Our combination of expertise and technology provides you with a better experience and excellent outcomes.
Lumenis LightSheer for Laser Hair Removal Burnaby BC
We are dedicated to providing advanced technology. The Lumenis LightSheer system harnesses the power of a 805 nm and 1060 nm diode laser for selective photothermolysis to the target the entire hair strand, right down to the follicle, destroying it permanently.
Therapeutic lasers are emitted at the target area, which are absorbed by the pigment in your targeted hair. This inhibits the growth process by destroying all follicles that are actively in the growth phase (anagen phase). Once destroyed, the follicle cannot re-grow new hair and simply disappears for life. Follicles in the treatment area that are not actively growing, and are dormant or in the process of shedding, are not destroyed. That’s why more than one session is needed to achieve the desired results.
Treatments can eliminate 65% – 95% of hair, after you receive the recommended number of sessions in the comfortable and private setting of our Burnaby BC medical facility.
Different Applicator Sizes Available
For a more efficient experience and great results that last for life, our device is equipped with different sized applicators to target the different areas of your face and body. This means you’ll be able to target:
Full face, including the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and chin
The Laser Hair Removal Process
Your First Visit
The moment Vancouver patients walk through our the doors, they feel at home. We understand that people who are new to aesthetic care sometimes feel reluctant about sharing their concerns and their goals. During your appointment, our warm and welcoming staff members will make your first visit (and every one after that) very comfortable; our professional laser technicians will talk with you about what our technology can accomplish, review the results you can expect, prices, and outline a plan tailored to your needs during your free consultation. You have our undivided attention during each appointment you have with us!
Before Your Session
Our certified technician will provide guidelines for pre- and post-treatments during your consultation. Typically, doctors recommend the following for better results:
Do not go sunbathing or use tanning beds for a month before or afterward. The sun can darken pigment, and because the laser affects dark pigments, you could be at risk for sunburn.
Shave the target area before your procedure. Closer contact with the follicles helps the device target the pigment more effectively.
Medically Supervised Cosmetic Treatments
Our team at Heights Laser Centre takes the time to get to know you and provide high-quality care through every step of your service experience. Your comfort is one of our main priorities.
Certain patients are not good candidates, including those who:
Are taking medication that causes light sensitivity
Have naturally blonde or very light coloured hair – This will not work as the laser is attracted to dark pigment in the follicles
Have particular skin types: Type VI (dark brown or black) – This can cause burns to these patients
Your technician will take the time to answer any questions you may have about this or any other concerns you may have.
Your confidence in our care is one of our top priorities.
Your Laser Hair Removal Experience
Patients have the option of pre-cooling the areas or applying a topical numbing cream containing lidocaine (EMLA) to reduce sensation during each session with lasers. We also recommend that they use pure Aloe Vera gel and cold packs for up to 48 hours afterward.
As part of the process, an experienced medical aesthetician will determine the exact wavelength and settings of the lasers based on your skin and hair type. This customization should give you the best long-term results.
How Long Does a Session Last?
Sessions for our Vancouver patients can last anywhere from a few minutes up to an hour depending on the size of the area and the amount of unwanted hair. Because hair grows in cycles, Heights Laser Centre recommends a series of sessions scheduled approximately 6-8 weeks apart for your safety and to achieve the best possible results. This gives us the opportunity to expose the maximum number of follicles.
Please note that men may need more sessions than women.
I have gone to so many different laser hair removal technicians and I have never seen results like the ones I see with Lorea. She is very clear and honest on what to expect. I've done my face, underarms, and Brazilian and I barely have any hair growth. My skin is smoother than ever as all the skin irritation is now gone. She deserves every penny I paid!
I've been coming here for two years and have had a great experience since I started my treatment here. The staff is polite and friendly. The work which is done here is awesome and Anna in particular is one of the best. I sure will keep coming here even though I have moved downtown. It's worth the travel :)
Anna is amazing! This was my second experience doing laser hair removal. I wish I had known to come to the Heights the first time. Anna is fast, thorough and so personable. I would highly recommend the Heights for laser hair treatment.
Love it! Amazing results already on my legs and underarms. Anna is so nice and friendly. Great talks :)5/5
Can I expect to eliminate all unwanted hair after my treatments?
Burnaby BC patients will see a significant reduction by the end of the service process and will notice an improvement even after the first treatment. Ingrown hairs (that often contribute to acne) can also be eliminated.
Do laser hair removal treatments hurt?
We put customer comfort and safety first.
Because this laser treatment can cause mild to moderate discomfort, we typically pre-cool the target areas and may use a topical numbing cream. These desensitize the areas and minimize discomfort. The best results can then be achieved without pain.
It’s best to be fully recovered from anything that involve lasers that target aesthetic skin concerns before proceeding with other services, such as Botox Cosmetic or other clinically proven body contouring procedures.
How many laser treatments do I require?
The most improvement achieved from this attainable solution is after 4-6 sessions per area on the body and 4-10 sessions for the face. Men tend to require a higher number of laser treatments within those ranges than women. Sessions are spaced weeks apart for your safety.
What should I do before my laser hair removal appointment?
Don’t pluck or wax the area at least 2 weeks before your session.
Shave the target area right before your session.
Protect from sun exposure (if you’re tanned or burnt, we may need to reschedule your appointment.) This is for reducing brown spots that may appear.
Cleanse the target area right before your session.
What can I expect?
You can expect to see long-lasting results and great service from our caring and detail-oriented professional staff. You’ll notice that the target area is smooth to the touch for years to come, all without surgery!
Is laser hair removal permanent?
Yes, this permanently eliminates hair on the full face and body with minimal pain and downtime. Once targeted follicles are destroyed, they do not return for life. However, multiple sessions are needed in a single area to target all follicles.
65% – 95% Eliminated
When the pigment in your hair absorbs the light, it stops growth. Not only does it destroy the existing follicle, it also prevents regrowth. Typically, our clients will have about 65% – 95% of the follicles in the target area eliminated.
We recommend that you don’t take a hot shower or bath for 48 hours after your session. Use lukewarm water when bathing. Do not work out for 48 hours after your session. You should also refrain from exposing treated areas to the sun for at least one month. These recommendations are to reduce the risk of irritation, inflammation and infection.
Here are some other things you may need to do:
Avoid scratching or rubbing the treated area. This is to reduce the risk of inflammation and infection.
Make sure to use sunscreen that doesn’t contain harmful ingredients. It’s a good idea to opt for something unscented as well.
To minimize irritation, opt for loose and soft clothing.
If you need to wear makeup, choose mineral-based products.
Take lukewarm, not hot, showers
After each session, you will see a noticeable reduction. The hair should be gone for good after you have completed your full cycle of treatments, which will vary depending on the number and size of treated areas.
By the time that you are done, the treated areas should be smooth and stubble-free. No more plucking, waxing, and threading.
Imagine how much time and effort you’ll be saving!
