Most of us have to deal with unwanted hair on a regular basis. Whether you shave, tweeze, or wax, you are familiar with the discomfort and inconvenience of removing excess hair. These methods require an ongoing investment of your time and money, with results that are short-lived. Instead, many women and men are choosing to invest in a treatment that gets permanent results – laser hair removal. In Montreal, Dr. Linda Ptito offers laser hair removal for all skin types and colors, using some of the most advanced technology available.
If you have unwanted or excessive hair, you know that this can cause discomfort and embarrassment. Getting rid of it can sometimes be as frustrating and annoying as the hair itself. Creams are messy and smelly. Razors can leave cuts, bumps and rashes. Tweezing is tedious. And waxing is painful and expensive. These are some of the reasons hundreds of thousands of women and men choose laser hair removal each year.
Laser Hair removal involves using an intense, pulsating beam of light or laser to disable hair follicles and diminish hair growth. The light passes harmlessly through the skin, specifically targeting the hair follicle. The intense heat damages the hair follicle, inhibiting future growth. In the past, laser hair removal worked only on darker hair and lighter skin, but recent innovations have made effective hair removal an option for all skin and hair types. Advantages of laser hair removal include:
This is a very popular cosmetic procedure, due to the fact that it achieves permanent hair reduction, often eliminating the need to shave, wax or tweeze. Dr. Ptito commonly treats areas such as the upper lip, chin, back, chest, underarms, legs and bikini area.
The length of the treatment will depend on the size of the area to be treated, and ranges from 15 minutes to several hours. The laser handpiece has a cooling tip which helps protect the surface of the skin and improve comfort. There may be a slight stinging sensation from the laser, and some patients experience subtle skin redness following their procedure.
For best results, you may need several treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, since only some of the follicles are in the active growth phase at any given time. After your initial series of treatments, you should experience a significant decrease in hair growth in the treated area. Often, the hair that does re-grow is so fine and light that it is almost unnoticeable. Some patients require periodic touch-up treatments every 6 to 12 months to maintain their results.
Dr. Ptito also offers laser hair removal YAG, perfectly suited for black skin. This technology is safer and more effective than IPL because eliminates the hair without burning the patient.
