why laser hair removal (LHR)?
For many of us, unwanted hair growth is a daily chore that takes up time and energy and results in razor burn and cuts. Laser hair removal provides a solution to this problem by eliminating the need to shave, spend time looking for razors, and creating sensitive skin.
How Does LHR Work?
Kelowna laser hair removal means using advanced technology to permanently remove hair. This works differently than waxing or shaving because lasers target the hair follicle and stops its ability to continue to grow resulting in smooth and flawless skin. Because hair follicles all grow in cycles, it takes on average 6 treatments to see the best results but many people see great results in as little as one treatment.
At our Kelowna Skin Care Clinic, we a laser hair removal device that combines 3 wavelengths.
3 combined wavelengths covering the optimal treatment spectrum
Proven safety record
Safe for all skin types, even tanned skin
TRIO CLUSTERED DIODE TECHNOLOGY:
The Soprano ICE Platinum offers the synergistic benefits of the 3 most effective wavelengths for hair removal, each targeting different structures within the hair follicle. The 3 main anatomical targets include the Bulge, Bulb and Papilla. What does this mean? Better results in fewer sessions!
ALEX 755NM WAVELENGTH
For the widest range of hair types and color.
The Alexandrite wavelength offers more powerful energy absorption by the melanin chromophore,
making it ideal for the widest range of hair types and color- especially light-colored and thin hair. With more superficial penetration, the 755nm wavelength targets the Bulge of the hair follicle and is especially effective for superficially embedded hair in areas such as the eyebrows and upper lip.
SPEED 810NM WAVELENGTH:
Half the treatment time.
The classic wavelength in laser hair removal, the 810nm wavelength,offers deep penetration of the hair follicle with high average power, a high repetition rate and a large 2cm spot size for fast treatment. The 810nm has a moderate melanin absorption level making it safe for darker skin types. Its deep penetration capabilities target the Bulge and Bulb of the hair follicle while moderate tissue depth penetration makes it ideal for treating the arms, legs, cheeks and beard.
YAG 1064NM WAVELENGTH:
Specialized for darker skin types.
The YAG 1064 wavelength is characterized by lower melanin absorption, making it a focused solution for darker skin types.At the same time, the 1064nm offers the deepest penetration of the hair follicle, allowing it
to target the Bulb and Papilla, as well as treat deeply embedded hair in areas such as the scalp, arm pits and pubic areas. With higher water absorption generating a higher temperature, the incorporation of the
1064nm wavelength increases the thermal profile of the overall laser treatment for most effective hair removal.
