Laser Hair Removal for
Women and Men at our Toronto Clinic

"At our Toronto clinic, laser hair removal is the most requested treatment by sufferers of painful ingrown hairs or excessive hair growth who are seeking relief from shaving, tweezing and waxing"

Laser Hair Removal

There are solid reasons for the removal of unwanted hair such as painful ingrown hairs, hair that grows in unusual patches and unusually excessive hair all of which can sometimes make us self-conscious. We can also likely agree that it takes up valuable weekend time, and can sometimes be painful, removing and grooming body hair.

Hair Removal Top Concerns

How does laser hair removal destroy hair follicles?

Without causing any harm or damage to your skin, a laser beam passes through your skin to the hair follicles. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. Depending on your skin type, an appropriate laser and treatment settings will be determined that is both safe and suitable for you.

What is the best technology to use?

Laser hair removal still has the potential to cause skin damage if an inappropriate wavelength is used, the equipment cooling system is subpar or the clinician is not experienced in the treatment of your skin type. Many equipment manufacturers are FDA approved and Health Canada approved but only two such manufacturers met our clinic's stringent requirements of extensive North American based clinical research, substantial business presence in Canada, proven laser hair removal technology with over 10 years of clinical use and at least 95% equipment uptime.
Vectus Laser Hair Removal

Our clinic chose Cynosure, Inc. as our laser equipment supplier as they surpassed quite easily our selection criteria. We use the Vectus Laser system provided by Cynosure, Inc. The Vectus Laser is considered the best laser hair removal equipment in its class known for its safety, high volume laser capabilities and its permanent hair removal effectiveness. The Vectus Laser has one of the lowest overall treatment cost per hour as fewer treatments are required. The Vectus Laser is safe for both face and body hair removal, for lighter and darker skin types and suitable for both women and men too. The integrated Skintel™ Melanin Reader™, the only FDA-cleared melanin reader, helps clinicians to safely assess the skin type prior to commencement of treatment.

Does it work on everyone?

The Vectus laser hair removal system has a long track record of proven successes in treating all skin types, ranging from very light skin to very dark skin, and most hair colors too. It works particularly well on dark skin and with equal laser hair removal success for both women and men.

Can all body areas be treated?

The face, shoulders, back, chest, abs, arms, hands, fingers, underarms, bikini area, and legs, feet and toes can all be successfully treated for laser hair removal.

Is hair removal by the Vectus really permanent?

Yes. There are numerous independent third party clinical studies that clearly demonstrate the efficacy of the Vectus laser technology at permanently destroying hair follicles in the anagen (growth) phase with no harm to the skin.

How safe is it?

With clinical results going back to 1997 and with no history of negative side effects to patients long term medical health, the Vectus laser hair removal technology has been proven to be safe. For this reason, laser hair removal can now be classified as a cosmetic treatment.

How painful will the procedure be?

You will generally feel a brief sting or pinch at the treatment area during the procedure, which is tolerated quite easily. Topical anesthetics are available if needed, but most patients do not require them.

Will I need multiple treatments?

Hair Growth Phases for Laser Hair Removal
Hair follicles pass through three different phases during its lifecycle. Hair is most effectively treated during the Anagen (growing) phase and as such several treatments are required to completely destroy each follicle. A minimum of three treatments per body area is recommended.

How fast will I recover?

No treatment downtime is generally experienced and you can resume your regular activities upon completion of your treatment.

What are the treatment side effects?

You will generally experience a mild sunburn type effect, and this is quite normal. This can last for a few hours on the day of your treatment but can sometimes last up to 72 hours. Mild swelling and redness may follow but this usually recedes in 2-3 days. Full post-treatment care instructions will be provided along with information on the best products to use for UVA/UVB protection after your laser hair removal treatment.

How much will I pay for the treatments?

The Vectus Laser is a high volume laser system allowing you to complete your treatments safely and faster. Overall, it's the best value when you consider the time to treat is lower compared to other laser machines. For comparable types of laser technology, our prices are very affordable. We ensure you get the best possible treatment care and results during your laser procedures and at a treatment cost as affordable for you as we can.
