LASER HAIR REMOVAL 101: Everything you need to know about laser hair removal


If you haven’t tried laser hair removal but eager to start your journey to silky smooth hair free skin. Here is everything you need to know before starting your journey.

1.) Did you know that LASER HAIR REMOVAL has more than one benefit?

If you have ever used a razor to shave your prickly legs, underarms or ANY bodypart, then you know how painful ingrown hairs can be. If you suffer from ingrowns then you know how frustrating it is. Especially if they set up shop in your “downstairs private areas.” We feel you…it can take things to a whole new level of “can you not?” Laser can reduce ingrowns by 80% after only one treatment. Also, the amount of time you save from not having to shave, you can use that extra time to work towards your goals or spend time with your loved ones.

2.) Good things happen when your patience. The reason why you need more than one treatment is because our hairs grow in three hair cycles Anagen Catagen and telogen. The follicles are in different growth stages, this is why we ask to be on schedule with your appointment dates, so we can zap the follicles at the perfect growth cycle.

3.) Do Your Homework when choosing where to get your treatments done. Most of the time cheaper does NOT mean better. Your body is a temple, treat it with the care. Make sure you research the practice and the machine used. It gets expensive if you pay a low price but have to continue going back a hundred times. At Bare we have hand-picked some of Vancouver’s Top Skilled Medical Aestheticians, who not only have years of experience, but they have the PASSION to help customers achieve fast effective results. 

We offer two types of Lasers for hair removal, however we recommend our GentleMax Pro by Candela Medical because it is the #1 laser on the market for fast,effective,hair removal for ALL skin types. We use it and love it and feel confident we can get you the desired results you want FAST. We are able to achieve 75% reduction after only 1 treatment.

4.) How many sessions? We recommend 6-8 sessions; however, some hair types require up to 10. Most of our customers are hair free around the 6-8 treatment mark.

5.) What Celebrities love this treatment? MANY! 9 out of 10 celebs have laser hair removal done. Kim Kardashian and her sisters all are hair free using the same laser we offer at Bare Laser and Skin.

6.) Does it hurt? No, we have a technique that really makes the experience surprisingly manageable with low pain. Even for the guy with the low pain tolerance. (sorry boys but girls tend to handle it better.) Our laser emits Cryogen spray the cools the skin on contact making the treatment quite comfortable.

7.) How does it really work? The laser emits a coherent or single wavelength of light therefore selectively heating and destroying the hair root. The laser emits a ‘burst of light that is absorbed by the melanin (pigment)in the hair.GentleMax Pro works by using laser technology to deliver a controlled amount of intense energy to the targeted area, safely and effectively destroying follicles without harming the skin around them. Not only does this laser work fast but it effectively removes the hair and we get amazing results on all skin types. 

8.) How to Prep for your Laser session. It is essential to avoid sun exposure. That includes all your self-tanners /fake tans ladies! No spray tans, anything that changes your skin tone. Please wait to be treated for at least 2 weeks before and a week after treatment. Clients are not to tweeze, wax or use an epilator at least 4 weeks before treatment. The area can be shaved day of laser treatment.

9.) Downtime? Little to none. Temporary discomfort, redness and swelling are possible after laser hair removal.  We ask our clients to avoid anything that attracts heat to the treatment area. That includes hot showers, sauna and working out for 24 hours. We want you to avoid sweating. The reason we say this is because this will create a warm environment which bacteria loves to multiply in.

10.) Complimentary Consultations at BARE LASER & SKIN. 

At BARE we recommend coming in for a consultation. We offer free patch tests so you can experience how it feels. If you have any questions, then we can go over everything in detail for you. Our package deals are the best option because you save 20-30% per treatment depending on what package you get. We offer Buy 5 get 1 free or Buy 6 get 2 free (total series) All year around.
