AFTER THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL PROCEDURE
POST-LASER HAIR REMOVAL CARE
After a treatment, you may notice a slight reddening surrounding your hair follicles in the target area. This redness typically goes away after an hour. We clean the treated area with a mild cleanser immediately following a treatment, and it’s important you keep the area cool for 24 hours. You should also avoid exercising or sweating, if possible. As with any laser treatment, it is also important to use sunscreen or clothing to protect the treated area from the sun.
For the weeks following your laser hair removal treatment, you may notice some growth in the treated areas. Not to worry! These are the detached hair follicles that are being expelled, and will generally fall out easily in the shower. If they do not easily fall out, this means they weren’t targeted in the first treatment cycle. They will be targeted in your next treatment, when they are in their active growth stage.
With our latest Technology, treatments are only repeated every 6 to 8 weeks, depending on hair growth and density. Most people require 6 – 8 treatments for the best results.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL AND INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL): THE DIFFERENCE
Ottawa’s downtown Dermis location uses Cutera’s® latest, state-of-the-art ExcelHR® dualwavelength laser for our laser treatments. The combined experience of our medical aestheticians and our state-of-the-art technology means you are in the best hands.
If this technology doesn’t sound familiar, that is likely because many other Ottawa clinics use Intense Pulse Light (IPL) machines for their laser treatments. IPL was created for photofacials, treating everything from wrinkles to sun damage, but it is sometimes also used for hair removal. However, with IPL your hair is burned off the surface of your skin; the wavelength of light does not penetrate to the core of the hair follicle, which means the follicle will not be permanently killed. IPL can burn darker skin tones, and you have to stay out of the sun for four weeks before and after a treatment.
At Ottawa Dermis Advanced Skin Care, we know that Cutera’s ExcelHR dual Wavelength Nd:YAG/Alexandrite laser is the safest, most effective, and most comfortable option for hair removal.

F.A.Q. LASER HAIR REMOVAL
What is Laser Hair Removal?
What type of laser do you use?
Is laser hair removal safe for my skin?
How many treatments would I need?
The anagen phase is described as the active growth stage for hair. It is also when hair is strongest, making it the ideal time to be treated for laser hair removal. Catagen is the shortest of the growth cycle phases, lasting 1-3 weeks on average. About 1-3% of hairs are in catagen at any given time. During catagen, the hair follicle will shorten or regress to a fraction of the length it was in anagen. At this time, the dermal papilla detaches from the hair structure; causing the hair fiber to stop growing. Hairs that were uprooted during catagen will typically be shed or released during telogen. The telogen phase can last 1-3 months on average, depending on how long the dermal papilla remains in resting mode. Around 10% of hairs are in the telogen phase at any given time. Since the hair fiber has no root in telogen, hairs may easily be removed or fall our through brushing, combing, shampooing or plucking. If a hair stays put until the end of the telogen phase, it will be pushed out of the follicle when the next anagen phase begins.
Laser hair removal treatments can only effectively produce 80%-90% long term hair reduction if the unwanted hair is treated during the anagen (growth) phase.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
What are the benefits of laser hair removal?
Clients who suffer from ingrown hair or skin discolouration related to coarse hair, will also be happy to know that one of the most effective ways to target these concerns is laser hair removal.
