What is laser hair removal?
At Reveal Laser, we are excited to offer you one of the safest and most effective laser hair systems on the market. The Sheerwave IPL360 device is Health Canada and FDA-approved.
Why does this matter? Because not all lasers are created equal. Some laser hair removal uses a single wavelength of light, whereas IPL (Intense Pulse Light) uses one of the broadest ranges of light and most power to achieve amazing results in less treatments.
The best part about laser hair removal is that it’s permanent. No more waxing, no more shaving, sugaring, stinky chemical hair removal creams, pesky ingrown hairs… No more feeling prickly, forgetting to pack your razor on vacation, or having to shave your partner’s back or neck…
Forget using temporary solutions and opt for a more permanent result, effortlessly smooth skin thanks to IPL. Plus, with laser hair removal, you’ll actually save a ton of time and money long-term.

How does laser hair removal work?
At your laser appointment, you can expect a handheld “flashgun” to be smoothly passed along the skin, delivering a spectral range of light that targets your hair follicles. This technique is also sometimes called “Photo Rejuvenation”.
The laser’s light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair and converted to heat, which in turn damages the hair follicles to delay, and eventually inhibit future hair growth.
Laser hair removal is most effective on individuals with lighter skin and darker hair, however, our trained technicians and state-of-the-art machine can be effective on all skin types.
Who is laser hair removal for?
Laser hair removal is for both men and women and can be started at age 16 with parental consent.
It is most effective on clients with darker hair and lighter skin, however, it may be effective on all hair and skin types with the right expectations and treatment plans.
The most commonly treated areas on men are neck, chest, back, and hands.
The most commonly lasered area on women are armpits, lip, bikini line, and lower legs.
How many laser treatments will I need?
Results will vary from person to person, but on average you can expect to see hair growth significantly reduced after just 1 session, and completely gone after 6 to 10 sessions. This is why we sell our packages in 6-packs (and also offer maintenance 3-packs for those who need them). Sometimes, clients will come back for touchup appointments about a year later if they do experience any regrowth. Who’s ready to be smooth?
How should I prepare for my laser hair removal appointment?
Before you come in for your laser hair removal treatment, do not wax, tweeze, or epilate. In order for the treatment to work, the roots of your hair need to be exposed. Shaving is okay, as it leaves the root in place. In fact, it is encouraged to shave the area a day or two before your appointment.
