SECOND SKIN LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Second Skin Laser extends the same great service and quality to hair removal laser treatments as we do for Tattoo Removal. At our location in Edmonton, we are confident that we can professionally fulfill most of your hair removal needs.
We have added the Quanta Evo Light A Star laser to our roster to provide exceptional hair removal services on any skin type.
HAIR REMOVAL: HOW DOES IT WORK?
The laser targets the active hair during the Anagen stage of hair growth. Multiple treatments are required to get all the active hair during this stage.
Unfortunately, not all hair colours are equal. The hair itself is a conductor for the laser to destroy the hair from top to the bulb. Dark and coarse hair make the best candidates for laser hair removal. White, grey, blonde, and red hair are harder to treat as they contain less pigment for the laser to target.
HAIR REMOVAL PRICING
Laser Hair Removal is great for those who are looking to remove hair from unwanted areas. Below are our starting prices. Book a consultation with one of our certified laser technicians to get a solid price per treatment.
Shave the area about 36 hours before your appointment to allow for a little bit of hair growth, but not too much that it is laying over on your skin.
No moisturizers, creams, perfume, or deodorants used on your appointment day on the treatment area.
Avoid tanning on the treatment area.
Scrub any sunless tans from treatment area.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT?
We can achieve permanent hair reduction on clients that are good candidates for the procedure. 100% hair removal may not be possible, but a very large percentage of hair can be removed permanently if the client follows through with the treatment protocols. It is never a one time treatment and a series of treatments may be required to achieve your goals. Follow-up treatments may also be required once or twice a year to treat new hair cells that may be activated by the body as it ages.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?
In some areas, such as under the arms, there is little to no discomfort during the laser hair removal treatment. For some sensitive areas, there may be a light to moderate pinching feeling during the treatment on the area. A topical numbing cream can be used prior to your appointment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The laser effectively destroys only those hairs that are in the active growth phase. Because individual hair grows at different rates, several treatments are necessary to successfully destroy all hair follicles. Most of our clients need 6–8 treatment sessions, spaced about 6 weeks apart.
I HAVE VERY LIGHT / VERY DARK SKIN. CAN I USE LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Our laser has two wavelengths that allows us to treat a wide variety of skin types. Darker skin types do carry a few extra risks and the procedure can be more painful, but is still very effective. We do not recommend tanning during the process as it can add extra colour to the area and interfere with the treatment.
CAN I SHAVE OR WAX BETWEEN LASER TREATMENTS?
You can shave between treatments but it isn’t recommended to wax or pluck for best results.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL SAFE FOR ALL BODY PARTS?
Yes, we can safely do a laser hair removal treatment on any body part with unwanted hair.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Laser hair removal generally doesn’t have many side effects, however, you may see redness, swelling, or heat in the area. You can use an icepack or take an anti inflammatory to help with these symptoms.
