Laser Hair Removal Services
Unwanted hair: unfortunately, it’s something that most of us have to deal with. It’s something that might have been bothering you for a while, and although you’ve tried shaving, waxing, hair removal creams and other remedies that are short-lived and ineffective, the hair persistently returns. You’ve considered laser hair removal, however, you’ve heard that it’s painful and doesn’t necessarily work for every skin type, and many other points against the treatment – essentially, you’ve heard inaccurate, out-dated information.
Because that was then, and this is now: at the Ottawa Skin Clinic, we value your comfort. We offer laser hair reduction using the state-of-the-art Alma Lasers Soprano ICE.*
Super Hair Removal (SHR™) Method
The Soprano ICE laser is a cutting-edge and world class instrument. It is virtually pain-free, ensuring that your experience at the Ottawa Skin Clinic is as comfortable and convenient as possible. Alma’s SHR™ (Super Hair Removal) hair reduction method offers a simple, one-stop solution for truly effective hair reduction in typical cases using groundbreaking technology. SHR™ uses a gradual heating method to target the hair follicles without affecting the surrounding skin.*
All of our medical aestheticians use the clinically proven IN-Motion™ technique, which is a breakthrough in comfort, speed, and results in typical cases. Alma Lasers’ unique IN-Motion™ technology is an innovative combination of cooling with a gradual thermal rise to the desired therapeutic temperature with much less pain and virtually no risk of injury for the patient in typical cases. Compare this with the high peak energies in traditional photoepilation technology that required intense cooling before, during, and after each pulse – plus the handpiece needed to remain stationary. What makes IN-Motion™ so revolutionary is the sweeping technique which allows your medical aesthetician to administer a larger area with less discomfort and more complete coverage. The laser, equipped with a specialized applicator remains in constant motion throughout the treatment to ensure full coverage.*
The treatment works by using eumelanin – the melanin type that gives dark, easily visible hair its colour – to target the hair follicles under the skin, so that only the follicles are affected, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Using this process, many patients who seek laser hair removal service experience an 80% reduction in hair after a typical series of between 6 and 10 treatments. To target the individual hairs at the proper stage of growth for optimal removal, these treatments will take place at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks.*
Do you have light, medium, or dark skin? Coarse or fine hair? It doesn’t matter – we can achieve safe, quick, and virtually painless results for all skin tones and hair types for all areas of the body in typical cases. So no matter what your skin type, laser hair reduction may work for you to help confront unwanted hair and say goodbye to wax and razors forever!
