How laser hair removal works.

Cynosure laser hair removal treatments target and destroy body or facial hair at the follicles, leading to impressive and immediate results. This is done without damaging the epidermis, leaving smoother, hair-free skin.

During the treatment, the laser device sends a beam of concentrated light into hair follicles, targeting the pigment within them. This concentrated treatment ensures the hair is immediately destroyed without causing any damage to the surrounding skin. 

It is essential to note that the laser only affects hair that is actively growing. Since not all hair is in the same growth stage at the same time, we recommend multiple sessions to achieve permanent results. 

After one session, many clients notice a drastic reduction in the amount of hair as soon as two weeks after their first treatment.

Safety and Regulations

Laser hair removal is considered safe when performed by an experienced and qualified practitioner. However, the safety of this treatment can vary depending on hair colour, skin type, and the quality of equipment being used.


In Canada, laser therapy clinics are advised to purchase hair removal devices with an active Canadian medical device license in line with the Medical Devices Regulations. Compliance with this requirement is voluntary, so choosing a reliable laser facility that uses medical-grade lasers and employs fully trained and certified technicians is crucial.

At BCI Clinic, we use Cynosure, a medical-grade laser device that employs dual wavelengths. As a result, the laser hair removal treatments performed at our Ottawa clinic are safe for all skin types and most hair colours.

During Your Laser Hair Removal Session

Laser hair removal treatments with Cynosure are generally well-tolerated. For more sensitive clients, we use cooling methods to soothe discomfort. The entire session will take between 15 minutes and an hour, depending on the area being treated.

We often recommend clients undergo six to eight laser hair removal treatments four to eight weeks apart to achieve permanent results.

Aftercare and Recovery

Immediately following a laser hair removal appointment in our Ottawa clinic, it is common for clients to experience slight redness and sensitivity, which should go away within 24 hours. The treated hair should begin to shed approximately two weeks after the procedure.

While clients can immediately return to most regular activities post-treatment, there are some essential guidelines to follow to ensure proper healing and minimal discomfort:

  • Apply SPF 30+ and moisturizer to protect and soothe the area.
  • Avoid excessive exercise for two to three days after the treatment.
  • Avoid harsh skin care products like retinoids or exfoliants for five to seven days after the treatment.
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure for four weeks after the treatment.
  • Start exfoliating one week after the treatment to encourage the hair to shed and prevent ingrown hairs.
