Laser Hair Removal Vancouver

Chuck the razor! Use the laser!

If you are looking for laser hair removal in Vancouver, you’ve come to the right place. Have you ever considered how much of your life is spent bent over in the shower, razor in hand, cramping and straining to reach areas you can’t actually see without a hand mirror and a miner’s headlamp?

There is an easier solution available to you at the Anti-Aging Medical and Laser Clinic in Vancouver — laser hair removal.

What if I told you that for under $800 you could get rid of most of your unwanted bikini hair and even create your own “Designer Bikini!” You could sport a sexy heart and later turn it into a landing strip…why not? How about a love triangle? One friend of mine lasered a thin strip and tattooed a tiny lawnmower next to it! If this kind of adventure doesn’t thrill you, at least reducing the hair to your panty line can make a major difference.

The latest trend is “taking it all off” but not everyone, (mostly their mothers) think this is a good idea. However, for the men, the jury says “get rid of it!” Gay or straight men– it’s all the same. If you don’t laser, get yourself a good hair trimmer and keep in short. We are one of the few clinics in town that offer “Balls and All” laser hair removal. So don’t be shy guys, the women will love it!

Weird fact:

During the gold rush days in California, most woman never considered removing their underarm hair, although many prostitutes did it to prove that they had no body lice, however, in our current hairless culture, if you don’t find it sexy or are trying to relive your flower child era…it’s gotta go!

Underarms are easy and fast…legs, takes a bit longer but hey, who doesn’t need a few hours every 6 weeks to sit reading the latest gossip magazine, drink tea and zone out. With the combination of our numbing cream and cold air zimmer you can totally chill. (Pun intended).

Why Do You Need Multiple Laser Treatments?

Hair goes through three stages and we can only kill the follicle when it is in the “growth stage”. Of course, we have no way of knowing which hairs are in that stage at any given time so it is important that we continuously laser the area every 4-6 weeks until we have caught all of the hair in that stage. Basically, you lose about 15% of the hair in each treatment. Winter/Spring is the best time to have laser hair removal…remember you have to wait up to 6 weeks in between treatments and you can’t show up tanned! So, if you start now you can at least rid yourself of about 50-60% before hitting the beach for that one sunny weekend we get in Vancouver.

Remember you will never get rid of every hair. An 80% reduction is an excellent result and if you are consistent with your treatments, you ‘ll get there more quickly.
