IPL is an FDA approved therapy for permanent hair reduction. Treatments are fast, hygienic and do not require numbing creams. Limited sun exposure prior to consultations is required to provide proper skin color analysis. Treatment duration is determined on an individual basis.
“It is just amazing that I don’t have to ever think about having to shave my legs or underarms ever again. All of my friends are jealous. They are all planning on getting their own legs and underarms done.” Donna , 28

How effective is laser hair removal?
Our lasers have been specifically chosen because they offer the fastest results, with the least amount of discomfort. All of our systems are FDA and Health Canada approved.
Why do I need multiple sessions?
Laser hair removal requires multiple sessions in order to achieve desired clearance. This is based primarily on biological factors – the cycle of hair growth. At Enlighten Laser, we consult every individual and recommend a program suitable for his/her needs.
Does the treatment hurt?
Clients will experience a sensation often described as a “hot pinch” or “snapping” feeling. The sensation only lasts for a fraction of a second, and you may feel warmth or a tingling sensation for a short time afterward. Our lasers use a cooling system that helps to cool the dermis and neutralize any discomfort.
Is treatment with laser safe?
Laser hair removal is very safe for the skin. There are many advances in laser hair removal technology for all skin colors. There are no long term health hazards from laser energies used in our systems. They are FDA and Health Canada approved.
What kind of results can I expect from each laser hair removal treatment?
Each laser hair removal treatment will result in a hair growth reduction. Additionally, hair will grow progressively slower, lighter, and finer with each treatment. It takes more than one treatment to affect all the follicles growing in an area. Many people achieve satisfactory clearance after few treatments, but individual results may vary depending on medical and genetic factors. Lighter colored hair may require more treatments than darker colored hair. At the end of your protocol, the desired outcome is 80% to 100% clearance in the treated area.
How frequently do I need treatments?
Laser hair removal treatments are usually performed every 4 weeks. We will design a program to fit your individual needs before beginning any treatment.
What happens after each Laser Hair Removal treatment?
Temporary pinkness of the skin lasts a very short time, and most people return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. The treated area will “shed” some hair over the next 3-4 weeks, and you may experience a period of hairlessness in the area while you wait for your next treatment.
