Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal

Smooth, hair-free skin. Methods of laser hair removal have been proven to be highly effective.

Even so, numerous methods of removing unwanted facial or body hair have been used for centuries.

Tweezing, waxing, sugaring, shaving, or even the use of pumice stones are some of the temporary options that have been available.

Electrolysis, lasers, and the next generation of hair removal services such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems provide a more permanent method of hair reduction using laser treatment or similar techniques to render skin hair free and virtually permanently.

Electrolysis is a painful and time-consuming process and may only be suitable for certain smaller facial areas like the upper lip, chin, etc.

There is a better way, but before you decide, let us provide you with additional information.

Laser Hair Removal Methods and Techniques

Though experiments for hair epilation with lasers were performed in the mid-1970s, commercial use became more popular and acceptable in the 1990s.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), though technically not a laser, provides safe and effective treatments for unwanted hair on all skin types and hair color ranging from blonde to black.The process of permanent hair reduction is straightforward but most effective when used by an experienced and educated technician.The target chromophore for this process is melanin (the dark pigment that gives the hair its color) in the hair follicle.

After preparing the area, an entirely safe wavelength of light is pulsed or administered to the skin, which is absorbed by the melanin. This light energy which is absorbed is converted into heat energy which destroys the hair follicle.

Because our hair grows in different cycles at any particular time, only a small percentage of hair follicles have enough pigments to be destroyed.

Multiple treatments are required to see significant hair removal. Depending on the individual hair growth and the area to be treated, the time in between the treatment varies from five to twelve weeks.

At Laser Genesis, we use “Palomar Starlux,” one of the most powerful and versatile FDA approved platform for hair removal and esthetic treatments. Advanced contact cooling, photon recycling, and larger spot sizes make for the most comfortable and fast treatments. Full legs or a man’s back can be treated in as little as 30 minutes. Intense Pulsed Light treatments are very effective for the reduction of Pseudofolliculitis (ingrown hair) in all skin types. Improvement can be seen even after the first treatment.

Anu has been taking care of me for several years, and I can only say great things about her. She is very professional, keeps detailed histories of her treatments, and offers wise advice about skincare. While other skin clinics crop up everywhere in this part of Mississauga, I doubt you could find a better or more personalized service anywhere in the city. I highly recommend this skin clinic!

I've been working with Anu to find solutions to significant adult acne. This has been a problem all of my life and at Laser Genesis I've found treatments that are truly making a difference. I have hope now that this isn't a problem I've going to have to live with all of my life. Anu understands the acne sufferer and really cares about making a difference in their lives. Thank you Anu!

After some very disappointing consultations at other laser clinics, I was blown away at how helpful and informative Anu is! She really takes the time to care for your skin, provide as much information as possible and ensures you feel comfortable before and after every session. Very pleased with my results from Laser Genesis for the IPL facial treatments!

I've been coming here for several months now. Service is impeccable and very friendly. IPL and fractional resurfacing have provided great results so far.
