Hair Removal FAQ
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal treatments send highly controlled laser energy to the root of each hair follicle just below the surface of the skin. The laser energy is absorbed, heating and destroying the follicle root, preventing the hair from growing back. Our laser treatment is safe. No damage is done to the tissue surrounding the hair follicles.

Pigment in hair shaft absorbs the laser energy. The resulting heat damage each follicle.
Damaged hairs are eliminated with excellent long-term results
Why are multiple treatments required?
Every hair follicle goes through three different stages during its lifecycle. Because hair is most vulnerable to laser hair removal treatment during only one of those stages, several rounds of treatment are typically required to completely destroy each follicle.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Prior to treatment, hair above the surface of the skin is removed, leaving the laser treatment to target only the follicle roots below the surface. Each pulse of laser is accompanied by a slight sting or pinch. Topical anesthetics are available, but most patients do not require them. To help patients manage the slight twinges of discomfort, Laser Essential & Skin Care clinic offers the cooling effects of our Synercool Cryotherapy system, which blows a steady stream of cool air onto the area being treated making the procedure more comfortable . We are one of a few clinics in Toronto that uses the Zimmer Cryo Chiller technology, and we offer it to patients free of charge.
Can laser hair removal treat all kinds of hair?
Yes. The lasers used at Laser Essential & Skin Care clinic are state-of-the-art, FDA-approved and allow us to customize each treatment based on a patient’s hair color, texture and body location. Any hair with at even the smallest amount of pigment in it can be treated effectively. Grey, red and blonde hair may have some effective permanent reduction but generally not effective.
Is laser hair removal safe for people of all skin types?
At Laser Essential & Skin Care, we are able to treat all skin types effectively. For patients with darker skin tones, we use YAG laser treatments in our Toronto facility. YAG lasers use three wavelengths of light at multiple output levels to enable safe and effective hair removal. Whether you have light or dark skin, our laser hair removal treatment can remove unwanted hair from different areas of your body.
What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
Our laser hair removal treatment is safe for all skin types, but there may be a few minor side effects following treatment. Side effects, although rare, may include slight reddening or swelling on the treated skin. Even less common is blistering or bruising. In nearly all cases where these symptoms are present, the condition typically disappears within hours. Patients may notice that skin becomes slightly lighter or darker following a treatment, but generally, a person’s normal pigment returns within a few weeks. To minimize the risk of these side effects occurring, Laser Essential & Skin Care specialist encourages patients to limit their exposure to sunlight before and after treatments.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments varies for each patient and depends on a variety of factors including hair type, skin type and the stage of hair follicles being targeted. Typically, five to seven treatments are necessary to achieve the desired results of completely eliminating unwanted hair.
Will I be restricted from activities such as work following a laser hair removal treatment?
Typically, no. Patients can generally return to work immediately or resume all regular activities following treatment, although Laser Essential & Skin Care specialist does encourage patients to avoid strenuous physical activities 24 hours pre- and post treatment.
