Laser hair removal is a really effective way to remove hair. It’s quick, really precise, and honestly, only measures at about 2/10 on my pain scale (with waxing being about an 8). Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. Unfortunately, the average cost for laser hair removal can run from $100-250 per session so it is really important to find a good deal at a reputable place!
A little while ago I had blogged about some great laser hair removal at a spa in Yorkville but in the middle of my sessions the spa closed without letting anyone know. Luckily I was able to find a new deal on Buytopia and get back to my sessions. I’m still on track to be smooth for the spring and am going to Health Medica, which has multiple locations and is a really reputable treatment centre.
The Buytopia deal went live again this morning so I wanted to make sure I shared it with you:
The Health Medica owner, Sally, gave me a quick tour of their Yonge & Eglinton location (this deal is only good for the Yorkville location) and explained the process in a lot of detail to me. Basically, the best hair for laser hair removal is dark hair on fair skin tones, but it’s still possible to do with lighter hair on darker skin tones as well. The last place I was going to had me in every 4 weeks for underarms, but Sally explained to me that something like 6-8 weeks between treatments is actually better because it allows the hairs to grow back in fully (if they are going to) so that you can zap it in the root again and make sure it never comes back!
It’s been about 2-3 months since I stopped going and my hair had started to grow back, though it was a bit thinner and not as much as before I started going for treatments. I visited Health Medica the day before my trip to Austin and I already noticed a huge difference. I can’t wait for my next few sessions!
FYI: One year of sessions should be enough for the areas included in this deal, but usually most people need about 1 treatment per year afterwards to maintain it.
