Laser Hair Removal

Laser Hair Removal

Imagine not having to shave or worry about stubble, ingrown hairs or growing out your hair to wax. Laser hair removal is the answer and is a suitable and affordable treatment for both men and women. Enjoy hair free, worry free vacations, save time not having to shave everyday and enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal. Any area can be treated and at North Okanagan Skin & Laser, our goal is to make you feel comfortable no matter what area needs attention. We offer competitive pricing and as well as packages with even further discounts.

Keep in mind that not all lasers are the same. What type of laser is used will determine how many total treatments you will need, how complete the depilation will be, and ultimately, the overall laser hair removal cost. Our prices are very competitively priced and with fewer treatments needed, the savings are yours.

We use the newest and most sophisticated medical laser on the market today. Cynosure’s Elite+ is the gold standard for laser hair removal offering dual wavelengths to treat both light and tanned/dark skin. Unlike other clinics, you do not have to stop your laser hair removal treatments when you have a tan. The ND:YAG wavelength will treat hair without damage to dark skin. This is also the only laser approved for safely treating skin types 4-6. Your safety should be your first concern and at North Okanagan Skin & Laser, you can feel confident knowing we have the experience and equipment to provide you with the safest, most effective and best laser hair removal treatment available.


How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser works by targeting the melanin (darker colour) in the hair follicles, and destroys these follicles by means of a process called selective photothermolysis. This means that the laser beam targets the melanin and heats it up selectively, disabling the hair follicle without damage to the surrounding tissue. Our system applies a cool air to the skin during the treatment to minimize discomfort.


HOW TO PREPARE BEFORE LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Please shave the area to be treated the night before or the morning of the treatment.

Do not apply any lotions, creams or makeup on the area to be treated.

Do not wax or tweeze the area to be treated.


THE BEST LASER HAIR REMOVAL RESULTS

The results will vary from person to person and are influenced by a number of factors and will be discussed during your consultation. Most clients will achieve an 80-90% reduction in hair. By following your technician’s advice you will achieve the optimal outcome of hair reduction.

We recommend 6-8 treatments for laser hair removal. Depending on the area, it will need to be treated 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. Only the hair follicles in the active growing cycle (anagen phase), respond to treatment, hence the need for multiple treatments.

Some future maintenance or touch up sessions will most likely be required after you complete your series. We offer single treatment pricing or packages of 3 or 6.

At North Okanagan Skin & Laser, the staff are experts and laser hair removal is safe no matter which areas you are treating. With 2 types of medical lasers for hair removal, you can be sure every laser treatment you receive is specially tailored to you and your skin type, hair type and genetic factors. Your safety and comfort is of utmost importance to us. Our unique cooling system ensures high comfort levels to all our clients during their treatments at our Vernon spa.
