What is Laser?
Any Laser is a focused beam of light energy, that usually travels until it finds a material that absorbs it, we call this material a chromophore (This means a material that loves the colors). Different laser wavelengths have different chromophores, Moreover, a chromophore turns the light energy into heat.
How does Laser removal of unwanted hair in Edmonton work?
Lasers produce light at a particular wavelength which penetrates the hair follicle pigment — without destroying the surrounding targeted area. The laser light changes into heat energy, which stops the hair follicle from producing another hair. Therefore, LHR works mainly on dark hair, as it contains the pigment melanin. People with grey and blond hair are a poor candidate for laser.
We have different hair color because of the different pigment in the hair follicles, Melanin, which works as a chromophore. Therefore, different hair colors absorb laser differently. Black hair has special melanin that takes lots of laser light and makes into heat that destroys the hair. Therefore, we cannot use LHR for grey and blond hair. Moreover, it is risky for people with darker skin (Fitzpatrick class V and VI)
Do all laser work for hair removal?
No, only lasers with a specific wavelength are useful in permanent hair removal. Other wavelengths can be used for skin care, skin resurfacing, acne scars, rolling scars and smoothing the surface of the skin

The procedure can safely remove hair from any part of the body, however, we adjust the settings according to the area of the body. These include facial hair except the small region within the bony edge of the eye socket.
How long does the treatment by laser take?
Several factors determine the duration of treatment. It can be slow or swift, provided it is appropriate for our your skin type. The topography and size of the treated part affect the duration of a session. However, the backs and legs take about an hour, while ear tops and upper may need 9 to 10 minutes. Underarms and neck may take up to 20 minutes.
After treatment care
The targeted area will be hypersensitive after the procedure, so avoid steam rooms, swimming pool, hot showers, saunas, and exercise for approximately 2 days.
Do not expose the treated part to direct sunlight. Avoid using thick creams or perfumed products for two days. If you performed LHR on your legs, do not put on tight clothes for approximately 48hrs, as the clothing may aggravate newly treated skin.
All these may cause the treated part of the skin to become inflamed or irritated. It is vital you adhere to these safety guidelines to protect your skin.

The Brand of the laser machines, The time required for each procedure, The location of the treatment, The Number of LHR session required
Hair grows in different phases, and we should apply the laser in a specific phase for maximum efficacy. therefore, we need to space the session away from each other according to the body area
Is laser hair removal treatment worth it?
In contrast to shaving and waxing, laser hair removal is a more permanent alternative. After 4-6 sessions, the hair growth rate reduces and will no longer need to wax or shave them, saving you a lot of money.
