Getting rid of unwanted hair can be a difficult, painful and temporary process when done by shaving, waxing, and using chemicals removers.
At Clinique de Montreal we offer the latest laser hair removal treatments that permanently reduce body & facial hair. Forget about the painful waxing or the inconvenience of shaving constantly by preventing the regrowth of hair with our excellent laser.
Our advanced hair removal machines allow you to obtain a smooth hairless appearance pain free after doing several spaced sessions.
HOW DOES THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT WORK?
The purpose of the treatment is to selectively treat the hair follicle without causing thermal damage to the surrounding tissue, the epidermis. Laser light is absorbed by melanin (the pigment that gives colour to human skin and hair), which is the target in hair. The light is converted to heat. Heat damages the bulge and bulb disabling the hair structure.
When treating patients for hair removal, the epidermis must be protected by some type of cooling. All of our advanced laser hair removal systems offer a Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) which gives the best protection to the epidermis while the treatment is done , resulting in a very comfortable procedure.
IS THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT RIGHT FOR ME?
Hair laser removal is an excellent treatment option for those who want comfortable, pain-free and long lasting results.Our hair removal lasers are suitable for all skin types.
The laser provides the best benefit for patients that have a darker pigmented hair follicle.
The laser light is not absorbed by white, gray, red or light-blond hair, and therefore minimal results will be seen for this type of hair if you decide to go with the treatment.
An evaluation with our professionally trained nurse will give you the best information about whether you are eligible for the treatment.
All treatments are supervised by our dermatologist Dr. Joseph Doumit.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?
Pre and post instructions are given to patients prior to starting a hair removal treatment.
The maximal benefit of our treatments is reached by doing multiple sessions (average 6-8) within 4-8 weeks intervals depending on the area(s) that is (are) treated. The intervals in between sessions are to ensure that the hair follicles can be targeted in their growth stage and gradual hair reduction is obtained. After each treatment patients need to be compliant with the post-procedural instructions. When all the sessions have been completed, patients need to return every 6 months for maintenance of the hair removal.
