Laser hair removal is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses laser to remove unwanted hair. Compared to the conventional electrolysis and IPL technologies, laser hair removal is more effective in terms of long-term results with fewer treatment sessions required. Common areas for laser hair removal include armpits, back, legs, upper lip, and the bikini line. However, this procedure can be applied to nearly the whole body, except for the areas around the eyes or those with tattoos.
Laser hair removal works by emitting the light of a laser, which then converts to heat that damages hair follicles. This damage will delay or inhibit the future hair growth. Multiple treatment sessions are required to achieve permanent hair removal.
The most popular laser hair removal technologies are Diode and Nd:Yag with different laser wavelengths targeting different Fitzpatrick skin types.
|Fitzpatrick skin type classification||Description|
|Type I||skin always burns, never tans, and is sensitive to UV exposure|
|Type II||skin burns easily and tans minimally|
|Type III||skin burns moderately and tans gradually to light brown|
|Type IV||skin burns minimally and always tans well to moderately brown|
|Type V||skin rarely burns and tans profusely to dark|
|Type VI||skin never burns, is deeply pigmented, and is least sensitive to UV exposure|
Fitzpatrick skin type describes a way to classify the skin by its reaction to exposure to the sunlight (refer to the table above). It is graded from I to VI with type I being the lightest ethnic skin color and type VI being the darkest skin color. For people with Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV, the Diode laser with 810 nm wavelength is the “Gold Standard” for safe and effective hair reduction. Whereas, for darker skin colors with type V-VI, the Nd:Yag laser with 1064 nm wavelength is the best option for hair removal.
We offer laser hair removal Waterloo Kitchener services with InMode DiolazeXL™ Diode 810 nm laser and Cutera CoolGlide™ Nd:YAG 1024 nm laser to achieve safe, efficient, permanent, FULL BODY hair removal for MEN & WOMEN, and for ALL SKIN TYPES.
InMode DiolazeXL™ is a FDA and Health Canada approved, innovative laser hair removal procedure with the gold standard 810 nm wavelength. It is clinically proven for its capability to provide silky smooth and hair-free skin. As the upgraded, second-generation system from InMode, DiolazeXL™ is one of the most effective laser hair removal technologies in the market today. It can safely and gently remove unwanted hair on most areas of the face and body, targeting coarse and stubborn hair for all skin types, especially for type I-IV. This new laser hair removal technology covers large treatment areas, making it fast and ideal for bigger body areas such as legs or back. DiolazeXL™ also comes with a cooling system to keep the skin cool, making the process nearly painless and more comfortable than most of other laser hair removal treatments.
Cutera CoolGlide™ is a FDA and Health Canada cleared high-powered Nd:YAG 1064 nm wavelength laser technology for the first time offering safe and effective hair removal to darker skin with skin type V-VI. CoolGlide™ is also gentle enough to treat some sensitive areas, including upper lip, chin, and bikini line. Laser hair removal with CoolGlide™ is highly effective in destroying the hair follicles beneath the surface of the skin without causing damage to surrounding tissues. The cooling feature integrated in the handpiece increases the comfort level and minimizes the adverse skin reaction commonly seen with other lasers.

The staff here are some of the kindest people I've met. I felt welcome the first day I walked in. Raquel did my laser and was very patient and ensured I knew and understood everything about the treatment. They're also one of the only service that bothered to invest in the Cutera laser machine which is imperative for Type IV skin - other places use the wrong machine and can burn you! I'm so glad I found this service and I know I'll be back for more!

I am very satisfied with the two sessions I had so far. I started seeing excellent results just after my first session. Three fourth of my facial hair reduced after the first session. Raquel and Cassie, who did my treatment were amazing. Rest of the staffs are also very pleasant and friendly. The equipment they use is really top notch. They explains every details regarding the treatment very well and answers all our concerns and queries. The packages they offer is very affordable when compared to other cosmetic centers and the results are way better. I would recommend this place to anyone who want to do laser hair removal.
