About Laser Hair Removal

At Heights Laser Centre in Vancouver, Dr. Jaffer uses only the best and most advanced equipment available. The Lumenis LightSheer diode is specifically designed for laser hair removal and is approved by Health Canada and the FDA.

By combining expertise and technology, Dr. Jaffer’s patients receive a better experience and excellent, reliable results. As part of their process of care, one of Dr. Jaffer’s experienced technicians will determine the exact wavelength and settings for your unique needs based on your skin and hair type. By customizing every session for each individual patient, results will be exceptional and long-term.
When it comes to treatment time, Vancouver men and women can come in during their lunch break for a session and be back to work in no time. More specifically, patients can expect their sessions to last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the area in which they are having laser hair removal performed.

Dr. Jaffer recommends his patients plan on having a series of laser hair removal treatments in order to get the final results they want. Because hair grows in cycles, patients should schedule their sessions about 6-8 weeks apart so Dr. Jaffer’s technicians can apply the laser to as many hair follicles as possible.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

Dr. Jaffer and his team at Heights Laser Centre in Vancouver put the comfort and safety of their patients first. While laser hair removal should not be considered painful, it can cause mild to moderate discomfort. However, Dr. Jaffer will apply a topical numbing cream or pre-cool the treatment areas before he begins. This cream will desensitize the areas to be treated and minimize any discomfort.

In addition to the measures taken to make patients comfortable during their laser hair removal treatments, Dr. Jaffer also recommends the use of pure Aloe Vera gel and ice packs for up to 48 hours after your treatment session.
