Laser Hair Removal
Many women and men are embarrassed and annoyed by unwanted hair on the body or face. Shaving, waxing, plucking or using chemical depilatories can be time consuming, messy and painful, and often they do not produce long lasting results. Advanced technology makes life easier. That's why laser hair removal is one of the Vancouver area's most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures. This quick, comfortable treatment can permanently reduce hair growth in targeted areas, eliminating the inconvenience of other hair removal methods.

How it Works
Our Syneron lasers use a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and optical energy known as elos™ technology. This exciting development in laser technology has made laser hair removal more effective and more comfortable on most skin and hair types. Older technology was best for dark hair and light skin because it targeted the pigment in the hair shaft. This meant that those with lighter hair or darker skin might not get optimal results. With the addition of RF energy, which targets the hair follicle directly, elos-based systems can achieve superior results for a variety of skin and hair colors.
What to Expect
After you have consulted with our highly experienced technicians to determine whether laser hair reduction is right for you, Dr. Mosher will meet with you to discuss your treatment program. Next, hair in the area to be treated is closely trimmed, and the skin is covered with a cool gel. The technician passes the wand slowly over the treated area, delivering the optical and radiofrequency energy.
Treating small areas such as the face, underarms, bikini area or lower abdomen takes just a few minutes. You might even have time to perk up your skin with another treatment such as a FotoFacial. Larger areas such as the arms, back or legs can take 30 to 60 minutes. There is minimal discomfort, which has been described as a snapping sensation, followed by brief redness. We finish by applying a soothing cream with sunscreen.
While treated areas may look mildly sunburned, you can continue your normal activities after hair removal, including shaving and waxing between treatments. To avoid skin darkening (hyperpigmentation), be sure to avoid exposing the treated areas to the sun between treatments.
Approximately 6 treatments are necessary for optimal hair reduction because only the actively growing hairs are affected during each treatment session. Resting or dormant follicles will not be destroyed until the follicles begin producing mature hair. Treatment intervals are usually spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart to improve efficiency and achieve lasting hair-growth reduction.
