Say Good By to Unwanted Hair

Laser hair removal in Montreal

I decided to explore permanent hair removal many years ago. 

I select pulsed light hair removal or IPL hair removal on my legs, bikini, and underarms and yet had little knowledge of light-based hair removal treatments and the numerous types of hair removal laser technologies on the market. I attended more than 12 sessions—several incredibly painful sessions—and noticed very few improvements. Certainly, my hair thinned out somewhat and I spotted a few bald patches here and there, but the pain and thousands of dollars spent were not worth it. I was very disappointed, but I managed to accept the fact that I would be forced to have a long-lasting relationship with my razor.

Different types of laser hair removal technologies. 

 

Ever since I’ve researched for different hair removal technologiesand discovered that some are more advanced and thus more effective than others. Light radiation is used in both IPL and laser hair removal techniques to heating the follicle, eventually weakening it to the point where it is permanently incapable of growing new hair. IPL hair removal, from what I understand, uses a broadband pulsating light source rather than a true laser, which is a concentrated beam of light. The latter is often better suited to targeting darker, coarser hair. This might explain why IPL was not the most successful and right laser treatment method in my situation.

hair growth

Hair growth varies depending on your desired target area. For exemple, areas that grow faster – like your upper lip or armpits – will require appointments every 4 weeks; areas with slower growth, such as the back, should have sessions scheduled 6 weeks apart. For areas with mid-level growth rate, treatment sessions can be scheduled every 5 weeks.

Although my razor and I have a very stable relationship, I’m frequently left wanting more. Whereas I’d prefer not to struggle with ingrown hairs, cuts, and lumps, especially during the summer months in heat and humidity when I want to be smooth and bikini-ready at all times. The issue is that I’m Indian. My hair is dark, thick, and all over the place.

I decided to try hair treatment laser at The Best spa

I chose to try laser hair removal in Montreal at O Spa Boutique this summer. As I was nervous after my previous experience with hair removal, I decided to start with my underarms and wait to see results before doing the rest of my body. I’m not an expert on the different types of laser hair removal machines, but O Spa Boutique’s technology impressed me. Their Cynosure Elite Laser is outfitted with a Zimmer cooler, known as Cryo Therapy, this allows for increased patient comfort. The Zimmer Cooler is unique in that it can cool the skin before, during and after treatment.

After just one session, I was amazed to find that the amount of hair on my underarms had noticeably decreased! After three sessions, I’m almost completely hairless. To say the least, I am astonished by the results!

does laser hair removal hurt?

Also I realized that pain and epilation laser hair removal are no longer synonymous – thanks to advances in technology, getting laser hair removal doesn’t have to be a painful experience. After undergoing laser treatment at O Spa Boutique, i was surprised to find out just how little pain I felt throughout the experience. Yes, there are some spots that will be more sensitive than others (namely the bikini area), but with appropriate numbing cream, it’s possible to make the process almost totally pain-free.

While some clients find the sensation of laser pubic hair removal similar to the snap of a rubber band against the skin, others who are more sensitive may describe it as slightly uncomfortable. Nevertheless, leg laser hair removal is considered less painful and more tolerable compared to other hair removal methods.

Experiencing the results of a process is often well worth the discomfort. Despite my lack of confidence in the past process, I am eager to reap the reward of having a permanently bald face from nose down and to ditch my razor for good. See our laser deals here.
