Laser Hair Removal Ottawa
For many years men and women had to struggle with unwanted hair. Over the years, people came up with multiple ways to deal with this problem such as shaving, waxing, threading and such.
However, these treatments are often uncomfortable, require frequent maintenance, not long-lasting, and, over time, take up a lot of finances. In addition, these treatments can cause ingrown hairs, folliculitis, scar tissue, as well as create body insecurities.
At Tru You Medical laser and skin clinic, we offer a better solution to remove unwanted body hair: Ottawa laser hair removal.

Avoid tanning as much as possible. Do not sunbathe, use tanning beds or self-tanning solutions at least 2 weeks before treatment. Use at least 30 SPF sunblock when out in the sun.
Shave the area to be treated thoroughly the day prior to treatment or the morning of the treatment. Leave the areas that you don’t want to be treated unshaved.
Do not pluck your hair for at least 4 weeks before treatment. You can clip or shave as much as needed.
Do not use harsh products on the treated area 3 days before the treatment. For example, retinoids, peelers, exfoliants and bleachers.
Have clean skin, free of deodorant or creams.
You can experience symptoms of irritation such as redness, itchiness, or raised pink follicles. These are normal symptoms after hair removal sessions. These are signs that the laser hair removal treatment was successful, and the hair follicles are therapeutically damaged. You can apply over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream as per label instructions or use ice if needed. These symptoms will only last a few hours to a few days.
On day 3, you can start exfoliating your treated area to promote hair extraction. You might notice that hairs fall out of their follicles. That is normal.
Avoid tanning as much as possible. Do not sunbathe, use tanning beds or self-tanning solutions at least 2 weeks after the treatment. Use at least 30 SPF sunblock when out in the sun.
When Will You See Results?
The first few weeks after the treatment you might see no difference in hair growth. That is normal. The treated hair needs a certain period of time to fall out. After a few weeks, you will notice that the hair that is left is growing slower and finer. With each following treatment, you will see less and less hair. AWESOME!
Follow Up Treatment
In order to get maximum results, it is very important that you follow the schedule created for you. The frequency of visits can be different for each client and depends on the individual’s hair growth cycle. After each treatment, your clinician will provide you with the next suggested date for your appointment.
Frequent Laser Hair Removal Questions
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Laser hair removal results in a permanent reduction in hair growth but it highly depends on our health. Overall, in a healthy individual, the results will be long-lasting. However, if the body goes through hormonal changes like newly diagnosed diabetes, thyroid issues, pregnancy, or severe stress, then hair growth can be stimulated.
How long does laser hair removal last?
Laser hair removal results are long-lasting but may require a touch-up session every few years or so.
Does laser hair removal hurt?
Triton laser hair removal technology is equipped with a built-in cooling system, which makes the treatment much more comfortable than any other laser hair removal technology.
The comfort level is different for each client, depending on the individual pain tolerance. The majority of clients are able to tolerate the treatment very well. In addition, we customize the treatment plan and never rush through the process in order to meet each client's needs.
How does laser hair removal work?
Laser hair removal is a process that uses light to permanently burn the hair follicles. At any given time, our follicles are in different growth stages.
Only those hair follicles that are in the anagen phase (active growth) during the treatment can be removed, - that is why it takes multiple sessions to remove all the hair. It is important to try to follow your individual schedule in order to achieve the best results.
How many sessions for laser hair removal will I need?
Clients see great improvement after the first treatment. The amount of hair decreases, and the hair that remains grows much slower, thinner, and softer. To achieve maxim results, the number of sessions can vary. It will depend on the hair colour, skin colour, tolerance of the client, and adherence to the schedule. It is safe to say that 6-8 sessions can remove up to 95% of hair.
What are the side effects of laser hair removal?
The most common side effects of laser hair removal are very mild and short-term. Clients can experience redness, itchiness and raised hair follicles, which look like red goosebumps. Very rare side effects include blisters, burns, and hypo/hyperpigmentation. Even though these are rare, they do happen. That is why we always do a thorough health assessment and always start with a light treatment on the first visit in order to get to know your skin better.
