Laser Hair Removal

For many years, for both men and women, unwanted body hair was a significant nuisance and possibly even a source of significant embarrassment. When laser hair removal was first introduced, it was time consuming, uncomfortable and not always very effective.

Thanks to new advances in laser hair removal treatment methods, patients are seeing much better results using procedures that are safer, more comfortable and faster than ever before. The Sharma Clinic offers laser hair removal for just about any area of the body including face, underarms, neck, back, shoulders, legs, bikini line, and many others. Edmonton residents should reach out to The Sharma Clinic to learn just how easy laser hair removal has become, thanks to new technology such as our high-quality laser – Fotona SP Dynamis.

How Do I Know if I’m a Good Fit for Laser Hair Removal?

The first thing you should do before investing in a cosmetic procedure such as laser hair removal is to sit down with Dr. Sharma, our licensed Edmonton doctor to determine if you’re a good fit for this procedure. During this examination, we’ll ask you a series of questions about your medical history and even perform a physical exam to ensure that you’re physically able to handle laser hair removal. We’ve seen the following characteristics exhibited by patients who are a good fit for laser hair removal:

  • Patients who have very light skin and very dark hair are ideal candidates for laser hair removal. This is because the laser used is attracted to the pigment that gives hair its color.
  • Because of advances in technology, individuals with tanner skin can now still benefit from laser hair removal, but it is recommended that they wait until their skin has returned to its more natural skin color before having the procedure.
  • Patients with extremely light colored hair may not be good candidates for the procedure.
  • Depending on the skin tone and hair color, multiple treatment sessions over a period of months may be required.

How Serious is the Recovery Process After Laser Hair Removal?

For a day or two immediately after the procedure your skin may feel like it has been sunburned. Using cool compresses and skin moisturizers may help sooth your skin during recovery. If your face was treated, you should be able to wear makeup the next day, unless your skin is blistering.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

How does laser hair removal work?
A concentrated laser is aimed at hair, which damages the follicle to help inhibit growth. Because the results can vary greatly, lasers can remove hair for anywhere from several months to multiple years.

Does laser hair removal hurt?
Patients who have had the procedure liken the pain to something between a gentle pinch and the snap of a rubber band.

Is the procedure permanent?
Not necessarily. Laser hair removal is most effective if the hair is caught in the growth stage, which can be difficult to determine since it grows in indeterminate cycles.

Will my skin break out after the procedure?
It’s common for your skin to breakout after a treatment, because the laser treatment leaves the hair follicles open for several days. A simple antibacterial lotion or over the counter hydrocortisone cream can help with these temporary blemishes.

What should I do before and after the procedure?
Discontinue use of any medications like Retin-A, Renova and other AHAs that can make skin fragile and sensitive to laser hair removal. After the procedure has been completed be sure to avoid saltwater, chlorine and the sun for about a week to prevent burning and irritation.
