Laser Hair Removal
In the past, remedies for unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing, electrolysis or chemical depilatories. Some are painful. Some are messy, and all are only temporary. Laser hair removal is a more effective solution. The Laser Rejuvenation Clinic and Spa was one of the first facilities in Canada to announce the use of this breakthrough technology. We are pleased to offer the High Speed LightSheer DUET that uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair and with greater speed and comfort than other methods.
The choices for Laser Hair Removal in Calgary are endless. It is important that you choose a clinic you can trust. At Rejuvenation Laser and Aesthetics our technicians are thoroughly trained to ensure they have mastered the expertise needed to accurately assess the client’s skin and hair type to determine the optimum settings, as well as the art of manoeuvring the laser to yield the best possible results.

How It Works
The High Speed LightSheer DUET is a laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The light emitted is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the light and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. And with the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional laser hair removal alternatives.
The LightSheer DUET offers two handpiece choices depending on your needs. The LightSheer High Speed handpiece uses breakthrough vacuum assisted technology in combination with diode laser light to allow rapid and comfortable treatment of large areas. A back or legs can now be treated in 15 to 20 minutes, without the need for topical numbing creams. The LightSheer DUET also has the gold standard LightSheer ET™ handpiece with ChillTip® cooling for smaller areas. The LightSheer DUET allows us to truly customize treatment for your hair type, skin type and lifestyle.
What To Expect
The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the procedure and the skin type. Side effects are rare and, if they do occur, are typically minor. They may include redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which are, in fact, positive clinical results and indicate that the follicle has responded to treatment. Most people return to normal activity right away.
Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments and results will vary. This is because the laser works best when hairs are in an early growth stage (referred to as anagen), and all the hairs are not in this phase at the same time.
