Are you tired of shaving and waxing unwanted hair only to be left with big red bumps and flaky skin? For those with sensitive skin, using a razor or hot wax can feel like you’re fighting fire with fire. Fortunately, there’s a better way to get rid of all that hair, quickly and efficiently. At The Ottawa Skin Clinic, we use the latest laser hair removal technology to eliminate any unwanted hair by targeting the root with a concentrated beam of light. As a result, laser hair removal will damage the root while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. In return, you’ll receive silky, smooth skin! If you’ve never tried laser hair removal before or have experienced unsuccessful results elsewhere, we welcome you to learn more about the innovative hair removal services that we offer and how our treatments can get you the results you desire.

What Is Laser Hair Removal and How Does It Work?

Laser hair removal is an easy, non-invasive way to remove unwanted hair over time. The laser produces a highly concentrated beam of light at your hair follicles. Because the pigment of your skin is different than your skin, only the hair follicle absorbs the light, destroying the root and leaving you with smooth skin.

How Does It Help?

Lasers are highly accurate tools. They can specifically target the darker, thicker hair vs. the surrounding skin to ensure only the hair is removed. Lasers are also incredibly fast, removing the hair in seconds. It’s highly effective at eliminating your hair over a period of time. Due to the hair growth cycle, multiple treatments are needed to most fully disable hair growth. Typically, clients require 6 to 12 visits to fully reduce unwanted hair. Following the sessions, clients typically see a 90% reduction in hair.

What Areas Can Be Lasered?

From head to toe – you can use laser hair removal for all of your body hair including the bikini line, chin area, buttocks, thighs, arms, neck, toes, and face. Wherever you have unwanted hair we can help remove it.

How Long Does It Take?

The length of treatment will depend on how much hair needs to be removed and how many areas are being treated. For instance, a small area like your face can take 15 minutes or less, but a larger area like your legs and back can take up to an hour. If you are having a number of areas lasered at the same time it can take longer. Fortunately, the lasering system we use is the fastest around, saving you a lot of time rather than having to come back to treat different areas (we’ll explain more about this below).

Why Is It Better Than Shaving and Waxing?

It can permanently reduce hair production. Plus, it won’t cause ingrown hairs, razor burns or painful shaving nicks.

Are All Laser Hair Treatments the Same?

No, like all treatments, some are better than others. When it comes to getting hair laser removal services, you want to make sure the clinic is using the right type of laser. Older lasers don’t target as well and can actually damage the surrounding skin. That’s why we use the Alma Laser system that is the latest technology available to safely and quickly remove unwanted hair. All of our technicians are properly trained on the technology as well to ensure superior results.

Can Men Benefit from Laser Hair Removal?

Yes, any unwanted body hair on your back, shoulders, chest or pelvic area, can be removed. Our pain-free laser hair removal treatments will carefully target the hair follicles, creating more effective results and a seamless experience. Even men with thick hair can see a big difference in as little as 6 treatments.

What Are the Best Laser Hair Removal Services?

At The Ottawa Skin Care Clinic, we only use the latest laser technology that we know works and that’s the Alma SHR™ Super Hair Removal system along with the IN-Motion™ technique.
