Laser Hair Removal treatment removes unwanted facial and body hair, reducing the need for waxing, tweezing, or shaving.
The mechanism of action is that the laser targets the follicle where the hair originates. The laser can only damage the follicle during the anagen phase of hair growth.The anagen phase is known as the growth phase. As a result, it always requires several treatments in order to achieve optimal results.
The laser settings are such that it specifically targets the hair and not the skin. As a result, individuals with light skin and dark hair generally achieve excellent results with fewer treatments. At Vancouver’s Pender Medi Spa we have four different laser systems in order to target all hair colors and skin types. Thus, even someone with extremely dark skin such as an African skin type, can benefit from using one of our lasers which penetrates the skin deeply; and thereby not affecting the skin.
All laser systems require a target. Thus no laser system can reduce the growth of Blonde or Grey Hair. For these individuals Pender Medi Spa utilizes Electrolysis, at their Vancouver Medi Spa. Electrolysis sends a small electrical current into the hair follicle thus preventing the hair from growing, irrespective of the hair’s colour.
Pender Medi Spa offers safe and effective hair removal primarily for the face, underarms, legs, and bikini area using the Cynosure Elite MPX Laser.
