Laser Hair Removal destroys the hair follicles and their ability to grow hair where it is unwanted. Not all hair removal lasers work equally well. Medical-grade differs greatly from spa-grade and not all technology is suitable for every person. Having a basic understanding of how laser hair removal works and what to expect will save you money, time and possibly disappointment.
Hair removal treatments are done with either an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light machine) or various lasers, known as Alexandrites, ND Yags or Diodes. Each has its pros and cons, its advantages, risks, and limitations. If you have seen our website, or the clinic itself, you may be aware that Skinpossible has more technology than any other clinic in Calgary. Skinpossible has all of the above and all of our technology is tier-one within its class. Since lasers and light used for hair removal are looking beneath the surface of the skin for pigment in the hair follicle, not all technologies are suitable for darker skin types or tanned skin due to the pigment in the skin itself.
Imagine the freedom of enjoying the smooth skin, free of stubble, without the need to shave or wax. Laser Hair Removal can destroy the hair follicles and their ability to grow hair where it is unwanted.
Women have been shaving their legs and underarms for decades. It’s a cumbersome chore that needs to be done frequently to avoid stubble. Feminine facial hair is even more cumbersome. It is common in certain ethnic groups and increases in most ethnicities after menopause. Hairy backs have never been considered attractive, but nowadays it seems that body hair, in general, is considered unsightly on men as well as women. In an era where all of us seem busier than ever, shaving is time-consuming and the cost of professional waxing can add up. Ingrown hairs that can result from ongoing shaving or waxing are unsightly and can even be painful. Imagine the freedom of enjoying smooth skin, free of stubble, without the need to shave or wax.
Not all hair removal lasers work equally well. Medical-grade differs greatly from spa-grade and not all technology is suitable for every person. Having a basic understanding of how laser hair removal works and what to expect will save you money, time and possibly disappointment. Depending on the thickness of the hair, the colour of the hair, the depth of the follicles, and how much natural pigment is in your skin, we choose the device that will work best for you.
Diodes are recognized to have the optimal depth of penetration and energy absorption to target hair follicles. Hair removal with diode lasers generally requires fewer treatments, but the Lightsheer goes beyond that:
Suitable for fair and dark skin types: Lightsheer can safely and effectively treat all but the darkest skin types.
The speed of Treatment: The surface area that each pulse covers with the Lightsheer’s high-speed integrated technology is huge by laser standards. People are busy, and the fact that we can treat an entire back or lower legs in only twenty-minutes makes it more convenient for our patients.
Comfort: If you’ve ever had laser hair removal you know it can be painful. The high-speed handpiece of the Lightsheer doesn’t hurt. Of course, you can feel it, but most people do not find it uncomfortable!
Expanded capabilities of Fotona’s new Avalanche Frac 3 ND Yag laser hair removal improves the efficacy, and unlike other ND Yag laser treatments which hurt, this treatment is completely pain-free. It is ideal for people from the Middle East and other dark skin types because the wavelength penetrates deeply into the skin to target the deepest hair follicles while by-passing the natural pigment in the skin.
The BBL is a medical-grade IPL that provides integrated cooling during the treatment. This allows us to set aggressive parameters to seek out hair while keeping the epidermis safe. It’s more comfortable than most lasers and can effectively treat hair that would be missed by other lasers. It is the gold standard for seeing pigment which allows the BBL to target finer hair and a lighter colour of hair than any other technology. It is suitable for lighter skin types.
The answer is Yes! Skinpossible can remove hair on any skin type, Fair, Medium, and Dark.
For light hair: BBL! It can see a lighter colour of hair and finer hair than other technologies. As long as there is pigment in the hair BBL will be able to see it. With BBL we can remove even the fine hairs that are left behind by other lasers.
For Darker skin: To remove hair from the darkest of skin we use our Elite ND Yag.
Although we provide Intimate laser hair removal as a routine part of our business, we understand that for you it may feel very invasive and even embarrassing. We want you to have the hair removal you want, and we want the procedure to be as comfortable as possible (physically, mentally and emotionally). For very intimate removal, we utilize towels to offer discrete treatment methods (for women and men) that will make you feel comfortable. You can even opt to use a small guard that affords a measure of privacy, while still allowing us to remove the unwanted hair.
