LASER HAIR REMOVAL

textline-01

Laser hair removal works by sending a beam of intense light to a hair follicle with enough power to destroy the root. The surrounding skin is cooled with a patented cooling tip on our latest generation Cynosure®/Palomar Icon and the Lux Rs IPL hand-piece. With this laser, clients have the power to remove hair from specific areas.

WHY IT WORKS


With the use of Intense Pulsed Light, a light beam targets the hair follicles. The ideal candidate for laser hair removal therefore has dark hair and light skin. The laser will not work on people with very fair or white hair.

"This is a note to let you know how pleased I am with my Micro-fractional laser treatment given by Dr. Biro. I found it to be nearly painless during the treatment of about one hour or so and of course no pain at all with the healing process."

I've been seeing Dr. Andy for botox and facial treatments since 2011. As a person, he is very considerate and caring; capable of interesting, lively banter - a nice to know individual. As a professional, he is quite disciplined and knowledgeable. His clinical approach is cautious and discerning - using the most appropriate treatment of the many options and products offered by his practise. He does good work and I trust him. I do not look anything like a 60+ woman - I look 40-ish.... which is quite empowering.

Doc Andy is the best. Doesn't make you feel insignificant for wanting to look your best. The best part is he won't allow you to pump yourself up with more than you need like some will because its all about the money. You will have a great experience. The staff are friendly and super helpful. Book early. He's so popular here in Qualicum Beach it takes time to get into see him.

FAQ’S ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Why is IPL the treatment of choice for hair reduction?

IPL gives you a relatively long-lasting result. Traditional hair removal methods, such as waxing, shaving, depilatory creams, plucking/tweezing, sugaring, and stringing provide only temporary results — some for fewer than 24 hours.  *Individual results may vary.

What does the treatment feel like?

Light emerges through a sapphire crystal window that is pressed against your skin, which gives you a little “pinch” as the device pulses. Most people experience mild discomfort during a hair reduction treatment, and many of our clients report that the sensation is more comfortable than waxing, electrolysis, or even tweezing!

Are some people better candidates than others?

Because the laser light targets the substance that gives skin and hair dark colour (melanin), the ideal candidate for IPL hair removal would have dark hair and light skin. The IPL will not work on people with very fair or white hair.

How long does an IPL hair removal treatment take?

A number of factors determine the length of time for a treatment. The size of the area to be treated factors into the time required, as does the amount of preparation. Commonly, legs and backs take an hour to an hour and a half, while an upper lip may require eight to 10 minutes.  The front of the neck or underarms can take as little as 20 minutes.

How many IPL hair removal treatments will I need?

It often takes six to eight treatments to achieve an attractive clearance of an area.  Some clients are happy after four treatments, and a small minority have needed more than eight. This is much less than how many treatments would be needed with the electrolysis method.

Why would I choose IPL hair removal instead of electrolysis?

The answer is simple. IPL hair reduction takes less time and many of our clients report it as being a much more comfortable process. While electrolysis is effective, it works by inserting a tiny needle into each hair follicle, one at a time, and delivering a jolt of electricity. With a hair reduction laser, the window on the laser head allows the laser to treat many hair follicles in a single pulse.
