In the world of aesthetic treatment, constant innovation has meant more can be achieved at less cost to comfort and wellbeing. The rise in availability of non-invasive procedures has unsurprisingly been highly popular, with its promise of an end to the extreme pain of surgery and the long, delicate healing process.
Laser hair removal is one such innovation and while it has not had to supplant surgeries that are quite as painful as some aesthetic treatments, it still guarantees extra comfort, speed and effectiveness compared to some older methods. Wax stripes that tear away patches of hair or long phases of tender, stinging manual hair plucking have been consigned to the past by the use of lasers in removing unwanted hair.
Canada MedLaser, a specialist clinic offering services in Mississauga, Vaughan and Newmarket, uses the GentleMax brand of lasers for its service that guarantees results while also being relatively quick and painless. And for a limited time, they are currently offering a 40% discount for laser hair removal bookings.
The hair removal process works by delivering light energy in the direction of hundreds of hair follicles at the same time, either damaging or destroying them and preventing the hair from growing back. The laser pulses twice per second, which is quicker than older laser therapy technologies. Due to its heightened effectiveness, Canada MedLaser suggests patients may only need between four and eight treatments – although an unlimited treatment plan is also available for more complex procedures.
While new laser therapy technologies have created extra speed and effectiveness, they have also enhanced the level of comfort for patients. The GentleMax laser uses a special cooling technology where a cryogen spray is applied to the treatment area in a quick burst, right before the laser begins pulsing. This speeds up the overall treatment because there is no need to numb or lubricate the skin beforehand. Extra treatment in the form of topical anaesthetic cream is also available if required, which can vary depending on where the treatment is being conducted – the legs, cheeks, lips, back, underarms or arms.
Anyone undergoing the GentleMax treatment could find some mild redness or swelling immediately after treatment, which is actually a sign that the follicles are responding well. Patients are also advised not to continue plucking or waxing once treatment has started, and to apply sunscreen to treated areas afterwards.
At Canada MedLaser, all therapists have had the necessary training and accreditation to carry out laser hair removal. Cases of treatments carried out by unqualified individuals have included severe cases of burns and scarring, underlining the importance of checking the credentials of any clinic before undergoing treatment.
A spokesperson for Canada MedLaser said: “At Canada MedLaser, all our staff have undergone the necessary specialized training that meets government standards and are under full supervision by qualified clinicians. People should beware of services offered by untrained, non-accredited clinics and individuals, which often advertise services at suspiciously cheap rates.”
