Laser Hair Removal in Ottawa

Laser hair removal is an effective way to remove unwanted body hair. The procedure matches a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to selectively heat (and kill) hair follicles.

At Chrysalis Rejuvenation Clinic, we offer two laser hair removal technologies in order to treat almost any patient. Our laser hair removal capabilities include:

  • Alexandrite 710 nm laser – This laser is extremely effective in treating skin types 1-3 with medium-dark hair. 6-10 treatments is the average number of sessions required for best results.
  • Elite Multiplex Platform including the NdYag and Alexandrite lasers – this top of the line technology combines two laser types to offer safe and effective laser hair treatment to all skin types.

Hair removal requires a series of treatment sessions. On the face, 4-6 treatments with one-month intervals is typical. Below the neck may require 6-10 treatments of 6 or 8 weeks apart.

We offer laser hair removal treatments as a package and are pleased to provide a free consultation to determine the time, number of sessions and cost that your treatment will require. Please contact us.


Will all of my unwanted hair be removed?
Laser hair removal can reduce unwanted hair by 80-90%. Over time, natural hormonal changes can cause new hair growth, which can also be reduced with laser technology.

How painful is laser hair removal?

The procedure is about as painful as waxing. With each pulse of light, the patient will feel something similar to a rubber band quickly snapping against the skin. Most patients do not require a topical analgesic (a numbing cream), as both of our platforms can be utilized with a cold spray to numb the skin.

Which areas of the body can be treated?
Nearly any part of the body can be treated, depending on the patient’s tolerance for the associated sensation. Above the neck areas typically include beard and moustache. Below the neck, arms, legs, back and bikini line can all be treated.

Can laser hair removal reduce the density of hair?
Yes, by undertaking only a few treatments, hair density can be reduced but the effects are not as long lasting as a complete treatment regime.

What kind of hair and skin can be treated?
Skin types 1-6 can all be treated at Chrysalis Rejuvenation Clinic.
The procedure is most effective on dark hair – no system reduces blonde, white or gray hair (in spite of what some manufacturers or advertisers may state).

How many visits will I require?
On the face, four to six treatments with one-month intervals is typical. Below the neck may require 6-10 treatments of 6 or 8 weeks apart.

What will it cost, and will it work for me?
Only an in-person consultation can determine whether you are a candidate for laser hair removal, as well as the time and cost that will be required. Please contact us for a no-charge consultation.
