Laser Hair RemovalAt it's Best with Three Gold Standard Laser Wavelengths

Laser Hair Removal continues to be a popular choice for permanent hair reduction of unwanted hair, among all genders of all age groups. Fresh Laser Skin Studio offers a private, professional and comfortable setting for hair removal on all skin types, all genders and on all areas of the body.
 
Three main factors will determine the success of laser hair removal:

  • Up-to-date laser technology – using the correct laser wavelength, not IPL ( which is sometimes mistakenly called a laser).
  • A thorough, trained and experienced operator to set and change the parameters according to the hair colour, thickness, density, skin type and last but not least comfort level.
  • Consistent scheduled appointments to ensure treatment of the greatest percentage of hair in the active growth phase.

Our advanced laser technologies are specific for laser hair removal and provide the necessary versatility required to treat all skin types, as well as, customize for hair thickness, density and colour.


The Cynosure Elite MPX Laser is a modular unit incorporating the latest technology containing both the 755nm λ laser and the Nd:Yag 1064 nm λ laser-features include:

  • Up to an 18mm spot size- can penetrate deeper, great for thicker more terminal hair, like in the bikini area.
  • Programmable to combine the use of 2 gold standard laser wavelengths at once allowing customized treatments for tanned skin or stubborn hair!
  • Using this advanced technology of the Elite MPX gives the versatility needed to customize and safely treat all skin types, with great results!

The Palomar Vectus Laser by Cynosure, is the newest and most comfortable high speed 810nm λ diode laser available today. Features include:

  • small & large diode spot sizes- using innovative technology that provides the most uniform beam profile available today allowing for fast, comfortable and effective permanent hair reduction for a wide range of skin and hair types
  • sapphire treatment tips -contain advanced contact cooling that protects the epidermis and maintains your comfort level throughout the treatment
  • features the Skintel® Melanin Reader™ to safely optimize all hair removal treatments according to skin type, lifestyle, and ethnicity

We now have 2 Vectus lasers to better serve our clients.

To keep the most up to date with our technology we recently added the Cutera Excel HR Laser. This is the only high performance and versatile laser offering sapphire contact cooling for both the Alexandrite 755nm λ laser and the Nd:Yag 1064 nm λ.
This laser not only provides safe and effective treatments, but its also the most comfortable Alexandrite and Nd:Yag hair removal laser on the market today!

  • built in adjustable spot size ranging from 3mm to 18mm, allowing for effective treatment of all hair densities on all skin types, even tanned skin!
  • Cutera is recognized as a world leader in 1064nm technology and is the only truPulse™ 1064nm laser on the market. This technology provides consistent levels of energy enabling greater depths of penetration and lower melanin absorption. Ideal for darker or tanned skin.
  • the sapphire contact cooling acts as a local anesthetic and protects the epidermis and maintains your comfort level throughout the treatment
  • the sapphire lens provides improved efficacy as it minimizes light bending (refraction) and ensures more laser light reaches the target

No matter the colour of your skin or the area you would like to have treated, we have you covered! Why not start today for a hair free tomorrow! Consultations are complimentary and recommended for accurate pricing.

Light Based Treatments - IPL (also known as BBL & XPL)
Intense Pulsed Light (Broad Band Light & Xenon Pulsed Light) , commonly called, or mistaken as, a Laser. Not a gold standard for hair removal and is not as effective as a laser.

What is the Difference between Laser & IPL?

  1. A Laser is a highly powered light source providing a single wavelength for absorption of a specific structure or pigment (eg. Melanin in hair).
  2. IPL - Intense Pulsed Light, also known as BBL & XPL (Broad band Light & Xenon Pulsed Light) are commonly called, or mistaken as, a Laser.
  3. IPL is a very intense flash of light (similar to a flashlight),coupled with filters that block out light from a particular spectral range. Consequently, the output of an IPL system has a varying range of wavelengths with varying average power along any given range of wavelengths. The light tends to scatter and is not specific to a particular target.
  4. Therefore IPL is not highly recommended for hair removal treatments, as the light may not be absorbed by the target(Melanin in hair). Many treatments are necessary and results are variable. 
  5. If IPL is chosen for Hair Removal or Reduction, it is typically safe for Fitzpatrick Skin Types I – III , although it is not the method of choice.
  6. IPL is very good for treating photo-aging skin (scattered red and brown pigment), commonly known as a Photo Facial or Photo Rejuvenation.
  7. We use light based treatments for photo rejuvenation, while the Alexandrite laser, Nd:Yag laser, or a combination of both (Multiplex-
    advanced technology) are used for hair removal treatments.
 

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Selective phototherrmolysis is the technology used today for Laser Hair Removal systems. The laser produces a single wavelength (laser light energy) that is selectively absorbed by a specific chromophore (colour bearing target). This results in the damage or destruction of the chromophore (melanin in hair) and the tissue it occupies (reproductive cells), while maintaining the integrity of the surrounding tissue.

Is Laser Hair Removal Effective For All Hair Colours?
Only hair that has colour will contain enough melanin (chromophore) to attract the laser light energy. Therefore, Laser Hair Removal will not be effective on blonde, white, and gray hair. Red hair is variable and may not work, a test spot is recommended first.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This varies depending on the system used (type of laser or IPL), area to be treated and the growth phase of the hair follicle.
Up to 20% of the hairs will be successfully treated with each laser treatment. Fresh Laser uses an Alexandrite, Nd:Yag, and Vectus Diode laser or combination for Laser Hair Removal. For permanent hair reduction (75-95%),approximately 6-12 treatments(average is 6-8) are necessary at 6 to 12 week intervals, dependant on the treatment area. Finer hair or darker skin types may require additional treatments.

How Do I Know Which Laser Is Right For Me?
Fresh Laser Skin Studio will do an assessment of your Skin Type and a Medical history will be done during your consultation, before any laser treatment is performed.

  • The Fitzpatrick Skin Type scale, is the most common method used for assessment
  • The scale ranges from very fair (Skin Type I) to very dark (Skin Type VI)
  • Genetic disposition, reaction to sun exposure and tanning habits are the three main factors that influence your skin type and ultimately the correct selection of laser wavelength and parameters, for safe and successful treatments.
