Why Toronto residents may want to consider laser hair removal treatment
At Dermatology on Bloor, we see many Toronto patients who are unhappy with unwanted hair on their bodies. Whether it is on the face, back, underarms, bikini line, chest, or legs, it can be frustrating to spend day after day shaving, waxing, and plucking. Laser hair removal can thin and eliminate unwanted hair. Patients will experience a decrease in hair growth that can last for up to a decade.
Laser hair removal targets hair follicles in the active growth stage; because of this, a single treatment will not be able to stop all of the hair follicles. At Dermatology on Bloor, we use the state of the art Cutera laser system. The Cutera system uses a longer wavelength than previous methods along with a cooling system to destroy hair follicles without damaging the surface of the skin. Cutera can be used on patients of all skin types.
The amount of time required for laser hair removal depends on the area being treated. Hair on the face may only require a few minutes, while hair covering the back will take longer. Patients may feel a mild stinging or pinching sensation during treatment, but the coolglide hand piece of the Cutera laser will provide patients with a comfortable treatment.
In the days following treatment, you may notice some re-growth of hair. This is part of the healing process as your body dispels those hairs. For most patients. Six to eight treatments can help them achieve their desired results. For permanent results, we may recommend patients schedule yearly maintenance treatments.
Both women and men alike can benefit from laser hair removal. It’s an affordable and effective way to put a stop to daily maintenance of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal requires no downtime, so patients can feel free to return to their regular schedules after their session.
If you are in the Toronto area and you would like to take control of all of those hours spent grooming, call us today to schedule a consultation for laser hair removal. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and help you determine if the treatment is right for you.
