Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal in Ottawa is one of the most efficient and effective ways to remove unwanted hair from areas of the face and body. The treatment is comfortable and quick, and over the course of a few treatments our patients can achieve significantly smoother skin. The ProWave laser we use at our practice targets the hair and removes it while protecting the surrounding tissue.
With a series of laser hair removal treatments, lasting hair removal is possible. Common areas treated with the laser include:
- Bikini Line
Laser Hair Removal Procedure
At our practice in Ottawa, laser hair removal using the ProWave laser employs a multiple wavelength system. This allows multiple skin types and hair colors to be treated, making it a versatile laser. Anesthesia is usually not necessary; however, some may choose to use a topical anesthetic in sensitive areas.
Because the hair grows in cycles, treatments should be separated with a few weeks in between each session. Usually about 3 to 6 treatments are recommended for optimal results, but total number of treatments largely depends on factors such as hair thickness, the area treated and hair growth cycle.
