Laser Hair Removal Skin Care Treatments

What exactly is Laser Hair Removal?

To put it simply, our Vancouver laser hair removal treatment is an effective way to achieve permanent hair removal on the face and body. At our clinic we use the latest technology for the quickest, cleanest, and most effective way for removing your hair. The gentle beam of light produced by our medical-grade laser, the Palomar Starlux 500, is safe and effective enough to be used on all skin types and on virtually any part of the body.

Why this laser method?

It’s the best way to achieve permanent hair removal so you never have to shave or wax again. Say goodbye to ingrown hairs, rashes and sensitivity caused by razors.

We us the latest technology for the quickest, safest, and most effective hair removal in Vancouver. The beam of light produced by our medical-grade laser, the Palomar Starlux 500, is safe and effective enough to be used on all skin types and on virtually any part of the body.  

Is it painful?

The Palomar Starlux 500 has a chiller on the laser that allows for the most comfortable treatment on the market. Palomar developed and patented this technology and most lasers do not have this costly technology.

The chiller reduces pain by 80% during the treatment.  Most clients are amazed at how comfortable the laser is and most leave with no redness or burning feeling. Pure Light laser uses an ice pack before and after to offer even more heat reduction on the skin.

We guarantee our treatments are very comfortable even for the most sensitive clients.

How many laser hair removal treatments do I need?

Six to eight treatments are needed every 6 weeks to 2 months. Multiple treatments are needed because hair has multiple stages of growth. The three stages are called anagen, catagen and telogen.  It is important to stay on target with your laser hair removal to achieve the best end results.

Can all skin types be treated with the Palomar Starlux Laser?

Our medical-grade intense pulse light laser can treat all skin types because the laser can be manipulated to deliver the laser slowly for darker skin while still keeping the energy high. This allows a much more effective treatment.

This technology is not on all laser machines.  The Palomar Starlux 500 laser is technologically advanced allowing the technician more control over the speed and intensity of the laser guaranteeing the best end result for clients.

Why choose a Palomar Intense Pulse Light Laser?

The first FDA approved laser for Laser Hair Removal was by Palomar. The laser was an Intense Pulse Light laser.

Rita noticed while using a Light Beam laser, another form of laser hair removal technology, it was at times difficult or impossible to get good results at some stages of the growth cycle. For darker, courser hair, both types of technology worked but when the hair starts to become less dense and finer, an Intense Pulse Light laser is needed to destroy it. A laser beam does not catch the melanin in the lighter hair but an Intense Pulse Light laser does.

When opening her own clinic, Rita wanted to offer the latest technology that would offer the best end result to her clients, and because she has used many different technologies, she knew Intense Pulse Light laser by Palomar would be the best choice.

She is happy she chose Intense Pulse Light laser because she knows that her clients, no matter what type of hair, will always get great results.

The Importance of a Great Technician

Rita Moldovanos is one of the first laser hair removal technicians in Vancouver. Rita started working at one of the first laser hair removal clinics that opened over 20 years ago and has treated over 15,000 clients. Her years of experience guarantee you the best results.

Rita is certified and advises that everyone asks for proper certification before starting any laser hair removal treatment. Other clinics offering this services have opened in the last 5 years and many are not certified for operating medical grade lasers.

Currently the industry is not legislated so as a consumer it is important to ask the person who is treating you for certification and how many years they have been treating clients with the laser they are using.

Rita has many well- known dermatologists, plastic surgeons and medical doctors referring clients to her clinic. She is well known in the cosmetic laser industry and has trained many technicians in her field. She opened Pure Light Laser Skin & Body Clinic in 2008 to offer the best one on one care in a non-intimidating boutique style setting. She consults with all her clients to allow them an opportunity to ask questions about Vancouver laser hair removal and, if requested ahead of time, Rita will perform a test patch free of charge to allow clients to feel the laser and visually see how it works.

Can I receive permanent hair removal treatments while tanning?

Because melanin plays a big part of laser hair removal it is important that the laser does not heat up the skin too much to cause a burn or discomfort. When a client tans the laser will heat up the skin too fast at times and the laser will not get absorbed as well down the hair follicle. At Pure Light we advise that all clients put sun screen on ten days before your treatment. In the hot summer months, oil free sunscreen should be put on every two hours when directly in the sun.

Can I treat ingrown face and body hairs with this treatment?

This is the best solution for ingrown hair. Ingrown hairs can cause infections and deep scarring. Laser hair removal will remove ingrown hair long term. Six to eight treatments are still needed and sometimes a light AHA cream will be given to u during treatments. Do not try to treat infected ingrown on your own as it can cause deeper scars. Rita advises anyone dealing with ingrown hairs to come in for a free consultation.

How much does Laser Hair Removal cost?

Cost can be provided over the phone or by email for most areas. At times a visual of the area is needed to get an exact cost. Pure light does offer package pricing for a reduced cost per treatment. When purchasing a package a free microdermabrasion facial with peel valued at $165 is included.
