Laser Hair Removal Facts
December 2016 - January 2020
Aesthetic Solutions in Red Deer offers safe and effective laser hair removal treatments for both men and women. Because laser hair removal is a more permanent solution for hair removal than shaving and waxing it’s quickly become the desired choice for those who want to eliminate hair and enjoy the added side-effects of smoother skin without ingrown hairs.
For consumers, choosing this type of service seems as simple as finding a business advertising laser hair removal. The fact is many such places are using older laser technology (poor results, more painful) and we have seen many people come to us after being disappointed with the results from such lasers. We recommend seeing laser clinics overseen by physicians as you are more likely to find better equipment and staff who are properly trained. Laser equipment is very expensive and it’s difficult for smaller non-physician spas to compete when such an investment is required. Laser treatments can also be very dangerous when in the hands of unskilled practitioners. At the very least do your homework when choosing a service performed by a laser.
We have chosen the Elite MPX laser system - the gold standard for lasers as it is one of the most advanced in the world. The Elite MPX laser holds up to the highest standards because it tends to be less painful, featuring a chiller that blows cool air before and after hair is removed, and it's very fast. This laser also works well for a range of light to dark skin types delivering efficient and accurate results.
Our laser hair removal is competitively priced and we welcome you for a free consultation where we can discuss your treatment options as well as your goals and expectations.
The time required for any hair removal treatment will greatly depend on the individual and the size of the targeted area of the body.
Legs and backs are typically treated in about an hour, bikini area and the arms can be treated in 20-25 minutes while facial hair can be treated in 10-15 minutes.
The number of treatments will depend upon the coarseness of the hair, the stage of growth, the area of the body being treated, and the skin and hair color, which all vary from person to person. On average, most people can will see a 70 to 90% hair reduction after a series of 8 to 12 treatments. Most skin types require 4 to 8 treatments with 4 to 6 weeks in between treatments.

You may experience slight redness and swelling around the hair follicles, this is completely normal and a sign that the treatment area has responded well to the treatments. This symptom is only temporary and will subside within 12 to 48 hours.
Aesthetic Solutions can reduce hair density. Using the Elite MPX which shoots a beam of light energy, absorbed by the blood vessels, the melanin and the pigmentation of the hair follicle. When the light is absorbed by the follicle, it converts to heat and the follicle is then destroyed by the heat. Once destroyed, it can no longer re-grow hair. Because the laser's sequential wavelengths can be carefully adjusted, the surrounding tissues around the hair follicle are intact, leaving the skin smooth and soft to the touch. Laser hair treatment is fast and results in smoother skin, free of unwanted hair.
