The Laser Hair Removal Procedure At Toronto Cosmetic Clinic

Laser hair removal system at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic destroys or impairs targeted hair growth by delivering computer guided long-pulse laser light directly down to the hair follicles. The laser beam is absorbed into the hair follicle residing under the skin surface and destroys it with the generated heat. Since it is large in diameter, a number of follicles are affected simultaneously. An automatic cooling system removes heat from the skin surface for the duration of the procedure to protect the skin and reduce any discomfort. As a result, only a mild stinging, burning sensation is felt during the procedure. It is so minor that no anesthesia or pain medication is required. However, particularly sensitive skin can be treated to a topical anesthetic cream.

Following The Procedure

Following laser hair removal in Toronto, the target area treated with the laser is cleansed and treated. Then, normal activity can be resumed without hassle. There may be a slight reddening surrounding the follicles, but this will disappear in a matter of minutes in majority of cases. If not, any redness should gradually subside through the day. As with any treatment involving lasers, it is essential to protect the treated skin with sunscreen or clothing.

In the weeks following, hair may appear to be growing in the treated areas. This does not mean that the treatment didn't work. Because the hair follicles are lifeless, this, in fact, is simply the body attempting to cast them off to get rid of them. They will easily fall out. However, if the hair does not fall out, it is hair that wasn't targeted during the procedure.

Hair not in its growth cycle cannot be targeted by laser hair removal. Therefore, more treatments may be required in order to obtain the results desired, and will depend on hair density, hair color, skin types, the treatment area, and your hair growth cycle.
