Purchasing one of the first Laser Hair Removal machines in Canada in 2000, you can feel assured that we take the time to get to know you, educate you and give you the best advice when it comes to Laser Hair Removal.

Unwanted hair on the face and body can be a persistent concern for women and men alike, even in the winter. If you're tired of the ingrown hairs and razor bumps from shaving or waxing, then laser hair removal can offer you a better and more permanent solution.

Our Markham area medspa offers state-of-the-art laser hair removal using the GentleMax Pro®. This advanced system ensures a safe, effective, and comfortable laser treatment for all skin types, including darker and ethnic skin.

We're Experts at Treating Darker and Ethnic Skin Types

Expertise matters when it comes to treating ethnic skin. With over 20 years' experience under our belt, our technicians have developed a deep understanding of the unique needs of darker and ethnic skin types when it comes to permanent hair removal.

Our team is well-versed in the intricacies of treating various skin tones, ensuring safe and effective results for all our clients.

What makes us advanced laser hair removal experts? Darker skin types contain more melanin, which can absorb more laser energy, potentially leading to skin damage if not handled correctly.

Our GentleMax Pro® system offers precisely calibrated setting for each skin type, allowing our technicians to provide effective hair removal while protecting the skin.

Two decades of experience coupled with precision ensures minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, burns, or other complications, making the procedure safe for everyone, even for those with sensitive skin.

 

How Laser Hair Removal Works

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses concentrated laser light energy to target and destroy hair follicles. The process involves directing the laser at the pigment (melanin) in the hair shaft.

Once the light energy is absorbed by the pigment and converted into heat, it damages the hair follicle inhibiting future hair growth.

The hair growth cycle consists of three phases: anagen (growth), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting). Laser hair removal is most effective during the anagen phase, when the hair is actively growing.

Multiple sessions are required to catch each hair in the anagen phase, ensuring comprehensive permanent hair reduction over time.

GentleMax Pro® Laser Hair Removal for All Skin Types

The GentleMax Pro® laser hair removal technology features two laser frequencies for different skin types : the Alexandrite laser for lighter skin and the Nd:YAG laser for darker skin tones.

This dual-wavelength approach allows for a tailored approach to suit individual skin types, hair colours and textures (coarse hair vs. fine hair) ensuring optimal results.

Alexandrite Laser 755 nm

This highly effective laser hair removal treatment targets the melanin in light skin, providing precise and efficient hair removal with excellent results and minimal discomfort during treatment.

Nd:YAG 1064 nm

This laser's longer wavelength penetrates deeper into the skin, making it safer and more effective for darker skin tones, minimizing the risk of skin damage or pigmentation changes such as PIH (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation).

Dynamic Cooling

GentleMax Pro® also incorporates a dynamic cooling device (DCD), which cools the skin before and after each laser pulse. This cooling mechanism enhances patient comfort and protects the skin, making the procedure virtually painless while reducing the risk of side effects.

Choose Full Body Laser Hair Removal or Small Areas

No matter the area size, the GentleMax Pro® system can help you achieve the smooth skin you desire.

Full body treatments can address larger areas such as the full legs laser hair removal, as well as back, arms, or chest, providing a comprehensive solution for those seeking to eliminate hair from multiple regions.

If you're interested in targeting smaller, more specific areas, the GentleMax Pro® is equally effective. Common treatment areas include the underarms, bikini line, full face or upper lip. These precise treatments are ideal for addressing stubborn hair growth in areas that are more visible.

Our skilled technicians always work with you to develop a personalised treatment plan, ensuring that all your hair removal goals are met. We understand that every client is unique, and we strive to provide customized solutions that deliver the best possible results.
