  • Q. How many sessions does it take to permanently removal all the hair?
  • Every person is different; it depends on such factors as age, medication and hair colour. However on average, it takes approximately 5-7 treatments to be 95% hair free.
  • Q. Do you have to avoid the sun when getting laser hair removal treatment?
  • It is always important for your skin to be as calm as possible prior to receiving any type of treatment, which means avoiding getting a sun tan a few days prior to a treatment. For those clients who have fair hair colours, it is important to avoid the sun as much as possible.
  • Q. Is there anything that I should do before a laser hair removal treatment?
  • There are a few things that can make your skin more sensitive to the laser. Caffeine, Advil and Motrin and certain types of medication may increase your skin’s sensitivity. It is also best to avoid having a treatment the week before or during a menstrual cycle as your skin can be extremely sensitive.
  • Q. Is there anything that I should do after a laser hair removal treatment?
  • I always recommend a broad spectrum sunscreen of 30 SPF or higher, all year round. Also, I would recommend that you avoid swimming or exercise as the sweat may irate your skin. You may apply make-up immediately after your treatment.
  • Q. I have sensitive skin. Are there any facial treatments that won’t result in irritation?
  • Our ultra-sonic facial is not only effective; it’s gentle enough to be used by clients with sensitive skin, as the skin spatula only requires water to cleanse the deep down into your pores.
  • Q. Is there anything I can do to reverse the effects of sun damage and aging on my skin?
  • Exposure to elements and daily living take their toll on our skin. That’s its job–to protect us from harmful elements. Luckily, we can help restore our skin by stimulating its natural healing process through methods such as microdermabrasion and light therapy.
  • Q. The spider legs in my veins make me uncomfortable wearing shorts. Can you help?
  • Yes! We use high-intensity lasers to reduce the appearance of spider veins. Treatments are typically 15 minutes long and only one or two treatments are required.
  • Q. How long will it take me to see results from a microdermabrasion or light therapy treatments?
  • Many clients see improvement in as little as one session. However, every person’s skin is different and multiple sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results. Call our office to schedule a free consultation and learn more about a treatment plan that’s right for you.
