Laser Hair Removal

Dr. McGillivray and Dr. Lupin invested in their first laser hair removal devices together more than 10 years ago! Today, laser hair removal is one of the world’s most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures. The world over, the LightSheer® DUET™ is reputed as the best-in-class laser hair removal device. This medical-grade laser ensures optimal safety and efficacy. Multiple hand pieces enable a customized treatment experience; a large, vacuum-paired hand piece treats large areas (like the legs and back), while a small, chill-tip hand piece targets smaller, more delicate areas, all with little to no pain and in record time.

How it Works

In as few as 6 to 8 treatments, medical-grade laser hair removal can permanently reduce unwanted hair from virtually any area of the body. Before treatment, patients are encouraged to shave only – no tweezing, waxing, etc., which would remove hair follicles. Laser hair removal works by emitting a wavelength of laser energy, specific to the colour and depth of the hair. The hair within the follicle absorbs the laser energy. Over several days, disabled follicles are ejected from the body. Because the laser selectively treats hair colour, very light hair (blond, red, grey, etc.) are not likely to respond to laser hair removal. Additionally, for safety, patients should avoid tanning throughout their course of laser hair removal treatments.
