Laser Hair Removal Calgary

Calgary, AB aesthetic clinic answers your questions about laser hair removal

Many people in the Calgary, AB area dread the daily routine of shaving or the expense and discomfort of salon waxing. Yet they would like to have smooth, sleek skin. Laser hair removal can be a good choice for a well-groomed appearance. It is available at Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic.

Common questions about laser hair removal in Calgary, AB

Q – What parts of the body can be treated with a laser hair removal machine?

A – Virtually any area can be addressed with the handheld device:

  • Cheeks, upper lip, and chin
  • Front and back of neck
  • Chest and abdomen
  • Arms
  • Bikini zone and buttocks
  • Legs
  • Even tops of fingers and toes

Q – Does laser hair removal hurt?

A – There is some stinging when the device dispenses energy into skin, but the sensation lasts only a few seconds. Treatment is generally well tolerated. Topical numbing cream can be applied to sensitive areas.

Q – Is laser hair removal safe?

A – The providers at Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic are well trained in use of the device and observe precautions recommended by the manufacturer. As with any medical procedure, there are risks. The doctor explains these during consultation.

Q – How do men benefit from facial hair removal?

A – Men tend to develop ingrowth from shaving. This can be especially problematic at the neck, for guys who wear dress shirts and ties. Laser treatment eliminates the need for daily shaving, allowing skin to return to normal.

Q – How effective is laser hair removal?

A – Laser hair reduction works by inhibiting the ability of hair follicles to produce strands. Pigments in the hair root absorb energy from the laser, creating a thermal reaction. With modern laser instruments, most skin and hair color combinations can be treated effectively and safely.

Q – Are laser hair removal before and after photos accurate?

A – We cannot vouch for the veracity of before and after photos other than our own, but results can be dramatic. Generally, six to eight sessions, spaced about a month apart, are needed for optimal clearance.
