompt some regrowth of coarse hair. However, with efficient treatment protocols, any resurgent hair can be managed with subsequent treatment sessions to maintain smooth skin under our medical supervision.

Laser hair removal does cause minimal discomfort, but it is much more comfortable than other forms of hair removal, especially waxing. Many individuals describe laser hair removal as similar to a warm prick or the feeling of a rubber band snapping against your skin. However, with our dynamic cooling device, you will feel minimal pain or heat. This equipment minimizes discomfort by releasing a quick burst of liquid cryogen before and after each laser pulse. This cryogen quickly evaporates, cooling the outer layers of the skin for a relatively painless hair removal experience!

Our hair laser removal process begins without numbing cream, using a precise laser hair removal system to direct a spectrum of light at the hair follicles through the upper skin layers. This targets the hair color and type without damaging surrounding tissue. Discomfort is mitigated by a cooling device, making it a hair removal safe option. Effective treatment requires 6-8 sessions, with the laser hair removal session adapted to individual hair growth cycles and hair color for maximum efficacy.

Aftercare includes planning the interval between sessions to align with your hair’s natural cycle, optimizing the permanent removal outcome. Our technicians, with meticulous attention to light hair as well as dark, will guide you through the treatment intervals, ensuring an efficient and effective journey to hair-free skin.

For about six weeks before treatment, you should avoid epilating, using electrolysis or waxing.

On the day of treatment, the skin should be clean shaven and free of any makeup, cream, oil, topical anesthetic or self-tanner. You should also make sure to apply sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) before your treatment. Since your skin will be sensitive to UV rays, do not expose the treatment area to sunlight or a tanning booth before or immediately after treatment. If you have a history of herpes simplex virus, you may be prescribed prophylactic antiviral therapy to use before and after the laser hair removal treatment. 

There is usually no recovery time after laser hair removal. You may feel a slight redness or itching which usually goes away within a few hours. Cold compresses or cold gel packs or cooled aloe vera gel can be applied after the treatment. Resume using the usual topical creams when the irritation subsides. 

There are potential side effects of laser hair removal which you may want to consider: burns, blisters, scabs, hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, purpura or activation of herpes simplex and in rare cases some scarring may appear. Hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation may not appear for 1 to 2 weeks and in rare cases it may last for months or more. In the event of hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation, treatment should not be continued no matter the skin color. To reduce the chance of hypo or hyperpigmentation, patients are encouraged to stay away from sun exposure before and after receiving the treatment.

List of potential effects:

  1. Skin Irritation: Temporary discomfort, redness, and swelling are common immediately after the procedure. These typically subside within several hours.
  2. Pigment Changes: Laser hair removal might lighten or darken the affected skin, usually temporarily. Darkening (hyperpigmentation) is more common in people with darker skin. Lightening (hypopigmentation) may affect the area of the skin that was treated if you have darker skin.
  3. Blistering, Crusting, or Scarring: These more severe side effects are rare but can occur, especially in people with darker skin tones or when improper laser settings are used.
  4. Changes in Skin Texture: If you have a recent tan or darker skin, you’re at a higher risk of changes in skin texture following treatment.
  5. Excessive Hair Growth around Treated Areas: In some cases, especially in individuals with darker skin, the laser treatment might not lead to the desired results and instead cause hair to gray or increase hair growth in adjacent areas.
