Overview

We have all experienced moments when unwanted hair has stopped us from participating fully in life—think last minute beach invitations and wearing shorts on a hot summer day. Fortunately, these moments can be avoided with laser hair removal, a permanent solution for unwanted hair. This non-invasive and safe alternative to traditional hair removal methods (such as waxing and shaving) eliminates the uncomfortable and frustrating side effects associated with these routines—not to mention the cumulative time saved once the unwanted hair is gone for good.

How it Works

Our use of the Fotona Nd:YAG laser system—which effectively targets surface treatment areas while leaving surrounding tissues unaffected—means that Kelowna and Okanagan Valley patients of all skin types can benefit from laser hair removal. The revolutionary pulse-control technology heats the targeted hair follicles below the skin’s surface; in the process of absorbing this heat, the hair follicles are destroyed. Additionally, a proprietary three-dimensional treatment pattern provides enhanced coverage for a precise and thorough treatment.

Recovery & Results

Large treatment areas are treated quickly and comfortably. Depending on the size of the area being treated, between 3-5 sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart will lead to a significant reduction in unwanted hair. Some mild redness and swelling may be present post-treatment. Patients can anticipate this to dissipate within 24 hours.
