Removing unwanted hair from your face or body is now easier and more comfortable than ever before. Instead of shaving, tweezing, or waxing, and instead of going through painful electrolysis, you can now enjoy comfortable, long-term hair removal.
The Thunder Bay Laser Clinic uses the Aurora hair removal system, which utilizes advanced technologies based on proven science. It treats unwanted hair safely, quickly and very effectively, eliminating the hair at root level and severely reducing regrowth.
Aurora is based on a unique technology, called ELOS, which utilizes the synergy of electrical energy and light to remove hair more gently, more effectively than any other system. The Aurora uses less energy, which means more safety, causes fewer, milder side effects, is more comfortable before and after treatment, and removes more hair in fewer treatments.
Some patients have enjoyed being hair-free for many years.
How Does Pulsed Light Hair Removal Work
At the Thunder Bay Laser Clinic, our Pulsed Light hair removal system, the Aurora, is a faster, gentler way to remove unwanted hair with long-term results. It applies precisely controlled pulses of energy (electrical and light, with cooling), reaching into the hair follicles that lie beneath the skin. The energy heats the hair, right down to the bottom of the root, destroying it without damaging surrounding tissue or skin.
Am I a Candidate
Your Thunder Bay Laser Clinic technician can customize a treatment to exactly match your hair and skin colour and type. As long as there is some colour in your hair (even blonde hair has enough colour), the our Aurora system will be effective in removing your unwanted hair.
How Long Does Treatment Take
Your Pulsed Light Hair Removal appointment will vary in time, depending on the number of treatment areas. A typical appointment can range anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour.
Does It Hurt
Each pulse, which lasts less than one second, produces a slight tingling feeling. In particularly sensitive areas, such as the upper lip, it may feel like a quick, light pinch. The treatment is not painful, but may cause some mild discomfort. Your Technician can offer a topical anesthetic, if necessary.
What Are the Side Effects
The energies used by Aurora (electrical and light) are both commonly used in a range of medical and cosmetic procedures and have proven to be safe. Most people experience no side effects at all, though a few exhibit some short-term local reddening of the surrounding skin. You can return to your regular activities immediately after treatment, although it is advisable to keep the skin protected from exposure to direct sunlight for a short period of time.
What Results Should I Expect and For How Long
Aurora has been proven to be effective for long-term hair reduction with each individual treatment. At the end of the treatment program, you can expect your skin to remain smooth. Similar to other technologies, Aurora destroys hairs that are in the active growth phase, so repeat treatments will be needed to target hair that was not affected at the time of the previous treatments. The number of treatments you will need depends on your hair and skin color and type, and the part of your face or body treated. Your Thunder Bay Laser Centre Technician can advise you about how long it will take to reach your hair removal goals. (Usually, four to six treatments are required).
