Let's Talk Hair Removal - Laser Hair Removal.



Let’s get real, shall we?

BODY HAIR.

No one likes it. If there was a way to snap your fingers and get rid of ALL body hair, I’m sure every female on the planet of the earth would do it. LOL. It’s highly annoying to go for waxing appointments every few weeks and worse if you’re doing it yourself.

It’s painful, inconvenient, and the worst part is, it grows back…

When it comes to body/facial hair, I want it taken care of for good. Like, just gone forever. K? Thanks.

So, when I heard about laser hair removal, I HAD to try it out for myself.


Not going to lie, I was skeptical at first. There are lots of great things you hear about laser hair removal, but I like to research further into things. How safe is it? Is the hair really gone forever? What damage am I doing to my skin? Etc.

ALWAYS DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.

I can’t stress enough about doing your own research when it comes to your body/skin/face, etc. Just because you see a great deal on Groupon for laser hair removal, doesn’t make the medical spa legitimate. Check out the reviews, see what people are saying, dig a little deeper.

If I’m going to put a laser light on my skin and get rid of body hair forever, I need to make sure it’s safe!

Infuse Med Spa, my all-time favourite place to go, is where I decided to try out laser hair removal. From the second you walk in the spa, you get the ultimate service. The ladies are wonderful, experienced, well-knowledged, and not to mention, beautiful!



Okay, so what is laser hair removal? Here’s what Infuse MedSpa has to say:

Pain-Free, Hair-Free is becoming one of the most recognized treatments among patients interested in laser hair removal. The Soprano®XL platform (the laser machine) is the industry’s only standalone pain free hair removal system. Permanent Reduction of Hair growth with the NEWEST Technology for all skin types.

- Soprano XL system offers a Dual chill tip allowing the treatment to be virtually Pain Free.
- Fast, Safe and Reliable for all areas of the body.

I chatted with Kavita Suri, the brains and beauty behind Infuse Med Spa, and asked her some of the typical misconception questions that we ALL want to know before getting laser hair removal done.




How does laser hair removal actually work?

The treatment is most effective with a Diode Laser, which is a True Laser for Laser Hair Removal. At Infuse Med Spa we have the latest in Technology - Soprano XL - Pain Free

If you are ready to jump on board with SMOOTH HAIR FREE skin, it is really simple. All waxing, tweezing + Nair hair removal methods must STOP as the Laser Technology works with the Hair Follicle under the skin. The Diode Laser disables the Hair Cycle growth.

The Soprano XL has a Cool Blue Sapphire tip that creates the PAIN FREE experience during the treatment. The most exciting aspect of this technology is that is works with ALL SKIN TYPES. 


How safe is laser hair removal? Does it hurt?

Laser Hair removal is safe and effective. However, it can't be treated on clients who are Pregnant, Breastfeeding, Taking Hair Growth Supplements and Photo-Sensitive Meds.

As mentioned previously, it is Pain Free. :)




Is the hair really gone forever?

Laser Hair Removal is PERMANENT REDUCTION not REMOVAL. We can never truly get rid of our hair follicles we are born with it :). Laser Hair Removal is a fantastic treatment for overall reduction, popular areas are Brazilian, Underarms, Full Face and Full Legs.


Can people of all skin tones and hair types get this treatment? Is it equally effective on everyone?

With the Technology offered at our Spa YES it works on All Skin Types and we totally take pride in that :)

I honestly can't say enough about the service over at Infuse. They just get it, you know?

So, would I recommend laser hair removal? I totally would. I've personally had a great experience with it. The hair is not completely gone yet, but I've also not yet finished all my treatments. Looking forward to the final results. I'll keep you guys posted!






A couple things to keep in mind before going to your appointment:

- Don't wear any make up to your appointment if you're getting laser done on your face. They will remove it before the treatment.

- It doesn't hurt, but it does sting a little. I mean, you are burning off your hair. If it didn't hurt a little, it would be odd.

- Avoid tanning before your appointment.

- Avoid too much sun 24 hours after your appointment.

- No waxing or plucking before or during your treatments. ONLY trimming.

- I LOVE the ice roller after my appointment. It cools the skin.


Infuse Med Spa also offers other services too. Everything from all kinds of facials, Skin Tightening, Acne Light Therapy, Tattoo Removal, Bridal Make-up, and their new Eyebrow and Lash service!


If you're ever in the Yorkville area, pop in and say hi! They are the sweetest bunch of ladies!


And if you guys have ANY specific questions about laser hair removal, let me know in the comments, or email me! I'm happy to answer them all.

Okay, time to make some ginger tea and call it a night. 

Chat soon--

Xx, kim
