What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to remove unwanted hair from desired parts of the body. Diode lasers use a single wavelength of light that has a high abruption rate in melanin. As the melanin heats up, it destroys the root and blood flow to the follicle, disabling future hair growth. At The Skin Studio Inc., we pride ourselves in offering LHR using Diode technology, delivering high frequency at low fluence pulses.

This is the safest and most effective laser on the market that can safely treat all Fitzpatrick skin types/tones as well as all hair types (except for white/grey hair). At The Skin Studio Inc., we operate LHR procedures using the Diolaze XL by Inmode and Soprano Ice by Alma.
The Soprano Ice uses a wavelength range from 780-950 nm. It incorporates crystal freeze/refrigeration contact cooling to protect the surface of the skin, making the treatment a comfortable, pain-free experience for patients.
The Diolaze XL is the first on the market to combine 2 wavelengths (810 nm and 755 nm) that target the melanin pigment in the hair without targeting the melanin in your skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I A Good Candidate For LHR?

You are not a good candidate for LHR procedure if you are pregnant, nursing or plan to become pregnant while undergoing LHR treatments. Individuals who have used Accutane within the past 6 months or who used any medications causing photosensitivity (requiring limited exposure to sunlight) are not good candidates for LHR procedure. Individuals with recent prolonged sun exposure are advised to delay undergoing the LHR procedure by 1-2 weeks.

Is LHR Safe?

This treatment is safe as long as it is performed by a qualified healthcare professional. You will be required to wear protective eye glasses during the procedure to protect your eyes from the laser light. You may feel a slight heat, stinging or pinching sensation during the procedure that quickly subsides. Your qualified healthcare professional will review aftercare instructions prior to leaving the clinic.

What Are Possible Side Effects?

All medical and cosmetic procedures are associated with certain risks and may result in complications. Possible risks and complications associated with LHR procedure include: temporary follicular edema, burning, swelling, bruising or discolouration of the skin over the treated area. In rare cases, patients may experience blistering, scarring, activation of cold sores, infection or permanent discoloration. Folliculitis (infection of the hair follicle) may take several days to resolve. Hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) or hypo-pigmentation (lightening of the skin) may take several months to fully resolve.

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

The entire body can be treated with LHR. This includes all areas of the face surrounding hair growth: forehead, in between the eyebrows, on top of the brow bone and underneath, under the eyes above cheek bones, cheeks, nose (including inside the nostrils) upper lip, jawline, chin, neck. Common areas on the body include, chest, areola, stomach, brazilian, shoulders, full arms, hands, knuckles, full legs, feet, toes, bum cheeks, inner bum, full back as well as back of the neck.

How Long Does It Last?

The effectiveness of laser hair removal can vary depending on factors such as the color and thickness of the hair, as well as the color of the skin. It typically requires 8-12 CONSISTENT treatments to achieve 80% hair loss. Further continuing with maintenance sessions are crucial to maintain an 80%+ reduction in your hair growth. Results of LHR also vary depending on individual skin type, hormonal levels and hereditary influences. You will experience not only a severe reduction in your hair growth, but also significantly smaller follicle size and the remaining follicles will appear significantly lighter in colour. You will also experience a severe reduction of shadow/discolouration, razor burn and ingrown hairs leaving your skin smooth to the touch.
