Success stories

Underarm Laser Hair Removal TorontoCountless numbers of people are enjoying the freedom that laser hair removal for underarms provides. Wouldn’t you love to be one of them? Sara Spruch-Feiner’s is an advocate and writes all about her success in an article published in Allure magazine. She talks about the inconvenience of dealing with thick, dark stubble and forgetting to shave when she really to. She also had sensitive skin and hated shaving—the razor burn and red bumps. These inconveniences were eliminated after her laser treatments.

How hair removal works

Laser Hair Removal uses light technology to remove unwanted hair from any part of your body. The laser emits a beam of light at a specific wavelength in order to target melanin inside your hair and the growth center of your hair follicle. Melanin, also known as chromophore, is the material that gives your hair its specific colour. Laser impulses, when they are absorbed by hair follicles, destroy the targeted hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. When used properly, they won’t pose harm to your surrounding skin tissue. Lasers emit the exact wavelength required for your specific hair.

How many treatments do you need?

Hairs in an active growth phase are affected the most by the laser (a good thing). Since not all hairs on your body are in this phase at the same time, it is natural that you will require more than one treatment in order to achieve the best possible results. In general, five to seven treatments are required at six to eight week intervals when it comes to laser hair removal for underarms. There are numerous factors that can affect your laser hair removal treatment results, such as the thickness of your hair, the colour of your hair, your hormones, your age and your skin colour. Thus, the number of treatments needed is not the same for every person.

Different laser types

There are many different laser types, including LightSheer® DUET™ and GentleMax Pro®. Ideal for lighter skin and darker hair and darker hair, the LightSheer® DUET™ (approved by the FDA and Health Canada) is used for facial hair removal, leg hair and bikini hair removal, as well as back hair and arm hair removal. The latest version allows for complete hair removal after only 5 to 7 treatments. The technology is both safe and effective—it’s a non-invasive procedure that actually stops hair growth. Most clients see permanent results after about 5 treatment sessions and some respond more quickly than others. LightSheer® DUET™ also reduces the occurrence of ingrown hairs and rejuvenates the skin. There are numerous benefits associated with this type of laser.

GentleMax Pro® Alexandrite laser 755 nm is used for hair that is lighter in color or finer. It targets the hair follicles at the root to achieve permanent hair removal. GentleMax Pro® is considered faster and more comfortable than many other hair removal treatments, resulting in 80%-98% permanent hair reduction during the first few treatments. The Nd:YAG  1064 nm is used for darker and tanned skin. This is the fastest and most powerful YAG laser available, and provides comfort with a cooling spray. This laser can even be used to help treat certain skin conditions.
